Emerging from the music-rich earth of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, singer-songwriter John Paul White possesses a singular gift for weaving melody and plainspoken poetics into intricate tales of heartache, resentment, and redemption. The four-time Grammy Award winner and 2018 Grammy-nominee rose to fame as one half of the Americana duo The Civil Wars and has performed alongside the likes of Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Rosanne Cash, and Jason Isbell. His critically acclaimed solo debut, Beulah, and a breakout performance at the Newport Folk Festival last summer reintroduced White to fans as an artist steeped in Southern Gothic style, seamlessly moving between dark country ballads, Southern rock, cinematic string arrangements, and lyric-driven folk. In the cool calm of The Appel Room, listeners will have the space to fully absorb White’s forays into the shadowy corners of human emotion.

“Gorgeous material, by turns heartbreaking and life-affirming.”
– Observer (U.K.) on Beulah
“Tender songs in a dark, mournful beauty...pure and devastating...the kind of music that can give goosebumps, even on a sunny summer day.”
NPR on Newport performance
