AMY ANNELLE A prolific writer and interpreter of songs, Amy Annelle maps out the farther reaches of American music, while conjuring visions of our restless musical past. Over the course of a dozen albums & thousands of miles logged on the road, Annelle has cultivated a rarified voice and repertoire that "blooms with open-hearted, lustful vulnerability and a harrowing naturalistic solitude”(Crawdaddy). Her music was prominently featured in the Academy Award-winning film "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". She plays solo, and with genre-defying ensembles; her recording and live performances include work with Michael Hurley, Bill Callahan, Jandek and Jolie Holland. Annelle will be joined tonight by Houston improvisational musician John Alan Kennedy on percussion.

SONIA P. FLORES Flores will be joined tonight by Ruthie Langston. Sonia Flores is an upright bassist out of Houston, Texas. Her experimental music consists of broken song structures and textural vocal style. Ruthie Langston is a cellist out of Houston, Texas. She is known for her affiliation with Houston poets and her experimental musical style.

LITTLE MAZARN Lindsey’s kind and twisting voice ambles along over the spare sounds of Jeff Johnston’s saw bowing, Ralph White’s electric mbira wanderings, and her own slow banjo. Like DJ Screw, Bohren & Der Club of Gore, and anyone who chooses to walk instead of ride, Lindsey realizes the amazing power of slow… slow… slow music. Lindsey is at once a baby and a wise old man. Get in this canoe at dawn on some Texas river that remembers when Comanche slept under the stars. Little Mazarn tonight is Lindsey Verrill and Jeff Johnston.

The JSB Music Room is an intimate performance space located inside MECA (Multicultural Education & Counseling through the Arts), founded by Ruth Bailey and Elizabeth Sosa Bailey in memory of Jeffrey Samuel Bailey, their late husband and father, respectively. Housed in Houston’s Historic Dow School, the JSB Music Room is a place where the spirit of Jeff’s love of music lives on.
