Jakes

Posted by on Mar 30, 2019

Today’s the big day. Songwriter William Harries Graham brings his new album, Jakes, into the world. The title is a nod to a certain neon sign you’ll see in the back room at The Continental Club on South Congress, where Graham has had an ongoing residency, and where he’s performed with several other artists in countless shows. All the great memories under one roof, marked by that neon glow…

Graham’s latest release, produced by Grammy Award-winner Stuart Sullivan, is an ethereal trip winding through hushed tones, hues, and slow burn build-ups into dramatic, dreamscape rock.

Graham celebrates the release of his new album with a show tonight at Cosmic Coffee & Beer Garden, 121 Pickle Rd. Several special guests will join the party this evening, including one Jon Dee Graham, along with Jeremy Nail, Amy Cook, Kacy Crowley, Suzanna Choffel, Matt the Electrician, Abra Moore, Bobby Daniel, and Chris Searles. The party starts at 9 p.m. Recommended.
