Ryan James Monroe & Thomas Hodges: Time Travelers
Spellcasting is real, but in order to spellcast, you must first travel through time. Excavating the past, visioning into the future, with feet grounded in the present moment, we will navigate our memories, our lives, and our heartbreak with a musical intensity that will leave you feeling empowered and charged with the intimate knowing that you are not alone.
Celebrating the release of their debut album, TIME TRAVELERS, Ryan James Monroe and Thomas Hodges make their Joe’s Pub debuts! Many of these songs were written between March and June of 2020. Space, isolation, fear, and hope created the recipe for the connective tissue of these songs. Joined by featured vocalist, Gracie Lee Brown, these songs will be heard with a full band for the first time ever. Join us as we travel through time and elevate our shared human experience.
