Brad Byrd, John Jerome, and Marina & Berna
December 14 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$10
Brad Byrd writes songs that occupy the rarely-explored middle ground between indie rock and alt-country. He’s a genre-spanning musician, carving out a diverse sound fueled by melody, detailed storytelling, and the instincts of a journeyman songwriter who began making Americana music long before the genre had a name. Byrd grew up in Massachusetts and lived in Rockport for a time, but now makes his home in Los Angeles.
Gloucester’s John Jerome blends rock, pop, country and a little hip-hop in a soulful and tasteful manner that is unique to him. Growing up, John was always sure that he wanted to be a performer, singing and mimicking artists such as the Beatles, Paul Simon and the Eagles. John continues to hone his craft and is always finding new approaches to songwriting and storytelling.
Marina Evans and Bernardo Baglioni are an international folk/Americana duo who divide their time between Marina’s native Rockport and Bernardo’s native Italy. Combining Marina’s strong, sultry vocals, effortless melodies, and unusual lyrics with the raw, gritty edge of Berna’s slide guitar, sweet mandolin stylings, and vocal harmonies, the duo’s sound has been refined over years spent together on the road, the stage, and in the studio.
