Koa started in the fall of 2012, with Chase Bader (Vocals, Guitar) and Conor Kelly (Lead Guitar) at Belmont University, following past musical ventures by both. After years of sending material back and forth over the internet to each other, Conor relocated to Nashville, where the two began to reconstruct some of the past ideas. The two met Ryan Ladd (Bass) and began recording what is to be their debut ep Cool It Down, which came out in February 2013. Will Youngclaus (Drums) soon after joined the band locking down the rhythm section, and finally Alex Mathews (Sax), completing the lineup. We’re all about the good vibes and making people dance; come see us play!

The band was formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2009, and currently consists of keyboardist/guitarist/singer Daniel Ellsworth from Minnesota, drummer Joel Wren from Kansas, guitarist Timon Lance and bassist Marshall Skinner both from Ohio. Former member(s) of the band include Ricky Perry who played guitar on their first album, Civilized Man.
In 2010, the band ran a Kickstarter campaign in order to fund their album, Civilized Man. The album was engineered and co-produced by Mark Nevers, who has also worked with Will Oldham, Andrew Bird, Yo La Tengo and Lambchop. The album was recorded at Beech House Studios in Nashville, Tennessee in early 2011, and was released digitally and physically in May 2011.
In late 2011, Amazon MP3 named Daniel Ellsworth and the Great Lakes’ album, Civilized Man, the number 76 album out of the top 100 albums of the year. At the same time, the online music retailer also named the band’s single, “Shoe Fits,” the number seven song of the year. On February 2, 2012, Civilized Man was featured as Amazon MP3‘s Daily Deal and the following week, the album charted on Billboard’s Heatseeker’s chart at position 18.
“Shoe Fits” was released as a music video on August 8, 2011, and was Directed and Produced by Austin Gros, in Nashville, Tennessee. The single was also featured on the Australian Television series Offspring and was included on their Season 3 Soundtrack, released in Australia on June 8, 2012.
The band released their second music video for the song “Bleeding Tongue” on June 6, 2012. It premiered on Paste Magazine.
Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes was named by The Deli Magazine as Nashville’s Best Emerging Artist of 2012. The title was given based on a combination of fan voting and staff opinions.
In May 2013, Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes entered the studio to record their second full-length album at Sputnik Sound in Nashville, Tennessee. The album was co-produced by Grammy Award winner Vance Powell, who has worked withThe Whigs, Kings of Leon, Jack White, and The White Stripes. The album is expected to be released in early 2014 with an extensive tour in support of the album. While in studio, the band was featured in an article in Paste Magazine, including an interview and a write-up saying “There’s very little you can guarantee in life, but one of the surer bets is that Daniel Ellsworth and the Great Lakes will make you dance.”
In anticipation of the band’s new album, Esquire named Daniel Ellsworth & the Great Lakes one of their 15 Bands to Watch in 2014.
The band’s second album, named Kid Tiger, is set to be released on March 4, 2014. The songs were written while the band was touring and represented a collaborative effort of the band members. The first single from the new record, entitled “Sun Goes Out”, was released on January 21, 2014.

