Music Scene: Aug. 12
Kentucky-based country singer/songwriter Jeremy Pinnell has been there, and done that.
It isn’t pretty and he doesn’t want to talk about it.
So he sings about it.
Pinnell is touring in support of his recent, highly-acclaimed album, “OH/KY” and will perform at 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 18, at Edgewater Brewery, 905 Struthers Ave.
“Raised from humble beginnings of singing in church and learning the guitar from his father, his craft quickly made heads turn and rooms fall silent,” according to Pinnell’s Facebook page.
“But with his departure from home at 18 to venture into the unknown with only his music, this young man soon found himself surrounded by the demons of the world he used to try and sing away. Jeremy will not speak of them — only sing,” the page says.
Whether accompanied by a honkey-tonk sound or authentic country instrumentation, Pinnell’s silky-smooth voice turns salty and gruff with emotion as he sings about drug addiction or failed relationships.
Pinnell’s tour began in late July and finishes mid-August with shows in Fort Collins and Kansas City, Missouri.
While Pinnell “has returned to his humble beginnings and is living an honest life, his experiences must be heard to be believed. They are real, and most importantly, never forgotten.”
