Wednesday, December 10, 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM · Add to Calendar
Daryl Shawn grew up among Amish farms in rural Pennsylvania, studied classical and flamenco guitar in between jazz classes at Berklee College of Music, hitchhiked to San Francisco and formed Maxwell Horse, a trio which was soon opening shows for the likes of Brendan Benson and Rocket from the Crypt. After four releases and a number of successful tours, he split up the band and left the United States for the remote Mexican city of Oaxaca, where he spent five years writing solo instrumental and vocal songs and building his own approach to the acoustic guitar outside the influences of any scene. Leaving Mexico in 2009, he spent several years with no fixed address before settling in Brooklyn, New York.Shawn is frequently on the road and has developed a taste for endurance challenges, from undertaking solo tours of up to 45 dates by train and bus to doing a full set in each of New York’s five boroughs in one marathon day of performance.Currently, Shawn is celebrating the release of his latest album, “In Place”, while continuing to book and play live shows all across North America.

Carolyn Crysdale, Duke Walker, Angela Everwood, Daniel Rivera
Thursday, December 4, 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM · Add to Calendar
Carolyn has always had a strong love for music. Starting at the age of 16, she began to channel her years of experience in choir, voice lessons, musical theater, and band into the passion of performing as a singer/songwriter. Since then, she has performed internationally at venues including Queen’s Pub and Apple Annies Coffee in Ontario, Canada, and The Basement in Sydney, Australia. She has written over 30 songs, and her songwriting has been acclaimed as “on par with artists who are working with well-known record labels.” In the past year and a half, she has brought her passion to Washington DC and become deeply involved in the local music scene. She can been seen at such local hotspots as IOTA, Ebenezers Coffeehouse, The Dunes, Galaxy Hut, Treehouse Lounge, the 16th Street Music House and Buzz Bakery. She has been featured on the Music Still Happens Here: Volume 2 compilation album of DC artists. She is just getting started and will continue to share her stories and music for years to come.
Duke Walker is a kid from Virginia who now lives on Capitol Hill in DC. He spent most of his high school and college days in rooms, basements, sheds, and garages banging on drums with friends. He still loves banging on drums but his little one bedroom apartment just doesn’t make that possible anymore. So, instead, he sings as much as a talks and strums a guitar to support the stories in his head. He tries out his tunes on his super critical 11 month old baby girl who’s determined to help him hone his craft. He primarily writes fictional little stories in the first person, loves a good crooner, and if he had only one band to listen to for the rest of his life, it would be The Walkmen, of course. But really, he mostly just sings for his little baby girl.
Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Angela Everwood is a rising star in the country music scene. Her debut album I’ll Be Thinking Of You was recorded with some of the best talent in Nashville, TN, including chart topping producer Tom Paden (George Strait, Faith Hill) and Academy of Country Music Award winner Judy Rodman. Angela earned the opportunity to play her music at the 2012 92.5 XTU Anniversary Show, one of the largest country music festivals in the nation, by winning the local Singer/Songwriter Texaco Country Showdown.
Dan Rivera is a DC based songwriter originally from Miami, FL. His debut EP New Name is available on iTunes, Amazon and Google play.
