Saturday, June 11th - 8:00pm
This is a Seated Show.
Wax Moon are an acoustic vocal duo: Paul Kimball and John Blatchford. Based in the SF Bay Area, Wax Moon's simple, clear sound is built around vocal harmonies and acoustic guitar, reaching back to the folk troubadour past but with all four feet planted firmly in the indie-folk-Americana present.
Wax Moon's music is intimate and stripped down to the essential; on their debut release “Ready or Not”, these elements delineate themes of love, loss, and perseverance. There's an optimism and humanism inherent in Wax Moon, even when the lyrical subject matter veers towards the melancholy. If they take you to difficult places, you can be confident that Wax Moon will also walk you safely back from the edge.
Paul cut his songwriting teeth as the leader of the cosmic country rock band Careless Hearts. John's multi-faceted musical expertise was featured most recently in the eclectic indie folk band The Mumlers and indie rock band Doctor Nurse. The two have forged a unique connection with Wax Moon, and with “Ready or Not” the two have landed solidly on a set of original songs that speak directly from and to the heart.
One Day in May is the first full length album from Nate Baker, a writer and musician from Indianapolis, Indiana. Recorded at San Francisco's Tiny Telephone on two marathon weekends separated by a year, it is an evocative scrapbook of endings, beginnings, fortunes, failures, courage and humility.
Drawing equally from Harlan Howard's "three chords and the truth" songwriting school and the high, lonesome lyric tradition, he has shared the stage with Ron Sexsmith, AA Bondy, Shearwater, Jesca Hoop, Marisa Anderson among many others.
In January 2016 "Cold Pink Wine," featuring vocals by Jessi Phillips (Eight Belles), was featured in Touchtunes jukeboxes nationwide as part of their Breakout Band contest. Baker will be touring throughout 2016 and plans to release a 10" vinyl EP in July.