Life’s unpredictable purpose always seems to stem from life’s worst tragedies. That is just how Goodbye June was created. In June of 2005, guitarist Tyler Baker received the worst news of his life. His brother, PFC Shane Baker, was home on leave from the military and had been in a fatal car accident. His cousins Brandon Qualkenbush, Landon Milbourn and the rest of the family traveled to southern Indiana to comfort and ease the sting of unexpectedly losing a close loved one. For the next few weeks, the three cousins stayed together to comfort each other, reminisce about old times, laugh and cry over memories and, of course, play music together which essentially lead to the three of them writing songs to help pass the time.
In the months that followed, Landon, Brandon, and Tyler, all first cousins, began spending more time together in a makeshift rehearsal space in Tyler’s basement. “Music became a healthy emotional release,” says Landon, “which helped us to start the healing process and move forward with our lives.” When songs formed, they would take them to a local studio used to record jingles and radio commercials and started recording a demo. Once the demo was ready and they had a few shows under their belt, their family and friends began asking what their band name was. “We decided to name the band Goodbye June, to honor the memory of our brother passing and encapsulate what inspired the beginnings of this band,” explains Brandon, “if he wouldn’t have passed, I’d probably still be painting and never would have pursued music as a career.”
Brandon’s father, a Pentecostal preacher, and Landon’s father, a choir director, evangelized throughout the Bible belt during their childhood. Naturally, the cousins played and sang during these fiery Pentecostal church services. However, their musical influences are not confined to only the music they played in the sanctuary. “I would go and play at the Player’s Pub [a local blues bar in Bloomington, Indiana] and sit in on songs by anyone from Stevie Ray Vaughan to Booker T & The MG’s,” says Tyler. “It changed the way I thought about music. The music was built around moving people, much like the gospel music I was used to playing.” During their teens, Landon and Brandon found themselves listening to the secular music that was never allowed in their homes during childhood. “I remember sneaking in Bush’s Razorblade Suitcase record into my room and playing it with the volume turned down so low I had to have my ear right next to the speaker so my parents couldn’t hear it,” reminisces Brandon. You can hear these shadows of black gospel, blues, and old country hymns mixed into Goodbye June’s brand of rock.
Over the next three years after that long summer of 2005, the boys of Goodbye June began playing their material across the Midwest. They packed up their equipment in a borrowed trailer from a close family friend, and played to whoever would give them a stage. They returned home with stories about near death experiences, sleepless, rowdy nights and a flock of new fans throughout the Midwest. Goodbye June was on the map, and they have been pushing forward ever since. In 2009, taking the advice of close friends in the music industry, the cousins made the plunge and moved to Nashville TN, and became part of Music City’s emerging rock scene.
The members of Goodbye June have spent much of the past decade honing their skill as songwriters along with their proficiency as vocalists and musicians. Although Landon and Brandon are principally identified playing acoustic guitar and electric guitar, both cousins also play piano, drums, accordion and most anything else with strings or keys. Tyler always joked that he could “just play guitar” and that made him less of a man when compared to his multi-talented 1st cousins. Clearly, however, the sum of their collective efforts makes for a much greater musical experience. They typically write together and draw off of each other’s ideas. Being strong songwriters individually, and even stronger as a unit, there is never any shortage of material to build songs around. They have no set method to the songwriting process; the only constant is that everyone gets involved at some point. The fact is, the cousins of Goodbye June are constantly working on their music and perfecting their artistry, because they know that’s what it takes to make music that matters.
Their debut album “Nor The Wild Music Flow” released in June of 2012, alongside their highly anticipated debut music video “Microscope” featuring St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher and country star Steve Holy. The band embarked on a debut European tour in Fall 2013 where they toured through Germany, Sweden, Finland, Holland, Belgium, France, and Spain during a 6-week stint across the Atlantic. Goodbye June also just announced a new album coming soon with Grammy-nominated producer Paul Moak. The band is fired up about the yet to be titled sophomore project, stating “we want this album to showcase our grit and soul by focusing on straight up rock ‘n roll.”
Nashville’s own Craig Jackson Band will have a song featured tonight on ABC’s Nashville!

