Mason Jennings - Friday, July 15, 8pm  

Singer/songwriter Mason Jennings blends the personal insights of a poet, the political broadsides of a protest singer, and the broad musical eclecticism of a jazz musician with a rock & roller's passion. The result made him one of the most talked-about new artists on the acoustic music scene and earned him a loyal cult following: He moved over 30,000 copies of his first two albums (1998's Mason Jennings and 2000's Birds Flying Away) and sold out shows around the country without the benefit of a major-label publicity department. Making music that sounded thoughtful and emotionally committed despite the low-key instrumentation, Jennings reached a creative high point with 2004's Use Your Voice, and with 2006's Boneclouds, the stubbornly independent artist briefly allied himself with a major-label imprint, albeit one operated by a fellow artist (Isaac Brock of Modest Mouse). After a pair of albums for Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records (including 2009's Blood of Man, where he embraced a harder, more electric sound), Jennings once again took control of his recording career, launching his own label with 2010's Live at First Ave. He moved back and forth between indie folk (2013's Always Been) and a more aggressive, rock-influenced approach (2016's Wild Dark Metal) before returning from a brief sabbatical with 2017's deeply personal Songs from When We Met.
