CLAIRE AND THE BEARS / THOMAS COMERFORD
Monday, April 8; 8-11 pm; no cover; 21+
free street parking.
In early 2017 a few long time musical collaborators decided to throw former opera singer Claire Feeney into the front seat of a rock band. Her versatility along with lead guitarist John Szymanski's technical mastery allow the band to defy genre. Their live shows weave vocals and guitars through influences that include 70s arena rock, pop punk, Stax soul, feminist folk, and southern gothic country.
Regarding TC's: "Blood Moon"
"Notable new release." (No Depression)
"Savvy lyrics and sweet melodies." (Chicago Maroon)
"Worth the four-year wait . . a bucolic Lou Reed." (Chicago Reader)
"Weaves between melody and prose, recalling Leonard Cohen."
