About The Show
Crooning voices, soulful guitars, and rollicking pianos bring heartfelt lyrics and magical melodies to life in the brand-new Peace Voices Songwriters Concert Series. Led by Greenville favorite Edwin McCain and accomplished songwriter Maia Sharp, each concert brings a new guest singer-songwriter to the Upstate for a one-of-kind performance. Join us this season in Genevieve’s theater lounge for this intimate listening room experience.
“Fueled by brilliantly articulate guitar, an honestly pretty baritone, and deft lyrics, David Wilcox combines the best of both pop and modern folk aesthetics” (The Boston Globe). Considered a songwriter's songwriter, Wilcox was first inspired to play the guitar in college and is now 20 records into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans. “He can carry any issue of significance to him straight into a listeners heart” (LA Weekly), and he takes audiences on a musical journey that is “compelling and richly deserving of a listen” (Rolling Stone).
Called the “great American romantic” by The New York Times, Edwin McCain has built an enviable career over the past 20 years. His enduring love songs and wedding must-haves “I’ll Be” and “I Could Not Ask For More” have become two of the biggest love songs in the history of pop music. 2018 marks the 20th year of the hugely popular “I’ll Be,” which topped the Billboard charts in 1998 and has proven to be a timeless classic over the past two decades. After recording his mega hits and experiencing the success that comes with a television show (Flipping Ships), McCain now performs upwards of 100 shows annually throughout the US.
Maia Sharp wears many hats. She has had her songs recorded by The Dixie Chicks, Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, Keb’ Mo’, Cher, Edwin McCain, and Art Garfunkel. She produced McCain's album Mercy Bound and, most recently, two songs for Garfunkel's retrospective double album, The Singer. Sharp has six solo releases, and her latest duo project is Roscoe & Etta, with writing/production partner Anna Schulze. Each release has led to extensive touring throughout the US and UK, and appearances on Mountain Stage, Acoustic Cafe, World Cafe, NPR's All Things Considered, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today.
