HOMETOWN & HIGHWAYS TOUR featuring Luke Pell and Logan Mize with special guest 17 Memphis will play the The Belmont, Austin on April 27th, 2018.
Luke Pell is one of Country Music’s fastest rising artists. Playing close to one hundred shows each year across the country Luke is quickly growing a fan base in every major market. Luke has native Texas roots with a Nashville sound that creates a unique blend and Luke’s signature sound. As a former West Point graduate and US Army Captain (which took him across the world as far as Afghanistan) Luke has seen his share of life experience. Luke has called Nashville home for the past four years signing a publishing deal with Peermusic in 2016 and spends his time off the road in the writing room. Following the success of his two single releases in 2017, Pell just released his debut EP, which topped the ITunes country chart and has featured tracks in the major Spotify playlists New Boots & Wild Country.
Logan Mize is an accomplished country singer/songwriter from Clearwater, Kansas, who has deep musical roots to his family tree. His great uncle was Billy Mize, largely known for crafting and evolving the legendary Bakersfield sound, which included musical pioneers Merle Haggard and Buck Owens. In 2010, several years after moving to Nashville, Logan signed a publishing/record deal with Big Yellow Dog Music and a booking deal with a major agency. He spent the next seven years playing seemingly every venue in every town across the U.S. and winning over fans every stop along the way. In 2016, Mize made waves when he booked a solo acoustic tour via social media and traveled more than 20 thousand miles in less than two months in a 1989 Chevy station wagon named “Glenn” running his own sound and lighting performing 2- and 3-hour acoustic shows for fans across the country. Mize is excited for this new chapter and sharing his new, much-anticipated independent release Come Back Road with his expansive fanbase. The album debuted at Number 2 on iTunes Country Chart and Top 20 on iTunes All-Genre Chart.
Channeling the mid-point between classic country, future pop, and modern rap production, country music’s newest duo 17 Memphis brings their own unique sound to the crossover genre game with one specific goal: to break rules. With sounds similar to peers Sam Hunt and Florida Georgia Line, 17 Memphis brings a fresh aesthetic to country music that fans have yet to experience listening to mainstream country radio.
Felix Snow and Chelsea Todd, the voices behind 17 Memphis, maybe new to Nashville but neither is new to the music scene. Both consider the group a natural progression from their pop collaborations. Snow, originally from Connecticut, is an award-winning platinum producer who grew up influenced by The Grateful Dead and The Beach Boys. His most recent work includes the multi-platinum single “Gold” by Kiiara, and has also written and produced for Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert, and Katy Perry. Todd, a small-town girl from Texas, grew up singing Patsy Cline but later transformed her sound while creating her pop project, TYSM, with his label EFFESS Records.
17 Memphis has released four songs off their project so far; one of their most recent, “Honey Jack”, has received more than 450K streams on Spotify. “Leather and Levi’s” was co-written by Nashville alum and member of country rock-group Cadillac Three, Neil Mason. The duo’s most recent releases, “Lonely Off These Lips” and “Backseat Lovin” both feature a sound described by Billboard Magazine as “if Lady Antebellum set up shop in an Atlanta rap studio for a week.”
