Joe Purdy’s threadbare folk songs are made for close listening. The Arkansas-raised singer/songwriter makes music reminiscent of Amos Lee or Ray LaMontagne, but he adds a hint of twang in his voice—although not enough to be distracting—and he’s often at his best with nothing more than a guitar, singing barely above a whisper.

With his origins firmly rooted within the foundation of modern reggae music, Stephen “Ragga” Marley is continuing his Grammy-winning solo career with a summer tour. After the success of Marley’s 2011 release Revelation Part I: The Root of Life (Universal/Tuff Gong), he’s finalizing production on Revelation Part II: The Fruit of Life, which is due July 22. Based on the single “Scars on My Feet,” which features Atlantabased rapper Waka Flocka, the album will further explore Marley’s ability to blend elements of reggae, hip-hop and pop, while featuring an impressive roster of collaborators such as Rakim and DJ Khaled. Summer evenings were made to enjoy live reggae music—spend this one with a member of reggae royalty. (AS) The Depot, 400 W. South Temple, 8 p.m., $22 in advance, $27 day of show, DepotSLC.com
