SHARIF

Sharif – who is currently earning his Masters at the Berklee College of Music – has made quite a name for himself on the touring front, vacillating from playing intimate solo acoustic shows of his original material to belting out cover tunes (from Rihanna’s “Disturbia” to Maroon 5’s “Won’t Go Home Without You” to Beastie Boys “Girls”) at biker bars to playing one of his favorite genres of music, oldies, at retirement centers (because he wants to, not because he has to) to corporate gigs for Gap and Amstel Light to opening for the likes of Jason Mraz, Kenny Loggins, Rhett Miller, Rusted Root, and Blake Shelton.

“Music consumes me,” explains Sharif, who has approximately 2,000 shows around the world under his belt. “I just love playing music, teaching music, learning more about music, and doing whatever I can to get there.”

JULIA KASDORF
Dec 18 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
JULIA KASDORF

After years of performance being a bass sideman, and co-fronting popular Loudoun County, Virginia band, One Horse Town, Julia Kasdorf gives us her solo album, “Motel”. The 11 (8 original, 3 covers) acoustic guitar-driven songs show how deep and wide Julia’s musical experience has been. Solidly Americana, with gleams of Motown, “Motel” shows us what its like to grow up loving rock ‘n roll in a bluegrass household.

Recorded over the course of a year at studio in the woods, “Motel” pulls together everything that Julia loves about music – flat top guitar, driving rhythm, a little soul, and visceral songwriting. Julia produced her own album and invited local legends Jon Carroll, Lynn Kasdorf on pedal steel, Mike Ault, Buddy Dunlap, and Gary Ferguson to help bring her sound to the acetate. “Somethings didn’t quite work out, and I painted myself into a couple of corners. There were times when I absolutely didn’t know what to do and wished like heck I had a producer to tell me!” she acknowledges “but I picked the right musicians and “Motel” kicks *ss, just like I wanted it to.”

Julia feared that the weak point of the album might be her singing. With the help of Les “Nitty Gritty Dirt Band” Thompson, she got away from the kind of pushy delivery she’d developed playing live shows, and found a way to just let the words slip out like honey. Julia was surprised and gratified by the results, having unexpectedly discovered a new gentle subtlety in her voice. “I knew that in the process of making “Motel” I’d learn a lot about myself, about what I wanted to say, about how I wanted to say it. After all the music I’ve learned and absorbed over the years, I thought something pretty cool might happen.”
