After arriving Nashville in 2017 from her native Orlando (she’s since moved on to Los Angeles), indie pop singer Gatlin has experienced not only a period of personal growth and change in her life and worldview, but also one in her music, settling on a sort of Maggie Rogers-esque folk pop on her excellent 2020 debut EP, Sugercoated, only to experiment with a more lush, ethereal, and electro-infused pop sound with 2021’s To Remind Me of Home, a style with she doubles down on and perfects with her latest and best project to date, the recently released EP I Sleep Fine Now. We’ve been fans of all of her music over the last few years, but with her recent work, Gatlin sounds like an artist truly finding her stride, both in her stylistic approach and also in her story-driven lyricism, giving way to vulnerability, examining grief over a past relationship, and exuding confidence and self-actualization in how she presents his feelings and themes, all which translate to a captivating live show.
Currently in the midst of her first-ever headlining tour in support of her fantastic new record, the buzzy up and comer returns to Music City Oct. 23 to headline Exit/In, along with fellow LA-based indie pop singer BEL, a must-see lineup for any fan of fresh, modern, emotionally rich pop music. You can still get tickets right here while they last, but we’re excited to announce that we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to a couple of lucky fans! Preview both performers and enter below.
Gatlin and BEL will perform Monday, Oct. 23 at Exit/In. The show is all ages, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $25.60.
