Five Eight is a four piece rock band from Athens, GA, though sometimes they are a three piece and sometimes as many as five people on-stage. It varies with the weather and people’s medications. Currently, the band is recording a new album, tentatively entitled Songs for Saint Jude. (Saint Jude is the patron saint of lost causes and also figures prominently in the prayers and iconography of Dunn’s hometown of New Orleans.) They are working with ace young producer Richard Salino and recording to tape.
Adam Klein is a singer/songwriter, troubadour, and world traveler playing Americana and rustic country folk music out of Athens, Georgia. With five albums under his belt, Klein now performs either solo, duo, or with his band, Adam Klein & The Wild Fires. Formed in summer 2011 with local ace musicians Steve Abercrombie (bass), Chris Cason (electric guitar) and Bronson Tew (drums), the band’s first album together, Sky Blue DeVille, was recently released in April 2013.
Tawny Ellis has long used music to glimpse a sense of connection with others, and to “unlock and alleviate the many mysteries of life.” Now, with a sweetly sublime voice that’s limitless in its capturing of feeling, Ellis taps into her uncommon intuition as a vocalist to craft songs near-magical in their power to enchant and uplift her listeners. Mining influences as varied as Patsy Cline, David Bowie, Joni Mitchell, and Willie Nelson, the Los Angeles-based songstress channels that dynamic into an intricately textured blend of folk, rock, and alt-country that’s intense and masterful but irresistibly intimate.
