Story and a Song (June 2017)

Our second monthly Story and a Song Event went great! Thanks to Brickshore Media, The Country, all of the artists pictured above, and the fans that came out (or tuned in online) for your support! We look forward to the next one in July!

Singer songwriter Sean Ryan from California kicked off the night with his folk style of music. He played material from his new album “Finer Things” and shared his story with us. Sean tells us onstage that he hopes to touch people with his soulful lyrics about life’s ups and downs.

At thirteen years old singer songwriter Taylor Gayle is already turning heads. I have never seen a bar full of adults quiet down so fast. She wowed everyone as she performed a few brand new originals including one called “Puppet Strings”. In our interview onstage Taylor tells me that she feels motivated by the rave reviews people are giving her, comparing her to Taylor Swift and expecting her to do great things. She hopes to make others smile with her music.

Storyteller Robert Biehn from California City, California provided a unique twist as he painted a picture of heartbreak beautifully through a narrative fueled performance. His songs are usually tied into the novels or short stories he writes, as was the case tonight. In our interview Robert shares that he hopes to help and encourage people through his writing.

Country duo Endless Summer closed the night with a bang. They performed their single “Amen For Women”, two new unreleased songs, and one of their favorite covers “When You Say Nothing At All” by friend Paul Overstreet. In our interview Bob and Clint tell me they hope to keep cranking out new material we’ll enjoy. Twenty years later and the songs and harmonies still sound great.

When asked about difficulties they face rebranding themselves Bob tells us it’s all about consistency in this town. “Every day is a good day.” he believes. They have been busy working on new music with Wrensong. Still no release date as they are taking the time to hone their sound and make things right. They hope to be able to keep doing music for as long as possible, and if people love it that’s a bonus. “We’re so privileged to be able to be paid a little bit of money everyday to get up and make music.” Clint shares.
