A cozy, February edition of Lyricists’ Corner featured Dayton songwriters Jayne Sachs and Kevin Milner, alongside Richmond’s own Brentney Campbell. Aaron Nell and Cory Glisson joined the mix to add a little extra instrumental flavor. As always, Achilles Tenderloin hosted the event at New Boswell Brewery & Tap Room in Richmond and played a few songs of his own.
Official Lyricists’ Corner photographer Nate Stevens was there, too. He captured some beautiful shots of the evening. Scroll down to find a gallery of Nate’s photos from the event.
The photos also show freshly hung artwork from local painters Mark Van Buskirk, Joe Thompson, and Ron Deane (left to right), hanging in the background. An unexpected twist: one of the paintings from Ron is a portrait of our good friend Aaron Nell playing his trumpet!
About halfway through the night, things really heated up, as one by one, host and performers went unplugged and on occasion, waded into the room for some especially intimate moments.
Next Event: March 6, 2016
March’s event will be a very special night with featured song crafters Kate Wakefield, Megan Eversole, Aaron Nell, and Craig Wynne. As always, the above will be joined by Achilles Tenderloin. RSVP on Facebook!
Kate Wakefield has taken Cincinnati by storm, the past couple of years, wooing listeners with her fresh cello and vocal arrangements–and racking up a slough of impressive awards, to boot. I encourage you to check out her latest videos and recordings on Youtube, Bandcamp, and Kate’s website.
Megan Eversole’s beautiful songs have been a staple of our local music scene for many years, as well as at music festivals in Florida and New York. You can hear songs from Megan’s full-length Lake Worth Sessions release can be sampled on her cdBaby page.
Aaron Nell, who frequently contributes his immense multi-instrumentalist talent at Lyricists’ Corner, will share some of his own compositions this time, as one of our featured songwriters. Trust me: you will not want to miss this opportunity.
Craig Wynne’s stunning original songs are a rare treat as well. Craig is one of the hardworking musicians who does so much to help keep Richmond’s fledgling music scene moving and grooving. In addition to performing frequently with a number of bands (Blackthorn’s Bards and The Years, to name a couple) as both singer and multi-instrumentalist, Craig runs his own recording studio, and hosts E Street Pub’s popular weekly open mic.
