Justin Wade Tam

Justin Wade Tam (lead singer of Humming House) is a singer-songwriter based in Nashville, TN, whose narrative lyrics bring listeners into a sonic landscape at once hopeful and calming. Tam has created his first solo EP titled A Place To Land. The introspective, four song collection seeks to find and define a sense of place. Its elegantly sparse production and simple organic instrumentation provides the perfect mix for Tam’s songwriting to shine. While these are the first songs Tam has released under his own name, he has been writing and touring with the folk-rock ensemble Humming House for eight years. His songs have been featured on television networks that include Starz, The CW, ABC, CMT, and independent documentary films. Performing nearly 100 dates annually with Humming House, Tam has been direct support for well know acts such as Kacey Musgraves, Emmylou Harris, and Drew Holcomb. He has also performed internationally in the Caribbean and Central Asia.

Angel Snow

Building a repertoire as an in-demand songwriter and acclaimed independent artist, Angel’s road twisted and turned to get to this point. The Nashville songstress wrote three songs on GRAMMY® Award winner Alison Krauss’s 2011 offering Paper Airplane. Nashville’s Music Row crowned her, “Nashville’s next stealth pop weapon.” Her 2012 self-titled debut spawned “These Days,” which notched 6 million-plus Spotify streams and earned acclaim from American Songwriter. After touring the globe, she desired to expand and evolve her style beyond traditional Americana and folk.

“I never felt like what I was doing really represented who I am and the message I was trying to get across, ” she admits.  “I wanted an otherworldly and dramatic sound.”

Enter producer Lee Groves [Goldfrapp, Depeche Mode]. In December 2014, Angel began making regular trips to New York in order to cut what would become Magnetic. Magnetic, earned widespread acclaim. American Songwriter went so far as to describe it as “superb.” Her hypnotic delivery and cinematic lyrics entwined with Lee’s immersive and airy production, conjuring a spellbinding style. .

“When people hear my music, I want them to feel understood and like somebody has been there.  I want us to be able to sit in the dark with each other and share our stories.”
