Three of Savannah’s hottest young songwriters will showcase their talents Sun., Sept. 22, at the Savannah Songwriters Series at Johnny Harris restaurant.
Matt Eckstine of the Accomplices, Britt Scott of the Lovely Locks and Kyrsten Paige of the Rosies will join SSS veteran Thomas Oliver for a writers-in-the-round performance starting at 6 p.m.
Matt and the Accomplices burst on the scene two years ago with the release of “Canned Beans,” an all-original CD. The string band plays a combination of groove-based blues-grass with overtones of jazz and bohemian country. They are putting the finishing touches to their second CD.
Matt plays guitar, is the lead vocalist and writes some of the Accomplices more lyrical tunes. He also performs solo and as Pluff Mudd, a duo with Accomplices bandmate Eric Daubert.
Britt Scott is one-third of the Lovely Locks, a trio of songwriting ladies with attitudes. She is also the staple performer at The House of Mata Hari (Savannah’s only speakeasy), a member of the newly formed americana group American Hologram (with Eric Britt, Craig Tanner and Eric Dunn), and is in the process of recording a solo album with her father/drummer Tom Scott.
Kyrsten Paige is an emerging artist, who has been working on her craft since she was eight years old. Now, 22, she shares the stage with her sister Kourtney in the indie soul duo, The Rosies, who have been making a splash in Savannah. A song off their E.P Spectrum, “Game of the Wicked,” has been selected as the protagonists theme song in the San Francisco Independent Film, “Writers Cramp” coming out early next year.
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.”
This month, Thomas embarks on a 17-stop fall tour in support of the CD with several shows in Atlanta, as well as gigs in Blue Ridge, South Carolina, Tampa, Clearwater and St. Pete.
