Ashley Riley‘s latest offering, Through the Thin, showcases her signature delicate-then-soaring vocals and clever storytelling. Riley is able to build an intimacy with the listener, inviting them into the songs and on a journey through the thin with her. The 13-song collection, released in April 2016, finds Riley a bit stronger and wiser than before, her down-to-the-bone vulnerability wrapped up in a cozy, warm blanket. The gritty, rootsy moments that garnered favorable comparisons to Patty Griffin and Stevie Nicks remain, backed by lush instrumentation that incorporates genres such as indie rock and pop into her folk niche.

Aiding topics from ageless experiences to lyrical content riddled in sarcasm, Juliana Wilson’s warm and intimate tone surfaces forcibly through wide echos of ambient backdrops as well as dynamic indie-driven pop. With content unique as it is relatable, Wilson’s visual storytelling sets the scene for any listener by combining universal narratives with conceptual standpoints through every song.

All show tickets are final. No refunds. Lineup subject to change at artists discretion. During shows, we are truly a “LISTENING ROOM” and will expect conversations be kept to a whisper out of respect to the artists on stage. The writers you will listen to are the ones who actually wrote the songs you’ll hear. These aren’t “cover songs” – these are the talented writers who wrote them. The Listening Room reserves the right to ask anyone to move outside or leave during the show if they are being disruptive to others with no refunds given. Tickets are for “dinner and a show” and we will begin seating typically 30 minutes prior to your show time. We will only hold reservations for 15 MINUTES AFTER SHOW TIME. If you are not at the show within 15 minutes of show time, The Listening Room may release your seats to other guests and consider you a no-show. To maximize seating, it is possible you will be seated with another party at the same table (i.e. two couples sat at a table of four). The Listening Room has a $10 food/drink minimum PER PERSON, PER SHOW. Your ticket guarantees you a seat (if you arrive within the time policy stated above), and seats are on a first come, first seated basis to all ticket holders – for seats closer to the stage, please show up early. We may stream our shows online or video portions of our shows. By purchasing ticket you agree that your image or likeness may be shown online during streamed shows or on audio/video recordings. Many other common questions may be answered by viewing our FAQ section on our website – listeningroomcafe.com/frequently-asked-questions/. Thank you, and we look forward to having you at the show!
