Chavis Chance

‘Three Still Listening’


Press Notes:

Chavis Chance is an American singer-songwriter from Plano, Texas currently based in Spain. The son of major-label rock ‘n roller, Dirk Hamilton, Chavis grew up with gigs and tours being the norm and is now bringing the spirit of a by-gone era to the modern pop song.

Fusing a love of folk, rock, and soul with a distinct flavor to lyrical content, the music is at once both old and new. Chance carries the torch of previous generations, moving forward by looking back as he pursues the next iteration of the modern singer-songwriter sound.


‘Up from Here’

[indie folk/indie pop]

Press Notes:

The husband-and-wife writing and singing team of Josh and Nicole Johnson make up the Nashville-based duo Elenowen (named after Josh’s mother and Nicole’s father and pronounced “ellen-owen”). The couple met and fell in love in high school, marrying during Josh’s freshman year at Nashville’s Belmont University. Both pursued separate singing and music careers until 2009, when they joined forces and released their debut album, Pulling Back the Veil, in 2010. Selected to appear as contestants on the first season of the television show The Voice, Josh and Nicole were mentored by country singer Blake Shelton and picked up hordes of fans from their appearances on the show, even though they were eventually cut — by Shelton as judge, no less.

Jackson Capps


[country/indie rock]

Press Notes:

Jackson Capps is a country artist and songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Inspired by the storytelling of country music, the Alabama native traveled back and forth to Nashville from a young age, where he had a chance meeting with Marty Stuart at the age of 12 and was subsequently invited to perform with him on the Opry stage. His excitement turned to calming peace as he performed on that famous stage, reassured in his desire to pursue a music career.

Determined to get his career underway, Capps graduated high school early and relocated to Nashville in 2018 (at 17). He has since been writing consistently and performing at Tootsies Orchid Lounge four-five times a week with his six-piece band (performing over 200 gigs/yr). Capps seeks to consistently hone his skills, learn from multi-talented musicians and writers, and create meaningful and emotive music.

Andrew Wilson Eskesen

‘Night Terrors (Dani)’

[alt americana/retro soul]

Press Notes:

Andrew is known around Alberta and Western Canada for many projects including the blues rock act A Day as Wolves. This solo venture he looks to tell stories and display emotions that all can relate to in some form or another.

Alex Hendrix

‘Blame It on Mercury’


Press Notes:

Alex Hendrix is a singer-songwriter, local culture promoter and writer based in Huntsville, Alabama. As a right-brained creative in a city of Rocket Scientists, she combines folk roots with dark themes to create a unique sound build on gritty emotional honesty and writes candidly of her personal demons and struggles with mental illness.

Tré Burt

‘Dixie Red’


Press Notes:

Tré has been busy – he was on stage with Lucy Dacus and Erin Rae at Newport, performed a moving cover of Prine’s “Paradise” with Tommy Prine, Margo Price and Nathaniel Rateliff, and saw a massive standing ovation for his solo set at the festival, which saw him and Haley Heynderickx doing a couple of songs together. The two of them also crashed one of the afterparty sets cause all the band, who I will not name, was playing was really boring blues-rock and classic rock covers so they took the stage to perform their cover of “These Days” and blew everyone away, as they’re wont to do.

The Pairs

‘High Hopes’


Press Notes:

Family is the chord that ties The Pairs together, and with soaring harmonies they share stories of hope, hilarity, and hardship. Powered by three classically trained vocalists and a former punk rock drummer, they create acoustic harmony pop tunes grounded in unique rhythms that will hug your ear drums and inspire you to dance.




Press Notes:

Dylan Lee Kalogris, better known by his stage name Theselands, is an American Country/Americana singer-songwriter. Kalogris developed the band while based in Los Angeles between 2014-2017 and opted to keep the band’s name for his artist project after he relocated to Nashville in 2017. Theselands has played sold out shows in clubs across the country including the renowned Hotel Café in LA and Listening Room in Nashville.

The name Theselands (these-lands) represents a passion for the outdoors, a spirit of hard work, and a love for blue collar life.

Born and raised by his single mother in Upstate New York, Kalogris learned the value of hard work early on. He credits learning many life lessons from the popular country music of his childhood, which was always playing in the background of his life on the family farm. He regularly gets compared around Nashville to artists like Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, and Zac Brown Band.

Gregg Garvey

‘American Fight (Hold On)’


Press Notes:

Gregg Garvey is a singer and songwriter from Minnesota. Influenced by visionary artists such as Gene Clark, David Sylvian and ‘60s-era Scott Walker, Gregg’s music is a mix of dreamy Baroque pop and vintage rock soul.
