Oh. Man. I have such a treat for y’all!
East of 8th has partnered with AGD Entertainment to curate a showcase to surpass all other showcases. This Thursday, June 16th, an uber-talented lineup of five bands/artists from far and wide will appear at The Country, the newest, most happening joint in Music City:
Nashville’s Tim McNary released his mesmerizing EP, Above The Trees, in April. The singer-songwriter has already had several lifetimes of experiences from which he can draw musical inspiration; after college, he ventured alone to South America, backpacked through Peru and Bolivia, eventually landing in Brazil, teaching English to children. After moving back to the States, McNary began pursuing music full time, and made the move to Nashville for community and growth opportunities. “I lived in my van for three months, camping in a Walmart parking lot in town,” recalls McNary. That same van was stolen shortly thereafter, as were his possessions and music gear. Not one to stay down for long, McNary decided to put his Spanish skill to use and worked in a Mexican restaurant in Nashville. “I just dug in, worked as hard as I could to make and save money for two years, and continued to write music,” he says.
Finally, he raised the funds needed to record and release Above The Trees; the songs were recorded in a cabin nestled in the rural mountains of Georgia, an environment which inspired him to transmit the the perfect amount of emotional attention to the songs. In Above The Trees, McNary embraces his past while recounting his hardship and experience with conviction, but reminds us, with his music and the way he lives his life, that the real beauty is found in the wandering.
