On Tuesday, March 22, Luna Chica Records celebrated its first of a series of writer's nights with "Writers In The Round - Chick Night." The event featured an all-female lineup of performers that included the label's newly signed Christi Bauerlee and Tarryn Smith, along with Kirsti Manna and Julie Forester.

It was an evening of music with the writers performing in an intimate, comfortable setting of oversized sofas and soft lighting that created the ambience of a living room house-show instead of an office or venue.

"One of our goals for 2011 was to create an incredible writer's series in an atmosphere that allows performers to connect and interact with the audience in an up-close and personal level," said Brenda Cline, Luna Chica Records' Chief Operating Officer.

Kirsti Manna, who co-penned Blake Shelton's six-week #1 smash, "Austin," kicked off the night of music. In addition to "Austin," Kirsti sang her rockin' piano version of "Loud," recorded by Big and Rich, and then contrasted it with an easy-listening jazz number. Kirsti also sang "Me and Brenda," a humorous song co-written with Jackie Bradshaw and LCR's own Brenda Cline. As a seasoned entertainer, Kirsti kept the audience laughing and engaged with both her music and comedic banter in between songs.

Artist/songwriter Julie Forester joined Kirsti during the first set of the night. Julie performed songs from her new EP, Julie Forester's plus 6 LIVE. As a dynamic performer who has traveled around the world, Julie's soulful and expressive vocals drew the audience right into her performance with the sinfully seductive "Let Me Be Your Lover" and the transparently honest "You Always Love Me When I'm Leaving."

Luna Chica Records' newly signed artists Christi Bauerlee and Tarryn Smith took to the stage for the second half of the musical evening with their mix of thought-provoking story-telling songs and rockin' country sing-a-longs.

Christi commanded immediate attention with a mix of her charming yet confident presence on stage and the intense, passionate vocals through which she sang her songs. Christi's honesty about her life and the story behind the intense ballad, "In Bed With A Stranger," created an immediate and personal connection with the audience. The light-hearted "Hillbilly Honey" conjured up an image for the ladies, but it was her heartfelt, personal rendition of Bonnie Raitt's "Love Me Like A Man" that was a crowd favorite. Christi's new CD, Show Me Who You Are, will be released next month on Luna Chica Records.

Tarryn Smith, also a new artist on Luna Chica Records, took the stage with Christi and could easily be described as a "songbird" with her angelic voice and sensitive, inspiring songs. Tarryn's music added the perfect balance to the evening. Tarryn played several songs off her new self-titled EP available from Luna Chica Records, along with the optimistic "Expecting Good Things," which is the title cut on the Grammy-nominated album by Jeff and Sheri Easter and can also be found on Majesty, the newest release from the Gaither Gospel Series.

There was a great deal of positive feedback from the artists about the atmosphere and the audience.

"I feel at home with Luna Chica Records, so it was like playing in my living room for a bunch of friends. And it sounded better than some clubs I've played," Christi said. "The crowd was amazing and the talent, well, that was top notch! I'm looking forward to more in the future."

"It was so much fun to play alongside three fabulously talented gals at Luna Chica Records' Chick Night," said Tarryn. "It's an honor to be working with a label like Luna Chica Records that is creating new opportunities for independent artists."

The event was also used as a platform to raise awareness about Colby's Army and their Operation Backpack - an initiative of the nonprofit 501(c)(3) to provide new and gently used and fully stocked backpacks for the homeless. Luna Chica Records is a current drop-off location for anyone who wants to contribute to Colby's Army. For more information, please visit
