Josefina – 7:00p
Josefina is a singer-songwriter based in Chicago, originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She has traveled to and lived in places all over the world, from Paris to Beijing, and plenty of these experiences have made their way into her lyrics. Her lush vocal stylings pair with alt-country production chock full of piano, B-Bender, Pedal Steel, and 12-string that would have found an easy home on Asylum Records circa 1970s. But this isn’t a throwback to Joni or Emmylou. This is a modern girl making modern music with a little twang and an infectious lightness of being.
