Jace Everett Does Baton Rouge’s Fest for All

Jace Everett, writer/performer of True Blood’s theme song, Bad Things, appeared at Baton Rouge’s annual Fest for All on April 30, sponsored by the Baton Rouge Arts Council. Lisafemmeacadienne had a chance to attend the concert, and to ask Jace a few questions about his upcoming album and tour.

Jace brought his wife, Stephany Delray, who played guitar and did back-up vocals; Dan Cohen played electric guitar; and Derek Mixon, drums. The acoustics were excellent, and the audience seemed to really enjoy the music, dancing while they played. It threatened to rain during the concert, which kept the temperatures in the 70′s. I was able to sit up by the elevated stage, in front of the good-size crowd of festival goers.



Jace was in full humor, using the French pronunciation of “Baton Rouge” repeatedly (we pronounce it “batten rooj” here.) A drunk lady decided to bother the band during the concert, but he handled it with his usual wit and charm. He played for an hour and a half non-stop, doing a selection of his songs and a few “cover” songs.

As we posted on an earlier article on The Vault, Jace’s next album will be released in download form on ITunes, Amazon.com, and www.jaceeverett.com. It will have 11 songs; no release date has been set yet. He will be heading for Holland and the UK at the end of May. Jace also told me that he will be heading to Australia; you heard it here first!

Jace always continues to amaze me with his charm, wit, and intelligence. A Parisian was speaking with him after the concert while buying a CD, and Jace was conversing in French with a pretty decent accent. Pas mal, cher, pas mal du tout!

If you get a chance to catch Jace in concert, it will be time well spent. His songs, which reflect his life experiences, are worth a listen. His melodies are diverse, playful, and philosophical; there’s something for everyone!
