On May 9, the Circle of Friends Coffeehouse welcomes two rising stars to our stage. Rebecca Loebe and Jesse Terry have both won numerous songwriting and performance awards. Rebecca is a young singer-songwriter who grew up in Atlanta and has done time in DC, Boston and New York, now making her home in Austin, TX. She is known for her distinct voice, well-crafted songs and ability to bring an audience to her journeys, introducing them to the characters she meets and observations she makes as she travels. She was a featured contestant on the first season of NBC’s “The Voice”.
Jesse Terry is an internationally touring, award-winning singer-songwriter whose intimacy with audiences, sincerity, and approachability has solidified him as a favorite at festivals and live venues nationwide. With three full-length albums, The Runner, Empty Seat On A Plane, and Stay Here With Me, this musician’s lyrical mastery, emotional depth, and soothing voice have often been compared to the likes of Jackson Browne, Josh Ritter, and James Taylor, reaching deep into listeners’ hearts to envelope them in shared joy, sadness, love, and unrelenting hope. He is also the Grand Prize winner of The John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Please join us for an evening of great music.
