I’m back! I took last week to disconnect and camp across the Midwest (largely away from people, as is customary in 2020).
With that, let’s get into a Daily Spinn that veers briefly away from the “indie” world, and features one of my personal favorite acts.

If you’re just learning about Emily Hackett, let’s quickly bring you up to speed. The Americana singer-songwriter has enjoyed plenty of success over the past couple of years, with her EPs By The Sun (2018) and By The Moon (2019) earning her a spot as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country in 2019.

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’
As we predicted last week, the sheer volume of new, very good music April had in store for us made compiling this list quite an undertaking.
It doesn’t promise to get any easier in May, either, considering all of the music that has already been released, after the April UMC20 cutoff.
It has been a strange couple weeks, for certain.
Through it all, we have music.

Don’t let the bubbly tone of the opening guitar progression fool you: Kaitlin Petty‘s new single is anything but a love song.

Trevor Larkin is perhaps best known for his work as the guitarist for soul singer-songwriter Allen Stone.
What you should also know is that Larkin fronts his own rock band here in Nashville. That band is Climb The Sky, and its music plays great homage to the stalwarts of melodic rock and roll, while exploring the range of emotions we experience in our shared human experience.
