A standing ovation showed the crowd’s appreciation of the four performing songwriters at Sunday’s Savannah Songwriters Series.
Lauren Lapointe headlined the group that included Robert Benton, Thomas Oliver and newcomer Taylor Martin at Johnny Harris restaurant.
As with each showcase, the songwriters performed four songs each, usually introducing each with the story behind the songs.
Lauren sang two songs from her upcoming CD, “Superhero,” including one co-written with Taylor.
Robert showcased his strong voice with similarly strong lyrics, while SSS host Thomas played some of his more autobiographical tunes.
Savannah Songwriters put on two showcases a month — the 2nd Sunday at Doc’s Bar and the 4th Sunday at Johnny Harris.
The next showcase of local songwriting talent will be March 10 at Doc’s Bar with Pete Love, Todd Murray, Dan Dunnagan and Thomas Oiver.
