"Sitting at a table for 10, of which I knew one person, was exciting. Sharing a meal is one of the best ways to get to know a person. The social awkwardness fades once good food is in front of you. I now have new contacts, if not friends, and a better appreciation for mankind’s ability to connect with each other no matter how different we are." by Emily Key, Opelika Observer

Kate Vargas & The Reckless Daughters


Grounded in a darkly melodic, reverb-washed sonic palette of dreampop, dusty folk and junkyard blues, all carried by rough-hewn vocals and guitar playing, Kate Vargas has been attracting attention from audiences and music press alike. Receiving praise from Billboard, NPR, and Noisey, she channels a surprising array of artists, from Tom Waits and 16 Horsepower to Lana Del Rey and K. Flay. Add the sublime harmonies of The Reckless Daughters to the mix and it’s guaranteed deliciousness.

Szlachetka - June 13, 2019

61802030_2225623127553061_4452310532375969792_n.jpg

Rolling Stone hailed SZLACHETKA as one of the “10 New Artists You Need to Know”, describing his forthcoming album as “a soundtrack for both the highway and the heartland… a collection of road-dog roots-rockers and Americana ballads inspired by the people (and places) he’s left behind in the rearview mirror.”

SZLACHETKA (pronounced SLA-HET-KA) draws your gaze back to a simpler time when music was less about stylized production and more about its experiential nature. His songwriting finds inspiration in the threads that connect us, weaving a tapestry of familiar moments that pay homage to the past while leaning into a future that promises both wonder and grace. Now based in Nashville, SZLACHETKA grew up in New England and began his career as the frontman for the acclaimed roots-rock band, The Northstar Session, with whom he recorded five albums and appeared in the second season of NBC’s “Parenthood”. After nearly a decade of touring he left the band and struck out on his own, releasing his first solo album in 2014, “Waits for a Storm to Find”. SZLACHETKA’s sophomore album (produced by Grammy winning producer David Bianco), “Heart of my Hometown” is set for release in early 2018.

SZLACHETKA is a prolific songwriter who relishes the creative interplay of collaborative writing and the serendipitous connections that materialize on the road. In the last year alone, he has collaborated with Kevin Savigar (Rod Stewart, Kelsea Ballerini), Adam Wright (Alan Jackson, Lee Ann Womack), Mando Saenz (Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, Eli Young Band, Whiskey Myers, Kim Richey, Wade Bowen), Jeff Silbar (Wind Beneath My Wings), Wyatt Durrette (Zac Brown Band), Scott Underwood (TRAIN), Jamie Kent, Jamie Wyatt, Austin Hanks (Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top), Katelyn Clampett, Matt Brown, Andrew Leahey and Paul Freeman.

Throughout his travels, SZLACHETKA has shared the stage with the likes of Mike Campbell (from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), Chris Isaac, Brandi Carlisle, Huey Lewis & The News, John Waite, Pat Green, Brandy Clark, Deana Carter, Tommy Emmanuel, Albert Lee, Doyle Dykes, Chris Hillman, Laurence Juber, John Jorgensen, Lee Roy Parnell, Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven, Matthew Sweet, Greg Laswell, Johnette Napolitano, Hanson, Fishbone, The English Beat, Madi Diaz, The California Honeydrops.

KATE KELLY - 7PM | $10

KATE.jpg


Singer-songwriter Kate Kelly uses her authentic lyrics and melodies as a vehicle for her expression of the human experience. Inspired by the emotional and honest writing of solo female artists such as Norah Jones, Feist, Laura Marling and Joni Mitchell—Kate’s music takes listeners on a familiar yet uncharted journey, weaving her narrative through jazz, blues and folk styles.

In May 2016, Kate released her debut EP, New Heartbeat. This first effort is a culmination of Kate’s musical journey, capturing imagery inspired by her roots on the Gulf Coast as well as her present home in Nashville.

On top of an increasingly diverse array of both solo and full-band promotional shows, Kate has been working diligently to refine her artistic voice and to grow her musical repertoire in anticipation of a sophomore studio release.

The Wonder Of It All LP will be available in fall 2018.
