Seventeen years ago Rod Picott dropped his tool belt, picked up an acoustic guitar and released his first album "Tiger Tom Dixon's Blues." The acclaimed debut put a nail in the coffin of his construction career and ignited his second career as a singer-songwriter. With his new album, "Out Past The Wires," that second career reveals itself in full flame.

The sprawling 22-song "Out Past The Wires" ranges from whispery ballads to guitar driven rockers and hits every musical spot between. Like much of Picott's catalog, many of the songs on "Out Past The Wires" center around the lives of working people and the losses, defeats, and small victories that can come hard won in a calloused world. It is here in the ordinary where Picott finds the gold he mines so beautifully on songs such as "Take Home Pay" – one of four songs written with longtime friend and co-writer Slaid Cleaves.

Rochester's Nick Young will be opening the show. Nick writes and performs indie folk with a touch of twang, sounding like a cross between vintage Wilco, Old 97s, and Ryan Adams.

This is a "listening room" style show. Before the performance begins you will be asked to silence your phone, limit conversation and focus 100% on the artist.

Pre-sale tickets available on EventBrite or at the cafe during regular business hours.

More than two decades into her career, singer-songwriter Leigh Nash shines a light on her Texas roots with "The State I'm In," a solo album that plants its feet on both sides of the border.

Nash was raised in the Texas Hill Country, where the radio stations played country music and the small towns rang with mariachi bands. A shy kid, she built up her confidence by learning how to sing. Nash began by impersonating the artists she heard on the FM dial — with particular emphasis on Tanya Tucker and Patsy Cline — before graduating to her own gigs at the age of 13, when she began singing with a country band during a series of weekly shows in New Braunfels. Within a few years, she'd also joined a band called Sixpence None the Richer, which ultimately introduced the pop world to her signature, sparkling vocal and led a successful run that included Top 5 hits like "Kiss Me" and "There She Goes."

Kicking off her acclaimed solo career in 2006, Nash has spent the past decade exploring everything from folk to electronic music. "The State I'm In" marks a return to her days in the Lone Star State, though, with Nash whipping up a combination of Texas twang, Spanish influences, orchestral pop hooks and heartbroken lyrics. In classic country style, she sings about heartache and bad luck in a voice that swoons and sweeps, backed by a band whose members include Emmylou Harris and Wanda Jackson's pianist, Jack White's ace fiddle player and award-winning a cappella group Street Corner Symphony. If "The State I'm In" sounds like a country album, though, it's a wide-ranging, left-of-center, Latin American-tinged country album, with songs that tip their hat to the past while still moving forward toward something new.

This is a "listening room" style show. Before the performance begins you will be asked to silence your phone, limit conversation and focus 100% on the artist.

Much of our seating at 443 is communal—tables and chairs/barstools and sofas/loveseats. You should expect to share a table or sofa with other attendees.

Pre-sale tickets available on EventBrite or at the cafe during regular business hours.

Born and raised in Upstate New York, Stephen Babcock is a songwriter all his own. Born to a family of four children (including a twin brother), Stephen has always used music to create his personal identity. After acquiring a love of songwriting from both his father (an avid piano player) and older brother (an avid music fan), Stephen began writing songs when he was just 13 years old.

After eight years of writing, touring and perfecting his craft, Stephen began recording what would become his first album, "Said & Done". The album became a mixture of youth and promise that helped begin Stephen's career as a singer-songwriter.

Quickly following the release of "Said & Done", Stephen immediately began touring the United States and broadening his musical horizons out on the road. From countless stages across the country to various Nashville writer's rooms, Stephen has left both music fans and industry veterans looking for more. After embracing his Carolina family roots and a love of Americana music, Stephen released the critically acclaimed E.P. "Fiction" in April 2018. Finding his voice (and some new fans along the way), Stephen's unique blend of Americana, southern rock, and indie folk helped establish him as a PASTE Magazine favorite in 2018.

After a decade of work in two propulsive indie rock bands Getaway Driver and Cavaliers, Stephen Douglas Wolfe has found his voice, this time without a band surrounding him.

Until now, Lawrence, Kansas was what he called home. Wolfe's Eastern Kansas hometown brought with it an opportunity to convene an impressive roster of musicians for his first solo album. Cavaliers' "Except for the Birds" (released in 2007) was his chance to assemble players from acts such as The Get Up Kids, Kelpie, Ghosty, and The Roseline to contribute to the record. After a hiatus brought upon partially by a professional move to NYC, recording would resume for Wolfe in his new home in 2015 at Subcat Studios in Syracuse.
