In the ever-changing landscape of modern pop, Nathan Angelo shines as a refreshing alternative, embracing the classic elements of popular music and celebrating the backbeat of American tradition. As the revival of music in the 60’s and 70’s brought together the heritage of the Great American songbook, the flair of jazz and heartache of the Delta blues, Angelo integrates these forms into his own music with great ease and delight. Like many Motown and Stax artists, Angelo’s musical craft was cultivated at a young age in the pews and platform of the church. It was there that he first witnessed the power music had to transport people beyond their present experiences.
As a seasoned performer, Angelo has captivated audiences across the country with his tight band and high-spirited live show, selling over 30,000 albums along the way - an impressive feat for an independent artist. Fans of Nathan Angelo recently rallied to fund his latest project on Kickstarter with totals reaching 10K over the projected goal. The new album began with a creative vision rooted in Angelo’s love of classic soul and R&B. His dream was to create an original record that brought listeners back to the infectious, danceable sounds of the era.
Out of the Blue (Sept. 2013) channels the vibe with success, featuring fresh, amusing songs with sounds reminiscent of Marvin Gaye, Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding. In order to capture the energy of the live show, Angelo and his band spent two days in the world-famous Quad Studios in Nashville recording analog onto 2” tape. The project incorporates the signature “call and response” singing style common to Motown as well as the distinct orchestration: horn sections, strings, guitars, snaps, claps, tambourine and the unforgettable keys. To complete the aesthetic, Angelo’s breathtaking falsetto and honest, quirky and charming songwriting reach surprising new heights, satisfying listeners with an all-around experience of nostalgia, energy and emotion. The timeless and unique artistic direction of this record coupled with its phenomenal execution and production allow Out of the Blue to emerge as Angelo’s most exquisite work to date.
Since Emily Lynch's debut release in 2011, she has toured various festivals and venues across the southeast and has been making a name for herself in the Nashville songwriting community.
Though she still takes time to write by herself, she has co-written with some of the world's best songwriters including Brandy Clark, Shane McAnally, Nicolle Galyon, Ryan Hurd, Rob Crosby, Marcus Hummon, and Marc Beeson, among others. Emily has written hundreds of songs and continues to open doors for herself as a respected songwriter.
Most recently, breakthrough country artist, Ricky Gunn, recorded seven of Lynch’s songs, including his debut single ‘King of This Town’. In addition, Athens-based pop artist Emily Hearn released her current single, ‘Volcano’, which she co-wrote with Lynch. ‘Volcano’ was recently featured on the CW’s Jane The Virgin.
In 2014, Canadian country artist, Kira Isabella, recorded Emily’s song ‘Coke Can’ (co-penned with Nicolle Galyon) on her highly praised album Caffeine and Big Dreams. The album was nominated for a 2015 Juno Award for country album of the year.
In December of 2013 Emily was invited to play her original song 'Heart of This City' at the Massachusetts Conference for Women in Boston, Massachusetts. Her tribute to honor the Boston Marathon bombing victims and their families was praised by all 10,000 in attendance.
After many years of focusing on writing songs for other artists, Emily Lynch is currently working on her sophomore album. Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee at esteemed Sound Emporium Studios, Emily is teaming up with producer Ben Cooper and Grammy-winning mixer/engineer Chad Carlson. Musicians credited on the project include Dan Dugmore, Fred Eltringham, Audley Freed and Dennis Crouch, along with all-star featured vocalists, The McCrary Sisters and 20-time Grammy Award winner, Vince Gill.
“I can honestly say that working on this project has been the most fulfilling experience I’ve ever had as an artist,” says Lynch. “I’m more comfortable with who I am as a person and I think that comes through in the music. Every track on this album represents me and what I’m about, and that makes me really proud. Not to mention that it was a dream come true getting to work alongside the best in the business in bringing these songs to life.”
The Georgia native is a 2008 graduate of Clemson University where she received a bachelor's degree in Communication Studies. Although she travels to Nashville almost twelve weeks out of the year for songwriting, Emily and her husband, Matt, are proud to call beautiful Greenville, South Carolina home.
