The last Frothy Monkey Local Artist of the Week for the month of May is Josh Rennie-Hynes. His latest release “Day Rage” from his 2022 album of the same name exemplifies the bright future of Nashville’s music scene. There are faint hints of classic country but more than anything, it’s an ode to the indie song of your dreams.
It’s a song that reminds you of the power of a good, timeless track.
Australia-native Rennie-Hynes launched the Tennessee chapter of his career with 2019’s “Patterns.” Prior to the move, he performed as a solo act and then as a duo, joining forces with Steve Grady to form The Ahern Brothers. The band released six singles and one self-titled album before parting ways in 2018.
Since then, Rennie-Hynes has found his place in Nashville. He has hit the stage at renowned venues like The High Watt, Mercy Lounge and, most recently, The Dive Motel.
The Dive Motel, which opened in 2019, played host to Rennie-Hynes’ listening party for “Day Rage” earlier this year.
The album sounds, in every sense of the word, independent. It’s honest, it’s timeless and it’s sure to be – at the risk of sounding cliché – all the rage.
