MANIFEST Moves into the Summer

The eighteenth installment of Christian J. Collier’s MANIFEST series will offer two of its most rich and intimate performances to kick off the summer. Local singer/songwriter Amber Fults will be sharing the evening of June 9th with My Politic, an acoustic folk band hailing from Boston, MA.

Amber Fults is one of Chattanooga’s most acclaimed singer/songwriters. In addition to boasting one of the Scenic City’s strongest and most soulful voices, she is also one of its most skilled writers and has a number of accomplishments to her name. Recently, she and her band Amber Fults and the Ambivalent Lovers were finalists for the Road to Nightfall Competition. She released her debut album Center of My Heart in September of 2010 and has performed in some of the Southeast’s most renowned venues and festivals.

My Politic is a folk/Americana band that hails from Boston. Their music is reminiscent of artists such as Iron & Wine, Fleet Foxes, and Dawes. They have been together since 2003 and recorded their first album A Few Words I Couldn't Find Yesterday when its members were only seventeen. Recently, they have been on tour for their latest album, American Will, which is their fourth release.

Both acts will play at The Camp House (1427 Williams St.) on June 9th. As is customary for MANIFEST, doors will open at 8 PM and the show will get underway at 9. A new twist for this edition of the series is that there is no fixed admission price. Patrons are encouraged to experience the show and contribute what they can or feel is appropriate for the musicians. For further information, Christian J.
