Outpost in the Burbs lineup features Jesse Terry.
Outpost in the Burbs has planned a great lineup for their show coming this weekend, May 15, with Jesse Terry, Rebecca Loebe, Abbie Gardner and Tracy Grammer.
According to the Outpost in the Burbs website, “Jesse Terry is an internationally touring, award-winning singer-songwriter whose intimacy with audiences, sincerity and approachability has solidified him as a favorite at festivals and live venues nationwide. With three full-length albums, The Runner, Empty Seat On A Plane, and Stay Here With Me, this salt of the earth musician’s lyrical mastery, emotional depth, and soothing voice have often been compared to the likes of Ryan Adams, Jackson Browne, Josh Ritter, and James Taylor, reaching deep into listeners’ hearts to envelope them in shared joy, sadness, love, and unrelenting hope.
“Rebecca Loebe is a laid-back award-winning indie-folk singer from Atlanta, GA. Since quitting her job as a full-time recording studio engineer in 2006, she has performed 100+ shows per year at colleges, coffeehouses and theaters in over 30 states of the US and in Europe. In the spring of 2011, her performance on the US premiere of The Voice impressed celebrity coaches Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine, prompting them both to ask her to work with them.
“Best known as one-third of the female harmony Americana trio Red Molly, Abbie Gardner has listened to the sweet sound of high lonesome harmonies since her first bluegrass festival at three years old. Her 2006 release Honey on My Grave was her first independently released CD of mostly original music spanning varied genres with consistently strong Dobro, guitar, and vocal performances. Abbie 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 “I’d Rather Be”. Her song “Honey on My Grave” was also published in Sing Out! Magazine in 2008.
“Tracy Grammer is an American folk singer known for her work as half of the folk duo Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer and for the solo career that she has continued since Carter’s death. She has continued to tour solo and has released three solo albums The Verdant Mile, Flower of Avalon and Book of Sparrows.”
