SWEET DUETS: GENNA and JESSE
January 6th, Friday 8-10PM
Luckily for us, the next stop on Genna & Jesse's international tour for their new album, Asphalt Rhapsody, is our very own No. Six Depot in West Stockbridge. The duo's combination of "quirky chemistry, intricate vocal harmonies and ardent storytelling" give life to their songwriting and vibrant performances. You'll hear whispers (and sometimes roars) of folk, blue-eyed soul, jazz, blues, and "retro soul pop" that fuses into something both sweet and sultry. Suggested donation $15.
