KICK - The INXS Experience

KICK_EVENTBRITE.png

KICK - The INXS Experience is the USA's most captivating salute and tribute to the internationally acclaimed rock band, INXS.

Friday, December 21st
8pm | All Ages
$18 ADV
$22 DOS

Formed in 2014, two years after INXS stopped touring, KICK - The INXS Experience has beautifully managed to capture the spirit of INXS in both its sound and live performance, bringing the highest level of musicianship to the audience while showing a true passion for the music of INXS. Vocalist, guitarist, and singer-songwriter Cory Massi is the founding frontman of KICK, and has long held a respect and admiration for the late great Michael Hutchence. Massi even auditioned for the reality TV show, Rockstar: INXS, in 2004, where contestants competed to become the new lead vocalist for INXS. What convinced him to audition? "I loved Michael's singing and his personality," notes Massi. "I saw INXS when I was a teenager in '88 and '89; they were great, and the people were just gaga over them. Michael left a big impression with his star power; he really had it, that guy. Our range is similar and I just went for it. I had to sing "Mystify" acappella so I was kind of nervous because I didn't have a band behind me. There was a camera a foot away from my face and it was out of my comfort zone; I would probably still feel uncomfortable today. I didn't get the gig: I was one of the last people to try out and I think by the time I auditioned they had already made their selection. No excuse: it was a good experience. We include "Mystify" in our set and when I sing it, I have my band with me and we love the music, so we play it with a lot of heart."

KICK is already garnering the attention, admiration, and accolades of well-seasoned "ears" in the music industry. Radio personalities in several markets have been quick to offer praise; WZXL / Atlantic City program director Steve Raymond, a longtime fan of INXS, raved after listening to only part of one song, "Wow! These guys have got the vibe down. Really impressive!" 107.1 The BOSS (WWZY)'s midday air personality Michele Amabile concurred, "I had to go back and listen again with my eyes closed.... I could have sworn I was hearing Michael Hutchence!"

Sounding like legendary frontman Michael Hutchence is no easy task. "I guess the hardest thing, the most challenging thing when I started KICK," acknowledges Massi, "was capturing the great variety in Hutchence's voice. He can sound sensitive and soft and he can be super strong and really belt it out and sometimes that all happens within one phrase or even a word. It took a lot of self-control to capture how he projects his lyrics and the music. It's impossible to really sound and look like him; he's an Adonis, another Jim Morrison, Morrison in a pop sense. I can't mimic that; all I can do is do my best to capture his spirit."

The focus has been on faithfully recreating the music in its most powerful sense; an in-the-pocket bottom end from bass player Don Leslie and drummer Johnny Dee, a brilliant combination of piano and synth by Mark Goodnough, the signature guitar tones produced by guitarist Todd Kingand Jason Taylor, the saxophone by Nottingham, England's Tom Wheat, and the spot-on lead vocals by Cory Massi, all lend to a powerful high-energy show. KICK - The INXS Experience will take you back. It will reignite your passion for INXS. It will introduce you to music that is still as fresh today as the day it was written; from "Original Sin" to "Elegantly Wasted" and everything in between, including (but not limited to) "Need You Tonight," "New Sensation," "What You Need," "Don't Change," "Listen Like Thieves," "The One Thing," "Bitter Tears," "Suicide Blonde," "Not Enough Time," "Beautiful Girl," and "Devil Inside."

The band hears it, time and time again:

"This was like seeing INXS all over again, I'm their biggest fan."

"That was such an awesome surprise; I'd almost forgotten how much I love INXS!"

"I came thinking I would only know a couple of songs, but I knew every single one - and the words, too."

"Cory Massi is Michael Hutchence 2.0, fabulous!"

Fresh off her performance at Bijou Theatre, Award-winning musician Jenn Grinels is bringing her dynamic songwriting and powerhouse vocals to Open Chord.

