Jenn Bostic, Sarah Darling & Michael Logen (Fri 26th May)
FRIDAY, 26TH MAY 2017 JENN BOSTIC, SARAH DARLING & MICHAEL LOGEN
Last September Jenn Bostic, Sarah Darling and Kyshona Armstrong played a wonderful ‘Songs in the Round’ style concert to a sold out audience. It was one of the best concerts of the year. Now Jenn an Sarah are back with award winning singer songwriter Michael Logen. We are fortunate to have secured a date on this, their latest UK tour. JENN BOSTIC is most well known for her hit single ‘Jealous of The Angels’, written as a tribute to her late father. Life for Jenn began in Philadelphia, but unfolded in Minnesota where her family regularly around a piano or guitar to sing. Jenn’s father played accordion for the respected roots ensemble Travelled Ground.
After losing her dad in a car crash when Jenn was just 10, the band took her under their wing. When she was 16 they asked her to play and sing in the band. On graduating from school, Jenn attended Berklee College of Music and performed every weekend up and down the east coast of America. After graduating she moved to Nashville, played the Bluebird Café and developed relationships with various songwriters. In 2012 she released Jealous, which featured ‘Jealous of the Angels’. The song was picked up by Simon Bates and play listed on BBC Radio 2. Jenn performed the song on BBC Breakfast and that day it went to No. 1 on the I Tunes singer songwriter charts. She went on to be the first international independent artist to have three single play listed on BBC Radio 2.
In 2014 Jenn released ‘Faithful’ and the album debuted with a performance of the song ‘Little Grace’ on BBC Songs of Praise. Jenn Bostic continues to pull on the heart strings of people around the world with her heartfelt songs and her emotionally powerful voice. SARAH DARLING is sure to take us on whimsical ride through her songs about love, life, the universe and more. She call her sound Dream Country and that is a perfect definition of her music. Sarah has released four albums, the latest of which, ‘Dream Country’ contains a beautiful selection of songs. She is extremely popular back home in the States, with millions of downloads, no. 1 videos on GMT and GAC and around 65K Facebook Friends. Her biggest hit ‘Home to Me’ lead to nationwide TV appearances and support slots for artists like Carrie Underwood and Kacey Musgraves.
She has played over 80 times at the Grand Ole Opry. Not only is Sarah Darling a top song writer and singer, she is also a successful business woman. She has recently just launched her own range of boots with Durango and runs a successful confectionery business. MICHAEL LOGEN is one of Nashville’s top male singer song writers. His songs have been recorded, and sometimes co-written, by the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Paul Carrack, Will Hoge and The Greencards to name but a few. His songs have also been featured on numerous national TV shows, including six placement songs from his new album ‘New Medicine’, which is an incredibly strong album. Michael Logen was raised in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania where he learned to play guitar, piano and harmonica during informal jam sessions with friends and family.
Over the past few years he has performed throughout North America and Europe and has opened shows for the likes of John Hiatt and John Legend. ‘New Medicine’ uplifts the soul with sincerity and gritty indie folk-pop songs. It also exhibits high energy and an extroverted style. Three of the ten tracks feature breath taking collaborations with female vocalists Kim Richey, Ruby Amanfu and Liz Longely. It shows Michael Logen to be at the top of the song writing game and will propel him forward as a singer to be reckoned with.
