Brasko
Brasko
Brasko moved to Nashville from Akron, Ohio in 2011 at the age of 19. Young, and without many connections, he spent lots of nights on friend’s couches or even sleeping in his own car. Now 25, and working with hit-producer Cason Cooley, it’s safe to say Brasko has made his own way to his own sound in The New Nashville. Obsessed with old Todd Rundgren and David Bowie records, Brasko incorporates all his quirky influences—like cabaret and Burt Bacharach—into modern tunes he he hopes will be the background music to your next night out dancing, falling for someone special, and perhaps even making love.
Manrelic
Manrelic
A "Manrelic" consists of a saint's physical remains or belongings preserved for purposes of veneration as a tangible memorial. In this way, a Manrelic honors its predecessors.

Manrelic is Jared Park, a singer, Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, model and actor.

This Manrelic differs in that Jared seeks to carve his own path. It draws influence from a variety of places, musical and non-musical. There are nods to the larger-than-life characters throughout this past half-century. The synth work fluctuates between dreamy and anxiety-inducing. The drums and percussion pump, bump, and grind with quirkiness. The guitars, at times, cascade around you and then jump out at you like a snarling savage. The bass provides the ground-shaking low-end to fill the music out.

Manrelic wants you to hear something familiar, responsive to its context, but new. Whatever the case, just FEEL something.

Matt Koziol, age 22, is no stranger to the sounds of what most consider "the golden years of music." Born in Linden, New Jersey, he grew up listening to the world around him. Every sound that came out of the radio or tape deck flavored his music. Elvis was one of his largest influences growing up. "I really didn't know who he was until I was older, but I knew his name, and his music. At the age of 3, I knew what I wanted to do with my life."

Ten years later Matt picked up a guitar and began listening to classic rock (Led Zeppelin, Cream, Aerosmith, etc.) His musical experience was in motion. He studied all the great guitar players and singers trying to find what made them tick. "It was amazing to me to see the state of complete solitude these musicians went into while playing. It was like they were in a different world, and I wanted to see what that world was like!" The summer before his freshman year of high school Matt started writing his own music. Inspired by the many years of listening to James Taylor (his father's favorite artist), Matt began to work on his craft of song writing. During his high school years he was involved in local theatre groups, and worked on his vocal training singing classical music in the New Jersey All-State Choir.

"I knew at some point that I was a fairly decent guitar player, and I could sing, however I never knew how to put it all together until I heard John Mayer on the radio. His style really set me back and it was then that I realized what I'd been looking for! So I took what I learned from him and from the music made in the many years before him. Guys like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, all these great guys who played for that 'moment' and that's what put me over the edge, pushing me further into my career of being a musician. At 14 my music teacher urged me to do an open mic night at a local coffee shop. I haven't stopped performing since Those 10 minutes of pressure lit a fire in me."

A few short years later Matt has just released his second EP "Grace Matters." "This CD is a taste of what is to come. I wanted to bring the 'moment' back into the hearts of listeners. I want people have a chill run down their arm at the end of a CD like I had when I listened to Billy Joel's "Storm Front" the first time. That 'moment hasn't been around for a long time and its time for a second lap." He has performed in places all over the Tri- State Area, including the famous Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ and Sullivan Hall in New York City, NY. Matt is currently touring locally in an effort to spread his unique musical styling to as many listeners as possible. You can check out samples of his album "Grace Matters" on iTunes
Chris Wild
Chris Wild
"It’s been a hell of a year." says Christopher Wild in reference to his first year as a professional recording artist. In April 2014, Wild released his debut album on which he played and recorded all the instruments himself. Since it's release, he’s signed with Angry Mob Music Group in California, independently sold hundreds of vinyl copies of his self-titled record, scored two songs on Showtime Network’s series Shameless, won the Land the Big Gig competition at Summerfest in Milwaukee, and has been playing shows everywhere between Nashville and Milwaukee, even supporting Joan Jett in his hometown, Cleveland, Oh.

Wild began playing rock clubs while in high school on the west side of Cleveland, eventually leading him to participate in Live Nation’s High School Rock Off, winning the competition in his senior year. In 2009, he moved to Nashville to study Music Business where he played and became friends with dozens of artists including Torres and Natalie Prass. Wild headlined and won the annual Rock Showcase at Belmont University shortly before graduating with a degree in music business.


After college, he went back to Cleveland to begin work on his first LP using reel-to-reel tape recorders, recording each track in one continuous take. "I feel like there’s a lot of cheating going on in the recording industry. When I was working on my album, I wanted it to be an honest performance without all the punch-ins and edits." Wild’s recording technique is not only honest, but has been called "raw, gritty, explosive garage rock that is absolutely relentless from start to finish." by therevue.ca.

Wild's live performances feature his Nashville-based powerhouse trio, known for their sometimes titillating stage antics. After several festival appearances, the "Wild Trio" proves to be a hot attraction to both young adults and the elders of the classic rock era.

The 24-year-old is making more plans for 2016. "I’m beginning work on another album and we’re playing a lot of new cities and festivals and we had a great reception at Summerfest. Continuing touring and getting to South By Southwest and Bonnaroo are next on the agenda."
