LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ARTISTS
J Edwards has had some kind of instrument in his hand since birth, but that voice will shake the rafters. It’s kind of like somebody mixed the attributes of Joe Cocker, Bob Seger, Merle Haggard, Rev. Al Green, Bonnie Raitt and all of your favorite singers that poured it out from the heart and came up with something not like any of them, but still had the sound to take you to forgotten places where you were scared and comforted all at the same time. Somebody said “That voice has purpose. It comes out of his mouth with a job to do and does it. It gets it done” Those smoky tendrils of J Edwards’ songs are creeping across the room at you right now. It’s gonna put a spell on you.
Australian born artist and songwriter, Lauren Vale moved to Nashville TN in 2019 and has been paving her way since. Soon after her 2021 CMT debut, Lauren was featured on Season 3 of National Television show, “The Song”, alongside artists: Sarah Mclachlan, Rob Thomas, Colbie Caillat and Amy Grant. Vale has spent 2023 collaborating with and writing for some of Nashville’s well-loved songwriters and upcoming artists.
A singer/songwriter based in Nashville, Theresa Gorella writes music that is a reflection of her own experiences and sings with rawness and honesty that is both relatable and powerful. She formed an indie rock/funk band called Poster Child with collaborator Andrew Royal, but she felt a pull to get back in touch with her country roots. Her solo project is her way of doing just that, with a sound that blends traditional country with elements of soul and Americana, that she describes as “accidentally country”.
