Based out of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Nick Anderson has a voice that takes you into the deepest parts of yourself. At the age of 17, he was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder that leads to depression. As he sat in his basement lost in the darkness of his own mind, a song came on the radio that made him feel like he wasn’t alone. This moment, along with the tools he discovered to manage his mind, solidified a career in music.
As a mental health advocate, and an honest writer, Nick Anderson plays reflective music that digs deep into the emotion of the millennial dreamer, pursuing a style that blends alternative, folk, and power-pop with deep lyrical introspection. His influence is drawn from the likes of John Mayer and James Bay.
His newest release, EPHREM I & II, is a six-track release that puts Anderson's lyrical and songwriting talents on display, backed by his band The Skinny Lovers. Nick wrote the release in an apartment in the basement of an old tire factory called Banbury Place that had a good price. It had one single window peering just above the sidewalk outside. It went on to receive a great response on radio, charting number 1, 12, and 18 in Florida, 8 in Massachusetts, and 24 in Iowa.
Nick has opened for Cartel, The Summer Set, This Providence, and The Millenium, as well as toured the Midwest with platinum selling rock band Saving Abel (Addicted, 18 Days). He has also secured sponsorships with Reverend Guitars and Dean Markley Strings, in addition to working with mastering engineers Emily Lazar and Randy Merrill (Foo Fighters, Beyonce, Adele, Bieber).
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
Marva Von Theo is an Electropop / Synthwave duo formed in 2016 by the Athens-based singer-songwriter Marva Voulgari and the Vienna-based composer-producer Theo Foinidis.
Their Debut Album “Dream within a Dream” was released early in 2018. The 12 songs on their Album, lean towards an electronic sound that incorporates a variety of influences ranging from the music of the 80’s until today. Darkwave sounds, Jazz harmonies, Rock and Dance drum beats resonate together and mature into something darkly romantic.
