Born in Boston but now based in Nashville, John Shakespear will release an album dedicated to his shared identities on May 10th called Spend Your Youth.

Erin Enderlin releases three music videos to mark EP release

Often when an artist releases an EP, they'll release a music video for a track around the time of release. But Erin Enderlin just released her three-track EP Chapter One: Tonight I Don't Give A Damn, along with a video for each song on the record. It's all part of a concept to release four EPs throughout the year, each one featuring songs built around the characters on Enderlin's 2017 record Whiskeytown Crier. The new EP begins with "Broken" from Whiskeytown Crier, before moving on to tell more of its character's story. In "Tonight I Don't Give A Damn", Enderlin sings of the character's ambivalence with romance, her descent into drunkenness, and her recounting of a one-night-stand with a random bar patron. Listen to the full EP to follow the character's full story, and stay tuned for more EPs to come from Enderlin in 2019. Take a look at the video for "Tonight I Don't Give A Damn" below. - Will Sisskind

A bit of fun: Alt-rockers Lights of Marfa cover Billy Joel's "Big Shot"

And now, for something completely different. Lights of Marfa share the Nashville alt-rock scene with colleagues like The Ivins; their thunderous sound shakes stages around town. Recently, the band have pushed themselves to put out a new single each month; last month's single, an original called "Live To Forget", had a ballad-like quality to it, and February's "Run To You" was a straightforward rock cover of the Bryan Adams original. This month, Lights of Marfa have again chosen to go for a cover, this time giving their alt treatment to Billy Joel's 1978 single "Big Shot". Joel's version laid heavy on the rock elements, making it a timeless track that any modern rock band could tackle with ease. Lights of Marfa do it justice without stripping the original of its fire; take a listen for yourself down below. - Will Sisskind
