Nellems Trio & Linda Bess on tap at the SpokenWord Cafe: good music meets thoughtful words
The Bryan Nellems Trio will open the show at the Acoustic SpokenWord Cafe on January 28, 2012. The recently formed ensemble features Bryan Nellems on drums, Phil Shurger on lead guitar and Marco Franco on bass. The trio will be doing jazz and soul covers as well as debuting some original work by Nellems and Franco. This up and coming trio is making its mark in the world of music and doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon; so keep your eyes and ears open for what’s next to come for the Bryan Nellems Trio.
Poet Linda Bess will read new and resurrected work that explores identity, reflection, addiction, love, hate, and life. She finds her way through poetry that explores her identity of being female, Asian-Caucasian, and American. She turns to her past to find answers through exploring photographs, quotations, and artistic work of others to create poetry, as well. Her experience of being a recovering alcoholic, having chronic pain, and being bipolar leads her on a path from making grave mistakes to finding new life in sobriety and health. By exploring the paradigms of love and hate in everyday life, her work begs for answers that all of us seek – why too often through suffering we must fight to find light.
