Sunday, July 16:  Mariah Van Kleef (guitar and vocals) wanted to be a singer for as long as she can remember.  She became interested in the guitar when the legendary Doc Watson told her she had the hands of a musician.  She he played her first gig at the Soda Shop in Greenville, SC and is a regular performer at the Garden Cafe in York, SC.  Mariah has become a local favorite, performing at other local venues as well as private functions.
 
Sunday, July 23:  Danny Scruggs and Crystal Plough (guitar and vocals) are two talented locals who have turned into a performing duo whose voices blend as well as they solo.  You will hear a wide variety of styles of music–pop, folk, Americana, blues, something for everyone.  these two have an easy style and connect well with listeners. Former Cleveland Community College students may remember Danny from the Computer Science faculty where he taught for many years.
 
Sunday: July 30:  David Parker by day is a Professor of English at Gardner-Webb University, but is a very talented and well respected musician as well. He plays  blues-ey/jazzy electric type music with the help of his”imaginary friends,” a looper pedal and other electronic enhancements.    If you listen to David with your eyes closed, you will likely think you are listening to a trio or small group rather than a solo musician.
 
Sunday:  August 6:  Sam Havens (guitar, vocals) had a successful career in the aerospace industry, while maintaining his musical interest and skills.  When he retired, he moved east, picked up his guitar and because a frequent performer in our area.  Sam says his style is influenced by a combination of Leo Kotke, Eric Clapton, Johnny Winters and Ottar Liebert.  Sam’s personal favorites are blues and flamenco.  
 
 
Sunday, August 13:  Alex Davis (keyboard, vocals)  First time at Owl’s Eye.  Alex Davis is a talented, classically trained songwriter and musician with a degree in Music Composition from the University of South Carolina.  A customer earlier this summer heard Alex in Greenville, and suggested we invite him to Owl’s Eye.  Besides composing and performing, Alex has worked live sound and as a recording engineer.  He is part of indie/jazz/outfit “Passing Worth” and the more progressive sounding “Miles to Go.”  Alex has his own style, influenced by fine musicians too numerous to count.  His love of diverse genres of music is infectious.  His lyrics reflect life’s compelling truths, often found in honest inconsistencies.  His first solo album was released in 2010; his second album “Perspectives” will be released this summer.
 
 
 Sunday, August 20:  Angela Easterling (guitar, vocals) is a talented songwriter, vocalist and guitarist who grew up in South Carolina, spending much of her time on the farm that has been in her family since 1791.  A theme of many of her earlier songs is the struggle to hold on to rural property in the face of widespread development.  Her songs have consistently earned top rankings in Americana music charts and one reviewer has said, “…Angela is creating moderate, Southern music for the ages.”  Her family was not musical, but when she picked up a guitar during her first year in college, she was hooked.  After college, she went to Los Angeles to further her career, but ultimately ended up back in South Carolina where her career began and where it has blossomed.  
 
Sunday:  August 27:  Danny Scruggs and Crystal Plough (guitar, vocals) are two talented locals who have turned into a performing duo and whose voices blend as well as they solo.  You will hear a wide variety of styles of music–pop, folk, Americana, blues, vintage jazz, something for everyone.  These two have an easy style and connect well with listeners.
