Early James

Parterre One
Thursday, 04 May

Alabama native Early James released his sophomore album, “Strange Time to Be Alive,” in August 2022. The lyrical wordsmith evokes the ghosts of great southern gothic writers from Eudora Welty to William Faulkner, while channeling the haunted spirits of Tom Waits and Townes Van Zandt. The album conjures a timeless blend of abandoned blues, wistful folk, and tin-pan alley crooning, anchored by the singer's distinctive voice, which fluctuates filled from pain-filled shouting to forlorn whispering. His songs tread the waters of somber broken hearts, with the wry humor of the sad clown.
Tickets are CHF 28 in advance and CHF 30 at the door.
