Ark Life and The Head and The Heart

Fine Artists: Ark Life, Josiah Johnson & Carleigh Aikins of The Head and The Heart, and Leon Gallery
Project: Live show at Leon Gallery

It was so great to finally get to hear Ark Life! Lindsay Giles is both a member of the band and part owner of Leon Gallery; I’ve heard all about them, met the members at various shows, but never actually been able to hear them live. They did not disappoint! They also had friends Josiah Johnson & Carleigh Aikins of The Head and The Heart at the gallery as well- each group did a set, and then played together. Although, unless you were there for soundcheck, you missed quite the rendition of Hanson’s “Mmmbop” to set mic levels- silly perfection. Josiah Johnson and Jesse Elliot, representing Seattle and Denver respectively, had also made a little Super Bowl wager… which Jesse clearly lost…

It was a lovely night with a wonderful sense of heritage- hard working, folk musicians singing their hearts out in front of the photography of John Denver…
