BEN STRAWN

Currently residing in Atlanta, GA, Ben Strawn took a brief songwriting hiatus after the release of his debut 2020 album, “See in Color,” to broaden his musical horizons. 

Strawn spent most of 2020-21 writing and recording songs with Chattanooga, TN bandmate, Ivan Garcia, as the two formed an indie-pop side project under the name “naavi.” This provided Strawn with a much-needed palate cleanser, which led to him finding and honing in on a new sound. 

Influenced by artists such as Kate Bollinger, Arlo Parks and Kings of Convenience, Strawn has created a fresh sonic landscape for himself by combining jazz-pop sensibilities with his rich vocal tone and indie-folk writing style. Strawn has opened for acts such as The Band Camino, Medium Build, Jordy Searcy and Daniel Nunnellee, and he’s currently recording his second LP.


ANDREW JAMES

They say that timing is everything, and roots rock singer-songwriter Andrew James ought to know. A Texas native who got his start as a guitar-slinging sideman, James broke out as a solo artist in 2016, when his Shoreline EP arrived to unexpected streaming success. Appearing at the dawn of a boom in curated playlists, it stood precariously on the edge of an emotional canyon, with soft-spoken confessionals capturing a sense of melancholy beauty to rack up more than 12 million plays on Spotify and counting. But now, the time has come to move forward. With What Am I Running From? – James’ long-awaited full-length album debut – the thought provoking Nashville tunesmith turns to face his inner turmoil, and move toward a new musical chapter. Over the course of 10 tracks co-produced by Rocko Wheeler and engineered by Andrija Tokic at East Nashville’s Bomb Shelter studio, James blends roots-rocking drive with folk curiosity and indie-pop whimsy, as the grayscale themes of self reflection find a technicolor sonic contrast.
