Radio Stranger - True Stories; Naked Songs
This will be a very special night as Kelly Brightwell and Woody Moran, performing as Radio Stranger, take us behind the scenes of their Eclectic Acoustic co-writes and share stories from their writing sessions as well as perform stripped down (naked) versions of their songs. Always entertaining, Radio Stranger is an Artichoke favorite, having performed in concert with full band as well as several benefit shows for Artichoke over the years. They will be joined onstage by several guest artists. This is Radio Strangers only scheduled show at Café Artichoke for 2019, and one you dont want to miss.
If you are not familiar with Radio Stranger, their sound is reminiscent of Birds of Chicago, The Swell Season, and the UK band The Shires. Their 2nd EP, entitled CROSSTALK, was reviewed with high marks from Music Connection Magazine (Nov 2017) and they are included in Dec 2017 Music Connection's Best Unsigned Bands of 2017. They recently were awarded an Official Showcase at the Far-West Conference, also appearing as songwriter panelists alongside Beth Wood and Jim Bruno (Shawn Colvin) at the conference. Radio Stranger have been featured on the nationally syndicated radio shows Out Of The Woods and Women of Substance. Radio Stranger opened for David Wilcox's only Portland appearance in 2017. "Really good songs, great harmonies... you got pocket!" David Wilcox.
Jeanette Lundgren, VP of Far-West and host of Two Blue Roses House Concerts in Eugene, OR, says "Radio Stranger are the real deal. This is fully revealed when they hit a live stage, captivating the audience right from the very first song. Tight harmonies; meaningful memorable melodies, lyrics and songs; audience rapor; and an impressive stage presence.
