ABOUT THE EVENT
This free concert will now feature a full set by Brian Jarvis and his trio. Howie Day’s performance has been cancelled – more info below.*
New England singer/songwriter Brian Jarvis entices listeners with a captivating honesty and a voice drawing comparisons to David Gray and Matt Nathanson. For the past 6 years Jarvis has been on the road touring the country supporting several well-known acts within the Singer-Songwriter genre.
2019 marks the triumphant return with his first new EP “Anyone at All”. The 5 song EP features collaborations with some of Connecticut’s finest including the song “I’m Your Man” which was co-written with Stephen Kellogg.
Teaming up with long time drummer and producer Rob Griffith from Bronze Radio Return, Jarvis is set to release his first new collection of songs in the spring of 2019. “The songs as a whole tackle more introspective themes and have been well received on the road, which is very rewarding and exciting.” said Jarvis about the new modern sound.
Spending most of 2017 & 2018 on the road with hit songwriter Howie Day, Jarvis is ready to hit the ground running with long awaited follow up to his debut album “Beautifully Broken” which debuted in the iTunes Rock 100 back when downloads were a thing!
Brian Jarvis has also toured extensively with with Carly Simon-collaborator Brendan James, an supported chart-topping artists Andy Grammar (“Keep Your Head Up”) and Rachel Platten (“Fight Song”).
*A note from Howie Day’s Management: “Management has made the decision to cancel the remaining dates on Howie’s August tour so that he can return home and work on his health – we hope to be able to reschedule the shows when Howie is feeling better and can give 100% to the amazing live shows we have all come to expect from him. Sorry for the inconvenience for both the venues and fans, and we will hopefully see you back on the road soon!”
