Is Truett a soul singer? He was raised on Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder and can croon a Sam Cooke song or shout his lungs out a la Jackie Wilson. Is Truett a guitar virtuoso? Hearing him play is like having Albert Collins throw his drink in your face and kick his muddy boot up on your table to solo at the height of his powers. Is what Truett does easy to define? Absolutely not. He’ll take you from the Mississippi Delta to Prince’s Minneapolis, Chicago blues to Bowery Punk, down through Outkast’s Atlanta and out the other side of the psychedelic rabbit hole. That explosive mix makes for a singular experience.
Kate Barnette- Raised in a small north-Georgia town, Kate began singing in church at the age of three. She soon discovered a passion for performing and did it everywhere she could - musical theatre, school talent shows, voice recitals, etc. She experimented with learning several different instruments over the years including piano, trumpet, drums, ukulele, and bass, but recalls picking up her dad's acoustic guitar for the first time in middle school and falling in love with it’s tonality and rhythmic qualities. She began teaching herself and using it primarily as a tool for songwriting - one of her dearest passions. By the age of 18 Kate had written close to 100 songs, dropped out of school, and moved to Nashville to pursue songwriting. After only 6 months in Nashville, she grew bored of songwriter rounds and moved back home to Atlanta to put together a band and start cutting her teeth as a professional musician. Her vocal style is truly unique, with influences such as Amy Winehouse, Norah Jones, and Stevie Wonder. Kate’s sweet and sultry, yet soulful vocals paired with her acoustic rhythm playing immediately catches the attention of every listening ear in the room. She is known for studying and listening to other instruments and applying the phrasing and musicality of each one to her singing. No performance is ever exactly the same, which truly creates a magical experience when seeing Kate perform live. Her “timeless” songwriting is a craft she has truly mastered over the last decade, each song telling a story and containing incredibly catchy melodies. Kate is now is 22 years old, making a living as a full-time musician and playing alongside some of Atlanta’s top musicians. Her self-titled, debut album will be available Jan 12, 2018, which is a collection of some of her favorite songs she has written over the years.
Tyler Jarvis- Hailing from Atlanta, by-way-of Cincinnati, Tyler is a singer-songwriter who brings a fresh and purposeful approach to pop music. With his recently released singles "Way Out" and "Stay True," Tyler tells stories of triumph, but also heartbreak that have defined his personal story. Combining the beauty of blues music, country, classic Americana, and the mainstream sensation of pop, Tyler's music is truly an emotional yet personal experience to any listener.
