SPECIAL GUEST MIKE REEB
Canadian-born artist Sam Weber spans an eclectic range of roots, americana, improvisational music and jazz influences. He has released three LPs of his own material, collaborated with Grammy winners, and contributed guitar to the 2021 Juno-winning Bahamas album, Sad Hunk. Supporting his latest release Get Free, Sam is going forth with the same intention and mantra as when he began: “Music is an emotional conduit between people and allows us the opportunity to share moments of truth and unity. In an age where the ritual of music-making can be a solitary exercise, I want to live my life to remind everyone that playing music as a communal and spontaneous practice can be healing and powerful.”
Documenting all the joy and wonder and heartbreak and confusion of life in your early 20s, Matthew Fowler’s stunning label debut, The Grief We Gave Our Mother, is a profoundly personal work of self-discovery and introspection, but more than that, it’s an ode to growing up and chasing dreams. The songs here wrestle with love and loss in the face of ambition and independence, and the arrangements are captivatingly complex to match, layering dynamic guitars, breathy woodwinds, and lush harmonies into a transcendent soundscape that blurs the lines between traditional roots music and experimental chamber folk. The result is a record that’s at once bold and timid, hopeful and anxious, world-weary and naïve, an honest, revelatory collection all about forging a life of purpose, passion, and meaning.
Born and raised in Florida, Fowler fell in love with music at an early age, and by 19, he’d already self-released his debut and begun booking his own cross-country tours. Critics were quick to take notice, with American Songwriter praising Fowler’s “earnest, strummy songcraft” and The Bluegrass Situation proclaiming that his “assured, velvety vocals are rivaled only by the intimacy of his lyrics.” In addition to helping Fowler land support slots with everyone from Richard Thompson and Damien Jurado to Angel Olsen and The Weepies, the music also caught the ear of acclaimed producer Shane Leonard, who invited Fowler to Eau Claire, WI, to complete work on The Grief We Gave Our Mother in 2020.
Born in northwest Indiana and raised in the south Chicago suburb of Lansing, songwriter Mike Reeb has shared the stage with Pieta Brown, Alejandro Escovedo, Brooke Annibale, Phoebe Bridgers, Andru Bemis, Joe Pug, Jeremy Messersmith, Bailey Williams, Gaby Moreno, Bill Mallonee, and Sleeping at Last at such notable venues as Double Door (Chicago), Hotel Café (LA), Rockwood Music Hall (NYC), Czar Bar (Kansas City), Listening Room Café (Nashville), Duffy's Tavern (Lincoln, NE), Fitzgerald's (Berwyn, IL), Brainwash Cafe (San Francisco), Frequency (Madison), Acadia Cafe (Minneapolis), Rumba Café (Columbus, OH), Cause A Scene (Nashville), Do317 Lounge (Indianapolis), Tonic Tavern (Milwaukee), and Schubas Tavern (Chicago). Reeb's musical and song-writing influences include Ray Charles, Merle Haggard, Gillian Welch, Jeff Tweedy, Damien Jurado, John Steinbeck, Ray Davies, and Bob Dylan. His original song 'Outside (Not in Here)' made its way into the 2010 feature film, Janie Jones.
