J. Marco
J. Marco
Long before moving to Nashville and kicking off his songwriting career, J. Marco listened to records in his Massachusetts bedroom, moving between the fast-moving fuzz of punk-rock and the hard-hitting hooks of pop music. Years later, he combines both of those genres and more on Days Of Surrender, his second album as a solo artist.

Days Of Surrender finds J. Marco pulling triple-duty as singer, songwriter, and lead guitarist. He covers a good deal of ground along the way, from the album's propulsive single, "Love Don't Matter" to the anthemic rock & roll of "See Her Tonight" "Now That It's Over" & "Say Goodbye.” Gluing the entire album together is an emphasis on guitar riffs and undeniable melodies, the same two ingredients that connected most of Marco's childhood influences.
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.
Whoa Dakota
Whoa Dakota
Since the release of her latest EP, “I’m a Liar” in 2015, Whoa Dakota (Jessica Ott) has truly come into her own. Building on the blues-based roots of her former band of the same name, Jess has grown her musical interests and influences, resulting in an amalgam of digital pop and R&B. Employing the help of local Nashville producers Gavin Shea and Chris Gill of HandMade Productions, Whoa Dakota has created a sound that truly stands out amongst her Nashville peers. From the grooving bass lines of “Mess Things Up” to the dreamy mellotron arrangements of the EP opening number, “Fragile Youth”, “I’m a Liar" has combined Ott's head-turning vocal with a pleasing blend of heartfelt lyrics and futuristic soundscapes. The newly released first single and video, “Banshee” was recently picked up by Nashville’s “Lightning 100” and is spun regularly as she continues to generate a solid buzz with her newly-founded solo efforts. As her momentum continues to grow heading into 2016, Whoa Dakota continues to be at the forefront of Music City’s up and comers. Download or stream “I’m a Liar” on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, etc.
