Since The Alcatraz Kid was released independently in 2006, Jeremy Messersmith has been praised for his elegant and literate songwriting style. While love songs and lullabies are not new territories for the emo/indie genre, Messersmith manages to create a unique sound by combining subtle lyrics and attention to instrumental detail. His latest record, Heart Murmurs, has caught the ear of critics for its vulnerability. “The heart has a lot of secrets, and writing this record was just my way of unlocking them,” said Messersmith.

Thursday 6/12. $10-12, 8pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
