The Moonshot Coup and Sassafras proudly present....
A Very Special Evening with Tom Rhodes and Josiah Knight



Before you hear Tom Rhodes’s voice, you feel it - like a left jab to the jaw. Raspy and soulful, like Ray LaMontagne or a young Van Morrison, but with a soaring intensity that recalls Jackson Browne. Your eyes adjust. You regain your bearings. A familiar feeling washes over you: Have I heard this before? Then, a split-second later, comes the power-punch: the words - direct, poetic, timeless, true.

Like a good boxer, Tom Rhodes mastered this one-two technique through years of training. The 36-year-old Oakland, California-based songwriter has spent more than a decade honing his honest, heartfelt brand of Americana, and learning to craft songs whose truth matches his passion as a performer. In that time, he has performed all over the US and Europe, released four albums, and even appeared on season 9 of The Voice in 2015.

Reno based artist, Josiah Knight, has created a niche for himself in the Northern Nevada and California music scene. An amazingly talented songwriter, he weaves honest intriguing human stories with a style of guitar playing that draws the listener into a soundscape that begs to be framed.
