Briston Maroney

After a childhood and adolescence spent adrift - shuttling through the haze of split households in Tennessee and Florida - 21-year-old Briston Maroney's life finally comes into focus with the four songs on Indiana. Settling in Nashville, Maroney has developed a style steeped in the sweat and scrappy sounds of the city's DIY house parties, winning over fans one living room at a time.

Indiana follows the release of 2018's Carnival EP, Maroney's take on the modern coming-of-age story and his debut for Canvasback Music/Atlantic. Those songs have amassed millions of streams and opened the door to tours with Liz Cooper and Wallows. Recorded at Thunder Sound studios in rural Kentucky, Indiana meditates on the disparities between juvenile dreams and adult realities. Consequence of Sound praises his music as "vulnerable and empathetic, but balanced out with just the right amount of conviction," while Austin's KUTX says that he "sings with such contemplation, confidence, and ease that it's almost surprising to find he's only 21 years old." Briston Maroney will play Austin City Limits Festival this fall with more touring planned for later in the year.


Combining often unusual, yet emotionally resonant lyrics, distinctly raw vocals and an indie-pop sensibility, Covey is the creation of British multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Tom Freeman. Upon relocating to the US and landing in Boston for school in 2010, Covey was eventually conceived and managed to connect to listeners through Freeman’s own brand of folk-rock which drew inspiration from artists like Neutral Milk Hotel, The Smiths and Nick Drake. Covey’s upcoming album Some Cats Live, Some Cats Die was written after a series of hapless circumstances forced Freeman to leave his life in Boston behind and relocate to New York in pursuit of further success with Covey. The house outside the city in which the album was written - slightly distressing, isolated and yet strangely beautiful - has become the symbolic representation and centerpiece of the new project..

“Freeman fashions acute melodies and cathartic songwriting into reflective, soul-stirring melancholia. His earnest, strolling riffs and yearning vocals are perfect for regretful, back porch listening at dusk.” - Paste Magazine

"A truly brilliant listen for those interested in sonic journeys" - Atwood Magazine

"Acclaimed Brooklyn-based indie folk artist, Covey, is about to spring greatness onto the music world" - Heart Eyes Magazine
