    Suzie Brown & Scot Sax, Jenee Halstead Suzie Brown writes songs to process her life. For a singer-songwriter, its not that unique of a creative impulse. But when youre also a cardiologist, used to being stoic and selfless on the job, the catharsis is even more essential.Music is my place to be honest, says Brown. I can say how I'm really feeling. I like not having to be so strong."That candor fuels Almost There, Browns fan-funded sophomore release, which finds her contemplating the joys and struggles of love with even more vulnerability than she brought to her 2011 debut Heartstrings. The album was produced by Oliver Wood (The Wood Brothers) and recorded live in Nashville.The Philadelphia-based Brown continues to carve out her place in the rich Folk/Americana tradition on the 11-song collection, which ranges from tender balladry to reggae-tinged blues and buoyant folk-rock as she bares the contents of her heart. But whether shes leaving love behind, embracing it with schoolgirl giddiness or meditating on yearnings unfulfilled, its her voice, dulcet, with a husky edge and hint of twang, that captivates.Brown is especially arresting on ballads like Fallen Down, a lament for the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, and Space Between, a plaintively elegant portrait of love in crisis.With her gift for unforgettable melodies and evocative lyrics, its hard to imagine its been only five years since she penned her first song. In that time, shes been named a finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong contest, a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, among other accolades, and had her music featured at Starbucks, The Gap and Anthropologie.http://www.suziebrownsongs.com/A modern American singer/songwriter in the truest sense of the genre, Jenee Halstead has much in common with Patty Griffin & Shawn Colvin in both writing style and delivery, what is more impressive is the fact that since her debut album was released in 2008 the quality of the writing has been up there with the very best. She's a keenly observant writer and has an eye for detail way beyond that of a young artist... Vocally she shares many attributes with Griffin, the range and phrasing certainly have distinct similarities, and this is no bad thing as it makes the whole collection of Jenee's work immediately engaging and somewhat familiar; but from the first listen it is obvious she is ploughing her own furrow with her mix of traditional and contemporary themes.Halstead grew up in the high desert of Spokane, Washington, the daughter of hippie parents who let her find her own direction. She spent her childhood exploring her mother's garden and singing along to records with her Dad. In middle school, she transformed into the rarest of birds; an athletic choir geek who sang medieval choral works, but loved Led Zeppelin and Dolly Parton. She wrote quietly on her own for years, moving from place to place Spokane to Seattle to nowhere Alaska, before moving to Boston in 2007. She collected all of her songs into what would become The River Grace. Raised By Wolves reclaims the careless freedom of her childhood with a sense of wonder that is unique and fiercely engaging.http://www.jeneehalstead.comPLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OF OUR TABLES SEAT FOUR PEOPLE.
