Four veteran songwriters return to the Savannah Songwriters stage Sun., Sept. 8, at Tybee’s American Legion.
Singing is a family tradition for Statesboro’s John Brown, who last played a SSS showcase in February.
His father was an Elvis impersonator in the late 50′ s and taught John how to play guitar. Both parents sang together on the weekends and eventually John joined in and later his brother as well.
John has had his own band, Outrider, for the last 20 years. He has two CDs, the latest – “Who’s Laughing Now” – was the result of some friends winning the lottery. (We’ll let him tell the story. It’s a good-un.)
Mark Molloy is self-taught guitar player, becoming versatile in the styles of rock and roll, country and blues
He has toured and recorded in many areas of the country, from Alaska to
Georgia, and has recorded and released three singles of his own.
He now lives and plays in Savannah, where he performs with his own trio called “Gypsy Slim” and a duo called “The SlimRoc Duo.”
This will be Mark’s second showcase.
Pete Love, a SSS favorite, has played with groups such as the Denny Phillips Band, Spectrum, Band in the Park and Mary Davis and Co. for nearly three decades.
A sought-after guitarist who is comfortable with most genres, Pete is currently playing with the Navigators.
Thomas Oliver has just released his first CD in seven years, “The Edge of America,” of which Connect’s Bill DeYoung said he displayed a “journalistic eye for detail and poetic flow.”
Later this month, Thomas will begin a 17-stop fall tour in support of the CD with several gigs in Atlanta, as well as stops in Blue Ridge, South Carolina Tampa, Clearwater and St. Pete.
