Montana Songwriter’s Showcase - Live In Studio (Susan Gibson, Tom Catmull, Jenn Adams, John Floridis)

September 17th, 2019

"What has 30 albums, a Grammy nomination, multiple “Best Musician” awards from the Missoula Independent, a USA Songwriter Grand Prize and a Northwest Emmy Award-winning television performance? The combination of singer-songwriters Susan Gibson, Tom Catmull, Jenn Adams and John Floridis.
These four singer-songwriters began their careers in Missoula in the early and mid 1990s at the dawn of the movement toward independently produced CDs and recordings. Though they've all pursued their paths individually, they've frequently shared billing with one another, recorded together and even occasionally played in each other's bands." - livelytimes.com

The four join Tommy live in the Trail 1033 studio for some music, coffee and fun.
