Lightning 100 was able to hook up a few lucky listeners for a private performance with Hozier over at William Colliers. Hozier sold out two night stand at Exit/In and then Ryman Auditorium within the first year of his debut album. Guess who played his single first? To thank Lightning 100, Hozier performed “To Be Alone” and his hit single “Take Me To Church“. Click here to watch the HD video performance!

“What I love about Nashville is that there’s such a sense of family here,” claims Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter LP (Laura Pergolizzi) as she sits in Nashville’s own Peter Nappi, a premium Tuscan leather footwear and goods boutique. Born and raised in New York, LP first began her career as a musician in 1998 when she was seen performing by David Lowery of the band Cracker, who later began to help her produce her debut album Heart-Shaped Scar. As her career escalated, LP eventually landed a record deal with Warner Bros. Records, which ultimately lead to the release of her most recent album Forever for Now.
This past September, LP performed at Lightning 100’s Live On The Green Music Festival as well as Lightning 100’s weekly concert series Nashville Sunday Night, a live broadcast live from 3rd and Lindsley. “Night Like This”, the leading single from her 2014 album Forever for Now, received airplay on Lightning 100 and was a huge hit during her performance of the song at Nashville Sunday Night. “Night Like This was really fun last night…it was the first time I had seen people really respond to that song,” LP says in this week’s video episode of the live broadcast, “it was more of a communal thing”, she remarks, “I enjoy that part of it.”
