Thayer Sarrano

"like shoegazing with a twang, but there’s a maximalist epic thing going on, too. It’s rare that a singer is able to balance synthesizers with a slow, Southern vocal palette, and it’s almost like inventing a new language of song. Well, here it is, and it’s gorgeous!”

– FlyPaper



"Meet the woman with the most world-weary voice in music: Thayer Sarrano. She's most assuredly creating the soundtrack to whatever becomes the next The Craft or Natural Born Killers — a little bit industrial grime, a little bit shoegaze, a little bit dark as..."

-Refinery 29




"Sarrano can morph from angel to devil in the same song. The looming atmosphere of dread and submission conjured on Shaky turns over a new page in Southern Gothic storytelling" —Pop Matters



"there is an aura of “southern gothic” via twangy guitars, deep woodsy echoes and a rhythm like cautiously trudging through those woods. But she also exudes a patina of the urban, opiatic tenor of ’90s gaze-girls like Opal or Mazzy Star."

- CMJ



“Pitting a murky, ominous, lumbering arrangement against her ethereal voice, with its consciously mysterious dearth of affect, Sarrano crafts a sound that is hauntingly eerie. Bringing this palette to a canvas that includes country, psych, Southern Gothic, even industrial, it’s easy to imagine her scoring True Detective‘s first season.”

– Elmore Magazine


Sarrano’s dreamy songwriting often gets labelled as psychedelic, but her poeticisms are so spiritually minded that transcendental might be a better descriptor”- Immersive Atlanta



"You know sometimes you can just feel another world at the same time, maybe it is some higher self or just being more connected," asks Athens, GA-based THAYER SARRANO rhetorically about the inspiration for her new album Wings Alleluia which is set for release on March 29, 2019 via The Guildwater Group. Deeply poetic and musically pastoral, her fourth album is an exploration of textures and melodies reinforcing the title that Americana UK bestowed upon her as “The New Queen of Shoegaze.”



The follow-up to 2015's Shaky, Wings Alleluia displays the layered tapestry she musically weaves that Huffington Post called “a Southern-psych dreamland, bottling up ghosts and bringing them to life through her ethereal hymns." From the moody opening track “O My Soul” that tickles the lower registers while Thayer’s otherworldly vocals soars above, to the guitar-led meditation “These Arms” which traipses over a backwoods-ian twang, to the dramatic “White Shores”, the album exists on an almost transcendental level, a mindset that she subscribes to. Thayer explains, “I’ll be dealing with whatever is happening in front of me or the emotion of a beautiful or terrible situation, and the lyrics that I’ll get for some reason usually tend to come more from the abstract higher place because it provides more clarity.”



A multi-instrumentalist – she is a classically-trained pianist and also plays pedal steel guitar, oboe, and percussion, Thayer has been composing instrumentals since she was a child while also feeding her visual creative outlet through paintings, drawings and sculpture. Uniquely finding lyrical inspirations from her own artwork, it allows her to tap into her emotions and internal dialogue better than writing a linear storyline. “I have always done a lot of paintings and drawings - sometimes little sculptures - that help me translate something,” she explains. “For this album, there were a lot of fragments of drawings that would help me create a lyric, so my sketchbook is filled with drawings that inspired lyrics throughout the album.”



Since 2009, she has released three LPs and toured heavily, headlining tours in the US and Europe, as well as supporting Drive-By Truckers, Television, Robyn Hitchcock, Camper Van Beethoven, Cracker, Nicole Atkins, The Whigs, she has also been a featured guest vocalist at a Big Star’s Third show in Athens amongst other things. Her songs have been featured on network television, in the Netherlands' Groninger Museum, and she won the Flagpole Music Award for Music Video of the Year (2016) for "Shaky." Last October, she released a 7 inch with a book of drawings for the stand alone track, “I Will Never Be Used to Your Beauty,” with a cover of Leonard Cohen’s "If It Be Your Will" as its b-side, featuring producer and artist Andy Lemaster.



Her new LP will be released on March 29, 2019 and features the Athens Cowboy Choir, T. Hardy Morris, Justin Collins, Parker Gispert, Billy Bennett, and more
Tedo Stone
With a sound that has drawn comparisons to Alabama Shakes, Dinosaur Jr. and at times Neil Young, Tedo Stone’s live show is one not to miss. Tedo was born to play rock and roll. Growing up in a family with a musical father and where brothers handed down bass guitars to younger siblings like old sweatshirts, Stone was fronting a band and playing in motorcycle bars around his hometown of Covington, Georgia, when he was 12 years old. While hanging out in Athens, Georgia and playing with the endless array of talented young musicians there, Stone realized his songs were sounding different live, evolving with a mixture of wailing guitars and raw emotion. Tedo Stone's highly anticipated third full length studio album, Summer Sun, will be released in November 2017 on Laser Brains.
Little Francis
Named in homage to pioneer wildmen like Little Richard and Little Walter, Atlanta’s Little Francis works from a love for simple, old styles of rock & roll music, but without resorting to kitsch or irony. More than anything, Little Francis loves a good song, and singer/guitarist Steven Francis Grubbs, Jr’s songs are fervent, anthemic, and catchy while still feeling like part of a deeper music history—one connected to ‘50’s rock & roll, hill country blues, and even ‘80s punk—and the band’s spirited live shows flow from those traditions, too. Behind Grubbs are Mason Brown (Flamingo Shadow, Brainworlds) on bass, filmmaker/artist Jordan Noel on drums, and Greg Tankersley on acoustic guitar and backing vocals. Their debut LP, I Will Sink Like All Good Things, was released in January 2019.
