Call it a happy accident of 19th-century design, but the Depot has terrific acoustics. Voices carry and fill the room without ever crowding it (though the whoosh of a passing train occasionally joins the chorus). Maybe that’s how we attract national touring artists as well as talented local performers.
Roscoe & Etta
(Maia Sharp & Anna Schulze)
Wednesday, Aug. 21, 7:30 p.m.
Nearly a year after selling out the Depot last September, Roscoe & Etta (aka Maia Sharp and Anna Schulze) are returning to the theater August 21. They’ll be touring behind an album of new songs, set for release in August.
About these brilliant musicians:
Roscoe & Etta’s self-titled debut release was met with critical acclaim and a Top Ten spot at Triple A Radio with their first single “Broken Headlights.”
Roscoe and Etta are the cranky old guitars on which Maia Sharp and Anna Schulze wrote their debut album and then their follow up EP, Blessings, Curses, Anchors and Wings scheduled for release in August.
Maia Sharp has had her songs recorded by The Dixie Chicks, Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, Keb’ Mo’, Cher, Art Garfunkel, Paul Carrack, Lisa Loeb, Terri Clark and more. She has produced Edwin McCain, Art Garfunkel and American Idol finalist, Crystal Bowersox and co-produced Edwin’s “Walk With You” with Grammy-winning producer Don Was. Through it all, Maia has recorded seven solo releases and one collaborative project with Art Garfunkel and Buddy Mondlock that have each been embraced by press and radio.
At the age of 27, Anna Schulze is a multi-faceted songwriter, artist, and producer who has had her songs featured in the Oscar-winning documentary Icarus, ABC's Station 19, Proven Innocent on Fox, MTV, CBS and more. She has five solo releases, the latest of which, Pickford Market, was featured on Morning Edition, The Current and buzz bands LA and was coined by No Depression Journal as “genuine, dynamic, and insightful.”
Individually or as a duo, Maia and Anna have opened for and/or performed with Bonnie Raitt, The Beach Boys, Art Garfunkel, Patty Griffin, Keb’ Mo’, Rodney Crowell, Jonatha Brooke, David Wilcox, Dispatch, Mt Joy, Wood Brothers, Anderson East, Mondo Cosmo, Scars on 45 and Pat Benatar.
“Maia is making some of the most innovative and soulful music around with songs that are head
and shoulders above the rest. She has become one of my favorite artists…” - Bonnie Raitt
“Anna Schulze is a refreshing update on the singer/songwriter. She plays electric guitar, sings from the heart, and brings energy and passion to the stage. She simmers and shimmers somewhere between power pop and emo rock, and her melodies evoke the great American summer…” - Glen Ballard
