About this Event

THE BOXELDERS

Psychedelic blues-rock-jazz-folk would be the best way to describe The Boxelders, however, it seems as though what they create is something you've never heard before. Their first album, "Millennial Getaway" was released on March 31st, 2018.

ELLISA SUN

“Ellisa Sun is a force of nature.” (KFOG) She cuts out her heart and leaves it on the stage—which is why she never wears white.

Currently on her first national tour, Ellisa is showing she has what it takes to make it on her own. Just a guitar, a 30-foot RV, and an insatiable desire to perform.

Raised in Los Angeles, Ellisa migrated north and found a home in San Francisco’s creative scene, where she wrangled a seven-piece band to play her music. Her sound is honest and textured, combining elements of jazz, soul, and pop.

Ellisa self-produced her debut album Moon & Sun in 2017 to critical acclaim. SF Weekly called the first single, Unravel “as near to perfect as any song could be” and “damn gorgeous.”

Ellisa self-released her 2nd album—the Just a Little More EP—in September 2018. With support from her talented bandmates, the 5-track EP boasts a one-of-a-kind, edgy sound that “takes listeners on a trip across all spectrums of love” (WomenCrushMusic) and is “too much of an original to fit into one box” (The Bay Bridged).

Since releasing her album, Ellisa has ventured out on a year-long national tour. Living full-time out of their Winnebago, she and her partner Ken are taking the music directly to the people. Ellisa and her guitar have also earned frequent flyer miles in Japan and South America.

JOHN BRADLEY

John Bradley was raised in Atlanta, Georgia, where he found solace early in old 70’s folk/rock records. Bradley moved to Idaho for university, where he first began writing and performing songs and then, later, to Buenos Aries, Argentina. The years spent living in the violent and unpredictable slums of Buenos Aires shaped and cemented the “tragic and sweet” messages present in his music.

These messages and the hard-edged, stark landscapes of the Rocky Mountains seep into the compositions on Wishcon, which are reflective, yet somehow harrowing in execution. Bradley draws on inspiration from the untidy and unseemly parts of ourselves that we tend to hide even from the people closest to us.
