Colby Sirbaugh Artist Reception

Colby Sirbaugh Artist Reception

Come join Waldo's and Co for May First Friday!

Featured artist: Colby Sirbaugh

Reception from 6-8 PM
Community Dinner at 7:00
Suggested Donation for dinner is $5
As always food is first come first serve and when it's gone it's gone.

Biography:

Colby Sirbaugh is a writer and visual artist based in Maryland. His focus is collage and poetry with foundations in drawing and photography. His work began to take form while researching sexuality, art vs. pornography, politics and censorship for the International Baccalaureate Art program. The body of work you can see today exists because of the inspiration he found during his time working for The University of Tennessee Knoxville’s Ewing Gallery of Art & Architecture in which they featured work by Richard Meier and selections from the International Collage Center. His work has been featured in The University of Tennessee Knoxville’s campus Literary Arts Publication, Phoenix and has been on exhibit courtesy of SHE/THEY at Area 31 in Frederick, Maryland.

Statement:


"I believe one writes because one has to create a world in which one can live. I could not live in any of the worlds offered to me... I had to create a world of my own, like a climate, a country, an atmosphere in which I could breathe, reign & re-create myself—". I began to fully understand my work and what it means to me from the first moment I read this Anais Nïn quote. Art has always been a way for me to understand myself. I create so that I don't suffocate. I create so that I don't destroy—so that I am.

First and foremost, my work is for myself. Really, I just need somewhere to put my thoughts and feelings—somewhere less crowded than my mind. I use selective imagery to evoke thoughts of love, loss and identity because I want people to relate to my work—to find themselves or get lost in it completely. We all face some levels of physical, sexual and emotional violence, but we have varying degrees of privilege. To be policed is to be politicized. Artists are politicians, there's almost no choice in the matter. The art becomes political because it is a reaction to the world I live in and how that makes me feel. My work, in and of itself, is activism. I believe that applies to every
marginalized artist even if that's not our intention. To exist in a world where you find yourself unwanted, unaccepted, invalidated—in a world that tells you no, existence is resistance. The more I live, the more I create, the closer I get to my truth, the closer I get to self-actualization. My work is a constant attempt to make sense of life and a testament to my own.

Clint Roberts and TBA

Clint Roberts and TBA

Clint was raised in Brevard, North Carolina, a small Appalachian town southwest of Asheville by the Pisgah Forest. Music-making started as more of an emotional outlet than any desire for a career path. High school friend Barrett Davis taught Clint the basics of several different stringed instruments and co-wrote some of Clint’s first songs with him. Inspired by the rugged and rootsy sounds of early Avett Brothers records, Clint was writing songs by himself soon, refining his personal style with influence from Jason Isbell, The Wood Brothers, and Sturgill Simpson.

Christmas Show!!

With Great Live music from Joy Ike the Waldo’s Holiday Spectacle Band, and more! there will also be presents for everyone who walks in and there will definitely be a photo time with Waldo’s own Mutant Santa and maybe we will get him/them/her to arm wrestle some folks too! $10 suggested donation at the door, the fuzzy seasonal feeling of joy is free!

Check out the Bio and music of this incredible act!

www.joyike.com
www.waldosandco.com
WATCH: www.facebook.com/joyikemusic/videos/2484390178239551

Polished and precise, yet buoyed with an airy grace, Joy Ike paints with a broad palette that defies easy categorization. Born to Nigerian immigrants, the singer/songwriter’s music, voice, and writing have drawn comparisons to female musicians such as Nina Simone, Laura Nyro, and Regina Spektor. But her percussive piano-playing and soaring vocals give homage to her African upbringing.

Leaving her career as a publicist in 2008, Joy has spent the last 10 years playing thousands of shows across the country. A write-up on NPR's All Things Considered says "The depth of subjects she tackles in her poetic lyrics are perfectly complemented by a unique blend of neo-soul, with just the right dash of pop...a truly compelling act to watch in person, with the ability to create an intimate setting in locations big and small." 

