Review: The Deli Presents... Ernie Halter, The Paranormals, Kristen Cothron

After weeks of preparation and keeping invitations in heavy rotation, Ernie Halter, The Paranormals, and Kristen Cothron came together on the 12th & Porter stage to put on a solid rock show under the Deli Nashville banner (figuratively. We did not print a banner.)

Filling the void of initial opener Josh Foster, Kristen Cothron took the stage with only her guitar and gave no hint of being asked to join the lineup just hours before the show. It's difficult to avoid the word "sultry" when defining Kristen's sound-- which is a pleasant change of pace for Nashville's girl-with-a-guitar game. In a scene saturated with sticky-sweet lyrics about girls who can't live without a boyfriend, it's comforting to hear a woman sing lyrics that deal with topics a little edgier than being ignored by her high school crush.

We introduced you to The Paranormals back in August and have yet to take their EP off rotation. The three-piece have built a solid rock show around roughly seven songs that manage to fuse the infectious catchiness of pop music with the sweaty rawness of classic rock. The three members dominate their corners of the stage without overpowering the music or each other, suggesting experience and compatibility that exceed their two years together as a band.

Nashville newcomer Ernie Halter rounded out the show, kicking off his set with one of his newest tunes, "In July." Using his live set to showcase his sheer talent and undeniable affability, he shared with the crowd what it's like to have a song covered by Justin Bieber and his enthusiasm for the overwhelming response to his 52 Songs Club. After having covered Ernie Halter's career for five years and from one coast to the other, I can assure you that Nashville has struck gold with this recent addition to the local music scene.

If you missed the show, then there's no way to soften the blow of telling you that you missed out. But you can catch Kristen Cothron with her band, The Darkside, at Douglas Corner Cafe on November 9th.
The Paranormals will play the Red Rooster on October 26th.

Nashville Newcomer Ernie Halter Plays Whiskey Jam Tonight

Though tonight's jam session isn't Ernie Halter's first time on the Whiskey Jam stage, it's also not likely to be his last. Having recently traded in L.A.'s beach scene for Nashville's bar scene, Halter is making himself at home in Music City, and one of his first stops is on tonight's roster for the weekly Whiskey Jam lineup.

Known well for its special guests, tonight's show will be especially impressive. Ernie Halter and previous Deli Musician Of the Month winner Peter Terry & the City Profits have been confirmed as guests, but yet another surprise guest has been announced, and with the event's track record of last-minute announcements (from Grammy winners to contestants on your favorite primetime singing competition), you'll want to get there early.

The Whiskey Jam takes place at 8 pm at Winner's Bar & Grill. To keep up with the Whiskey Jam, follow them on Twitter. -- Brianne Turner
