BRIGITTE DeMEYER & WILL KIMBROUGH
Brigitte has become a master storyteller about the South through her bluesy gospel-tinged vocals and literary imagery. Accompanied by her own acoustic steel and slide guitar with adept finger-picking, has mesmerized her audiences from coast to coast. Her partnership with Will Kimbrough has added a whole other dimension to the music that already reeked with a deep southern flavor. She and Will let you know that life is more than just a destination, it’s a journey.
Whether opening solo for Bob Dylan, Greg Allman or being accompanied by the Mcrary Sisters, Buddy Miller and Brady Blade each song and each album is filled with Soul-infused stories.
Will is a Nashville based singer songwriter who is called “a modern day renaissance man” due to having so many projects going at all times. He is totally comfortable in a wide variety of musical genres.
Kimbrough was voted Americana instrumentalist of the year in 2004 by the Americana Music Association, He has worked extensively as lead guitarist with Emmy Lou Harris, Todd Snider and Rodney Crowell and his songs have been recorded by Jimmy Buffet and Little Feat and many others.
200 nights a year on the road performing and recording sessions leave no blank spaces on his calendar, but he wouldn’t have it any other way.
Brigitte Demeyer and Will Kimbrough are touring extensively since the release of their new duets album this Fall.
INTRODUCING LILLY WINWOOD
Born in Nashville, TN, in September of 1995, but spending her formative years raised in England, Lilly Winwood has always shown a strong aptitude for music having started playing guitar at age nine and performing in the school choir.
Lilly’s voice simmers somewhere between Soul and Americana. This is hardly surprising given her father is the British musician, Steve Winwood, known for his ‘Blue-Eyed Soul’ vocals. Like her father, Lilly has the same innate ability to pick up a musical instrument and connect with It. She plays guitar, keyboards, pedal steel, and slide guitar.
Now, currently living in Nashville, Lilly is a Singer/ Songwriter in her own right. Carving out a career as a professional musician, she performs regularly around Nashville as well as dates in the wider United States and UK, most recently the Main Stage of the 30A Songwriters Festival in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida as well as opening two Sold Out nights at The Fillmore for her dad.
Lilly’s music draws on a range of influences from Blues & Soul to Americana. Tedeschi Trucks Band, Bonnie Raitt, John Mayer, Iron And Wine are cited as having an impact on her. Lilly pays tribute to Tedeschi Trucks with a cover of ‘Midnight In Harlem’ during her performance at the Riverside Theatre, Milwaukee. Her recent version of Steve Winwood’s ‘Higher Love’ can be heard supporting the current ‘My Dad’ National Ad Campaign for Hershey’s chocolate.
