Justin Wells: Online Concert
Thu. December 31st, 2020 | 7:00pm - 8:00pm EST
Join us for a special New Year’s Eve online concert as we welcome Justin Wells to the library stage for Thursday, December 31st at 7pm.
A roots-rock songwriter with a rough-and-tumble rasp of a voice, Justin Wells’ music shines a light on the highs and lows of a life spent on the road.
“Wells has a gift for melody, and for encompassing the ways and means by which so many of us try to make ends meet in his lyrics.” – Rolling Stone
“With stunning insight and honesty, Wells speaks upon the disillusion of dreams, the realization of new ones, the reality of the pitfalls of the rock and roll fantasy, and does so with cutting clarity and poetic facility.” – Saving Country Music
“The songs Wells sang, pulled mostly from his debut solo album Dawn in the Distance, were deceptive. They may have been lighter in tone, but they crackled with a massive spirit, one that wore the trials and triumphs of band life like bloodied badges of honor.” – Kentucky.com
“If [Dawn in the Distance] is not an autobiographical journal, Wells is a damn good actor, because you believe every word. There’s so much real passion and projected emotion, you’d be a cold soul to come away from listening to this without being affected.” – Farce the Music
All events offered by the Laurel County Public Library are free to attend unless otherwise noted in the description above.
