Unlike most of the musicians in Nashville, singer songwriter Jesse Wayne Taylor is a middle Tennessee native. Growing up with a love for music, he experimented with writing lyrics as young as 7 years old. While singing in church through out middle and high school, Jesse did not pick up the guitar until he was nearly 19. In his early years of college at Lipscomb University, he quickly realized that music would be a very big part of his life. While still in school he played around town any chance he could get. Following his college graduation, he decided to give the full time musician dream a chance. Over two years he has played in the bars to make a living, and to “cut his teeth”. Jesse has been writing songs all throughout this journey. If you love a good story, then lend him your ears. You won’t regret it.

The Young Fables.jpg

The Young Fables are the promising country duo comprised of three-time American Idol vet Laurel Wright and accomplished guitarist and vocalist Wesley Lunsford. The act hails from Maryville, TN and the team has already collected impressive accolades including the Grand Prize of the Texaco Country Showdown which landed Laurel on the Ryman Auditorium Stage at age 16. 

 

Today, The Young Fables can be found playing all over the country supporting their debut release “TWO”, as well as gracing the pages of many country music columns including the world renown "The Boot”.  Laurel and Wes are recognized for their prolific online presence, featuring numerous video collections, including the fan favorite “Covering Your Tracks” series. Since winning the Nashville finals of NASH FM’s countrywide NASH NEXT competition, the radio giant has embraced the duo as an America's Morning Show favorite, regularly highlighting The Young Fables' songwriting strength in the Ten Minute Tune segment. 

 

It is not hard to understand why Laurel and Wes have been turning heads. Country music staple Keith Urban claims Laurel’s voice “had me immediately” and BIG MACHINE CEO, Scott Borchetta went as far as to label her tone and control,“a flawless vocal”.

MIXING TOGETHER TENNESSEE TWANG, SOUTHERN STORYTELLING, AND A BIG, BOOMING BARITONE, JAMES CAROTHERS MAKES THROWBACK COUNTRY MUSIC FOR MODERN TIMES.

It's an old-school sound that ignores the trends of contemporary radio. You won't find any bro-country songs here. No Auto Tuned vocals, either. Instead, Carothers dishes up a reminder of country music's golden years — a time filled with fiddle solos, analog production, and slyly simple songs about heartaches and hangovers. His first full-length album, Relapse, available May 5th, 2017, offers plenty of all three.

If Relapse bears similarities to classic releases by George Jones, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, it's because Carothers wrote most of the songs between daily gigs at The George Jones in Nashville. Since its opening in 2015, he's performed hundreds of shows at the venue, playing acoustic duo sets throughout the week with loyal sideman Jerry Lee Combs on bass and a weekly Saturday night band show on The George Jones Rooftop. George Jones' own widow, Nancy, personally hired Carothers for the gig, giving him the opportunity to do something he’s thankful for and that so many aspiring artists moving to Nashville only dream of doing – make a living playing music.

Dylan Taylor with special guest Kyle Nachitigal

image1 (4).jpeg

Born in Atlanta, GA, but raised in Nashville from the age of 11, Dylan Taylor has unapologetically explored herself as an artist/writer on the stages of Music City while growing into the artist she is today. Dylan credits her writing ability and style primarily to her father, Karl Braun, (formerly a rock singer/songwriter now turned entertainment attorney), and singer/songwriter, Harley Allen. Harley ended up being her father’s best friend when they got to town.

Dylan also credits her own life which has already been filled with the experiences that inspire classic songs. Most of which have to do with the world of mental illness and addiction, something she’d been exposed to and in turn, learned to navigate at a younger age than most. She later survived her own rock bottom and found herself in recovery at age 20 while in the middle of her first pub deal, her first tour dates and shortly after releasing her first EP. 

