The Maine Songwriters Association continues its spring program of songwriters on stage at Frontier in Brunswick with a new episode for May.
Songwriters on Stage showcases some of the state’s top songwriters and up-and-coming talent in one of Maine’s best listening rooms. May’s Songwriters on Stage lineup includes Stan Davis, Halley Elwell, Dan Pelletier and Andrew Thomas.
Named “artist to have on your radar in 2022” by Maine Edge’s Mike Dow, Halley Elwell’s music “provokes nostalgia, but also stands out for her fantastic vocals and well-crafted lyrics” (Aimsel Ponti, Portland Press Herald) . His 2021 EP, “The Last of What I Know,” pays homage to the sounds of late 1960s and 1970s songwriters and was streamed on 207’s WCLZ Music and WERU.
Dan Pelletier has received 15 national songwriting awards and honors, including first prize at the 2002 United States Songwriting Competition for lyrics. “..charged with equal parts pain, hope and humor – touch the tender, secret corners of your soul.” – Marilyn Rea Beyer, former director of the WUMB radio program, Boston.
