On a 90-degreee summer evening in Kansas City, The Brick was open for its Thursday evening singer songwriter showcase. This Thursday night featured Camilla Camille and David George who performed for a crowd of about 50 people including Slim Hanson, Michael Byers and the showcase’s beloved producer, Patrick Devany.
Starting off the evening was Camilla Camille. With a diminutive frame and an expressive, upbeat and assertive voice, Miss Camille delivered a fun and intellectually stimulating set of punk inspired folk songs that were backed by clean bar chords and her vibrant and infectious personality that just took us all to a happier place.
Next up was rock and roll veteran, David George. Strapped with an acoustic guitar and blues harp, David opened up with a beautifully constructed folk ballad reminiscent of early Neil Young. Gorgeous guitar strumming with precise yet fluid picking makes this artist absolutely delightful to experience live. Soulful vocals add an even richer texture his emotive and personal lyrics.
Sneaking in the door for the open mic was none other than The Clementines. I just can’t say enough about this young duo. Very sophisticated guitar picking backing up one of the most beautiful voices in KC. Love these guys so much!
Join this hip, cool crowd next week for another singer songwriter showcase, 7pm Thursdays. See y’all there!
