“For Fans of Tom Petty’s hooks, Little Feat’s grooves, the rock and soul wing of Americana.” – Rolling Stone
In celebration of the fifteenth anniversary of “A Drop in the Ocean”, Ron Pope will be performing his album Daylight in its entirety and will have a few special surprises in store for each show.
Uncompromising and relentless, Ron Pope has evolved into one of the top-grossing independent acts in the business while garnering a legion of devoted fans the world over. Taking the industry road-less-traveled and holding fiercely to his independence has proven fruitful for Pope; to date, he has sold out shows on three continents and in more than twenty countries, sold over two million digital tracks, has nearly half a billion streams on Spotify, 880 million plays on Pandora, 150 million views on Youtube, and has generally crushed every metric used to measure what is possible for most independent artists.
Pope made a name for himself in the early days of music streaming with the viral success of his song, “A Drop in the Ocean” – which has now been streamed over 1 billion times, going platinum in the US and double platinum in Sweden. Once a die-hard New Yorker, Pope ultimately landed in Nashville where his songwriting is a natural fit for the Americana, roots, and country communities. In early 2022 he landed in Nashville Scene as twelve artists you need to watch.
Pope’s latest, 2023’s Inside Voices, features ten of the rawest, most vulnerable, stripped-down songs he’s ever recorded. With Inside Voices, Ron taps into his own vulnerabilities while simultaneously expressing gratitude, even in the wake of darkness.
Nashville-based singer/songwriter Taylor Bickett is a storyteller at heart. She first found a platform of over 285k on TikTok through her narrative, heartstring-tugging songs, and since the release of her 2021 debut single, her music has amassed over 40 million streams. Her 2022 single “QUARTER LIFE CRISIS” garnered over 400k user-generated videos across social platforms of adults (including stars like Drew Barrymore and Kevin Jonas) showing their transformations since age sixteen to the lyrics, “I swear 16 was yesterday.” Her music has been placed on Spotify’s “Viral 50” (#10), “big on the Internet,” “Pop Sauce,” “young & free,” “Chill Pop,” “New Pop Picks,” “Hits Don’t Lie,” “Songs to Rage to in 2022” playlists and more.
Taylor has recently opened for artists such as Laura Marano and Andi Mitchell on tour and performed at Nashville’s Live on the Green festival (headlined by Sheryl Crow, COIN, and more). Her debut EP, Grown Up and Lonely, is out now.
Zach Berkman, a Nashville-based artist, producer, and songwriter explores love, loss, and personal growth in his eighth album, The Heart Of. Typically a solo artist, Berkman embraced collaboration with a collective of fellow artists. Growing up in Peoria, Illinois along the banks of the Illinois River, Berkman was raised in a region that calls itself “the heart of” the state. He also describes true collaboration as getting to “the heart of” or “the center of the idea” whilst incorporating various sounds, his conviction that what we create should be the essence – the heart of – who we are. Berkman’s poignant lyrics, complemented by acoustic instrumentation, weave a relatable tapestry of emotions. The Heart Of transcends Berkman’s initial quest for answers, evolving into a celebration of artistic collaboration—a bittersweet and introspective exploration of life’s complexities.
