Local singer and songwriter Harlee Case, 21, opens for Seattle-based songstress Pepper Proud at 9 p.m. Friday, July 12, at Caldera Tap House, 31 Water St., Ashland.
Case, who opened last week for an ABBA tribute band on Britt's Table Rock City Stage, plays acoustic guitar and sings with a soulful, Norah Jones-style voice. She compares her original music to that of Colbie Caillat and to Jewel's style in the '90s.
Case's first album, released when she was 18, featured primarily songs about breaking up and the heartbreak that follows, but more recently, her music has taken a positive spin and is more upbeat and "poppy," she says.
The cover to the show at Caldera is $3 to $5. Proud will present music from her newest album, "Riddles & Rhymes," released March 15.
