First Listen: 'Wasteland' by Andrew Bailie

Join us Thursday March 14th (pie day!) for a special First Listen to ‘Wasteland’, the debut album by guitarist Andrew Bailie.

“Andrew Bailie is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. His intricate songs are crafted with raw emotion, fierce guitar work, and an unmistakable, soaring voice.

Drawing elements from a variety of musical styles and traditions, Bailie’s songs are woven from his own hopes, fears and enchantment, tapping into the common human experiences that give us pause, inspire longing, or set us ablaze. After extensive touring across the US and Europe with legendary gospel and funk organist Cory Henry (Aretha Franklin/Snarky Puppy/Kenny Garrett), Bailie relocated from the east coast and returned home to Omaha, NE in order to pursue a new project with jazz great and sensei Dana Murray (Wynton Marsalis/Jimmy Witherspoon/Norah Jones).

A founding member of Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles, Andrew is best known in Omaha for past projects The Jazzwholes and It’s True. Bailie has also worked with platinum recording artist Aloe Blacc, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Mononeon, Gil Goldstein, Louis Cato, Darryl Tookes, members of Snarky Puppy, Lyle Divinsky (The Motet), Paris Monster and has shared the stage with George Clinton, Marcus Miller, Talib Kweli, Lalah Hathaway, Russell Malone and many others.

"Very lovely. Bluesy and atmospheric sensibility. Cinematic and patient, too. Good feel, excellent vocals." — Jim Campilongo, The Little Willies ft. Norah Jones.

“Bailie’s dynamic and captivating songwriting commands audiences’ attention whether he's with his band or playing solo." — Joey Lyons, The Fuss.

Join us Thursday the 14th of March for the debut of ‘Wasteland’. Advance copies of the album will be available to listening party attendees.

Social hour begins at 7pm with listening at 8!

This is a free, all-ages event.
