This week, as Matt and Shawn gear up behind the scenes for some exciting changes ahead, we'll feature our Best of 2014! What an incredible year full of fantastic artists, amazing events and plain old fun times. This show will feature some of YOUR favorite segments, interviews and songs from 2014.
Now, about those changes...
For listeners of Nashville Underground Radio, very little will be changing in terms of listener engagement. We're still going to bring you the best artists, events and news in Music City, only we want to make everything bigger, better and more fun! (Sorry though, we can't make Matt and Shawn any better... you're stuck with them.)
It's the first show of the #NUyear, and it's a good one! Shawn calls in from the road with Nashville Underground Management's Zeke Duhon, while Matt is back at The Sound Shelter with the team's new act Viral Animal! Plus, they announce the expansion of Nashville Underground Entertainment and the new business venture, Nashville Underground Online!
Viral Animal is a duo and production team made up of Damar “D Powers” Howard and Charles “Rokman” Rhodes, who combine EDM, Hip-Hop and Trap Pop to create ground-breaking music that stimulates a party center in the listener’s brain. With D’s infectious swagger and Rok's brilliant pop sensibilities the team is fierce and unstoppable… much like their name suggests. Viral Animal's art is not just music; it’s a lifestyle brand.
About Nashville Underground Online
Our name has become synonymous with great artists and local culture. The goal of the Nashville Underground brand is simple: to market and promote independent artists and local entrepreneurs. Online branding and marketing (as something our team has always done anyway) was the inevitable next step.
Featuring Christmas music from your favorite #NUartists!
Artists include: Rebecca Roubion, Matt Bednarsky, Kylie Rothfield, Keaton Simons, Annie Bosko, Brett Ryan Stewart, Jamie Meyer, Forte Femme, Jameson Elder and Holley Maher, plus a HUGE artist making their debut on Nashville Underground Radio!
This week, Matt and Shawn talk about the closing of historic venue 12th and Porter, a new bill that will make drinking in cars illegal (yes, ILlegal), Slide The City and more! They also talk about upcoming events they will be involved in including Lights, Camera, Fashion and CRS. Plus, this week's featured artist is Seryn!
The blend of voices and instrumentation heard throughout Seryn’s first two albums creates a progressive-folk sound that isn’t easily defined, but still accessible to casual listeners. What may first appear as straight folk songs later transcends into a cascading wall of sound.
This week was a buzy one for the guys! Matt went to a party for rising country artist Sam Hunt, saw the musical "Once" at the Tennessee Performign Arts Center (TPAC), attended the Buds N' Suds charity event and hit up Musicians Corner. Then he and Shawn checked out the new Adele's Restaurant and went to the Nashville Lifestyles "Style Setters" event!
And this week's #NUartist is Chancellor Warhol! Nashville Underground's first hip hop artist, Chancellor grew up drawn to art, cinema, fashion and a diverse culture all of which helped shape his very own style of music today. Channeling an alternative/electro rap style, his unconventional sound has earned him a place on stages such as Bonnaroo, SXSW, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, Hangout Fest, Life is Beautiful Festival, and Sundance Film Festival.
This week, the guys recap Thanksgiving and discuss more holiday plans, plus news, upcoming events and more!
And this week's #NUartist is EZA! EZA, (pronounced Eh-Za) is 21-year old Ellery Bonham, an exceptional vocalist and musician who writes her music primarily using vocal loops and synthesizers. The colors and patterns she’s able to see while writing have translated into her moody, vibrant and magnetic sound. Her first EP Means of Escape was released in July 26, 2014.
No banter this week as Matt and Shawn are at SXSW in Austin, TX. Instead they sat down for an in-depth conversation with revered singer-songwriter Matthew Perryman Jones!
Matthew Perryman Jones has a voice that calls out with intensity, truth and emotion. Jones began his career in 1997 in Decatur, GA, and then, after moving to Nashville to pursue music full-time, he issued his first solo release, Nowhere Else But Here, in 2000. As American Songwriter describes, “Matthew’s voice ensnares listeners with a rare authenticity and gritty strength."
Jones’ songs have also been featured in television shows including Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Bones, Pretty Little Liars, NY Med, Flash Point, One Tree Hill, The Hills, and Eli Stone as well as in the 2012 movie release What To Expect When You Are Expecting.
In addition to Jones’ own headline tours, he has shared the bill with Katie Herzig, Matthew Mayfield, and Joshua James and has opened for such artists as Ingrid Michaelson, Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin and Paula Cole. Jones is also an original member of the nationally acclaimed Nashville collaborative artist group “Ten Out of Tenn”.
This week, Matt and Shawn talk about St. Patty's Day celebrations! They also talk about the new app OrderUp, Emi Sunshine, and their upcoming SXSW trip!
And this week's #NUArtist is Ten Out of Tenn (TOT)! Before Nashville was the “it city.” Before there was a hit TV show on ABC and before Hollywood stars like Nicole Kidman had moved into town. Before award-winning, elite ranking restaurants and boutique hot spots existed. And long before The Black Keys, Kings of Leon and even Meghan Trainor were calling Nashville home, there was already a movement brewing outside the walls of the country music scene. Their forward thinking may not have broken headlines, but this community of artists banded together and forever changed the game for emerging indie artists. Meet Ten Out of Tenn.
The Nashville Scene released it's annual list "You're So Nashville If..." Matt and Shawn go through many of them and also tease several upcoming events. They are also announcing a new contest!
And this week's #NUartist is Isaac Hayden. Hayden was signed by Sam Brooker to an artist development and publishing deal with Artist Revolution Records in 2013. Sam and Isaac are currently finishing work on Isaac’s debut album featuring cameos from some awesome local and national talent such as The McCrary Sisters, Jeremy Lister, Daniel Ellsworth and Jared Kneale, who is now playing drums for Kacey Musgraves.
Nashville Underground Radio is back at Country Radio Seminar (CRS) again this year! This week they recap the event and feature interviews with Old Dominion, Craig Campbell, David Shelby, Lucas Hoge, LoCash, Hannah Bethel, Mitch Goudy, Rainey Qualley, Will Hoge, Kristian Bush and more!
