Rees Shad of the former Sweetwater Recording Studio in North Greenwich reacquaints himself with his old stomping grounds. A masterful artist and musician, Rees will bring out the very best in our room.
A suggested donation event.
Some words on Rees:
“As loamy as 10 yards of Midwestern topsoil and his complex is a nest of small town relationships … Unexpectedly literate & moving”
“A glorious American Songbook… A brilliant, deeply American writing… powerful and suggestive.”
“Each song tells a story, and the outcome is a very beautiful, haunting sound that reminds this reviewer of work from the Band and Charlie Sexton.”
“A rare class inhabits the man’s songwriting that’s not often encountered today.”
“An eye for detail and gift for absorbing narrative.”
The Dallas Observer
“Unfair to describe this work in terms of another – it’s that personal, that complete, and that well done. Shad has an expressive voice that bends around the emotions of a song while oral textures change from the grey foreboding of a sky about to snow to the ruddy light of a neighborhood bar.”
“An accomplished and seasoned artist.”
