Elijah Johnston, Legit Smitty, and Macho Planet

Elijah Johnston is a singer-songwriter from Athens, GA whose songs bridge the conversational songwriter fare of now and the hooky guitar based music of the past. Growing up surrounded by the wide-open sounds of classic rock radio and The Beach Boys, Johnston later discovered the sardonic lyricism of Pavement, the raw emotions of Animal Collective, and the DIY approach of a whole generation of lo-fi bedroom auteurs, finding a spot in the middle that’s both unique and rooted in a pop tradition. Johnston has shared stages with acts like Noah Gundersen, Susto, and Elf Power, establishing a name as a skilled songwriter with a potent live show to match. 

Legit Smitty is the solo project of South Carolina native Jake Smith. Smitty shares his heart in hopes that others will feel more at home in their own skin. Smitty shares his truth through a lens of distortion and DIY spirit. In the past, he has been highly regarded for his “crunchy” Lo-fi productions and his higher quality full band recordings. His new EP “New House, Same Neighborhood” houses both. The EP tells stories of the struggle to hold on to faith and those we love, and it is out now everywhere. Jake is currently residing in Nashville, TN making records with friends, and family and growing in his Nashville Community. For fans of: Third Eye Blind, Beck, Wilco

Nashville alternative/indie project Macho Planet features the songs of Austin Mathis, produced and performed along with bandmates Alex Mathis and Bynum. With literary and often unorthodox lyrics, Austin’s songs are raw and beautiful, loving and grim, telling stories about and for us sensitive animals bearing the weight of a macho world.
