From press release
Charlotte’s Web will present its first-ever Showcase Event a la Folk Alliance featuring Caleb Hawley and Reed Waddle, and three 3-song spots open to all. This event is at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 16, at JustGoods Listening Room, 201 Seventh St. Stop by on your way to the Element’s public meeting at 7 p.m. at Memorial Hall, about Artspace (www.artspacerockford.org ) for a re-fueling of the spirit with live music from Caleb and Reed.
At 12, Caleb Hawley learned his first Nirvana song on guitar and made a hit with the seventh-grade girls, so he decided to learn more. Soon Caleb was the youngest bar hopper in Minneapolis, performing all over the city. After college, he decided to head out to Boston and attend Berklee College of Music. He received a degree in jazz composition, then moved to New York City, and in July 2007, released his debut CD, Greatest Hits. “More poetic and more emotional than practically any other act playing right now. In a period of pop stars devoid of any emotion, the soulful lyrics of Waddle shine through as a bright spot on a barren plain,” said Neufutr’s James McQuiston.
Reed Waddle is an artist who has arrived Piece by Piece. His fourth album finds the constantly-evolving
singer-songwriter at the peak of his melodic dexterity, fusing highly emotional soundscapes with a wide palette of memorable pop/rock anthems. His lyrical vision and depth invites comparison by many as a modern-day Van Morrison melding into “a similar relaxed soulfulness that recalls Boz Scaggs’ best work that at the end of the day, any day, sounds great,” raved Joe Hartlaub.
