The McLemore Songwriter’s Series heats up on Thursday, July 18, with a performance by Javier Colón.

Review for Javier Colón:

Having been introduced to millions of TV viewers as the winner on the inaugural season of NBC's The Voice, Javier Colón has already won the attention of an international fan base that's embraced his personally-charged, acoustic-textured blend of pop, rock, and R&B, an effortlessly distinctive style that he's dubbed "acoustic soul."

Mr. Colón took his recording career to the next level with Gravity, his fourth album and his first for Concord Records. The 13-song album, on which Mr. Colón wrote or co-wrote all but three songs, marks a creative milestone for the artist. Such musically compelling, emotionally resonant tunes as "For A Reason," "Clear the Air," "Walking Blind" and the memorable title track demonstrate the breadth of his talents, matching his distinctly expressive voice with irresistible melodies, insightful lyrics, and Mr. Colón's own distinctive acoustic guitar work, which sets the tone for the album's spacious instrumental arrangements.

This year’s performances are sponsored by First Bank and Land Rover of Chattanooga. The popularity of the series has grown over time with more guests beginning a long weekend with the Thursday evening performance. Afterwards, hotel guests of the Cloudland experience many of the amenities Georgia’s only mountaintop resort has to offer. With the sun setting earlier, the backdrop for each performance becomes more dramatic as artists share stories and have conversations with the audience in the intimate venue.

“This is the fourth season for the Songwriter’s Series,” said IV Whitman, executive vice president of Marketing for Scenic Land Company. “We’ve found that while some of our guests attend to enjoy specific genres or artists, many are drawn to the McLemore Resort experience. There’s simply nothing like watching the sun disappear over McLemore Cove while listening to these performances that underscores what a special place McLemore is. We love sharing these experiences with our guests and look forward to Javier’s performance.”

Tickets for the July 18 performance are on sale now for $55 per person. Due to the limited number of available seats, McLemore highly recommends purchasing tickets in advance.
