Greg Laswell

9 p.m. Wednesday, February 18. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

San Diego singer-songwriter Greg Laswell has built a career out of impeccably self-produced evocations — tunes that have made him a go-to soundscaper for Grey's Anatomy, The Hills and True Blood. He's moody enough to resonate with any romantic plot, but not so offensive as to send audiences fast-forwarding their DVRs. Last year's Three Flights from Alto Nido purports to close out a "trilogy of heartbreak and redemption" — not that one needs the back-story to get the point. Laswell has never met a melancholic cup he couldn't sup, an oceanic metaphor he couldn't float across or a Coldplay piano melody he couldn't cop. What Laswell lacks in originality, he makes up for in pure ability, singing listeners through daydreams with a smooth, convivial tenor and finely crafted acoustic pop.
