Burning Blue Rain w/ Nikki Lemire at KJs
February 11 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Immerse yourself in the blues with Burning Blue Rain, a group of young men exuding an old soul and musical prowess beyond their years. Formed in 2022, the band, featuring Louis Tessman Stanoch (guitars and lead vocals), Oliver Osland (piano, organ, and vocals), Jack Westrop (saxophone), Caleb Carr (bass), and Breckyn Lovvas (drums), intricately crafts a unique musical identity by blending tradition and innovation with inspiration from blues legends. Joining forces with seasoned veterans in the local blues music community as special guests, Burning Blue Rain’s “Sunday Blues” Residency at KJ’s Hideaway is a must-attend for both blues enthusiasts and newcomers.
Nikki Lemire spins her life around her music, making space to perform in multiple fields and genres. Her songwriting features her expressive vocals over layered and hypnotic accompaniment. She dives deep into moving themes surrounding motherhood, love and loss. Employing modern harp techniques, loop and electric pedals, her songs sit somewhere between the old folk bedrock of Joan Baez, the musical innovation of Joni Mitchell, and the influential pop stylings of Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift. Nikki artfully shapes the music to her words, creating a sound that refuses to adhere to any one particular genre, somehow feeling old and new at the same time. Nikki also won second place with her song “Let the Rain Come In” during the Duluth Dylan Fest 2023 Songwriting Competition.
Recently Nikki has been performing as an opener and recording collaborator with various songwriters including Charlie Parr, Matthew French, Taylor James Donskey, Molly Maher, Sarah Morris, Katy Tessman and Maygen & The Birdwatcher. Nikki also performs periodically with David Harland, Molly Maher’s Guilded Quadriga, Katy Tessman and the Turnbuckles, Mae Simpson Music, as well as Doyle Turner & Ted Hajnasiewicz known as the International Treasures.
In addition to her solo work, Nikki is also a band member of:The FoxglovesThe Josh Cleveland Band
