So I’ve been incredibly busy with side projects this Summer, and very grateful that I get to be a part of so many great things going on in Columbus. I wanted to take a moment to announce these and encourage you to check any one of them out!
Silvis - a youthful pop and rock band led by Luke and Matt Johnson, and featuring Chuck Worthy (FunkWorthy) and Nick Allen (Conversion Delay) as well as myself. Their live show is high-energy and full of a deep-knit crowd that knows all the words to most songs.
Elliott Collective - Kristen Elliott who plays violin in C&C has a very unique and beautiful violin-driven project. I have been lucky to work with her as a duo in many places, but at Big Room Bar on September 8th she will be releasing her full length album with live show featuring a cast of musicians (and a few who are involved in C&C)!
Donna Mogavero - an incredible singer-songwriter who has been a staple in Columbus for over 40 years. She has a new band line-up that launched at Comfest in June and it went so well, we just kept booking full band shows! You’ll definitely want to catch one of these shows soon!
Personal Public - though time is running out, PPub has been an awesome indie rock band in Columbus for years. With members of the band moving out of state, the group is going on indefinite hiatus but C&C member Ben Canton has taken the reigns for the last show and I will be filling in most of his original guitar parts. Be sure to check out the final show at Shrunken Head on August 4th!
Luke Mossburg - betcha didn’t know I was involved in country music, did ya?! Luke and I have been friends for years and it’s been great to see him continue to write great songs and grow as an artist. This summer he brought out the full band to a few local festivals and I had Efrum hop in on bass as well! I believe we are done booking for this summer but keep an eye on my events calendar if you like country too!
