NEW SHOW ALERT: Pepperwood, Ali Aslam, and Mary Jennings at The East Room June 19
Let’s finish the week the way it began — with a NashLive! show announcement!
This one’s a special one, too, as it marks NashLive!’s long-awaited return to The East Room, where this whole post-COVID live music experience began.
So, the details? It’s Sunday, June 19. It’s $10 at the door. It’s 18 and up to enter, and it features an eclectic lineup of Pepperwood, Ali Aslam, and Mary Jennings.
Pepperwood, the brainchild of Nashville native songwriter Zach Wyatt, has been described as many things — and most of them good. They have a hard time fitting into a specific sound, as every band member listens to a wide range of genres with influences peppered throughout, but they’ve been compared to Relient K, Kings of Leon, Colony House, Temper Trap, and others. You may also recall that they joined NashLive! in April at The Cobra alongside Nicole Boggs & The Reel, and they tore it up!
Ali Aslam’s nuanced and expansive debut record, The Last American, easily holds seemingly conflicting but ultimately congruent perspectives in hand. One of the most optimistic, yet daunting themes across the record lies in the idea that we are ultimately responsible for the world we create. Aslam’s songs let us know we’re doing okay, but we can do better. “Is this what everybody’s dreaming?” he challenges us. Can we dream bigger, more inclusively, more expansively?
With a big voice and passionate, honest words, Mary Jennings is a fiery siren that packs a big punch with her small frame. Her highly personal and emotional singing style is raw and captivating. After years of touring and releasing music, she has come home and carved out her space in the Nashville scene.
