Stelle Amor,
The TVD First Date

“I was born in Kansas and raised in Kentucky. The Bible Belt tried to tame me but my rebel heart always had big dreams. I’ve always been a song bird but didn’t really start singing on stages until I was 18. It all started with improv at a blues bar, but I eventually got a band out of it and started playing clubs in Louisville. Getting to Nashville had always been my goal; and as soon as I could, I made it to music city. My big leap brought me to my current team and band who helped create this first EP.”

“I didn’t really get into vinyl until I moved to Nashville. There wasn’t a lot of music culture where I came from so it took me leaving to discover what I had been missing. My producer and better half, Dave Yarema, has an epic record collection and he really introduced me to a new world. Some of my favorites to spin are Jimi Hendrix Hear My Music record—a collection of his old instrumentals; St. Paul and the Broken Bones—got their latest release on vinyl when we went to their show at the Basement East. I also recently picked up Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band Express Yourself from Fond Object record store in East Nashville and it’s my new favorite.

I’m a total A.D.D. millennial and my music taste is very diverse. It just depends on how I’m feeling or the situation. Some of my favorite artists and inspirations are: Jimi Hendrix, Amy Winehouse, Jack Johnson, Tom Waits, Lana Del Rey, Led Zeppelin, J. Cole, Cage The Elephant, Bob Marley, Louie Armstrong, Drake, Broken Bells, Sharon Jones, Jack White, Nina Simone, Janis Joplin, Johnny Cash, Portishead, Pink Floyd, Pretty Lights, and the Dixie Chicks.

One of the first big things I did in Nashville is record in Jack White’s Blue Room on Record Store Day in 2015. I recorded my original song ” Blue Dream Haze” live to vinyl—one take, one mic, no edits. And I got my very own vinyl pressing minutes after we were done; it was a magical experience. I really appreciate what Jack White and Third Man Records have done for vinyl and the Nashville music culture.

His record store is full of goods, and I made sure to pick up a copy of his “acoustic recordings” when it came out and it’s another gem in the collection.

We recently recorded live to tape at MTSU and are waiting to get that back but I am so excited to share. I think the sound element that tape creates is perfect for our raw soulful vibe…and we’re considering those recordings for our first vinyl release.”
