Chicago songwriter Heather Styka cuts to the truth with gutsy vulnerability. With a heartfelt croon that brings to mind Billie Holiday or Patsy Cline, Styka combines the lyrical intricacy of folk with a catchy melodic pop sensibility and the grit of classic country in songs that are smart and disarming.
Hailing from Halifax in eastern Canada, Campbell Woods sings soft songs about hard luck. Writing songs rooted in the tradition of Townes Van Zandt, his style is tried and true, but he's no dinosaur.
Catch both of these great musicians on a double bill of amazing music. Welcome Heather Styka and Campbell Woods to our stormy stage Friday, February 23.
