Joe Stevens and Humble Tribe and Eli Conley at La Pena, Berkeley
October 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Joe Stevens, formerly of Coyote Grace, comes to La Pena for the release of his first solo album Last Man Standing. Joining him is Humble Tripe (Durham NC) and Berkeley favorite Eli Conley.
Pushing the boundaries of folk-Americana, North Carolina based Humble Tripe joins forces with producer MelissaYork (Amy Ray, The Butchies) on their most recent offering. Moving from songwriter to symphony, resulting in a haunting landscape of beautiful swells, dramatic tension and space, Humble Tripe shines on their latest album, The Giving.
“A joy to behold, a collection of lovely, sublime melodies that shimmer and sparkle with a radiance all their own.”” No Depression
Humble Tripe’s Shawn Luby, a nationally recognized classical guitar player in his youth, and longtime collaborator, Berklee School of Music graduate Stud Green, have been quickly gaining attention after winning numerous traditional grass roots band and songwriting competitions up and down the East Coast. The duo brings their sweet brand of orchestral folk to the West Coast this fall, and along with it, a glimpse into the future of southern American folk music.
Eli Conley is a Bay Area-based singer-songwriter with a voice that shifts deftly from country choirboy to soulful croon at the turn of a phrase. Steeped in roots music and the singer-songwriter tradition, he crafts modern day folk songs for misfits from the raw material of his life as a queer man with Virginia roots.
In 2013 Eli released his first full-length album, At The Seams. “That voice!” wrote Tom Semioli of Minor 7th, “Eli Conley possesses the rare gift of a distinctive vocal timbre that separates him from scores of singer-songwriters in the modern folk ilk. On his stunning debut… unforgettable songs of love, yearning, and spirituality abound.” Eli recorded the album at Empty Sea Studios in Seattle with producer and multi-instrumentalist Michael Connolly (Indigo Girls, Coyote Grace, Michelle Shocked).
