Nightly Drop Spectacular Debut EP ‘Honest’


Since we covered Nashville-based alt-pop band Nightly’s debut single “XO” earlier this year, the independently released track has exploded with millions of streams. Singer Jonathan Capeci and guitarist Joey Beretta have been hustling, releasing Nightly’s new Honest EP via Interscope Records.

The Honest EP is a spectacular four track bundle of indie pop, wrapped with emotional imagery and irresistible hooks. It’s an exciting evolution for Capeci and Beretta, whose past band Dinner and a Suit grabbed our attention with strong live performances. Nightly are currently on tour with labelmate K.Flay, though no Nashville dates are on the books right now. We’ll keep you updated when that magical Nightly show happens. Until then, listen to Nightly’s Honest below.

Listen to Jeffrey James’ Vocally Rich New Pop/R&B Single “Both Ways”


Nashville’s own Jeffrey James makes waves with his unmistakable voice and penchant for intimate storytelling. We were stoked to premiere his video for “Lay” earlier this year, and now the alt-pop/r&b artist is back with the beautifully tempered pop track “Both Ways.” It’s a refreshingly clear-eyed song that bounces along with cozy piano lines and classy beats.

James sheds light on the track, saying, “Sometimes you can love someone for who they are and still try to change a part of their personality. You might not even know you’re doing it, but it happens as you get closer to somebody. ‘Both Ways’ is about being on the receiving end of that criticism and saying, ‘This is who I am. This is who you were attracted to when we first met. So figure out if you love me for me, or if you want someone else.’ I know I’ve been in this situation many times. And either we work through it, or it ends the relationship.”

Jeffrey James is the latest signee of Nashville-based South x Sea, the label home of KAPTAN, Chancellor Warhol, BIYO, and more. We hear his next EP is set for an early 2017 release, so expect more goodness coming from James soon.

[REMINDER] Don’t Miss Tegan and Sara w/ Torres | TONIGHT @ Cannery Ballroom


Continuing the wonderful pop trajectory started with 2013’s Heartthrob, Canadian indie pop sister duo Tegan and Sara further expanded their renewed sound with this year’s Love You to Death, and have been slowly celebrating its release by making music videos for each and every track. The long running group have been a favorite of ours since their earliest days, but with their newfound mainstream pop dominance, Tegan and Sara are sounding better than ever. The band only seem to make it to Nashville every few years, which makes tonight‘s show, Oct. 24 at Cannery Ballroom, all the more highly-anticipated. Coupled with the fact that one-time Nashvillian Torres is opening up, you’ll definitely want to grab tickets here. Read on for details! Find out more about the lineup→
