Goshen, IN – The 2016 Ignition Concert Series at Ignition Music Garage, voted Top Ten Favorite Venue by the Americana Music Association, continues with Aubrie Sellers with special guest Secret Mezzanine July 15.
“I prefer to create friction,” post-country chanteuse Aubrie Sellers offers. “Because if you’re not pushing buttons, you’re just making something pleasant, it’s probably been done before... and it’s not making anyone feel anything.”
In this world of pretty little girls who are seen and not heard and reality stars who are famous for nothing, the 24 year old songwriter ain’t buying in. Laughing, she continues, “I’d rather my music be polarizing than everyone like it, because they rarely do. I think passion is a lot deeper than that. I want to go deeper, and be honest that life isn’t just some party and going out. I mean, don’t people feel anything?”
Not that New City Blues is some kind of morbid, maudlin affair. From the cutlery in the blender indictment of surface beauty “Paper Doll” to the Lone Star drive of “Just To Be With You” and the tumbledown melody of “Sit Here and Cry,” this is a high energy box cutter of emotion: 14 songs marked by the bite and punch of smart girls who know there’s more to life than a cold beer and cut-offs.
“I tell people there’s not a lot of happy songs,” the Texas/Nashville hybrid cautions. “But they’re not unhappy songs, either. It’s life... the way it is, and what’s wrong with that?”
Secret Mezzanine are a rock/alternative duo out of Fort Wayne, IN.
Ignition Music Garage presents Aubrie Sellers with special guest Secret Mezzanine Friday, July 15, 2016 as part of the ongoing Ignition Concert Series. Doors open at 7:00pm and the concert begins at 7:30pm.
Tickets are $20.
The Ignition Concert Series began in 2012 when Steve Martin founded Ignition Music Garage, a music venue that doubles as a record store and broadcasting location for 91.1 FM The Globe.
