A look into what it takes to make it as a Singer/Songwriter here in Music City.
The SLVR Tongues
What brought you to Nashville?
With our modern take on contemporary country, we definitely knew it would be a good fit. Music in Nashville has always been more about the story, and as songwriters that’s what we live for.
Tell us about what it takes to be a singer/songwriter in Music City?
Everyone’s experience is different, but in our experience the best thing you can do is write, write, write and don’t lose sight of what brought you there in the first place.
Who/What inspired you to take this path?
The inspiration varies between the three of us, but some of the answers are Guns and Roses, .38 Special, Paramore, Black Sabbath, Kacey Musgraves, Jim Morrison, Shania Twain, Michael Jackson, Thin Lizzy, among countless others... quite eclectic. We just never really imagined doing anything else. Writing songs and traveling and playing music is just what feeds our souls. But not in like a creepy Hades way.
Describe some of the roadblocks you’ve faced so far in your musical journey in Nashville.
For us, the most challenging thing has been having a guitarist that lives in Europe. It can be tough to schedule shows when you’re coordinating between multiple time zones and continents.
Biggest misconception the public has about the music industry?
That it’s the same it’s always been. Social media and the presence of Spotify and other platforms have drastically changed the music scene. It’s so interesting to see how innovative some of the minds are behind the music on the business side of the industry in navigating this tricky territory.
Things you are most excited about right now?
The new Music we’re recording, and returning to Europe next summer to play some music festivals!
What should people be looking forward to from you?
We’re truly just getting started. We have so much more of ourselves to share with the world, and we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface. Also, constantly working on new dad jokes.
