Sandy Roots Music Productions will be managing and producing a yearlong original music series at The Point Restaurant, 14340 Innerarity Point Road in Perdido Key, FL. The series will showcase six songwriting artists each month, 3 locals and 3 regional or national touring songwriters. There will also be a Nashville hit songwriter featured quarterly. Local singer/songwriters will have the opportunity to showcase their talents with the best singer/songwriters from around the country.
Nick Biebricher, Sandy Roots Music Productions owner and founds says, “This series has been a dream of mine for a several years and it will be a platform for artists to share their music in a listening environment. Not only will they get to share their songs they will also get to tell the story behind the songs and give the listener a deeper understanding of how their feelings are reflected in the songwriting.”
Christina Waller, The Point Restaurant’s new owner is excited to host the inaugural series in the Courtyard under the Live Oak trees. “It will give local artists a place to network and collaborate with other artists. The Point is not just a great restaurant where you can truly hear original music; it is a business friendly environment perfect for our sponsors to network. Launching a new Songwriter Series this spring, is the perfect time with all the recent improvements at The Point. If you haven’t been to The Point Restaurant in a while, we think you will be pleasantly surprised.”
Original music has been a staple of the Gulf Coast region for decades. There has never been a better time to raise awareness and acknowledge the impact that musical arts have had on the Gulf Coast. This is a win-win situation for all where we can promote Escambia county and surrounding areas as an event destination and help market local businesses while providing the original songwriting artist the opportunity to showcase their talent.
