REVIEW: KNOX HAMILTON at THE EVENING MUSE on 10/18/14

Y’all know how I feel about Knox Hamilton.  When I first heard their music, I just had to track them down for an interview.  Then a glorious thing happened…they teamed up with Colony House for a tour.  SWOON.   It was a sad, sad day when I found out I would be out of town for their…

REVIEW: CALEB HAWLEY at THE HIGH WATT on 10/9/14

Touring to support Side 1 and Side 2, the two EPs he released this year, Caleb Hawley has been criss-crossing the country, bringing a little sunshine and a whole lot of soul to the masses.  The night I’d been waiting for had finally arrived; Caleb was rolling into the Music City for a show at The High Watt, and…

REVIEW: BUDDY at 3RD & LINDSLEY on 10/4/14

Singer/songwriter Buddy was in Nashville recently, on a short acoustic tour with fellow singer/songwriter Meiko (whose songs are so darn catchy and relatable they remained stuck in my head until…no, wait, still stuck there). I’d spoken with Buddy earlier about his recently-relased LP Last Call For The Quiet Life, which he’d been touring to support with his…

#tbt MY ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME CAGE THE ELEPHANT EXPERIENCE

At the end of each summer, Nashville hosts a weekly outdoor (and free!) concert series called Live On The Green.  Every year I eagerly await the lineup announcement, so I can plan accordingly of course, and this year’s lineup was…in a word…spectacular.  Unfortunately, the weather refused to cooperate the first two weeks, and since I know…

SHOW PREVIEW: CALEB HAWLEY at THE HIGH WATT on 10/09/14

Soul music is coming back, and so is Caleb Hawley! YAY! I sat down with him for an interview when he was in town back in the spring; we caught up again on the phone the other day, such a sweetheart, and so incredibly talented!  If you missed the show the last time he played Nashville, like…

SHOW PREVIEW: BUDDY at 3RD & LINDSLEY on 10/04/14

Beloved readers, allow me to introduce you to Buddy. I have had his recently-released album on pretty constant rotation lately.  You should definitely give it a listen, it sounds like Death Cab For Cutie and The Shins had a summer fling that resulted in the creation of this dreamy ray of musical sunshine and named it the Last…
