From Grammy-nominated, award winning artists from Hafnarfjördur, Iceland to Templeton, CA to local artists in Nashville, TN, the ZTPR agency in partnership with Soho House Nashville brought together a collectively incredible lineup of artists for their first “A Night in Music City” showcase on January 23rd.
Rising stars in the music scene including Tommy Iceland, Lexi Sidders, Eric Van Houten joined America’s Got Talent “Golden Buzzer” standout Mandy Harvey as well as iconic artists like Gavin DeGraw and Colbie Caillat for a free two-hundred personish private gathering at the new Soho House’s “Sock Room” location in Tennessee.
Hosted by ZTPR’s Zack Teperman and Soho House’s Membership Manager Zack Grady, the event was an intimate setting in which the crowd stood still and silent for nearly three hours to hear each word being sung by the artists who stood in front of them. Profoundly deaf following an illness at the age of eighteen, singer Mandy Harvey taught the crowd in an emotional setting how to sign-language her song, and Colbie blew away the audience with her classic hit ‘Bubbly’ which was followed up by Gavin’s ‘Follow Through’ chart topper. And while all the attention was on the stage, the audience included the likes of actors Martin Kove and Shane West, with NHL player James Neal singing every word of Eric Van Houten’s latest tracks.
The unforgettable evening proves that Nashville is indeed ‘music city’, and that no matter what genre of music artists you bring together from around the world, music together can bring people of all types together too and distract us from all the outside noise in our society right now. Teperman and Grady promised the crowd at the end of the show that more nights like these will follow at Soho House in the coming months, giving more artists a chance to shine and be recognized by Soho’s high-profile members and community.
