Luke Wade w/ Tommy Simmons

Genre: Singer-songwriter

Luke was a semi-finalist on the currently airing season of THE VOICE. Luke has an incredibly soulful voice. All Four judges Immediately turned their chairs.   Adam Levine declared him "quite possibly the best voice in the competition," and ultimately Luke chose Pharrell Williams as his coach.  He slayed the competition last week in the battle rounds, and his performance this coming Monday is quite the Knockout.  This boy is going to go far.  Growing up on Hurt Street in a sultry little Texas town might seem an auspicious beginning for a soul singer. But for Dublin’s Luke Wade, it’s hard to imagine that it would be anything short of destiny.

Born of extraordinary artists and self-described ‘Hippies’, Luke is the product of a home that truly cultivated creativity. The youngest of four children, his music is the modern manifestation of the introspective and enlightened notions instilled by his parents. Bob and Wanda spawned a self- awareness that makes Luke’s music inherently reflective, without need of gimmick or novelty. His insightful and thoughtful lyrics make it easy to imagine that if Hurt Street were located in some distant galaxy, this is still the music he would create.

An unlikely series of childhood ailments provided Luke with an early sense of perspective that many never find even as adults. A bout of spinal meningitis proved almost fatal, a paintball accident left him blind in one eye and some years later a severe heatstroke left him struggling to overcome temporary brain damage and amnesia. And though these experiences inevitably influence his music, it is not in the fatalistic way you might expect. While his songs may have that soulful ‘written on the porch because the house was too damned hot’ feel, the end result is a style that feels ever hopeful.

It is but a few times in a generation that an artist comes along with the potential to reflect so honestly the human condition. Such a calling requires a humility and self-awareness that seldom find an artist until late in his career, when he’s turned the corner from idealistic to philosophical. Often young singer-songwriters aspire to draw a picture with words, a melodic expression of the visual, hoping to capture a single meaningful moment in time. Luke aspires to capture our journey through it - and his sophomore album, “The River”, speaks to a brilliant departure on that journey.

The spring release of “The River” and a swell of media coverage have prompted renewed comparison to the likes of Ray LaMontagne. Each stylistically unique, Luke surrounds himself with exceptional musicians and remains keenly aware as to his place in the musical equation. His incomparable musicality requires more of the accompaniment than just support of the lyric, he allows it to build a distinctive setting in which to tell his story. When performing with his full band, Luke’s boisterous horn section and soulful voice are the perfect paring of audacity and nuance.

Luke’s writing is always honest and never self-indulgent, creating music that feels as much a part of the listener as the artist. His ‘damaged in transport but absolutely delivered’ charm has endeared him to his audience and encouraged a rabid following wherever he performs. Instinctively, Luke seems to realize that his success is always secondary to the song, resulting in a refreshing vulnerability that you couldn’t touch with a ten foot pole.

Music is at once frivolous and necessary. That rare artist willing to embrace this idea will become timeless, making the music that comes to describe generations and cultures, not simply as historical narrative, but as a conscious identity by which we willingly choose to define ourselves in real time. Meet Luke Wade.

Marty Balin (of Jefferson Airplane)

Genre: Everything , Rock

  1. Saturday, June 13 8:00 PM (All ages)

“Marty was the one who started the San Francisco scene”, says Bill Thompson, Balin’s roommate back in the mid-’60s and former manager of both the Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship. “Back in those days Marty was quite the businessman” said Paul Kantner. “He was the leader of the band on that level. He was the one who pushed us to do all the business stuff, orchestrating, thinking ahead, looking for managers and club opportunities. He was very good at it”. The Jefferson Airplane, initially a folk-rock venture, came to epitomize the psychedelic scene, scoring a gold record with their 1967 second album, Surrealistic Pillow. Balin’s soulful tenor proved a pivotal element of their sound. He also wrote key compositions including “It’s No Secret” “Today,” “Comin’ Back To Me” “Plastic Fantastic Lover” “Share a Little Joke,” and “Volunteers.”

“In my formative rock days, Bill Graham was my manager, and you couldn’t have a better teacher.” – Marty Balin At the end of 1978, after contributing several major hits including “Miracles,” “With Your Love,” “Count on Me,” and “Runaway” with Jefferson Starship, Marty left the band. In 1981, he released his first solo album, Balin, featuring two Top 40 hits. “Hearts” and “Atlanta Lady.” This was followed in 1983 by a second solo album. Lucky, along with a Japanese-only EP called “There’s No Shoulder.” After touring the world, Marty came home to San Francisco in 1984. 1989 a reunion album and tour with Jefferson Airplane followed. The people who saw the live shows saw the real Airplane. We did not let down the legend.”

Meklit Hadero

Genre: Singer-songwriter

  1. Saturday, June 27 8:00 PM (All ages)

If Joni Mitchell were East African, sang duets with Norah Jones and met Nina Simone for tea in San Francisco, it just might remind you of MEKLIT. Born in Ethiopia, based in San Francisco for the past nine years, singer/composer/cultural activist Meklit became a sensation with the release of her debut “On a Day Like This ” in April 2010. An enchanting album featuring luminous, original songs, and some traditional Amharic music as well. It got rave reviews across the board. NPR called Hadero’s sound, “a unique blend of jazz, Ethiopia, the San Francisco art scene and visceral poetry ; it paints pictures in your head as you listen.”  PBS said “You’ll hear hints of Billie Holliday, Tracy Chapman and Joni Mitchell in her music but Hadero is her own unique creation.” And the San Francisco Chronicle called Meklit ”...an artistic giant in the early stages. She is stunning.”
