Justice Snow’s continues the March Americana Music Series by welcoming Nate Hancock and the Declaration for a live music performance on Sunday night, March 26th at 9pm. This is a no cover show.
Also performing will be featured guest Jill Cohn.
Cohn’s songs pay homage to artists like Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan and the Counting Crows, with tunes ranging from personal reflections to musical contemplations of social issues, love and spirituality. Raised in a small town in Eastern Washington, Cohn started singing before she started talking, and music has always been an integral part of her journey. A full-time musician since 1999, Cohn has released many critically-acclaimed independent releases, has gained notoriety with her songs placed in popular TV shows and continues making her live shows the centerpiece of her musical endeavors. In addition to being an endorsee of Taylor Guitars and Elixir Strings since 2001, she was a top five finalist in the Lilith Fair Talent Search, Jewel’s Soul City Cafe and has shared the stage with many artists including: Jewel, Dave Matthews, Cheryl Wheeler, and most recently at two Sold out Concerts in California opening for the “Godfather of Americana Music”- David Bromberg. In 2016 Miss Cohn was a featured guest artist on Dakota Midday, Nebraska Public Radio and South Dakota Public Radio’s live concert broadcast, “No Cover”.
Fayetteville, Arkansas’ Nate Hancock and the Declaration are primed to bring soul, blues, funk, hip-hop and rock to Aspen, Colorado.
Steeped in the blues of the Muddy Mississippi, a few hours from where Nate grew up, marinated in traditional soul-gospel of one of his first musical mentors, Joey Williams, guitarist for The Blind Boys Of Alabama and Robert Randolph, and in-fused with the So-Cal funk/ska styling’s of more recent co-conspirator Norwood Fisher of Fishbone/Trulio Disgracious. Throughout this entire interstellar musical trip, Hancock ended up working with Neil Young as the Location Manager on his new “Monsanto Years” album and DVD.
The later inspired Nate to record an entire LP, live to 2”/16 track tape, whilst filming the experience, and adding social activism to the cause.
“When I was twelve years old, my mom got me my first three records for Christmas, one of them was “Americana” by The Offspring, along with “Nevermind” and “Highway to Hell”.. It’s an honor and a privilege to be working with Dave (Jerden), the man who not only produced “Americana”, he also mixed one of my favorite all time jams: “Rock-it” by Herbie Hancock.”
“Jimmy (Sloan) united the vibes of Norwood (Fisher), Edwin Birdsong (“Cola Bottle Baby”, ”Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” Daft Punk/Kany West) and David Palmer (Rod Stewart, ABC, The The) for my first release on Modern Roots: “Country Funk”. This time around, Jimmy and I knew that we had to go above and beyond after we finished working with Neil (Young) on “The Monsanto Years.”
With Dave Jerden at the helm, and Jimmie Wood injected into the sonic stew, Modern Roots Music ups the ante.
This is Nate Hancock’s ode to Mother Earth: from the up and coming full length album NO PLACE QUITE LIKE HOME.
