Photos + Review | Joe Purdy + Amber Rubarth @ Brighton Music Hall

[youtube][/youtube] If you were lucky enough to catch Joe Purdy and Amber Rubarth when they graced Boston with their amazing stage presence at Brighton Music Hall on Thursday, February 1st for the “American Folk on Tour” show you witnessed a duo perfectly in sync with each other, and with the political climate we live in today. The two storytellers in song currently star in the new movie, American Folk, and are crisscrossing the country in support of the film’s beautiful soundtrack, which is a collection of classic folk songs and original compositions by Purdy and Rubarth.

Mixtape | January 2018

Welcome to 2018. Our first mixtape is a doozy. The way this mixtape went, it’s going to be the year of female fronted band. I’m so so stoked on this mixtape and I hope you like it as much as I do. As always, let us know what we’ve missed (if anything), and please do enjoy.

Mixtape | November 2017

Press Play I feel like I’m more stoked about the music on this mixtape than maybe any other month, but when I look back and I see other mixtapes, I think I say the exact thing every month. Regardless, this November dispatch of tunes is fantastic, and I’m super psyched to get it in front of your eyes an in your ears. Enjoy, and as always let me know what I missed!

“I don’t have anything prepared, but I’m here…” Purdy remarked as he looked over to a stool that held a bottle of water, a cup full of amber liquid and his notebook. And with that, we embarked on an evening of music that brings people together not just for enjoyment, but for a reason. I’ve previously babbled on extensively about Joe Purdy’s ability to draw a crowd in and keep every ear and eye attentive to his performance, and this past Sunday night at Brighton Music Hall was no different. But I feel that there’s a clarification that needs to…

2016 | Steve’s Top Albums of the Year

It would be no exaggeration to say that this was a stormy year that was challenging for a lot of people on a lot of different levels. When these kinds of times are upon us, music is consistently there to help lift us, unite us, rally us and carry us through. 2016 certainly proved that to be true for me (yet again.) From the first week of January to the waning moments of the December, the albums on this list—along with probably a hundred others—gave me something to continually look forward to. I hope they did the same for you,…

#50WordReview | Joe Purdy: Who Will Be Next

All hail the return of the protest song. Joe Purdy brings back songs that cut to the root of our issues and plead that we all treat each other as we should—with tolerance and kindness. It’s time for our music to mean something again. This is an important album.     * Reminds us of: music that mean something, Woodstock, sigh… Dylan * Add to queue: New Year’s Eve, Who Will Be Next, Children of Privilege, Cairo Walls, Maybe We’ll All Get Along Someday     Joe Purdy: Soundcloud | iTunes | Spotify | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram


New Music | Joe Purdy – New Years Eve

If there was ever a stirring song that could shake you to the core, it’s Joe Purdy’s newest, “New Years Eve.” Written as a reflection of the year past, and looking to the future, it’s a shining example of pure optimism in songwriting form, and I’ll be damned if I don’t agree with every god damn word of it. This call for hope, peace and unity carries a torch of the 60’s movements, and sounds like it came recorded on a tape and sat and gathered dust somewhere in a basement at Stax. Good luck not putting it on repeat. The…
