Album Release and Showcase Highlight: Courtney Hall
My album release show is September 14th at the Rino in North Kansas City.
Beforehand, 7 of my favorite female Kansas City songwriters will be showcasing their incredible music with 2-3 songs.
I met Courtney at the Homegrown Buzz Showcase at the Power and Light Center this last fall. I was playing, then, with my band American Slim drumming and singing. We had just released “Queen of Hearts” as a single that same day, and my anticipation to play it was building throughout the day. I got there an hour and a half before downbeat to set-up my kit and soundcheck, only to be greeted by the friendliest of smiles and a Hello from none other than Ms. Courtney Hall! I’ve played music professionally in venues all across Kansas City and the Midwest for 6 years, and Courtney was the first female sound-woman I ever had. In that moment I knew she was special and unique, and when I found out she was a musician also I knew I wanted to have her play my album release.
Attached is a video for my album release September 14, with Courtney playing a portion of a song – catch the rest at the show! Along with these amazing women that night I will be playing with my band, have physical copies of my album, and merch to share.
Come be a part of this experience! Doors: 7pm | Show: 8pm | $5
