North of Nashville and Joe Gallant
What started as a side project of Jay Basiner and Andrew Martelle's full time band This Way, became so popular so quickly that the two decided to give into the North of Nashville muse completely and have since toured the country from Burlington to Houston, have performed with headliners from Dierks Bentley to Lake Street Dive and have attracted rave reviews from their debut self-titled record by publications including The Boston Globeand No Depression.
"Country music for people who love and hate country music"
Pursuing their passion for honky-tonk, the Highwaymen and pure pop music, North of Nashville "combines shades of country, bluegrass, honky-tonk and rock into a seamless fusion of feeling and melody". (Alan Cackett, Mavrick)
"There's Basiner's engagingly twangy vocals, there's excellent fiddle work from Martelle, and there's an honest, sincere approach to writing country songs, which sets them apart from the legions of mainstream country artists". (Bangor Daily News)
Joe Gallant and the Transit is a 4 piece alt-country act based out of Portland, ME featuring "searing guitars" (Portland Phoenix) "gruff-but-melodic vocals" (Culture Shock) and a monster rhythm section. A style that has drawn comparison to Eric Church and Ryan Adams, JG&T take elements of country, blues and rock with a north woods twist to create a live show with something for everyone.
