Local musicians showcase in Nashville


February 23, 2012

LIBERTY, NY — Local musicians Somerville, featuring Alyssa Startup, were featured on The Billy Block Show live from Nashville, TN on Tuesday, February 21, introduced by Thunder 102 on-air personality Paul Ciliberto of Ciliberto & Friends.

Somerville, made up of Monticello singer/songwriter brothers Ken and Barry Somerville, has been entertaining audiences everywhere from festival stages to concert halls, radio and television shows to numerous club appearances. It is signed to Nashville’s RPM Music Group and has three CDs out to date. Recently the brothers started working with a young singer by the name of Alyssa Startup, who hails from Pond Eddy. They opened up their catalog of songs to the young singer, cut a few guitar/vocal demos to play for their friends on Music Row and regularly feature her when they perform. Their guest spot on February 21 was their first showcase as part of The Billy Block Show, which is second only to The Grand Ole Opry and Midnight Jamboree as Nashville’s longest running live radio show and concert series.
