Artist of the Week: Future Thieves

Future Thieves

One of Nashville’s most exciting emerging acts, Future Thieves, comprised of Elliot Collet (vocals and rhythm guitar), Gianni Gibson (drums), Nick Goss (bass), Stan Nickell (lead guitar) and Austin McCool (lead guitar) formed in the fall of 2013. The American rock band can trace their beginnings to previous endeavors between Collet and Nickell, who played an Americana/blues style focused around Collet’s singer/songwriter mentality. After moving to Nashville, the two teamed up with McCool and Goss to form a sound influenced by classic rock and big indie rock. Gibson then joined on and meshed immediately as the group began rehearsing and writing.

Collet, a coal miner’s son from Kentucky, teamed up with the heavily blues influenced Nickell after running live sound for numerous artists and traveling to play shows in and around Nashville. Before moving to Tennessee with Nickell, Collet graduated with an audio engineering degree in Lexington, KY. Nickell’s blues background comes from a similar small town upbringing where his father’s taste in music led Stan to create his own style of guitar phrasing while developing a love of guitar repair and technical work.
