Jay William Henderson, Strange Family, Flannel Graph

When: Thu., Jan. 8, 8:30 p.m. 2015

If you haven't heard of Flannel Graph, this winning duo from Kalispell, Mo., is a band that absolutely needs to be on your radar. Made up of singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Shayla (Flannel) Smith and backing vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Leon (Graph) Gregory, Flannel Graph create affecting, captivating but delicately minimal music that will make you pause and pay attention, for more than a few reasons. The sound itself is beautiful—a warm combination of guitar and a variety of acoustic instruments—but what really makes Flannel Graph so compelling is the mind and clear-as-a-bell voice of Smith. As heard on the band's sophomore release, Ribs of Adam—released in September—her poignant lyrics have a way of piercing the heart, such as the line "When I lived without you/ I didn't know the life I was missin'." Also on the bill are singer-songwriter Jay William Henderson and indie-rock/electronic band Strange Family. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
