The Nashville Fringe Festival exists to celebrate the diversity of Nashville artists, and to honor the legends among us who enrich our city and inspire our lives.
This month we open by sharing the most recent installments in the new audio/video series produced by Cold Lunch Records, "Live at Josh's House." Since last month's newsletter, two new episodes are online featuring Nashville artists: Ep. 3 feat. Diatom Deli, and Ep. 4 feat. Love Montage.
Friend of the Fringe Jack Silverman has popped up on a new project in town featuring the aforementioned Diatom Deli, along with Cynthia Cárdenas, Michael Hix, Timon Kaple, Kim Rueger, and Luke Schneider. The group, called Nashville Ambient Ensemble, has issued a new six-track release by the name of Cerulean, which can be sampled or ordered here.
Paul Horton (of Concurrence) has released a new album under his No Stress moniker, titled Prelude No. 1, featuring collaborative work with the likes of other notable names such as Marcus Finnie, Greg Bryant, Dara Tucker, and Brittany Howard. The 10 track release bears elements of "hip-hop, jazz, gospel and a bit of glitch," and is available via yk records.
Elsewhere, the Gripsweats have released a new track titled "This City" (the band features longtime G.E.D. Soul player Andrew Muller), while friend of the Fringe Giovanni Rodriguez adds Cajon/percussion/Bosphorus cymbals to a new track titled "Esperanza."
