Scot Sax & Suzie Brown with Sally & George
Suzie Brown & Scot Sax
Suzie Brown writes songs to process her life. For a singer-songwriter, it’s not that unique of a creative impulse. But when you’re also a cardiologist, used to being stoic and selfless on the job, the catharsis is even more essential. With her gift for unforgettable melodies and evocative lyrics, it’s hard to imagine it’s only been several years since she penned her first song.
Scot Sax knows his way around a song. He has been writing them for years, whether it was with his own bands Wanderlust and Feel, or as a purveyor of hits for singers like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. It was Sax, in fact, who co-wrote the country duo’s Grammy-winning smash “Like We Never Loved At All.” His catchy “I Am the Summertime,” penned while with the band Bachelor Number One, was featured in the blockbuster “American Pie.” And he’s netted countless TV credits, with song placements in shows like “ghost Whisperer,” “NCIS,” “CSI: NY” and “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
Brown and Sax met by chance at a mutual friend’s wedding. Eleven months later they were married. It didn’t take long to realize that their chemistry was infectious both on and off the stage, and they have been slowly but surely combining their musical worlds. Sax co-produced Brown’s solo album ‘Almost There’ with Oliver Wood (Wood Brothers). Brown’s folk/Americana roots influenced Sax to explore a more raw, stripped down sound on his latest solo release “I’m In A Mood.”
Sally & George
In the town where country music was born (Bristol, TN), where two states come together on one street (State Street), a spark lit and a duo was ignited. Shelby and Joel met at the crossroads of country and rock and roll
The Nashville based duo, Sally and George, consists of Joel Timmons on guitar, percussion and vocals and GRAMMY nominated Shelby Means playing upright bass and singing. Drawing from their love for the classic duet styles of Johnny Cash and June Carter, as well as contemporary artists, The White Stripes and Shovels & Rope, Sally and George breathe life and love into the ever widening world of Americana. Merging Joel’s freeform live performances (Sol Driven Train) and Shelby’s energetic structure and bluegrass pedigree (formerly of Della Mae), the pair bring new material with stripped down instrumentation, emphasizing song craft and hypnotic vocals, to stages across the country. Their debut album was released in the fall of 2016.
