A special Songwriter Showcase with three artists all celebrating newly-released albums! From Nashville, TN, Jessica Campbell & Sarah Beth Go will perform together in the round, followed by H.R. Gertner out of Gainesville, FL.
Jessica Campbell has garnered critical acclaim, awards, and plum synch placements for the warm candor of her distinctive roots pop. Her stunning new album, The Anchor & The Sail, traces romantic relationships from balmy beginnings to painfully complex ends with bold emotionality. The album refines the whimsical pop of her previous album but also adds elegantly essential acoustic songs reflective of her intimate live shows.
Sara Beth Go's fourth independent album, Wish It Had, swings from whimsical adolescence to the crooked bitterness of adulthood, from stark reality to shimmery dreams. Love is a serious business, and her self-penned tunes profoundly, yet simply, reflect the gravity of this experience. For Sara Beth, hope walks hand in hand with regret – and the soundtrack of this stroll will have you tapping happy feet, sighing in nostalgia, and bracing the pain all in one twenty-seven minute listen.
One part Hell Raiser and one part Holy Roller, H.R. Gertner writes and performs the kind of songs that cut through you like a shot of grain alcohol on a wild winter’s night – burning up your throat as it goes down, but the feeling is so damn good that you just gotta have another shot. Throwing together a heaping of Earle, a handful of Waits, and a dash of Hank III, H.R. makes a kind of music that makes all them city boys wish they were born in the country, and makes all them country boys wish they were born in the city.
