Haunted Like Human is bringing a new roots voice to Nashville: two parts folk, one part Americana, and a dash of some indie vibes. Classically trained guitarist Cody Clark has played everything from post-hardcore to jazz. Vocalist Dale Chapman grew up writing prose and poetry, and she brings her strong imagery and storytelling into her music. Through their myriad of influences, the two strive to create an unique and intimate listening experience for their audience. Their debut album, Ghost Stories, came out in September of 2017, and their next EP is set to release this fall.
Almond&Olive (A&O) creates inspiring songs that span the folk and Americana genres, while also incorporating timeless vocals and the duo’s distinct songwriting. Blended together, the duo's voices sound made for each other, soaring and guiding the music through all the ups and downs of these finely crafted songs.
The music A&O creates comes at you in waves. Together their voices lay down a solid base and tone, funneling you into succinct chorus melodies that build into a crescendo of rich and powerful harmonies. The end result of each song is satisfying and expressive, weaving together themes of love, fear, hope and loss. Each song’s purpose is to mark a moment in time, and give the listener a glimpse into the lives of these prolific songwriters. It’s a vulnerable look at times, though for the most part the music resolves itself to the basic emotions of hope and love, and let’s you know that no matter how low things get, there is a lift coming soon.
A&O believe that, when possible, using their platform of musical creation and performance to give back to those in need is a natural extension of their personal goals - to make the world a better place for those who live in it.
