SAMUEL HERB RELEASES NEW SINGLE “WAFFLE HOUSE”

Nashville, TN (April 24, 2020) – Americana singer/songwriter Samuel Herb recently released his newest single, “Waffle House,” co-written with Bryan Frazier. You can stream the song HERE!

With melancholy lyrics like in the corner booth, there’s a shaky old man, picking up his coffee cup, with lonely hands, “Waffle House” was inspired by a couple whose relationship was ending because of infidelity.

“One night, a show I was watching on Netflix triggered some feelings that I hadn’t felt in months,” Herb explains. “It was a story about a couple’s relationship ending over infidelity. Waffle House is a sad song. Sad songs make me happy because they give me a sense of community – they show me that I am not alone in feeling alone, or that someone else had a similar experience to me.”

“Earlier this year, I thought it would be a cool idea to release a project called “here are my flaws” – a series of songs that I love dearly but I wouldn’t necessarily record because they don’t fit my brand or image. I would record all of them as raw as I could do it, with my phone’s microphone. Well, I’m Samuel Herb, and here are my flaws.”

About Samuel Herb:
Samuel Herb is a singer/songwriter originally from Jacksonville, FL. After placing second in American Songwriter Magazine’s Lyric Contest, Herb decided to make the move to Nashville in 2016, where he quickly fell in love with Americana music. He released his debut single, “Dirty.” which wound-up in the Top 10 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and has since been streamed nearly 40,000 times in over 50 different countries.
In October of 2018, Herb released his second single, “Someone Else’s Dream,” which again debuted in the Top 10 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and quickly grew to a crowd favorite for live shows. It was after writing that song with his producer, Mark Caldwell, that Herb quit his job to pursue music full time.
In Spring of 2019, Herb’s self-titled, debut EP was released featuring six songs, all of which are completely different in story and sound. The EP also made it to #10 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart when it debuted.
Since making the move to artist in 2018, Samuel has shared the stage with Rodney Atkins, Jamie Lin WilsonSon LittlePokey LaFargeAmythyst KiahHush KidsTyler Hilton, Erin RaeShawn James and many more. In such a short time, Herb has played in over 23 states, tallying up hundreds of shows in the past two years. Herb’s love of storytelling brings audiences into his mind, while his “in your face sound” shows off his personality. His love of country music, combined with the sounds of Motown and even Disney music are apparent when listening to his stories.

FRASER WATT RELEASES NEW SINGLE

Nashville, TN (March 27, 2020) – Nashville based Pop singer/songwriter Fraser Wattrecently released his new single “Where Do I Go.” You can listen to the song HERE!

With heart-wrenching lyrics like hear noise but nothing sounds familiar, lost all sense of what I meant to do, so I gotta forget, gonna pick myself up and leave, I didn’t think that I’d ever be losing you, “Where Do I Go” is sure to resonate with anyone who has ever felt homesick.

Where Do I Go comes from a studio recording session set-up,” Fraser explains. “Instead of setting up mics, I sat at a piano and played these three melancholy chords. I had been at college away from home for four months at this point and as I played these three chords over and over again, I started thinking about home and what if nothing was how I left it. As the verses are so intimate lyrically, I knew the chorus had to grow – so, I rounded up some of my closest friends and together formed an epic gospel choir to provide power and emotion to make the choruses huge and unforgettable. I’m unbelievably excited to be putting out my first solo release and hope people get behind it because I’ve got lots more to come!”

About Fraser Watt:
The name Fraser Watt might sound unfamiliar, but since moving to Nashville last year, the Berklee grad has played every small venue in the city, been featured on soundtracks for UK SkySports, entertained Lady Antebellum and Carrie Underwood at Starstruck Studios where he interns, and collaborated with some of the music scene’s hottest new talent.

Growing up in Scotland, Fraser Watt was always inspired by the culture and musical reputation of his home city, Glasgow. He played Tenor and Alto Saxophone from an early age and by his teens, had taught himself guitar and piano. It wasn’t long before he wrote his first set of songs and soon he was making a name for himself on the local gigging scene.

