Country music artist Jerrod Niemann will perform at The Coach House on Wednesday, October 23, as part of a nationwide tour to showcase his sophomore album, Free the Music. Niemann, who studied music theory and production in college, is the sort of songwriter who is willing to test convention. While still undoubtedly country, some of his songs incorporate brass instruments and includes nuances of rock and reggae. “This is my interpretation of how I feel about country right now,” Niemann said in his artist’s bio statement.
Niemann’s version of country music is a combination of the old and the new, a mix of traditional fiddles and horns with the unique sound of the pedal steel guitar.
“The pedal steel guitar has come to define country music, but there was years and years of country being made before that instrument was even invented. Horns have been in country going back to the 1920s, and fiddles and other string instruments date back even further. I took all those things and put them on Free The Music,” Niemann said.
Ry Bradley and 2nd Hand Smoke will open for Niemann. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased, along with dinner reservations, by visiting www.thecoachhouse.com or by calling 949.496.8930. The Coach House is located at 33157 Camino Capistrano in San Juan Capistrano.
