Paper Route
Paper Route is composed of Chad Howat, J.T. Daly and Gavin McDonald. After forming as a studio project in 2004 they eventually released their debut full-length album "Absence" in April, 2009.
"Absence" sent them on the road for the next two years touring with the likes of Paramore, Phantom Planet, mewithoutyou, Passion Pit, and Copeland. It also earned them several spots in film and television in movies such as "500 Days of Summer" and Tv shows like "One Tree Hill," "C.S.I. New York," "The World of Jenks" and many more.
After taking a short break from touring Paper Route started recording their second album. In late 2011, the band announced that they had finished recording "The Peace of Wild Things" and are planning a 2012 release. "Better Life" was released digitally in November 2011 as its first single.

Paper Route has always considered themselves more of a creative collaboration then just a band. With all members involved in Nashville's art & music scene, they have managed to create a sonic & visual world that has been the bands driving force, and what paper route fans tend to gravitate towards.

The Echo Friendly
Chances are you have something in common with the off and on couple behind The Echo Friendly… the heartsick band takes an unusually honest approach to the trials and tribulations of breaking up. The Echo Friendly are Jake Rabinbach (guitar, vocals) and Shannon Esper (vocals).

Their debut album chronicles an often ambitious friendship fraught with tension and second-guessing over the difficulty of staying close to someone with whom you used to be closer. And yet at root is a bond forger over a love of music: for the ’90s indie rock through which they found a common ground; for Memphis, the home of rock-and-roll where they kindled their relationship and eventually recorded their album. ”Same Mistakes,” a track from the LP that appeared on the first seasons of HBO’s Girls, has Rabinbach and Esper trading vocals as they chide themselves for reverting to old habits.

There are infinite songs about relationships, but rarely do we come across an interplay of music and love as symbiotic – and unabashedly co-dependent – as it does in the work of The Echo Friendly.
