MARTA PALOMBO RELEASES NEW SINGLE “RAINING IN PARIS”

Nashville, TN (March 25, 2022) – Folk-Pop singer/songwriter Marta Palombo recently released her new single “Raining in Paris.” You can listen to the song HERE!

With romantic lyrics like they walk by in their carefully choreographed rosy mood, wonder how many people wish they could be loved by you, “Raining in Paris” paints a beautiful picture for listeners with its descriptive lyricism.

“A few years ago, I spent a whirlwind 48 hours in Paris and packed it with as much of the city as I could possibly drink in during a single weekend,” Marta explains. “It was a lot of walking, a lot of eating, and a lot of wonder soaking in every possible building, corner, and color. The weather was perfectly sunny the whole weekend. On the very last night, as I came back to the hotel, it started to rain — and even though I had seen so many beautiful sights, Paris in the rain absolutely took my breath away. So this is my little ode to Paris, and the way she shines in the rain, written from a hotel window very late at night.”

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 CoCo, True Music Room & Bar, Commodore Grille, Bowery Vault, Two Old Hippies, Boulevard Records, Just Love Coffeeand Belcourt Taps. In addition, Marta has added both the Schermerhorn Symphony and Bridgestone Arena, where she sang back-up for Josh Groban, to her impressive musical resume.

Marta’s leap into the music industry began with 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 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.” After a short break, Marta hit the ground running in 2020 with her new EP, Him Vol. 1. The title track, “Him,” received international acclaim and won the Vox Pop Award at the 18th Independent Music Awards. As the events of 2020 came to a head, Marta spent her newfound isolation writing a breathtaking series of reflective songs titled “The Quarantine Tapes,” which she released in 2021.

Admiring her roots while eschewing the traditional notions of what a singer-songwriter should be is paramount to who Marta Palombo is as an artist. With Marta, there is always new music on the horizon. Her signature style is her ever-growing passion for telling life’s most compelling stories, both big and small.

AMANDA McCARTHY RELEASES NEW SINGLE “DON’T STOP ME”

Nashville, TN (March 16, 2022) – Nashville based singer/songwriter Amanda McCarthy recently released her new single “Don’t Stop Me.” You can listen to the song HERE!

Known for her powerful vocals and lyricism, Amanda has a unique ability to connect emotionally with her fans. With empowering lyrics like packing up my bags and I’m leaving today, I don’t got time for that, and if you don’t like what I say, don’t stop me as I’m walking away, “Don’t Stop Me” is sure to be an energizing anthem to all who listen.

“I wrote Don’t Stop Me with my friend Ty Openshaw prior to moving to Nashville,” Amanda explains. “Funny enough, what we wrote the song about initially revolved around a situation in his life. But, when I moved to Nashville and I started playing this song at rounds, the song grew to mean a lot to me and my complicated relationship with my hometown that I had just left behind. I love my home state of New Hampshire, but growing up in the specific town I’m from, I carried a lot of mixed feelings due to trauma, lack of support in school, and always feeling like my music career was never taken seriously – even as I was seeing success in Boston and NYC. Moving to Nashville was a huge step in my healing and leaving those feelings behind, which is why this song is so special as my Nashville debut, the first song I’m releasing since moving here.”

About Amanda McCarthy:

Amanda McCarthy is a storyteller compelled to speak the truth. Based in Nashville since 2020, with a 10+ year start to her career in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, she is an award-winning songwriter, entertainer and recording artist.

Her current single “Don’t Stop Me” was released on March 16, 2022.

ALEXES HARDT RELEASES NEW SINGLE “JOKE”

Nashville, TN (March 3, 2022) – Nashville based Alternative Pop artist Alexes Hardt recently released her new single “Joke.” Click HERE to listen!

With dire lyrics like frozen to the bone, I’m choking, now I can’t let go, Alexes uses her unique artistry to turn an unfortunate story about emotional abuse into a catchy track.

“I would love for fans to listen to this song and feel empowered,” Alexes explains. “Although its about a toxic relationship, it’s more about coming out of denial and accepting the relationship for what it is. It’s about taking your power back.”

About Alexes Hardt:
Nashville hasn’t heard an artist quite like Alexes Hardt. The twenty-six year old Florida native has written bits and pieces of lyrics ever since she was a child. Drawing influences from the direction of modern hits, her production favors the trap drums that have populated rap music but the electronic sounds that have given posters edge to their latest works. Alexes balances these elements with lighter undertones to create atmospheric indie pop that feels like Banks or Fletcher, but with a bite to it like a Travis Scott record. With this unique take on the production, this allows Alexes to flourish with her vocals; a smooth mezzo-soprano ranges that finds the sweet spot to carry the higher and lower notes in her records. Now based in the epicenter of country music, she offers the south a genre of music often replicated but hardly perfected in the best possible way with authentic storytelling that makes you want to get up and dance one second before wanting to key your ex’s car the next. Alexes Hardt is ready to show the world what she has been holding back for oh so long!

You can connect with Alexes on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.

DANGO ROSE RELEASES NEW EP “THE FORGOTTEN YEARS: VOL. II”

Nashville, TN (December 3, 2021) – Singer/songwriter and co-founder of Elephant Revival, Dango Rose, recently released his new five-song EP The Forgotten Years: Vol II. You can listen to the album HERE!

