Jeff Rymes, a singer-songwriter from Portland, will be in town this week to play an intimate show at one of the coziest places to catch live music in San Antonio.

Rymes, who has self-released a couple solid albums of his own since the dissolution of his band the Lonesome Strangers, makes a moody and jazzy kind of folk/country. Like some of Jerry Jeff Walker’s jazzier efforts, Rymes’ work sets country music in the wider context of standards and timeless pop music, while still bringing that wry and penetrating wit of post-outlaw country songwriting.

With his gravelly but honey-sweet voice, Rymes’ is the type of show you take a sweetheart to see. Local alt-country outfit Ranch \ House will perform after Rymes.

Free, Wed May 16, 7:30pm, Ocho at Hotel Havana, 1015 Navarro St., havanasanantonio.com.
