There's nothing jammy or crunchy about this Boulder, Colo., product. His astonishingly pretty This Empty Northern Hemisphere (self-released in May) is an elliptical, Dust Bowl-era spellbinder, featuring harmonies and a cover of Leonard Cohen's "One of Us Cannot Be Wrong" by Brandi Carlile, with whom he last visited New Orleans in the spring. Call club for ticket information.
