BMI rang in the New Year in true acoustic fashion at The Acoustic Lounge, held January 7 at Genghis Cohen. The showcase, which is free and open to the public, is held on the first Monday of the month. This month, BMI presented four talented singer/songwriters: Nicholas Alan, Xolie Morra, Leslie of Leslie and the Badgers and Audra Hardt.
The Acoustic Lounge is one of many opportunities BMI offers to artists to showcase their talent in front of their peers and a supportive audience. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun, offering a great opportunity to network with other aspiring and working singer/songwriters. For established writers, it provides a chance to monitor new musical trends and be involved in the grass-roots/DIY musical movement.
