Canyon & Joe Robinson Set for Palace Theatre's Showcase 61 Series this Month
After two successful Showcase 61 performances, the new series for emerging artists in the Upper Lobby at Stamford's Palace Theatre rolls on with Canyon on October 17th and 2008 Australia's Got Talent winner Joe Robinson on October 25th. Food will be provided at no charge by Fiesta Atlantic Restaurant, and the cash bar will feature four "Oktoberfest" beers (Goose Island Harvest Ale, Bluepoint Octoberfest, Thomas Hooker Octoberfest, Thomas Hooker IPA) in addition to wine and soda. The series is generously sponsored by the Hampton Inn & Suites in Stamford. Both performances begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at www.SCAlive.org.
Currently hailing from Connecticut, Canyon is a 28 year old vocal powerhouse. She is known by those that have seen her perform to be a captivating singer/songwriter with haunting and heart-wrenchingly honest songs. Performing with just an acoustic guitar, her catchy vocal melodies will immediately grab your attention while the intimate lyrics and stories she tells will keep your ears guessing. Known for performing with an intensely raw passion and conviction, her sound will cut you deep and hit a nerve.
Joe Robinson plays guitar like Ali boxed, like Einstein knew theoretical physics and like Hitchcock made movies. The gifted young virtuoso and 2008 winner of Australia's Got Talent has defined himself as a budding pop-world visionary, deftly walking a tightrope between the instrumental music that put him in the spotlight and a unique fusion of vocally based rock, blues, jazz, country and R&B that's entirely his own.
