Here’s Our Underground Writers Round: HOME for the Holidays Lineup!

It was just last week that we announced that our December 2019 Underground Writers Round will be a charitable affair, benefiting and recognizing the efforts of our dear community partners at Helping Our Music Evolve (H.O.M.E.) in Nashville.

What we didn’t tell you is who will be a part of the all-Homie lineup we have in store for you beginning at 9 p.m. on Friday, December 13. Now, your wait is over!

Presenting the 2019 UMC50 Playlist!

More than any other playlist we’ve ever constructed, constructing the first-ever UMC50 playlist was not easy.

We’ve heard from hundreds of artists this year, and have heard multiple songs from the vast majority of them. Some have put out full EPs or albums. So, where do we even begin narrowing down this entire calendar year, to 50 of its can’t-miss songs?

When Derek Webb released Stockholm Syndrome in 2009, it was equally experimental and controversial. The album’s urban electronica landscape was a noted departure from Webb’s singer-songwriter roots, while the record found itself under record label censorship due to its unabashed critiques on political and spiritual matters.

On Friday night, Webb celebrated 10 years of his landmark album at The Basement in Nashville, trading in the album’s multi-layered soundscapes for an evening of acoustic interpretations.

When we curate an Underground Writers Round, one focus we have is on the diversity of the lineup. If we do it right, each participant will bring something different to the table, in an effort to showcase the wide world of music that exists right in front of us.

So, if we can toot our own horns for a second… we hit the mark with this one. Friday night’s lineup certainly had a little something for everyone who packed into Nashville’s historic Douglas Corner Cafe.

When you’ve traveled the world and toured as much as Rising Appalachia, that influence is bound to reflect in the art you create. We mean that in a musical sense, as well as in the certain enlightened sense of togetherness — the feeling that we are all one — that they inspire in their live performances.
