Amanda Winterhalter, Nick Droz, and Allison Preisinger
June 22, 2017 –
Join us for an evening of country and folk influenced singer-songwriters at Studio Bob in Port Angeles! Each performer has a set specially planned to share with attendees for the evening.
Writing and performing music is where Amanda feels most at home and in her element. Its on the stage where she finds her most powerful means to connect with people through sound and story. As she studied literature and creative writing, eventually earning a graduate degree in teaching English, stories began to fuel her songwriting: stories passed down from voices and pages and traditions; stories of experience. Her songs balance on the indefinite edges of the unavoidable aches in life, of desire and flirtation, of the beauty of all the uncomfortable paradoxes we carry. Amanda recently won first place in the Jane Titland Songwriting Contest at the Tumbleweed Music Festival for her love song Shirt. Her debut album, Olea, released in November 2016, presents her range of styles from Americana gothic to grit rock.
From Wisconsin by way of Austin, TX, now residing in Seattle, WA, Nick Droz slings extra catchy Americana music.
Northwest musicians and fans have described Seattle singer-songwriter Allison Preisingers music as raw and honest. Her folk rock style of writing and performances provide a combination of the sincerity of an unplugged Eric Clapton with the melodic poetry of a solo Joni Mitchell.