Jenn is making her return to the Red Clay Theater after a year-long hiatus spent writing material for her recently completed new studio album on the heels of an incredibly successful Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign. 

The Nashville based singer/songwriter has spent the last ten years playing nearly 1500 concerts all over the world headlining shows from Denver to Dublin and everywhere in between, as well as supporting artists like Marc Broussard, Edwin McCain and the 10,000 Maniacs, even prompting San Francisco Examiner reviewer Kenneth Fish to write, “Grinels steals the show. She is a rock and roll temptress conjuring musical spells that no one could resist. Whether quietly purring into the microphone or seriously belting out a tune, the audience was hanging on every note and lapping up every well-crafted phrase. (She) has the rare gift of being a well-rounded performer who engages the audience fully and openly, sharing the performer as much as the performance. And her performance was nothing short of amazing.”

"Grinels began to play and sing and the whole room stopped breathing. She has a dazzling voice, Chrissie Hynde's mojo, Rickie Lee Jones' feel for the jazz in the spaces between notes and an unfailing sense of the dynamics called for in each moment...words fell from her mouth like gems."

Vetiver is what I've been calling my songs and recordings since about 2003 or so. I live in San Francisco, have since 1998. My touring band and the musicians I've recorded with over the years are always changing, though many friends and players have stayed with me over albums and tours. The one constant has been Thom Monahan who has engineered and co-produced every Vetiver album. Thom lives in L.A., where most of Complete Strangers was recorded.

Praised by NPR, Stereogum, WNYC, and The Huffington Post, Tyler Ramsey is a multi-instrumentalist equally at home playing guitar, piano, keyboards, bass, and percussion, but is best known as a talented fingerstyle guitarist and singer-songwriter.

In addition to having released three acclaimed solo albums, Ramsey is perhaps most immediately recognizable, until his recent departure, as the guitarist and a co-writer in Band Of Horses, having played with them since 2007, prior to the release of their breakthrough album, "Cease To Begin." A well-established and acclaimed guitar player and singer in the burgeoning western North Carolina music scene, where he calls home, he first learned to play music on piano before moving to the guitar. Ramsey grew up listening to and studying country-blues guitar players like Mance Lipscomb and Mississippi John Hurt, and American finger pickers like John Fahey and Leo Kottke, absorbing their sound and making it all his own.

Born and Raised Productions presents Caleb Hawley

Don't miss out on the best Halloween themed show of the year. We've got a completely stacked bill that you cannot afford to miss. Caleb Hawley sold out Pretentious Beer Co. last year and with Stephen Day and Chelsea Shag joining the bill, these tickets are sure to go fast. We will see everyone at The Open Chord on Saturday, October 27th. Costumes are not required but highly encouraged! 

Tickets go on sale, Friday, August 31st at 10am.
$12 in advance
$15 Day of Show

Advanced Tickets are only available online via eventbrite. There will be no tickets available at The Open Chord Box Office until the day of the show.


CALEB HAWLEY

New York-based, Minneapolis-born singer, songwriter, and producer, Caleb Hawley independently released Love, Drugs, & Decisions in 2017 followed by Sex Tape in 2018. Raw lyrics and somber themes are sweetened by pop beats, androgynous vocals, and sensuality inspired by the Minneapolis sound of the 80s and dance rock. Hawley writes about prescription drug culture, relating it to his battle with Tourette syndrome, depression, substance abuse and relationship struggles. His lyrics are introspective and observational, peering at the glamorous facades in society.

Hawley’s music is elevated by stellar live performances, backed by a slew of reviews noting his onstage charisma. He forms authentic connections with an air of openness, soulful singalongs and untethered guitar work. His universal reach is evident within keen pop writing that is equal parts conflict and triumph.


STEPHEN DAY

When Stephen Day performs he exudes an ethos that captivates the audience to another level. The twenty-two year old Georgia native is clearly the middle ground product of his contemporary influences. His crooning vocals matched with his eccentric stage presence bring you to a place where you’ll find the perfect combination of John Mayer and Allen Stone come to life. Noisetrade has even proclaimed, “Stephen Day is an artist that comes along once every decade.” The soulful singer-songwriter is best described as the New Retro.

