Tim Menard with special guests The New Zeitgeist

The New Zeitgeist
Jen Reilly and Eddy Bluma met as solo artists entering the music scene of Chicago in 2009, but might as well have been around since 1929. "Old souls," migrating from desert and sea, the two began collaborating as a folk duo with tempting harmonies and lonesome spirituals. Reilly's country gospel roots and southern swing deeply welcomed the black leather grit of Bluma's rock influences in new intertwining medley. Providing folk-nymph echoes to Bluma's timeless music, Reilly quickly found heightened vocal expression and newfound writing territory. "It's been awhile since I've described a vocalist as having 'a great set of pipes,' but that fits those of Jen Reilly," WXRT's Richard Milne commented of the duo's self-titled 2014 debut release. Their new album, "Myths and Mortals" is quite amazing. Tim's excited to share the evening with this talented couple.
