Our Headliner this week is Owen Danoff. One day when Owen was fifteen years old, his father (Bill Danoff, Grammy award winning songwriter of “Take Me Home, Country Roads” and “Afternoon Delight”) gave him an 8-track recording device, and by that night he had written and recorded his first song.
Chatham Street likes to call their sound "New Americana", as they feel it carries multiple musical influences, from old-time gospel, bluegrass, rootsy-folk, yet they feel it also has the edginess of the contemporary rock and pop music they grew up with. Christal’s vocals are a cross between Celtic and southern “down-home”, and they soar over Peter’s tasteful vintage guitar, sounding just like her Scottish-Appalachian heritage.
Jeff Smith. With inspiration and influences from early classic country, blues and pop, and from his beginnings in Huntington West Virginia, Jeff’s songs have strong lyrical content, and a poetic quality that unfolds and stays with you long after hearing them.
