David Jacobs-Strain, Christopher Worth and Haley Johnsen

New EPs to be Released Simultaneously

Three of the area’s brightest young artists will come together for one special night to release new music EPs at the Alberta Rose Theatre. 

David Jacobs-Strain is a fierce slide guitar player and song poet known for both his virtuosity and spirit of emotional abandon. His live shows move from humorous, subversive blues, to delicate balladry, and then swing back to swampy rock and roll. It’s a range that ties Jacobs-Strain to his own generation and to guitar-slinger troubadours like Robert Johnson and Jackson Browne.   

Christopher Worth, better known locally as Worth, has become known for his unique style of bohemian blues, which he developed as a street performer traveling across the U.S. and Europe. His songs are timeless and real, tied together by the power and purity of his voice. 

Together, Strain and Worth have collaborated with performances the past couple of years and have created new music that they will be sharing and releasing at this show. 

Haley Johnsen’s newest release, When You Lit The Sky, is a soulful helping of blues and pop songwriting with nostalgic arrangements, and a window into the great passions of an artist whose dynamic vocals soar and whose heart is eternally, vulnerably, human. 

Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta St., Thursday, July 23, 8 pm. $15 advance at Etix.com, $20 at the door. VIP seating (first few rows center stage) available for $30. Minors OK when accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

This show has been rescheduled from March 28. If you purchased a ticket to this event prior to the date change and can no longer make this show, please contact the venue for a refund of your purchase.
