3 singer/songwriters featured Wednesday at Off Center stage

The Center for the Arts Discover Series brings singer/songwriters — Cheyenne Marie Mize, Aaron Ross and Adam Arcuragi — to the Off Center Stage Wednesday.

Louisville, Kentucky-based singer/songwriter Cheyenne Marie Mize crafts intelligent, atmospheric, soul-stirring indie folk music in the vein of Alela Diane, Bon Iver, and Cat Power.

Beginning with his debut album, On the Hallelujah Side, Nevada City native Aaron Ross displayed a facility for Americana-based musical forms and rambling lyrics that tended toward double-entendre and allegory.

While much of Ross’ music focuses on the mythical America, with it’s broken dreams, bucolic family moments, and unprecedented military power, there is a sly thread of humor running through his work that’s often underestimated.

According to NPR, Adam Arcuragi is “a Philly soul with the old school power of Van Morrison,” but this folk troubadour grew up listening to his grandparent’s collection of old country records and gospel, which lead to music that grabs parts and pieces from folk, soul, americana and early-century gospel. A hybrid some like to call ‘Death Gospel.’

Catch these artists at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

There is a $10 suggested donation for members of the Center, $12 for non-members. Tickets are available at BriarPatch Co-op, or at the Center’s Box Office in person, by phone at 530-274-8384 ext. 14 or online at http://www.thecenterforthearts.org.
