Christina Martin | Sasha McVeigh w Loveless Effect | American YoungGUEST LIST FULL Doors 7:00pm Live 7:30pm
Christina will be accompanied by Dale Murray on guitar
Martin’s musical journey since her first release in 2002 has led to extended stays in Austin, Texas, as well as Germany, from where she has cultivated a substantial following across mainland Europe. Along the way, she has earned multiple East Coast, and Music Nova Scotia Award nominations, had songs placed in television programs, and even performed for Queen Elizabeth II in Ottawa.
2015 was a big year, seeing the release of ‘It’ll be Alright’ voted by CBC Music in the top four favourite albums from the East Coast and the single ‘You Ran from Me’ is the #14 of the most played Canadian songs on Sonica for 2015
Martin’s songs trade in a certain familiarity, enhanced by her smoky voice that seems to pull its phrases from the musical ether; you swear you’ve heard her songs before, even if they’re brand new
It’ll Be Alright will find a home with fans of Fleetwood Mac, Melissa Etheridge and The Hold Steady…With tales of love lost, anxiety and small town desperation running throughout, this is storytelling at its finest
“Anyone who has yet to experience her music is missing out.” Sarah Waspe, Grapevine Live
Sasha McVeigh, Female Country Vocalist of the Year 2015, with band Loveless Effect.
In the summer of 2014, Seth Loveless was invited to play lead guitar for British, award-winning, singer/songwriter Sasha McVeigh when she performed on the main stage at Country Jam USA in Wisconsin. As a result, when Sasha embarked on a headline tour of the United Kingdom in September 2015, she asked Loveless Effect to join her as her backing band, in addition to them having an opening slot on the entirety of the tour. They played to sold-out audiences across the UK, building a strong fan base across the pond and testing the waters as touring musicians.
Since returning to the US, Loveless Effect have been touring across the country with Sasha McVeigh, performing in Atlanta, Nashville and Los Angeles as well as on the main stage at the Deadwood Mountain Grand in Deadwood, SD during the prestigious Wild West Songwriter’s Festival.
The future is looking incredibly bright for the Arizona-based band who are currently writing material for their second album and are slated to embark on a tour of Europe, the US and Canada with Sasha McVeigh in 2016
American Young. It’s more than a name. It’s a movement. A passion for music and more importantly it’s meaning. As artists, songsmiths, producers, and entertainers, Jon Stone and Kristy Osmunson define American Young this way. They are seasoned veterans on how music can inherently affect emotion and even culture. The collaborative fresh new duo already claim songwriting credits for hit makers Kenny Chesney, Lee Brice, Rascal Flatts, Blake Shelton and more. Recording and writing comes from a deep, poignant place with a desire to affect global audiences with songs featuring tight harmonies and storytelling. “American Young represents a sound with no boundaries. We are squarely focused on delivering our own brand of music and hope that folks will find our songs everything from haunting to dramatic and intense”, says Jon.
This evening is expected to fill up quickly. We are suggesting a £15 artist donation.