Day’s musical journey started back in 2014 when he moved to Nashville, TN to attend Belmont University. He took his first two years of college to create and record his debut EP Undergrad Romance and The Moses in Me. Each of the six meticulously crafted works were written by Day in entirety. When the EP was officially released in April of 2016 it quickly gained popularity and “If You Were the Rain” found its place on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart. The song peaked at number two and has since racked up more than 1.4 MILLION streams on Spotify.

Day’s new single, “Dancing in the Street” takes him to the next level. The song was co-written and Produced by Nashville-based Producer, Quinn Redmond. The pulsing rhythms and striking guitar riffs paired with Day’s undeniable power vocal have formed what is destined to be the song of your summer.


CHELESA SHAG

Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada, Chelsea moved to Atlanta in 1996 where she developed the soul of the Southeast that can be heard in her music. After studying jazz guitar at the Atlanta Institute of Music, Chelsea began winning hearts performing throughout Atlanta and breaking through the feminine clichés. She is reinventing the image of females in music through her display of strong and unique songwriting with complex but catchy guitar style that she has been developing since the age of 11. Her live set is evocative of the spirit of the late 60’s. A funky groove, a reckless abandon, blistering solos, flower power, sunshine and rebellion. Her background vocal section flawlessly accentuates her command of the blues guitar, timbres fuse to create arrangements that are naturalistic and free spirited but simultaneously precise and intentional. The listener feels refreshed, invigorated and liberated, like a blue jay bathing in a fountain, singing sweet and sublime in a summer evening.

Tyler Hilton was singing and playing in coffee houses as a 15 year old, when a chance encounter with Los Angeles radio personalities Mark and Brian from KLOS led to multiple appearances on their radio show, live concert dates with the duo, and national exposure. He released his first album independently shortly thereafter, which led to major label interest and eventually signing to Maverick/ Warner Records where he released "The Tracks of Tyler Hilton" which garnered two singles on the Billboard Top 40 charts. While on tour promoting the album, Tyler was cast as his child hood hero Elvis Presley in "Walk the Line" where he worked with T-Bone Burnett on the soundtrack, and for which he received a gold record.

An opportunity to sing on TV's "One Tree Hill,” a notorious breeding ground for new musical talent, led to a series long run, several appearances on MTV's "TRL" with the cast, and a national tour with Gavin DeGraw and Michelle
Branch who also sang on the show. Taylor Swift admitted to being a fan, and asked Tyler to star in her music video "Tear Drops on My Guitar" which became a huge crossover hit. The two appeared together live several times and later Tyler appeared via interactive video on her stadium tour. The independent comedy "Charlie Bartlett" followed with Robert Downey Jr. and Anton Yelchin and where Tyler met his wife, Megan Park, who was also in the film.

Tyler moved to Nashville where he began exploring his family's country roots and made several records with notable producers including Dan Huff, Nathan Chapman, Matt Serletic, and John Alagia. Sadly, non of these records saw the light of day, as staff and roster upheaval plagued Warner Brother Records, and eventually led to Tyler's departure from the label. One of these unreleased songs made their way to Joe Cocker, who recorded it on his final album. Tyler then started his own label, Hooptie Tune Records, and released "Forget the Storm" the following year. It became the first record of Tyler's to gain international success and led to several European tours and a new fervent fan base. His follow up, the mellow folky country album “Indian Summer,” was recorded live in studio with a bluegrass band including his uncle, Tommy Hilton, on guitar.

