The Government Center
OTNES (formerly Emily Blue) makes genre-bending pop in Nashville, TN. With a mix of 1980s synthscapes and
modern pop, OTNES explores both vulnerability and the extremity of emotion in their music. They are a proud
member of the nonbinary and queer community and believe music should be used to celebrate all identities.
OTNES's work has been featured in VICE, Hulu's Maggie, Love Island 2022, and their most recent release Go
the Distance with Disney's Reimagine Tomorrow. Originally from Chicago, they frequented venues like Lincoln
Hall, Sleeping Village, and have multiple U.S. tours under their belt. They have also been a featured performer
at Disney’s D23 Expo.
Producer/DJ Ron Mist realized the deep joy that comes from dance in his college years, spectating in awe at the school's conservatory's dance shows and listening to artists like Disclosure and Basement Jaxx on his commutes into the city. In the years since, he's produced and released a 13-track dance album and has been DJing around the city and beyond almost every weekend. Mist loves the simplicity and beauty of classic 4-on-the-floor house and techno, and it's in this style he finds his home. His goal in every set is to create a world in which everyone in attendance can get lost, losing the pressures of the day and silencing the voice running in their head, making room for connection with their body, the music, and the atmosphere around them.
Songs Of Llore
Indie rock daydreamers, Songs of Llore(formerly LLORE), creates a lush sonic dreamscape for listeners to explore. Ethereal, yet intimate vocals weave through distorted guitars and vibey synth pads to transport listeners to other worlds. The band employs a combination of real and synthetic instruments and sounds, transcending the limits of the physical world while staying grounded on earth. Similar artists are: Mitski, Wet Leg, Cocteau Twins.
Songs of Llore is the project of Amanda Collins, whose songs speak of healing, nature, and connecting with our truest self. She is inspired by daydreams and using music as a portal to enter other worlds. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Songs of Llore is now based in Nashville, TN.
