Music is back at Aster Cafe!
Elliott Blaufuss + Johanna Mathews $15
Saturday, July 9 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Playing only four shows throughout 2020 was the least amount in a year’s time since starting a band at the young age of ten. Elliott hit the road at 17 (wielding any of the 10 instruments he plays) and eventually became sideman and musical director for artists such as:
Gavin DeGraw, Phillip Phillips, and Eric Hutchinson.
While writing and performing his own material casually for years, he is finally putting his own vehicle into drive with the releases of the Funk/Soul EP “Red” in 2018, followed by the warm and emotive “Blue” in late 2019.
Glamour Magazine and Julia Michaels took notice in early ’19, when Blaufuss covered the pop smash “Issues” on youtube.
When Covid hit Elliott started AIRWAVS, a long distance musical collaboration reaching over 33 artists across the country. It was released in May with the proceeds going to the artists involved.
With new music and videos on the way, he also gives a thoughtful perspective on society in his pandemic-based, visual poem Neighbors, an interview discussing race in 2021 and a heartfelt and truthful collection of writings and poems called “The Wicker Basket”, soon to be available.
Whether he is singing a ballad behind the organ or tearing up a Telecaster, keep an eye out and a chair open for this colorful and soulful troubadour.
Johanna Mathews is a Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter. Her music is a haunting, soulful and contemplative. We live in a quickly changing world where sexual and racial discrimination, poverty, terrorism and the like provoke questions about an individual’s purpose. Music creates a space for simultaneous observation of our reality. The struggle is real and so is the downright breathtaking wonder of existence. Let’s talk about it.