Dylan’s next 2 projects were described as dark, moody, almost disturbing but with undeniably unique and masterful lyrics set to melodies that crossed genres enough to become her own thing. This difference became one of her greatest qualities but also her biggest frustration. As she grew as an artist, and Nashville began to change, it seemed harder and harder to find an established industry place to call home; people didn’t understand Dylan and Dylan didn’t understand why they wouldn’t try. So she abandoned the path she’d grown up watching her friends travel (and expected to travel herself) for a path guaranteed to be more difficult, but which would allow her to be herself and, as she would say, “make for better writing material.”

That decision lead her through a multitude of good and bad situations that seemed to shape her into somewhat of a Nashville music industry rebel, pushing the limits with her lyrics and subject matter, while also refusing to adjust her naturally unique appearance at all. Like any true artist, you can hear Dylan’s journey in her music and feel her passion when you see her perform live. She’s released one single so far this year, “Sarah Dreaming,” and she’s poised to release another single soon while also working on a new 6 song EP.

The Hogslop String Band

The Hogslop String Band is a Nashville based old time string band comprised of four energetic young musicians hailing from Georgia & Tennessee.  Featuring Kevin Martin on the fiddle, Gabriel Kelley on guitar, Daniel Binkley on banjo and Casey "Pickle" McBride on the washtub bass, these boys surely raise a ruckus.

Upon forming as a pickup square dance band in the summer of 2009, The Hog Slop String Band has since become one of the most sought after old time string bands. Known for their outrageous facial hair and a rollicking repertoire heavily based on Georgia and Middle Tennessee fiddle tunes, these boys have provided entertainment for fashion shows, political conventions and whiskey distilleries as well as countless weddings, festivals and soirees.

Following in the footsteps of such country music luminaries as Uncle Dave Macon and Gid Tanner, they put on a high energy show easily appreciated by both young and old alike.  Despite an unkempt appearance, their undeniable charm is as certain to steal your heart as it will your daughters!

Chelsea Bain (with special guest Rachel Farley)

unspecified-7.jpeg

When you hear Chelsea Bain belt out a song – be it a beautiful ballad or rousing rocker – you know it comes straight from her heart.

A distinctive vocalist and instinctive songwriter, every word she writes and every note she sings proves her strength, her passion, is born from experience.

Chelsea harbored two great passions as she was growing up on an Arizona farm. When not listening to Shania Twain or the Dixie Chicks, Chelsea picked up a love for horses from that cowboy culture in which she was raised. As young as 4 years old, she was trying her luck at barrel racing. Later she graduated to doing breed shows. Sometimes her two interests intersected — on one occasion, with embarrassing results.

“One of the classes I was competing in was right after the break where I’d been asked to sing the national anthem,” she remembers. “After I sang, I hurried back toward the stall, holding my chaps up. My horse was ready to go. They’re throwing my jacket on me and saying, ‘You’re next! Are you ready?’”

She laughs, and then observes, “I guess I get it in my head sometimes that I can take on the world. I can do everything at once. And it’ll all be fine.”

It’s easy to see why. In addition to winning more than 10 world and national titles in the American Paint Horse Association, this determined young woman won notice around Phoenix by singing at rodeos, giving vocal recitals and performing in grade-school productions of ChicagoLes Miserablesand other Broadway shows. “I was extremely competitive about it,” she recalls. “There were some interesting moments between some girls and me, battling it out for solos.”

Still, Chelsea didn’t have many opportunities to perform her first love, country music, in her hometown. And so, like so many other hopefuls, at just 19 years old she made the move to Music City.

Much of her learning process came from performing nearly 30 weekends per year at NASCAR and NHRA racing events. “NASCAR taught me everything about getting up onstage and being in front of a crowd,” Chelsea says. “The people aren’t there for a concert. They’re there to see Dale Junior. To play to thousands of people in those circumstances is one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do. Every single weekend, I had to win them over and share my music with brand new people. Luckily, and I’m thanking God for this, they loved it and I built an entire fan base from it.”

