This fall, let two of today's most gifted songwriters steal you away for an evening!
Legendary songstress Sophie B. Hawkins has been tugging at heartstrings for decades with her powerful storytelling. Sophie’s signature style of painting beautiful scenes of love, heartbreak, self awareness and everything in between translates beautifully into a live show, leaving audiences rapt. She got her big break with the mega hit single “Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover” and she released her critically acclaimed debut album 'Tongues And Tails' in 1992, earning her a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. Since then, Sophie has accumulated more awards and performed with some of the best in the business, like Chris Isaak, Melissa Etheridge and Sting.
Ellis Paul is a talented singular storyteller whose words and music reach listeners in an intimate and engaging way. His music has been compared to Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie and Bruce Springsteen and he was a crucial part of the folk revival of the 1990s. You've heard Ellis' songs in TV, movies and beyond, bridging the gap between modern folk and populist traditions.
