Future Thieves: Young musicians come to Nashville to chicken-pick and twang. They come to sing about trucks, girls, and girls in trucks. Not so with Future Thieves. They came to rock. You hear it in the first seconds of the first track of their first album. Horizon Line, available now on all major digital media, kicks off with a punchy drum intro. Then the band comes in: a quiet verse with urgent lead vocals, crashing guitar chords and thundering bass licks power into the chorus and then it ends suddenly, leaving listeners exhilarated and hungry for more. That first track, “Rosie,” is just the beginning. Throughout Horizon Line, lead singer/rhythm guitarist Elliot Collett, lead guitarist Austin McCool, bassist Nick Goss, and drummer Gianni Gibson lay down a sound so compelling that you’d think they’ve been hammering it together for a decade on the road. Mo Lowda & The Humble: Known for their progressive songwriting and energetic live performances, Mo Lowda & The Humble's beginnings were in the beer-soaked basements of Philadelphia. Following the release of their first full-length album in 2013, the trio, consisting of Jordan Caiola, Shane Woods, and Nate Matulis began playing venues throughout the city. After experiencing the high of multiple sold-out hometown shows, Mo Lowda took their act on the road and began consistently touring the country. C2 & The Brothers Reed: Hailing from Kentucky with a sound as unique and smooth as the state's beloved bourbon, C2 & The Brothers Reed's authenticity shines - in their music, and on stage. Forming in 2013, the brothers hit the road to spread their sound and haven't looked back. After the independent release of their first EP Hot Mess, along with an extensive tour schedule, they took to the studio less than a year later to cut their newest record Weigh Station Tour. Split into sides, 'Exit A' and 'Exit B', Weigh Station Tour explores gritty rock and roll while referencing 60's and 70's era soul music, embracing a style that is nearly forgotten in the surge of modern sounds and technology.
