w/ Special Guest Mimi Gilbert
It’s rare for an artist to bridge the divide between critical acclaim and dedicated fan engagement. Chris Pureka is a Portland-based singer-songwriter whose body of work has resonated deeply with these seemingly disparate milieus. Their music has straddled the folk, americana and indie rock genres over the course of their 20 year career, and over that time, their bold vulnerability in processing the intimacies of life in song has struck a chord with those listeners who crave authenticity and depth.
Chris’s elegant emotionality as a vocalist and their flair as a lyricist have garnered them favorable comparisons to Chan Marshall, Bruce Springsteen, and Patty Griffin. Over many years of touring on both sides of the Atlantic, they have shared the stage with such diverse and esteemed artists as The Lumineers, Gregory Alan Isakov, The Cowboy Junkies, Haley Heynderickx, and Ani DiFranco. They have had their songs featured on such television shows as Brothers and Sisters, Covert Affairs and Shameless and well as a song featured in the Sundance featured indie film, The Royal Road. Along the way, Chris has remained truly independent, selling nearly 50,000 albums through their own label, Sad Rabbit Records.
Mimi Gilbert was born and raised in California, where they first began singing and performing in public. At the age of 15, Mimi bought their first battery-powered amp and took to the streets of American cities. There they learned the art of story-telling, the impact of vulnerability, and the power of voice.
During their many years since touring on the road, Gilbert has worked honing their craft and recording songs. A self-proclaimed private person, Mimi has spent a long time keeping much in hiding; her life, her sexuality, their past. Their most recent songs shatter the walls of concealment they worked so hard to build.
Mimi is now based between Melbourne, Australia and Los Angeles. They just got off the road in the USA and Australia opening some shows for Australia’s beloved Julia Jacklin. Following their 2020 Double J Feature album ‘Grew Inside the Water’ was named by NME as one of their ‘Top 10 album picks for October’ and FBi Radio’s album of the week.
“…the full package: incredible songwriting, amazing performance, perfect production. Essential listening for fans of Laura Marling." — Double J
