Iconic singer, songwriter, guitarist, and Alice In Chains co-founder Jerry Cantrell has announced, “AN EVENING WITH JERRY CANTRELL” presented by Moment House. The stream will be an intimate performance recorded live from Los Angeles this evening.
The sold out performance will include a six song set, storytelling, and a Q&A hosted by renowned and beloved actor/comedian, Jeff Garlin.
The stream will be a ticketed event on Wednesday, December 1, 2021 at 6:00 PM PT/ 9:00 PM ET in the United States. Tickets are $12 pre-order and $15 day of show. Ticket holders will be able to stream the event for 24 hours.
The performance is a selection of songs from Jerry’s recently released LP, Brighten. Many of the musicians featured on the record will perform with Jerry including Tyler Bates [300, John Wick], Greg Puciato [Dillinger Escape Plan], Gil Sharone [Dillinger Escape Plan], George Adrian, Vincent Jones and Michael Rozon.
Brighten has received praise from critics including SPIN who said: ??”…It’s an eclectic record fueled by a mix of acoustic and electric instruments that Cantrell used to extrapolate on themes like doubt, resiliency, and moving on from the past. Needless to say, it’s easily the most upbeat-sounding album in his lengthy discography. That’s just fine by him.”
American Songwriter said, “A masterful collection of nine new songs exhibiting all the different sides of his inimitable songwriting sensibilities—including some new ones—the album constitutes some of Cantrell’s finest output to date.”
Brighten is Jerry’s first project without Alice In Chains in 19 years. Co-produced with film composer Tyler Bates, and Paul Fig [long-time Engineer], the LP got its beginnings just before the pandemic hit. They welcomed a dynamic cast of supporting players including Duff McKagan [Guns N’ Roses, Loaded] on select bass tracks, Greg Puciato contributing to backing vocals and drummers Gil Sharone and Abe Laboriel, Jr. [Paul McCartney]. Joe Barresi [Tool, Queens of the Stone Age] handled the mixing of Brighten.
Jerry has also announced a US tour that will bring him to cities such as New York, LA, Chicago, Boston, Nashville and Vegas among many other cities. See tour dates below.
