MARY MICHAEL / PACIFIC / JONATHAN ROBINS

************************************************

Mary Michael

Looking through old scrapbooks and home-videos from Mary-Michael’s childhood, you’ll be hard pressed to find a page or a tape that doesn’t show her with an instrument, walk-man, or microphone in her hands. Self-admittedly, Mary-Michael has been obsessive when it comes to all things music for as long as she can remember. Her earliest memories of music that inspired her as early as second grade were bands like Coldplay and U2 (thanks Dad) and Kelly Clarkson.

By 2006 when Taylor Swift released her self-titled album, Mary-Michael had settled it: she HAD to have a guitar. That Christmas, her dream came true and from that day froward she spent every waking moment that wasn’t school or sports locked in her room figuring out chord structures.

In 2008 she began writing her own songs and playing in front of people. However, the journey from bedroom musician to public performer took Mary-Michael longer than most. She was really content sitting on her bedroom floor soaking up all the music she possibly could and truly considered herself “just a guitar player.” But thankfully around the age of 17, something shifted and Mary-Michael began to own her craft as an artist.

With new wind in her sails, Mary-Michael left for college to pursue a degree in Songwriting. Her weekends were filled with coffee shop gigs and her summers were full of camps. Those years fortified her musical skills and desires although they were full of ups and downs.

Now back in Atlanta, Mary-Michael has enjoyed dabbling in writing and recording music within the Christian music industry, but she has far more up her sleeve. She likes to call her sound “a little folk, a little rock n roll, a lotta dancing.” Pulling from early influences like Coldplay, U2, Paramore, and Switchfoot, as well as more recent influences like Noah Gundersen, Ed Sheeran, and Johnnyswim, Mary-Michael’s music flows effortlessly from the acoustic story-telling of folk to the soaring melodies and gritty guitars of rock.

An EP can be expected of Mary-Michael in the year 2020 and many more shows played between now and then. This is just the beginning— hope to have you along for the ride.

Pacific

Pacific is an alternative band from Nashville, TN formed originally by frontman Will Hunter at the end of his time at Belmont University.

The one piece became a four-piece after the release of their debut "Supposed To EP" when Will met drummer Nick Valdez, bassist Cory Andersen, and keys player “Nanny” Philbrick and spent three months traveling together, playing shows across the southeastern part of the US.

Pacific released three strong singles, including their most popular “WYAF” at the beginning of 2019.

The Pacific sound is new, yet familiar - nostalgic and fresh.

Largely inspired by the alternative rock music of the early 2000s (Goo Goo Dolls, All American Rejects, Thirty Seconds to Mars), the pop music of the 70s and 80s (The Beatles, U2, The Cure) and the pop alternative music of the modern day (Coldplay, The 1975, LANY),

Pacific wants to represent every genre they feel inspired by.

“There is really nothing we aren’t inspired by in some way,” says frontman Will.

With only a short amount of time on the scene, Pacific has already made big waves in Nashville including being Artist of the Week on popular Nashville radio station Lightning 100 and playing some of its prestigious venues like Exit/In and The High Watt.

Jonathon Robins

When he was in grade school, Jonathon Robins taught himself to sing on a toy karaoke machine. He practiced between the time he got home from school and the time his parents got home from work. At the age of twenty-two he entered and won a radio contest that landed him his first gig, singing the national Anthem to a crowd of 40,000 at an Atlanta Falcons football game.

He spent the next few years honing his songwriting and stage-craft by attending Atlanta’s best songwriter open mic nights at venues such as Eddies Attic (John Mayer, Shawn Mullins, the Civil Wars). During the day he worked on finding an online audience. After some trial and error he began building a fan-base on Youtube by posting live performances of cover songs in a variety of unconventional settings. A recent video of Jonathon performing an Adele cover in an empty parking lot garnered over 300,000 views.

Jonathon’s musical style is rooted in classic soul music but often wanders into the realm of contemporary pop and country music.
