NICK NACE

The Canadian born Nick Nace is a “highly-respected wordsmith among East Nashville’s Americana scene” (-American Songwriter). He lived in NYC for over a decade and was one half of the folk duo A Brief View of the Hudson (Best Folk Duo – NY Press). The pair recorded two albums and composed the soundtrack for Tell Your Friends! The Concert Film! which premiered at SXSW.  

In 2015 he moved to Nashville and has since toured Ireland (Whelans, The Ruby Sessions), was selected to perform at the Mississippi Songwriter Festival, Druid City Songwriter Festival, The Dripping Springs Songwriter Festival, Panama City Songwriter Festival and is a winner of the gulf coast’s biggest songwriting competition The Gulf Coast Songwriter Shootout (judged by Travis Meadows).

Last summer he toured the Southeast with Nashville songwriters Jon Latham & Darrin Bradbury and opened for Texas troubadour Hayes Carll. He will be releasing his debut solo album this summer. 

HEATHER LITTLE

Heather Little was born in north-central Texas, and grew up around Austin and Dallas and all the music that thrives there. She is the co-writer of “Gunpowder and Lead” and “Me and Charlie Talkin’”, both recorded by Miranda Lambert; Sunny Sweeney’s “Helluva Heart”; and “Minefield,” on Travis Meadows’s album Killin’ Uncle Buzzy. And now you can hear more of her songwriting on Lindsey Harding’s album Sound of My Heart (including the title track)!

CHRIS MOYSE

Chris Moyse’s new album, Bad Parts EP, is the culmination of his first few years since moving to Nashville. Poignant and diverse, his characters tell the stories of leaving home to find a new life, finding love and losing it, and the common thread of struggling to grow into oneself. It’s both highly personal and relatable. You often times feel like his lyrics are telling your own story. 

At times raw and stripped down, the Bad Parts EP doesn’t sound like someone trying to make an Americana album. It doesn’t force itself to be anything in order to fit into a specific genre. Moyse combines the sounds of classic singer-songwriters like Neil Young and Steve Earle with modern folk-rock influences of The Wood Brothers and The Avett Brothers. The record is both musically and sonically dynamic, having been engineered and co-produced by Nashville’s eclectic Randall Kent (Matt Hires, POPFILTER). “I really didn’t even intend to make this record,” says Moyse. “I always loved writing and performing. Fortunately I had a handful of people pushing me to get some recordings done after a little while. Once I put a band together and found a producer I went all in and never thought twice about it. I wish I had done it sooner because I’m really proud of it.”
