Encinitas’ Teen Songwriting Phenoms…
Cordelia Degher, Kennady Tracy, and Lizzie Waters @ Encinitas Library
Songwriting is a complicated art at any age, but fully realized fifteen year-old singer-songwriters are a rare thing indeed. Let alone three of them, all girls, at the same high school. But that’s the case at San Dieguito Academy right now. Must be something in the water – somehow there are three amazing teens who write, sing, and perform their own heartfelt songs.
TICKETS AVAILABLE at the door:
Adults – $12
Students – $5
Originally from Sweden, Cordelia Degher took up guitar at five and songwriting at ten; now she’s an accomplished singer-songwriter with a deep catalogue. Her debut EP Open Up to Me was just released and features back-up from top L.A. and San Diego musical figures. She took 2nd place in the 2015 Conscious Music Young Voices songwriting competition, won SDA’s 2014 Battle of the Bands, and as a fifth grader was a national winner in the Reflections Arts Contest. She’s performed at La Paloma Theater, San Diego House of Blues, and the Long Beach Convention Center, among other venues. www.cordeliadegher.com
