Brandon Green

Brandon Green is a dynamic singer/songwriter who has built up quite a following along the Gulf Coast. His shows are a must see for both locals and tourists looking for a great entertainer. A southern boy from Lucedale, Mississippi, Brandon has mixed his phenomenal pop vocal range with a down-home country flair, and found a winning combination.

He has already achieved some national notoriety by becoming the runner-up on Season 2 of CMT’s Can You Duet, and by being hand-picked by Keith Urban as the winner of Guitar Center’s “Your Next Record with Keith Urban”. Subsequently, he recorded songs with legendary producer Dann Huff, and secured an opening spot on Urban’s 2011 tour.

Saturday, September 12th ~ 7:00 PM – 10:30 PM (Doors open at 6:00 PM)

Runaway Home

The band, Runaway Home, is a “homecoming” of sorts. It was founded by three powerhouse singers looking for a road back to the music they grew up on and loved!

Their sound is strong three part harmony over lyrics that matter, wrapped in an acoustic style reminiscent of ‘70’s era radio. You might call them Retro-Commercial-Americana.

Effron White

Effron White is an Arkansas born and raised, award-winning singer/songwriter now residing in Nashville, TN. When you hear Effron, you are immediately struck by the uniqueness of his songs and their delivery. His gravelly vocal brings to mind the likes of Tom Waits, John Prine, or Bob Dylan; yet, there’s a personal earthiness that drives the emotional truth of his songs right into your heart. As a songwriter, Effron draws his influences from those legends of the past who are looked upon as poets as much as songwriters; Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, and Guy Clark.

His skills as a singer/songwriter have resulted in nationwide recognition. Early in his career, Effron won the coveted “New Folk” Award at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival. He has also been honored as a Northwest Arkansas Music Award’s Hall of Fame Artist, as a result of having been voted Best Singer-Songwriter in three previous years. He was featured in American Songwriter Magazine’s Lyric Spotlight for his song, “Long Haul”, a story song about a down and out trucker. The same song won the Billboard Song Contest. He was selected as Nashville Ear’s “Best of the Best (Nashville Songwriter), 2019″. With four albums in the pocket, he is currently working on his latest recording with renowned Americana/Country singer/songwriter and Grammy Winner, Shawn Camp, producing. www.EffronMusic.com
