Nashville resident Treva Blomquist is boldly forging ahead on a new adventure. After years as an Americana artist, Treva has stepped into the pop realm with her upcoming album, Snakes and Saints, set for release on July 31.
Hear from Treva as she discusses this exciting new direction, as well as why now is the perfect time for artists everywhere to try something new.
On Thursday, June 4, our Quinn Spinn family came together on a special edition of our weekly Facebook Live broadcast, QuaranTimes, to speak from the heart about the events in our world. This is that episode.
To be clear, ours is a platform for people of all races, religions, sexual orientations, ethnicities, and circumstances. We stand with the Black community in this important time in American history.
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.
Hear ‘Tequila Me’ First!
All of you musicians out there are helping us hold up our end of the Keep the Music Playing bargain.
Listen to UMC20
“Electric” Emma Ohm is a supremely talented vocalist, musician, and dancer with bucketloads of energy and soul. Her latest single and music video for “Not Your Savior” puts her style and talent on full display, and her upcoming Shaggy Head EP is sure to bring the fire when it drops.
Today, Emma joins The Quinn Spinn to discuss her projects, with an important focus on the concepts and lessons she has learned on her creative journey.
There a multi-generational appeal to The Silent Boys’ new album, Tilt-A-Whirl, that the alt-rock veterans have accomplished with grace and tact. The record carries a youthful vibe; however, there is a sense that the vibrant good old days are being re-lived through a sepia-toned filter, put in place by age and perspective.
Take the Ride
Bursting onto the scene in 2016, Taylor Grey’s approach to songwriting is a breath of fresh air in today’s contemporary pop landscape. The Northern California native writes from a place of authenticity, and her high-energy performance style has led her to share the stages with a who’s who list of popular acts, including Why Don’t We, The Vamps, New Hope Club, Flo Rida, Fall Out Boy, Walk the Moon, Sabrina Carpenter, Jake Miller, O-Town, and Ryan Cabrera.
This Saturday, May 16 Taylor will join us on Facebook Live for a special edition of the UMC Quarantine Jam.

Even with COVID-19 keeping many of us apart, artists everywhere are still finding ways to put forth creativity and hope.
Watch ‘Home Is You’
Nicole Boggs & The Reel are known for their scintillating and, above all else, authentic brand of Americana-influenced rock and roll. Their music breaks from the status quo by blending contemporary rock sensibilities with gritty nuances of Memphis blues and soul, tied together by Boggs’ powerful voice and brutally honest narratives.
“We realized that trying to go with the status quo has not elevated us to the level we want to be,” Boggs said. “So, you might as well tell the f***ing truth.”
This philosophy is at the heart of the band’s new single, “I’m Gonna Break Your Heart,” from the forthcoming None of Your Business EP due out July 3.
