STEVE SILVER w/ Lori Cook and Rebecca Jasso

  • Uncommon Ground (Lakeview) 3800 North Clark Street Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)


An acclaimed advertising copywriter, Steve Silver found additional creative release in the tenor sax, which he played for two decades. But on the heels of a divorce, he realized it was easier to tell stories without a mouthpiece in his face and he has been a prolific singer/songwriter ever since. His first album was released in 2013. He is currently working on his fourth. He has played stages all across the country, but he lives in Evanston, IL.


An Indiana native, Lori Cook moved to Chicago in 2000 and shifted from performing covers to songwriting and performing originals. In recent years, her songs “Little White Boy” and “Gold Rush World” have been selected as finalists in American Songwriter magazine lyrics contests. Lori is currently mixing her new EP and is looking forward to sharing these at live shows prior to their November release. 


Chicago native Rebecca Jasso is a singer/songwriter who playfully writes around the themes of love, loneliness, and fantasy, skillfully weaving her melodies into the harmonic fabric of her fingerstyle guitar playing.

Music has had a strong hold over Rebecca since childhood. At age 10, she took up the guitar, and since the very beginning, sought to write good songs. Despite learning at this young age, it wasn't till after college that she worked up the confidence to take her music to the stage. For years she oscillated between playing solo and in bands, with each wave bringing her closer to chiseling out a style that would be her very own.

A visual artist, Rebecca conjures images with her lyrics to insert you into pictures from her own imagination. From soft, autumnal landscapes, to dark, Narnian scenes, each song is a journey into a new story. Her honest voice and beautiful songs will absolutely charm you.
