Songwriters @ Scup
We've got a great trio of songwriters set for our next "Second Sunday" afternoon round.
Since the November 2019 release of her first solo project, Mama’s Biscuits, Kirby Heard has become known for songs that take listeners on journeys through yesteryear and memories of home. Often introspective, inquisitive, and witty, these are songs with an authentic voice and perspective. Chris Spector (Midwest Record) called it ‘delightful, meaty songwriting that could only come from the heart and does a great job of opening your ears.’
Justin Reid says, "Born and raised in Greensboro. Music has always been apart of my life. Rather it be singing in church or singing and jamming with my family at any family get together. It wasn't until around age 25 I wanted to explore more of my talents. That eventually led to playing guitar and writing songs. Its been an interesting journey from then to now and I really feel I'm just getting started."
Dean Driver is a self-proclaimed late bloomer who didn't start writing songs until age 48. Twelve years later, he can't seem to stop writing and performing. A lyricist at heart, his songs orbit around big ideas – love, peace, and our interconnectedness – but try not to take themselves too seriously. Part of his message is to encourage audiences of all ages to step outside their comfort zones and listen to their inner artistic voices. He produced “Late Bloomer," his first album, in 2013. In 2011, with help from family and friends, Dean started Doodad Farm, an intimate music venue in Greensboro featuring both local and traveling artists.
No admission, but tips for the performers are encouraged. Come join us for a wonderful afternoon of song!
