Artist Breakdown: TuneCore Live Atlanta @ Music Room

Hot off the heels of a tremendously successful TuneCore Live at Acme Feed & Seed in Nashville, we’re riding high on the love from our Southern fans and artists. For the first time since we brought it down to A3C Fest in October, TuneCore Live is hitting the Music Room in Atlanta on March 2nd, 2016 – which, incidentally, is also Georgia Music Day!

“Three TuneCore Artists?” you may be asking. Nope, try EIGHT! It’s gonna be a long night of amazing independent hip hop and R&B, and we’re psyched to be partnering with our friends at A3C FestivalCeleBuzz and Mirrored Media to give these artists the opportunity to showcase their skills, share the stage with fellow locals, and network with their TuneCore family and others in the Atlanta scene.

So come on out and get to know us! We’ll be hanging at 8pm, the event is free and 21+. Learn more here, and read about the artists performing below.

EarthGang

Formed by MCs Johnny Venus and Doctur Dot while in high school in 2007, EarthGang drew on influences both in and outside of hip hop to craft a southern sound that lends itself to Pharcyde comparisons. On top of touring with acts like Mac Miller and Ab-Soul, the duo have released two EPs and three full-length albums, their most recent being November 2015’s Strays With Rabies.

Yonas

Born and raised in New York City, Yonas got his start in music when he began studying classical violin at a young age. When he was ready to put it down, he focused his efforts on hip hop, releasing his debut mixtape The New Golden Era in 2010 (via TuneCore!). Since then, he went on to drive over 6 million views of his “Pumped Up Kicks” remix on YouTube, climb the iTunes charts with singles and albums, and share the stage with artists such as Macklemore and Wale.

Buggs Tha Rocka
Buggs Tha Rocka

Based in Cincinnati where he grew up, Buggs Tha Rocka trades in the gangsta rap appeal for amusing and conscious rhymes placed nicely over eclectic beats. One-half of the duo Space Invadaz and founder of hip hop-jazz fusion group Gold Shoes, Buggs’ ability to innovate and spit garnered the attention of Talib Kweli, who invited the MC to join him on tour.

India Shawn

LA-born and raised India Shawn dropped her debut release, Origins, back in 2012, and went on to be featured on Solange Knowles’ “Saint Heron” compilation. On top of working with artists like Chris Brown, El Debarge, Keri Hilson, and Monica, India released her pop-fused R&B EP Origins, a collaboration with James Fauntleroy, in 2015. Read an interview that we featured on the TuneCore Blog.

Goldyard

A high-energy hip hop trio, Atlanta-based Goldyard consists of A.T, In-Doe and Producer Flick James. In the spring of 2015, they released F**k Culture 2, the follow-up to their 2014 EP of the same title. Fans can expect a third installment in the F**k Culture series this year. Goldyard has shared the stage with current hip hop stars and has a reputation for active, intense live performances.

Mighty High Coup

Consisting of Mr. SOS, Ricky Raw, and A-Bomb – Mighty High Coup got together through performing and partying in Atlanta’s hip hop scene and have been distributing music through TuneCore since their debut, To The Moon in 2010. After that release, their track “808” received the remix treatment from legendary dubstep producer Bassnectar – which opened up doors into the EDM/house music/rave world.

Natasha Mosley
Natasha-Mosley

ATL-born and raised, Natasha Mosley is a rising R&B artist who has been featured on tracks with Lil Wayne, Jeremih, YG, and Tyga. Releasing her debut full length, Rose Hall, in May of last year, her single “Anything” (stream below) has racked up over 7 million plays on Soundcloud and 2 million streams on YouTube!

Nick Grant

Atlanta-based up-and-comer Nick Grant grew up in a town of only 5,000 in South Carolina, and it’s there that he learned how to stand out. When he discovered his abilities to rhyme, it consumed him, and eventually caught the attention of the right hip hop figures. Taking notes from the legends like Big Daddy Kane and Rakim, Grant dropped his latest mix tape, 88, in early 2016.
