Songwriters in the Round, Vol 5

Songwriters In The Round Vol 5! These 3 excellent craftsmen will swap tunes, stories, riff on each other's work, and offer a glimpse into their creative processes. 

Jay Burgess is the principal songwriter behind beloved Shoals band The Pollies. His work on records like Not Here and Where The Lies Begin have brought critical acclaim, both for their lyrical content and the sonic experimentation that has become a calling card of the band. Usually wielding an electric and backed by his wall-of-sound compatriots, catch Burgess' work flourish when stripped down to its essence. 

Logan Ledger is a young songwriter from Nashville, TN. He's a reclusive presence online, but he's turned enough heads to catch the interest of legendary producer T Bone Burnett. Together, they are at work on Ledger's first record. His songs match that of a twentysomething disengaged with the headspinning flow of the age of social media: they patiently unfold, lifted by an incredible, timeless voice. He recently opened John Paul White's autumn tour, connecting with both John and his band of Florence based musicians as he won over room after room, night after night. We're proud to bring him to 116 for his first show in the Shoals. 

Daniel Crisler is the driving force behind Exotic Dangers, a proud Single Lock Records band making tunes the old fashioned way: rock n roll, 4 musicians in a room, banging out atmosphere and groove over well crafted songs. Crisler has been a mainstay of the Shoals scene for years, playing in various bands, performing his own songs under various names, but it is the Dangers that solidify the energy of his unique songwriting voice. He will undoubtedly find a way to bring that to our writers in the round.
