Critics' Picks: Irenka at Hambone's


1 comment


Belgian singer Irenka moved to Nashville to work on her music, but didn’t re-emerge with a twang or rhinestone-studded Stetson. Instead, her unique and captivating mix of genres (jazz, rock, pop, electronic) and languages (French and English) make for a sound that is part Parisian lounge singer, part witch from a misty forest. Never mind her twisted lyrics like, “Yes I plead guilty for the crime / I smashed your brain with a punch line.” Also playing Hambone’s are local singer-songwriter Heather Kropf and Nashville-based folk-Americana singer J. Shields. 8 p.m. 4207 Butler St., Lawrenceville. $7.
