Nashville to Raleigh: Jared Anderson, Natascha Myers, and Erin Mclendon in the round at Deep South.
Come join us for an acoustic night of sharing songs and stories.
Nashville songwriter, performing artist & producer/engineer, Jared Anderson believes that a great song has to start with an excellent lyric. Intricate lines that tell a simple story are what he loves best. The Durham, North Carolina native and Berklee College of Music alum draws influences from Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton and John Mayer to name a few. His songs bridge a unique gap between folk, country, and indie-pop with a touch of all his musical heroes. There’s a sense of honesty in his voice when you hear him sing, the kind that is few and far between these days. Now residing in Nashville, he's making his mark in music city, sharing his thought provoking lyrics and heartfelt melodies. He has played shows at The Bluebird Café, and Listening Room to name a few, as well as worked with artists such as Jason Isbell, Judah and The Lion, and Tommy Emmanuel in the studio.
“No, I really don’t like roses. More of a wildflower gal myself,” Natascha responds, whenever people ask, true to one of her trademark songs, if she really ‘Never Liked Roses’.
Sure, this line paints her as more of a wildflower gal. But it’s also lines like these that characterize Natascha’s writing style of finding new ways to say old things in a way that makes people stop and wonder, “Why hasn’t it been said just like that before?”
With a vocal quality akin to Allison Krauss, a Lori McKenna-like sense for lyrics, and a raw organic sound influenced by Miranda Lambert and Ryan Beaver, Natascha brings a fusion of styles to the Nashville scene.
A style she calls; ‘Where country music meets folk Americana, with a dash of old soul and Iowa upbringing.”
Erin McLendon is a walking, talking poster child for “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” She believes in love, magic, frolic and play, and she dreams BIG! Her childlike outlook on life is not only a quality that defines her quite nicely, it is the combination of her wit, wisdom and love for humanity that is equally endearing.
Now a Music City resident, Erin has become an integral part of the music scene. The Nashville songwriting community and various music industry organizations have welcomed her talents. She has enjoyed collaborations with Britton Cameron, Bryan White and Mike Marcum. Erin released her first, independent, full-length album (titled FIRE & WINE, produced by Stephen Leiweke) in 2015. The album became a Top-100 New Country Album (Art Of The Mix Chart) in 2016 and Erin received recognition with “Female Of The Year,” “Americana Album Of The Year” (FIRE & WINE) and “Song Of The Year” (“You’re The Only One”) nominations from both the IMEA (International Music and Entertainment Assoc.) and Nashville Universe Awards.
Erin paints from a colorful palette catering to Americana, Motown, folk, rock and pop music enthusiasts with eclectic taste (even those who have a love for theatre). Her new album, MAKING IT UP AS WE GO, is an uncomplicated assembly of puzzle pieces from her life—a self-told original story (but much like the rest of us), she takes life one-day-at-a-time with optimistic preparedness for the unexpected and the unknowing.
