Our monthly showcase!

The Showcase w/ Steve Patterson featuring Corty Byron
Music for Everyone, Steve Patterson, and Tellus360 are excited to bring you the 2015 season of The Showcase!
The art of the Singer Songwriter is featured in this unique series that brings artist and audience together to enjoy new, original music in an intimate, listening-room setting. This year we will feature nine songwriters in the headliner spot January through September. They will be competing for one of four spots in a sing-off competition to be held in October. The four artists who bring in the biggest audiences for their headliner event will make it to the finals, and there, the audience will vote for their favorites!
Thanks to a generous grant from Sid and Jan, the artists who make the sing-off will be competing for substantial cash prizes.
We expect that October 21 show to be sold out. Proceeds will benefit Music for Everyone.
Our July featured artist is Corty Byron
Guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Corty Byron has been active as a musician for over a decade. He released two solo projects (2011‘s Histrionic EP & 2010‘s Endless North),and will be releasing his brand new CD at this New Year’s Eve party! He has opened for/performed with artists like Gregg Allman, The Doobie Brothers, Dave Mason, Bruce Hornsby, The Gin Blossoms, Blackberry Smoke, Hot Tuna, Jimmy Vivino…. and has become a fixture on the Central Pennsylvania music scene, as well as being a seasoned road hound, gigging his way from Manhattan to Memphis, Austin to Vegas and all points in between. In late 2011 Corty relocated to Venice, CA, and spent the following year performing up and down the coast and across the state, including venues such as The Viper Room, House Of Blues and Saint Rocke. His style has shifted from swampy vintage rock and soulful acoustic based Americana to song driven psychedelic indie pop/rock.
