With DAVE STEWART ENTERTAINMENT’s Nashville office officially open (located in the highly-praised Blackbird Studio), select artists on the company’s roster headed by Dave Stewart--singer, songwriter entrepreneur and co-founder of the Eurythmics—are gearing up for a month full of shows around town. February will see performances by The Lake Poets, Molly Tuttle and SHEL. Meanwhile, Dave Stewart arrives in Nashville the first week of February to begin producing The Lake Poets’ debut full-length album at Blackbird Studio.
THE LAKE POETS: Martin Longstaff, a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter from Sunderland, England creates heart-in-the-mouth music. Beautiful and quietly devastating—Inspired by artists such as Feist, Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, Tom Waits, Villagers, and Neil Young, Martin’s output as The Lake Poets is as haunting as it is beautiful.
SHEL: The SHEL sisters turn folk music upside down with their infectious rhythms, hypnotic vocals and captivating songs. Since the release of their self-titled debut CD in August 2012, they’ve toured across the U.S. and Europe mesmerizing audiences with their distinctive vocal arrangements and energized performances. Raised on a farm in Fort Collins, CO, the four Holbrook sisters are classically trained musicians, who started performing at a very young age as the backup band for their singer/songwriter father. SHEL’s songs can also be heard in television shows, independent films and national TV commercials.
