Q: It's a concert? In your high-rise condo? With professional singer/songwriters from Nashville and around the country?
Q: What typically happens at one of your house concerts?
A: Guests with reservations to the show start arriving at my building an hour before the show begins. They bring a suggested cash donation per person and a dish of food to share with everyone. Drinks are BYOB. Food and conversation last until show time. The lights go down at show time, everyone takes a seat, and the music begins. It is a Listening Room Environment. The person on stage gets all of the attention. Phones are put away. The audience is silent during the songs. Clap. Laugh. Cry. Just don't chat during the show. Hang out after the show to buy merchandise from the artists, get pictures and autographs, have some more food, and have fun. Then go home and tell all your friends about how much fun you had.
“Rising singer-songwriter Sam Lewis had nothing to do with the press release where he is called a “Modern Day Townes Van Zandt.” But, he tells Billboard that he appreciates the term – and lays credit for it to one of Country Music’s biggest stars.”
