John Swardson + Joe George $15
Friday, May 20 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Based in Minneapolis, John Swardson writes songs that bleed through the holes in the soles of his boots. “A songwriter of uncommon emotional detail, depth, and empathy.”
His catalog includes three records of originals, another soon to be released and a wide variety of covers that dart through his own music like Starlings at dusk.
John has opened for many influences over the last handful of years including:
Sturgill Simpson, BJ Barham (American Aquarium), Ben Nichols (Lucero), Semisonic, Gene Ween, Tommy Stinson, and Echo and The Bunnymen.
Joe George is a songwriter, film composer, and video host of music YouTube channel, REVERB.
Joe’s debut record, Beautiful Dreams, was signed to German indie label, Eternal Sound Records, in early 2019. The release was followed by a European tour. Joe supported this record on a solo tour in Japan later that year.
Joe George’s songs encompass a range of color, from folk and Americana, to cinematic and spacious. His tasteful use of string quartet arrangements on recordings adds a breath and emotion to his music.
Joe’s work with REVERB has been featured in The New York Times, Consequence of Sound, Guitar Player Magazine, and People Magazine. And a number of the videos he has hosted/performed in have gone viral, earning him global notoriety amongst music and gear lovers.
Joe’s film compositions earned him an Emmy nomination for his work on humanitarian based documentary series, Seeing Brave.
Joe George has firm roots in the Chicago music community. He is well-respected for his dedication to his own music, as well as the production and curation of other artists’ music in the community.
