UMC20: Reaping the Musical Harvest (Oct. 4, 2022)

This week’s UMC20 is packed with gorgeous soundscapes, heartfelt stories, and even a few bangers sprinkled in.

We’ve had a couple weeks to re-load our stockpile of fresh jams, and we’re reaping the musical harvest here today. Have a seat at our table and dig in!

NashLive! Takeover: A Special Writers Round at The Listening Room

NashLive! will be taking over Nashville’s iconic The Listening Room Cafe on Monday, October 3 with a special writers round event — featuring songwriters from here in Nashville… and beyond!

TICKETS

Billy Bauer is a Bethlehem, PA-based songwriter and the frontman of Billy Bauer Band, an acoustic rock quartet who has opened for the likes of Tim Reynolds, Phillip Phillips, Third Eye Blind, and many more, and whose popular Dave Matthews Band tribute show sells out venues across eastern Pennsylvania. Billy will bring his Martin Guitar all the way to Nashville to perform selections from the band’s catalog, which dates all the way back to 2006’s full-length debut, Another Day is Coming.

Erin McLendon is a country artist, entrepreneur, and co-founder of Music on the Move Studios, a community organization which provides educational and performance opportunities to Nashville’s robust community of female musicians and entrepreneurs. Erin is gearing up to release a new album later this summer, with the first two singles — “Millie” and “Sunday Crowd” — available for streaming everywhere!

Speaking of powerhouse female musicians-slash-entrepreneurs, J.Antonette certainly fits the description. Not only is the New York native a force to be reckoned with on the pop country circuit — her latest single, “Heartbroken in a Honky Tonk,” is out now — but she is the founder of Native Manor, a boutique entertainment company based in Nashville and New York City, and Bundle Up Nash, a charitable organization known for its holiday clothing and toy drives.

Growing up in a self-described “wacky, doomsday Bible cult,” Wesley David sought refuge through music. His passion has served him well — for many years, Wes has toured the country performing his whimsical, tongue-in-cheek blend of pop and rock for live audiences of all shapes and sizes. This October, he’ll join us as he hits the road in advance of his 6-song EP, Satori, due out later this year.

UMC20: The Best of September 2022

Do you feel that chill in the air? Better put on some FIRE to keep us warm.

This month was full of fire, and we’re here to let it burn. These 20 tracks are a glorious snapshot of what September had to offer, weaving through genres and moods to create one true eclectic, yet unified masterpiece.

Let’s not delay. Get to it!

Hear the Best of September

UMC20: Farewell, Summer (Sept. 20, 2022)

We’ve tried to hang on to the summer of 2022 for as long as possible. And, if you’re in Nashville this week, it certainly seems like Mother Nature is thinking along the same lines.

But… it’s over. We’re officially heading into fall this week, but not before a last hurrah of high-powered summer bops. The first half of UMC20 is loaded with those, before gradually giving way to more mellow sounds befitting the cooler months.

OK… there are some Americana-tinged scorchers at the end, too. We couldn’t help ourselves!

LISTEN: Foo Fighter Chris Shiflett Gets Nostalgic on ‘Born & Raised’

You may know Chris Shiflett for his work as the lead guitarist of modern rock legends and first-ballot Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, Foo Fighters.

What you should also know is that Shiflett is building an impressive solo catalog of his own. He just added to it on Friday with his latest single, “Born & Raised.”

LISTEN: Erin McLendon’s Self-Titled EP Proves to be Worth the Wait

The journey to Erin McLendon‘s self-titled EP — the follow-up to 2017’s full length debut, Making It Up As We Go — began in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We got our first taste last February, with the release of the raucous, unconventional love song, “Shakin’ In My Boots.” From there, we were treated earlier this year to a “Cell Block Tango” inspired tale of infidelity (“Millie”), followed by a cheeky nod to the holier-than-thou, titled “Sunday Crowd.”

The new record dropped in its entirety on Friday. Alongside the aforementioned moments, there are more memorable cuts that are sure to stir your emotions and have you nodding along.
