Lucie Silvas & Friends with Briston Maroney
Thu, Jan 17 8:00 pm
Lucie Silvas: With a building sheath of synth and down on it groove, Lucie Silvas digs in on "Kite," the reckless kind of women who knows no fear. Pounding, pumping, thumping, this is a dance song about a woman getting gone, an admonition to a lover that shows the New Zealand/United Kingdom-grown songstress isn't afraid to throw down. Not that everything the dusty blond lifts her voice to lands that aggressive. For the irrepressible Silvas who can tempest and coo, it's about hitting the emotional bull's eye that lends an immediacy to the songs on E.G..O, the utterly independent project that follows her critically acclaimed Letters To Ghosts. Briston Maroney: Briston Maroney says a lot with a little. With only a homemade project and a few singles to his name, Briston has identified himself as a voice for his class of outsiders. His nomadic past is stitched together in songs; in one moment, his guitar tone is drenched in the Florida humidity, and on the next, his harmonies echo through the Laurel Canyon. His passion is always heart-on-sleeve but never off the rails, and on songs like “Freakin’ Out On the Interstate”, he knows how to let the music drive the conversation. With his new Carnival EP and tour to follow, Nashville is lucky to have him until his next home calls.
