The Brooklyn Bowl Nashville hosted two phenomenal artists on Monday August 22nd, Faye Webster and Maya Hawke. The Brooklyn Bowl Nashville is a great addition to the Nashville music scene since it opened its door two years ago. The wide main floor and large stage coupled with quality lighting, top notch sound, and caring staff creates the perfect intermediate sized music venue. With a capacity of over 1200 it has become one of the best places to enjoy an evening of music here in Middle Tennessee.
The sold-out show began with a great set of 10 songs sung by Maya Hawke accompanied by her two excellent guitarists. Maya was flawless in tonal texture bringing fun lighthearted warmth to each of the well crafted intelligent songs she sang. About halfway through the set she sang a vocal duet of Crazy Kid with her lead guitarist that truly shined. Hawke’s ability to keep the packed house fully engaged throughout the entirety of her set was outstanding seeing how opening acts tend to face crowds that are impatiently awaiting the headliner to perform, which was not the case at this show.
Following Maya’s performance, Faye Webster and band mesmerized the standing-room only crowd with a deeply powerful set of twelve alluring songs that totally captivated her fans. Each song she played seemed to flow together like streams joining to create one massive river of pure musical joy. The audience was enveloped within Faye’s lyrical consciousness of thought and perception resulting in an excellent uplifting evening of music.
