About Cole Chaney

“Originally from Boyd County, KY, Chaney has since relocated to Lexington and is sure to be the next big thing coming out of Kentucky. At only 21 years old, Chaney’s catalog may be small, but he already boasts an absolute masterpiece of an album in which he proves wise beyond his years.

Mercy, his debut album released in 2021, is a 12-song showcase of Eastern Kentucky, blue collar anthems highlighted by Chaney’s deft lyricism and storytelling. An unknown musician prior to the album’s release, Chaney has since experienced a meteoric rise in popularity and has quickly amassed a growing and dedicated fan base, already thirsty for new music.”

About Taylor Smith

Hailing from Fayetteville, Arkansas, nestled amid the serene foothills of the Ozark Mountains, Taylor has spent the past decade touring extensively alongside his childhood friend Garrett August, co-founding the rock band Vintage Pistol. Their coast-to-coast journeys forged Taylor’s musical prowess and shaped his understanding of the craft.

From these diverse influences, Taylor Smith emerges—a raw, introspective singer-songwriter, ready to unveil a deeply personal narrative. Inspired by a myriad of artists including Jason Isbell, Bj Barham, Evan Felker, and Cody Canada, his music has transformed into a heartfelt storytelling style that delivers woeful candor.

“I’ve grown to the point of not being worried about being honest, which is refreshing,” Taylor reveals. This newfound freedom weaves into his music, capturing the hues of sobriety, the echoes of heartache, and the weight of loss with unfiltered sincerity.

This pivotal transition—from the vibrant energy of Vintage Pistol to the poignant vulnerability of a solo artist—marks a significant chapter in Taylor’s musical odyssey. His music now serves as a sanctuary, inviting listeners to join in an intimate exploration of shared emotions and the human spirit.
