Abbie Gardner - Americana Dobroist Singer/Songwriter
Official Site / Facebook
Abbie Gardner, the fiery Dobro player with an infectious smile has been touring with Americana darlings Red Molly for the past eleven years. After gracing stages from Denver to Denmark, from Australia to Austin, the band decided to take an indefinite hiatus in 2015, so Abbie is striking out on her own! No stranger to solo performing, she has three CDs to draw from, each with award-winning songs. Tales of love and loss, both gritty and sweet, ride the back of her by-now familiar, formidable slide guitar licks. She channels Lucinda and Bonnie, but remains pure Abbie. She has been recognized as an award-winning songwriter, as well, with such accolades as; 2008 Lennon Award Winner (folk) for The Mind of a Soldier and 2008 American Songwriter Magazine Grand Prize Lyric Winner for Id Rather Be. Her song Honey on My Grave was also published in Sing Out! Magazine in 2008.
Jon Paul, a Berklee College of Music graduate, studied songwriting and guitar performance, but has been involved with music all of his life. Growing up with a severe stammer as a child, music was his only way to escape the trapped feeling of not being able to communicate what he wanted to say. Jon Paul has been pleasing audiences everywhere from all around the Northeast, Texas and England with his unique approach to songwriting. His debut EP is a launching pad for a musician that wont be going anywhere for a while, music is one of the most important things in my life. As long as Im alive, Ill still be writing.
