The Easy with special guest Matthew Gailey plus Richard Fitzgerald (solo)
Dec 28, 2018 @ 9:00 pm$8
The Easy is a love letter to soul, gospel, blues, and funk; a medley of harmonies and hooks; Sweet Honey in the Rock meets D’Angelo. Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Betsy Lance created this vocal trio to bring her genre-bending songs to life, along with gospel powerhouse Jardima Kroeker and visual artist/singer Leah Hugon. Lyrically, the songs explore themes around resisting fear, reaching out, building community, and keeping hope in the midst of suffering—our work as humans and neighbors. Backed by a cast of Portland’s rising jazz musicians, The Easy delivers a driving combination of vocal harmonies and instrumental improv. This show will feature Alex Milsted on keyboards, Shook Black on drums, and Pete Lance on bass.
