Kelly Hoppenjans brings sultry, sentimental pop to Homegrown Taproom (9.01)

More than a few big names come to mind when listening to the careful, quirky alt-folk crafted by Kelly Hoppenjans on her June EP Dreaming Is Easy—Imogen Heap, Brandi Carlisle, Regina Spektor, to name a few. She experiments with her own vocal and artistic range to create a wide soundscape for a singer-songwriter. Her lyrics reveal a complicated battle of emotions that often contradict each other (“you can sell me short and I will buy,” “I’ll wear my tightest skirt and my thickest skin”), creating an emotional experience that anyone can relate to. Catch the sultry, raw pop of Kelly Hoppenjans before she embarks on tour on September 1st at the Homegrown Taproom in Tennessee. - Lilly Milman

Elliot Root to release 'Conjure' LP on 8.25 + kicks off tour with Rainbow Kitten Surprise

It’s easy to see how the heavy-hearted alternative pop of up-and-comers Elliot Root came to fruition, as the four-piece band formed in the heart of Music City itself. Since releasing their EP Thoughts From Yesterday last year, Elliot Root has seen their fair share of success. They’re following up with their debut LP called Conjure, set to be released on August 25th. They’ve already shared four singles off the LP, the most recent being the soulful stadium-ready anthem “Stay” (streaming below.) This isn’t a track to be listened to through headphones, which is a good thing considering they are beginning a tour with Rainbow Kitten Surprise in a couple of weeks. They will be playing a Nashville show on September 2nd at the Live On The Green festival. - Lilly Milman


Pale Lungs finish up tour after 'Strawberry' EP release

The debut EP release Strawberry by Pale Lungs—a four-piece hailing from Murfreesboro, Tennessee—is a tour de force of emo indie rock. It’s lyrically sound with songwriting comparable to Brand New, in addition to having iron-clad arrangements. The EP achieves a sometimes dreamy and lush sound without abandoning tight percussion and guitar parts. It moves slowly but with a definite direction, giving the listener adequate time to soak in every song before moving on to the next. They are currently on the tail-end of a tour, with stops left in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York. - Lilly Milman
