Kevin Morby embarked on his nomadic journey at age 10 when he first picked up a guitar. Leaving his hometown of Kansas City, Morby journeyed to Brooklyn to play bass for the noise-folk group Woods. After a few years performing with Woods, Morby joined forces with his roommate to form The Babies, a side project that released albums in 2011 (self-titled) and 2012 (Our House on the Hill).

Morby uprooted again in 2013, moving his life to Los Angeles, where he released his solo debut album entitled Harlem River. With much influence from folk artists like Bob Dylan, Morby flushed out his sound while on tour and wrote most of the songs for his second album. The record, ironically titled Still Life, exemplifies his wanderlust with lessons learned from his wayfaring.

On Wednesday, the 27-year-old vagabond will lead the crowd through his journeys inside SF’s Swedish American Hall with Brazilian singer-songwriter Rodrigo Amarante opening the show.
