Jason Eskridge & Robby Hecht
Tuesday, April 16, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM (EDT)
Jason Eskridge was born and grew up in Rockwood, TN. After high school he attended college at Tennessee Tech University where he played football and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. After college he accepted an engineering job in Huntsville, AL where he worked for approximately a year and a half. During that time Jason could never shake his passion to make music. So he packed up, left Huntsville, and moved to Nashville, TN where he currently lives.
Since moving to Nashville Jason has served as a studio vocalist for such acts as Lyle Lovett, Randy Travis, Jonny Lang, Nicole C. Mullen, Marc Broussard, eLi, Micah Dalton, Grits, Verbs, Circadian Rhythm, Sammy Ward, DJ Maj, and Toby Mac. Jason has also traveled opening or singing backup for Lyle Lovett, Nicole C. Mullen, eLi, Micah Dalton, Grits, Knowdaverbs, and Pigeon John. He has been featured as a guest vocalist on numerous projects. Jason has traveled across the country playing for youth groups and campuses as well as playing at various music venues. He has also had the opportunity to take his music abroad as he has traveled to South Africa, Amsterdam, and England. Jason's latest release is entitled "Live in Nashville".
Jason’s desire as a musician is to create music that causes the listener to love God, love themselves, love their fellow man, think harder, think deeper, think broader, laugh until they cry, laugh when they want to cry, try something new, remember something old, and ultimately live life to the fullest.
Robby Hecht's music and voice represent a return to the early 70s golden era of acoustic pop where thoughtful, well-crafted lyrics were blended with timeless melodies. With his soulful tenor, poetic words, and finger-style guitar playing, Robby evokes emotional resonance through every song. Robby has toured and written relentlessly over the last several years and is the winner of several songwriting awards including the Kerrville New Folk Competition, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriting Contest and Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Contest. Born in Knoxville, TN, Robby started writing & performing while attending college in Madison, WI. He has busked in Paris (most days it was Robby vs. the neighborhood bagpiper), fronted a folk/swing band (AllDay Radio) in San Francisco, and is now based in Nashville, TN. His newest album is titled Last of the Long Days.
