Join us for an Intimate Evening with Mobile artist, Abe Partridge and Missoula, Montana’s J.W. Teller will be opening the show.
Abe Partridge is one of the most respected songwriters and visual folk artists in Mobile, Alabama. He released his second full-length release, Cotton Fields and Blood For Days, in January 2018 to rave reviews and substantial airplay on Americana radio. It landed Partridge a lengthy feature in The Bitter Southerner and the album was chosen to be one of their top 30 albums of 2018. Ranging from the earthy to the surreal, from the spiritual light to the depths of depression, Partridge draws listeners in with a combination of southern gothic storytelling, dark humor and gripping intensity. Savannah Morning News said, “The singer/songwriter has emerged in the last two years as a tour-de-force of a live act, with the DNA of folk heroes named Townes, Bob and John, combined with his own unique perspective of rock ‘n’ roll and his Southern homeland.” Partridge made his debut at The Bluebird Café in Nashville, July 2018 and brought the house down with his passionate performance. He toured the Netherlands and Belgium November of 2018 and performed at the prestigious 30A Songwriter Festival in Santa Rosa, Florida, in January of 2019 along with performers such as Jason Isbell, Steve Earle, Shawn Mullins and more.
Alan Harrison of THE ROCKING MAGPIE said, “…Partridge sounds like a prodigy of Townes, Guy and Rodney the way his lyrics poetically twist and turn via a grizzled and lived in voice over a jagged acoustic guitar”. Tony Paris of Creative Loafing Atlanta, GA said, “ To call Partridge a singer-songwriter/ guitarist would be a disservice. He’s far more than that. He doesn’t just wear his heart on his sleeve, but rips out the one in his chest, putting what’s pumping through his veins on display.” Jim Halfpenny, producer of the Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival in Austin says, “Abe Partridge is that special kind of singer/songwriter who has the ability to connect with just about any audience. His songwriting is top notch and his stage presence and song delivery are nothing less than stellar. Everyone should keep an eye on Abe Partridge – his future is bright.”
Partridge is currently putting the finishing touches on a new album he is recording with Nashville guitarist/producer Shawn Byrne. His new album is expected to be out by the end of 2019.

“Missoula-by-way-of-Jackson-Miss. singer-songwriter JW Teller has a low, breathy-sweet vocal quality that wraps around your consciousness like a warm wooly blanket, his guitar strumming through acoustic melodies that, on record, he pairs with the lightest of instrumental trimmings; the tube-pitched hum of harmonica, twangy dropping notes of slide guitar, occasional swells of keys, the found-sound creak of a porch door opening.” (New World Brewery, Ybor City)
“His songs reflect this sensibility, along with sometimes painful experiences from living under what was essentially a small-town theocracy.” (Doug Hill, Norman Transcript)
