Rick's Picks of the Week: Jolie Holland w/ Ali Marcus

Rick's Picks of the Week is Texas native, singer-songwriter Jolie Holland with Ali Marcus on Wednesday, September 28th, at 7:30 on the Mainstage at The Triple Door.

Holland's raspy, bluesy yet sincerely delicate vocals, and her multi-faceted, blues-folk melodies speak of the lives and breathes of her traveling memories through unconcealed reflection. Her music erases the space between ancient and modern with a sound that is as emotionally rich as it is timeless. Holland conveys the notion, "if something speaks to you and is meaningful, dates can become irrelevant" through a palatte of dirty guitar chords, drums, percussion, bass, synthesizers and gritty vocals.

The newest discography addition, Pint of Blood, which was released in June, is grounded in true experience and evokes memories of moonlit fields, past lovers, and the childhood dream of summer.

Accompanying Holland, is Seattle-based songwriter Ali Marcus whose lighthearted music sounds like a summer road trip through Eastern Washington with the windows down and the sun kissing the air.

See Jolie Holland w/ Ali Marcus on Wednesday, September 28th, at 7:30 on the Mainstage!
