JT Nero and Allison Russell “blissed out”

Allison Russell and JT Nero. Photo by Richard AmerySunday is a good day to be “blissed out,” at least that’s what Chicago soul/ pop/ blues singer told a respectable and laid back audience at the Geomatic Attic.

“We’re pretty blissed out now,” Nero deadpanned in between songs in his first set.

He and Po’ Girl’s Allison Russell played an intimate set of mellow pop/ folk music with a lot of soulful elements.

 The first set included a few songs from Nero’s new solo CD “Mountains/Forest,” on which Russell also appears. There were also a few Po’ Girl songs, which  Nero said was his favourite, several from JT Nero’s band, JT And the Clouds’ latest CD “Caledonia,” and a lot of dry humour from Nero.

Russell added gorgeous vocal harmonies as well as some banjo picking, a little clarinet and even some ukulele.

It was an entertaining, well played show thanks to the easygoing, joke cracking duo, their mutual respect and admiration for each others’ music and excellent musicianship shining through.
