This weekend I went to an open mic event in Annapolis. It featured a live band, and a painting artist. I love live bands. The event was open to spoken word artists (poets, lyricists, rappers,) and singers and featured a painter working throughout the entire show. There were several stand out performances. My favorite was a brilliant singer/songwriter from Baltimore by the name of Christen B. Her voice can be heard on Sound Cloud and her Acoustic Soul sound is a cool blend of Yael Naim and India Aire. I can’t wait to hear more of what she has to offer.
