Death, taxes, and change: they’re the only three things you can rely on, and
nobody knows about the latter better than Creature Comfort. Since the release of
2016’s Echoes and Relics, the local quintet has navigated through personal
turmoil and lineup changes to arrive at what can only be described as a total
rebirth. Now, as they prep the release of their upcoming full length, Home Team,
they’re back with hard-earned wisdom and an even harder-won sound.
Frontman Jessey Clark’s anthemic, heart-on-your sleeve lyrics and end-of-the-
day vocals haven’t gone anywhere, but on Home Team, the writing is—thanks in
no small part to new lead guitarist Charlie Hickerson—backed by a rawer sound
that draws on the band’s Tullahoma, Tennessee roots. Add in multi-
instrumentalist Alex Robinson’s lush backing vocals, Cole Bearden’s ever-mobile
bass, and Taylor Cole’s spry drumming, and you’ve got record that the band has
affectionately dubbed “bootgaze.” Think of it as Fleet Foxes for people who grew
up bailing hay, or your favorite indie record—if that record were scattered,
smothered, and covered, of course.

Aaron Friend & the Enemies
Expanding your repertoire is a challenge many artists never overcome. Aaron
Friend has used that notion as his primary motivation in writing, recording, and
producing the new “Colors” EP, to be released later this winter.
Aaron has lived and breathed the Nashville music scene for a decade by
writing, producing, and licensing music for himself and other artists across the
east coast. The past year, he has worked stages and songwriter nights in some
of the most notable institutions in Music city; Mercy Lounge, The High Watt,
Hotel Indigo, The Basement, The Boro, 3rd and Lindsley, and several other
establishments.
The recordings, on ‘Colors’ release pull influences from David Bowie, The

Killers, and other upbeat, iconic indie rock. Colors spectrum of songs were co-
written and produced by Ryan Truso and Jackson Eppley of Your Not My Dad.

Truso and Eppley have claimed song placements through television and film
worldwide, and even garnered recognition at the London Production Music
Awards being nominated for Best Pop Song.
‘Colors’ has served Aaron Friend & the enemies as a creative awakening that
has stirred a new fire for performing in the heart of a tried and true artist. Be
sure to book Aaron for your next show while he is available to add spark to
your stage.
Saint Dorian
Saint Dorian
The Millennials is a rock/noir act from Nashville, TN, the vision of singer/songwriter Bennett Keenan brought to life by keyboardist and producer Matthew Vero.

Keenan and Vero met soon after they both moved to Nashville in late 2016. There was a creative spark immediately and they recorded their first demo as The Millennials in summer of 2017, releasing their debut single, Fucked Up American Dream, that December. Shortly after, Keenan and Vero left university to pursue the band’s success. The Millennials are currently recording their debut EP, due for release Summer 2019.
The Made and the Born
The Made and the Born
The Made and The Born is a pop duo based in Nashville, Tennessee. Originally from Miami, they set out to pursue a unique blend of an indie-pop and rock, echoing the work of artists such as The Killers, M83, Oasis, and St. Lucia.
The project came to life when singer and songwriter Julio Berrones met Joe Lamberson in 2009. The two hit it off fueled by shared musical tastes and a kindred spirit, and it didn’t take long before they started writing songs together.

Their brand new single, “Runaway”, was released on July 7th. It was produced by Adam Stark and Jordan Phillips of Apollo LTD and mixed by Mike “X” O’Connor.
