Video: JKutchma delivers refreshing set at Oak City 7

Posted by on Tue, Jul 8, 2014 at 12:44 PM

On a recent Thursday in Raleigh City Plaza, Durham's JKutchma led a nine-piece band through a handful of songs, several of which are from the upcoming album tentatively titled Blue Highways. Despite being sandwiched between an act that screeched through a Led Zeppelin cover and the '90s one-hit Fastball, Kutchma and company brought something different to the evening.

The group offered a much more nuanced set than those of the brash acts it shared the stage with, each member of the outfit contributing to the swirling arrangements and melodies. While some of the crowd might not have been completely receptive, the show acted as a fine preview for what Kutchma has in store for his follow-up to last year's Sundown, USA

Check out a pair of clips from the show below.
