Brett Sheroky and Friends Return to the Venue

Brett Sheroky and Friends Return to the Venue

Apr 13, 7:00pm

VENUE on Main

A native of Belleville, IL, artist/writer Brett Sheroky moved to Nashville in 2009. Working as a speech therapist by day, Brett spent a decade outside of the music business, just focusing on writing better songs. That disciplined approach paid off in 2020 when Brett signed his first publishing deal with Sea Gayle Music. Within the first year of his deal, Brett's songs were recorded by an impressive group of major label artists, including Blake Shelton and Granger Smith.
Brett has since penned singles for Jake Owen, Matt Stell, Noah Thompson (American Idol Winner), Bryce Leatherwood (The Voice Winner), Randall King and numerous others.

While finding success as a songwriter, Brett has also been making a name for himself as an artist, earning a place on country music's "Who's Next?" list. With a unique sound falling somewhere between '90s country and '70s rock, Brett's songs reveal his reverence for the craft of songwriting, while speaking to the human condition. What's more, Brett's natural ability to engage an audience creates an atmosphere where his live performances feel less like shows and more like experiences. These attributes have all contributed to Brett's growing fanbase. With their diehard support Brett recently crowd funded his debut full length album, which he is currently working on in the studio.

Dan Wilson - Dan writes for Black River Music. Member of the band, MamaDear who has been featured in Rolling Stone, Billboard, and American Songwriter. Has shared the stage with artists such as Josh Turner, Enrique Iglesias, and Seal.

Andrew Peebles - Previously with Arts & Crafts Music in Canada. Songs recorded by Blake Shelton, David Boyd Janes, and numerous independent artists. As a drummer has played the Grand Ole Opry twice and opened for artists such as Sting, Santana, and John Legend.

Waymore Outlaws Return

In the mid-70’s Waylon Jennings and The Waylors were a pivotal force that knocked Nashville and country music back on their heels with their own way of doing things, standing up for their rights to create their own music, a movement they called Outlaw music.

A few years after the passing of Waylon in 2002, his Waylors’ band members, Richie Albright, Jerry Bridges, and Fred Newell, formed Waymore’s Outlaws to honor Waylon and to keep his music alive. A year later they invited Tommy Townsend to join their Outlaw band on lead guitar and vocals.

Today, Jerry, Fred and Tommy tour the country telling real stories and singing the songs we all grew up with. Only 50 Seats will be available.

John Dennis Returns to the Venue

John Dennis Returns to the Venue

May 17, 7:00pm

VENUE on Main202 West Main StreetBelleville, IL62220 Map

John Dennis has been Nashville, TN based singer songwriter signed to Rainfeather Records for the better part of the last decade. He has developed his own unique brand of Americana music that, at once, harkens back to some of folk music's greatest lyricists, namely: Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and James Taylor, while also carving out a musical place that is uniquely his own. These influences likely come as no surprise to those hailing from the Belleville, IL area--as, prior to moving to Nashville in 2010, John spent years playing in The Still Montgomeries, a popular cover band, alongside his friends and classmates from Freeburg High School: Mason Lakatos, Hans Carpenter, Taylor Fehrenz, and Mark Benton.
As a solo artist, John released his third full length record, "Mortal Flames" in January 2020, and, like the two that came before ("Eternity's Tree" and "Second Wind"), it represented a substantial creative work brimming with an extraordinary maturity for a writer still in his twenties-- both in the complexity of his craft and the courageous transparency of his subject matter. The record received glowing acclaim and established John among the premiere songwriters in the East Nashville Americana scene where he plays regularly. He has also been invited to play at Loretta Lynn's Ranch on more than one occasion and, prior to Covid, signed a booking deal with an agency in the Netherlands which sought to book him for a European tour.
That being said, no matter how the world turns, Dennis has persevered and made a name for himself by never shying away from revealing his own scars, such as the tragic death of his girlfriend in 2010, his subsequent near fatal struggle with alcoholism, and his road to recovery, Dennis creates a deep human connection with his music and has an uncanny ability to provide an incredible testimony of hope and redemption that can only come from those that have found their way out of life's most tragic and consuming darknesses. His work has been acclaimed by American Songwriter Magazine, The Alternate Root, and many others. For an artist who seems to run so deep, and whose authenticity plants him so firmly on the ground, the sky seems to be the limit for John Dennis--especially as he now returns to playing live again and is planning to return to the studio to begin work on his fourth full length album.

The Young Fables Return to the Venue!!

The Young Fables Return to the Venue!!

Jun 21, 7:00pm

VENUE on Main

The Young Fables create music with classic storytelling weaved into traditional country roots music with pop sensibilities. East Tennessee (Maryville) natives, Laurel Wright and Wes Lunsford are influenced by timeless treasures like Patsy Cline, Bonnie Raitt, Glen Campbell and Chet Atkins. The duo’s unique sound has resonated with audiences around the globe as live performances have transformed into stages from which The Young Fables (TYF) discuss themes and topics typically saved for the therapy couch. Band manager Patryk Larney admits, ”Witnessing The Young Fables is like watching a tennis match of talent; her voice, his guitar work. ” Larney is not the first to notice the pair’s skillset. The sultry toned vocalist’s first break came when she won the Texaco Country Showdown at 16 years of age - the grand prize awarded her $100K and a performance on the prestigious Ryman Auditorium stage. Wright used the experience as a springboard to expand booking throughout east Tennessee and it wasn’t long before she caught the eye of Gretsch endorsed guitarist Wes Lunsford. The two discovered an instant connection and The Young Fables were born.

Wright and Lunsford joined forces with Music City’s Hope Tree Entertainment and the couple dropped their debut album Two in 2017, followed by Old Songs (a collaboration with GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Mitch Dane) in 2019. Their sound - a whimsical, distinguishable classic country-meets-Americana blend - was praised by iconic artists and taste-makers alike, with Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta calling Wright’s vocals “flawless,” and nine-time GRAMMY® Award winning artist Sheryl Crow tweeting, “Laurel’s as good as any country singer out there!” Their releases opened the door for a Rolling Stone “10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week” nod, direct support for artists like Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Lauren Alaina, Rascal Flatts and Josh Turner, and an invitation from multi-platinum songstress Shania Twain to take part in the CBS showcase celebration Real Country. “Wes is a perfect partner for Laurel’s voice. I fell in love with these guys as a genuine, authentic talent and sound,” mused Twain, and Travis Tritt added, “Our industry needs (TYF) right now!”

Now, The Young Fables have released their third record Pages (September 2022) and are gearing up for the rental release of their feature documentary 'The Fable of a Song', chronicling a remarkable series of events that rocked TYF in 2018. The story of the tragedies the band underwent have delivered a notable platform from which the duo speaks to a global audience about depression, loss and resilience. The film, produced by Patryk Larney, has already captured multiple awards, including the 2021 Nashville Film Festival Audience Choice Award. “We didn’t set out to write an album - we just starting writing as a means of release and it happened to resonate with people everywhere,” Wright reveals. “We feel fortunate to have a space to share our music and are so grateful that our story seems to be helping others with their healing. That’s a reward unlike any other.”
