Stories behind the music



Most people are familiar with VH1's Storytellers and Behind the Music, where popular bands and artists give insight behind the creation of songs and the band. It gives fans a deeper look at the inner workings of their favorite artists and the meanings of songs they sing along to.

On Oct. 6, the Proximity Project will host its first NoDa Storytellers event at The Evening Muse. The featured artist is Simplified, who will perform a 90-minute set and share the stories behind the songs.

"More than being seen or heard, I think an artist wants to be understood," Storytellers brainchild Joseph William states in a press release. "Or at least, not be completely misunderstood." William is singer/songwriter and front man for Evelynn Rose.

Doors for the event open at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour featuring complimentary food from Harvest Moon Grill. The band starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20. More information can be found at
