August 25th Showcase:

A deeper look into some of the artist from our August 25th Showcase:

Andy Starkey, age 22, has been playing music since the ripe age of 8. Her first love was the piano, which was taught to her by her beloved grandmother for a number of years. She began playing the guitar when she received her first acoustic at age 13, and is majorly self-taught. She writes all of her own music and lyrics. Andy is currently attending the University of Central Florida in Orlando, FL, pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Art History. But above all, she looks forward to embracing the world of musical performance!
Danny Leggett, a Twenty-five-year-old singer/songwriter describes his music as “acoustic pop hidden behind folk curtains;” a description fitting for his catchy melodies embedded in honest, intimate lyrics and folk accompaniment. When Leggett’s family made the move from Orlando, FL to Boone, NC, Leggett brushed off his dad’s old classical guitar during his sophomore year of high school and taught himself how to work his way around the steel-stringed instrument. By 2007, he re-rooted back in Orlando, picked up the banjo and began gaining attention while playing local venues. In 2010, Leggett released his debut EP entitled “New Years Eve P.” It was this EP that landed him a gig writing an original track for the major motion picture “Renee” starring Kat Dennings, Chad Michael Murray and Rupert Friend. Leggett will be featured in the film with an on-screen musical performance of his song “The Valley.”
