Anna Tivel & Jeffrey Martin
June 22, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM CDT$22
Anna Tivel is a NW based, internationally touring songwriter who is forever drawn to the quiet stories of ordinary life. The characters and imagery that populate her writing are full of breath and vivid color. With four full length albums out and a fifth on the way, Anna has been likened to a short story writer and praised by NPR, Rolling Stone, Billboard, and others for her keen observations of the human condition.
Anna’s most recent album, The Question, was called ‘one of the most ambitious folk records of 2019’ by NPR. She was selected as the winner of both the Telluride Troubadour songwriting award and the Kerrville New Folk award. Most recently she was awarded the ASCAP Foundation’s Sammy Cahn Award, which recognizes promising or aspiring lyricists. Her previous album, ‘Small Believer,’ was heralded by NPR as “an album that repeatedly achieves this exquisite balance of the quotidian and the sublime.”
Jeffrey Martin of Portland, Oregon has released three albums, two of which on the independent label Fluff and Gravy Records. His latest, One Go Around, debuted in October 2017. In its review of the album, No Depression declared, “Portland singer-songwriter Jeffrey Martin has proven with his last few albums and his many shows that he truly possesses a gift for marrying Americana music and expertly penned words in an expressive way that paints a vivid picture of people, places, and events that are at once relatable and highly interesting.”
Martin has shared shows with Sean Hayes, Gregory Alan Isakov, Courtney Marie Andrews, Jeffrey Foucault, Joe Pug, Peter Mulvey, Sean Rowe, and others.
