Songwriters in the Round 2

Three outstanding singer-songwriters join forces for an in-the-round showcase sprinkled with collaboration... SONYA HELLER A native New Yorker raised on vodka infused poetry and Slavic doom with equal parts American sass and a first generation zealousness for free speech. She cut her teeth at NYC’s iconic Bitter End, The Living Room and the Knitting Factory in the footsteps of Joni Mitchell, Laura Nyro and Leonard Cohen, whose poetic genius sparked her very early GLENN MACPHERSON Glenn’s exquisitely crafted songs reflect everyday people and places supported by his mellow voice and stellar guitar playing. His songs receive international airplay and have been featured in dozens of TV shows and commercials. Glenn is humbly decorated with numerous songwriting awards from some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions, including: Sisters Folk Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, West Coast Songwriters, Fast Folk in New York City, and the local Mars Studio Songwriting contest. MIDYNE After growing up with a name like Midyne (pronounced meh-DEEN), she was destined to be unique... Midyne’s original melodic grooves are infused with blues, pop, and jazz influences that sprout seamlessly from her folk roots. Her lyrics “capture concrete images of life with surprising observations of human frailties” (Bob.H.). She delivers her songs with a crystal-clear strength that invites comparisons to Gillian Welch, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Joni Mitchell.
