SPEAK LOW IF YOU SPEAK LOVE
No stranger to the music scene, Ryan Graham, the now 23-year-old singer-songwriter, heads back to his roots sporting just a voice and an acoustic guitar to captivate as the ever passionate Speak Low If You Speak Love. Devoted to a rigorous and regular touring schedule and a lust for evoking untapped emotions, SLIYSL is a project aimed to become a household name, thanks to Graham's raw honesty and likeability.

Fusing elements of Evan Weiss-laden melodies with the pop sensibility of Taylor Swift, Graham produces a genuinely new outlook on the cliché acoustic scene. Not only does Speak Low If You Speak Love refuse to cut lyrical corners, but each song is crafted with its own unique identity. With the gift of bare-boned and blunt story telling, Graham extends listeners a personal invitation into the melancholy world he calls home.

With his newest release, "Everything But What You Need," Graham explores his pressing existential inquiries, as well as delving into his recurring life quandary: the failed relationship. Relatable and relevant, EBWYN is a record with something for everyone.

"I feel like it's as if I'm listening to Ben Gibbard's demo tracks for Transatlanticism." - Alex Boundy, Funeral Sounds contributing writer
BETTER OFF
BETTER OFF
The members of BETTER OFF are no stranger to the Nashville alternative rock scene, having played in various other projects in the area in recent years, but this new incarnation undoubtedly sees this group of musicians at their peak… or on their way to it. The album they've created in (I Think) I'm Leaving feels remarkably mature and developed for a debut release, sure to excite fans of a wide range of tastes. Comparisons to the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Brand New, and Knapsack seem fitting, yet BETTER OFF provide enough of their own take on the sound to create their own brand of emotional rock. These are stirring, well-crafted songs that get reveal themselves more and more on each subsequent listen.

BETTER OFF will be releasing (I Think) I'm Leaving on August 27th via 6131 Records / Blood & Ink Records.
