GRANT PEEPLES BIO: 

A self-described  “tree-hugger that watches NASCAR, and Buddhist with a gun below the seat,”  Grant Peeples is known for his axe-sharp socio-political tunes, raucous humor and heart-gigging ballads.
In 2014 he was the recipient of the Focus Foundation Award for Creative Excellence, which cited the “humor, compassion and wisdom of his songs,” as well as their "unflinching social insight and cultural acuity.” He is a regular performer at The Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, Okemah OK. The 30A Songwriters Festival, and The Florida, Will McLean, & Gamble Rogers Folk Festivals. 
Grant spent over a decade living on a small island off the Miskito Coast of Nicaragua. During his US absence (1995-2006), while our country was surging ahead into lifestyle changes bordering on futuristic, Grant was installing the island’s first flushing toilet, digging his own well, and rescuing sea turtles on Little Corn Island. He returned in 2006 to a homeland going through economic, social, and political upheaval. Much of his writing is in response to what he found on his return.  

Grant has made eight studio records. They include a trilogy produced by Gurf Morlix, and his latest, also produced by Morlix, Settling Scores Vol. II., released earlier this year.

Sunshine State

Chris Lee Becker is a singer/songwriter living right here in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Chris Lee Becker is a true folk singer with a perspective on the world that looks beyond the surface and sees and hears what many miss, and that is the disenfranchised, the misfits, the ones who don't aspire to "Make America Great Again", because they are too busy just trying to put one foot in front of another.  His characters, though, do get up and with grace and courage rise and face the day, and often we, the listener, are left better for having known them.  Scott Aycock, Folk Salad Radio and House Concerts Unlimited

Kim Richey - Angels' Share (acoustic)

Kim's bio:

“[Kim Richey] would rule the charts in a land where Marshall Crenshaw was king, Aimee Mann queen, and the The Beatles never put out another record after Revolver.” Steve Horowitz, popmatters.com

“Richey entices you with sad and unembellished music that reveals an original spirit - and then she ensnares you for keeps by making you consider all the noiseless sensations that no songs can ever contain.” Timothy White, Billboard Magazine

Those artists who find themselves stuck in the deepest of ruts two decades into their careers could learn a thing or two from veteran singer-songwriter Kim Richey. She’s never been afraid to go where the inspiration is.

Two-time Grammy-nominated Kim is a storyteller; a weaver of emotions and a tugger of heartstrings. Tender, poetic and aching with life’s truths, Kim’s songs transport you to her world, where words paint pictures and melodies touch the soul. And then there’s her voice. Pure, arresting and honest, it makes you take notice; Kim has the kind of voice where if emotions were ribbons, they’d be streaming in rainbow colours from your iPod.

Early on, the Zanesville, Ohio native thrived on the progressive side of mainstream country, her albums (1995’s Kim Richey, 1997’s Bittersweet and 1999’s Glimmer, all on Mercury) showcasing twang-pop sensibilities, a rich, rounded vocal tone and effortlessly sophisticated songwriting that other discerning performers - Radney Foster, Trisha Yearwood and Pam Tillis to name a few - coveted for their own recordings.

In the years since, Kim has made her subtly psychedelic album Rise (Lost Highway) in Los Angeles with producer Bill Bottrell, flown to London to enlist the help of Giles Martin and emerging with the crisply orchestrated Chinese Boxes (Vanguard) and turned to her East Nashville-based bandleader and frequent co-writer Neilson Hubbard to conjure the earthy indie-pop feel of Wreck Your Wheels (Lojinx/Thirty Tigers) and to complete her latest masterpiece of smart, sensual understatement Thorn In My Heart (Lojinx/Yep Roc).

The array of top-tier guests on the album include Jason Isbell, Wilco’s Pat Sansone, My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel, Will Kimbrough and Yearwood, who was, for the first time, returning the harmony-singing favor. And the dozen songs themselves show that Richey’s still dreaming up fetching melodies that arc and bend in unexpected ways, and still discovering fresh angles from which to articulate matters of the heart.

Note from the Host:
Thanks to all who came out to support live music at our last show, and brought food to share.  You guys are the best.  I am really pumped to share with you this next artist, John Dee Graham and The Fighting Cocks.  The band will feature Geo Duron (John Wesley Harding, Alejandro, etc.) and Andrew Duplantis (Son Volt, Meat Puppets, etc.).  

