Saul Conrad: songwriter and ornithologist extraordinaire

Often considered the songwriting capitol of the world, Nashville is a town with arguably deeper roots in the craft than anywhere else in the States. While this provides the local concert circuit with bountiful writers nights and acoustic sets, there is often a cry from the general consensus for a fresh approach. There are only so many ways we can hear the foundations of country and americana in one sitting.

Thus enters Saul Conrad, a Boston-based twenty-something with a quirky disposition, pet parrot and – most importantly – a hell of a way with songwriting. With the opening track of his debut Poison Pockets an alt-country duet loaded with jazz horns and a vulnerable shakiness, Conrad boasts the rough gem sensibility that preludes innovative promise.

Check out Saul Conrad with Katie Schecter this Wednesday, February 27, at Nashville’s National Underground.
