Black Box Songwriter Series: Jason Eady at The Grand
Jason Eady performs an intimate concert as part of the Lewisville Grand Theater’s Black Box Songwriter Series on Friday, March 11.
The eighth full-length from singer/songwriter Jason Eady, To The Passage Of Time, first took shape in a frenetic burst of creativity back in the doldrums of quarantine. Over the course of a three-day period last August, the Fort Worth, Texas-based musician wrote more than half of the album, locking himself in his bedroom and emerging only when he felt completely burnt out. “I went in thinking I was going to write just one song—but then the songs kept coming, and I didn’t want to break the spell,” he recalls. “I’d go to sleep with the guitar by the bed, pick it back up when I woke up the next morning, and do it all again. I’d never really experienced anything like that before.”
The Black Box Songwriter Series features singer-songwriters in an intimate, listening room setting. Since its inception in 2015, the series has attracted a variety of celebrated songwriters, such as Gretchen Peters (“Independence Day”), Susan Gibson (“Wide Open Spaces”), Walt Wilkins (“Trains I Missed”), and numerous award-winning troubadours. Both newcomers and veteran songwriters have played the series and given fans a chance to hear incredible songs as well as the stories behind them.
Theater doors open: 7:30 p.m.
The concert begins at 8 p.m.
General Admission Seating: $20. Sales tax and ticket fees are included in the price.
About the Artist:
A near-lifelong songwriter who names Merle Haggard, Guy Clark, and Willie Nelson among his main inspirations, Eady got his start performing in local bars at age 14, showing his natural grasp of everything from soul and R&B to blues and country. After independently releasing his debut album From Underneath the Old in 2005, he expanded his touring radius and continued turning out critically praised work, including 2012’s AM Country Heaven, which debuted in the top 40 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Through the years, Eady has also made his name as an unforgettable live performer, sharing stages with the likes of Sturgill Simpson, Band of Heathens, and Reckless Kelly.
