      XPN Welcomes Johnny Irion and Darren Jessee of Ben Folds Five

      Johnny Irion is a rocker in and out of time. There’s something kind of timeless in the way he wrings out the sweetest melodies and deeper passions of both ‘60s Californian rock and Guthrie-era folk.

      Best known for his folk explorations with his wife Sarah Lee Guthrie ,Irion has earned a reputation as one of the most exciting artists across the folk-rock spectrum, from his uncannily Young-Nilsson-esque voice to his melodic and lyrical mettle.

      Irion has recently released a solo record, Driving Friend, with members of Dawes, Wilco, Nicki Bluhm, and The Gramblers.

       For someone as soft-spoken as North Carolina-based songwriter Darren Jessee, it might come as a surprise to learn that he has a gold record, a platinum record, and was part of a recent Grammy win.

      Since 2006, he's released four records under the name Hotel Lights, all while working as a drummer for a series of wildly acclaimed acts.. In 2017 he contributed to The War on Drugs' A Deeper Understanding, which won the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. Before any of that, Jessee made his name as a member of the band Ben Folds Five, for which he co-wrote their biggest hit, "Brick."

      Cost: 22.00 to 25.00
