GRANT GLAD, JOHN LOUIS, AJ SCHEIBER: Songwriters in the Round at the Aster $10

Thursday, August 10, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Three distinctive voices and musical visions, together on one stage for two hours of songs and stories in the fabled tradition of the Nashville “song pull.”

Here’s some info on the individual artists:

The music of Minneapolis-based Americana singer-songwriter Grant Glad transforms the day-to-day struggle of American living into foot-stomping, full-hearted anthems about chasing dreams and dancing while you do it. At times twangy, at times funky, his albums stretch the boundaries of several genres to produce something entirely new: songs that offer the loose, raw spirit of punk rock, the bold, driving rhythms of roots rock-and-roll, and the rich sense of personal history that makes classic country forever relevant.

John Louis crafts heartworn country folk songs. Born of a blend of observation, experience, introspection and empathy, John’s songs have garnered attention and awards from prestigious songwriting showcases including the Kerrville New Folk competition, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase, and the Great River Folk Fest songwriter contest. Born in Minneapolis, John Louis grew up on a farm outside the city where he nurtured his introverted side meandering through the woods, wetlands and pastures, alone with his thoughts and observations and perhaps a dog or two. At home he was exposed to healthy doses of songwriting giants from the 60s and 70s on his parents’ turntable. Eventually that solid base led him to the usual list of folk and country icons who shaped his songwriting sensibility. For years now a committed city dweller, John retains a watchful eye and ear attuned to a good story, a poetic line, and an occasional nugget of truth.

AJ Scheiber is a Twin Cities-based songwriter and co-leader (with Liz Wilkinson) of the folk / honky-tonk band Wilkinson James. He once described his musical persona to an interviewer as “sort of a non-smoking John rine,” but in his rootsy, poetic songs you’ll also hear traces of Hank Williams, Mose, Allison, Gram Parsons, and (of course) Minnesota’s own Bob Dylan. His first solo album, Town Boy, released in April 2020, garnering airplay on Minnesota Public Radio’s The Current 89.3 and other regional broadcast outlets. He’s currently at work on a second album with Grammy-nominated producer Mark Stockert (Brian Setzer, Rosie Flores).
