UMC20: June 3, 2020

Our goal with this week’s UMC20 playlist — and really, any UMC20 playlist — is to present music from artists of all genres and perspectives. The common thread is that we, as human beings, are all unified in our creative passions, storytelling abilities, and collective drive to have a lasting, positive impact on the world around us.

In these turbulent times, we feel it is important to continue providing that platform. Beyond that, we are committed to finding ways to help create a stronger society; one that respects and celebrates the differences of its members. We welcome your input on how we can use our platform to achieve that goal, now and in the future.

We love you, and we look forward to those conversations. For now, we offer you this week’s playlist.

LISTEN: ‘Going to the Movies’ Reveals the True Mark Fredson

Over the course of his career, and through numerous projects, Mark Fredson has garnered well-deserved attention, both for his fearless showmanship, as well as a knack for writing larger-than-life hooks. Fredson gained notoriety — in Nashville, and across the United States — for his time as the frontman of The Lonely H, and helped Margo Price craft her breakout song “Hurtin’ (On the Bottle).”

The sum of those experiences has culminated in Going to the Movies, Fredson’s new, 9-track volume of “classic bedroom pop” that, in the artist’s own words, is his most authentic work to date.

Going to the Movies sounds very 2019, but it can also take you back to an earlier time,” Fredson said. “It bridges a solid gap between two worlds. I wanted to sound new while still mining the past, and this is my true self on the record. Regardless of the different iterations of music I’ve played in the past, there’s nothing in the world that’s more representative of me as a person than what you hear here.”

If that’s the case, then we love Mark Fredson here at UMC!

PREMIERE: Elle Mears’ Musical Journey Reaches New Heights with ‘Tequila Me’

At every turn, Elle Mears has lived a life surrounded by music. The Nashville-based singer-songwriter is the daughter of pianists – she describes her mother as a “brilliant” classical pianist, while her father’s exploration of the 80s synth movement led her to appreciate a broad range of styles.

Not to mention, she found a world-class musical mentor in her uncle, legendary bluegrass mandolin player Jimmy Gaudreau.
