Crowdfunding Spotlight: With ‘Tarantula,’ Misty Dawn is Weaving an Empowering Story

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.

The Tisburys Release Their First Full-Length Album, ‘Sun Goes Down’, In Time for Fall

Fittingly titled for a fall release, Sun Goes Down by The Tisburys feels like a collection of music from nostalgic eras, spanning from the 1960s to the 80s, and united together on one reflective album. Vibing off the sounds of John Mellencamp, Vanity Fair, Tom Petty, and Wilco, this album feels like an old favorite the first time through.
