Dismal Niche Presents: Simon Joyner, The David Nance Group, Nevada Greene; $7

"Omaha has given us the reigning heir to Henry Miller's dark emotional mirror, Townes Van Zandt's three-chord moan, and Lou Reed's warehouse minimalism: his name is Simon Joyner - my favorite poet." — Gillian Welch

Simon Joyner is a renowned American singer-songwriter who first came to prominence during the Lo-Fi movement of the early 90's alongside contemporaries mining similar territory like Will Oldham, the Mountain Goats, and Bill Callahan. Famously championed as a favorite of Beck and the late John Peel, Joyner is often referred to as one of the forefathers of the Omaha music scene and an influence on his friend, Conor Oberst, of Bright Eyes (who he just performed with at Carnegie Hall in November).
Following the mercurial path of heroes like Neil Young and Bob Dylan, Joyner has been releasing literate and challenging albums since the release of his first album, Room Temperature, in 1993. His discography includes twenty-two full-length recordings and numerous singles and guest appearances. A book of his lyrics was released in 2016 under the title "Only Love Can Bring You Peace: Selected Lyrics (1990-2014)." He tours the United States and Europe semi-regularly and is the co-owner of the Grapefruit Records label which operates from offices in Brooklyn, NY and Omaha, NE.
