This edition of Songwriter Showcase at Natalie's features Alex Bevan, Kelly Vaughn, and Heather Styka. Now in our fifth year, Songwriter Showcase presents the finest national and regional singer-songwriters. Our host, Eric Gnezda, is an award-winning songwriter and creator of the American Public Television series, Songs at the Center, which airs in more than 100 cities across America, and features many of the artists who appear on our stage. ALEX BEVAN has been sharing his voice, guitar and stories for more than 40 years. First known as the Skinny Little Boy from Cleveland, Ohio, who came to Chase your wimmin' and drink your beer, Alex has made a name for himself throughout Ohio. Drawing on his deep skill set of imaginative and honest songwriting, combined with an agile improvisational wit that dovetails wonderfully with his flawless guitar singing, Alex never fails to delight and charm audiences. KELLY VAUGHN's music is soulful and transparent. Her songs are written from the heart and speak to the struggle, hopes, and joy that we all experience. Kelly's voice was kind, heartfelt, and beautiful, a listener says. We were mesmerized... Kelly has turned adversity into a creative outlet that enables her to connect with people of all ages and all walks of life. The Columbus-based songwriter is currently working on a new full-length album, titled Life Goes On. HEATHER STYKA of Chicago is not afraid to go where others fear to tread. Beneath sweet, soulful vocals (Portland Press Herald), and nimble fingerpicked guitar (Dispatch Magazine) lie narratives of vulnerability, strength, and wanderlust. A Kerrville New Folk Finalist and award-winning writer with a No. 3 album on the FOLK-DJ charts, Heather has performed for more than a decade, released four full-length albums, and toured from coast to coast.
