Join us for first of a weekly series starting up at the Keg and I hosted by Samara Jade, the first of which will feature Aimée Ringle. These two soulful songstresses will trade songs back and forth from 7-9, come enjoy a brew and the music for no cover!
Samara Jade a musical seamstress, stitching together diverse musical influences into a unique tapestry of intricate yet catchy sounds. Hailing both from the mountains of western North Carolina and New York’s Hudson Valley, Samara has been in the Pacific Northwest for the past few months, touring by playing house concerts and busking on the streets. Samara's songwriting, her groove-based guitar work and the emotive power of her singing voice all draw upon influences such as orchestral folk, jazz, soul, blues, and Appalachian styles. Her soul-centric approach to songwriting both avails in freshly surprising and emotionally relevant songs that approach subjects including but not limited to fermentation, bird songs and the beautiful insanity of humanness. As heart-opening as it is mind-stimulating, Samara’s music might be best be squeezed into a nutshell of a fan-coined term: ‘Philosopholk’.
This June Samara released her third full-length and Kickstarter-funded album, "Wave of Birdsong," a lushly arranged folk epic about listening to nature and being human.
