NashLive! Presents: Skylar Gregg, Charles Ellsworth, and The Daily Fare

It’s an Americana showcase in the heart of East Nashville on Wednesday, October 20, when Skylar Gregg, Charles Ellsworth, and The Daily Fare join us at The Cobra!

Skylar Gregg engages in a gripping cocktail of hard work, humor, and self discovery, expressing vivid lyrical imagery and raw grit that soaks into every note of her songwriting. The Nashville-based musician translates that into a mixed bag of retro southern music immersed in old soul, 60’s and 70’s country and blues.

Charles Ellsworth is an NYC transplant by way of the White Mountains of Arizona where he was raised on Mormon hymns and Top 40 country music. A storyteller by nature, Ellsworth’s lyrics and near-familiar melodies weave to tell stories of heartbreak and loneliness, while shining a light on the perseverance of the human spirit. A self-proclaimed “recovering toxic sadboy” — Ellsworth’s music has evolved with him. Through sobriety and self-exploration, Ellsworth has shifted from writing songs lamenting “the ones that got away,” to singing honest reflections about what caused them to leave and doing the work to be better.

Northern-born songwriters Alissa Abeler and Hannah Smith joined creative forces to form the duo now known as The Daily Fare. The pair grew up on opposite sides of the music world, with influences ranging from Judy Garland and Adele to Beethoven and Bach, with a healthy dose of Broadway, punk cabaret, and 80s ballads sprinkled in the mix.

Their shared affection for poignant and evocative narrative teamed with years of playing small intimate shows have transformed the once-placid duo’s sound into the story-weaving powerhouse they are today. With characteristically unique vocal harmonies and engaging instrumentation, The Daily Fare are carving out a niche for themselves within the Americana genre while their honest and occasionally eccentric approach to storytelling continues to engage new listeners on this creative journey. Their sound has been compared to First Aid Kit, The Milk Carton Kids, and The Civil Wars.
