This only-in-Savannah co-bill pairs two emerging artists who are shaking up the country music scene.
Nikki Lane grew up in Greenville, South Carolina and was raised on her mother’s Motown records and her father’s classic country. Lane follows in the early rockabilly footsteps of Wanda Jackson, but with a punk-rock attitude that makes her as comfortable sharing the stage with Social Distortion as with Loretta Lynn. Known for her signature style of clothing, she sings with a power that conjures up the nostalgic sounds of 1960s country music for a modern audience.
Parker Millsap is a young Oklahoman who has some serious songwriting chops and a voice that ranges from a greasy howl to an angelic falsetto. He can sing the blues as naturally as a crystal-clear yodel, and often invokes the attitude of early rock ‘n’ roll. As a songwriter, Millsap often uses the framework of folk song forms to deliver modern observations. About Millsap, The Wall Street Journal writes: “Notably smart, sometimes acerbic, this charismatic new performer… rivets audiences with intense but smooth vocal whoops, cascades and pauses; emotional, blues-based slide guitar with punctuating harmonica; and a sharp, compact band.”
