Niles Rooker
Niles Rooker
Aspiring to bring back classic sounds from the 50s and 60s, Niles Rooker and Jeff Meloen started a blues/rock duo in August of 2014. "It was just two friends getting together every day to play muddy blues songs and make the neighbor's lives difficult." –Rooker. With the addition of bassist, Ryan Lemp, Rooker was able to achieve a wider dynamic of songwriting as well as a thicker sound as a band. With a plethora of new originals, the trio has performed in familiar places such as the Mercy Lounge, The End, High Watt, and other hotspots throughout Nashville, TN.
Creature Comfort
Creature Comfort
Creature Comfort is a Nashville-based four-piece that offer a refreshing and alternative take on traditional indie rock. The band thrives in the delicate spaces between experimental and approachable, penning highly-versatile pop tunes that dabble in everything from psych to surf to folk to country.

The close-knit quartet of Middle Tennessee natives hail from disparate musical backgrounds, but all share an energetic passion for inventive songwriting and a hands-on productionstyle. Three-fourths of the quartet grew up together, but it was not until college that they decided to play music on the same team. Soon after they formed Creature Comfort, releasing their well-received, debut album Fox Tales in 2013. An impressivecollection of alternative rock jams, Fox Tales features emotive lyrics and sweeping guitar licks, paired with mobile bass lines and unique production effects. Creature Comfort played numerous shows and multiple tours in support of their debut. After, they took a brief hiatus and retreated to the studio, returning in May 2016 with a new EP Echoes & Relics.

On Echoes & Relics, the band has fully settled into their sound. The EP is full of lush vocals and shimmering guitar tones, thanks to the ever-evolving, production wizardy of guitarist and in-house producer Cole Bearden. In addition, increasingly-sophisticated songwriting from frontman and rhythm guitarist Jessey Clark and matured compositions from the quartet help make for a highly-absorbing batch of songs.
