“The Kami Lyle Sit-A-While, real songs, real writers, fake fireplace”
Join Cape Cod’s own multi-talented singer-songwriter, Kami Lyle, for a series of unique evenings in 2014 with her favorite singer- songwriters from around the country. Kami will be hosting each round introducing her fans and friends to wonderful artist-performers in a relaxed Cape Cod living room setting, fake fireplace and all. Kami, with her house bandmates Joey Spampinato (founding member of NRBQ) and Tad Price, (Steve Forbert’s 35th Anniversary Tour guitarist) will welcome nationally renowned singer songwriters. The special guests have toured the country as performers and their songs have been recorded by Kathy Mattea, Martina McBride, Lee Ann Womack, Trisha Yearwood, Keith Urban, Maura O’Connell & Susan Werner. These artists have also collaborated with Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jonatha Brooke, Shawn Colvin, John Jennings, Lyle Lovett, Bela Fleck, Nickel Creek, David Wilcox, Emmylou Harris and too many others to mention. Mountain Stage, Austin City Limits, & The White House have hosted some of these talented songwriters.
Susan Cattaneo has been a songwriting professor at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music for 13 years. She’s written songs covered by numerous artists in Nashville, and her tunes helped launch the careers of Jillian Cardanelli and Erica Nicole. Cattaneo, the singer-songwriter, has released three albums of mostly upbeat, catchy pop-country music, “Brave and Wild,” in 2009, “Heaven to Heartache” in 2011 and “Little Blue Sky” in 2012. You’ll hear a blend of country, rock and soul with sparkles of blues and folk – music that would slide into the comfort zone for fans of Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter or Sheryl Crow. Cattaneo’s life is a mixture of teaching, writing and recording in Nashville, gigging around Boston, occasional touring, and raising a family in Medford, just north of Boston. “I’m a mom,” she says, “and that’s an important part of my life. Family is hugely important. I have a boy, 13, and a girl, 11. My husband works in digital marketing and is my manager.”
Scarlet Keys has been a full time professor in the Songwriting department at the Berklee College of music for the past 10 years teaching songwriting, lyric writing, performance and upper division songwriting courses.
Scarlet is also a former staff songwriter for Warner/Chappell music publishing in Nashville and performs as a solo singer/songwriter. She has had several songs recorded by other artists and has had a gold record, a number #1 song in Britain and many songs recorded by artist in Canada, Nashville and the U.S. Two of her songs are on the national commercial for “Our Time” airing on Fox, Hallmark, TNT and AMC and two songs on the Zulily clothing commercials. She has also had a song placement in the recent movie “The Greening of Whitney Brown” starring Kris Kristofferson, Brook Shields and Aiden Quinn and charted with her original country songs on music row in Nashville with an independent artist and an artist singed to the Curb record label ranging in genres from folk, Americana and Jazz. Her songs have appeared on television shows as well as daytime soaps and she has collaborated with some of the world’s best artists and writers and continues to travel to Nashville , Boston and Sweden, co-writing with her favorite writers and artists while sharing her passion and knowledge of songwriting with her talented up and coming students at Berklee.
