Joshua Wentz Record Release Show!
Saturday March 7th, 3PM
Come celebrate the vinyl release of Joshua Wentz's latest album "Lifted, Into The Depths" with an afternoon of songwriting and soundscapes.
Joshua Wentz has released his new album via 1473 Recordings. Lifted, Into the Depths is a downtempo mix of electronic and acoustic elements focused around a foundation of piano songwriting, and is a roughly conceptual rumination on different versions of the end of the world.
cinchel is a Chicago based musician working with guitar, effects and laptop to create abstract ambient music that is both minimal and dense. his main focus has been the interaction of sounds/notes with themselves. With only the use of delay, layering and distortion he attempts to make a lot of guitars no longer sound like guitars. He likes to call this minimal dense music for that reason.
Colin Morris is a multi-instrumentalist songwriter from Akron, Ohio. He's been composing melodic, alternative rock since childhood piano lessons gave way to experimenting with guitars and drums. Being the only kid in the house required playing and recording all the instruments himself, and Colin stuck to that method on his 2015 debut, Could Be Anything. He has the good fortune of teaching music full time in Chicago while playing shows throughout the Midwest with a rotating cast of talented friends.
