Oginalii
Oginalii
Native Rock from Nashville

Oginalii, (meaning "my friend" in Cherokee) was conceived between two friends in Nashville, Tenn. as a fruition of successful songwriting endeavors. Oginalii is now a full band of collaborative and unique musical talents and styles, playing together to create what others call an indie, psychedelic and native rock sound. Powerhouse vocals, tasty tasty guitar, a goddess of a drummer (who wrote this?) and a sound that can't be compared. Just come to a show, and hang.

"Fauna Halo may not be a household name in our part of the universe, but do yourself a favor, commit it to memory.
Fauna Halo is the intriguing stage name of Aubriana (she was too coy to reveal her last name to us), a former South Floridian with vocals so passionate, alluring, delicate, and empowering that she has superstar potential effusing from her every note.

A one-women-band, she takes to the stage with a keyboard, a xylophone, percussion instruments, a guitar, and some programming tools. Fauna Halo has the quirkiness of tUnE-yArDs' Merrill Garbus, but is much milder in her delivery. She has the charming appeal of Regina Spector and the lyrical immediacy of a St. Vincent.

You may ask, why haven't I ever heard of her, or seen her perform around town?
Simple. This young starlet has been working on an artist's development deal up in Nashville for the past two ears. She is one of those randomly struc -by-bolt-of lighting success stories "[The development agency ]discovered me on MySpace, I was still in high school, and they asked me to make the move to Nashville," said the affable former South Floridian.

We caught up with the gifted musician on the phone while she was supporting her friend at Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, TN. Fauna Halo wasn't on the bill though, but she hopes to grace the stage at the massive event in the near future.

She tells us that she has grown to love Tennessee, home to such legendary musical landmarks as the Grand Old Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Fauna Halo has been working on her debut record.

As for the debut Fauna Halo record, it's been two years in the making. She describes it as a personal piece, "It's a super sentimental, very melodic, weird, experimental indie affair."
Chico
Chico
CHICO is a 4-piece psychedelic garage rock band based out of Nashville Tennessee.
Born in 2014, CHICO is a conglomeration of musicians whose original lineup consisted of:

Greg Markus (Bass/Background Vocals) also of Plastic Visions, Big Horn, and Soft Crush.
Carson Mays (Lead Vocals/Guitar) also of Staying For The Weekend and Rich Nixon.
Ryan Quarles (Guitar/Background Vocals) also of Phobos.
Spencer Moore (Drums) also of Phobos, Chasm Of Teeth, and Animality.

After the recording of the Pipe Dreams EP, Jordan Levine briefly replaced Spencer Moore, but then was replaced by Colin Smith of Ayatollah Gold, Lucid Dream, and Future Dog.

Now since Collin has left the band to take on responsibilities of his own, Austin Seegers permanently and currently fills the role with his sweet spankin' bat-outta-hell beatin' fury and lovely demeanor.
Light Beam Rider
Light Beam Rider
Light Beam Rider is Mississippi music. However it does not follow the stereotypical norm of southern music. What began as an experimental instrumental band in 2009 slowly evolved into a more structured group with a melting pot of influences. Everything from precise math rock beats to guitar harmonies that pay homage to The Allman brothers band can be detected in their music. LBR's sound varies from ambient jams to structured choruses, all the way back to dancey intros. LBR does not have one specific group they are trying to reach. They want to reach a vast array of fans and the large differences in their songs mirrors this desire. Light beam rider has played over 300 shows since forming and has toured extensively over the southeast. Their most successful tour was in the spring of 2013 with native Mississippi friends "The Weeks," which consisted of six sold out shows. They have played three festivals including Bristerfest in Memphis, TN, Mallapalooza at the University of Dallas in Texas, and SXSW in Austin, TX. Their debut album, Mississippi, was self released in January of 2013 and is available on itunes, spotify, and Pandora.
