Songwriter in the Round 2018

Singer Songwriters share their Music and Stories live on Nighttown Stage!

Featuring: Gretchen Pleuss, Emily Keener, Morgan Mecaskey, Michelle Gaw.

As with some of her proudly stated musical heroes, which include Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and Ani Difranco, Gretchen Pleuss keeps the music above the standard, three-chord, coffee-house troubadour sound with some cool chord progressions (a la Mitchell) and grooves. Pleuss also trusts her lilting melodies enough to use her quiet, emotive alto to sell her lyrics.

Emily Keener is a craftswoman of observation and emotion, and her live presence is reminiscent of conversations in dimly lit living rooms. Her music is a mirror and a magnifying glass, reflective and evocative; with compelling melodies and fierce honesty.Her latest record, “Breakfast” (November 2016) and 2018 finds her working tirelessly on a new collection of songs for her upcoming release.

Morgan Mecaskey is an American musician, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist living in Cleveland, Ohio. Her music  is a heart and head experience for the listener: earnest lyrics delve into metaphysical questions while vivid soundscapes, whimsical motifs, and fat beats build the bold and beguiling music.

Michelle Gaw is a singer/songwriter that has been writing and performing for seven years. She has a wide range of musical influences including folk, soul, jazz, and indie. Michelle focuses primarily on relatability and wordplay in her songwriting. She strives to make her audiences think differently about life’s subtleties. Using guided imagery and word painting, Michelle’s songs take listeners through vivid experiences.
