Writers In The Round
Featuring Abe Parker, Carly Gibson and Hannah Zale
Abe Parker-Imagine if John Mayer met Maroon 5 and they all went to an EDM concert. That’s the best way to describe Abe Parker music. Parker combines his classical guitar chops and pop sensibility to create a unique and infectious “Blue Rock” sound. Parker views himself as genera-bridge musician, writing both catchy pop tunes and heartfelt songs about his belief in Jesus Christ. In 2012, Parker left a job as a zipline instructor and drove to Atlanta, GA staying with friends and sleeping in his car to pursue a music career. After intensive touring, sharing the stage with Andy Grammer, Switchfoot, Ryan Star, The Afters, Andrew Ripp and David Crowder, he is now producing an EP to be released in 2014. After Jan Smith (vocal coach for Justin Bieber, Usher, Colbie Caillat) heard Parker’s latest single she commented, “I really loved the song “Little Sister” and thought it was somewhat reminiscent of early James Taylor with some 2013 thrown in — a high compliment coming from me!”
Carly Gibson-In the music world, Carly Gibson is what you would call a triple threat: she not only composes soulful and sophisticated music, she also sings beautifully and plays a mean acoustic guitar. In addition, she is developing a substantial reputation for her skill on electric guitar, having performed a number of times as a lead guitarist with Caroline Aiken. Carly may be young but she sports an old soul; her dedication to her art is readily apparent in her performance.
Carly’s music resonates with the flavors that reflect her own diverse musical tastes and influences. Rock, jazz, folk, blues, Americana, bluegrass and funk all find their place in her repertoire. She counts among her influences such songwriters as Caroline Aiken, Paula Cole, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Tori Amos, as well as guitarists such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Angus Young and Michael Hedges.
Carly has performed at the Athens Human Rights Festival, ATHFEST, The Crimson Moon, the North Georgia Folk Festival, The Melting Point, Pepperland Farm’s Full Moon Ball, the Cox Capitol Theatre, the El Ray Theater in LA, the Northern Rockies Folk Festival, the Sautee Nacoochee Center, and at the renowned venue, Eddie’s Attic. She has had the privilege of sharing the stage with notable artists such as Jeff Sipe (Phil Lesh & Friends, Aquarium Rescue Unit), EG Kight, Caroline Aiken, Richie Jones, Ralph Roddenbery, Chris Hicks (Marshall Tucker Band), Randall Bramblett, Geoff Achison, harmonica wizard Steve Baker, Diane Durrett and Donna Hopkins. Carly has opened for Caroline Aiken, Donna Hopkins, Diane Durrett, Ralph Roddenbery, Geoff Achison, Tommy Talton, and Randall Bramblett. Carly often collaborates with fellow musician, BJ Wilbanks.
Carly’s 2010 debut EP, Heavy Water, is available through her website at carlygibson.net. Carly is studied guitar at the Atlanta Institute of Music. If you don’t know who Carly Gibson is yet, you certainly will soon!
Hannah Zale-Hannah Zale’s unique musical style combines her classical training, love of the blues narrative, and rock n’ roll attitude. The young front-woman and songwriter has recorded 2 EP’s with her band Boomfox, as well as headlined The Georgia Theatre and 40 Watt Club. As a recent graduate of The University of Georgia, Hannah Zale earned degrees in Social Media Theory and Music Business and now the soulful songstress is ready to take the next step in her career as a solo artist. She has been called a combination of Hayley Williams and Michael Buble with a 90′s flare. Inspired by nature, relationships, and the stressful journey to adulthood, Hannah Zale performs every lyric with love and passion.
