Musicians Corner – This week on the 615 show, DJ Casey changes that and makes the artists playing Musician’s Corner the Local Artist of the Week! This weekend we will be playing them all week before the festival. Check out each artist below!
Musician’s Corner kicks off on Friday with a lineup featuring Catalina, Josh Okeefe, Glass Dove, Jason Eskridge and Allison Russell.
The Chilean artist Catalina inspires many with her latest single ‘Control’. Catalina hopes to bring her audience “healing and empowerment in turbulent times” with her new music. She is no stranger to the Lightning 100 and was a successful challenger to Music City Mayhem. With a rich cultural background and influence, Catalina embraces her own sound with diverse inspiration from artists such as Aretha Franklin, Adele, Haley Williams and Maggie Rogers. Listeners can find Catalina’s connection to her Latin heritage in her latest album,

The modern Donovan is now in Nashville. A bona fide Irishman, Josh Okeefe is a folk musician who has been compared to Bob Dylan. He takes the stage at 17:40. His acoustic melodies and the various inflections of his vocals are true to the origins of the traditional folk sound. His most popular single “Keeping Me Goin'” could easily be mistaken for a 1940s Woody Guthrie vinyl with an Irish twist. Armed with an accordion and saddled with a guitar, Okeefe continues to reference his musical inspirations on his latest album.
Glass Dove, an indie band from Nashville founded by Josh Benus, plays at 6:20 p.m. The band describes their music as “D.I.Y. alternative pop songs. from bits of live guitar, MIDI and synths.” They recently collaborated with Desert Noises and Liz Cooper & the Stampede on the single “Patterns of My Mind”. Glass Dove’s latest single “Just a Conversation” is the perfect equation of rock and indie pop, evoking alternative bands like Weezer and Phoenix. Glass Dove are busy working with producer Owen Biddle (The Roots, John Legend) on their upcoming debut album.

With a mix of soul, indie pop and blues, singer Philip-Michael Scales will grace the Musician’s Corner stage at 1:20 p.m. All the way from Chicago, Scales immersed himself in the world of music at a young age. B.B.’s nephew Kinga, soul and blues puts a lot of emphasis on Scales’ musical education. But his singles “O, Hallelujah” and “Feels Like Home” have Black Keys-like beats and rhythms, giving his soulful side some edge.
Then local Nashvillian Preston James takes the stage at 2:15 p.m. and share his passion for music with us all. At age 19, the maturity of James’ voice mirrors that of Waylen Jennings and Merle Haggard.

We look forward to connecting with Preston James on Sunday and supporting his growth as a powerful up and coming artist.
