Szlachetka Refuge Lounge August 8th 2018

We're very excited to welcome Szlachetka to the Refuge Lounge!
(That's pronounced SLA-HET-KA, by the way.)

Hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the "10 New Artists You Need to Know," Szlachetka began his music career as frontman for the roots-rock band, The Northstar Session, who enjoyed critical acclaim (and an appearance on NBC's 'Parenthood). After a decade of touring, he struck out on his own and released his first solo album, "Waits for a Storm to Find." His newest album was released earlier this year. "Heart of My Hometown" was described by Rolling Stone as "a soundtrack for both the highway and the heartland," and showcases his timeless songwriting abilities. (You should totally check it out!)  

Over the course of his career, Szlachetka has shared the stage with some incredible musicians like Brandi Carlisle, Chris Isaac, Huey Lewis & The News, and John Waite, and continues to collaborate with musicians and songwriters in pursuit of music that pays homage to a simpler past while looking for the common threads that connect us. 

Please help us welcome him to the stage!
