Visionary Artist J GRGRY Announces Groundbreaking Performance at Seattle’s Historic Moore Theatre
Songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist J GRGRY will stream an impressive three hour interactive concert on Amazon’s Twitch platform on March 20, 2021, alongside an all-star line up of supporting players.
Queer artist JGRGRY will return to his hometown of Seattle, Washington’s legendary Moore Theatre, where he will perform a first-of-its-kind, interactive, visually-electrifying live concert, streamed exclusively on Amazon streaming platform Twitch. GRGRY will be accompanied by a slew of music industry all-stars including, drummer Ben Smith (HEART and Roadcase Royale); guitarist CJ Stout (A Pile of Pedals and Vendetta Red); keys, bass and vocalist Emily McVicker (Twitch partner and solo artist); lighting director Tim Semakula (Earth, Wind & Fire, Sheryl Crow and K Flay); and visual artist and projectionist Amy Billharz.
The live-stream event will mark the start of a new direction for J GRGRY, after recently deciding to remove his entire, extensive music catalogue from all popular streaming services. GRGRY has shifted focus to music production streams and performing live on Twitch to retain autonomy, cultivate active, engaged community members, and have unadulterated access to consistent revenue streams.
“Twitch has built-in models to compensate artists in real-time and the connections made with fans and audience members is unparalleled,” says J GRGRY. “Throughout all my years of touring, doing press and radio campaigns, and chasing the illusion of income from streaming royalties - I truly believe Twitch is the foundational piece to creating a larger, healthier middle class for musicians from all walks of life.”
Fans of J GRGRY will be able to access the March 20th concert at no cost by visiting twitch.tv/jgrgry. The live-stream will begin at 3:00 p.m. PST/6:00 p.m. EST sharp, and will feature the following setlist (subject to change):
4. Haunted Horses
5. Rare Poisons
6. Erase The Shore
8. Cave Birds
10. Flowers + Champagne
11. China Creek
12. Open Roads
15. Don't Ever Give Up
