As the founder and front man of Nashville folk-rock outfit, Humming House, Justin Wade Tam has toured internationally and throughout the U.S. with opening slots for artists such as Emmy Lou Harris, Kacey Musgraves and Drew Holcomb. Last fall, he released A Place To Land, his first collection of songs as a solo artist. Jordan Lehning’s sparse production style on the four song EP is the perfect backdrop for Tam’s descriptive lyrics.

Skylar Gregg exudes retro southern rock ‘n soul mixed with the country and blues sounds of the 60s and 70s. I first heard Skylar’s voice as a background singer on a few stages around Nashville, but she’s been writing and performing in this town for most of her life. Her sound was born out of a musical family, her parents came to Nashville both to pursue music careers. She worked with Nashville multi-instrumentalist and producer Jon Estes on her new album, Roses, a departure from her previous two releases which she produced with her husband, Taylor Lonardo at their home studio.

Part of what I love about being a DJ at WMOT is the consistent new music discovery. Dan O’Rourke reached out to me for airplay consideration on The Local Brew Hour, WMOT’s weekly local music show, with what he described as a very timely, cultural song. “For That Matter” knocked me out. I had to hear it again immediately. After many listens, it steered me to Dan’s previous releases. His 2019 album, Desert Rose reflects his passion for the history and beauty of the southwest and Traveling Soul is a six-song ep, released in 2016.
