NBC's The Jimmy Lloyd Songwriter Showcase to Produce Live Songwriter-in-the-Round Series

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 17, 2012) - The Jimmy Lloyd Songwriter Showcase, a nationally syndicated TV show on NBC's digital network, will begin producing live events to complement its televised platform to bring much needed attention to talented up-and-coming musicians. The series will feature three songwriters on stage, each in turn performing a song and talking about the story behind it and its genesis.

Jimmy Lloyd will host the New York City based events and perform and will feature a rotating cast of up-and-coming and well-established songwriters.

The events will be filmed live for incorporation into episodes of The Jimmy Lloyd Songwriter Showcase.

The inaugural event will kick off on October 11th at Hill Country on 26th street in Manhattan and will feature Leroy Virgil of Hellbound Glory, Sean Walsh from the band National Reserve and Jimmy Lloyd.

"We're thrilled to be partnering with Hill Country Live for this event. Much like our TV show, the folks at Hill Country act as a launch pad for artists on the verge, staging the best songwriters and bands that you will soon be hearing about, and creating multi-media opportunities to catapult them to the next level. Our aim is to make this the premiere songwriting event in New York City," said Jimmy Lloyd.

Seth Rothschild, Assistant Director of Hill Country Live had this to add: "We're excited to be partnering with The Jimmy Lloyd Songwriter Showcase, and look forward to developing future events together. We are also beyond thrilled to be able to showcase bands like Hellbound Glory at our venue. They are dynamic, honest and soulful. They are right in the center of the bulls-eye of artists whose story we'd like to help tell: 'We've had 'em at our SXSW showcase and playing our NY and DC venues. Now, it's on to the Jimmy Lloyd show!' Hill Country will be very proud to host them in such an intimate setting."
