Savannah Stopover Preview: Cheyenne Marie Mize

I posted about this festival based in Savannah a few weeks ago (here’s that article) and I’m going to start posting articles focused on specific bands playing at this year’s festival. There are over 70 bands that are playing so I’m definitely not even going to get close to covering all the great bands. But I’ll try to focus on my favorites.

The first artist is Cheyenne Marie Mize. I saw her and her band at Hopscotch Festival this year and it was the most impressive show I saw at the festival. She had a very powerful stage presence and they all played their instruments ridiculously well. She actually played at Savannah Stopover last year, so it definitely proves something that they brought her right back this year. She has had two releases so far: the LP Before Lately and the EP We Don’t Need and they are both absolutely fantastic. This is definitely an artist you don’t want to miss at the moment.

Tickets for all Festival events are currently available through ShowClix: Day passes for 3/8, 3/9 or 3/10 are $30, four-day passes which include the opening night event are $75, and VIP passes are $120, which allow festival-goers access to all events, including private after parties and special events throughout the weekend.

About the Author

Yes, I was named after famous british polar bear Rupert. In fact, I was named after a cat that was named after that cartoon bear. This is exactly the reason why I’d have to say an orange cat is my spirit animal. Though, it’s kind of more like this cat is my spirit goddess. My spirit animal is a bit more like a grizzly duck, which is a grizzly bear with a duck’s beak. Two reasons: 1) When I wake up I am angry and grumble a lot, like a grizzly bear but once I wake up I am (usually) friendly and I quack a lot, and 2) I own a sweater with a grizzly bear on it and one with a duck on it. I am obviously obsessed with music and everything to do with music. I have been to over 80 concerts, I am in a band called One Two Skidoo, and I also co-host a radio show of that same name on WUSC. I was born in a country called London (I would say England, but you Americans seem to be set on the fact that England is only London). I was actually born in Brighton, England, but I don’t wanna confuse you too much so we’ll say I’m from London. I then moved to a super freezing area of Canada. You’re probably thinking “but all of Canada is super freezing!”. That’s not true. Well, kind of not true. I do that school thing at the University of South Carolina, and I write about music on this website, obviously. David Stringer is my hero.
