Joshua Hedley
Joshua Hedley
For years, Joshua Hedley has been making a name for himself as Nashville’s right hand man. Known as the ͞mayor of lower Broadway͟ by collaborators and comrades, Hedley is a fixture at Robert’s Western World, where he plays for tips with his band the Hedliners. The multi-talented singer-songwriter has played fiddle with Justin Townes Earle, Robert Ellis and Jonny Fritz. Now Music City’s favorite son is breaking out on his own. As part of East Nashville’s close-knit brigade of musicians, Hedley has no shortage of support from his peers. He’s featured prominently in the 2015 documentary film Heartworn Highways Revisited, a follow up to the seminal 1976 cult classic music documentary about the 1970s Nashville songwriting community led by Guy and Susanna Clark. Hedley’s soaring, velvet voice and jukebox-ready songs are 60s-era solid country gold. Unlike several of his peers, Hedley’s not trying to put a new spin on an old sound. Joshua Hedley’s country music is your grandfather’s country music and it’s all the better for it.
Elijah Ocean
Elijah Ocean
It’s twenty-sixteen in the southwestern corner of America. There’s snow in the distant mountains and the slow desert sunset creeps through the windshield of the Mercury on 40 West. The young man is driving home, wherever that is.

He was born in a small woodland house in the Hudson Valley, raised in rural Maine, and enlightened by time spent in New York City. He’s landed in Los Angeles for now, where the Sunset Strip is a wasteland, Silverlake has peaked, and the spirit of Laurel Canyon echos through the hills of Highland Park. The end of the world is a damn inspirational place to be.

He writes and records. The hard work shines through in his craft without a scrap of it being over-thought. It’s American music. It’s conceived on highways between cities past their prime. It’s born from memories and dreams of fresh starts. There’s rich history to draw from in Nashville, Memphis, Muscle Shoals, Bakersfield and Austin, but he doesn’t desire a repeat. He celebrates the richness of a multi-generational record collection while adding a fresh voice to the conversation, and the music is new.

Listen up.

Every year Elijah Ocean crisscrosses the country singing his songs and making memories. With three full-length LPs under his belt and a fourth in the chamber, Ocean is just hitting his stride.

For now there’s a much-needed diner booth in Needles on 66. Welcome to California. Set your clocks.
