Wayward w/ Grace Blackford & Mikaela Brielle - 8PM | $10

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


Jonathan Edwards, aka Wayward, is an Indie Pop Singer-Songwriter from Minneapolis, MN. With a love for writing and sharing songs, Wayward is touring the US in anticipation of his debut full-length album ""Happiness"". The singer-songwriter began touring in November of 2016, eager to bring a personal, engaging live show to audiences across the Midwest. And those audiences have listened to the first release -- a 3-song EP titled ""Wayward"" -- over 300,000 times online. As a youngster, he grew up in Afton, MN as one of 13 siblings and taught himself guitar by listening to favorites on the radio like ""Teardrops on My Guitar"" and ""Fergalicious"" and watching ""Guitar for Dummies"". He began songwriting after his older sister wrote her first song. Not wanting to be bested by his older sister, sibling rivalry pushed him into writing his first song at age 13.

Grace Blackford is a Chicago-based vocalist, lyricist and composer. The jazz-trained artist allows her knowledge of the genre to influence her work while incorporating elements of other genres such as R&B and pop. The result? Soulful, original music laced with complex emotion and vulnerability. Grace released her first EP, ‘Home,’ in 2018 and her second EP, ‘Alterations,’ (a collaboration project with producer Zeke Akeem) in February 2019. She is currently working on her first full length album.

Mikaela Brielle is a Georgia-raised Chicagoan, new to a solo career but not to music. A lover of love, true words, and a driving rhythm. Always putting things in her own words, she uses her sultry voice to tell a story in familiar songs.
