SLEEPY GAUCHO w/ Jake Ashey - 8PM | $10

  • Uncommon Ground (Edgewater) 1401 West Devon Avenue Chicago, IL, 60660 United States (map)

Sleepy Gaucho draws a large influence in roots music and songwriting while also exploring the freedom of the studio. His discerning brand of Panamerican influenced folk music floats somewhat aimlessly in a realm of it’s own. Born in Wisconsin while also growing up some time in Argentina, the young multi-instrumentalist’s music can at times be melancholic, at others ethereal, but always agreeable. The seven track debut record Another Time (March 2018), while initially recorded in Madison, WI, was eventually finished after the songwriter happened to find himself drifting around an East London neighborhood for a few months.

"My name is Jake Ashey and I am here to make you laugh. Incessantly. Through music and song and ridiculous humor. Me and my guitar will tug at your heart strings and smash your funny bone with a gigantic hammer. Seriously you're going to laugh a lot. Also I'm a really nice guy."
