ExploreGeorgia.org Songwriter Series - Savannah
11/9/17 - 11/9/17 8:00PM - 10:00PM

On Nov. 9, the fifth concert in the 2017 ExploreGeorgia.org Songwriter Series heads to Trinity Church in Savannah for performances by Anthony David, Lulu the Giant and Kristina Train.

Born in Savannah but based in Atlanta, R&B singer/songwriter Anthony David, a veteran who counts President Barack Obama among his fans, has released six critically acclaimed albums, including 2016's The Powerful Now. Early in his career, he worked closely with India.Arie, who included his song "Part of My Life" on her multi-platinum selling debut album Acoustic Soul, and the pair continued to write and tour together. In 2008, their duet, "Words," was nominated for a Grammy.

Rolling Stone described Kristina Train as a "smoky voice impassioned enough to floor Bruce Springsteen, Dr. Dre, and Herbie Hancock alike; as well as nomadic enough to nail soul, jazz, hip-hop and roots music." She's recorded for Blue Note and Mercury, lived in New York, London and Nashville, and returns to her hometown of Savannah to share her confessional songs, which draw from the roots of country, soul, gospel, blues, jazz and folk.

Singer, songwriter and upright bassist Rachel Shaner, aka Lulu the Giant, will perform her songs in a rare solo format. Classically trained, she notes that Savannah's diverse cultural landscape inspires and informs her writing, whether Southern folk, sultry blues or Zeppelin-esque rock. Lulu the Giant released the album "Kingdoms Fall" earlier this year.

The ExploreGeorgia.org Songwriter Series takes place in six cities across the state from August through November, promoting the state as a destination for live music and music heritage. Other participating cities include Augusta, Athens, LaGrange, Rome and Valdosta.
