Laith:Presented by Sou’wester Arts @ The Sou'wester
Nov 13 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Laith:Presented by Sou’wester Arts

Laith, known by some as Hutch, hails from the suburban hurricane of Houston, Texas.  Laith’s music is soaked with memories of Grandma and Grandpa’s bayou house, rides on a red vintage lawn mower packed with cousins, and smoky, music filled bars that a 16 year old has no place being. Which is exactly where Laith found himself as a youngling. Torn between playing music on Sunday’s at church (where he learned to play guitar and sing) and performing in grimy dives, creates a tension in his songwriting that sits somewhere between the altar and the barstool. Ain’t no religion here anymore, just songs. Worth noting: “A song is a room, no matter how happy or sad”. – John H. Laith now resides in the Pacific Northwest lugging used up notebooks and loose scraps of paper scratched with the lyrics of new songs, not yet learned. You can always look forward to hearing something new and something honest when you’re listening to Laith.

His first release under his own name, 2016’s GONERS EP, racked up over 100,000 plays in the year of its release. His newest record, 2019’sfull-length ALL THINGS HUMAN, was featured in Portland’s VORTEX magazine as a best new album of 2019 and saw a nearly sold-out release show at Portland’s famed Doug Fir Lounge.”
