Watch & Listen
Killing Grace is an original, dynamic, energy-driven hard-rock band from Nashville, Tennessee.
One of the few local talents to win awards such as 2013's People's Choice:BEST ROCK BAND Nominee's (Music City Mayhem Awards)
and 2014's BEST HARD ROCK/METAL BAND winners (NIMA AWARDS) Nashville Independent Music Awards.
Their style and influences fall into the Hard Rock/ Metal Groove Music category such as Black Label Society, Godsmack, Disturbed and many many more.
With Eric Smith's John Bush like roar and DIO like range along with Kenny's cocksure attitude drumming and Jeff's bluesy yet dark and heavy guitar playing, this band is an undiscovered treasure
Formed in the summer of 2012 in a run down trailer by an old Tennessean highway, Flummox was born in the name of all things weird, unusual, and completely insane. The brain child of two eccentric, magician, teenaged delinquents, Blake Dellinger & Drew Jones, the duo decided to create a band with no sense of genre labels, sound restrictions, or strict musical guidelines. Flummox could be whatever they wanted it to be, and so far, it has been. With the genre of their music hopping among the sounds of heavy rock, funk, extreme metal, jazz fusion, progressive rock, avant-garde, bluegrass, power pop, to doo-wop, the band truly didn't plan on limiting the bounds of what they played to a particular demographic. Teaming up with local producer and recording engineer, Dave Summers, Flummox recorded and self released their first three track E.P. in the fall of 2012. This release attracted the attention of the Minnesota based experimental metal label, Tridroid Records (Voivod, Gorguts, Marduk, Unleashed, Wicked Inquisition), who signed the band for a full length album in late 2013.
As of 2018, the band has shared the stage with a wide variety of performing artists, including The Obsessed, Eyehategod, Fable Cry, Chuck Mosley of Faith No More, Black Crown Initiate, Howling Giant, Iron Man, the Beyond Wings Circus, Black Fast, The Dead Deads, Random Conflict, Oubliette, Mos Generator, Place of Skulls, & Dee Calhoun. The band currently exists as a quintet featuring Dellinger, Jones, Lampley, Pfeifer, & new guitarist, Chase McCutcheon. With a third album slated to be released in the summer of 2018, Flummox is just getting started with their quest for world wide domination of the sanity & free will of mankind. Prepare to get flummoxed, or get the fuck out.
Black Sky Tribe
Formed in 2013, by vocalist Michael Ashley and guitarist Jason Cotter, Black Sky Tribe basically began as a songwriting team. With the addition of Craig Alspaugh on bass and Vincent Ruzzo on drums, the band began making waves as great contemporary rock songwriters, almost immediately. Their first Full length CD, 2015’s “Goodbye Blue Sky”, got national airplay on Nashville’s 102.9 The Buzz (WBUZ 102.9 FM) and Clarksville’s Z-97.5 (WZZP 97.5 FM), with singles “Quitting Time,” “My Turn,” and “Until I’m Gone”. 2018 felt the loss of both Jim Phipps on drums and Cindy Burch on backing vocals, but also saw the addition of drummer Patrick Leeson. This resulted in the band expanding their sound even more. Their commercial appeal, now together with progressive hard rock, gave the band a truly, unique sound. Together with their songwriting abilities, Black Sky Tribe now has become a tight, hard rock reckoning force, gaining tremendous response from international fans worldwide. In the fall of 2018, the band released two brand new singles, “Rise Again” and “Time For Me,” featuring Patrick Leeson on drums, and the band immediately got airplay on December 15, 2018 from nationally syndicated “Metal Works” on Nashville’s 105.9 The Rock (WNRQ 105.9 FM). Influences include Alice In Chains, Queensryche, Days Of The New, and Alter Bridge
