Roots in the Round, multi-songwriter feature LIVE at Canopy + the Roots
February 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Onyx Echelon 85 Enterprises & Canopy & the Roots are coming together to bring a unique take of the “Songwriters in a Round” Showcase to the Gold City as we present “Roots in the Round.” Join us on Saturday, February 10th as Jayna Jennings, the Broken String Band, Mannequin Party, Perfect Animal, and Caroline Coleman will be coming together in the intimate speakeasy listening room, better known as The Roots, as they weave through their stories of success, heartache, and everything in between behind their songs with the strings of authenticity playing a melody that will bring it all together for an unforgettable listening experience. Doors at 7PM, Show at 7:30PM.
Only 2% of the population are redheads and Jayna Jennings, three-time Josie Music Award winner, makes music as unique as her fiery hair. Jayna pulls you into her world with her emotive songwriting, a craft she has been honing for the past 11 years. Her newest album, Southern Gothic Romance, set to release later this year, showcases her most vibrant storytelling yet, cementing herself as a rooted songwriter and a force to be reckoned with in country/Folk. Southern Gothic Romance was the first single from this new project and Jayna was able to release her first music video for it. The album is a visual album, so every song will be released with compatible videos and poems alike. She had her first glimpse at international recognition, when all eight songs from her first album received world-wide radio airplay. She has earned several nominations for prestigious awards, and has received the honor of Folk/Americana Vocalist of the Year at the Josie Music Awards three years in a row. This year she is nominated in six categories and is excited to walk the red carpet at The Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, TN.
The Broken String Band
Hailing from the Classic City – Athens, GA – the Broken String Band is redefining what it means to play folk music. With a live performance that combines alluring, hard-hitting lyricism and iconic harmonies with thrashing banjo, stand-up bass, fiddle, drums, and the occasional accordion or flute, the Broken String Band encapsulates the feel-good vibe of acoustic jamming with a dash of classical culture thrown in for good measure. Though the group fits the appearance of a traditional folk act as they take stage, great surprise lies in their unexpectedly electrifying style of performing. They’ve got the touch and sincerity from the likes of the Everly Brothers mixed with the grunt and grime of any classic rock & roll band.
Mannequin Party is an alternative musician hailing from Athens, GA. His music is a funky, fingerstyle amalgamation of folk, indie rock, Americana, and jazz, and features elusive chord progressions and rhythms paired with hypnotic melodies.
What do you get when you blend shoegaze guitar leads and introspective lyrics? The answer is Perfect Animal. Formed in April 2022, Eric Peters (vocals /guitar), Alex Dauer (bass), Justin Stoks (drums), and David Burger (guitar) came together with one goal in mind: to take listeners on a sonic journey that transcends all genre boundaries. Drawing inspiration from influential artists such as The Cure, Mac Demarco, and Snail Mail, Perfect Animal personifies the DIY attitude in both their musical and visual storytelling. From producing their own music videos to recording their music in-house, each release is crafted to create an immersive and authentic experience for the listener – and this experience continues to take new shapes and colors as the band continues to grow.
Caroline Coleman is a motorcycle-riding acoustic singer/songwriter from Northeast Georgia drawing on influences from Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, Patti Smith and more.
