Local Pop/Rock Trio The Band CAMINO Turn Up the Guitars on “Daphne Blue”

the-band-camino-620

Guitars are BACK, guys. At least that’s how it feels when listening to The Band CAMINO‘s latest single “Daphne Blue.” The monstrously fun riffs hit you in the face immediately after pressing play, and quickly the shredding is joined by lovelorn lyrics and drums big enough for Bridgestone Arena. The local pop/rock band release the track as they gear up for a mix of headlining dates and shows supporting Ben Rector.

The Band CAMINO originally formed in Memphis back in 2015 by members Jeffery Jordan, Spencer Stewart, and Graham Rowell. Their 2016 EP My Thoughts on You, with standout track “The Black And White,” and 2017 EP Heaven drew comparisons to The 1975 and LANY. That connection draws from shared glassy-smooth pop sounds and intimate, emotionally-charged lyrics. It’s refreshing to see The Band CAMINO standing out in “Daphne Blue” by embracing rock guitars that have been largely missing from the pop landscape in recent years. With their move to Nashville earlier this year, the group are a welcome addition to Nashville’s ever-growing pop scene.

Later this August, The Band CAMINO hit the road with Nashville soul/pop songwriter Josie Dunne before linking up with Ben Rector for a run that includes a stop at The Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 19. Get familiar and listen to “Daphne Blue” below!

Nashville Songwriter H. Kenneth Releases Western, Slow Burn Video for “Now & Then”

HKenneth-620

Nashville based songwriter Kenny Fleetwood has been hustling his way around writing and band projects since moving to town a decade ago. As a fixture of the local pop scene, Fleetwood wrote tracks for site favorites CAPPA, Nightly, Quinn Lewis, Jeffrey James, Daphne Willis, Lukr, and more. With the release of new song and video “Now & Then,” Fleetwood turns all that energy towards his own music with newly minted solo project H. Kenneth.

The video for “Now & Then” is a slow-burn, one-take glimpse into a cowboy’s final moments. Produced by Nashville production company GOLDFOX, the visual takes it time revealing how H. Kenneth landed mortally wounded in a dusty old barn. Did he deserve it? Probably! But that’s up to the viewer to decide. “Now & Then” is H. Kenneth’s first release ahead of debut album This Is A Journal. The track sports high-noon whistling, jaunty guitar lines, and resigned, rich vocals.

Upon moving to Nashville from Central Wyoming back in 2008, Fleetwood formed pop punk band Farewell Fighter. The band earned praise from outlets like Alternative Press and even opened up for Twenty One Pilots before disbanding in 2011. Fleetwood began honing his production and songwriting craft over the next several years, landing placements in T-Mobile, Intel, VW, HBO, McDonald’s, ABC Family, and Samsung spots.

Going forward into the latter half of 2018, Fleetwood plans on more releases as H. Kenneth, along with new music coming from pop band project Arrow Kids. For now, watch the video for “Now & Then” below, and see H. Kenneth live this Friday, Aug. 10 at a special performance and listening party at Analog (RSVP here)!