"Jon Dee Graham is a guitarist and songwriter from Austin, Texas. A former member of the True Believers with Alejandro Escovedo, Graham is the only musician ever to be inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame three times.

Jon Dee Graham is most well known for his solo work, including the critically acclaimed records "Escape from Monster Island", "Hooray For The Moon", and "Full". He is also well known for his tenure in The Skunks, Austin's very first punk band, and roots-rock pioneers The True Believers with Alejandro Escovedo. Jon Dee has also played guitar with acts such as John Doe (X, The Knitters), Exene Cervenka (X), Michelle Shocked, Alejandro Escovedo, Kelly Willis, and The Gourds and has had his songs covered by many artists, including Patty Smythe, Patty Griffin and James McMurtry."

Laredo - Jon Dee Graham and the Fighting Cocks

I first laid eyes on Jon Dee Graham on April 16, 1984. He was 25. I was 23.

We were at the Ritz, a giant rock club in Manhattan’s East Village. Jon Dee was playing in a band from Austin, Tex., called the True Believers, who were opening for Los Lobos. I am impatient with opening acts, and I was prepared as always to dislike whatever this thing called the True Believers would turn out to be.

Then they came out on stage and blew my hair back. The Troobs, as their fans called them, were a roaring, three-guitar army like nothing I’d heard since Skynyrd’s plane went down. But these guys had done time in punk-rock bands. They united the Athens weirdness I had loved in college with the three-guitar stomp that stayed in my eight-track player all through high school.

What I remember liking about Jon Dee Graham was that even though he could clearly play like hell, he never showed off. His solos always served the song.  Story by Chuck Reece  If you want to read the whole story, go to:  The Bitter Southerner

'Little Mustang' - David Olney and Daniel Seymour from The Extended Play Sessions

Who is David Olney?


Master craftsman, acclaimed singer/songwriter and globe-trotting performer David Olney has released more than 20 albums over four decades, including six live recordings. His music has been prominently featured in ABC-TV’s Nashville and his stellar songs have been recorded by Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Del McCoury, Tim O’Brien and Steve Young, 


 "Though he's best known as a masterful wordsmith, Olney has a knack for creating the ideal atmosphere for his gothic noir tune.” - Acoustic Guitar Magazine

David Olney "Brains"

WINK BURCHAM:
Singer/songwriter, Wink Burcham, has been playing the Tulsa music scene for a number of years, and is an integral part of a new wave of Tulsa talent. He has developed a very loyal following in the region and is beginning to step out on a national scale. Performing a style that easily slips between old-fashioned country, grass-roots folk, and Motown inspired blues, it's easy to understand his appeal. His soulful melodies support witty and heartfelt lyrics in the tradition of John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, and John Lee Hooker.

Auld Lang Syne: Yearning

Auld Lang Syne

Bio//


Hailing from Rochester, NY, Auld Lang Syne has built a reputation for crafting lyrically incisive songs, firmly rooted in the earth, yet backed by arrangements which are utterly transcendent. Timothy and Kathy Dick sing their hymns to impermanence and heartfelt pleas for authenticity while soaring instrumentation and intricate vocal harmonies weave and dart like a confluence of sparrows

Green Corn Rebellion NPR


About Green Corn Lite:

This 11 piece band will be pared down to a sextet for this show, thus the name Green Corn Lite.

This Oklahoma-grown band, know forthwith as Green Corn Rebellion, arose from the murk of the sleeping Tulsa Sound, or the mire of the not-so-tired New Tulsa Sound, or perhaps the underpinnings of the dirge-punk scene somewhere in Terlton.

Masked as mere dextrous performers, the band consists of highly trained thinking machines from a variety of backgrounds, tirelessly creating dramatic musical enactments of Americana from the underbelly of the mid-south, i.e. the line of highways that spans Stillwater to Houma, cypress to red dirt, a "prarie-dog rock" voodoo.

Upcoming House Concerts: 
Heather Maloney with Casii Stephan, April 29th
Auld Lang Syne with Green Corn Lite May 3rd
