SORT BY Relevancy
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.
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.
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, Matt and Shawn break a brand new artist on the show! Laura McCormick's first single, her first album, her first radio interview... right here on Nashville Underground Radio, as we WORLD PREMIERE her song "Feel The Fire!"
With a voice comparable to that of Bonnie Raitt, Ann Wilson of Heart, and Linda Ronstadt, McCormick mixes power vocals with gut wrenching songwriting, blending her folk and country roots with her classic rock upbringing. After working as an ICU nurse for the past six years, Laura is now following her dreams into music, and brings a fierce set of pipes with her debut album Box Full of Trouble.
This week Matt and Shawn also discuss Lollapalooza, American Idol, birthday celebrations and more!
From April 16 - 27, Nashville turns from Music City to Movie City as the Nashville Film Festival (NaFF) takes place. In an extended 10-day celebration of film, NaFF is in two locations for the first time: Regal Green Hills Stadium 16 with 200 competition film, educational presentations and parties, and downtown at Nissan Multicultural Village, Walk of Fame Park with free outdoor films nightly and Happy Hour Shorts at Festival Pub.
Matt and Shawn will give some movie reviews of the films they screened, and speak to several artists (both actors and musicians) involved in various projects including Blake Rayne, Linds Edwards, Ashley Shelton and more!
On April 7 2013, Matt Williams and Shawn Carnes began broadcasting Nashville Underground Radio with the intention of bringing the real Nashville to the rest of the world - especially its ecclectic music scene. One year later, the show that started on one cell phone in a living room is becoming a solidified brand name in the Nashville community.
And we couldn't do it without the artists we've featured each week. That's why, one year later, we are celebrating the music LIVE at The Sound Shelter studio with performances by: Jamie Meyer, Ella Mae Bowen, Matt Giraud, Ben Sturgell, Erika Cole, Them Vibes, Rebecca Roubion, Zeke Duhon, Kayla Nettles, and Matt Bednarsky, with special appearances by Lindsay Ell, Elle Maze, Timothy James Bowen and Kylie Rothfield!
Plus, the guys have a special announcement!
in Real Estate
Too many times in my experience I have seen homeowners make terrible mistakes in picking a listing agent to sell their Nashville home. In this episode, I am going to share some lessons I have learned as a Real Estate Broker that every homeowner should be doing before they make a decision on a listing agent
Coming up in June: #NUartist Zeke Duhon is performing at The Stone Fox on the 3rd at 8pm and Musicians Corner on the 7th at 2pm. And today's guest is Nashville Underground Management's Kylie Rothfield, who will be performing at Nashville Pride on the 14th at noon, The Bluebird Cafe on June 22 at 6pm AND the Instruments of Joy Benefit on the 29th!
Crafting songs that combine elements of soul, blues and pop, Kylie Rothfield’s music is unique, honest, and universally appealing. Although her vocal ability is undeniable, she is also an accomplished self-taught guitarist, being able to support her captivating live stage show as a solo acoustic performer or with a full band. Her self-released debut EP “Rag Doll” – produced by Russ Pahl and set for release April 13th - is truly a testament to her artistry.
This week, Matt and Shawn talk the CMA Awards despite not being involved. They did, however attend the Broken Bow Records' pre party! Matt also went to see O.A.R., and shawn went to Birmingham, AL.
We also feature an interview with Jen DeLia and James Worte from the independent film Billy Bates! The film explores the fiery world of Billy, a thirty-year old enigmatic artist. On the one hand, Billy’s reality is a kaleidoscope of artistic beauty and on the other, an extremely troubled existence. As Billy floats the tightrope between brilliance and madness, he seeks solace in overcoming his personal inner-demons.
And this week's #NUartist is Koa! Koa was formed in 2012 at Belmont University by Chase Bader (vocals and acoustic guitar) and Conor Kelly (lead guitar). After writing their first EP, “Cool It Down,” members Ryan Ladd (bass), Will Youngclaus (drums), Alex Mathews (saxophone) and Ryan McClanahan (percussion) came together to form the soulful beach-rock sound that is Koa.
A tree fell on Matt's house. He and Shawn discuss that, plus Zeke Duhon and Kylie Rothfield at ALoft Hotel, the shows they missed out on, Emblem 3 and more! They also feature an interview and an amazing performance by Striking Matches and a hilarious interview with local improv group LOLNashville!
Striking Matches, made up of Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis, came to Nashville simply to play music. In December 2012, Striking Matches made their debut on the Grand Ole Opry where they have subsequently played more than twenty times. The duo has had six songs featured on ABC’s hit show Nashville. They became the first artist signed to the newly launched I.R.S. Records Nashville with their debut full length effort produced by T-Bone Burnett and Buddy Miller to be released in 2014.
LOL Nashville is a short and long-form improv comedy troupe. Every part of every show is unscripted and is made up on the spot with the help of suggestions from the audience. Every improv show they have performed has been sold out, which meant the troupe has had to secure a large performance space for the rest of the year.
Matt and Shawn took their first road trip as a management team last weekend. Well... sort of. One of the guys made it and one didn't! On this week's show they tell the tail, and also about a random trip to Atlanta. They also revisit some of the teasers from last week!
And this week's featured artist is Juston Stens. After playing drums for six years in the popular indie-rock band Dr. Dog, Stens set out on his own to front his own band, the Get Real Gang, and play his own songs. A self-taught guitar player, bassist, piano player, drummer and singer, Stens challenged himself by traveling across America on a motorcyle to connect with musician friends across the country and record songs in their personal spaces. The journey was documented in the recent film by Andrew Stubbs, I Lay Where I Fall, which premiered at the Nashville Film Festival in April. The resulting musical collaborations are available now for the first time on the album, Share the Road.
This week Matt and Shawn talk about some Nashville news and the chill that has fallen over the city. They also went to an album release party, a charity event and another Zeke Duhon show!
And this week's #NUartist is Jenna Scott! An old soul with a new feel and beautiful voice, Jenna is a student at Belmont University excited to share her adventures and anything she finds worth sharing. After being introduced to the producer Bridge Town, Jenna's world opened up into new realms of music making, and has informed her process ever since.
