Sunset Saloon welcomes 2008 Artist of the Year!

Last year when I first heard Christina Martin’s album “Two Hearts,” it blew me away. It’s so melodic and so interesting and so powerful and so pretty and just plain AWESOME. I’ve said before that she combines the heartbreaking lyricism of Lucinda Williams, the smoky, sexy voice of Amy Rigby, and the immediately memorable melodies of Shawn Colvin into one complete package. I really think that this gal should, and hopefully will be a well known and well respected artist, world wide, some day, so I’m getting in on the ground floor as quickly as I can. I tried to get her hooked up with a show in the area so I could see her live, but then I realized that sometimes, if you want something done right (and I’m not going to screw this up!), you just have to do it yourself. And so, I’m very excited and proud to present live, in concert, in my house, Christina Martin and her good friend Steven Bowers (another talented singer/songwriter who I know you’ll love), live at the Sunset Saloon on August 27. That’s still a ways away, so no real need to worry about getting tickets now, but mark it on your calendar and make sure you’re around, because you’re not going to want to miss this one!
