Doors @ 7 PM
Justin Hylton has toured the nation with his Americana songs of relatable tales of life experiences. Heartbreak, addiction, partying, traveling and having a good time are the substance of his melodic musical, lyrical and vocal writings. Inspired by life, Justin’s lyrical undertones stem from “…seeing life just happen, living in the present and appreciating the beauty that we are surrounded with daily.”. From the stage to the crowd, a real performance is heard. Real words, sung by a real man, with real meaning make for an authentic time shared by both Justin and the crowd.
As a guitarist, Justin’s musical influences started at a young age. “I have been interested in music for most of my life. I played trombone in band until I was 16. At that age I was getting into a lot of trouble and my mom would send me to my Grandfathers. That was where I learned to play the guitar. My grandfather was learning the banjo and we would sit on the porch and pick for days.”. A Georgia native, Justin has lived and traveled the United States. Currently living in “3down” (Marietta), Georgia, being an artist has paved the way for him to express himself, “It helps me stay sane in a sometimes insane world.”.
Justin finds new influences every day by listening to music and getting deep into the lyrics and feelings behind different songs. Justin is always looking for something new and feels the creative undertone of the music he hears. Anyone who can express themselves in their own way is the cornerstone of his influence.
Jordan Igoe is a magnetic, multi-talented and genuine alt-country singer-songwriter based in Charleston, South Carolina. She has been playing music professionally for over ten years as a solo performer and with a rotating lineup of stellar backup musicians. Jordan has shared the stage with ‘The Lone Bellow’, Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent of ‘Shovels & Rope, in addition to touring regionally all over the Southeast. In other words, she has paid her dues and put in the 10,000 hours that according to Malcolm Gladwell is a requirement for being a true professional in your chosen profession. Her classic voice and unique songwriting style construct a sound that she says was predominantly influenced by Patsy Cline, Brandi Carlile, and Loretta Lynn.
Igoe’s debut album was independently released on February 14th, 2014 and received very positive responses from both fans and critics alike. In one review of the album, music critic Ballard Lesemann of Metronome said, “Jordan Igoe’s new solo album How to Love is a genuine thing of beauty that somehow hatched and bloomed from the Space, a tiny studio set up in an unglamourous downtown storage unit. Sometimes the prettiest stuff comes from unexpected places.”
