Free admission. Free parking. All ages
Two of the Low Country’s most popular and talented musicians will share the Savannah Songwriters stage Sun., Feb. 9, at the American Legion hall on Tybee.
Jason Bible and Andrew Gill will be joined by Christina Christian and Shawn Gordon, both touring songwriters making their second SSS showcase.
As a solo artist, the Trainwrecks’ frontman Jason Bible has released seven collections of songs. The influence of Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash permeate his sound. He formed the Trainwrecks in 2005. The band is a perennially voted best Americana band in Savannah.
Andrew Gill was the lead vocalist for the popular local band Wormsloew. He can be heard most weekends around Savannah playing solo or with the Andrew Gill Band.
Andrew’s vocals are as dynamic as you’ll hear in the Coastal Empire. He possesses perhaps one of the strongest voices to grace the Savannah Songwriters Series. His lyrics are as strong as his voice.
Christina Christian last performed a SSS showcase as Christian Cecrle.
She was born and raised on the Alabama Gulf Coast in the small town of Foley, Ala. She began writing and playing guitar at the age of 16. After graduating fro high school, Christina attended Troy University for one year before deciding to pursue her music fulltime.
Christina released an EP “The Acoustic’s” which included “Mile 23″ and “Weathered Love.”
Christina makes occasional trips to Nashville to play at songwriter’s rounds such as The Commodore Grill and Hotel Indigo Downtown and plans to eventually move to Tune City to pursue her dream.
South Carolinian Shawn Gordon plays swamp boogie blues, rock and roll country and soul. He plays solo gigs, is the lead singer and guitarist for The Shawn Gordon Band and also plays bass guitar for Johnny C and the Wrecking Crew.
Savannah Songwriters Series is entering its fourth year of staging showcases for original music. All are free to the public and start at 6 p.m. the 2nd Sunday at the Tybee Island American Legion and the 4th Sunday at Johnny Harris.
