Music Sampler

The Sweetwater Cafe is dedicated to bringing neighbors together to share an evening of food, friendship and great live music. Come join us on the southern end of beautiful Lake Lanier in Cumming, GA for the experience of hearing talented musicians in an intimate "house concert" setting. We feature local singer/songwriters as well as traveling acts from around the world.

How it Works?

A House Concert is just that - a concert in a private home. We occasionally invite artists to play for us in our house and invite the local community to join us as a way to have fun and meet new people. Each guest is asked to chip in $20 per person - all of which goes directly to the artist - and to bring their favorite beverage and a dish to share in a pot luck dinner that takes place before the show.

Kylie Odetta
Suggested donation: $20/person

Hailing from Greenville, SC, you might call Kylie Odetta an indie artist but with hints of jazz, soul and pop influences. Her music is mellow & soothing and will take you on an all-inspiring journey. Fans of Norah Jones and Sara Bareilles are going to love Kylie.

Check out samples of her music.

Opening for Kylie will be Ivy Stokes, a 16 year old up-and-coming talent from right here in Atlanta. Her YouTube channel already has 27k subscribers and 1.5M views!

The Sweeplings
Suggested donation: $20/person

We are thrilled that the Sweeplings have agreed to stop by and play for us. After becoming a finalist on America's Got Talent, Washington native Cami Bradley joined up with Alabama-based Whitney Dean to form the duo back in 2014. If you are a fan of the Civil Wars (like I am), you'll love the Sweeplings as well. In fact, there's a close connection there - before starting the Sweeplings, Whitney toured with John Paul White of the Civil Wars.

Check out samples of their music and I'm confident their haunting music and amazing harmonies will win you over as well.

Women Songwriters of Georgia
Suggested donation: $20/person

For this show you'll be treated to amazing music from two of the area's best female singer/songwriters.

Jennifer Daniels grew up on foot of Lookout Mountain near Chattanooga but brought her music down to Atlanta back in 1999 trying her luck at Eddie's Attic's open night - making it to the finals but losing out to then unknown John Mayer. Check out samples of her music.

Amy Andrews started out as the lead singer of a Baltimore folk trio however, but after a few tours through the southeast decided to take her music career to Georgia. Check out samples of her music.
