The Cosmic Collective might be the tightest jazz band I've ever seen.
Granted, I haven't seen many jazz bands. But I have seen many other bands. They don't all move as gracefully in and out of themselves as The Cosmic Collective do. It's one thing to see a well-rehearsed band play a set, but it's quite another to see it done with such ease, such confidence.
They made it look easy, and had fun doing it.
Their musicianship was flawless. Each player had that seamless give-and-take that comes only from hours and hours spent practicing and learning and growing together through music. This is the mark of a real band. Being connected. Tapped in. Audio communication. The Cosmic Collective is aptly named.
The band played a mix of covers and originals for the Thursday night patrons of Sambuca (located in Nashville's one and only, THE GULCH). There was a smooth, easy, conversational vibe to the room that they played to with precision. They put forth a wide dynamic range, yet never got so loud as to be unable to hear your date. Some playful banter between songs, fun dance moves, and a knockout voice backed by top level musicians make The Cosmic Collective a group to keep on your radar.
“The pretty side of it; rock is beautiful. I want them to hear rock but also feel that the melodies are cinematic and emotional”
“This is a bill of pure funk. Big bands, big sound, big energy, all to celebrate life!” - Sam Saideman (Innovo Management)
“…I woke up a new person. Alive is the first love song I've written that wasn't about a girl."
Our Hip-hop scene in Nashville may be on the smaller side, but the artists who are doing it, are doing it incredibly well.
Her latest single, “Calm Rage” sent shivers down my spine when I first heard it. The raw intensity of the lyrics paired with the cinematic style of production immediately flooded my mind with images that should be found only in a Hollywood thriller.
As we grow up, we evolve. We become stronger and smarter, we experience life for the good and the bad, and eventually we give in to our authentic selves and become "Who We Are."
We host exclusive, invite-only, listening parties now.
"I never want to create music that does not make people feel free. My hope and prayer is that people, no matter their background, can listen to my music and not only relate, but feel inspired and know there is hope."
Our good friends at Anchor Publicity just surpassed their two-year anniversary! That's right. They have been building bridges and helping artists for an entire two years now.
