“If Jim Morrison and Gil- Scott Heron were able to have a son, his name would be Carl Hancock Rux. Part preacherman, part poet, Rux infuses his lyrics, delivered in spoken word format–with offbeat statements and a psychedelic sound; an experimental mix of rock, drum n’ bass, soul music, jazz, hip-hop, and funk…” – Time Out New York

The multitalented, infinitely forward-slashed wunderkind (and the first artist to ever perform at Joe’s Pub) Carl Hancock Rux returns home to celebrate the release of his fourth studio album, Homeostasis, a soul infused jazz-scape of incredibly layered, textured songs set to his gripping oral artistry—a sensual slinking of Billie Holiday meets William S. Burroughs adding Brecht and Weill to its lyricism. Described by some critics as the male heir to the throne of Nina Simone, with a style closer to John Lee Hooker and Bill Withers, Rux’s rhythm-laden sounds are equally informed by jazz, blues, and gospel. Homeostasis is a paean to the ultimate need for “stillness” in an often all too jittery world. For this performance, Rux will be joined by Vernon Reid, Gerald Clayton, James Brandon Lewis, Kimberly Nichole and other special guests.
