Denman
Denman
Formed in the spring of 2016 by brothers Ben, and Dakota Denman, recent Nashville transplants who had a vision: taking the Nashville music scene by storm, with hard rock/ heavy metal songs that are raw and full of attitude. They'll put on a show full of energy that takes you back in time to a sweaty rock show some years ago. Their sound is rounded out by the Swedish heavy hitter on drums, Ted Karol, and fellow Nashville Hard Rocker, Robbie Crede on bass. Soon after forming, they found themselves being produced by Michael Wagener, and sharing the stage with Mr Big, Beasto Blanco, Alice Cooper, and more. Their debut EP 'The life we live was released in 2017, and a full length album is being recorded by Wagener early 2018.
The Tip
The Tip
With the hunger and desire to play full on, high-energy Rock and Roll, the members of The Tip founded the band in Nashville, Tennessee in the summer of 2014. Not wasting any time, the band quickly hit the road and released an EP, followed by its
full-length self-titled debut album in 2015. Persistent touring activity around the country, countless home town shows and the 2016 album release of "Sailor's Grave" have led to opening spots for The Darkness, Buckcherry, Sebastian Bach, Geoff Tate's Operation Mindcrime, The Last Vegas and back to back festival appearances at Rocklahoma.

In 2017 the band continued to work the road in the U.S. and released "Sailor's Grave" on German label SAOL, which caught the attention of local and other European rock media resulting in many positive reviews in publications such as Classic Rock, Metal
Hammer and Rock It! Magazine. In 2018, the band will continue to tour the States and will appear at the annual Kid Rock Cruise after being hand picked by the man himself during a Nashville encounter. In the near future, The Tip hopes to expand its
touring activity to other markets such as Europe, Japan and Latin America. The band's music is a manifest to its no-nonsense, adrenaline fueled, hard-rocking attitude. As the song proclaims: "What you see is what you get, no we ain't fakin' it!"
Taco Mouth
Taco Mouth
Taco Mouth is the staunchly political brainchild of Erica Sellers, who grew up in Louisville, KY and began her musical journey in 1999 after begging her parents for a guitar. In the summer of 2011, after playing in several bands, Sellers decided to start one of her own. This new project led to her meeting drummer Angela Lese through a mutual friend. They hit it off, socially and musically, and started a band called CatFight. Erica wrote all the music and lyrics, and the band signed to a local label, Little Heart Records, publishing their self-titled EP in 2011. After gaining regional notoriety, Lese relocated to Nashville in 2012, making it difficult for CatFight to play shows. After immersing herself in the Nashville music scene, Angie pleaded with her best friend to move to town so they could continue performing together. By the time Erica moved in the late fall of 2013, Angie had already started playing music with three other girls in town. Eventually, Erica was invited to one of the rehearsals, and that night a new band, The Dead Deads, were born. After several national tours and two full-length albums, Erica and Angie left The Dead Deads in October of 2017 and have gone back to their roots of having fun and making music that matters most to them, morphing their love for old school, angsty rock 'n roll and dance music into one.



In late 2017, Taco Mouth was born, a mash-up of 60s-era rock and pop hooks; think the Ramones and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, or The Runaways and Awolnation. They’ve since added their very talented lead guitarist Shawn Hammer (engineer of Chevelle, Conor Oberst, Cursive) and badass bassist Flip Cooper (Damon Johnson, Brother Cane). Taco Mouth is produced by the master himself, Michael Wagener (Dokken, Metallica, Skid Row, etc.), and together they’ve created what feels like a true musical reemergence. Politics and partying; rock grooves and pop hooks; a movement. No matter how you categorize Taco Mouth, they’ll make you experience a night similar to the old CBGB days where rock mattered. The underdog mattered. That’s what this Taco Mouth movement is all about.



This year, Taco Mouth has already released an EP entitled ‘W.G.A.F.’ (available now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play), which has been nominated for NIMA’s Best Rock Album by their peers (nimadigital.com). The video from the first single off of the EP, Let’s Get a Little Bit, is available on YouTube. And if that wasn’t enough, the band has had a busy summer recording their first, full-length album with Wagener, and booking shows opening for large rock acts (Beasto Blanco, MC5, etc.). Their new album will include four newly recorded songs off of their EP, as well as six brand new songs. From drunken nights to taking down bullies, and even defying the president, the album is full of head-shaking hooks, and most importantly, the fire that fuels punk rock music. Look for Taco Mouth’s new album, ‘A Deafening Silence,’ to be released in late October.