Ike is currently on tour in support of her new album Bigger Than Your Box. Written over a four-year period that included a relocation from the comparatively small Pittsburgh to the gritty, thrumming metropolis of Philadelphia, the record is joyously defiant, standing proud and wrapped in blasts of exotic color. It dares us to believe in ourselves, to knock down the walls of fear and doubt we build around ourselves. “This is an open-armed invitation to dive head first into the unseen”, says Ike. Bigger Than Your Box boldly explores what Ike often refers to as divine discontentment; the restless middle ground between what is and what ought to be. “The spiritual mystery of life and the ever-present Spirit of God that embraces us in our most helpless state.”

Matt Wheeler & Vintage Heart / Three Strands

Matt Wheeler & Vintage Heart / Three Strands

$10 Suggested Donation.

MATT WHEELER & VINTAGE HEART
A troubadour, a poet with a guitar, a stage banter-conversationalist - all terms that describe Matt Wheeler's music & performance style well. Matt’s songwriting paints pictures with words, often drawing inspiration from classic works of literature or simply spinning new original stories in song. Lyrics & dynamics play a key role, as each song really means something, and each one is delivered with an honesty that is compelling. 


When playing solo, Matt draws audiences in with engaging stories and interaction, while shining the spotlight on the lyrical strength of his songs. When joined by his band Vintage Heart, the poignant lyrics meet expressive strings and driving percussion to make orchestral folk songs that rewards repeated listens. The result is a pleasing sound that recalls wordsmiths like Denison Witmer, Iron & Wine, and James Taylor.

“Warm sound & heartfelt lyrics. If you are a fan of Josh Ritter give a listen to Matt!” 
- Helen Leicht, WXPN Philadelphia

"Matt really has a way with words. He puts poetry to music really rather than simply writing songs. Very beautiful writing." 
- Red Line Roots, Boston

The Minks w/ Taylor Beard

THE MINKS ARE A BLUESY, PSYCHEDELIC EXPLOSION FROM NASHVILLE, TN.

In 2015 on a search for creative community, Nikki Barber started the band based on the idea that "if you don't create, you'll combust". The rest of the cast is revolving with talented members of the local music scene. Just like a rock and roll circus, you never know what you're going to get. Inspired by the old days - Warhol's Factory, Townshend's windmills, Dylan's poetic phrases - the band tries to blend a sliver of those remarkable times into today's world. They aren't afraid to sit back in the groove and let the musical magic take over your mind. They've been called a southern Velvet Underground, with gritty, no-nonsense riffs and twangy melodies.

Timbre with Homestead Collective

Timbre with Homestead Collective

Check out our Facebook Event for more info.

Recently featured on Jack White's album, "Lazaretto", Nashville based harpist and songwriter Timbre has been enchanting audiences throughout the US and Europe in growing numbers with her unique brand of harp-fronted chamber-folk. Her career has caught the attention of the music world, and has led to her recording and collaborating with rock legends Jack White, Tom Jones, Ricky Skaggs, and rock bands such as mewithoutYou, O'Brother, Brooke Waggoner, and The Chariot. The pairing of Timbre's classically trained voice and harp skills with the dynamic sounds of her talented backing band have entranced crowd after crowd, often bringing complete stillness to crowded bars and festivals, silencing audiences of thousands. With her creative and innovative bandmates Chris Leidhecker (drums) and Camille Faulkner (violin), Timbre creates lush soundscapes that pull in listeners of every background. Sometimes haunting, sometimes driving, sometimes unabashedly joyful, Timbre is a musical experience that is completely unique and compelling, reminding listeners that music can move us like nothing else can.

Hailed by earmilk.com as “a gorgeous tapestry of audible poetry”, Timbre’s newest album Sun & Moon paints vividly with the light, the joy, the passion of modern music, and the darkness, depth, and richness of classical music, and shows that together, they can communicate beauty in greater depths than either can alone. Timbre seeks to draw listeners into both worlds, learning and experiencing the beauty of both, hearing their unique languages, until a new dialect is formed.


Homestead Collective is Caitlyn Deviney + Ben Morris, an indie-folk duo currently based just outside Philadelphia. Their influences include Nickel Creek, Billie Marten, Josh Garrels, and Drew Holcomb. Memorable melodies and intricate instrumentation combined with haunting, honest lyrics - they write stories in songs that we all want to tell.
