Jordan Kirk

An experimental singer-songwriter from Ohio, Jordan Kirk has been touring in the U.S. since the release of his debut album "Abundant Sunshine" in 2014.
"Abundant Sunshine" is an experimental blend of blues, folk, soul and psychedelia within the singer-songwriter genre. Although self-produced by the artist in a series of bedrooms, and farmhouses, "Abundant Sunshine" is exceptionally accurate at mirroring the feelings elicited by the lyrics with the movements of the music. 

Jordan Kirk's next album "Ragamuffin Parade" will be released June 1, 2017. 

A single, "Crazy", was released from the upcoming album along with a music video which was nominated by the LA Cinema Fest for "Best Music Video".
Upon releasing "Ragamuffin Parade" on June 1, 2017, Jordan will be touring for a full year in the U.S. and Canada.

Joshua Smith Jazz Trio with Aiden Plank & Carmen Castaldi

This performance will feature Joshua on Saxophone joined by two beloved cohorts, Cleveland drumming luminary Carmen Castaldi and stalwart bassist Aiden Plank. 

 

This trio plays a combination of free improvisation, jazz standards, and original compositions. The sound of the group embraces all things melodic, open, and communicative. At times fiercely swinging, at times breathtakingly minimal and microtonal. It is an organic entity. 

 

The Root is a home base, a place of musical pilgrimage for Joshua Smith (Lakewood native now based in California) to return to and perform at. He played some of his first gigs at The Phoenix way back in the mid 1990's and continues to make music within to Root's walls over 20 years later. This will also be Joshua's first performance with his recently replaced 1947 Super Balanced Action Saxophone,  contributed to by many Cleveland supporters after his other horn was stolen early this summer. 

 

Join us for an exciting night of music bringing together all things old and new

He has since gone on to built musical robots, a Smomid Table and several versions of what he calls a Pyramidi. Nick also created software that works with his instruments and allows him to approach music in a totally unique way, from the samples and sounds used, to the way beats are played, to the way loops are recorded and manipulated. Smomid has performed at Lincoln Center in New York, The Knockdown Center, the Newark Museum, the 2017 NYC Electroacoustic Improvisation Summit and been featured on the Discovery Science Network, Guitar World, Create Digital Music, Metal Injection, Bomb magazine, the Arduino Blog, and Popular Noise Magazine among other media outlets.

Artist Reception: Chloe Derethik

Perfectly Imperfect: An exploration of life through the eyes of a 14-year-old girl. 

Freshman at Magnificat High School
Lakewood Resident

“My entire education has been filled with challenges and setbacks.  I must learn things my own way, visualize what I am learning. Photography is a way that I can express myself in a community of artists that don’t judge, I connect with creative people and feel most at home when I can freely express and create”. 

“Lately I have been exploring portraits, non-traditional ways to capture people’s unique beauty.  I have spent the last two summers at Camp Woodward exploring new ways of expressing myself in digital media, film, and most recently photography”. 

I am considering going into the Arts and possibly Public Relations.  Travel is very important to me as you will see through my photography from our 2016 trip to Portugal, Maine’s rustic beauty, and in my own backyard of Cleveland Ohio.   I am inspired by different things at different times. Photography lets me be in the moment.

Book Signing with Barbara Raymond

Book Signing with Barbara Raymond

Hosted by Special Guests Academy Award® Winner Octavia Spencer and Betsie Norris from Adoption Network Cleveland.
Hailed a “Best Book of the Year” by Publishers Weekly, The Baby Thief was written by nonfiction author and Lakewood resident Barbara Raymond. 
   Raymond, author of the award-winning book, says, “I’m excited to bring this important story to light to a wider audience.” The Baby Thief tells the long-buried story of Georgia Tann, who, operating out of Memphis, Tennessee from 1924 to 1950, was widely known as an “angel of adoption.” Tann was, in reality, a child trafficker who stole thousands of children from poor people and sold them to wealthy people across the United States. Her friendship with a political boss ensured that, even after her death, only two robbed parents ever got their children back. Tann’s legacy continues today in the form of sealed birth certificates that often prevent adopted adults from finding their birth families and learning their health histories. Some adoptees have died because of this. Barbara Raymond was the first person to discover the connection between Tann and the secrecy in adoption that has hurt so many Americans. Betsie Norris, Executive Director of Adoption Network Cleveland, spent decades working to change legislation to finally allow access to original birth certificates to adopted people in Ohio. Adoption Network Cleveland is co-sponsoring the event along with Author Barbara Raymond. Octavia Spencer, an Academy Award®-winning actress of The Help and Oscar® nominee for the 2017 movie Hidden Figures, will appear as a special host of Raymond’s book signing. As an actress and a producer, Spencer is drawn to compelling stories and has optioned the rights to the book and will produce a movie based on Georgia Tann and The Baby Thief.

What do you get when you cross a traveling troubadour with a seasoned, bucolic folk artist? Enter Whetherman, the moniker of 32 year-old independent singer-songwriter Nicholas Williams who has artfully bridged the gap between American-made sounds spanning folk, blues, country, soul, and bluegrass with a timeless tinge. In the last decade, Williams has produced eight full length albums, including the highly anticipated 'This Land' releasing June of 2017, earning his keep amongst international independent artists. His music aims at the heart center, with earnest and poetic lyrics that accompany infectiously melodic vocals, alongside effervescent percussive guitar and rolling harmonica, creating a rustic sound that is all his own.

Devin’s music has always been informed most clearly by the music of late 60’s Laurel Canyon, from the folk rock choir of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young and The Mamas and The Papas, to the psychedelic head trip of The Byrds and The Doors and the earth shattering confessions and investigations of Jackson Browne, James Taylor, and Devin’s first musical love, Joni Mitchell.
