New Music | White Violet - Autumn Grove


[I]f there is one thing the we’ve all come to expect from Athens, GA its that there will always be a steady stream of good bands at the ready for our musical enjoyment. Multitalented, Athens-native Nate Nelson seems to know this expectation all to well. He’s been creating, producing, and engineering music since his teenage years, slowly and surely making a name for himself outside the sleepy little college town. Nelson has joined many a friend’s bands on the road as a touring musician and has even shared the stage with Music Savage favorite Cary Ann Hearst (Shovels & Rope). In 2012 the singer-songwriter formed the band White Violet after recording a bunch of songs solo and realizing the sound he was looking for could only be achieved with a band full of equally talented friends.

The bouncy new single, “Autumn Grove,” is the first song from White Violet since the release of their debut album, Hiding, Mingling, last August. It explores the suffocating elements of small-town life, which I’m sure we all feel now and again. The song has an unmistakable 60’s, doo-wap, rock n’ roll feel to it and would be a perfect addition to that summer road-trippin’ soundtrack we are all thinking about putting together right about now. Check out your new favorite song above and imagine yourself on the beach rather than your office.
