"Common Thread Returns to the Listening Room"

In a city that is thick with talent and chock-full of solo artists dreaming of making a name for themselves, a pair of aspiring songwriter-artists have decided to take an uncommon path by combining their exceptional talents to form Common Thread, one of Nashville’s most promising up and coming duos.

Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis have followed the well-tread path worn in by countless songwriting hopefuls from points all across the planet, and cut their teeth by playing writers’ nights at places such as the Commodore Grille and the Hotel Indigo. Now, as accomplished two-year veterans of the Nashville original music scene, the upstart duo can now be found playing the infamous Bluebird Café or the Listening Room, both venues with a reputation for attracting some of the best talent that Music City has to offer.

With a passion for music and an obvious respect for each other’s musicianship, the self-proclaimed Philly girl and Georgia boy have quickly garnered the attention of the music industry. At a recent performance for a near-capacity crowd at the Listening Room, the duo put on a spellbinding show for their growing fan base as well as a couple of music industry notables who were there to get a first-hand look at the young and continually blossoming prospects. Davis and Zimmermann's well-crafted harmonies and proficiency with their instruments kept the audience hanging on every note, and they were justly rewarded with a well-deserved and almost overzealous round of applause at the end their performance.

Common Thread will be returning to the Listening Room for an early evening performance on Wednesday, March 9th. Also on the bill are Lorna Flowers, Eddie Heinzelman, Amy Lewis and guests. Line-ups are subject to change. Contact the venue for updated show times

Still working on that hot first release.



What do you get when you combine a Georgia boy and a Philly girl, a couple of smokin’ hot guitar licks, sweet melodies and lyrics that speak to all, and songs that get stuck in your ear for days on end? Ladies and gentlemen, you get Common Thread! Made up of Justin Davis, Sarah Zimmermann and their dueling telecasters, the now Nashville-based guitarists/songwriters/singers have teamed up and are rapidly becoming the newest talk-of-the-town. Their combined years of guitar playing make up more years than their ages, and along with their relatable songwriting and ear-catching melodies and harmonies (and an occasional throw-back to old-timey western swing tunes) the two have created a new sound that provides the Common Thread between all types of music and all types of listeners. Common Thread is hitting the ground running, with no signs of getting tied up any time soon. Stay tuned for news, shows announcements, and the full band!!
