PHOTOS: The It City Presents Make It Look Easy at Mercy Lounge
On any night in Nashville, you can find premier musicianship in any corner of the city.
Last Tuesday night, we found it along Cannery Row.
The It City, a multi-genre collective of some of Nashville’s most prolific session musicians, hosted their first Make It Look Easy showcase at Mercy Lounge. The band — whose lively and entertaining show fuses elements of rock, soul, funk, and pop — headlined a lineup of professional musicians and singers who have performed alongside the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Drew Holcomb, Hank Williams, Jr., Kris Kristofferson, David Nail, A Thousand Horses, Johnny Lang, Jake Owen, and many of music’s most prominent acts.
Included in that lineup were a quartet of some of the most powerful up-and-coming voices in Nashville’s pop and R&B landscape today, including Berry, Robin Raynelle, Katie Colosimo, and Stephcynie.
A word on Stephcynie’s set: the conceptual storytelling and overall production were particularly well-crafted, giving her performance a big-stage feel. Add the Houston native’s powerhouse voice and larger-than-life presence to the mix, and it makes for a vivid performance art experience from a superstar in the making.
