JOHN STATZ & JOSH HARTY- give a listen- should be a  grand evening with 2 once Madison-based songwriters bringing it all back home.  Camela Widad opens.

Rootsy folk-rocker John Statz’ yet-to-be-released newest record is produced by JEFFREY FOUCAULT.  “The singer-songwriter’s unquenchable wanderlust has taken him from Colorado toWisconsin to West Virginia to Hungary, and during his travels, he wrote Ghost Towns, a full-length dripping with folk-rock immediacy and the kind of grit that cooled heels never gather.” – Jason Heller, Westword – Denver, CO

“Harty has a warm, intimate performance style. You can ease into his songs from the first note and his voice has that perfect combination of resignation and hope. The songs are all downbeat, even mournful, and Harty’s performances are utterly convincing, whether on the doom-laden “Whiskey & Morphine”, the more upbeat tune (but downbeat lyrics) of “Sweet Solution”. . .  AmericanaUK
