Following the 2014 release of her critically-acclaimed sophomore release, The Avenues, Lera Lynn spent 2015 in a creative whirlwind, kicking off the year with an appearance on "Late Show with David Letterman" and, months later, wrapping things up with a 39-date headlining fall tour. Along the way, she also played a role in shaping the dark direction of "True Detective"'s second season, both appearing in the popular HBO series as a barroom singer and contributing a handful of original songs to the show's soundtrack. The response was overwhelming. "True Detective"'s teaser trailer, which featured a clip of Lynn's "The Only Thing Worth Fighting For" (co-written with Rosanne Cash and T Bone Burnett), racked up more than 35 million views in a matter of months, giving Lynn the assurance that a wide audience did, indeed, exist for her brand of otherworldly music.

Her new album, Resistor, at once embraces the darker and more provocative sides of Lynn's songwriting. Moody and muscular, it pairs Lynn's voice—a warm, anchoring instrument that sweeps its way through all 10 songs—with the deep-seated rumble of baritone guitars, the atmospheric swirl of keyboards, and the gauze of her own double-tracked harmonies. Lynn and her co-producer, Joshua Grange, play nearly every instrument on the album, which was tracked during a series of spontaneous, experimental recording sessions in Nashville. While The Avenues couched Lynn's voice in layers of pedal steel and other folky instruments, Resistor takes a different approach, focusing on texture rather than twang.

Lynn gained respect early in her career with her 2011 LP release, Have You Met Lera Lynn? The collection included her song "Bobby, Baby," which won Merlefest's 2011 Chris Austin Songwriting Competition (an honor she shared with Gillian Welch and Tift Merritt) and best alternative country song at the Independent Music Awards. Lera Lynn followed up the debut album with a hair-raising cover of June Carter Cash's classic "Ring of Fire," recently heard on the hit TV show "Pretty Little Liars," backed with the original "Don't Make Me Wait." With her 2014 EP release, Lying in the Sun, Lynn illustrates her versatility even further, doing much of the playing and even engineering and producing.

She made her national TV debut on the "Late Show with David Letterman," in January, 2015 ending with David saying, "Beautiful, remember you heard it here first". In addition Lera performed on numerous radio shows across the country including NPR's "A Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Keillor as well as sessions on NPR World Café, NPR Mountain Stage, Acoustic Café, and Sirius XM's The Loft.

In 2014, Lynn self-released her sophomore album, The Avenues, which continues to receive praise and critical acclaim from many sources. The album was covered by NPR's popular "All Things Considered," and appeared in the "Top 50 Albums of the Year" from American Songwriter (ranking #14), Rolling Stone, Huffington Post and numerous other "Best Albums of the Year" lists.

If you catch Lera performing live, you'll see a natural in action. "My favorite part of this job is performing in a live setting, and seeing the potential to move people through music." Lynn's shows are intimate regardless of venue type and feature songs spanning from her earliest recordings to the most current, including some unexpected covers.

William Wild will open the show. William Wild is the moniker of 24-year-old Alternative singer-songwriter Garrett Sale. Born and raised at the foothill of the Appalachian Mountains in Knoxville, TN, Sale began to pursue music while attending The University of Tennessee. It was there that Sale worked on his first collection of recordings with Knoxville friends and fellow musicians, eventually releasing a self-titled LP under the name "William Wild" (the nickname of a local homeless man). 

Sale then embarked on a solo journey through Europe, where he wrote four of the six songs on his new EP, Steady Now. Continuing with the layered vocals, lush strings, dark tones of the debut album, Steady Now explores Sale's search for peace while wrestling with self-pity, guilt and materialism. 

Hazy guitars, dusty keys, and blurry pedal steel illuminate the recordings of weighty songs immersed in loss, fear of failure, and the worthiness of human existence. With plush nostalgic pop sensibilities, Steady Now radiates tranquility. In an atmosphere of warmth, the listener is invited to delve into psyche of kindred spirits. It is there that unfaltering refuge is found.
