    up and coming singer song writers

    I'm a huge fan of singer song writer stuff and my latest find I like is a british girl named Laura Marling. If anyone knows of any up and comers that fall into that category let me know.

    Sharon Van Etten. Her first two albums were very stripped-down, just guitar, drums, light bass, and her amazing voice. Sharon Van Etten - One Day (Live on KEXP) - YouTube

    Her third album was produced by The National and is a lot more elaborate, but her distinctive voice is still the centerpiece.

    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    This is Grace Askew. She is a 24 year-old out of Memphis and leads her band the Black Market Goods. My wife and I saw her in Eureka Springs and just Tuesday night in Conway, Arkansas. See sings and writes mostly the blues and does both very well. Btw, she is also beautiful.

    Here she is at Stickyz in Little Rock. Unfortunately, we missed this show.

    Grace Askew plays "Tennessee Got the Best of Me" at Stickyz - YouTube

    Here is another clip. I'm not sure where this one was filmed.

    Jason Myles Goss. Check him out. Very talented and a super nice guy. He actually let me use one of his songs "Twilight Serenade" for a short film that I shot a couple of years ago.

    Grace Askew (see my earlier post) will be in the tri-state area next month. I highly recommend checking her and her band out.

    On March 1, she will she will be performing at the Sun King Brewery in Indianapolis at 8:00.

    On March 2, she will be in Frankfort, Kentucky, at The Dragon Pub at 8:00.

    She will be playing in Memphis February 24, at the Otherlands Coffee Bar if anyone lives in that area.

    If you are in those areas, I hope you go see and hear her.

    Hahaha! Definitely go for the beer if you are in the area, but go to see Grace, also. She is has a great show. She is a talented entertainer. She is also very sweet and sexy...and not afraid to throw back a few herself. She's a super cool performer.

    Here are a couple that I like. Sort of more country influenced I would say, but overall damn good music.

    Austin Lucas has some Ohio ties. His father Bob Lucas lives in Logan County in Zanesfield (near Bellefontaine) and currently runs Mad River Theater works. His dad is also a blue grass musician in his own right. I saw Austin over thanks giving last year in Zanesfield playing along with his sister who I new in high school on banjo. Super nice guy. Dude has a great voice and writes some great songs. Here is a song that is off of his ablum Collection called "Go West". I believe Austin lives in Bloomington, IN.

    Dylan LeBlanc is another that you might like. From Muscle Shoals, Alabama. I saw Dylan open for the Drive By Truckers last spring. He and his band were great live and his album Paupers Field is really enjoyable. This guy also has a great voice and writes some really beautiful songs. His ablum is a little bit more low key than he was live...dude rocked it out live which you can kind of see at the end of the second video.
