Brian MacKey

About: Brian MacKey

Brian Mackey is spreading a message of honesty to fans across the country with his eclectic blend of pop-rock and folk-inspired lyrics. “My songwriting is really just an autobiographical musical,” muses the New York based artist. “Ironically enough, I've never been a fan of musicals.”

Mackey released his 4th release and first full length album, "Broken Heartstrings" this on November 10th, 2014 (With pre-sale on iTunes November 4th). This release was co-produced by Brian and his long-time producer Sam Ashworth, who also produced his Honest Love EP, as well as several other songs on his "Red EP". Earlier this year, in honor of Earth Day, Mackey released his single, "America", on April 22nd, which also is included on "Broken Heartstrings."

While 'Broken Hearstrings' was two years in the making, Mackey comments about his ups and downs of the process:

"A lot of loss went on around me during the entire process of making this album, both negatively and positively. The name of it came about from my need to break away from an oppressive relationship that tried to make me feel guilty during the entire time. I decided that it would be appropriate to name this new release 'Broken Heartstrings”. Not that my heart is broken - just the opposite; the bond has been broken, the stuff that holds you back, a liberation, a new beginning."

“This album is about putting aside all fears of saying the wrong thing,” he explains. “It’s about putting the rose colored glasses on the floor and smashing them with your foot, and feeling comfortable with the uncomfortable." Standouts on the project include "Desire", "Are You Listening","Philadelphia" and "The Day."

Some of Music City’s finest singer/songwriter/musicians have joined Brian on his projects: producer/singer/songwriter Sam Ashworth, son of songwriter and producer Charlie Peacock (Civil Wars, Switchfoot, Amy Grant) and Six Pence None The Richer’s guitarist Matt Slocum. On his upcoming album, "Broken Heartstrings", famed guitarist Jeff King (Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood) and bass player, Mark Hill (Keith Urban, Reba McEntire) both recorded with Mackey.

In addition to his new album, Mackey spent the summer shooting his new music video for his single "America" with friend and frequent director, Nick Cavalier and photographer, Andrea Coan. Releasing on October 24th, CMT Edge exclusively premiered this new video with a Q &A.

Past Releases

Honest Love was Mackey’s third EP. His first EP, Feng Shui for Slobs, was released in 2008 and the second was Brian Mackey Red released in 2009. Brian's first EP, Feng Shui for Slobs, garnered the placement of "Painted Red" on the Disney TV show, Naturally Sadie, a milestone achievement for his first EP.

Honest Love was so well received that songs from the project were featured on Viso Music, US Airways In-Flight Radio, and the Songs of Love for Japan compilation, alongside stars like Sara Bareilles and Ani DiFranco. Mackey was also recently selected as a SuperCuts® Rock the Cut Artist Ambassador.

Mackey’s songs, including “Color Blue” and “Honest Love,” have also been sought out for use in motion pictures The Boys of Abu Ghraib, starring Sara Paxton (Last House on the Left) and Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings); 29,000 Wishes, 1 Regret, directed by Oliver Robins (Poltergeist); Fake; and Fathoms Deep. "Honest Love" also garnered some advertising and TV placements: Unicef's "Live Below the Line" campaign, and "Out on the Road" in Travel Channel's, "The Layover" with Anthony Bourdain.

“'Color Blue’ was written in a few different places,” says Mackey. “It started out as a guitar song, after the basic idea came from looking out my car window in the wintertime. I brought the idea back into the house, worked on it there, and then put it out of my mind. Later I went down to Nashville to record a different set of songs. On my break I noticed a grand piano in the church, which was converted into a studio, and finished the rest of the song on the piano and ended up recording it.”

Whether it is a winter view through a car window or a morning sunrise, Mackey finds inspiration everywhere. “There are so many experiences in life that you use to paint your picture. It could be the smell of the air, or a look in the eyes of somebody that you meet along the way. It could be a conversation with an old friend. It could be a TV show. It could be a powerful romantic thing or something funny. It could be somebody dying or somebody being born.”

The Florida native’s influences are as varied as his inspirations. Mackey, a classical pianist, loves modern masters Bob Dylan, Jim Croce and The Beatles as much as composers Mozart and Beethoven.

Melissa James

About: Melissa James

Day Dawns is a truly exceptional debut album from Melissa James, a singer-songwriter who has, for some time, been causing a stir at her live shows and attracting a steady stream of followers, entranced by her earthy, soulful sound.

Think Lizz Wright meets Amos Lee as they cross paths with blues man, Eric Bibb and you’d be getting very close. Fusing her love of blues, folk and jazz in a bundle of soul, her songs take you on mini detours, opening you up to the sometimes raw elements of her innermost thoughts. Combined with the velvety power through which she delivers, expect a performance which will leave your spine tingling.

“They don’t write ‘em like that anymore...except they do. Superb singer in classic mould.”
Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

“…great late night listening, this lady is certainly worth checking out.” (Blues Matters!, August/September 2012)

"...James takes all of her musical loves - jazz, blues, soul, folk - and wraps them up into songs that achieve an astonishing array of moods and emotions." 4-stars (Jazzwise, August 2012)

The Unsatisfied

About: The Unsatisfied

The Unsatisfied- raw, high energy rock & roll meets dangerous punk rock with precision. A complete package; a genuine American punk act with so much power and spectacle on stage it's like being hit by a rock and roll lightning bolt.

Formed in 1986 by frontman Eric Scealf, this true blood and glitter operation has toured for many years across the southeast and beyond, sharing the stage with such luminaries as The Misfits, Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls), Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys), Dave Brockie Experience (GWAR), The Murder Junkies, Superdrag, Asphalt Blaster, Georgia Satellites, and Nashville Pussy. They’ve also toured multiple times with HBO’s Real Sex “most dangerous rock band”, The Impotent Sea Snakes.

Playing everywhere from the hallowed stage of CBGB’s in New York, to performing for free at southern skate-parks for underage fans, The Unsatisfied always serves up healthy portions of faith and fire for punk rock aficionados.

"Songs the Belt Taught Us" is the latest full length release from The Unsatisfied. It was recorded at Revolution Sound with Mike Pack engineering and helping the band produce. The album was completed at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, GA with mixing by David Barbe (Bob Mould, DriveByTruckers) and mastering by Drew Vandenberg (WidespreadPanic, DriveByTruckers). "Songs the Belt Taught Us" was released April 27th 2011. It has since been lauded by reviewers as one of the "best rock albums of the year...". "Songs the Belt Taught Us" is featured on Pandora iHeartRadio and Spotify.
The band's latest release is titled "Blood Gospel". It is a stand-alone single available for free download via The Unsatisfied website .
The Unsatisfied is not your average rock band. They may be hard, but they’re more rhythmic than James Brown and embody the sensuality of Prince. It’s punk rock infused with jazz beats and sexual angst, you owe it to yourself to see The Unsatisfied live. Prepare yourself for the Southern music scene's most whispered dirty secret, The Unsatisfied…
