Natalie Gelman & Kris Gruen

  • Underground Exchange Ojai 1016 West Ojai Avenue Ojai, CA, 93023 United States (map)

Saturday, June 30th will be an evening of pure musical enjoyment with Ojai favorite Natalie Gelman, joined by Kris Gruen. Often compared to Sheryl Crow, Jewel and Joni Mitchell, Natalie’s music is contemporary and timeless. She writes honest, heartfelt songs - responding to current affairs and revealing parts of her inner self with the world. “Not too much about her, but somehow about me & everyone in the audience as well.” 
Kris Gruen writes songs about grownup life infused with a mystic wonder, softening the world’s sharp edges like a glass of exceptionally fine bourbon. Kris grew up steeped in classic records. His Americana influenced new folk is grounded in the tradition of great narrative songwriters like Cat Stevens and Paul Simon and yet Kris’s voice is strikingly current. Kris effortlessly blends sagacious wit and emotional depth.  While often garnering comparisons to contemporaries like The Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, and Andrew Bird, Exclaim! Canada’s Music Authority aptly notes, “Kris Gruen is no mere imitator. He possesses a sound all his own.”
The music begins at 7:30, and there is a suggested donation of $20 at the door, and beverages are also available.
