Vacation Manor
Nashville-based indie rock/pop outfit Vacation Manor’s story might sound like something out of a feel-good collegiate flick, but it’s pure fact. Singer and guitarist Nathan Towles met Cole Young (drums), Dane Spearman (bass), and Carson Cody (keys) at a music festival in the band’s birthplace of Lynchburg, Virginia, while looking for musicians to join him at his college’s battle of the bands in Washington, D.C.

After winning the showcase with only one practice the night before, the group has not only continued playing together but has since coalesced into an integrated family in which each member brings something to the group even beyond musical talent and cohesion, further fueling the band’s trajectory.

Since releasing their first EP, Girl, Say, in 2016 and the follow-up single, “Fading,” in 2017, Vacation Manor has accrued more than 5 million Spotify streams and performed their unique brand of warm, bright, heartfelt musings around the Midwest and East Coast, including opening for acts such as The Lone Bellow, Dawes, Colony House, Dave Barnes, Magic Man, and more. It’s also possible you’ve heard some of the group’s songs in Starbucks, Gap, and Banana Republic.

The band’s latest album, Everything I Can’t Say Out Loud (releasing September 2018), was recorded live to 2-inch tape, capturing the four-piece’s imaginative and tight-knit feel, by producer/engineer Charlie Stavish (Ryan Adams, Foster the People, Imagine Dragons) in Joshua Tree, California.

Vacation Manor’s charming, chiming tunes include summery anthems and nostalgic autumnal afternoon vibes that will work on you year round — honest and reflective songs of romantic hopefulness, longing, loss, and rebirth — all told with earnest vocals, precise-yet-sparkling guitar hooks, soulful synth-scapes, dance-worthy drum and bass rhythms, and choruses both catchy and thoughtful.

Briston Maroney says a lot with a little. With only a homemade EP and a few singles to his name, Briston has identified himself as a voice for his class of outsiders. His nomadic past is stitched together in songs; in one moment, his guitar tone is drenched in the Florida humidity, and on the next, his harmonies echo through the Laurel Canyon. His passion is always heart-on-sleeve but never off the rails, and on songs like “Freakin’ Out On the Interstate”, he knows how to let the music drive the conversation. With a new EP coming and tour to follow, Nashville is lucky to have him until his next home calls.
