Ryan Scott Travis with Parker Hodges & Thomas Csorba
Thu, Feb 15 9:00 pm
Ryan Scott Travis: A Texas hill country reared, now Nashville based independent singer-songwriter Ryan Scott Travis wields a brand of Alt-Country Americana he refers to as Texacana. Reverently tying in the melancholic golden sounds of David Gates of Bread with the earthy reflections of Guy Clark, Travis creates a contemporary “comic cowboy” atmosphere. Parker Hodges: Parker Hodges, aka, Jonathan Williams writes songs unapologetic to the pains that enter into our lives without shying away from the humor that gets us through them. The words he uses capture both the difficulties and charms of 21st-century young adulthood, employing lyrics and melodies that carry with them a deep sense of empathy and understanding of the world he dwells in. Thomas Csorba: Thomas Csorba put his nose to the grindstone as a songwriter and performer at a young age, but these releases don't show his youth. In the same tradition as Townes Van Zandt, Woodie Guthrie, and other lyrical greats, Csorba's songs were written for old souls. His work is mournful, sweet, and beautifully honest. He's a link in a chain of a long tradition of powerful writers, and he's proud to bear that responsibility.
