Howard Jennings

In a city such as Nashville aka Music City, one would think that record stores would be sacred institutions but rather are being demolished to make way for bigger construction.

Today’s conversation is with a singer / songwriter that expressed his sadness through his latest single, “The Sound Song” when the East Nashville record shop, Fond Object, was torn down for condos.

However, it isn’t all sadness with this Americana singer, his career spans over 10 years with singles on multiple television shows and movies and toured alongside bands such as Vertical Horizon, The Damnwells, and Rusted Root.

This is Howard Jennings…

During our conversation we discuss his daughter’s music debut in his previous release, “Dreams Turn To Gold“. Not only is she quickly becoming a star in his music videos but, also plays a leading role on his Instagram live streams. Insider scope – there will be another Instagram Live featuring his daughter covering Taylor Swift’s “the 1″.

Jennings and I also shared a moment fanning over Swift’s album, Folklore, and the time he ran into Robert Plant at Whole Foods. Talk about fanning over someone…Robert. Freaking. Plant!”

If you’re a fan of honest and heartfelt songwriting, you’ll have to add Jennings’ music into your listening rotation. It’s a big bear hug for your ears and soul.

Bands mentioned that you need to stream:

Abstract – That Rapper

He’s a two time winner of Charleston City Paper’s Best Hip Hop act in 2017 and 2018. You can find him at nearly every hip hop show in town where you can witness his commanding stage presence. He released his first album back in February, Mosaic, that highlights the range of his talent.

Julian Harrell better known as Abstract – That Rapper is one of the most humble, appreciative, and grateful humans I’ve ever interviewed. The interview touches on how Harrell’s perfectionism held him back from releasing music, Charleston’s hip hop community, and his music video for “Wu Would Never Die”.

Listen, share, and enjoy friends.

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.


Curtis shared some great resources during our discussion for singer/songwriters.
