Beau James & Kiely Connell (Duo)

Beau James and Kiely Connell bring a little Nashville Songwriting to Greensboro for a night a Little Brother Brewing. Free show, 7-9PM.

Beau James is a singer-songwriter based in Greensboro, North Carolina. With a distinctively soulful and relatable voice, Beau ha But Beau James hasn’t stopped there. He’s released two albums (“Indigo Road” with Awake Studios and “Landmarks” with Randm Records), and has been steadily releasing singles as his solo act and his band Chuck Mountain. Beau can also be found working with Our State Magazine and Songfinch when he’s not out playing shows and festivals around North Carolina. “Relating to listeners is what drives James as an artist. A modern troubadour, his dream come true is a life of wandering, of trading notes on life’s struggles and successes through stories that are just as real to him as they are to his audience. “Humans deserve to be in contact with each other,” James says simply. “I make music that I relate to, and hopefully people will relate to it, too.”” —Meghan Roos, 2015

Kiely Connell is a Nashville Tennessee transplant with rustbelt roots. Hailing from Hammond, Indiana just four houses down from the Illinois state line, Kiely draws inspiration from the hardworking people of her native Midwest community. As one of her peers put it: “Kiely’s songs walk a tightrope, planting each step equally with both the grace at the heart of folk music, and the steadfast confidence of an experienced rock and roll soul". Kiely's powerful four-octave range will take you on a journey that transcends the ordinary. In a time when most country and Americana artists are forging a similar path, Kiely takes fans on a different journey to unknown places—sonically, and emotionally. Her voice merges gritty blues with an ethereal upper register, leaving audiences comparing her to the likes of Patsy Cline and Joni Mitchell. Kiely's incomparable voice, and her poetic storytelling truly make her an Americana artist to watch.
