NEW SHOW ALERT: The Z-Man Experience, Borrowed Sparks, and Uplander at The Cobra on May 21

We’ve got photos coming from the most recent NashLive! show at The Cobra Nashville, featuring Pepperwood and Nicole Boggs & The Reel.

While you wait for those, we’re excited to tell you that we’ll be back there on Saturday, May 21 with The Z-Man Experience, Borrowed Sparks, and Uplander.

Midwestern-made Zach Cleven is an eclectic singer-songwriter who goes by the stage name of Z-Man. He is known for his idiosyncratic style and new genre of music, which is best described as a fusion of scat-acoustic-funk. His energetic stage presence and focus on his original works has fueled his passion of sharing his music globally, and audiences find deep appreciation for his talent and love of music. His distinctive style of music is truly described as one-of-a-kind, and he’s performed all over the country in places such as Rockwood Music Hall, SteelBridge Song Festival, The Bowery Electric and the world-famous Bluebird Cafe.

What happens when you combine the raw heartfelt honesty of a singer-songwriter with the simmer angst of punk rock? You get Borrowed Sparks (Mike Bay), who has spent years drawing from these two contrasting styles to distill a batch of songs that feel like quiet confessions being shouted from the back of a dive bar.

Uplander, formed by songwriter Riley Haynie, pulls from shoegaze, post-punk, goth, and new wave. The result?Atmospherically heavy songs that maintain an edge of pop sensibility and appeal.

The best part? This is another free one in The Cobra’s front room! Music kicks off at 7:30 p.m., and you must be 21 or older to enter!
