A unique duo with deceptively simple instrumentation. Their jazzy, funky and sultry sound is truly memorable and enjoyable.

Singer-songwriter and producer Tshila was born in Kampala, Uganda. Inspired by the influence she could have through music, she taught herself to play guitar and started to experiment with her own sound. She recorded and self-produced her first album, Sipping From the Nile in 2006. The album gained recognition from music critics around the world. In 2007, the BBC World Service conducted a talent search and named her one of the 20 best unsigned artists in the world.

July 31 (6:30pm): Lauren Davidson
CMA artist Lauren Davidson is an NYC/NJ based urban country singer-songwriter with one powerful voice. Small in stature, but big in inner strength, Lauren was described as “an early Patsy Cline or Linda Ronstadt; that I can do this myself attitude” by Audio Fuzz Magazine. And do it herself she certainly can.