The Forgotten Years: Vol. II is the second release from Rose’s The Forgotten Years EP Trilogy. This volume highlights a more experimental phase with deeper subject matter, into a style Rose calls “Steam Pop” – a hybrid of Pop, Folk, Roots and subtle electronic motifs. The Forgotten Years: Vol I was previously released in October 2021.

The three-volume release consists of songs that the Elephant Revival bassist wrote and recorded between 2008-2018 whilst in-between tours. Together with his longtime songwriting and production partner, Evan Reeves, co-collaboration in the studio offered a reprieve from his hectic life in a busy touring band. When the band went on indefinite hiatus in 2018, the stillness and loss of identity was unexpected, yet palpable. So began a healing journey where recalling and releasing these recordings became essential in redefining Rose’s sense of place and purpose in the world.

“Songwriting for me has always been a vessel for processing work,” Rose explains. “I believe these songs are somehow an expression of this undertaking, an expression of healing. The Forgotten Years: Vol. II is a departure from anything you’ve heard from me before.”

The Forgotten Years: Volume III is expected to be released in winter 2022.

About Dango Rose:
Dango Rose embraces a passion for music as a vital healing influence and spiritual path. He creates and collaborates to support harmony and truth. Born with a poet’s soul and a warrior’s heart, his life’s journey has been one of transformation.

For seventeen years, Dango traveled nationally and internationally in touring bands. In 2006, he co-founded Elephant Revival and spent eleven years performing and recording with this influential outfit that pioneered the genre, “Transcendental Folk.” Rose penned band favorites such as, When I FallThe PastureJet Lag Blues and others.

Rose has shared the stage with the likes of Gregory Alan Isakov, Noah Gundersen, Watchhouse, Hiss Golden Messenger, The Oh Hellos, Billy Strings, Greensky Bluegrass, Bela Fleck, Sam Bush, Joan Baez, Ani DiFranco, Abigail Washburn, Donovan, Little Feat, Blind Pilot, Amy Helm, Chadwick Stokes, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Leftover Salmon, DeVotchka, John Oates, Elvis Costello, Josh Ritter, Joe Pug, Dirk Powell, Yonder Mountain String Band,  Gone Gone Beyond and many more. He was a three-time headliner at Red Rocks with Elephant Revival and performed several headlining shows with The Colorado Symphony Orchestra. In addition, he’s performed at high profile national festivals, such as Newport Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and more.

Since Elephant Revival went on hiatus in May 2018, Dango has begun a solo career, focusing most of his time in the recording studio and behind the writer’s desk. As music journalist Marc Tonglen explains, “He reminds me of a cross between Leonard CohenCat Stevens and Alan Parsons. His voice is distinctive, words penetrating and his arrangements— on the edge, yet engaging.”

Dango is in the midst of releasing a collection of genre-defying EPs dubbed The Forgotten Years. From this collection, fans will hear takes and storylines that Rose has never before shared. Written while touring with Elephant Revival, yet released well thereafter, The Forgotten Years is a culmination of Dango’s seventeen year journey on the road, inviting us to see elements of his transformation from a different point of view.

SAM VARGA’S NEW SINGLE “FALL DOWN” GOES VIRAL ON TIKTOK

Nashville, TN (September 23, 2021) – Alternative/Rock artist Sam Varga just released his new single “Fall Down” to all streaming platforms. You can listen HERE!

“Fall Down” is the first original single from Sam Varga that displays his shift back to his Rock/Emo roots. It was written by Sam, singer/songwriter/girlfriend Kalie Shorr and William Stone. The song was produced by Dan Swank (All Time Low) in Nashville TN.

With classic Emo lyrics like this happy feels so lonely, I wish someone had told me, that I’d fall down, Sam’s song, sung to the tune of “Ring Around the Rosie,” has quickly become a favorite amongst fans.

“Fall Down” began going viral on TikTok on September 18th and has since received over 900K views on the platform. His previously released cover of Olivia Rodrigo‘s “Good 4 You” currently has over 650K streams on Spotify.

“The first music I found for myself and really identified with was the Emo scene of the early 2000s,” Sam explains. “It was saying something completely different than what was on the radio and a lot more dynamic. That influence is always apparent in my music and I tried to shake a lot of that when I first moved to Nashville because my goal at the time was to get cuts. After a year or two of that I got bored and started releasing my own music. It only took awhile to find my way right back. Fall Down is a song about pushing it too far, putting bandaids on bullet holes, and waking up in the middle of all of it.”

About Sam Varga:
With just three short years in Nashville, Sam has already established himself as serious writer and dynamic performer. Coming up in the fast-paced punk scenes of his high school days and the Blues of Austin TX, there is an edge and energy that makes his songs stand out in Music City. He has quickly come up through the writing ranks and can frequently be seen playing staples in town such as Whiskey Jam, Buscall, and The Listening Room. His first year in Nashville saw the release of his debut single “Sex & Whiskey” and the release of his EP “Light Me Up”.

You can follow Sam on Instagram, FacebookTikTok and Spotify.
