Born and raised in south Alabama, Americana, country singer-songwriter Christina Christian returns to the Savannah Songwriter Series for her third showcase. For the last five years, Christina has traveled the Southeast, performing her music.
Last year was a turning point. Christina began being recognized for her songwriting craft, which led to performing in the Frank Brown International Songwriter’s Festival, the Mississippi Songwriters Festival, and the Hwy. 80 Songwriters Festival in Meridian, MS.
She also lived briefly in Nashville before moving to Perdido Key, Fla., where in between shows, the 22-year-old is also marketing director at Blue Hound Promotions in Pensacola, FL.
This year Christina plans to release new music, with a single in the Spring, along with a Live album in the Summer.
Clark Byron will be making his SSS debut. A 40-year veteran of songwriting and performing. The lion’s share of his accomplishments were in the Christian music world, with two successful CD albums almost exclusively of original material. His recordings have sold the world over. After spending 26 years in Kansas City, Clark moved to Savannah four years ago.
Clark has performed all over the country in both sacred and secular venues. He has appearned many times on local, national and worldwide television, on such networks as The Nashville Network, the Trinity Broadcasting Network, and the Daystar Television Network.

A self taught guitar player, Mark has become highly skilled in the styles of rock and roll, country and blues and still works to perfect his style and technique every day. He has played with the likes of The Late Great Isaac Scott, Albert Collins and David Brewer and opened for Bruce Hampton.
He has toured and recorded in many areas of the country from Alaska to Georgia and released three singles of his own. He now lives and plays with his own trio called “Gypsy Slim” and a duo called “The SlimRoc Duo,” also the “Hounddog slim duo.”
Jonathan Hill has been playing in Savannah for the last five years after moving from Mississippi. He is a touring bassist and spends his off time recording and writing in his home studio.
