Courtney Cole with Danny Kensy

Jun 2, 2017 |  0 comments

A country artist with a pop sensibility and a playfully sassy attitude, Courtney Cole was born in Mandeville, Louisiana on September 18, 1987. Growing up only 20 minutes from New Orleans, Cole soaked up a rich variety of music, and her parents were serious country music fans who first met when they were dancing the two-step at a honky tonk. At the age of five, Cole performed on-stage for the first time, lip-syncing Sonny & Cher’s “I Got You, Babe” with her dad at a church talent show. When Cole was ten, she began attending the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, a performing arts academy in the Crescent City, where she developed a passion for musical theater. Soon Cole was appearing in student productions of The Little Shop of Horrors, The Wizard of Oz, Annie, and The Music Man, among others. But country music remained a personal favorite with Cole, and after completing college, she enrolled at Belmont University, where she majored in commercial voice. By this...

This is songwriting from a time when irresistible hooks were just expected, and the Taters don’t disappoint! Roots-pop: an eclectic mix of roots-rock, power-pop, country, and Americana, a sound that’s been described as “Country roots-pop with the genius songwriting of 60’s & 70’s power-pop, …a curious mix of Mavericks, Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and Beatles” (CDBaby).

No Depression magazine describes it like this: “Think ‘Beatles For Sale’ if Marty Robbins were a primary influence instead of Carl Perkins.” The Washington Post says the Taters “Successfully combine the best elements of Buddy Holly with the vocal harmonies of the Everly Brothers.” Members Craig Evans – Vocals, bass, piano Brad...

Gabrielle Louise is a nationally touring troubadour noted for her poignant lyrics and lush voice. The daughter of two vagabond musicians, Gabrielle inherited the predisposition to wanderlust and song. Gabrielle Louise’s music is anchored deeply in folk and Americana, but undeniably drawn to rich harmonies and melodic adventurism. Her sound has the earthy feel of early Joni Mitchell while also veering into the spirited and versatile delivery of fellow genre-hopping artist Eva Cassidy. Unafraid to take a musical escapade in the name of inspiration, Gabrielle is at one moment folkie and ethereal, the next a smoky jazz chanteuse. Known for her authenticity and candor on stage, Gabrielle’s performances are notably present and sincere, a professional presentation of her private creative world. Her story-telling and banter envelopes and enchants, gently enticing her listener to release their grip on the status quo. Perhaps because of this quality, Louise has been entrusted to...

Singer, songwriter, guitarist, storyteller, sailor and road warrior are all words that aptly describe Scott Kirby. Writing songs for a new CD, performing 150 live shows a year throughout the US and Canada, and holding down the stage at his own club—Key West’s Smokin’ Tuna Saloon—keep the barnacles off this modern-day troubadour. A creative lyricist and accomplished finger-style acoustic guitarist with an expressive voice, Kirby describes himself as a direct descendent of the ’70s singer/songwriter movement. His very first 45 was a Beatles record, and he came of musical age listening to James Taylor and other great songwriters of that era. When it comes to songwriting, Kirby respects authenticity and counts on everyday life and his coastal roots for much of his inspiration. “I don’t wake up every day thinking about writing the next commercial hit,” says Kirby. “Songwriting for me is about telling stories, expressing emotions, and commentary on things I may find funny...
