Joe Nolan is at Tractorgrease Cafe on Saturday

Singer-songwriter Joe Nolan has been called an old soul for his expressive voice.

His bio says he delivers “bandaged fragility and raw rage” with songs that are both fervent and intense.

The Six Shooter recording artist will be hitting the local stage at the Tractorgrease Cafe on July 18 at 7 p.m.

Nolan has made it from the shadows of open mic nights to the high-watt real deal scene. His distinctive and intimate vocals stack the deck. From theramine tremors to raw howls, his range of expression goes from one extreme to another.

The strength of his debut record, Goodbye Cinderella (2011), earned a nomination for Canadian Folk Music Award Emerging Artist of the Year, a record deal, and a chance to record in Nashville with some of the most respected names in the business, included Colin Linden, Marco Giovino (Robert Plant, Norah Jones) and John Whynot (Lucinda Williams, Blue Rodeo).

Joe Nolan, Saturday July 18 at 7 p.m. Tickets ($12) are at the Cafe 604-858-3814 or by email tractorgrease@gmail.com.
