01/18 - Mark DeRose and Widad

at The Abbey Bar at Appalachian Brewing Company

Mark DeRose

Doors: 09:00 PM Starts: 09:30 PM - $7 cover

Mark DeRose:

If James Taylor and Dave Matthews spent a night together getting
juiced up on pop rock, their “musical love child” would be Mark
DeRose! Patrick Kirchner of The Fly describes this engaging music
as “thoughtful and provocative, laden with metaphors of hope and
celebration for life – the stuff that makes feel good music feel so
good.”

According to Michael Lessner of Live Nation, “Mark’s music is
definitely going in the right direction.” Just like many first-time
listeners, Lessner was “pleasantly surprised and ready to hear more!”

One appreciative fan summed it up by saying, “There is an honesty to
his work that is so easy to connect with.  Whether it be the solid and
intelligent lyrics or the intensity with which he pours himself into
his live shows, the listener can easily relate to the emotions
expressed in the songs.”

 

 

Widad:

Widad is as unique as they come; a red headed, Midwestern roots girl, with a middle eastern name & influence who is weaving folk, rock, rhythm & mysticism into a mixed up cup of spicy tea, with a raspy voice, growls thrown in for good measure, a big scoop of longing & pop sensible, Nashville songwriting.

Widad (pronounced ‘WIH*dod’), has battled some demons. Not the demons of drugs, abuse or self-loathing. Along her travels through musicianship she has had to determine whether to conform to the prosaic formula of the singer-songwriter or prominently display the middle finger of the washed-up ‘good-ol-days’ rocker. Thankfully, she has chosen neither. Instead, she mixes the melancholy mystery of life’s endless questions with the joy and simple pleasure of answers when they are found. Her music allows the listener to experience a space in time where one gives up trying to uncover and live within the secret of happiness and embraces their sublime slice of singularity. Beware, demons of peace dwell there!
