Matt Megrue

He’s fronted the Atlanta pop-punk band, The Unusual Suspects, evolved into an indie rocker of Charleston’s Loner Society, and finally grown into a project that blends punk, emo, Americana and 80’s pop-nostalgia.

During our conversation, we discuss his latest album, The Mourner’s Manual, the lack of rock bands within the current music scene, candy cigarettes, and his own podcast, War and Drink. Don’t miss his album release party for The Mourner’s Manual this Saturday, February 7th, at The Royal American.

Retraction…I mentioned that Imagine Dragons was Grammy-nominated for a Best Rock Album, they were nominated for Billboard’s Top Rock Album.

Lindsay Holler

She’s a fixture in the Charleston music scene as a singer and guitarist. She’s a solo act as well as a leader in three other bands: Matadero, Lindsay Holler’s Western Polaroids, Lindsay Holler and The Hollerettes. Her most recent project the Women & Series at the Charleston Music Hall celebrates popular musicians while highlighting local talent.

This is Lindsay Holler…

Women & Willie is THIS Saturday night at Charleston Music Hall at 8 pm. You will get a chance to see a variety of local musicians for just $17.00. This production has been going strong for several years and growing to be one of the most popular events at the Music Hall (in my opinion).

Emily Curtis

“No one wants to get to the top by themselves.”

In this episode, I chat with local singer/songwriter, Emily Curtis, on the scarcity mindset that occurs amongst the music community. The idea is that musicians are afraid to promote and help other musicians for fear that there isn’t enough room for both acts. Besides discussing our music scene, we dive into the background of her latest single, “Ghost Stories” and how finding a mentor can make all the difference navigating the music industry. Listen to the full conversation below.

Haley Mae Campbell

If you don’t know her name, you will soon. Haley Mae Campbell is a Charleston-raised singer and songwriter that has been bustin’ her booty booking gigs at CMT Fest in Nashville, racking up 1 million streams on her recent Spotify single, and receiving a headlining spot at Charleston’s own Coastal Carolina Fair.

As a musician, she is in constant rotation promoting her music via Instagram, pitching music to Spotify-sponsored playlists (thanks to Spotify for Artists), and networking with fellow musicians and music-industry execs. Campbell spoke about networking in the music industry, including her experience at Charleston Music Confab, our city’s only program of its kind, where she met John Marks, Spotify Country Programming, and Leslie Fram, CMT’s Senior Vice President of Music Strategy. Shout out to Dave Stewart, Charleston Music Confab creator. 🙂

Take a listen to our conversation as we bond over our love for the Old 97’s and share some of her favorite places to visit in Nashville. The best part she gives us some background on her latest single, “Ghost Stories”, which is out today.
