Podunk Nowhere

October 31 at 5pm
Whaley House Garden Stage

Podunk Nowhere is a poetically lawless boot-brooding duo bred from the illegitimate schools of Ryan Adams, Jeff Tweedy, and Lucinda Williams (just to name a few). As fire starter vocals and thigh trembling emotional appeal batter over drearily beautiful and unusual guitar transitions, they brand the San Diego music scene with a fresh dose of alt-country originality, kicking up dust storms across Southern California stages and beyond.

"Heather Janiga and guitar wielding hubby Johnny J. are a formidable songwriting duo. Her airy voice has an indie vibe, at times hinting at a folky Portishead or P.J. Harvey. Their country songs' sweet vocal arrangements are akin to Lucinda Williams and Wilco."
Derek E. Shaw of the San Diego Troubadour

"Since their fateful meeting years ago, the pair has become one of San Diego's most popular acts on the singer-songwriter circuit."
Bart Mendoza of the Peninsula Beacon

"Podunk Nowhere has such a wonderful sound you could easily, as a critic once wrote of Billie Holiday, listen to them perform the telephone directory."
Jim Trageser of the North County Times
