Now entering its fifth year, the goal of the latest Nashville Indie Spotlight (NIS) compilation has stayed true to the original, bringing a community of artists together to highlight the incredible talent that Music City has to offer. The project also provides an outlet for discovery. This year's NIS brings together 22 artists spanning Americana, Singer-Songwriter, Rock, Pop, Country, Electronic, and Ambient Instrumental.
"The first album in 2012 was inspired by all of the great artists I was fortunate enough to work with and my desire to find a platform to tell more people," remarks the album's curator, Shawn Fowler of Tone Tree Music. "Though the musical landscape has changed over the past few years, the mission of this project has stayed the same. To share our diverse musical community with the rest of the world."
