Colter Wall

Feb. 21
7 p.m.

Americana, Country, Singer-Songwriter

Small-town Saskatchewan native Colter Wall plays sparse, desolate folk and country songs, his low, slow voice sharing more than a little in common with Johnny Cash. Just 23, Wall’s both an old soul and a wunderkind, two albums into a catalog that’s already shown him to be a beyond-his-years storyteller with a particular flair for murder ballads. In-demand country producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) has handled both of Wall’s albums so far, though his stark songwriting doesn’t ask for much studio trickery—it’s compelling enough by itself. With Wade Sapp.