While recording, Tyler landed a role in Halle Berry's "Extant" on CBS and continued to film the show over the course of its two season run, touring and filming the holiday movie “Christmas on the Bayou” with Randy Travis, Ed Asner, and “One Tree Hill” alum, Hilarie Burton, for which he also recorded the single

“One Foot in the Bayou”. Following the end of “Extant,” Tyler worked on a pilot for the ABC sitcom, "The Fluffy Shop" alongside Gabriel Iglesias. Tyler is currently based in Los Angeles, where he’s working on a new album, due out in late 2018.

Malcolm Holcombe

All Ages | 8pm

$16 Day of Show

Malcolm Holcombe is possessed by a singular sort of solitary genius that, like the novelist William Faulkner, is yet the voice of an entire region – the South--and even of a generation, though somehow transcendent of it, timeless. If true greatness moves from the particular to the universal, his music speaks for all of humanity while remaining entirely his own.

Melodime w/ The Brevet

Melodime
The Brevet

Tuesday, October 9th
All Ages | 8pm | $12

Melodime is a Virginia-based band with influences in both country and rock that features emotionally charged anthems, piano driven hooks, and energetic guitar solos for a dynamic, organic sound.

One listen and it’s immediately clear that The Brevet have undergone a dramaticevolution on their explosive, ambitious new album, LEGS. Synthesizing the raucous energy of their live show with sonic precision of their extensive studio history, thecollection is the California five-piece’s most deeply personal and lyrically sophisticated yet, tackling perception and identity in the digital age with both subtle nuance and blunt force. The songs remain as cinematic as ever, full of rousing choruses and sing-along hooks, but they carry more weight here, propelled inexorably forward by thunderous percussion and blazing electric guitars that blend rock and roll snarl with R&B swagger.

The Bristol Invasion w/ Folk Soul Revival & 49 Winchester

Bristol Invasion EVENTBRITE.png

The Bands of Bristol are taking over Open Chord!!
Folk Soul Revival
49 Winchester

Friday, October 5tth
8pm | All Ages
$10 ADV
$12 DOS

A modern band rooted in old-school southern sounds, Folk Soul Revivalwhips up its own version of amplified Americana on the band's self-titled fourth record.The name says it all. Folk Soul Revival, like the band that created it, is an album that celebrates the sounds, stories, and small-town values of an earlier era, modernizing their approach with sharp songwriting and electrifying instrumental work. There's country twang, bluegrass bounce, hillbilly hell-raising, chicken-pickin' guitar, and roadhouse roots-rock, all sandwiched into a track list that mixes heartbreak, honesty, and humor in equal doses. Recorded in Nashville and road-tested on stages across the country, this is Folk Soul Revival's finest work — an album that nods to the glory days of the past while still pushing the band forward.

Hailing from the small mountain town of Castlewood, Virginia, 49 Winchester's unique sound is true to the region's strong culture of grassroots music. The powerful voice and poetic lyrics of singer & guitarist Isaac Gibson shine through the band's melodic songs.

The young band began playing shows in the months following graduating from high-school and has since released two full length albums and have played stages across the East including Mountain Music Festival and Bristol Rhythm & Roots.

Lera Lynn announces a tour of intimate performances with stripped-down old and new songs
with multi-instrumentalist Todd Lombardo. 

w/ Rueben Bidez

Thursday, October 4th
All Ages | 8pm
$20 Advanced
$25 Day of Show
 

Throughout her career — a nearly decade-long run filled with three album releases, a career-shifting appearance and soundtrack for HBO’s True Detective, hundreds of shows on both sides of the Atlantic, and a sound encompassing everything from Americana to stark indie rock — Lera Lynn has balanced her fierce independence with a string of collaborations.

She's written songs with T Bone Burnett and Rosanne Cash. She's recorded albums with full bands (2014's The Avenues, hailed by outlets like Rolling Stone and American Songwriter) and smaller lineups (the experimental, NPR and New York Times-approved Resistor, which Lynn co-produced at her Nashville home). On her fourth album, Plays Well With Others, she teams up with eight different duet partners and seven co-writers, resulting in her most diverse, collaborative work to date.
