Chris Wilcox
Chris Wilcox
Chris Wilcox is a singer songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Born and raised in Baltimore, MD and having lived five years in Charleston, SC, Chris’s musical influence has no boundaries. His upcoming release, “Legacy”, displays his unique sound, blending his East Coast roots with his Southern experience as an artist. This release is a reborn project for Wilcox as the songs outline a lot the last few years of his life. From the passing of his father, to leaving Charleston for Nashville, Wilcox holds nothing back in his most honest work yet.

The tracks heard "Legacy" offer Wilcox as a detailed story teller, intertwining his education in poetry with both personal and imaginative stories to produce a body of work that displays his inherent talent as a songwriter.
Chris has been back in the studio with Matt Zutell (Coast Records), along with ‘the Boys', who he’s been playing with the last couple of years. A decision to track these songs live came at the birth of the project with the intent to capture the energy Chris & the Boys have developed with their live show. The project, fittingly called ‘Chris Wilcox & the Boys,’ will be released on streaming platforms this summer, along with an East Coast tour with the whole outfit, which includes Aaron Utterback (Bass, Human Resources), Paul Chelmis (Keys, Human Resources), Matt Zutell (Drums, Human Resources), and Peter Clark (Guitar, Ohio).
The Southern Gothic
The Southern Gothic
Since 2007, The Southern Gothic original members Connor (lead vox/ guitar/ piano), Spirko (fiddle/ guitar/ piano/ vocals) and Shawn Thacker (drums) have been bringing their unique brand of sun-baked, road-worn country, southern rock & soul to countless stages and fans across the US. Currently based in Nashville, TN, ’SoGo’ has shared stages with such artists as Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Big & Rich, Zac Brown Band, Styx, Uncle Kracker, Corey Smith, Gloriana, ZZ Top, Heart and more. The diverse nature of the artists with whom they’ve toured reflects the diversity of the band’s sound. “It works,” says Connor in regard to the varying nature of the audiences. “We’ve played to country crowds, rock crowds, young crowds, old crowds. We’ve played to jam band audiences and we’ve played bluegrass festivals. The response with all of them has been fantastic.”


Fantastic enough for Billboard Magazine to notice. TSG was named “Artist on the Verge” in Billboard’s Best Bets after debuting #1 on its Heat Seekers List. 2013 saw the band’s hit single “Sheets Down” stay on the fan-voted CMT Pure Countdown for 4 weeks, resulting in 60k views on YouTube. The band used this momentum to play hundreds of shows over thousands of miles in the next few years, perfecting their high-energy live show and growing their loyal fan base.
Locked and loaded for 2019, The Southern Gothic will hit the ground running with a highly anticipated new EP, a revamped live show, and Spring tour! Coming to a stage near you, don't miss your chance to see what all the hype is about.
Five Islands
Five Islands
Five Islands two lead members are siblings Daisy and Chap Bernet from Dallas, TX. The americana, folk duo’s debut single, “No More Dancing” was released in Nashville, TN in August 2018. Five Islands’ acoustic sounds and strong vocals are largely attributed to family; the Bernet's paternal grandfather was a touring musician and their maternal grandmother taught them hymnal music up in Five Islands, Maine every summer. The arts have always been a part of their lives. Chap's solo music career took him all across the California coast, NYC and ultimately to Nashville. Daisy grew up singing the National Anthem at every Dallas sporting event; she still brings that same vocal power to every room she sings in, large or small. The siblings are finally in the same city focusing on music.
