Papa Jack Couch
Papa Jack Couch performs originals forged over long years of two-lane blacktops and smoke-rise sundowns, with direct influences reaching back to Gram Parsons and Johnny Cash. Emerging from long years of exile with relevance and thump, with a voice of Tupelo honey over burnt sourdough and a rhythm playing style - on a battered ‘59 hockshop Martin - just good enough to forestall eviction, his performances are supported and inspired by the Standard Electric Irregulars. Led by guitarist Micah Cadwell they’re the group assembled to record his album Meriwether, each a successful individual performer in their own right.
In a review of that album Creative Loafing’s Chad Radford describes them as producing a “one-of-a-kind musical atmosphere that borrows tone and pitch from a hodgepodge of styles ... Countrypolitan, Delta folk, and New Orleans blues.” They play with “endearing Southern wisdom ... tales of heartache, smiles, bad luck, and devotion to the Almighty ... a series of portraits of everyone from petty criminals to antagonists with ‘manslaughtering eyes’ and the desperate people who love them.”
A video of his solo Hazel Eyes, produced by the Attic Sounds, was recently released on immersiveatlanta.com, and a video of a second song, Twilight Memories is scheduled soon.

Lexi Street has brightened the Atlanta music scene now for more than a few years, writing bittersweet originals about love, intimacy and just being human. She performs them with a style and grace that can be described as an edgy softness tinged with wry humor and captivating charm. Most of her music has been steeped in Americana, jazz and pop, but she has been turning back lately toward her original influence of electronic music. Her latest release “Panorama”, inspired by some of her favorite artists – Massive Attack, Portishead, Zero 7, the XX, and Rhye, was just published and is available on all the major platforms. Nominated for the JPL Independent Music Awards for Bite The Hand in the Female Singer/Songwriter category, Lexi has also expanded her universe into film music, scoring and providing original songs for an exciting new feature-length project due out in late 2018. She was most recently a winner in Eddie’s Attic renowned Open Mic competition and a participant in their semi-annual shootout.
