Taylor Barton and GE Smith have been writing and performing together for 30 years. Barton met the Emmy winning Smith when she was dancing in a cameo, at SNL where Smith was bandleader for ten years. They fell in love on the set of 8H, and Smith encouraged her to go public with her music. She has created a distinctive body of work and has earned many awards that established her as the distinguished songwriter she is today. She penned her first song on Dylan’s tour bus, where she learned her craft, while absorbing over 200 shows, when Smith was Dylan’s sideman. This acoustic duo, is a must see. A different side of Smith emerges, and there is nothing more intimate then hearing two people who are so viscerally connected. Barton will release her tenth collection, House of Light—a soulful, original and introspective record. ( Nov. 9th) Rolling Stone calls Barton beguiling and says, “she writes of beauty and grace in a sullied world.” Be prepared to be moved and altered by this show. They will be appearing at many venues late fall, and early 2019. www.taylorbarton.com
Singer/songwriter Bruce Henderson debuted as a solo artist in 1997 with the The Wheels Roll, released on Omad/Paradigm. His second solo effort, Beyond the Pale, was released to wide critical acclaim in 1999 on Valley Entertainment in the US and various independent labels in Europe. Henderson toured extensively behind the album and appeared as musical guest on Late Night with David Letterman.
In 2000, Henderson took an extended break from recording and touring. He is currently working on his next release.
Praise for Beyond The Pale from All Music Guide
Beyond the Pale is the sort of album that demands close scrutiny, especially lyrical scrutiny. The bent is decidedly rootsy and country-rockish, but Henderson seems more influenced by Bob Dylan (and, consequently, Woody Guthrie) than his commercial country-pop brethren, which is not to say that he eschews pop altogether. Beyond the Pale is full of melodies with teeth.
