Covenhoven (Courtyard @ 610)

July 23 @ 7:30 pm

Doors: 7 || Show: 7:30 || $15 ADV / $20 DOS

Covenhoven is internationally recognized indie artist Joel Van Horne, a multi-instrumental singer-songwriter whose rich harmonies, reedy baritone and commanding falsetto have found a home with critics and fans since 2013.  He’ll be giving a special solo performance at The Courtyard @ 610.  The appearance is in support of his recent album “IV”, which he co-produced with Ben Wysocki of The Fray.  The album features guest musicians Gregory Alan Isakov, and Luke Mossman (Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats), among many others.  

More about the artist:  Through 4 full length albums (with a 5th on the way) and 2 EPs Covenhoven has forged a signature style; layered acoustic arrangements that roll with momentum into orchestral peaks, accompanied by lyrics that contrast hard-won wisdom with the inherent hope of the natural world—from Big Sur to his native Colorado.  His live performances capture the spirit of his recordings—whether it’s conjuring cascading loops in his solo shows or backed by a full band—Covenhoven’s sound fills the breadth of outdoor spaces, auditoriums and club stages.  

Bandwagon magazine calls Covenhoven’s music “worthy of cathedrals” and the Boulder Daily Camera writes “From well-crafted ballads that ache with bittersweet nostalgia to love songs lush with metaphor, it’s clear Van Horne doesn’t stray from the rawness of letting his feelings guide his art.  Hard truths, glimmers of hope and questions of faith are cradled by guitar strums, piano chords and powerful melodies.”
