Jeremy Serwer
Jeremy Serwer

Bio authored by Grammy Nominated Songwriter Holly Figueroa O’Rielly The first thing you hear is the voice. Jeremy Serwer has one of those once in a lifetime voices that make grown men cry. Where blue eyed soul meets edgy Americana (Martin Sexton), where blues meets country (Richard Buckner), where roots meets rock (The Jayhawks), Jeremy stands on the shoulders of these greats in homage to offer his version of the truth.

Not to be confused with a songwriter that bursts onto a scene and then just as quickly disappears, Jeremy has been quietly and consistently making records and touring nationally for over 10 years. Never one to stay too long in one place, he dominates local scenes wherever he lands, whether in collaborative efforts (Rich Man’s Burden, Acoustic Minds, SeaShell Radio), or solo performances and recording.

CDBaby chose Jeremy’s 2010 release “Roads” (produced by Michael Connelly at Empty Sea Studios) as one of their featured recordings. Alex Woodward wrote: “There’s something immediately gripping about Jeremy Serwer’s voice; it’s got just the right amount of gravel to complement his soulful timbre, or the female vocals who accompany him on several tracks…Album highlights include the haunting soul of “Dirty Entity” and the lovely “Bare Witness” which recalls Elliott Smith’s gorgeous melancholy. It’s really compelling, heartfelt music.”

The Chris Klimecky Band

The completion of Chris’s 5th solo album “This Journey” motivated the desire to put a band together that would represent those songs properly in a live setting. After kicking off at The Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle for the CD release party, the band has settled into a regular routine of shows and working on new material as a quintet. This high energy performance (electric or acoustic) by skilled and experienced musicians is filled with fun and musical passion! The Chris Klimecky Band is:

Chris Klimecky – guitar, vocals
Art Bromage – guitar
Kevin Jahne – bass
Rob Pearsall – drums
Nicole Page – vocals

Poetry Open Mic
Poetry Open Mic

SoulFood Poetry Night is curated by Michael Dylan Welch and Tanya McDonald, and has been running since July of 2006. We ask one featured reader to select someone else to read with them. This process echoes the sense of community and connection that is central to SoulFood Books, brings in new voices, and helps to create harmony or contrast in our reading series. Featured readers start shortly after 7:00 p.m. After we have a break to enjoy the bookstore, its art gallery, and especially its café, we have an open-mic reading where we invite you to share your poetry. Our featured readers are mostly from the greater Seattle area, but we welcome poets from farther afield as well. More info:
