A self-made singer/songwriter, Matt Wertz spent years creating soulful, feel-good pop music on his own terms. Nashville — a city that doubled as his muse and adopted hometown — always played a big role in that creation process. It was the place where Wertz wrote his songs, the place he recorded his albums, the place he'd return after touring the country with songwriters like Jason Mraz, Parachute, Gavin DeGraw, Ben Rector and Dave Barnes.

Something changed after 2014's Heatwave, a record that shone a neon light on Wertz's appreciation for '80s pop music. Wertz realized he'd grown perhaps a bit too comfortable in Nashville, where he'd been making music for more than a decade. Looking to write an album that tackled contemporary pop music from a different angle — literally — he headed to Los Angeles, where he spent several months writing songs for his ninth album, Gun Shy. Fueled by infectious, 90’s-inspired beats, lush textures, and soaring air-tight pop melodies, Gun Shy fires twin barrels of modern pop and synthesized R&B, finding new life in old-school influences.


Louisiana-born Andy Davis broke onto the scene in 2004 with a charming, acoustic debut called “Thinks of Her,” that quickly spread among college campuses nationwide.

Based in Nashville then, Davis starting touring full-time, sharing the stage with artists such as Jakob Dylan, Colbie Caillat, Marc Broussard, needtobreathe, Dave Barnes and more.

Since then, Davis has released seven studio projects, including two produced by Mitchell Froom (Sheryl Crow, Crowded House, Randy Newman), one of which was made possible by a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $40,000 in 30 days.

Davis was also a founding member of Nashville’s “Ten Out of Tenn” — a critically-acclaimed collective of singer/songwriters (including Katie Herzig, Griffin House, Andrew Belle, K.S. Rhoads, etc) who joined forces in super-band fashion for a collaborative tour, documented in the award-winning PBS film, “Any Day Now,” and going on to perform at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

In 2020, Davis relocated to Austin, TX, where he has been writing towards his next project.

A multi-instrumentalist with old-school charm and a pulse for the often irregular heartbeat of human relationships, Andy Davis continues to engage longtime fans and win new ones.
