A quartet of singers, songwriters and multi-instrumentalists – Stuart Robinson, Daniel Michalak, Bryan Rahija and James Phillips – Bombadil is as much a family as a band, a collective of like-minded friends who just happen to be innovative musicians. Following up on their 2011 highly acclaimed, All That the Rain Promises, they are now set to release Metrics of Affection, a cornucopia of styles marked by mischievously surrealistic lyrics and their familiar lush harmonies. Their inventive arrangements add funk, country, boogie woogie, rap, early rock and hints of classic pop songwriting, circa 1940, to their already eclectic sound.

Accompanying Bombadil is Samantha Crain who will be promoting Kid Face, her third full-length album, a revelatory song cycle as expansive as the wide-open spaces of the 26-year-old artist’s native Oklahoma, and as intimate as a conspiratorial whisper. This wildly original album stands as the definitive statement thus far from an uncommonly insightful, fearlessly honest young singer/songwriter.

Limited seating is available in our Downstairs venue. For those who require seating, please call in advance.
