[Review] Ten Out of Tenn Celebrates 10 Years | 4.24.15 @ The Ryman Auditorium

Ten Out of Tenn
The Ryman Auditorium; Nashville, TN
April 24, 2015

Review by Beth McAllister

History permeates from The Ryman Auditorium; from the church pew seating to the grand, ornate feeling of the music hall to the simplicity of the world famous stage. Artists have vied for a spot on The Ryman’s legendary stage for decades, and concerts have impacted the course of history in this sacred place.

To be able to witness one such concert was moving and intense. Ten Out of Tenn, the collective of local artists who come together in a show of support for one another’s music, celebrated their ten year anniversary at The Ryman on last night. We were lucky enough to witness the show that had the crowd roaring with cheers at every twist and turn, and we’re hoping that if you weren’t able to be there, we can successfully describe just how powerful it really was.

Seth Wood Gets Retro in New Video for “Losing Streak”

SethWood-620

Local folk-tinged singer-songwriter Seth Wood has premiered a new video for his track “Losing Streak,” which first appeared on his successfully crowdfunded 2013 EP, San Francisco. Shot entirely on VHS, the vid has an decidedly retro vibe, which is only enhanced by the ’70s inspired dress and mannerisms; it sort of looks like a band from the ’70s performing in the ’80s in a video recorded in the ’90s. The song itself, however, benefits from timeless instrumentation and a modern production; we’re really digging it, and we think you will too. Watch below, and pick up a copy of Wood’s EP on iTunes if you like what you hear!
