506 Sessions - Genevieve Heyward, Cancelled
CANCELLED!

October Series Sponsored by Horicon Bank!

The 506 Sessions concert series offers the most exclusive audience we've ever had - only 30 people! Setup for these shows include cocktail style seating (and plenty of distance). Come experience the historic Thrasher in a whole new way...
 
Adept at both guitar and piano, Genevieve writes the songs she sings, songs firmly rooted in the contemporary, with faint hints of tendrils running deep toward the influence of old footsteps. She’s opened for Grammy winners, and shared the stage with national touring acts and performers who have written songs for some of the biggest names in music. A fixture of local café open mics, Genevieve cut her teeth performing, playing in front of both small handfuls and crowds of thousands. She’s as comfortable with Tin Pan Alley as she is today’s teen pop, and tells you with a voice built to bewilder – equal parts soft and smoky, and smooth as fresh Wisconsin butter. It’s a warm and natural sound, absent of pretension and imbued with an honesty that affirms the beneficent nature of her music. Genevieve said it best herself – "I want to play music because people seem to like it, and that makes me happy.”

Heyward and her band The North recently came back to the states after doing her first headlining tour in Scandinavia promoting her EP, ‘The River’. A true trans-atlantic collaboration, The River includes Wisconsin-based Norwegian multi-instrumentalist & producer Marcus Trana (Painted Recordings), Guitarist Nick Hoover (Deathfolk) and a handful of guest appearances from both American & Norwegian musicians: Eric McFadden (George Clinton & The P-Funk All-Stars), Greg Roteik (Wifee & the Huzzband), Grammy/Spellemannvinner Kjetil Steensnæs (The Cardigans, Darling West), Thomas Johansson (Cortex, Friends & Neighbors) & Joseph Sheehan (Bascom Hill).

The Ep’s title track "The River” was co-written by Pat MacDonald, whose songwriting credits include collaborations with Cher, Keith Urban, Imogen Heap, Stewart Copeland of The Police and Peter Frampton. 

... Her voice, both sultry and smokey, has shades of Brandi Carlile, Stevie Nicks and Amy Winehouse.”

To keep y'all as safe as possible, things might look a little different when you get here for this show. We appreciate your cooperation in wearing masks while you're here (singing/cheering encouraged...but WAAAYYY safer with a mask on!) We've also spaced out the chairs, added cocktail tables, put hand sanitizer EVERYWHERE and a few other things. Check out all of our Wellness Initiatives here. Thank you for understanding and for your continued support of the Thrasher Opera House!
