RAILHEART / CHRISTIAAN WEBB AND FRIENDS 21+ / no cover / free street parking ---------------------------------------------------------------- CHRISTIAAN WEBB AND FRIENDS (8-9 pm) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Webb_Brothers https://www.facebook.com/Xtiaan72 2019 will see the re-release of A Man Possessed. The debut solo album by Christiaan Webb features 12 songs that represent the culmination of a life-altering spiritual journey for Christiaan. Eldest son of songwriting legend Jimmy Webb (Witchita Lineman, Galveston, By The Time I Get To Phoenix), Christiaan first came to public attention as part of The Webb Brothers, a band he formed with his younger brother, Justin. In 1998, the demo album ‘Beyond The Biosphere’ was released to critical acclaim in the U.K. and was quickly picked up by London-based label Easy!Tiger Records and released the following year. The Webb Brothers then signed with Warner Music and the album ‘Maroon’ was released to critical and commercial success in 2000. Touring extensively, the brothers built a strong fan base in the UK that continues to this day. 2003 saw the release of the eponymous ‘The Webb Brothers’ album (as well as recruitment of brother James), showcasing the versatility and depth of Christiaan’s songwriting. In 2009, the brothers joined their father to form ‘Jimmy Webb and The Webb Brothers,’ releasing the reflective, mature-sounding ‘Cottonwood Farm’ (Proper Music). Following this collaboration, Christiaan began work on the songs that form ‘A Man Possessed’, partly inspired by the writings of Don Miguel Ruiz. “The way this album came about has been a spiritual journey more than anything else,” says Christiaan. “Last year, I read the book The Four Agreements. It affected me; a Toltec wisdom book had changed my life. This was quite a change for a guy who had been a freewheeling rock-and-roller for 18 years.” The album began to take shape in early January 2011, the songs coming in a flash - lyrics, melody and chords, sometimes all in an hour or less. “I had never experienced anything like it. They were coming out so fast and they were some of the best songs I had ever written. I felt like a marionette, my fingers moving to new and unexpected places on the piano. I really did feel like a man possessed.” ----------------------------------------------------------------------- RAILHEART FIRST THURSDAYS RESIDENCY AT MONTROSE SALOON (9:15 - 11 pm) These gents were astoundingly excellent when they came in for a landing a while back, so we're having them in the first Thursday of the month (starting February 7th through August 1st) to rip it up some more.
