Papa Jack Couch
Papa Jack Couch is a singer/songwriter of insight and wit. He performs originals forged over long years of two-lane blacktops and smoke-rise sundowns, with direct influences reaching back to Gram Parsons and Johnny Cash. Emerging with relevance and thump, he brings fresh perspective to the age-old themes; life of the soul, pain of the heart. His material resonates especially with those still trying to grow into actual adulthood. With a voice of Tupelo honey over burnt sourdough, and a rhythm playing style -- on a battered ‘59 hockshop Martin -- just good enough to forestall eviction, his performances are always saved by inventive, insightful writing and an amazing range of observation.
A video of his song Hazel Eyes, by the Attic Sounds crew, was just released on immersiveatlanta.com, and an interview on his background has been recently published in the online magazine Voyage ATL under ATL’s Most Inspiring Stories, East Atlanta. For this performance he’s bringing to the stage the full band involved in his recently released record, Meriwether. Featuring some of Atlanta’s best musicians, they’ll play all 12 songs from the CD and a few bonus cuts as well.
Lexi Street has brightened the Atlanta music scene now for more than a few years, writing bittersweet originals about love, intimacy and just being human. She performs them with a style and grace that can be described as an edgy softness tinged with wry humor and captivating charm. Most of her music has been steeped in Americana, jazz and pop, but she has been turning back lately toward her original influence of electronic music. Her latest release “Panorama”, inspired by some of her favorite artists – Massive Attack, Portishead, Zero 7, the XX, and Rhye, was just published and is available on all the major platforms. Nominated for the JPL Independent Music Awards for Bite The Hand in the Female Singer/Songwriter category, Lexi has also expanded her universe into film music, scoring and providing original songs for an exciting new feature-length project due out in late 2018. She was most recently a winner in Eddie’s Attic renowned Open Mic competition and a participant in their semi-annual shootout.
