April 5, 2014 by SoWal Staff

First Note Entertainment will present an Easter Weekend concert April 18-19 at 7pm at Seascape Resort in Miramar Beach. Each show features rising artists and a range of musical genres, such as country, blues, soul, and more. The Easter Weekend concerts will feature Joanna Cotton, Isaac Hayden, Sam Brooker, and Sharif.

Joanna Cotten is a dynamic medley of soulful vocal prowess, beauty, and infectious charm. She calls her music "funkabilly," and the appellation fits just right, serving as a dead-on description of Cotten's undeniable artistry – a heart-stopping mix of God-given talent, flawless technique, and deep-down Southern soul. As a writer, Cotton’s songs have been recorded by artists such as LeAnn Rimes, Leona Lewis and Danny Gokey. Her music has been featured in motion pictures such as Lee Daniels’ The Butler and Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls. Cotton also lends her talent to numerous other recording artists, having collaborated on tracks with Eric Church, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Amos Lee, and Keith Anderson.

Born and raised in Jackson, Wyoming, Isaac Hayden’s soulful voice and simple and honest lyrics will move you. Since moving to Nashville 5 years ago, Hayden has opened for incredible acts like Martin Sexton, Keb Mo’, Fitz & The Tantrums, Tony Joe White, Sam & Ruby, and many others. Currently signed to Artist Revolution Publishing, Hayden is finishing his first Nashville studio album to be released this year.

Sam Brooker's music can be heard on Sirius XM singer/songwriter stations and on the big screen.  His songs have been featured on TV and in such films as The Secret Life Of Bees and Hope Springs, starring Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones.

Sharif Iman is a poet with a ‘Chocolate Rock’ soul style. He has opened for Brian McKnight and sang back up vocals for Patti LaBelle, Johnny Lang, Darryl Worley, and more. Sharif also appeared in commercials, music videos, and award shows with Dolly Parton, LeeAnn Rimes, Toby Keith, Stephen Curtis Chapman, and others.
