Two of Michigan’s rising singer-songwriters join forces for an evening of trading songs and performing duets of their own originals as well as the songs of some of their favorite artists.

The Music continues... with local performer, K. Michael Joseph

Date: 
Saturday, July 9, 2016 - 6:30pm
Location: 
Brewed Awakenings Cafe (Corner of Michigan Ave. and State St.)

K. MICHAEL Joseph is a solo acoustic singer/songwriter. His music has strong acoustic rhythms with slightly jazzy chord progressions.  He has recently been influenced by trip hop’s strong slow downbeats, slightly jazzy textures, and breathy longing, which is not a typical genre for acoustic solo artists to lean toward.  At the same time, he has not lost his love for his rock and pop roots.  His songs are stories, whether moody or joyous.

Join Shari Kane and Dave Steele for a four handed guitar party of original and time-honored blues, gospel, swing and ragtime. Steeped in Dave’s smoky vocals, percussive rhythm and innovative lead lines, Shari’s crisp picking style, rootsy leads, and stinging slide work, their music has been described as “street swing and stomp blues,” like the sounds once heard in Mississippi juke joints and on the streets of Harlem.
