Tom Maxwell, Randy Dean Whitt

When: Wed., Aug. 29, 8 p.m. 2012

Between Randy Dean Whitt and Tom Maxwell's collected ouevres, there aren't too many crayons left in the box. While Whitt is typically twangy, he extends from gentle, cello-aided Laurel Canyon folk to jangle pop. His crisp baritone's comfortable in the upper ranges, too, while the music luxuriates in the roots end of the singer-songwriter spectrum on his new album, The Outsider. Former Squirrel Nut Zipper Maxwell's obviously gifted at giving jazzy mid-century roots a modern patina, but his new Kingdom Come showcases broad tastes. The record's dark subject matter provides grist for powerful songs with emotional payload. —Chris Parker
