CCEMiami presents the third edition concert of The Acoustic Guitar Project on February 15th at 8pm. The artists which will perform at the concert will be Devin Thompson, Erin Nicole, Jessica Sirena, Paula Marfil and Keith Johns.
The Acoustic Guitar Project is a global music platform — and concert series — that inspires musicians to write an original song and record it live in one week.
One Guitar. A city and five local artists are chosen. They are provided with an acoustic guitar and a simple recorder.
One Week Each musician has one week to write an original song and record it live. No editing is allowed. Musicians also shoot a video describing their experience and/or song.
One Song Each musician signs the guitar and takes picture with it. We upload their song, their picture and video to the site. Then, the guitar is passed on to the next artist in that city.
In addition to the songs these five artists have created, each one of them will perform also 2 more songs of their choosing
Keith Johns crafts dynamic, beautifully orchestrated Indie Folk music that reflects the variety of emotions present in all of our lives: at times joyful and celebratory, at times sorrowful and longing. He delivers richly nuanced stories in his unique voice with lyrics that are soulful and honest.
