OCTOBER 23
Steven Kirby Quintet
The 'Illuminations Project' with vocalist Aubrey Johnson

Brandon Music is delighted to announce the return of the Steven Kirby Jazz Quintet. The Boston based quintet will be performing contemporary and mainstream jazz on Saturday October 23 at 7:30pm. When reviewing the music of the Steve Kirby Jazz Quintet, All About Jazz states, “Kirby's music manifests the truth that jazz is an art built on growth and renewal”.

THis time, the band present Kirby's 'Illuminations Project"

Guitarist, composer and educator Steven Kirby is known for performing exciting, melodic, lyrical and expressive mainstream and contemporary jazz. Described as “richly textured, multi-layered, ebullient and lyrical jazz”, he writes original compositions and arrangements, as well as creative arrangements of standard tunes. The Boston Globe says “Kirby plays and writes from inside the music, putting melody and feeling first.”

Jazz Times says Kirby's “creative music – frequently beautiful and always well played – results from personal expression that transcends mere imitation”. His most recent album,” Illuminations” was an Editor's Pick earlier last year in the prestigious jazz publication Downbeat : “Steven Kirby, a guitarist of rippling technique and a poetic mind, has developed a modern jazz guitar style that bridges the angular lyricism of Pat Metheny and the painterly asceticism of Jim Hall.”

His music has been played on over 100 radio stations in the US and internationally including features on NPR's ‘Here and Now', ‘Jazz with Bob Parlocha' and ‘Eric in the Evening'. An Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music, Kirby's jazz compositions have won awards in the International Songwriting Competition, the Billboard Song Contest and Downbeat.

He has appeared on over 25 released recordings, including three as a leader and has performed and/or recorded with many of today's most respected contemporary musicians including Chris Potter, George Garzone, Mike Manieri (Steps Ahead), Scott Colley, Bruce Barth, Joe Lovano, Javon Jackson, Harvie Swartz, Joe Hunt, Steve Hunt, George Schuller, Allan Holdsworth, Matt Malley (of Counting Crows) and others. He has toured in the U.S., Canada, the UK, Caribbean, Europe, China and Africa.

For lovers of jazz music this is a performance that should not be missed

NOVEMBER 6
Steve Hartmann
with special guest Drew Breder

Brandon Music again presents the compelling and enigmatic singer-Songwriter, Steve Hartmann from Jericho, Vermont. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Hartmann majored in piano and double majored in stage performance and song writing, Hartmann is known for his unique sound, pristine vocals and engaging stage presence that draws you in and leaves you stunned. Born in Dalat, Vietnam towards the end of the Vietnam War Hartmann was adopted at the age of 5 months. He struggled to find a sense of belonging until he found music at the age of 12. He's a self taught guitar player and a classically trained pianist. He started the journey of finding his “sound” when he met his best friend and bassist, Drew Breder, at age 18. Using various vocal effects and looper pedals, his sound has grown to be readily identifiable as his own Having opened for major label acts like Jeffrey Gaines, Chris Carrabba and Reeve Carney, and won several singer-songwriter contests, Steve's dynamic vocal range, lyrically driven tunes and captivating stage presence sets him apart. Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional and Twin Forks says, “Steve's vocals are pristine”. The incomparable Livingstone Taylor who taught Hartmann at Berklee College said, “I was blown away-speechless.” The powerful American singer songwriter and guitarist Jeffrey Gaines commented, “ If you ever get a chance to see him live, take it. You won't regret it.”

On this occasion Steve will be accompanied by special guest Drew Breder
