In The Round with Don Gallardo, Chris Wilson, Rorey Carroll and Allen Thompson
The Bluebird Cafe
Wed, Sep 19 6:00 pm

Don Gallardo: Don Gallardo was raised in a small town in Northern California, where he spent years building his songwriting career on the west coast before relocating to Nashville in 2007. Now based in Nashville, Tennessee, he walks the line between folk, Americana and roots-rock, mining the influence of classic 1970s singer-songwriters while creating a sound that nods to the past while still pushing ahead toward something new. Chris Wilson: A native of New York, U.S.A., Chris has gained celebrity status for his vocally driven songwriting and passionate live performances. Chris’ career brought him to Los Angeles, California for a brand new MTV show called “The Cut”. He became 1 of only 10 artists to win their way to the finals from a field of 160 competitors and over 10 thousand hopefuls from around the world. Chris went on to win MTV’s “Viewers Choice Award” for his performance in the finals.  Rorey Car­rol­l: Rorey Car­rol­l’s sound rolls in low and pow­er­ful with the feel­ing of a Taran­tino film for the ears. A new kind of “Coun­try West­ern Folk-n-Roll” With mu­si­cal roots in the blue­grass world, she has de­vel­oped her sound into some­thing unique and bold pulling from rock/ amer­i­cana/ folk in­flu­ences. Allen Thompson: We first got to know Allen Thompson back in 2009 when he released 26 Years, an acoustic album that married the earthy low-down sentiments of Levon Helm with the hippy flourishes of American Beauty-era Grateful Dead. Since then, Thompson has continued to release music and tour, with his latest effort, Salvation In The Ground, coming out in 2012.-By Caine O'Rear
