Jeremy Pinnell, Northern Kentucky’s son from across the river, is a soft-spoken man, born to an area that is equal parts Southern hospitality, Northern attitude and Midwestern charm. Raised from humble beginnings of singing in church and learning the guitar from his father, his craft quickly made heads turn and rooms fall silent.

Compelling singer/songwriter John Moreland will be performing at Southgate House Revival on Thursday, June 18th in support of his critically acclaimed third solo album, High On Tulsa Heat (released April 21 via Thirty Tigers). The Wall Street Journal featured the album as an exclusive premiere, describing it as “…10 confessional songs laced with guitar grit as Moreland sings heart wrenching lyrics in an earthy voice that sounds worn in beyond his 29 years.” Pitchfork said, “There is plenty of well-worn sentiment and saltiness in his music, but there is also a relatable humanity that makes High on Tulsa Heat worth going back to. Though many of the songs convey images of earthiness and of dirt, there’s a beauty that helps the collection soar above the ground.” Read more
