Four Bay Area songwriters will perform an all-ages Songwriters Spotlight show at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley this Sunday.
The performance includes Graham Patzner of Whiskerman, Kendra McKinley, Shelby Ann and Eric Silverman of HEARTWATCH. From folk to alt-country, chamber pop and indie-rock, this night will include artists just from San Francisco, Oakland and Napa.
Patzner released a solo album, Ballads, following four with Whiskerman. McKinley blends various genres from chamber pop to jazz, soul and psychedelia into her songs, which she’s been known to perform either solo or with a full band.
Napa singer-songwriter Shelby Lynn has opened for the likes of Bob Mould, Lisa Loeb, Shooter Jennings and Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers. And indie rock and pop guitarist Silverman provided the engine to popular San Francisco band HEARTWATCH. More recently he’s written and recorded a debut solo EP, Rookie, influenced by the likes of The Kinks, Wilco and Bruce Springsteen.
