Spring/Summer 2019 | FifeMagazine | 7 Quarter Page Magazine(4.25”x5.5”) IRT-1848D-A www.edwardjones.com Member SIPC Traci M Nelson, CRPC® Financial Advisor 6040 20th Street E Suite A Fife, WA 98424 253-896-9359 AMBER SWEENEY Singer-songwriter Amber Sweeney might sound familiar to fans of television show “One Tree Hill.” She formerly was one-half of the duo Everly, the Battleground, Wash. band that collected quite a following after its music was featured on that television show. Everly featured Sweeney and Bethany Joy Lenz, who played the character Haley James Scott on “One Tree Hill.” Lenz and Sweeney created the music that became a subplot when Lenz’s character on the show pursued a musical career. Everly eventually broke up, but Sweeney continues her soulful sounds as a solo artist touring throughout the country. Music in the Park attendees will be treated to Sweeney and a full band, which is a change from her typical performances. “One of the things I’m excited about when I come to Fife is that I get to bring a band with me,” she said. “It won’t be just me with my acoustic guitar. I do love playing solo, but I’m bringing these guys I play often with.” She described their sound as full and rich but with the intimacy of a solo show. “You’ll walk away with the feeling of community, friendship and intimacy,” she said. THE COATS For 20 years, The Coats have filled music venues with a big sound that surprisingly relies only on the voices of the four-member a capella group. Jamie Dieveney, the group’s second tenor and musical director, said The Coats will perform a blend of original music and a few recognizable covers at Music in the Park. The other members are bass singer Kerry Dahlen, baritone Doug Wisness and first tenor Keith Anderson. How does a capella music translate into an outdoor concert? Dieveney said the musicians will make good use of a sound system, but also the members work hard to vocally tune to one another to create a robust sound.
