    David Grant and The Reveals w/ Truth About Daisies and Charlie Schmidt


    The Reveals are aptly named; their songs move the listener from the mundane to the revelatory in the space of a verse with unrepentant honesty. Inspired by great songwriters like Ryan Adams, Glenn Hansard, and Jeff Tweedy (to name a few), their music is rooted in timeless structure and form, a voice (or two) riding a wave of indie grooves, guitars, keys, bari sax, drums and bass.

    OLS & State Theatre Presents: Hiss Golden Messenger


    The writing of the songs that became Heart Like a Levee started in a hotel room in Washington, DC , in January of 2015 during a powerful storm that dark- ened the East Coast. At that time I was feeling—more acutely than I had ever felt before—wrenched apart by my responsibilities to my family and to my music. Forgetting, momentarily, that for me, each exists only with the other. How could I forget?

    OLS & State Theatre Present: Henry Jamison + Gracie and Rachel w/ Tall Horse


    If you take a look through his family tree, one thing becomes abundantly clear: Henry Jamison was born to write songs. Of course there's his father, the classical composer, and his mother, the English professor, who both inspired and encouraged him directly, but if you continue tracing Jamison's lineage back even further, some interesting names start to turn up. Go back to the 1800's, for example, and you'll find "Battle Cry of Freedom" author George Frederick Root, the most popular songwriter of the Civil War era. Travel even further back in time, to 14th century England to be exact, and you'll find the poet John Gower, known to be a friend to both Chuacer and Richard II.

    Son Little w/ Doe Paoro


    What is the new magic of music? If you trace the path of a plan back to its beginnings, what do you find? Is it a tree, growing from seed with deep roots planted in fertile soil, branches arcing out in all directions? Or a spark in the dark, an electrical charge? Is it a waterway, with swirling currents raging to create a river? Or is it a snowflake, falling from on high and dropping down to earth with a singular splash? For Son Little, the genesis of a musical idea — the magic — remains largely a mystery. But his kinetic ability to summon that energy all the same, to command it, hold onto it, and set it in motion, is the stuff of alchemy.

    Front Country


    An acoustic band born in the land of tech innovation, Front Country was never going to be accepted as an authentic American roots band out of the gate. Cutting their teeth in progressive bluegrass jams in San Francisco’s Mission District and rehearsing in the East Bay, they learned to play roots music their own way, with the tools they had on hand.
