John Statz with Todd Kessler and the New Folk
July 17, 2014 - 6:00 p.m. - 9 p.m.
John Statz (Denver, CO via Madison, WI)- When singer/songwriter John Statz isn't at home in Denver, Colorado, he's out traveling the world, playing shows and writing and recording in places like Budapest, Slovenia, Quebec, and Anchorage. For his new album, Old Fashioned, he is bringing it back home. Whereas the previous album (Ghost Towns) was filled with worldly influences and subject matter, Old Fashioned brings us back to the heartland: Midwestern America.
Todd Kessler and the New Folk (Chicago, IL) - Todd Kessler, Season 3 contestant and member of Team Ceelo on NBC's hit show, The Voice, started working his way through the Chicago music scene in 2005 getting his hands on every open mic he could. He was soon headlining shows at Chicago's best venues (Lincoln Hall, Millennium Park, SPACE, and Double Door), gaining fans and praise with his powerful voice and poignant storytelling.
In 2012 Kessler and his band The New Folk entered the studio to record his fifth release and emerged eighteen months later with Sea Fever, an album that has garnered them critical acclaim in publications and blogs across the country. Debuting their "Alternative/Folk/Pop" sound in August 2012, Todd Kessler and The New Folk celebrated the release of Sea Fever with a summer residency at the famed Schubas Tavern in Chicago (named as one of the top 10 music venues in the country by CNN.com) and earlier this year began touring in support of the album with a run of shows in Austin, Texas during SXSW.
