On July 18th, Naked Lounge hosted an acoustic show of Zack Gray and Sean Stack from Wrings, James Cavern, Mason Rex, and other local artists. Fans from the Sacramento area came together for the night and had the opportunity to watch and listen to these artists play on a more personal level. Between each song they explained what inspired them to write their songs and the stories behind them. Some of the inspiration came from past relationships, love, friends, family, and the direction their lives are going. They talked about how nothing comes easy in life and you have to work your hardest to get where you want to be. People can be discouraging and try to push you down but there are also fans and family who are there at every show supporting them and wanting to see more. They play because music is their love, passion, and their life. At the end of the day if you are doing what you love and what makes you happy, then that is all that matters.
Watching them sing, laugh and explain the reasons behind each song was inspiring. There was so much talent throughout the night. Here are the links to the artist so you can see and check out for yourself how talented these artist are. There are many upcoming shows and I would encourage anyone to see at least one of them.
