Songs You Should Hear… from Sunday’s NashLive! Lineup

We have a solid NashLive! show to look forward to this Sunday at The East Room, and we thought we’d use this week’s Songs You Should Hear to celebrate it.

Supersonic folk troubadour (and longtime friend of UMC) Ali Aslam is coming down from Brooklyn to join Nashville locals Mary Jennings and Pepperwood, and we’re pretty psyched about it. So psyched, that we’ve given you a preview of what’s to come this weekend. Enjoy!

Songs You Should Hear: Find Yourself Again; Heartbreak and Hope

We’ve got some fresh, eclectic sounds to comprise this week’s edition of Songs You Should Hear.

Everything here has elements of pop. However, each song is by no means formulaic. Each one expands upon the boundaries of what pop music can be, blending styles making for exciting listens the whole way through.

UMC20: Bringing the Heat (May 10, 2022)

You had to know there’d be a weather pun, with summer making its first appearance of 2022 in Tennessee this week.

It’s also accurate, because (as always), we have your flavor of total fire on this week’s UMC20. Things get off to a hot start and keep burning — from hip hop, to metal, to folk, and all stops in between.

You know what time it is. Let’s go!

NEW SHOW ALERT: Pepperwood, Ali Aslam, and Mary Jennings at The East Room June 19

UMC20: Upcoming Performances, International Jams (April 12, 2022)

It’s a busy week around these parts. NashLive! has a couple shows — both in-person and virtual — and that’s always exciting. It also gives us plenty of tunes for UMC20.

That’s just part of the story, of course. We have artists spanning the globe featured this week, from as far away as New Zealand, as well as plenty right here at home. The genre spectrum is pretty well covered. All in all, this volume of UMC20 is surely memorable, and bound to have something you’ll want to replay over and over again.

Let’s get to it, then? Cool!

Songs You Should Hear: Self-Love, Relationships, and Sellin’ Out

Jenna’s taking the reigns on this week’s Songs You Should Hear once again, and it’s another exciting volume full of bops.

As the headline suggests, there’s plenty of love to go around here (whether from another, or from oneself). There’s also a lament snuck in about the lack of community… but at least we’re able to muse over it while having fun!

UMC20: Catching Up! (Mar. 22, 2022)

Things got a little busy around these parts last week, which is why we weren’t quite able to get you a fresh, hot batch of fire back on the 15th.

With that said, we think what we have for you on this week’s all-new UMC20 is worth the wait! We start off by rocking your world, before things get a bit more tender in the middle. Then, we have some pop anthems on tap before things get suuuuper experimental toward the end.

Ready to dive in? Same here. Let’s go!
