The Chimps -- CD release (Nick Gusman opening)
Formed by three longtime St. Louis songwriters, the Chimps are Jesse Irwin (guitar), John Krane (guitar), and Dave Werner (bass). The trio uses sparse arrangements and rich three-part harmonies during their performances, trading vocal duties while sharing great original songs and the occasional bad joke.
At the Focal Point, the Chimps will officially release their record Play No Evil. The Riverfront times writes of the album, while the individual personalities of the Chimps members are on full display throughout Play No Evil, the end product still manages to come together as a thoroughly cohesive effort that shows off some of the best of what the citys singer-songwriter scene has to offer.
Hello to the hard times, goodbye good times Ill see you round is a line from the title track of Nick Gusmans debut Americana record, Dear Hard Times. Though desperation is heard on top of the songs blunt an honest lyrics, underneath there is a wave of confidence. Taking note of inspirational artists like Dylan and Prine, Nicks songs are chock-full of imagery and storytelling. Dear Hard Times will be released late in 2018. Nick is a St. Louis native, playing mostly in South St. Louis. A July 2018 tour brings Nick to the Northwest, taking him to Seattle and back.
