Sarah Potenza and Meghan Linsey will be performing in the Dogwood Center’s Black Box on Friday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. Both Sarah and Meghan have made a name for themselves since competing on NBC’s “The Voice” in 2015 and have gone on to wow audiences across the nation, each with a powerfully soulful and distinctive voice.
Potenza left the show as a top 20 finalist then headed to Nashville, where she quickly integrated into the local music scene, becoming a staple at the world renowned Bluebird Café and the globally broadcast Music City Roots program. She continues to earn raves for her big voice, which seamlessly blends roots, rock and soul. NPR Music exclusively premiered the music video to Potenza’s debut album, ‘Monster’. Programmers have been supporting her gritty sound and unstoppable resolve, resulting in ‘Monster’ moving quickly up the Americana Radio chart. NPR Music calls the album a “blistering, riff-propelled personal anthem. Sarah’s album also received rave reviews from Rolling Stone. In 2016, the magazine named her one of the top 10 artists you need to know, stating “Potenza is to the Blues what Adele is to Pop.”
In the same year on "The Voice", Meghan was named the Season 8 Runner Up. In 2015 Meghan charted a #1 on the Christian Billboard chart with her rendition of “Amazing Grace”. After her journey on "The Voice", Meghan independently released her pop EP ‘Believer’ which debuted at #6 on the iTunes Pop Chart. Before "The Voice", Meghan was one half of the chart topping country duo Steel Magnolia. The duo’s debut single “Keep On Lovin' You” landed the #4 Position on the Billboard Country chart and was the highest charting debut single from a co-ed duo in country music history. Rolling Stone magazine stated, “Linsey marries soul, blues, rock, country and even a little gospel together in a unique, captivating sound that has seemingly no ceiling to its range.”
