With the release of their debut EP, Future Thieves, comprised of Elliot Collett (vocals and rhythm guitar), Gianni Gibson (drums), Nick Goss (bass), and Austin McCool (lead guitar), are one of Nashville's most exciting emerging acts.

The American rock band, formed in the fall of 2013, can trace their beginnings to Collett's previous endeavors playing an Americana/blues style focused around his singer/songwriter mentality. After moving to Nashville, Collett teamed up with McCool and Goss to form a sound influenced by classic and big indie rock. Gibson then joined the four and meshed immediately as the group began rehearsing and writing. Collett, a coal miner's son from the hills of Kentucky, got his start running live sound for numerous artists and traveling to play shows in and around Nashville.

Before moving to Tennessee, Elliot graduated with an audio engineering degree in Lexington, KY. McCool and Goss both hail from southern Indiana, dating back to the 6th grade together and continuing through college at Purdue University. Each grew up playing the guitar after stealing tablature books and bouncing ideas off of friends down the street. After graduating college the two moved to Nashville to pursue music. For Gianni, growing up in Los Angeles offered the perfect blend of culture and music for Gibson to focus on his skills as a percussionist. Having both parents involved in the music industry, he realized his passion for music at a very young age.

The band's instrumentation is written collectively, while Collett spreads his melodies and storytelling across the tracks. Future Thieves brings a big indie rock/americana sound with a powerful rhythm section, fresh guitar melodies, and singer/songwriter style vocals. Future Thieves released their debut EP in 2014, and are currently recording the follow-­up full-­length. All tracks are played, engineered, and produced by Future Thieves in their home studio Nashville Music House in Nashville, TN.
Motherfolk started as Nathan Dickerson and Bobby Paver. The two college friends had both been writing songs, and when they brought them to each other, it became apparent that the themes lined up. Because of this, the writing project known as Motherfolk began. In 2013, the duo made frequent trips to Nashville to record their debut album at Dirty Denim Studio with producer Stephen Keech. In early 2014, Jacob Bremer and Rich Miller joined the band, completing the roster needed to perform live. In February of 2014, the debut Self-titled album was released. Since then, Motherfolk has toured all across the nation and have made a name for themselves and their incredibly high-energy live performances.
