We at Cause A Scene are beyond pumped to present Katie Herzig as she celebrates the official release of her brand new record Walk Through Walls only two weeks from today, on April 25th at Mercy Lounge. Walk Through Walls, released earlier this week, is the highly anticipated follow-up to Herzig’s 2011 album, The Waking Sleep. While Herzig has been writing and recording music for over a decade, the critical and commercial success of The Waking Sleep kept her busy over the last three years. Along with a continually and rapidly growing international fan base and multiple tours, the bar was set very high when she began recording the material that would be stitched together to produce Walk Through Walls, but the result is nothing short of impressive and utterly satisfying. With a dream-like quality that pulses through all 12 tracks like a racing heart pumping blood to various extremities, ‘Walls’ retains the indie pop spirit and catchy melodies that has become signature of Herzig. If that isn’t enough, she has also toured with the likes of Ingrid Michaelson, Brandi Carlile, The Fray and Sarah Bareilles, and has multiple festivals through the years, yielding one badass resume.

Also playing on April 25th will be Amy Stroup, whom we also had the immense honor of presenting the release show for her new album, Tunnels, at Mercy Lounge less than two months ago. A strong reaction from Tunnels and the recognition of being named a Garrison Keilor’s Prairie Home Companion “Top 20 Songwriter Under 30” solidify Stroup as the perfect compliment to Herzig, culminating in a rare duo of powerhouse indie pop songstresses that are sure knock the doors off the Mercy.

Britpop-rock duo Lovers Electric will be opening up the show. Comprised of Eden Boucher and David Turley, this London based band has garnered critical acclaim both across the pond as well as in the States with their debut EP, Waiting For Something to Happen, which released last year. Lovers Electric is currently putting the finishing touches on their forthcoming full-length album.

Go ahead mark your calendars for April 25th, and don’t miss out on a night that is sure to be nothing short of epic, with a lineup stacked with some of music’s most promising talent. Get your tickets early here, because this one will be packed out! GA tickets are $15; seats are $20. Show starts at 8:00 PM. Doors at 7:00 PM.

CAS October 26 - Amy Stroup

This Saturday night Cause A Scene is bringing another stellar lineup of up and coming talent to Edgehill Cafe. Fronting the evening’s set, which is sure to fill the night with clap inducing rhythms and ear-tingling melodies, is Amy Stroup. Developing her talents from a tender age, Stroup has been molding a musical identity that is only beginning to truly take shape. Born in Boston and raised in Texas, Stroup has always been drawn to music, a draw that ultimately landed her in Nashville, where she studied classical guitar and marketing at Lipscomb University.

In the years that have followed she has kept diligent focus on her work and has not let up for a second. In that time Amy has released multiple digital-only EPs, had her songs featured on more than 20 TV show and multiple TV ads, been named one of Prairie Home Companion’s “Top 20 Songwriters Under 30” and won a national Peacemaker Award. 2011 marked the national release of her full-length effort, The Other Side of Love Sessions, a compilation of new recordings of her best songs from her digital EPs. In 2012 She teamed up with singer songwriter Trent Dabbs to form Sugar & the Hi-Lows. Their self-titled album received high praise from both fans and critics and allowed Stoup to explore new territory in her vocal abilities. As of late, Amy has been hard at work in Nashville on new material, the product of which is her new single ‘Falling” that released just last month.

This evening of music will also feature sets from three other Nashville pop-folk acts. The Inlaws is a new collaborative project from Caleb and Will Chapman of the local band CALEB, and Will’s wife, Jillian Edwards. Buster is comprised of musicians Pheobe Bridgers from LA, Harrison Whitford from here in Nashville and Jackson White. The band has been touring the country between the west coast and here in the Southeast and was recently featured on the Billy Block Show this past summer. Tender Gentleman is a local band formed out of Belmont University. Formerly know as Authors, Tender Gentleman has been rapidly spreading their music and building their name throughout Nashville. The band recently played at 12th and Porter with rising folk act Judah and the Lion.

We at CAS hope you are as excited as we are to see and hear these talented acts tear it up at Edgehill Cafe, located at 1201 Villa Place this weekend. General admission tickets will be available for $10 and VIP for $25. VIP tickets include a 3-course dinner (see menu below), beverage and preferred seating. This place fills up quick, so get your tickets ahead of time here and ensure that you don’t miss out on this unique evening of entertainment in Nashville. Doors will open at 7:00 PM with music soon to follow.
