An Evening with Eric Erdman & Carrie Welling
March 24th, 2023
Singer - Songwriters
Eric Erdman is a guitar slinging troubadour. His lyrics paint stories that are introspective and deep, quirky but palatable. His songs have fresh hooks that somehow draw listeners in like old friends. Eric has penned the theme song for “Drag Race High” , released 9 studio albums and 7 live albums. He is the 13X (2010-2022) Lagniappe Awards Solo Musician of the Year, 2021 Southland Music Line Musician of the Year, 2021 and 2022 TRMA Songwriter of the year and co-wrote the 2021 TRMA Song of the Year , “The Wave”, and his current album “Enough” hit the TOP 20 on the iTunes Country album chart.
No stranger to change or the exploration that comes with it, Carrie Welling has been navigating life’s twists, turns, demons, and discoveries from a young age. A self-described ‘military brat’, Welling’s struggle to feel rooted in any one place carved a unharmonious path of heartbreak, doubt, and insecurity that defined her 20s and early 30s… a journey that lead to her soul-defining rebirth as an international touring artist with a place to call home in Nashville, TN.
Her bold, sultry voice, reminiscent of Sheryl Crow’s grit, Natalie Maines’ twang, and Stevie Nicks’ heart, is upstaged only by the genuine love and connection this natural performer has with her fans both on and off stage. But embracing confidence has not always been easy for this singer-songwriter, who speaks candidly about her battle to be good to herself, and to quiet the inner voice nagging her to be “perfect”. Melodies rich in folksy, Americana roots, paired with empowering, honest lyrics are stunningly showcased in Welling’s full length album High Heels and Heavy Things. Created in a home studio in Nashville with purely organic instruments, this raw and vulnerable record was produced by Eric Holljes (Delta Rae) and features songs co-written by the talented likes of Holljes, Mary Bragg, Alex Wong, and Matt Zavala.
An Evening with Mick Fury
Wednesday April 12th, 2023
Singer - Songwriter
The last few years have been a tornado of crazy across the musical landscape, but through it all East Nashville artist and composer Mick Fury has kept his head down creating tunes. In 2022 an opportunity arose for Mick to become the Composer for a Mel Gibson/Cole Hauser (Yellowstone) movie called PANAMA. Mick found himself in the unique position of being featured as an Artist on the soundtrack, as well as the composer of a $10 million budget film destined for theaters. He shot to work.
Mick leaned on his previous experience: regularly placing songs in the Young and the Restless, as well as the Underworld movie franchise. He’d spent the past 10 years on the road, touring the East Coast and opening for acts like Bret Michaels, Brothers Osborne, Bush, the Stone Temple Pilots and a ton more honing his craft. His performances also gained Mick slots at CMA Fest, Americana Fest, and Key West Songwriter Fest. With plentiful references to pull from, fired up his studio and began to compose.
Six months later Panama hit theaters and the press was abuzz about both the lead actors and to see what Mick has come up with. You can find Mick Fury’s work on Panama on iTunes and Amazon Prime, and catch him on the road this Summer!
An Evening with Aaron Scherz
September 9th, 2023
Singer - Songwriter
IT ALL STARTED WITH A LITTLE RUM...
...and a mom who raised him on good music. Jimmy Buffett, John Denver, James Taylor and others.
Aaron always knew he was going to do something "different". But he couldn't have imagined that "different" would involve tropical islands, sail boats, catamarans, Parrotheads, Meeting Of The Minds, Coral Reefers, and a multi-platinum Songwriting career!
His music covers a wide range of topics and has taken him all over the world. But most special to him are his songs about the laid-back lifestyle best enjoyed in a hammock underneath a palm tree with a rum in hand.
Whether you hear music on Radio Margaritaville, on stage with John Frinzi and the Coral Reefers at MOTM, or in some Key West hideaway, his music is sure to take you away to that "one particular harbor" and get you in an island state of mind.

Cory Young 12-14-2022
It’s often said that songwriting comes from life experience and Cory’s music is the perfect example. Growing up between the white sandy beaches of Oahu and the dirt roads of rural Carleton Michigan, he was fortunate enough to experience a childhood full of variety and culture.
This upbringing along with nearly a decade in the Nashville music scene has had a huge impact on the content and sound of his music.
But it was a chance vacation, and maybe too many Chesney songs that led him to sell everything, leave Nashville, and buy a sailboat, spending the next 5 years sailing the Florida Keys, Bahamas, Tortuga’s, and Caribbean with his family.
Nominated for 6 - 2018 TRMA awards and winner of the Trop Rock Music Association’s Album of the Year “SeaHabilitation”, as well as the Horizon Award.
He was named the the 2018 TropRockin Magazine’s People’s Choice “Breakthrough Artist” and his single “All She Does is Beach” was named as the most requested song of the year (2018) by RadioTropRock.
With music inspired by Kenny Chesney, Jack Johnson and Jimmy Buffett, and by many of his own adventures and life, you’ll find music for pirates, beach bums and Parrotheads alike.
Cory and his beautiful wife Jessica now reside back in the Florida Keys where most of his inspiration came from.
You can find him almost nightly in and around Marathon, FL where he now plays regularly for those vacationing that have the very same dream Cory once had, …. living where “Life Looks Best!”
