"Summer Soundtrack"

You may remember husband-wife team Anna and William Cusack as Casket Sharp. They've recently changed their project's name to Painter and Poet, a moniker that nods to Anna's visual art skills and William's way with words.

Their six-song debut showcases William's soulfully warm guitar picking and the duo's sharp harmonies. The Texas natives have fused a tone that pays homage to their Stevie Ray Vaughan-style blues roots and the slow-buzz Southern life they've found here in Georgia. There's a twinge of roots influence there, a smidge of folk, but the breezy, gentle sound the Cusacks have created is entirely their own. - Anna Chandler

Painter & Poet consists of Paulie Cee (guitar/vocals) and Anna Lee (saxophone/vocals) and they will fill your ears with soulful songs brimming with relatable wisdom and heart warming hope. They strive for everyone to be able to take away something from their music, whether that be enlightenment or a catchy tune. Painter & Poet put their whole heart and soul in their songs as they craft them together. After their own genuine touches, you can hear influences from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Welshly Arms,  Mindi Abair,  and Julie London. 

Husband and wife, Paulie Cee and Anna Lee, were born and raised in Texas, but met each other in Savannah, GA. They quickly fell in love, got married in 2014, and immediately decided to form the band together. The couple later met other musicians to expand their creativity with the music, making it into what it is today. The band currently resides in Savannah, GA, but hopes to move west to find unreached ears and more shows to play. Painter & Poet has a recent project available with new songs and instruments that will give you all the feels as they showcase each member’s talents in different forms. The band wanted to capture their raw talent and energy as much as possible, so they decided to track about everything together for the newest single that they have available, called "Wise Anna Lee".  

Collectively, Painter & Poet strongly believes in fostering the musical experience by creating a reverence for live performances. They craft their show strategically to fully entertain their audiences with their array of instruments, talents, and diverse songs. You may be crying in the middle of their set and possibly dancing at the end. They hope to never disappoint and always strive to perform with excellence, even if its a crowd of one.
