An evening of great music at the Bryant Lake Bowl, V will be sharing the stage with amazing songwriter & good friend, Joe Stevens & mandolin badass River Glen.
California based singer/songwriter, guitar and banjo-man, Joe Stevens is a third-generation professional musician in a long line of restless westward moving souls. A prolific writer, the muse began whispering at the age of fifteen and Joe has produced some untold hundreds of songs and essays. A dark past and keen insight gives weight to Joe's words, sung in his signature smoky voice and framed by his distinct brand of North American Roots music.
Joe is one third of Coyote Grace, the Alt-Americana trio founded in Seattle's Pike's Place Market. Coyote Grace began as a busking nomadic duo with Ingrid Elizabeth on upright bass, ukulele, and cajon. They were joined by Michael Connolly (owner of Seattle’s Empty Sea Studios) on mandolin, fiddle, dobro, accordion, and more. Coyote Grace has five independently released albums on their own Mile After Mile Music, and have toured extensively with the Indigo Girls, Melissa Ferrick, and Girlyman, and have had the privilege of sharing stages with contemporaries such as Chris Pureka and legends such as Cris Williamson and Lowen and Navarro.
Joe's music rides the edge of the first wave of trans performers who broke through into the public consciousness. From what began as a small scattered handful of artists from a highly marginalized subculture, a movement was born that has inspired and educated folks the world over. From his roots as an awkward kid with a debilitating stutter, through dark years of alcohol and drug addiction, Joe's music touches on themes at once specific and ubiquitous, portraying the human condition distilled — where one person's story is truly everyone's story. Joe performs and gives workshops on songwriting and queer/trans issues at colleges and universities and is a social justice activist for underdogs of all stripes, committed to honoring their vital contributions to the greater collective evolution.
