Solo artist. Frontman. Behind-the-scenes songwriter. For more than a decade, Adam Hood has left his mark both onstage and in the writing room, carving out a southern sound that mixes equal parts country, soul and American roots music.It's a sound that began shape in Opelika, Alabama. Raised by working-class parents, Hood started playing hometown shows as a 16 year-old, landing a weekly residency at a local restaurant. He'd perform there every Friday and Saturday night, filling his set list with songs by John Hiatt, Hank Williams Jr, and Vince Gill. As the years progressed, the gigs continued —not only in his home state, but across the entire country. Eventually even landing himself a three-year nationwide tour opening for Leon Russell.These days, though, Hood is no longer just putting his own stamp on the songs of chart-topping country stars. Instead, many of those acts --including Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Anderson East, Josh Abbott Band, Lee Ann Womack & Brent Cobb --areplaying his songs. In 2016, Hood signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Nashville and GRAMMY Award-winning producer Dave Cobb’s Low Country Sound. All while remaining adamantly focused on his own career, playing around 100 shows annually promoting third solo release, Welcome to the Big World, and now his newest release, Somewhere in Between.A showcase for both his frontman abilities and songwriting chops, Somewhere in Between shines a light on Hood's strength as a live performer. He recorded most of the album live at Nashville's Sound Emporium Studios over two quick days. Teaming up with friend and producer Oran Thornton (Miranda Lambert's Revolution, Angaleena Presley's Wrangled) their goal was to create something that reflected the raw, real sound of his concerts, where overdubs and unlimited takes are never an option. The result is a record that reflects Hood's working-class roots, mixing the upbeat thrill of his roadhouse roots-rock songs with the contemplative, stripped-down sway of his country ballads. Joining him in the studio were guitarist Pat McLaughlin, bassist Lex Price, and drummer Jerry Roe. All of whom captured their parts in just a handful of live takes while Hood simultaneously tracked his vocals.Stripped free of studio trickery and lushly layered arrangements, Somewhere in Betweenis an honest, story-driven record. One that’s both relatable and deeply autobiographical, with Hood writing or co-writing ten of the record’s eleven tracks, alongside friends like McLaughlin, Brent Cobb --who also appears on the electrified "She Don't Love Me" --Josh Abbott, Jason Eady, and plenty of others. Somewhere in Betweenis an album that finally finds Hood telling his own story. A dedicated family man, he wrote "Locomotive" —a heartlandanthem, full of Telecaster twang and sunny swagger —after watching his young daughter develop her motor skills while playing with a set of blocks. Balancing
his life as a relentless road-warrior, Hood penned highway ballad "Downturn" about a life filled with wanderlust and long drives from gig to gig. As a blue-collar songwriter, Hood shines a light on everyday experiences —from family and friends to the thrill of Friday nights. Partly because he’s stuck to his roots. The native Alabaman still lives in the Yellowhammer State and celebrates America's rural pockets with songs like "Keeping Me Here" and "Real Small Town," two songs filled with images of main streets, open landscapes, hard times, and good people."It's southern music," he says, grouping Somewhere in Between’s wide range of music under an appropriate banner. "That's what it represents: the soulful side of southern music, the country side of southern music, the genuineness of southern culture, and the way I grew up. One of the t-shirts I sell at every show simply says ‘Southern Songs,’ and It's a good summary of what I do. It's what I've always done."
Folk singer-songwriter Natalie Mishell was born and raised in sunny southern California. For most of her younger years, she worked in film, TV, and commercials before moving from Los Angeles to New York to pursue her music career. In 2010, she released the EP, "In My Shoes" (produced by Rich Pagano), followed by an east coast solo tour and the 2011 single, "Sunshine". Natalie’s first full-length record, "Goodnight Stranger," produced by J.P. Bowersock (The Strokes, Ryan Adams) featured Troy Fannin on lead guitar, Cameron Mitchell on pedal steel, Dave LeBlanc on drums, and Tony Oppenheimer on bass. The group toured nationally as Natalie Mishell & Company. In 2016, Natalie recorded new singles “Keep On Lovin” and "So Patiently” accompanied by a live-session music video. In 2017 Mishell collaborated with director Jess Lowe on a unique and haunting music video bringing the song “Devil In Me” to life.
Most recently she formed a folk rock duo with songwriter Jahn Sood (record “All The Things” to be released in 2019) and has been exploring co-writing with a number of songwriters around the globe. She continues making appearances at local NYC venues and curates her own singer-songwriter showcase at Erv’s in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Natalie brings a contagious energy to live shows, greets her audiences with a warm smile, vulnerability and an open heart.
