Harrison Hudson

For a band that has spent a good portion of their time together on the road, releasing a new full length album in this year of non-touring may have dissuaded some, but on Great Peacock’s third release, Forever Worse Better, the band sounds tighter and surer of themselves than ever before.

Kirsten Balani

Tampa native, Colleen Orender started her singing career at just five years old performing in her grandfather’s country band. Teaming up with producer Michael Davey here in Nashville, her sound moved in a different direction that has drawn comparisons to Amy Winehouse, with a touch of James Bond. Colleen has been releasing singles, was featured on the Local Brew Live last year with her Christmas release, “Blame It on The Mistletoe” and she has just released a video for her new song, “Love Me Harder”.   

King Corduroy

Classically trained on violin since the age of four, Florida native Dayna Bee is an in demand hired gun as a performer and string arranger here in Nashville. Since moving to town, she’s shifted her style to more of a classic country meets current Americana sound fronting her own band and releasing her songs. She’s also part of King Corduroy’s band, as he is hers and recently worked with The War and Treaty. She teaches violin, she’s a horse lover and makes the best peach cobbler I’ve tasted since my grandmother’s and it’s been many years since I’ve had one of those!

New York raised, Nashville based Jillette Johnson has announced the release of her third album, It’s A Beautiful Day and I Love You, due February 12, 2021 and she’s given us two singles so far. I caught up with Jillette about “Annie” and “I Shouldn’t Go Anywhere”, new merch (a previous Jillette Johnson tee is my most worn band tee ever) and getting to make music with friends.

AnaLee: “Annie” is your newest single and it is one fun, upbeat, very catchy song. Talk a little bit about the inspiration for this one.

I used to run into Joel King, bassist/vocalist for The Wild Feathers, and his wife Heather at the Kroger where I shop. Now I don’t even get out of my car when I go there so, no more casual catch-up chats. I’ve been wondering what the band has been up to during the pandemic after their tour with Blackberry Smoke was canceled in March. I remember seeing them play backstage at 3rd and Lindsley, then headline and sell out that venue and onto their sold out Ryman Auditorium show in June of 2016. They recorded that show and released Live at The Ryman in November of the same year.
