The Young Fables Return to the Venue!!

The Young Fables Return to the Venue!!

Jun 21, 7:00pm

VENUE on Main

The Young Fables create music with classic storytelling weaved into traditional country roots music with pop sensibilities. East Tennessee (Maryville) natives, Laurel Wright and Wes Lunsford are influenced by timeless treasures like Patsy Cline, Bonnie Raitt, Glen Campbell and Chet Atkins. The duo’s unique sound has resonated with audiences around the globe as live performances have transformed into stages from which The Young Fables (TYF) discuss themes and topics typically saved for the therapy couch. Band manager Patryk Larney admits, ”Witnessing The Young Fables is like watching a tennis match of talent; her voice, his guitar work. ” Larney is not the first to notice the pair’s skillset. The sultry toned vocalist’s first break came when she won the Texaco Country Showdown at 16 years of age - the grand prize awarded her $100K and a performance on the prestigious Ryman Auditorium stage. Wright used the experience as a springboard to expand booking throughout east Tennessee and it wasn’t long before she caught the eye of Gretsch endorsed guitarist Wes Lunsford. The two discovered an instant connection and The Young Fables were born.

Wright and Lunsford joined forces with Music City’s Hope Tree Entertainment and the couple dropped their debut album Two in 2017, followed by Old Songs (a collaboration with GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Mitch Dane) in 2019. Their sound - a whimsical, distinguishable classic country-meets-Americana blend - was praised by iconic artists and taste-makers alike, with Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta calling Wright’s vocals “flawless,” and nine-time GRAMMY® Award winning artist Sheryl Crow tweeting, “Laurel’s as good as any country singer out there!” Their releases opened the door for a Rolling Stone “10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week” nod, direct support for artists like Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Lauren Alaina, Rascal Flatts and Josh Turner, and an invitation from multi-platinum songstress Shania Twain to take part in the CBS showcase celebration Real Country. “Wes is a perfect partner for Laurel’s voice. I fell in love with these guys as a genuine, authentic talent and sound,” mused Twain, and Travis Tritt added, “Our industry needs (TYF) right now!”

Now, The Young Fables have released their third record Pages (September 2022) and are gearing up for the rental release of their feature documentary 'The Fable of a Song', chronicling a remarkable series of events that rocked TYF in 2018. The story of the tragedies the band underwent have delivered a notable platform from which the duo speaks to a global audience about depression, loss and resilience. The film, produced by Patryk Larney, has already captured multiple awards, including the 2021 Nashville Film Festival Audience Choice Award. “We didn’t set out to write an album - we just starting writing as a means of release and it happened to resonate with people everywhere,” Wright reveals. “We feel fortunate to have a space to share our music and are so grateful that our story seems to be helping others with their healing. That’s a reward unlike any other.”

An Evening with Beth Bombara and Neil Salsich

An Evening with Beth Bombara and Neil Salsich

Aug 10, 7:00pm

VENUE on Main202 West Main StreetBelleville, IL62220 Map

An intimate evening with Beth Bombara and Neil Salsich. Many of you have watched Beth in the Venue and Neil on 2nd Street but this is a very special event in a Listening Room experience.

Beth Bombara’s last album, Evergreen, was well-received by fans and media alike. “The likes of Aimee Mann and Jewel are fair comparisons,” noted the L.A. Weekly, “every tone is tinged with emotion, nothing is wasted.”

With It All Goes Up, Bombara has risen to a new level and let some light in. “There's more light, more hope in this record,” she says, “and it feels more positive sonically, as well.” These songs were written during the chaos of the past couple years, and the time found Bombara looking for silver linings, writing to keep herself positive and keep her mind open and fresh. She continues, “During the pandemic I reconnected with an old guitar that had been collecting dust in my closet for many years. It’s a classical guitar, and I wrote a lot of the songs for this record on it, which brought something different to them and took the tone of the record in a new direction.” Bombara’s songwriting certainly did take a turn – upwards, in more ways than one.

Neil Salsich is a St. Louis-based guitarist, singer, songwriter and teacher. His musical journey began at age six when he learned how to operate his dad’s stereo so he could listen to “Ramblin’ Man” on repeat. He was born and raised in South St. Louis and remembers clearly the first time he performed live (at Hartford Coffee Company) at the age of 16. After returning from college in 2012 he formed a band with aspirations of maybe playing around a bit, calling themselves Acoustics Anonymous. Four years later they’ve traversed the country a handful of times, changed their name to The Mighty Pines, and even sold out The Old Rock House in St. Louis. He specializes in country, folk, and bluegrass but incorporates many elements of funk, soul, and jazz into his singing and playing. When he’s not on the open road with his band, he’s often found crooning at restaurants, cafes, and wine bars around town. Neil is passionate about the St. Louis music scene and never dreamed he’d meet so many world class players and songwriters in his city. He recently experienced a successful run on TV’s The Voice.

JD Graham is a touring musician that has experienced hardship and has lived to tell his stories through music. JD packs listening rooms across the US with his unique storytelling.

“ For such deeply confessional storytelling JD and co-producers Neilsen Hubbard and Ryan Culwell hold the album focus on pensive, raw-boned ballads. The value of and search for truth is entrenched in these songs. With a casually devastating voice and unshakable poise, JD Graham is bound to be the next great Americana star ... after I picked my jaw off the ground, I immediately put him on my radar. ” - Alan Cackett
