HANNAH MILLER AND JESSICA CAMPBELL FEATURED ON OCTOBER ACOUSTIC NIGHT
(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) Vocalists Hannah Miller and Jessica Campbell will be featured in a performance on Acoustic Night on Sunday, Oct. 12, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bama Theatre. Presented by The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa, the project features both solo and ensemble performances of a wide range of acoustic music throughout the calendar year in the intimate setting of the theatre’s Greensboro Room. Cover charge is $5 with a full service bar available.
A native of Dothan, Ala., Hannah Miller left home after graduating from high school to attend Mars Hill College. She and husband James then moved to Columbia, S.C. where she begin her music career. Seven years later, they moved to Nashville, Tenn., where they now reside. Her literate style blends blues, folk and gospel which, when led by her disarmingly intimate alto, feel immediately familiar and compelling. Numerous magazines and blogs have taken note with reviewers referencing such as names as Neko Case, Feist, Rachel Yamagata, Liz Phair, Brandi Carlile and Basia Bulat. She has held her own when opening for Langhorne Slim, Landon Pigg, Elizabeth Cook, Josh Joplin and Shannon Whitworth and has cultivated a passionate following around the country.
Jessica Campbell was born in Catawba, North Carolina, where she grew up singing gospel, country and show tunes and also participating in competitions. She recalls singing the National Anthem at ballparks, rodeos, gyms, football stadiums and anywhere else that would host her. “There weren’t many concert opportunities in my hometown, so I made the most out of what was around,” she says. She attended college and graduate school at Middle Tennessee State University outside of Nashville while continuing her musical journey writing songs, recording, performing at Dollywood, singing song demos, leading music at church and touring. Her three albums, “III,” “The Anchor” and the “Sail and Great Escape,” have achieved widespread acclaim.