Fraser is a keen sportsman and football player and when it came to career choices – football (following in his dad’s footsteps) or his passion for music, Fraser’s mind was made for him when he was accepted into the world’s most prestigious Contemporary Music School, Berklee in Boston, Massachusetts. Immersed in a variety of genres, Berklee brought about all kinds of projects and collaborations with other fresh talent. Fraser graduated in summer 2019 armed with a degree in Music Production & Engineering, over 100 original songs and a track with friend Gus Dapperton that, to date, has amassed a quarter of a million streams. Upon graduation, Fraser immediately moved to Nashville to take up an internship at the legendary Starstruck Studios, home to Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson.

An innovative and creative musician, writing for himself wasn’t enough to satisfy Fraser so he set about writing and producing for other artists on his move to Nashville last year. Collaborations include: Jeff Cohen, Jenn Bostic, Donna Taggart, Gus Dapperton, Will Irvine (Hunter & The Bear), Ben Earle (The Shires), Dede Kimble and his sister, UK based artist Kerri Watt. His vocals have been heard on soundtracks for UK Sky Sports, BBC’s Wimbledon 2019 footage and UK soap Eastenders. Every week he can be found jamming on the Nashville live scene at venues such as Belcourt Taps and the Opry Mills.

Fraser has been secretly cooking up a unique blend of sounds ready to launch his new solo material. With diverse influences including Lauv, Demi Lovato, Coldplay and fellow Glaswegian Lewis Capaldi, Fraser’s brand new single “Where Do I Go” will have you enamored with a huge hook and silky vocal tones. A charismatic and charming performer with a story to tell, Fraser Watt is a very relevant new artist worth keeping an eye on.

MARTA PALOMBO RELEASES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “FORGET WHAT THEY SEE”

Nashville, TN (March 20, 2020) – Folk-Pop singer/songwriter Marta Palombo recently released the official video for her current single “Forget What They See” from her new EP Him, Vol. 1. You can watch the video HERE!

With romantic lyrics like forget what they see, it’s you and it’s me, fools we may be, but I still believe, “Forget What They See” describes a love story many listeners can relate to.

“The song was inspired by my own experience with people giving me unsolicited advice about my relationship,” Marta explains. “Forget What They See refers to the idea that no one knows your relationship better than you do, so don’t think too hard about what other people think. The colors are soft and muted, with beautiful floral details — all a perfect setup for the ending in my ‘dream’ world, where I can be with who I love free of judgement.”

About Marta Palombo:
If Joni Mitchell and Florence + The Machine had a 21st century hippie daughter, it would be Marta Palombo. Hailing from Florence, Italy, she found her home in Nashville, Tennessee where she spends her time writing, recording, performing, and curating a cabinet full of local teas. Marta effortlessly weaves diverse influences and genres into her own unique blend of off-kilter folk-pop.

Initially honing her wordsmithing and performance skills through poetry, Marta found nationwide recognition as Poetry Out Loud’s 2016 Georgia State Champion and National Runner-Up. After moving to Nashville, she geared her talents towards writing music full- time, releasing a steady stream of covers in English and Italian, as well as original compositions.

Marta has already made quite a name for herself in Music City, garnering a very loyal fan base. She’s played at well-known venues like Café CoCoTrue Music Room & BarCommodore GrilleBowery VaultTwo Old HippiesBoulevard RecordsJust Love Coffee, and Belcourt Taps. In addition, Marta has added both the Schermerhorn Symphony Center and Bridgestone Arena, where she sang back-up for Josh Groban, to her impressive musical resume.

Marta’s biggest hit came from an acoustic cover of LP’s 2015 single, “Lost On You”, soon followed by her debut extended play: 2016’s Revisions. Half personal introspection and half mission statement, the EP evokes imagery of halcyon days with hopes for the best of times to come, and a willingness to revel in the unknown, no matter the consequences. The single “Sparrows” followed in 2017, as well as two new songs in 2018: the soul-baring ballad titled “Bitter End” and the bubbly, optimistic “Gold.”

Admiring her roots while simultaneously eschewing the traditional notions of what a singer/songwriter should be is paramount to who Marta Palombo is as an artist. She has an ever-growing passion for telling life’s stories, big and small, and always has upcoming plans on the horizon. “Him” is Marta’s first release since 2018.

After quickly coming up through the writing ranks, he first turned his attention to his artist career with his debut single “Sex & Whiskey”. His follow up single “Mayday” was met with great acclaim and the promise of his debut EP “Light Me Up.”  Sam’s sound and writing style is self described as “someone like Jackson Browne who grew up listening to a lot of punk.”
