The double grammy nominated vocal supergroup säje (rhymes with “beige”) is the brainchild of vocalist/composers Sara Gazarek, Amanda Taylor, Johnaye Kendrick, and Erin Bentlage. Born out of close friendship and deep admiration, these world-renowned artists, composers, and arrangers have come together to explore, create, and celebrate the music that moves them.

After debuting an inspiring and energized set at the 2020 Jazz Education Network Conference in New Orleans, säje went on to tour multiple jazz festivals and clubs from January to March. During quarantine, säje received their first GRAMMY nomination for their composition “Desert Song” in the Best Arrangement Instruments and Vocals category. Their highly anticipated debut album was released in August of 2023, featuring new original work and compelling covers, highlighting collaborations with artists Jacob Collier, Terri Lyne Carrington, Ambrose Akinmusire, and more.

ECA Special Engagement: Five for Fighting with String Quartet | Friday, April 19, 2024 | $35-$65

PUBLIC TICKET ONSALE: January 19 at 12PM

ECA SUBSCRIPTION PACKAGE HOLDER PRE-SALE: January 17-18

The only way for a story to progress is to turn the page. John Ondrasik — the songwriter and performer known as the platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated, Five For Fighting — knows this well. In the two decades since his first major single, "Superman (It's Not Easy)," hit the stratosphere, the artist has both evolved and come back 'round full circle. Creativity, if nothing else, is paradoxical. 

To date, Five For Fighting has released six studio LPs, including the platinum certified America Town and The Battle for Everything; and the top-10 charting Two Lights, along with an EP and live albums. 

Ondrasik has penned major hits, including the chart-topping "100 Years," "The Riddle," "Chances," "World," and "Easy Tonight," which have earned tens of millions of streams and place him as a top-10 Hot Adult Contemporary artist for the 2000s. The reflective "100 Years" has joined "Superman (It's Not Easy)" as part of the American Songbook and continues to stand the test of time at weddings, birthdays, graduations, memorials, and many a home video. Five For Fighting's music has also been featured in more than 350 films, television shows, and commercials, including the Oscar-winning The Blind SideHawaii Five-O,The Sopranos and the CBS drama, Code Black.

An ECA Special Engagement: The Wallflowers | Wednesday, May 29, 2024 | $55-$95

 

With Special Guests Chairs for Giants

For the past 30 years, The Wallflowers have stood as one of rock’s most dynamic and purposeful bands—a unit dedicated to and continually honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. That signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits like 1996’s Bringing Down the Horse as well as more recent and exploratory fare like 2012’s Glad All Over.  

Even so, in recent years, Jakob Dylan—The Wallflowers’ founding singer, songwriter and guitarist—has repeatedly stepped outside of his band, first with a pair of more acoustic and rootsy records: 2008’s Seeing Things and 2010’s Women + Country, and then with the 2018 film Echo in the Canyon and the accompanying soundtrack, which saw him collaborate with a host of artists classic and contemporary, from Neil Young and Eric Clapton to Beck and Fiona Apple. 

And while it’s been nine long years since we’ve heard from the group with whom he first made his mark, the Wallflowers are silent no more. Dylan always knew they’d return.

“The Wallflowers is much of my life’s work,” he says simply. 

Plus, he adds with a laugh, “It’s pretty hard to get a good band name, so if you have one, keep it.” 

Good band name aside, that life’s work continues with Exit Wounds, the brand-new Wallflowers studio offering. The collection marks the first new Wallflowers material since Glad All Over. And while the wait has been long, the much-anticipated record finds the band’s signature sound—lean, potent and eminently entrancing—intact, even as Dylan surrounds himself with a fresh cast of musicians.
