‘Tween Waters to host weekend music celebration for resort guests
‘Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa on Captiva will host its third annual Captivaville Songwriters Weekend on June 18-20, featuring singer-songwriters from Florida and Nashville, Tennessee.
Free and open to resort guests, the event can be enjoyed through specially-priced weekend packages available at https://tween-waters.com/captivaville/ or by calling in-house reservations at 800-223-5865.
The lineup includes Sheena Brook, Kayley Bishop, Brian Sutherland, Trick Savage and Will Jones.
Brook is a recording artist and songwriter with the ability to draw in her audience with captivating lyrics and charisma — whether that is country, rock, pop or her own compositions or original takes on today’s hits. A native of Fort Myers, she appeared on NBC’s “The Voice,” where she was picked by Adam Levine to be on his team. With national exposure of her talents, Brook has gained the attention of multi-platinum songwriters and other artists to further her creativity in her unique style — and has teamed with Nashville and Florida singer-songwriters to expand her repertoire and performances.
Take a hint of bluegrass, bit of playful rockabilly, touch of soul and dash of storytelling, cook it up together and garnish it with a modern twist, and you will have Bishop. Her sound has been compared to Jewel, Dolly Parton and Stevie Nicks, while incorporating her own fresh take on country music. Bishop loves blending the old with the new, finding inspiration from the artists who were trailblazers in country music of the past. From season 15 of “The Voice,” she is in the works of recording her next project with Grammy-nominated producer Eric Torres.
Sutherland is an acoustic songwriter living in Nashville. His brand of Americana has a certain pop and jazz influence that makes his music timeless and relevant. Sutherland writes about love, loss, victories and defeats, and how leaning into one’s heart is always the best way forward. He honed his craft on the shores of Southwest Florida. Sutherland has been selected to perform at the Island Hopper Songwriting Festival, Key West Songwriters Festival, Dripping Springs Songwriters Festival, String Break Music Festival, Riverhawk Music Festival and Druid City Songwriters Festival.
Savage is a lifetime music professional, and Grammy-nominated songwriter hailing from Oklahoma, a place he calls the “ground zero of country music greatness.” Savage is an in-demand sideman and session guitarist and, as an ad music guy, has written and produced music for clients from ESPN, TBN and WGN to Levis, Sonic Drive-in and even presidential candidates. As a songwriter, he has had cuts with Eric Church, Ashley McBryde, Dan Smalley, Trisha Yearwood and more.
Jones has lived and breathed all things country since he was half the height to a hound dog. Beginning his music career at just 6 years of age, Jones started performing with his family’s traveling bluegrass band, The Cana Ramblers, and would go on to garner national notoriety for their final album release in 2009, “No Expectations.” He is now a full-time songwriter and musician in Nashville.
CDC guidelines will be followed for the event.
