Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Colin Dieden had all but forgotten his childhood nickname “Little Hurt” until one night, when he felt a strong pull to fulfill the name once again. Not on the baseball field, like he did growing up in Kansas City, but in the studio and on stage as the moniker for his solo project, Little Hurt.
“It’s part of my past, so it felt right for the future. I’m just a kid from Kansas who’s a little hurt,” Dieden says.

Known as the “purple haired rock goddess,” audio-visual artist Anastasia Elliot is enigmatic to say the least.

Today is a very special day: it’s 8 1/2 years to the date of the very day The Quinn Spinn was conceived.
Through the years, we’ve had the chance to appreciate art — and especially, music — in all of its forms. All the while, we’ve tinkered with our own art form (this show), as we’ve experimented with different ways to communicate our truth.
In the process, we’ve learned that true art cannot be put into a box.
The artist featured within our first-ever UMC Crowdfunding Spotlight is weaving a thoughtful and intricate web…
Misty Dawn is a singer-songwriter and entrepreneur with an extensive background in musical theatre and television. After spending a decade in New York City, The Texas native came to Nashville and developed a sound and style she calls “Show Country.” Misty draws influence from her vast and varied performing arts experience, while finding musical inspiration from jazz, showtunes, oldies, church hymns and — of course — classic country artists like Reba McEntire, Shania Twain, Kitty Wells, and Patsy Cline.
Misty has launched a crowdfunding campaign through February 14 (that’s Valentine’s Day!) for her upcoming project, Tarantula, an 8-song concept album tentatively set for release this fall. Tarantula will honor all of Misty’s influences — with a dash of soul and swing — as it walks the thematic tightrope between societal expectations and a woman’s pursuit of her dreams.
