Julia Mark & Kaiti Jones
Wednesday - July, 25 @ 9:00pm
Kaiti Jones has been making her home in the Boston folk scene since 2010. A native of Portland, Maine, she spent four years in Nashville, falling in love with Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, and Flannery O’Connor and gravitating toward her now beloved ballad form before returning to her northern roots.
Jones’ first two releases were EPs - “Arise Child” in 2009, written and recorded in Nashville, and “Growing Things,” her first Boston release in 2013. For her first full-length album, VOWS, she teamed up with Golden Bear Records (The Well Pennies) in Des Moines, Iowa and released the album at the end of 2017 to a sold-out room at Club Passim in Cambridge.
Jones’ music is Americana soaked in melancholy, with the occasional foot stomper thrown in for good measure. Her voice is simultaneously earthy and ethereal, carrying the listener a few feet off the ground on a cloud of rich, sophisticated melodies while whispering truth and contemplating the human condition through good old-fashioned storytelling.
