Exclusive CAA Member Performance
Have you heard who will be performing?
Festival favorite since the start of the 30A Songwriters Festival in 2010 Shawn Mullins will no doubt have another packed house under his spell. Shawn's experiences included an indoctrination into the collaborative creative process by numerous bouts of intensive co-writing, in one instance putting him atop of the country charts via key contribution to the Zac Brown Band's "Toes," marking his third #1 single, following 1999's "Lullaby" and the 2006 Triple A/American chart-topper "Beautiful Wreck." Further co-writing yielded nine of the 11 songs on the new album, which Mullins believes represents the strongest, most expressive writing of his distinguished career.
Another festival favorite since 2010 Amy Ray is the founder of the indie label Daemon Records, one half of the Indigo Girls, and a solo artist in her own right. When Amy founded Daemon in 1990, her mission was to support local musicians, both in putting out their music and teaching them how to sustain their careers. As a beloved Indigo Girl, Ray has long been known for her big muscular heart, as a solo artist though; she has indisputably found her voice.
Gunshot Glitter is a new collaboration of the talented and unique styles of the sister duo Larkin Poe and the sweet vintage voice of Emily Lynch.
Ever since Rebbecca and Megan Lovell were little girls they have been awed by the power of a story well told: from children's books and bedtime yarns to figments and fairy tales. Now as Larkin Poe they are still on the search for stories, and striving to learn how to tell them well. They are on the search for stories of human experience, of love won and love lost, and of the million mundane things that make up everyday life. Larkin Poe recently returned from their 2011 Fall European Tour where they opened for Elvis Costello.
Emily Lynch is a young singer-songwriter hailing from Atlanta, Georgia with more than just a pretty face. She sings with experience, humility, and a sweet vintage voice that Truley sets her apart. Her voice has been compared to that of Allison Krauss, Patty Griffin, and Emmylou Harris. She is a proficient guitarist and songwriter with an undeniable endearing and engaging presence and a heart full of song that captivate her audiences.
Individually these acts are amazing, together they are unforgettable. Be there and witness their first ever performance as Gunshot Glitter.
