Blues Rockers Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones storm in

Blues rocker Hannah Wicklund and her group The Steppin Stones are locked and loaded to burst onto the Nashville indie rock scene with their self-titled LP due out today, January 26! Wicklund is a guitar-wielding burst of fire taking cues from '60s and '70s rockers from Hendrix to Petty. Lead single "Bomb Through the Breeze" was released late last year, and leads off the album-- an album which is sure to be one of the most exciting releases to come out of Nashville in 2018! Check out "Bomb Through the Breeze" below! - Chris Thiessen

Ron Pope returns with "Worktapes" EP this Friday!

Just last year, Ron Pope released his seventh studio album Work to much acclaim, even being named one of "10 New Country Artists You Need To Know" by Rolling Stone Country. Obviously, seven albums in, "new" is a relative term. But the work Pop has put in over the past decade shows time and again. Now this Friday, Pope is releasing a 7-track companion EP titled Worktapes. Lead single "Twin Falls Idaho" shows off Pope's picturesque storytelling and breathy Americana vocal performance over a stripped back piano-led track. Check out the single below and look out for Worktapes this Friday! - Chris Thiessen


Singer-songwriter C. Stewart McKee tries to "Move On" with new single

Nashville's (via Baton Rouge) C. Stewart McKee is beginning 2018 by trying to "Move On" with his newest self-released single. "I know it's far too late to negotiate," McKee sings on the Americana-tinged track with just a little touch of early Ed Sheeran. The beautifully shot video featured below displays vast mountain landscapes and rocky terrain, mirroring the uncertainty of the future but the determination to move. Check out the video below! - Chris Thiessen

Third Man's Brendan Benson is "Half a Boy (and Half a Man)"

While Jack White is getting to release his next major album, other former Raconteur Brendan Benson is releasing a slice of identity-seeking alt rock with "Half a Boy (and Half a Man)". Though Benson has been around for more than two decades, this is his first solo single on White's Third Man Records. The recent signee is sure to be in the works for more material in 2018, we'll just have to wait and see! In the meantime, listen to the new single below!


William Matheny brings his brand of Americana to The Basement (1/24)

Nashville's William Matheny released his debut Strange Constellations in February of last year to critical acclaim. His songwriting is strong, and his style comes across like an indie rocker gone americana, bridging the gap between Ben Folds, The Avett Brothers, and Ryan Adams. Now hard at work on the road, Matheny will be gracing The Basement stage Wednesday, January 24th alongside J.P. Harris, The Country Westerns, and Richie. The show begins at 9:00 PM, and tickets are $6 in advance, $8 at the door. If you haven't made it to a show yet in 2018 (or if you have), this is one you don't want to miss. Check out Matheny's track "Living Half To Death" below!
