Garrison Starr, Maia Sharp & Adrianne Gonzalez (AG)

Event Date: 
Wednesday, October 3, 2012 - 8:00pm

In their first tour together, this unique collaboration brings together three impressive female singer-songwriters.

No stranger to the music industry, Garrison Starr began her career at the age of 15 and has released six full-length records and several EPs. Her newest album, “Amateur,” came out in May 2012, featuring collaborations with Glen Phillips, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Adrianne Gonzalez, Kevin Devine and Justin Glasco. With “one of the strongest voices in town,” Garrison’s “affecting, emotion-bearing songs . . . are clothed in attractive, melodic garb.” In the words of MSNBC, "Garrison Starr's greatest gift is her gorgeous, full, rough, passionate voice that can be ultimately pensive, intimate, hurt, consoling, libidinous, or scornful— sometimes during the same verse."

Beginning with Hardly Glamour in 1997, Maia Sharp has released four solo albums and one trio album with Art Garfunkel and Buddy Mondlock, each garnering critical recognition, and built her following through touring on her own as well as opening for such headliners as Bonnie Raitt, Keb' Mo', Patty Griffin, Art Garfunkel and Jonatha Brooke. With her upcoming release, “Change the Ending,” Sharp will bring the facets of her career together fully for the first time. Blessed with a broad vocabulary, verbal and musical, she writes conversationally, with an ear for finding poetry in direct expressions of emotion. “A potpourri of pop, country and rock with hints of jazz, mixing banjos and mandolins with cellos and violas to produce a sound that’s polished without being slick.”

Influenced by the likes of Omar Reid, Melissa Etheridge and the Indigo Girls, Miami native Adrianne Gonzalez has been writing and performing for over ten years in Miami, Boston, Toronto, Atlanta, London, and Los Angeles. She forms a quarter of the harmony-driven quartet “The Rescues,” whose music has famously underscored many hit TV shows, including One Tree Hill and Grey’s Anatomy. Adrianne has 9 solo albums to date, and has toured nationwide and all over Europe as a headliner and opener for many major artists such as Jeff Buckley, Jackson Browne, and Tegan And Sara.
