Friday October 11th Detroit’s Americana Folk Duo Escaping Pavement

 

2018 Listening Room Network Artists of the Year

 

“Escaping Pavement’s interwoven voices serve as the radiant heart of their folk tunes. Don’t let their minimalist instrumentation suggest to you that this is soft-coffee house music. Burns and Markovitz bring a lot of energy as they carry forward the torch of modern Americana. The acoustic guitar and mandolin crackle together like a mesmerizing bonfire, and their voices blend together like the azure purple and tawny oranges of a vibrant sunset.” -Jeff Milo, Detroit Free Press

Tuesday October 15th Alan Williams Birdsong at Morning

Alan began his musical journey as a serous pianist who studied at the New England Conservatory of Music. Several shifts in musical identity later, he became a founding member of the folk-rock group Knots and Crosses. A failed record deal led to the demise of the band in 1994, and Alan began a career as a recording engineer and producer later earning a PhD in ethnomusicology from Brown University. Now Alan is a Professor of Music at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell where he also serves as the Music Chair. Alan’s poetic, thoughtful, evocative music goes far beyond the notes learned and the letters earned thru a great musical education. Alan’s music resonates deeply in the hearts of those who listen because life forged it so deeply in his own. Alan will be performing his lyrically rich music acoustically with his soft, warm voice at a memorable lobby concert you do not want to miss.

October 22nd Singer Song Writer Rupert Wates

Rupert Wates was born in London and studied at Oxford University. In the late 1990’s, he signed a publishing deal with Eaton Music and worked for several years as their house songwriter. He moved to Paris in 2001, formed his own quartet and performed regularly in the city’s clubs. He came to the US in fall 2006. Since then he has received more than forty songwriting and performing awards. In 2015-17 alone, 25 of his songs were recorded by other artists. In addition to writing and recording, Wates plays over 120 live shows a year in venues all over America, in Canada and in Europe, and has appeared regularly on radio and TV. He prefers smaller, more intimate spaces, where the audience is up close, where true musicianship counts, and where real emotion can’t be faked.

 

“Man, this guy sings from the heart and then some!…Each song yanks the listener fully into the story and rhythms, not to mention an emotionality imbuing Wates’s plaintively melodic voice. Every cut is a gem, completely absorbing, enthralling, and thus we have a new and unique songwriter-musician already in the front ranks…Trust me, Rupert Wates is an exceedingly rare talent.”  (Mark S. Tucker, FAME)

November 5th Nashville’s My One and Only “Southern-Soul and Curious-Grit”

Emotionally-honest lyrics accompanied by raw vintage guitars and the intimate harmonies that only life-long lovers could discover. My One And Only reaches into the expanses of their hearts to bring up lyrics that will cause you to wonder if they have been reading your diary.

Not only have they toured throughout America, but My One And Only has done two tours in Uganda, Africa, working in conjunction with a ministry there to produce youth conferences that incorporate music concerts, Bible teaching sessions and youth training. Their heart for broken families and orphaned children comes to light in their songwriting and in their between-song stories during live performances.
