So, taking that understanding into our first listen of Elisabeth’s new EP, Other Side of Sober, we can certainly say we got what we came here for!

It’s been a pleasure to become acquainted with the mission and people behind Sad Girl Music throughout our first full year in Nashville. Likewise, we’ve enjoyed seeing their monthly Sad Girl Night showcases grow at Helping Our Music Evolve.
On Sunday night, we got to experience that growth one more time to close out 2019, and were treated to an evening full of stellar musicianship, authentic storytelling, and captivating vocals.
