CANCELLED! Join us at the Coffee Gallery Backstage for a one-of-a-kind evening featuring Billboard Top 10 recording artist, Grant Maloy Smith and the innovative mixed-media experience of Run Downhill.

Grant Maloy Smith is a Billboard Top 10 recording artist and MusicRow CountryBreakout charting songwriter of AMERICAN ROOTS music. His latest album, Dust Bowl - American Stories spent 17 weeks on the Billboard charts, including eleven weeks in the Top 10. Grant made his Carnegie Hall appearance in 2018 and has won numerous awards, including two Grammy® certificates. He will be appearing at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center again in 2020, and he is being inducted into the Indie Music Hall of Fame this April, at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. Whether he’s playing with a full band or performing solo, audiences are enthralled by his meaningful songs and his sense of humor. Grant is also an actor, appearing in the feature film Oildale filmed in Bakersfield, California.

He has also played in Europe, including a recent tour in northern Italy and Scotland. Equally at home as a solo artist and with his Nashville band, Grant is an engaging performer who delights audiences with his southern humor and passion. Grant's Website

Run Downhill combines the classic country sounds from 40s, 50s, and 60s with the warm sands of the California Coast. Rooted heavily in folk, rock, jazz, roots, and world music traditions, the group's rugged sound and sophisticated lyrical bent lends a fresh and endearing voice to the Los Angeles independent music community.

A Los Angeles-based ensemble focused on the creation and performance of live-media music/sequential comic works, Run Downhill is both a band and a comic book: each chapter in our story is accompanied by a carefully partnered song. With the group, founder/songwriter/creator T.J. Troy has released 5 albums of original music and 4 accompanying comic books, including The Lord, the Lady, and I, a first-of- its-kind Augmented Reality EP: the revolutionary SPURS #1 motion comic was an official selection at the Seattle Transmedia and Independent Film Festival (STIFF 2015), and SPURS #2.2/Midnight Road Trip has been called “…one of the best albums that you will come across in a very long time.” (Sheila Hopper, Band Blurb).

A truly innovative mixed-media experience, Run Downhill’s live shows stand apart in the contemporary music and comic landscape, creating an immersive, holistic audience experience. Dark, gritty, honest, exquisitely produced and masterfully performed, Run Downhill's music transcends history, and creates a timeless sensibility that is both new and classic at the same time.
