Floating Collective

Bringing together generations and decades of musical experience, Floating Collective was born with members Mick Utley, Brendan Mayer and Erin McAnally at the helm. By making it a collective, the idea is that others can collaborate and come and go like floats in the ocean. All three children of members of the Coral Reefer Band, Floating Collective is a testament to the bond of the creative and familial connections of a band of musicians who have been inextricably linked for decades. 

On the Run, the first single from the collective embodies a need for escape in a time when so many are wishing they could travel. It strings together various stories from the lives of its authors and highlights seamlessly blended harmonies in a Laurel Canyon-inspired sound.

Taylor Goyette

A Florida native, Taylor Goyette’s music roots run deep, he comes from a music family. His dad, Grandfather and all five of his fathers siblings were vocally and musically gifted. Taylor grew up with Monthly gatherings planned by his mother and grandmother that were centered around music. To say Goyette had a natural born talent for writing, performing and singing is an understatement, it was in his DNA. At 14 he wrote his first song on guitar playing the three chords his dad taught him. In 2014 he made the move to Nashville to make use of the songwriting talent he had been fostering since he was a young boy. Once there, Goyette started writing songs with eclectic blends of genres best described as “ A little bit old school country, a little bit rock and roll and a little bit drunk on the beach”. Taylors ability to combine both nostalgia and mainstream to lyrics and melodies is the sum of musical influences that include Eric Church, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash and Hank Williams Sr.

“I still don’t know if we find purpose or create purpose. I’ve gone back and forth between the two notions since I embarked on this journey.” ~ Taylor Goyette

Being an entertainer comes natural to Taylor Goyette, he brings electricity to a room with his energetic stage presence and leaves crowds wanting for more with his ability to capture a room with his powerful vocals. Taylor’s versatile palette will leave you somewhere between reminiscing and dancing like nobody’s watching.

“The journey of life is the ultimate mirror of ourselves. Who we were, who we are, and who we will be.” ~ Taylor Goyette

Taylor Goyette’s sound has been compared to the likes of Eric Church, Jack Johnson, Steve Earle, Bradley James Nowell and Bob Seger. Taylor had the opportunity to work on his debut single with Emmy Award winning songwriter and producer Trey Bruce. Goyette is currently working on his sophomore project and is touring regionally.

Warren Garrett

Some artists create an identity for themselves when they move to Nashville, others are born with one. Being a South Carolina native, with a strong background in music, Warren Garrett certainly brings his own.

As a child, Garrett snuck a pair of CDs from his mom’s collection — Hank Williams Jr. and Stevie Ray Vaughn — and the rest is history. He cut his chops as a lead guitar player in local rock bands, while also learning the back end of production as a sound engineer for a live music venue.

After moving to Nashville, the skillful musician began focusing on the kind of artist he wanted to be, and his self-reflection continuously comes back to those first two records he stole from my mother. Pulling inspiration from car trips with his parents featuring a wide array of genres, he can always count on the versatility of his history. Now in Music City, he has found a unique and defining way of pulling his influences together to create the sound that encompasses Warren Garrett.

Matt Szlachetka

‘Young Heart, Old Soul’, the upcoming third album from roots-rock singer/songwriter Szlachetka, unfolds like the soundtrack to a cross-country road trip. Filled with heartland hooks, folk melodies, and searing electric guitar, these songs draw a line between Los Angeles — where he lived for years, soaking up the warm harmonies and jangling riffs of the city’s folk-rock icons — and his new home in Nashville, TN, the epicenter of modern-day Americana.

For the past half-decade, he’s been building his audience show-by-show, touring for more than 200 days a year.  Matt has been earning praise from outlets like ‘Rolling Stone Country’, who hailed his catalog of “road-dog roots-rockers and Americana ballads.” ‘Young Heart, Old Soul’ finds him in transit once again, writing songs about a country torn apart by politics yet united by a common spirit. Produced by Scott Underwood, the Grammy-winning co-founder of Train, and largely recorded at Nashville’s legendary Blackbird Studios, ‘Young Heart, Old Soul’ offers its own version of amplified Americana music. ‘Young Heart, Old Soul’ is also a record about home — the homes we leave behind, the homes we temporarily visit, and the homes we build with others. Maybe that’s why these 11 songs feel so grounded. After all, Szlachetka — whose self-made success includes high-profile shows alongside Brandi Carlile, Mike Campbell, and Blackberry Smoke’s Charlie Starr, and Benji Shanks; regular appearances on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio; and his own DittyTV program, ‘Vinyl Recipes’, which combines his love for music, cooking, and cocktails — isn’t running anymore. Instead, he’s finally arrived.

Cara Louise

Cara Louise, born Cara Louise Wegener, is a singer-songwriter from St. Louis, MO, now residing in Nashville, TN.  Louise’s unique and soulful sound comes from her powerful and emotive vocal chops. The artist’s extensive range, coupled with inspired melodies and sincere, relatable lyricism, set her aside as a true force of nature. Originally fronting Cara Louise Band from 2013-2018 Cara cut her teeth playing open mic nights, dive bars, and honky-tonks regionally around St. Louis City. During that time, Cara released two EP’s and an LP via Gaslight Records, each thoroughly inspired by golden country and the 70’s Nashville sound. In 2019, Cara dropped the “Band” from her name, and released a new EP, “Fragile Heart”, produced by David Beeman at Native Sound Studios, and released via Soul Step Records. “Fragile Heart” redefined the artist’s sound and built a strong foundation where her signature meld of indie-rock, folk, and Americana could begin to coalesce.

Cara has toured her music nationally, and has opened for notable acts such as Margo Price, Nikki Lane, James McMurtry, Hayes Carll, and more. Cara has played Twangfest, Open Highway Music Festival, Musician’s Corner and more. Cara will embark on a release tour in Fall of 2022, in support of her latest LP “Wholesome Dread”, show dates and times TBA. Recording and touring band members include Scotti Iman, PJ Schreiner, Simon Chervitz, Dylan Lancaster, Nigel Solomon, and Buddy Schumaker; as well as husband, frequent collaborator, and co-writer, Adam Donald. Cara’s music would pair well with fans of Sharon Van Etten, Stevie Nicks, Broken Social Scene, and Brandi Carlile. Her latest single “Empty Me” is available now everywhere music is streamed, with more singles to be released along the way. “Wholesome Dread” will release via Soul Step Records Sep. 30th, 2022.
