UMC20: All the Feels (Nov. 16ish, 2021)

We were a day late with this one! That is indeed what happens when you have two shows and a whole lot of other fun stuff happening this week. Better late than never, right?

Nonetheless, we’re confident that this week’s UMC20 is worth the wait. We’re also confident that it will get you feeling something. There are a lot of heavier, more introspective songs here, befitting a time of year when it gets dark at 2 p.m. or something. ‘Tis the season, we suppose?

Of course, there’s plenty of fun, too. It’s all ready for you below!

UMC20: New Tunes and Looking Ahead (Oct. 19, 2021)

Last week was the best kind of whirlwind around here! We got to enjoy a couple of great NashLive! shows, and we picked up some steam featuring more of your music, more frequently. We even had time for some Fun -N- Games.

Seriously, go watch that episode. What a great and meaningful conversation!

With all of that going on, we’re still catching up to make sure the glorious future is just as good as the recent past. That’s why we’re a tiiiiny bit late getting this week’s UMC20 in your hands.

Nonetheless, we think it’s worth the minor wait. You’ll find plenty of that new goodness on here, as well as some tunes that hint toward the shows to come (including this MONSTER taking place at Mercy Lounge next week). There’s rock, Americana, dark pop, and way more. We dare you to dig in!

LISTEN: On ‘Roman Holiday,’ Skylar Lee Captures the Spirit of Romance

Skylar Lee is one of the more intriguing artists we’ve had the chance to feature over the past couple of years. Since bursting onto our radar with her 2020 single, “Marionette,” the Nashville-based producer and songwriter is an inspiration for women everywhere, releasing pop music that is fresh and exciting in a historically male-dominated profession.
