Meet the Lineup: NashLive! Takeover at The Listening Room
As announced just a few days ago, NashLive! will be taking over Nashville’s iconic The Listening Room Cafe on Monday, October 3 with a special writers round event, featuring songwriters from here in Nashville — and beyond.
We couldn’t wait any longer. Let’s introduce you to the four songwriters who will join us in front of The Listening Room’s brick wall backdrop!
Billy Bauer is a Bethlehem, PA-based songwriter and the frontman of Billy Bauer Band, an acoustic rock quartet who has opened for the likes of Tim Reynolds, Phillip Phillips, Third Eye Blind, and many more, and whose popular Dave Matthews Band tribute show sells out venues across eastern Pennsylvania. Billy will bring his Martin Guitar all the way to Nashville to perform selections from the band’s catalog, which dates all the way back to 2006’s full-length debut, Another Day is Coming.
Erin McLendon is a country artist, entrepreneur, and co-founder of Music on the Move Studios, a community organization which provides educational and performance opportunities to Nashville’s robust community of female musicians and entrepreneurs. Erin is gearing up to release a new album later this summer, with the first two singles — “Millie” and “Sunday Crowd” — available for streaming everywhere!
Speaking of powerhouse female musicians-slash-entrepreneurs, J.Antonette certainly fits the description. Not only is the New York native a force to be reckoned with on the pop country circuit — her latest single, “Heartbroken in a Honky Tonk,” is out now — but she is the founder of Native Manor, a boutique entertainment company based in Nashville and New York City, and Bundle Up Nash, a charitable organization known for its holiday clothing and toy drives.
Growing up in a self-described “wacky, doomsday Bible cult,” Wesley David sought refuge through music. His passion has served him well — for many years, Wes has toured the country performing his whimsical, tongue-in-cheek blend of pop and rock for live audiences of all shapes and sizes. This October, he’ll join us as he hits the road in advance of his 6-song EP, Satori, due out later this year.
Tickets for this first-of-its-kind NashLive! Takeover will be $10. Stay tuned here for information on how to get yours when they go on sale!
