Mack McKenzie

Mack McKenzie makes his Hopkinsville, Kentucky debut at Hopkinsville Brewing Company. September 1st at 6pm. Original Alt-Country, based out of Dayton, Ohio.

Mack McKenzie, a Dayton, Ohio native, is truly one of a kind. Writing from the real life experience of the working class, Alternative-Country and Roots Rock are the cornerstone of Mack's music . Mack McKenzie and his band have made the region take notice of what new country music can be again, versus what is being heard on the radio. A 101st Airborne Combat Veteran, Mack has seen the world, both good and bad and it shines through in his music. Sonically similar to acts such as Waylon Jennings, Son Volt, Sturgill Simpson, Drive-by Truckers and Jason Isbell, Mack's music has depth and meaning you can enjoy and relate to. Having shared the stage with acts such as Shooter Jennings, Hellbound Glory, American Aquarium, this isn't the first rodeo for Mack McKenzie and his band.

Dan Conn

Dan Conn & The Travelin' Kind is a band founded on friendship and a passion for good music. And what started as just an occasional Sunday afternoon jam session has solidified into a authentic americana rock band. Inspired by musicians ranging from Bruce Springsteen, The Band, and Neil Young, Conn says he has always been inspired by "songwriters who write about real life" - which is evident on the bands self titled release. The album which was released in October is full of roots rock songs that reflect simple honest about life, love, and the pursuit there of.

The band is made up of drummer Heath Stone, bassist Adam Humphrey, and guitarist Andy Mullins, as well as Conn himself. Together, they have the momentum of a Steve Earle and The Dukes record with lyrical background of a John Hiatt. Conn writes songs about his life, but they always seem to reach further. For example, "Josie Sings The Blues" might have started with inspiration from his black lab but has become a song about how music connects people through a "high and lonesome sound." Lyrics like "Sing a song about reception or that old time religion... or a song about a train or that ol Kentucky rain... O Josie, won't you sing me the blues" engage the country songs that have come before, but not in a way that feels like a throwback. Conn has a relationship with these old songs and they represent warmth and comfort as they do with so many fans. This is what makes Dan Conn & The Travelin' Kind stand out: they work within the genre and honor what came before, all the while creating new songs for audiences to sing along with.

Lauren Anderson

This soulful, rockin' female, originally from Chicago, has had a passion for singing throughout her entire life. Growing up in a household that was rich in music, her influences were widely varied from artists such as Susan Tedeschi, Bonnie Raitt, The Pointer Sisters, Eva Cassidy, Etta James, Joss Stone, Jason Mraz, Black Eyed Peas, Christina Aguilera, and many more.  

Despite these modern musical influences, Lauren was classically trained throughout most of her early life. She began classical piano lessons at the age of 8, was an active member of several choirs and began taking classical voice lessons when she began high school. She eventually took her love of singing to the Quad Cities and obtained a bachelors degree in music with an emphasis on voice at Augustana College. Initially she planned on becoming an opera singer, but quickly realized that rock and soul music were more her style.

Having listened to those around her, telling her that music and the arts were difficult fields to have a career in, Lauren followed the safe path in life, making sure she had a "back-up" plan while working on her music and performing. This lead her to The University of Kansas to complete her masters degree in music therapy. She worked for several years as a music therapist on a pediatric unit and at a school for at-risk youth in Kansas City. However, even with a steady job she found that passions don’t die easily, and despite her love of working as a music therapist, she was ready to take on the challenge of making music performance her career.

After officially completing her masters in 2012, Lauren began performing solo gigs around the greater Kansas City area and eventually put together a full band. She released her first official EP, “Do & Hope”, in August 2014.  Fittingly, this EP was named after the unofficial motto of Lauren’s mother’s side of the family, who often remarked, “Just do it and hope it turns out okay.”

Lauren released her first, full-length CD titled, "Truly Me" in August 2015. And two singles, recorded in the legendary Ocean Way Nashville Studios, in 2016. Shortly after these releases she finally made the leap into becoming a full-time musician and moved to Nashville in February 2017. 

Since moving to Nashville, Lauren has continued to tour and is currently working on a new release, due out in the summer of 2018.

The Lovers 2.png

Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Amanda June made her way down to Nashville to focus on her career as a singer, songwriter and develop her artistry. Amanda has been singing since she could talk and picked up the acoustic guitar around the age of 14. Influenced by Alison Krauss, Dixie Chicks and Sheryl Crow, she knew Nashville was where she needed to be and at 18 years young she took the leap. Amanda started playing as many shows and writers rounds around town as she made herself a familiar face. "Her music stands out among most contemporary country music in the sense that it's music with passion, soul and written from personal experience. With a down-to-earth sensibility and a smooth, sweet voice, Amanda's style blends perfectly with that of Cole Vosbury, a fellow artist who also heard Nashville calling his name."

You may recognize Cole from Season 5 of NBC's The Voice in 2013. Cole, a Louisiana native, has been staying busy since then, playing shows frequently and collaborating with other artists, such as Amanda June. Cole has been playing music most of his life. He has been perfecting his craft of guitar for 12 years and playing music for a living since age 17. Cole's style stands out among others, his soulful, intriguing and gravelly voice compliments his blues, rock, country influenced playing on guitar. After having success in his hometown playing piano bars and bar gigs with his band, he auditioned for The Voice and while on Blake Shelton's team he placed Top 4. He went on to lay roots in Nashville while he traveled around the country to play shows with the help of William Morris Endeavor. While traveling and co-writing the past few years with Amanda June they decided to work on a duo project. The way Amanda and Cole play together is seamless, each artist's voice complementing the other's wonderfully, with no solo or break feeling forced or unnatural– a feat that few artist collaborations can boast. With a simple, beautiful melody accompanied by calm and elegant acoustic guitar arrangements to playing with a band. They won't be stopping their journey anytime soon and plan to put out a full length album.

Vedra - LIve Music

What sort of sound can you expect from a band conceived in the birthplace of country music, a stone’s throw from the home of rhythm and blues? One that borrows notes from both genres, creating a soulful blend of vigorous beats and shamelessly honest lyrics. Vedra, a four piece ensemble from Nashville, TN, pulls together the impressionist styles of lead-singer/guitarist Branon Jaggers and bassist Bryce Stevens with the classically trained ears of Disney-alum drummer Kirby Newman and pianist Erica Smith. The combination provides a final product rich with emotion and logic, leaving listeners with remnants of heart-throbbing beats and a vague sense of familiarity.

Following radio interviews with Q108 and WJZM, Vedra released their self-titled debut EP in January 2016. Currently, you can find their music on iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, and at their website, VedraMusic.com.
