Writing or co-writing her own songs is important for country music singer-songwriter Kalisa Ewing. She mines material for her songs from personal experiences.
“So they’re honest,” Ewing said.
Ewing is the opening act for the Pam Tillis concert Saturday at the Historic State Theater.
When it comes to her music, Ewing said she is “definitely country.” She cites a variety of influences including Patty Loveless, Loretta Lynn and Lucinda Williams.
“I even love Frank Sinatra,” she said.
