Americanafest 2019: A Night on Cannery Row

Thursday night was a hot one in Music City, as Americanafest continued all over town.

For us, that meant hanging out at 1 Cannery Row, whose venues — Cannery Ballroom, Mercy Lounge, The High Watt, and One — featured enough diverse musical offerings and electricity in the air to feel like its own festival within the larger scope of the city’s week-long celebration.

WATCH: Katie Cole’s Raw, Honest ‘Graceland’ Video

Late last year, Americana artist Katie Cole released her EP, Things That Break Pt. 1. We chatted with her about the EP, as well as her experience coming to the U.S. and working with some of the industry’s biggest names over the years.

REVIEW: Tom Pino’s ‘Brooklyn’ a Snapshot of his Cross-Country Transformation

Tom Pino is a storyteller. So, when the New York native headed west for a new life in Los Angeles, the events that led him there surely provided more than enough inspiration.

That inspiration has been packaged up in Brooklyn, a five-track EP rooted in pop rock sensibility and colored in with shades of blues, roots, and Americana.

The Quinn’s Daily Spinn: Tuesday, June 18

Earlier this year, we here at UMC had a chance to sit down with MICVH for an enlightening conversation about, among many other things, her debut EP, Singularity. During that conversation, she told us that the EP is a representation of “all the things that exist within me.”
