Join Will Payne Harrison w/ Adrian + Meredith and The Rayo Brothers at Wurst Biergarten this Saturday for the Lafayette release of East Nashville Blues. Doors open at 8 p.m.
Will Payne Harrison:
Nashville based Roots and Americana artist Will Payne Harrison’s new album, East Nashville Blues, is ten tracks of Roots, Folk, Bluegrass and Americana calling to mind the likes Willie Nelson (with tracks such as High As Willie), Merle Haggard, and John Prine. Recorded in East Nashville at Magnolia Sons Studios, East Nashville Blues was produced by Peter Jacobs and Will Payne Harrison with a cast of East Nashville Americana/Bluegrass heavyweights.
Since moving from Louisiana to Nashville, Harrison has toured the South and East Coast, performed at festivals, made radio appearances, hosted songwriter’s nights and even co-wrote a song landing in the feature film Black Beauty starring Luke Perry. Will Payne Harrison’s first single from Louisiana Summer, “Clarity” was featured as a Daily Discovery at American Songwriter.
“With heroes such as Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, and Tom Petty, and a knack for storytelling, this is sure to be a hard hitting album dealing with such emotional topics as fear, faith, love, and loss…keep an eye out for the new album... You won’t want to miss it!”– No Country For New Nashville, Nashville, TN
"Strong guitar, vocals, lyrics." - Birmingham365.org Birmingham, AL
“If you don’t know Will, you should. American Songwriter recently featured the Americana-Folk-Alt Country singer and guitarist as one of their Daily Discoveries.” – The Daily Advertiser, Lafayette, Louisiana
Adrian + Meredith:
In a city filled with country cowboys and sit-on-a-stool songwriters, Adrian+Meredith make a different sort of roots racket. More Than A Little, their debut record, finds the East Nashville-based duo putting its own spin on Americana music, roughing up the genre's edges with the rule-breaking spirit of punk, the vintage twang of old-timey folk, the sneer of rock & roll, and even the frenetic bounce of early Swing and Jazz manouche. Adrian+Meredith’s music produces a rallying cry from two road warriors who, after more than a dozen combined years in the music business, are too smart to play by the industry's rules and too enthralled to turn their backs.
