June 21st- Marti Jones and Don Dixon-After more than 20 years performing together, Marti Jones and Don Dixon have forged an impressive collective musical career flaunting melodic range, edgy depth, clever but catchy lyrics and a mad mutual appreciation for the quality of life.
Jones and Dixon have managed to do all this together without diminishing their distinct individual traits in the process. Not an easy process, especially within a marriage or the music industry.
On one hand, there’s Dixon, the singer, songwriter, musician and critically acclaimed producer originally from Lancaster, whose list of credits is as lengthy as it is diverse. Highlights range from R.E.M.’s landmark debut to work with The Smithereens, Marshall Crenshaw, Joe Cocker, even Ronnie Spector. Then, enter sultry Jones with her rich voice and sensitive quality. Some compare her vocal skills to Dusty Springfield or Annie Lennox, but she exerts formidable skills as an artistic interpreter all her own
Together they wield sassy stage rapport and consummate talent, tossing around defining terms from jangle pop, Southern soul, and alt/indie to pop rock, acoustic pop and contemporary rock.
Excited to add Todd Burge to this already great night- From his recent work with Tim O’Brien, to his early days as an alternative rocker at WVU in Morgantown, if it’s been discovered by man, West Virginian Todd Burge has written about it. Born to ponder and observe life, each of his songs tells a story. Whether drawn from personal experience or a tale of poetically woven fiction, you’ll live every second of it through his songs.