Always a songwriter, Chelsea’s creativity, heart and outright boldness were ramped up to an entirely new level when she befriended singer/songwriter Rachel Farley. The two began collaborating, and Farley helped pull out emotions and attitudes Chelsea wasn’t even aware she possessed. The two co-wrote all five songs on Chelsea’s upcoming EP, and songwriter/producer/instrumentalist Jordan Sapp joined them on four of tracks.

Having learned, matured, reexamined her roots without letting go of the high-energy throttle, Chelsea is very candid about her next project. “This new music really showcases who I am as a writer and an artist,” Chelsea explains. “I’ve gone through so much in life since I was a kid,” she muses. “It’s taken a long time to figure out how I wanted to put all that I’ve experienced together and incorporate it into my music. But now I feel that the next album is exactly what I want it to be — Chelsea Bain, through and through.”

She smiles, having spoken as she sings, with the power of truth, assurance and total confidence.

Tony Keats (Album Release Party)

Tony Keats.jpeg

A fork in the road doesn't always look like a poem. To Tony Keats, it looked like a guy cashing in the nickels and dimes he’d saved to try out a different path. Or what he thought of as a different life.

Tony had spent the entirety of his 20s traveling with his band in a van bouncing around the Southeast playing college towns and juke joints from Georgia to Ohio and Memphis to Virginia before settling in Nashville.

“It got to the point where I was waiting tables between rehearsals and shows and saving my change, literally in jars. Frustrated from what felt like a lack of growth, I cashed it in at a grocery store, bought a computer and enrolled in software programming class."

It led to a different life professionally. But he wasn’t giving up on art or the dream – just finding a way to balance it all and learning that the writing happens always through experience, even when it doesn’t look and feel like writing.

"This was before everyone had Garage Band on their laptop and a recording devise in their pocket. What I didn't realize was that this would ultimately move me into the direction that I thought I was drifting away from." 

For the next chapter, in between his day job, Tony transitioned to a guitar-player-for-hire role playing with a wide variety of singer-songwriters both live and in the studio. But he never stopped writing leaving scraps in notebooks, and eventually, melodies on voice recordings and in computer programs.

Radio Sounds is a collection of songs from recent years. It was recorded at Howard’s Apartment Studio in Nashville and produced by Dave Coleman. 

“Most of these songs reflect on growth, change and continuing to move towards something -- whether it be art, love or happiness. I no longer think in terms of destinations or end results but more in terms of paths and changes.” 

In the song "The Dream," Keats alludes to that age-old philosophy recognized by many, regardless of their path: “When you dream of something for so long / it’s not the something that sets you free / it’s the dream.

Mark Addison Chandler

Mark was born into a North Carolina family of Southern Gospel singers.  While Mark’s music is unmistakably country, gospel harmonies are just as much at the core of his sound as his dad’s classic country records. Mark was on the church stage from four through his teens years.  His dreams of Nashville would wait as he joined the Army after High School.  

 

During his early years in the Army, Mark had the opportunity to perform for three presidents as a member of the West Point Glee Club. The demands of the Army due to the War on Terror prevented Mark’s pursuit of music for most of his military career, but in the final two years of his career, Mark began writing songs and reconnected to his musical roots.  In 2014 and 2015, he wrote and recorded his debut album that he released in Apr 2015. During this period he performed Texas venues to include the legendary Rosa’s Cantina in El Paso, TX.

 

Mark retired from the Army in 2015 and moved to Nashville where he now pursues his music full time as an artist and songwriter.  Mark plays regularly in Nashville and his home state of NC. Increasingly he is playing other venues throughout the Country.  He is currently working on his second album (scheduled for release late 2018).

 

Mark Addison Chandler.png

Mark is making a name for himself as a songwriter penning numerous songs other artists have recorded.  In Feb 2018, Jake Ward had a #1 hit on Texas Country Radio with a song Mark cowrote.  Mark also cowrote the first single off Spencer Crandall’s current record that debuted #1 on iTunes in Mar 2018.  Mark also cowrote Josh Gallagher’s latest single “How Bout You”.  The video reached #1 on CMT’s 12-pack countdown in Mar 2018.
