Jamestown Revival - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Jamestown Revival
At the heart of Jamestown Revival is a friendship that spans over a decade.

Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance grew up together in the small Texas town of Magnolia. From a young age, they shared a love for music as well as the outdoors. About an hour north of Magnolia TX, there was some old family land with a dilapidated ranch house where they spent the better part of their adolescence.

At one point or another, music from Creedence Clearwater and The Everly Brothers, to fellow Texans Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, and Stevie Ray Vaughan found it’s way through an old pair of speakers that sat on the back porch. The pair spent the day exploring that thousand-acre plot of land, and when the sun when down they took to the records of the songwriters and bands that inspired them. At the age of 22, they moved to Austin and began to craft a sound of their own. Deeply rooted in harmony, they merged the sounds of the South with classic American, and Western rock.

Looking for adventure, as well as a change of pace, they eventually made the decision to head west and make the move to Los Angeles, CA.

Throughout the course of the next 12 months, they wrote what will be Jamestown Revival’s first full-length album. It’s heavily autobiographical, telling the stories of their adventures, their discomforts, and their observations. In order to capture the spirit of the music, the two found a log cabin high within the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. The pair, along with their band and engineer, set out to convert it in to a temporary recording studio. With wild moose right outside the window, and aspen leaves spinning in the wind, they tracked 14 songs. Performed live, with no headphones, and entirely to tape, the process captured the moments in the room.

Now back L.A., the duo are planning to release their music and gear up for life back out on the road. These days, they’re exploring far more than just a thousand acres…
The Wind + The Wave - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
The Wind + The Wave
WHO: Austin, Texas-based duo The Wind and The Wave are Dwight Baker and Patricia Lynn. (Dwight is “The Wind” and Patty is “The Wave.”) The two met in 2009 when Dwight, a touring musician turned songwriter and producer, who’s worked with such artists as Bob Schneider and Brandi Carlile, was urged by his wife to actually leave his studio (“I’m kind of a hermit,” he says) and go see a friend’s band. Patty’s previous band was opening the show.

“I hate complimenting her,” Dwight jokes, “but Patty was pretty captivating to watch.”

“I thought he was intimidating,” Patty says with a laugh about her first impression of Dwight. “A few weeks later we went out with a group of people for sushi and I remember not saying much.”

“She was mousy and shy and quiet.”

“Not anymore. Now I burp in meetings.”

“Yeah, now you can’t shut up,” Dwight says. “I created a monster.”

“Dwight is like my other half,” Patty says. “He eats what I don’t in the trail mix and vice versa. Cashews are the best.”

“Cashews are disgusting.” Dwight says. “Yeah, it’s really adorable to watch us every morning eating oatmeal together on the road. We’re like 90-year-old women gossiping about shit, and her going, ‘Can I have your nuts?’”

Declaring Patty’s voice the best thing about her band, Dwight expressed an interest in working with her, which led to his producing several of her projects. A creative partnership was born. The two describe themselves as being “cut from the same thread” and “rarely on different pages.”

WHAT: Later this year, The Wind and The Wave will release their debut album From The Wreckage, a title that Dwight says partially reflects “building a new thing from the ashes of our careers.” The album glows with a rootsy golden tone that encompasses everything from indie-folk, to alt-country to blues-rock to Southern psychedelia. The raucous first single “With Your Two Hands” sounds like it could have been written during an impromptu back-porch jam session.
Kris Orlowski - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Kris Orlowski
For Seattle-based band Kris Orlowski, making music is about more than fulfilling personal agendas; it’s about creating something that touches the soul. Through relatable storytelling, husky harmonies and knack for hitting emotional highs, the band has touched the souls of people across the Pacific Northwest since 2010. In the wake of releasing three well-received EPs, touring the country and having songs featured on primetime television series, the act will release its first full-length album, Believer. Produced by Martin Feveyear, of Jupiter Studios in Seattle, the songs that make-up Believer were woven together along the West Coast: from the salty shores of Seaside, Ore., and Orcas Island’s Doe Bay, to the corners of Orlowski’s Seattle apartment – as well as the practice spaces in between. And the collection, rich with personal experiences and thoughtful reflection, may prove the band’s most honest and empowering work yet. Shedding the lush sounds of a 17 piece orchestra for more traditional rock and pop arrangements, the cinematic record is more punch-y and experimental than their earlier folk-infused traditions. “I think the album will inspire some hope, but I also think it will go beyond that and give people a reason to act,” Orlowski says. In other words, it might encourage finding something to believe in.
