The Scot and Suzie Show (Scot Sax & Suzie Brown) w/Cariad Harmon at City Tavern Club
Join us for an evening of music, food, and drink at the gorgeous City Tavern Club. The evening includes two live performances (see below for bio), a catered supper, cash bar and dessert, and the opportunity to mingle with the performers.
The Scot and Suzie Show Bio:
Suzie Brown writes songs to process her life. For a singer-songwriter, it's not that unique of a creative impulse. But when you're also a cardiologist, used to being stoic and selfless on the job, the catharsis is even more essential.
"Music is my place to be honest," says Brown. "I can say how I'm really feeling. I like not having to be so strong."
With her gift for unforgettable melodies and evocative lyrics, it's hard to imagine it's been only six years since she penned her first song. In that time, she's been nominated for several Independent Music Awards, named a finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong contest, a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, among other accolades, and had her music featured at Starbucks, The Gap and Anthropologie.
Scot Sax knows his way around a song. He has been writing them for years, whether it was with his own bands Wanderlust and Feel, or as a purveyor of hits for singers like Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. It was Sax, in fact, who co-wrote the country duo's Grammy-winning smash "Like We Never Loved At All." His catchy "I Am the Summertime," penned while with the band Bachelor Number One, was featured in the blockbuster "American Pie." And he's netted countless TV credits, with song placements in shows like "Ghost Whisperer," "NCIS," "CSI: NY" and "Keeping up with the Kardashians."
Brown and Sax met by chance at a mutual friend's wedding. 11 months later they were married. It didn't take long to realize that their chemistry was infectious both on and off the stage, and they have been slowly but surely combining their musical worlds. Sax co-produced Brown's latest album 'Almost There' with Oliver Wood (Wood Brothers). Brown's folk/Americana roots influenced Sax to explore a more raw, stripped down sound on his latest release "I'm in A Mood."
The couple relocated to Nashville in the winter of 2014, and have spent much of this past year co-writing with some of Nashville's finest writers.
Cariad Harmon Bio:
Listening to Cariad Harmon, it's hard to believe that the singer-songwriter spent much of her youth galavanting through the streets of London and dancing until the wee hours of the morning to legendary house and techno DJs at West London's now defunct Club UK. It's not surprising, however, to learn that after the parties were over, Harmon returned home to secretly throw on a Tracy Chapman or Bob Dylan album and strum her acoustic guitar.
Fast forward to 2015, this British songstress, now living in NYC just received a 3.5 star review in Rolling Stone Magazine for her exquisite new folk pop release.
