Two touring songwriters join the stage with one of Savannah’s stronger male voices and a mainstay of the Savannah Songwriters’ Series.
Christina Cecrle was born and raised on the Alabama Gulf Coast in the small town of Foley, Ala.
After Christina performed at her first high school talent show, music easily became her passion. 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.
Last year, Cecrle 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.
Andrew Gill was the lead vocalist for the popular local band Wormsloew. He can be heard most weekends around Savannah solo or the Andrew Gill band.
Andrew’s vocals are as dynamic as any 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.
Singer/songwriter Mama Gina feels most at home when she can feel the earth beneath her feet and taste the freedom of the open sky. With down-to-earth, bluesy vocals, a bit of humor and straight-ahead, rhythmic acoustic guitar, she tells the true stories that fall into her head and heart. She sings of life, death and rebirth. She sings of holding on and letting go.
From Tampa, Mama Gina shares true stories and even truer myths, inspired from camping beneath the stars, under the trees, and just about anywhere else she can set up her tent. If you light the fire, she’ll bring her guitar and drum, and a bit of humor.
Roy Swindelle is one of the Coastal Empire’s best-known musicians. Roy is a multi-instrumentalist, playing drums, bass, guitar, steel drums and harmonica. Rumor has it that he is taking fiddle lessons. He plays solo, often as Roy and the Circuit Breakers as well as with the Christy Alan Band.
Roy is a producer of the Savannah Songwriters Series, which showcases original music twice monthly – the 2nd Sunday at the Tybee Island American Legion and the 4th Sunday at Johnny Harris. All are free to the public and start at 6 p.m.
