Josiah Johnson’s tour is set to stop at Velour Live Music Gallery in Provo this week.

Johnson is known as a founding member of Seattle indie folk band The Head and the Heart.

“We were lucky enough to host The Head and The Heart at Velour the same week they signed to Sub Pop Records and exploded into the national spotlight nine years ago,” Velour owner Corey Fox said in a Facebook post about the show. “Since that time, we have hosted two amazing solo shows by founding member (and great friend of Velour) Josiah Johnson.”

Portland folk band Lenore. and local artist Cesley also will perform at the concert.

The show is set for Thursday at 8 p.m. at Velour Live Music Gallery, 135 N. University Ave., Provo. Tickets are available for $12 online at
