NashLive! Presents: Chloe Hogan, Alyssa Lazar, and Ali Henderson

We’ll be back at The East Room on Thursday, November 11 with another fresh lineup of Nashville-based female pop artists Chloé Hogan, Alyssa Lazar, and Ali Henderson.

Chloé Hogan takes pieces of every artist she’s ever heard, to inspire her storytelling and songwriting. Her music includes an array of old Motown soul harmonies and live-sounding instrumentals. Though most of what Chloé writes seems to be accented by its bright and groovy nature, the lyrics and overall feeling behind the music are much more somber. The “timeless” conversation of love — and the more evident loss — is the focal point of each work. The incredible dichotomy of her uplifting grooves, partnered with her melancholy lyrical composition, is perhaps the most unique component of Chloé Hogan’s music.

Fueled by the sound and passion of classic rock and roll music, Alyssa Lazar brings a 1970’s nostalgia to today’s pop/rock music. Lazar grew up in Scranton, PA, constantly surrounded by music, and began singing at the age of three. Her transition from singer to musical artist began when she learned to play the piano at the age of eight. Following this, she began to write songs, compose, and accompany herself for shows and performances at every venue throughout her hometown weekly by the age of fifteen. After high school, Alyssa moved to Nashville, TN to continue pursuing her music career. Her love for piano mixed with her love for classic rock brought Alyssa’s music to a sound reminiscent of artists such as Elton John, Lady Gaga, Billy Joel, and Queen. Lazar unapologetically brings out her fiery spirit and dauntless attitude within her theatrical, rock and roll inspired sound.

South Carolina native-turned-Nashville resident Ali Henderson was born to be something special. While southern culture is often synonymous with sweet tea, warm nights, and Country music, it’s always refreshing for an Alt-pop artist like Henderson to emerge from quaint towns like Gaffney, South Carolina. In 2015, Henderson earned a one-way ticket to Hollywood thanks to American Idol, impressing the likes of Keith Urban, Harry Connick Jr. and Jennifer Lopez. After the show she moved to Nashville, where she completed a degree in Songwriting. Gutsy lyrics, fresh yet familiar instrumentation, and killer vocals are Henderson’s M.O.

NashLive! Presents: Sarah Manzo, Dakota Ryley, and Julia Kahn

Sarah Manzo. A girl with stories to tell, a longing to connect and light to share. This Taurus hails from New Jersey but possesses an authentic New York sound. After an intense year of personal growth, spiritually and musically, she now resides in Nashville TN, where she is performing and recording her debut EP! Her music is compatible with fans of Alicia Keys, Ariana Grande, Amy Winehouse, Ella Fitzgerald, and Lianne LaHavas. 

Born just outside of New York City, Dakota Ryley naturally picked up on the city’s R&B nuances, contributing to her unique style of pop. The warm tone and effortless runs that her voice naturally carries reflect that culture. Blunt honesty, spun through raw and real lyrics, defines her ever-growing repertoire. Dakota effortlessly blends contemporary pop sounds with old Motown musical motifs for easy listening. After a full year of five single releases, Dakota is set to drop her debut EP this fall. She started off the summer by releasing the project’s first single, titled “Good For You,” which landed her writeups in Rolling Stone India, Earmilk, Vents Magazine, and several other notable music outlets.

Indianapolis native Julia Kahn captivates listeners with her authenticity and soul-moving voice, blending indie-electronic production underneath a deep chill wave, R&B, indie-pop vibe. She carries a vibrant artistic vision that is connective and magnetic through her soulful lyrics and storytelling, dealing out heartfelt grooves that reach out to your soul.
