I am very much looking forward to my first headlining show at the River Club Music Hall in Scituate. It is a great room. In the past year I have been lucky enough to open for some great artists there (David Wilcox, Les Sampou, Ellis Paul), so when it came time to choose an opener I wanted to do something special and connected to the community. In my years teaching at Berklee, I have had many talented students come through my songwriting classes. Two of these students happen to be from the South Shore and Cape area, so I thought it would be fun to have them come as special guests and have each one of them do a set. So I am thrilled to announce that Kate Cameron and Carly Tefft will be joining me at the River Club on December 7th.

Here is a brief introduction to each one of them.

Kate Cameron

20-year-old Kate Cameron has a soulful country flair with a driven Boston edge. She is best known for her energetic and unique live performances, as well as her instinctive songwriting ability. Growing up on the South Shore of Massachusetts, she sang everything from acoustic singer/songwriter to pop, classic rock and blues and self taught herself guitar, keyboard and mandolin. Kate CameronAt age 16 she found an interest in country music and realized it was the perfect genre to infuse many styles as well as showcase her songwriting talent and powerful chops. Since 2011 Kate has been averaging over 50 shows each year. She is hired by Country 102.5 WKLB Boston to perform and host many promotional events. Her ability to entertain large venues and eclectic audiences with just her voice, guitar and personality is an impressive experience.

Carly Tefft

At just 20, Carly Tefft, “The singer-songwriter phenomenon from Cape Cod,” as stated by The Boston Globe has hit the ground running, releasing her sophomore album “Tell It All”, recorded at the renowned Darkhorse Studios (Nashville, TN). As a singer/song writer, Tefft creates an alternative sound all her own. She refuses to settle on one genre and writes with her blend of folk, rock, and pop-a la Carole King, Grace Potter, and Sheryl Crow.Carly Tefft by Dan CutronaHer recent resume of performances include the Bluebird Café (Nashville,TN) as well as Club Passim (Cambridge, MA). If the Berklee College of Music student’s honest lyrics, full voice and rhythmic guitar skills don’t grab your attention, her red hair just might.
