PREMIERE: Get Away with TopHouse’s New EP, ‘Campfire Stories’

Well folks, as though they hadn’t already done it several times over by now, TopHouse has arrived.

Their new EP, Campfire Stories, is a collection that will make you think, make you feel, and make you want to tap your toes and slap that tambo in the great outdoors with all your chosen family. It’s such an inspiring collection of songs that I needed to know more. So, while they picked their strings, I picked their brains.

UMC20: Picking Up Steam (Jan. 10, 2023)

It seems like everyone is beginning to awaken from their holiday-induced winter slumber. We’ve certainly been busy over here at UMC, and from the looks of it, plenty of musicians in our orbit are, too. For one thing, this week is set to be a big one for releases, and you’ll surely hear some of those in this space this time next week.

But… let’s not get ahead of ourselves, because we have plenty of fire to keep you warm in the meantime. What do you say we get right to it?

P.S.: If you look at the bottom of the track listing, you might see a clue about our first NashLive! show announcement of the year… 😉

UMC20: It’s a New Year, Yes It Is! (Jan. 3, 2023)

Welcome to 2023! We’re glad you’re here.

We’re also glad to see that the independent artists of Earth have been busy, even through the holidays, by sending us loads of new music to greet us upon our return to Nashville. We start 2023 the same way we’ve persisted in prior years; by having no shortage of musical flavors to present to you all.

We’ll be here with a fresh compilation every Tuesday. Here’s the first of many!

UMC50: 50 Memorable Songs from 2022

Folks, it’s finally here. The day has arrived.

Today, we narrow down the entire year to just 50 songs.

And, let me tell ya, it was a tall task. You’ve brought the heat to us consistently, and there were close calls and tough decisions throughout. We also had to factor in variety — we ensured that as many genres and flavors were represented as possible, to showcase the musical kaleidoscope that is the UMC community.

We hope you enjoy what we have for you on this year’s compilation. Check it out!

Let’s go! Listen to UMC50!
