Best known for being co-frontman of The Head and The Heart, Josiah Johnson heads an evening of songwriting based in a folk tradition that emphasizes connection to the internal source while recognizing the importance of communion and the connection to the light of others. Southern California native, current Bay Area resident, former Seattleite, one-time Torontonian, and longtime tour-bus resident Josiah Johnson’s solo performances highlight a stripped-down, emotive, lyrics-first kind of songcraft, inimitable in sincerity.

With a commanding voice that floats between the spirits of Chris Stapleton and Thrice, singer/songwriter Landon Elliott delivers earworm melodies and sobering lyrics drawn from his upbringing in small-town North Carolina to his move to Richmond in 2013. Elliott is ever in search of the human common denominator, pushing and pulling on stories with hooks and guitar riffs that call to mind early Kings of Leon recordings and Bruce Springsteen sonics. His debut LP will be released in early 2019 on American Paradox Records.
