The final preliminary week in The Blue Light Spring Singer-Songwriter Competition is tonight. Over the last two Mondays, a total of seven songwriters from the region have moved on to the Finale happening next Monday, April 20. This week, another handful will be moving on and joining Week I winners Daniel Davis, Daniel Payne, Jerry Serrano, and Jon Young, and Week II winners Zoe Carter, Matt Morgan, and Landon Scoggins.
This week, the following singer-songwriters will be performing:
Justin Michael Bell, Colton Clarkson, James Cook Cyrus James, Justin Keith, Travis Looney, Conner Martin, Curtis Peoples, Blan Scott, Brandon Steadman, Larry Sumpter, Koe Wetzel, and Brenda Williams.
Doors open at 9 p.m. Music will start promptly at 10 p.m.
Additionally, we’d love to go ahead and get everyone familiar with our intentions of creating a listening room atmosphere for these specific dates. This is ultimately a songwriter competition which values the craft of lyrics, storytelling, vocals, mood, emotion, and feeling. That essentially means giving the one performing our absolute attention and observation. In short, shut up and listen.
