Songwriters-3

Songwriters in the Round w/ Jeff Austin, Sage Cook (We Dream Dawn), and Andrew Sturtz

Sunday, August 6th: 4:15 – 5:15pm
Big Sunrise Dome

The focus is on the song in this intimate dialogue and performance by and with these ARISE favorites.

Jeff Austin has returned to the scene with a new found sense of passion after almost twenty years of live creation and endless joy seeking. Sharing the stage each night with his band of like-minded adventurers he attacks each performance with a fire and desire to move and shake everyone in sight.

Sage Cook, founding member of WE DREAM DAWN and Elephant Revival, is a musician, rancher, permaculture gardener, and, like all humans, is first and foremost an artist. Sage’s songwriting serves as a conduit for stories about natural cycles, Love, loss, struggle, and most of all, hope. Weaving together poignant melodies and words plucked from the Aethers, he addresses some of the issues foremost in our collective consciousness all the while having as much fun as possible!

Andrew Sturtz garners comparisons to Amos Lee, Martin Sexton, and others with a mixture of soul, folk, and pop. For over 15 years, Andrew has performed throughout many venues within the Michigan and the Chicago area. Though, after taking a break from live performance in 2014, Andrew is picking up where he left off in his new home of Colorado. Reinvigorated by a vibrant music community in Boulder, CO, an album is in the works for Summer of 2017.
