Nathan Colberg
Nathan Colberg
Nathan Colberg’s transparent songwriting, rich melodies, and pristine vocals have captivated a rapidly growing fan base on the east coast. With a series of sold-out shows under his belt on just under two years as a recording artist, the twenty-four year old’s future looks promising.



The Charlottesville native grew up playing around on the family piano, but it wasn’t until college that he discovered his passion—and talent—for songwriting. During his senior year, he began to share some of his original songs, performing in living rooms and small gatherings with friends. He recorded 2017’s Barricade as a Christmas gift for his family, and released it to the public a few weeks later. After Barricade garnered high praise from locals—as well as a significant streaming following—Nathan set up a Kickstarter campaign to fund a full-length LP, which turned into Silo, released in March of 2018. Since then, his catalog of music has garnered over two and a half million streams.



About Silo one reviewer writes, "[T]he music and its subject matter are oxymoronic. Beneath the beauty of the music listeners will find lyrics wrestling with themes of brokenness, doubt and anxiety – all feelings that are a regular feature of Colberg’s own life."
Sawyer
Sawyer is a Nashville based duo comprised of Kel Taylor and Emma Harvey that can be described in no other way than “Indie Sparkle Pop.” With comparisons to Lucy Rose, COIN, and HAIM they have built a resonance that can’t be forgotten.
STRUAN
STRUAN is the alt-pop project of Virginia native turned Nashville-transplant, Struan Shields. The project began in the winter of 2017 when Struan ditched his iPhone for a flip phone in order to focus on writing. “I’d spent a lot of time in Nashville writing for other artists and was feeling burned-out,” Struan says, “I wanted to write the music that I’d always wanted to write. I wanted songs that make you feel their meaning without thinking about it and that make you want to sing along, rather trying to be profound or clever.” A year later STRUAN released his lead single “Better”, and appears to have done just that—“this is a tune that will plant itself in your head and stay there until you fall asleep” (Gas Mask Magazine).
