While you enjoy your Sunday Funday, we turn your attention to next Sunday, August 7.
That’s when the Sunday Funday Crew — that’s Lord Goldie, Foundation Mecca, and ViB — will once again bring their Sunday Funday Xperience to Flash Me Xperience, located at 1048 Jefferson St. in Nashville.
A couple weeks back, we let you know that Music on the Move Studios had rescheduled their upcoming LGBTQ+ showcase — originally intended to take place on the eve of Nashville Pride Week — for Wednesday, August 31 at The East Room.
We’re back to tell you that the lineup is now complete!
Ender Bowen is a musician, author, filmmaker, and humanitarian with a lot to say, and plenty of methods by which to deliver his message. A relentless creative, Ender always has a new project (or a few) in the works, and he comes on The Quinn Spinn to discuss those projects, and his ever-evolving quest to keep them balanced with the other fulfilling areas of life — including family, spirituality, and more.
Peachkit is a modern pop/alternative artist who subscribes to the way creating music used to be — when the focus was not on making tabloid headlines, but on the music itself. The largely-anonymous artist, producer, and songwriter recently came to Nashville from the United Kingdom and is already making a splash: her single, “Like It (A Lot),” stood out among a strong field of 140 submissions to win the second edition of Songtank, a Songland-meets-Shark Tank broadcast competition from Helping Our Music Evolve (HOME).
Among her many accolades, Peachkit has multiple number one writing credits to her name. As an artist, she combines her knack for writing chart-topping hooks with raw honesty and social commentary to create her own brand of “Thinking Pop” — and she does it all while rarely, if ever, showing her face.
All told, Peachkit is a brilliant, world-aware creative soul who lets her music do the talking — and certainly, there is plenty of room for her voice! She’s truly in a league of her own, and we’re fortunate to have had the chance to chat in-depth. Check out the full convo below!

Every Monday, our partners at Music on the Move Studios take to their own blog for Music Minute Monday — a chance to share knowledge about proper technique, music business, and even instrument care.
Yesterday, Music on the Move co-founder Caitie Thompson (pictured above, right) — a multi-instrumentalist and instructor in her own right — took to the blog to share tips on how to tune your guitar — and to make sure it stays in tune.
Head over to get Caitie’s dos and don’ts!
Here is the first of a few NashLive! fall lineup announcements coming your way this week!
In any creative endeavor, it is those who build strong communities who are most likely to see their platforms grow over time. Certainly, anybody can pick up an instrument, learn to play, and become adept enough at engineering and/or performing to put their music out into the world in some form. However, without building a strong support system of collaborators, patrons, and professional contacts, it becomes much more difficult to have your work reach and impact larger audiences.
If you’re going to put all of that work in, you might as well share it with other people. To do that, you must think about how your music – and all it encompasses – will help connect you to your audience. You must work to build community.
