Adam is an incredibly versatile performer who not only sings but plays trumpet with ensembles including the Boston Pops. And Somerville resident and Berklee prof David Thorne Scott writes and performs in jazz and Americana styles.

Basketball player turned guitarist, turned philosophy major, turned songwriter Paul Hansen has been playing on the Boston scene since 2005. Along with multiple national tours, mostly DIY, Paul’s band, The Grownup Noise, has had several songs featured on MTV and popular Netflix shows and various independent films. He has a true love for song and his favorite style of music changes on a daily basis.
Rich, lush and full of emotion, Laura Vecchione’s voice evokes wide rivers of the south that seem far from her origins in New York and Boston. She has recorded three studio albums in Nashville, and worked with Grammy-award-winning producers and musicians. Her songs have received heavy rotation on the Americana charts and received TV placement in national television shows. In addition to performing, Laura is a sought after voice teacher in the Boston area and Assistant Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music. “Laura Vecchione hails from New York, lives in Boston, and recorded her debut album in Nashville. Keep this quick bio handy to remind yourself that she’s not from Chicago, because Deeper Waters sounds a whole lot more South Side than Soho, Allston or Grand Ole Opry.” -Valley Advocate
Adam Gautille is a genre-hopping singer songwriter based in Boston whose music takes inspiration from Motown, R&B, Folk and Jazz. As a multi-instrumentalist, Adam loops trumpet, guitar, piano and singing to create a unique backdrop for his music.
Your host David Thorne Scott is a singer and songwriter in jazz and Americana styles. A 20-year resident of Somerville, he organized Songwriters in the Round to foster a creative, dynamic music scene for his adopted home city. He believes that music can bring a community together like nothing else. “At a time of great conflict in our country – when words often fail us – music has the power to bridge divides… David Thorne Scott explores the intersection of Jazz and Americana, city and country, instrumentation and lyrics to create lush compositions and covers that are unifying, and healing, in their beauty.” – Laurie Fanell, Eponymous Review
