Ron Pope: Daylight Acoustic Tour with Opener Emily Scott Robinson
Sat, Jan 19 8:00 pm
Ron Pope: In the ever-evolving landscape of today’s music industry, Nashville-based independent artist Ron Pope has plotted his own course. Uncompromising and relentless, Pope has evolved into one of the top grossing independent acts in the business while garnering a legion of devoted fans the world over. Taking the industry-road-less-traveled and holding fiercely to his independence has proven fruitful for Pope; to date, he has sold out shows on three continents and in more than 20 countries, sold over 2 million digital tracks, had over 200 million streams on Spotify, 630 million plays on Pandora, 150 million views on Youtube, and has more generally crushed every metric used to measure what is possible for independent artists. This year marks the 10 year anniversary of his first solo album, “Daylight,” which features fan-favorites such as “A Drop in the Ocean” “You’re The Reason I Come Home” and more. To celebrate, he is releasing the album for the first time ever on vinyl and is going on an 11 city acoustic tour. Emily Scott Robinson: With her forthcoming album Traveling Mercies, Emily Scott Robinson offers a complex, thoughtful portrait of a real itinerant artist, one who carries the lessons of her past as she searches for a hopeful future. She and her husband live full time in a motorhome and spend long stretches on the road, turning chance encounters with strangers into stirring folk meditations on the human condition. Though this is Robinson's first proper studio release (having already released a full-length album, Magnolia Queen, and a live EP), it's by no means her first introduction to the songwriting community.