Aside from the obvious, the band That’s My Kid, and a panda bear don’t share too many similarities with each other. One is a cute, furry, and endangered mammal that mostly resides in the Orient where bamboo chutes are it’s main food source. The other, however, is a rock and roll band whose diet is solely composed of distortion, crash hits, and all things that groove.
Now, entering their second year as a group, That’s My Kid, is making sure everyone knows they’re open for business. From hitting the road touring, gigging around Nashville, or just playing super loud at band practice, odds are you’ll be hearing from them pretty soon.
Forrest Arnold, guitar/vocals, and Abraham Fongnaly, drums/enthusiasm, met in middle school many moons ago in Murfreesboo, TN. It wasn’t until just a few years ago that they started putting some songs together. Shortly after these impromptu sessions had begun, they found the last piece of their musical puzzle, bassist and overall cool dude, Jashaun Smith.
Ever since, TMK has been busy making a name for themselves. That’s My Kid has made themselves regular guests at many different house show venues, and of course many regular licensed venues, as well, all across the southeast. Last April they released their eight-song debut This One which is available for free download on their website www.thatsmykidmusic.com, but their newest release was December’s EP The Dark Horse Sessions recorded in nearby Franklin, TN, also available for a free download on their facebook page.
That’s My Kid is knocking on the door. Nashville’s door, the music door, and most likely your bedroom door because they just wanna hang out. They’re gonna keep on keepin’ on, and pretty soon they’ll be rockin’ and rollin’ right to your front door.

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (February 8, 2012) – Most artists hoping to make it big in country music move to Nashville instead of away from it, but not Sara Jean Kelley. She grew up right here (what if people not in Nashville read this?) in Music City, born into a family of musicians that encouraged artistic expression and never hesitated to jump in the car and head across the country for the opportunity to perform in front of an audience.
Sara Jean could hardly wait to set off on her own adventure, and just days after graduating high school, that’s exactly what she did, loading up her car for a long road trip that would inspire her next move in life. A gal has a lot of time to think while behind the wheel, hours upon hours of asphalt flying by underneath, and what started as a simple vacation turned into a two-year sabbatical spanning the west. She reveled in the vast Colorado wilderness that would become a temporary new home and soaked in the inspiration that surrounded her, never forsaking her Southern roots.
After 2 years in Durango, home called to Sara Jean and she hit the road back to Nashville. She was sharpened by the journey, having had plenty of time to discover what she was put into the world to do and hone her skills as a performer.
Since the age of 16, Sara Jean has been captivating audiences across the country with her classic beauty, sultry voice and haunting lyrical stories. She has both roughed it out on the road, singing for her dinner and a bed to sleep in for the night, and snagged her own private dressing rooms in some of the most notable US venues, sharing stages with her icons: Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson and Rodney Crowell, just to name a few. Her slew of original songs offer the familiarity of traditional country and bluegrass while mixing in a healthy dose of modern Americana.
Like many great artists whose ambition is driven by their passion, Sara Jean is her toughest critic. In 2010, she performed for thousands of fans at Mobile, Alabama’s BayFest Music Festival. After a heart-wrenching performance received by thunderous applause, she kicked herself unforgivably for reversing the lyrics to a line of one of her songs during the encore. She was almost inconsolable until the next day when, despite the fact that the festival’s bill included a long list of major headlining acts, it was her picture that appeared on the 1A cover of the Mobile Press-Register, under the headline “Perfection.” It was no surprise that she was invited back to the same festival in 2011.
It is that tenacious spirit that drives Sara Jean to always improve, to always challenge herself. She is carrying the torch for a new generation of Americana artists. With her sights set on recording a new album this year (a follow up to 2006’s “Dollhouse”), Sara Jean has been writing relentlessly on her own and with several other Nashville songwriters including Jedd Hughes, Big Kenny and Will Kimbrough (guitarist for Emmylou Harris). Kimbrough is also slated to produce the project, along with Dave Coleman of The Coalmen, which will be released by the end of this year.
We’ve had a great year of new music on 100.1 FM. Thanks for your help and suggestions. Tune in all day for the Count Up, Count Down of our 100 favorite songs of 2013. What song do you think will be #1?

Since 1996 Lightning 100 has been broadcasting live from 3rd & Lindsley every Sunday Night starting at 8pm. We’ve had some amazing shows over the years and some of them will never be heard again. Jeff Buckley played the show once and the recording is no where to be found. Luckily many of the shows were archived and you can enjoy many of them right here. If you have a request for a favorite show you would like me to try and track down please send me an email with NASHVILLE SUNDAY NIGHT as the subject to Buckley@Lightning100.com Enjoy!
