May 12th 7pm Songwriter Showcase : Max Norton + Shawn Kyle
A pair of Tampa’s favorite sons and long term collaborators in influential Florida bands such as the Beauvilles, and Laurel Canyon, Max Norton and Shawn Kyle are both roving troubadors, having recently set up new musical home bases in Nashville TN, and Baltimore MD respectively, with Norton touring with ATO recording artist Benjamin Booker and Kyle touring with college radio favorites AMFMS.
Max Norton is nearing the debut of his own singer songwriter recorded effort, with new material culled from his global tours and life on the road. Recorded in Nashville with members of the Thirdman records team, it is an acoustic driven affair with string sections and longing for both adventure and home.
Shawn Kyle having recently performed at SXSW music festival, and opening for Charles Bradley, has still found time to produce recordings for artists like Have Gun Will Travel and J.T. Brown. Kyle’s solo material spans several genres and styles and along with his voice can both be intimate and unpredictable.
This is an early show 7pm- 9:30pm no cover. Catch them while they are both in town! Not to be missed!
