Andy Grammer performed at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville on 02/14/12 and put on a fantastic show. It was obvious to see why his songs are so upbeat and fun because after watching him play, you can tell he is doing what he loves. He had the crowd singing with him the whole time and worked the entire room, literally running around the place. He ended with an encore cover of Rhianna's "We Found Love" which you'll have to see for yourself when he comes to your city. It's no surprise that Andy puts on an entertaining show because he got his start by playing for people on the street. He spent three years performing on Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade before anyone gave him a chance, which he talks about in his song "Biggest Man in Los Angeles". Here's a few clips from the show, but check out the Tour Schedule to see when he comes to a city near you!
This past weekend the Cautioners were shooting their music video for the new song "Heart of Love" and invited us along to film a little behind the scenes look at the new band. The band is made up of four talented music men with Justin Ebach on the vocals, Alex Edwards and guitar, Jon Soderholm on bass, and Aaron Lagrone on drums. Freelancers Kirk Slawek and Matt Shaw were the directors of the music video that is going to look amazing thanks to the awesome set they designed. The Cautioners release their first EP next Tuesday, November 1, and are giving it away for free so be sure to check back next Tuesday as we will have a link posted so you can download their new EP!
Needtobreathe had a secret show in Nashville on September 18th, two days before the release of their album The Reckoning. Here's a short clip of them performing an acoustic version of their song "A Place Only You Can Go." The show was amazing and this was the encore song they performed that was the perfect ending. Thanks to my buddy Mark for the video and for getting me into the show!
Back in the early part of the year, Mumford and Sons played a secret show along with The Apache Relay in a basement in Nashville, TN. The basement of the house was cold, a little bit damp, and with a ceiling no higher than 7 feet tall with wires and pipes hanging down throughout. The room was as packed as it could possibly be with about 100 people shoulder to shoulder. Many people in the back were only able to listen because they didn't have a clear view due to the confined space it was in. But no matter where you were standing or sitting, the show was one that you could never forget. Thanks to my boy Kern Dog for letting me use the video.
