There’s a new band in town, and when you hear their name along with Ingrid Michaelson, Jake Bugg, Sugar & The Hi-Lows, The Lone Bellow, and LP, you’re probably just reading the lineup for this year’s closing day of Live On The Green. PHIN recently won the opportunity to take the opening set at 1:45pm on the last day of the now dubbed music festival. This year marks the 6th consecutive year the concert series will be taking place downtown in the heart of Downtown Nashville, right in front of the city’s historic Metropolitan Courthouse. The series usually plays Thursday nights for six weeks in late summer/early fall, but this year, they have decided to do things a bit differently. The 2014 lineup consists of four back-to-back weeks, and the last week runs for three nights right into the weekend. The opening slot of the closing day of Live On The Green was part of the grand prize for winning Lightning 100′s Music City Mayhem contest. The song that got them there was “Those Killers,” previously released on PHIN’s debut EP, Those Killers.
The EP was produced by Grayson Proctor of Vinyl Thief and consists of 6 indie rock songs led by founder and singer-songwriter Toby Haydel. Toby started the band in 2013 with the goal of capturing a vibe from some of their influences such as MGMT, Local Natives, and Cold War Kids. After a huge year of progress, PHIN is ready to take on this whirlwind of an industry, and Music City is properly set to be their home base. They’ve crafted a sound, captured an audience, and are seemingly inspired to be persistent in growth and significance. Stay tuned for more shows and music by following the band on Facebook.
