Blend a powerful singer, crisp acoustic guitar player and a heartfelt observer of the world and you have singer-songwriter Lynn Hollyfield. Her style of music can be described as an “indie-folk-pop” (Leiccasterbangs, UK) with a little touch of blues and jazz. The resulting blend – her own voice mingling wit, a smoky sweetness and thoughtful reverie to her songwriting and performance. Hollyfield’s newest recording – In the Balance – is a compelling collection of 12 originials with an underlying thread of finding the delicate balance in life-summed up in the title cut. Hollyfield worked with Producer Marco Delmar and supporters/fans of a Kickstarter campaign to put the music of In the Balance out into the world. www.lynnhollyfield.com
Carey Creed has garnered six top vocalist Wammies from the Washington Area Music Association, and multiple First Place honors from the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. Both her new "Small Braveries" and previous "Peace of Wild Things" CDs on the Azalea City Recordings label have won Wammies and have charted on the international folk DJ list-serve. Carey sings her heart out at folk concerts, festivals, and retreats, sometimes accompanied by stringed instrument phenom Mark Sylvester, and other times with hammered dulcimer goddess Jody Marshall and with lovely singer-songwriters Lynn Hollyfield and Mary Gordon Hall.
Mary Gordon Hall’sdebut cd, “Wine Glasses & Wooden Spoons” (2006), finds her in the richest expression yet of both voice and songwriting talent. Receiving radio play coast to coast, radio host and singer songwriter.
Mary Gordon Hall has had an opportunity to share the stage with such premier musicians as Jesse Winchester (even got to sing What Makes You Strong with him!), Kate Campbell, Christine Lavin, Cheryl Wheeler, Tom Prasada-Rao, Cosy Sheridan, Bob Franke, Anne Hills and David Roth.
