WILKINSON JAMES, spearheaded by singer-songwriters Liz Wilkinson and AJ Scheiber, blends honky-tonk vocal stylings and edgy but classic-sounding original songs to create music that a listener once described as “the bastard offspring of Townes Van Zandt and June Carter Cash.” Their self-titled debut, produced by Ben Kyle of Romantica, dropped in early 2014; the Aster show will celebrate the appearance of their new CD, Abandon, a Fall 2016 release on St. Paul’s House of Mercy Records. Expanding from the folk and country vibe of the first Wilkinson James record, Abandon is a moody collection of original tunes that in a given moment might sound like folk, jazz, or alt-rock, as dobro, saxophone, and tremolo guitar wrap around rootsy vocals and care-worn lyrics.
