Sensational Singer Songwriters from Madison, Wisconsin Live at Nighttown!
Featuring: Ohio Native Jen Farley, Beth Kille, & Shawndell Marks.
On Nighttown's Fully Covered and Heated Stephens Green Patio.
In September of 2013, ?Beth Kille and Shawndell Marks, two successful solo artists, had the opportunity to take the stage with a "new girl" in town, Jennifer Farley, at a showcase for female singers in Madison, WI. There was instant chemistry. Beth and Shawni were in a co-writing session one day when Beth confided in Shawni, "I have a little fantasy... that you and Jen and I will start a trio and conquer the world!" Shawni was in. All it took was a quick email to Jen, to which she replied "Oh, I am so in..."
The trio began compiling songs, both originals and covers to perform. They booked some shows, receiving rave reviews and standing ovations. The tight 3-part harmonies, the honesty in the music, the strong-yet-simple presentation of acoustic guitar/piano/percussion and vocals, and the clear loving bond these three women shared through music (and life) captivated their listeners.
The group has recently founded Kille, Marks and Farley and a Be Your Own Superhero motivational presentation which combines MUSIC+MOTIVATION through personal stories and audience participation.
?Gin, Chocolate & Bottle Rockets released their first EP in November of 2014 and took home the 2015 & 2017 Madison Area Music Association (MAMA) Award for Ensemble Vocalists of the Year. They have recently released a well-received full length album, Lean.
