Songwriter Session Series

October 11 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm EDT

We are excited to present an evening of original music in conjunction with the Austrian Embassy and SongPo on WERA 96.7 with two outstanding European Songwriters Mari Mana and Bernhard Eder at the intimate listening space where we got our DC start ten years ago and remains an even greater new venue! #SeasonsandSessions

The sessions will be live streamed and filmed for television and recorded for radio and you will have the opportunity to participate as adoring fans!

With your attendance comes the belief that we will build this event into a monthly series to share touring and local Artists who represent the true ideals of great Songwriting and are deserving of your attention and support.

Admission is Free, plan to come early for snacks or dinner as space is limited.

Please take a moment to explore each Artist, we are certain that you will want to attend!

MARI MANA (Berlin, Germany)
“When solo artist Mari Mana takes her guitar and opens up her soul to the audience, silent intimacy fills the room. Her music doesn’t require loud tunes; it captivates you before you have a chance to possibly resist. With her bluesy voice, she enchants with stunningly gorgeous, lyrically rich, romantic and thoughtfully executed ballads. Perfect, harmonic and yet different to what one may expect from the genre. Formidably distinctive.”
(Tatjana Jakob, Sound-designer)
“A vocal range that causes more than just goosebumps. Touching music. Distinctively original.” (Fusion Festival)

BERNHARD EDER (Vienna, Austria):

Vienna’s Bernhard Eder is known for his inspiring lyrics and distinct yet gentle voice. His music combines elements of classic and modern, mixing lo-fi acoustic, indie and psychedelic styles. He is inspired by classic artists such as Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Air and Elliott Smith – influences, he does not hide behind but uses to propel his music in new and exciting directions. With his latest album “Reset” he opened a new episode of his musical career – instead of guitars he has used old organs, synthesizer for writing and producing. »Marvellous electronic odes« (Rolling Stone)
