Julia Mark & Kaiti Jones in the Haymarket Lounge - 7/7/18
at The Haymarket Lounge
TICKETS ARE $10.00 IN ADVANCE & $12.00 AT THE DOOR.
Kaiti Jones and Julia Mark have been making waves in Boston’s singer-songwriter scene, particularly with the releases of their recent albums (“VOWS” and “Gemini”, respectively). Although they hail from divergent musician traditions, both artists explore the human condition with clever lyrics, exquisite musicianship, and wisdom beyond their years. Both Kaiti Jones and Julia Mark sold out the historied Club Passim with the release of their albums this year.
More about Kaiti:
Kaiti Jones has been making her home in the Boston folk scene since 2010. A native of Portland, Maine, she spent four years in Nashville, falling in love with Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, and Flannery O’Connor and gravitating toward her now beloved ballad form before returning to her northern roots.
Jones’ first two releases were EPs - “Arise Child” in 2009, written and recorded in Nashville, and “Growing Things,” her first Boston release in 2013. For her first full-length album, VOWS, she teamed up with Golden Bear Records (The Well Pennies) in Des Moines, Iowa and released the album at the end of 2017 to a sold-out room at Club Passim in Cambridge.
Jones’ music is Americana soaked in melancholy, with the occasional foot stomper thrown in for good measure. Her voice is simultaneously earthy and ethereal, carrying the listener a few feet off the ground on a cloud of rich, sophisticated melodies while whispering truth and contemplating the human condition through good old-fashioned storytelling.
More about Julia:
As a singer-songwriter and pianist, Julia Mark creates lyric-driven, optimistically dissonant songs about life on the moon, loss of memory, shifting homes, and palindromes. With the songwriting penchant of Carole King and the soft-easy vocal of Suzanne Vega, Julia is for the listener who likes to transcend into a musical and visual scene.
Julia Mark grew up in semi-rural New Jersey listening to bebop greats and folk music legends.
After several years of classical piano lessons, she began writing her own music as a student of the late jazz pianist, Eric Doney. Upon moving to Boston in 2013, she became immersed in the singer-songwriter community. Since then, Julia Mark has performed throughout New England and was selected as an Iguana Music Fund Grantee, spurring the creation of her first full-length album, Gemini (2018).
