This Wednesday, on what Christopher Worth aptly dubs “Thanksgiving Eve”, a show of gratitude and community love will be presented at the Doug Fir lounge. WORTH shares the stage with long-time musical friends Fox and Bones and Moorea Masa & The Mood. Three groups, who all have been outspoken about self-truth, community, and a positive spirit of unity – join together for an evening of celebration and encouragement. This is not JUST your typical feel-good show, however. These artists are urging us to “come together”…a familiar artist’s plea throughout the decades. There will also be dancing, laughter, and lots of hugs!
The 11/22 show will celebrate the release of WORTH’s third album (special version) in a series. Pardon Me is a consistent look at what happens internally as we go through life, but also an encouragement to examine and question what ideas we have held on to out of habit or blind acceptance. WORTH asks us, in this third album, to think about the concept of “Glory”. As he completes the next version of the album, Worth will incorporate fan, family and friends’ ideas into the songs. It’s an approach I haven’t experienced before – where an artist accepts and incorporates, without judgment, others’ ideas as “worthy” of participation. .
The interview below was an emotional one for me. Worth has a way of speaking that encourages an open and honest conversation – we can hear this tone in the music of Pardon Me as well. Having released “Glory” from the album as a video single, Worth also shared a very touching acoustic version with us live in the studio.
Passion flows throughout WORTH’s music – the instrumentals on Pardon Me are light and airy with flowing vocals that gently express relevant and purposeful lyrics. Check out the “Glory” video, listen to the live version, and then experience it out in person at the 11/22 album release show. You can also find WORTH, Moorea Masa, and Fox and Bones music online. This show will be more than music and dancing – prepare to have your heart softened a little! We’d love to see you there.
