Sam Watts, Songs and Stories

Marfa, TX, singer/songwriter Sam Watts will perform an acoustic set of songs and stories inspired by his late grandfather and visual artist Sam Richardson. Watts formed the band Ghosts I’ve Met in Seattle, Washington, along with guitarist Ben Blankenship and cellist Brent Arnold, both formerly of the Seattle band Modest Mouse. Watts and company create songs that are simultaneously devastating and soothing, filled with hand-tinted photographic imagery. In 2010 they released their first collection of songs, an E.P entitled *Payphone Patience*, which featured the drumming of Michael Lerner (The Antlers) and piano work from Darren Jessee (Ben Folds Five).

“Sam Watts is like a Gram Parsons or Jay Farrar — generations removed yet tapped into music's old soul,” says Greg Vandy of KEXP Seattle, “there’s a loneliness that penetrates just right. This is a band to watch. Great things are ahead”.

Sponsored by UB Art Galleries in conjunction with *Sam Richardson: Intimate Landscape* on view at UB Anderson through August 25, 2019.
