True Reckoning Fundraiser Show with Brother Townsend
At the Palindrome on Saturday, May 14 at 7:00pm, local songwriter duo True Reckoning will host a fundraiser to defray expenses from their upcoming Alaska tour. The event features a special appearance by Brother Townsend.
The music of True Reckoning reflects inspiration from living between multiple fantastical worlds. As Port Townsend extends from the Salish Sea on one side to the Olympic Mountains on the other, True Reckoning’s music wanders between lush, hushed confessionals and clean, open sound.
AB McSpadden sings and plays guitar and mandolin. She grew up singing with her family around the piano and hearing legends of her ancestors doing the same. Her songwriting synthesizes her Appalachian roots with elements of dreamy pop. Nathan “Tex” Armstrong is a vocalist, songwriter, guitar and bass guitar player born in Dallas, TX to a nomadic musical family. After spending most of his days in the Southwest and Rocky Mountain states, Tex moved to Port Townsend in the fall of 2020 and the duo formed shortly thereafter when McSpadden and Armstrong met in the prolific Port Townsend singer-songwriter scene.
True Reckoning describes their sound as folk and Pacific Northwestern. Their debut EP, Better Than Ghosts, will be released in May 2022. Find them playing regional shows across the Puget Sound this spring and touring the Alaskan coast in Summer 2022.
