Nashville Night at Bird – October 24
Bird is proud to present Nashville Night with Sheridan Gates, Jenny Teator and Meg Williams! Join us in supporting the arts as we host this special show featuring three singer-songwriters touring across the country.
Sheridan Gates is bringing a new sound to country pop. Originally from NJ, Sheridan Gates made the move to Nashville in 2016 to pursue her passion for music. Her song “Girl Like Me” won her a spot in the local Nashville finals of the 2017 Nash Next competition and she recently returned from a house concert tour of the East Coast. She will be continuing her house concert tour all around the West Coast this fall as she releases her much-awaited EP. It will include the four singles that are available now plus two bonus tracks. Sheridan is a country pop artist influenced by the rock ‘n’ roll storytelling of Carrie Underwood, the soulfulness of Sara Bareilles, and the bold attitude of Shania Twain to create an entirely new, relatable and reflective sound.
Jenny Teator is a St. Louis native who’s made her move to Nashville, sharing her soul through her guitar and vocals. Performing for over a decade, Teator’s music shows her strength and confidence both in solo shows and collaborations, or when she performed with her long-term group Jenny Teator and the Fevers – a sexy blues/rock band that rocked Columbia, Missouri for years. Inspired by singers Grace Potter, ZZ Ward and Susan Tedeschi, Teator has a very straight-forward lyrical style and the music follows the feelings of those words verbatim.
Meg Williams, originally from Western NY, performs frequently at respected Writer’s Nights and numerous venues with her band, Meg Williams Band, as a solo/duo act, and as a guitarist for other artists. She’s performed at RedGorilla Music Festival in Austin, TX, the 2016 Nashville Blues Challenge, Summer NAMM Re-Axe booth, Knoxville’s WDVX Blue Plate Special & Loretta Lynn’s Ranch as an artist, and performed at Cheyenne Frontier Days, CMA Fest, and the Tennessee Motorcycles & Music Revival Festival as a guitarist for other artists. Meg’s newest blues-rock EP, ‘Maybe Someday,’ has been played on SiriusXM’s Bluesville and radio stations world-wide – ‘Maybe Someday’ reached #10 on the Top 50 Blues Rock Album charts and on the Roots Music Report, and #38 on the Top Blues Album charts. Often compared to Susan Tedeschi and Bonnie Raitt, Meg’s guitar playing has captured the attention of listeners throughout Nashville and increasingly the US.
