Performing from their repertoire of funk, soul, and hip-hop, the Nashville-based indie musicians of The Lonely Biscuits will perform in a Moeller Nights concert with opening sets by Okey Dokey and Hannah Aldridge.
Founded by former Belmont University roommates Grady Wenrich and Sam Gidley, The Lonely Biscuits began playing college shows in 2011 (the same year the band released its debut EP Soul Food), and in 2012, the musicians won the Southeast regional title in the national College Battle of the Bands. That accolade led to The Lonely Biscuits' 2013 win as “College Artist of the Year” in MTV's inaugural MTVu Woodie Awards, with that year's EP A Girl Named Destiny debuting in the top-25 on the iTunes Alternative Chart.
Composed of Wenrich on vocals and guitar, Gidley on drums, and Nick Byrd on bass, The Lonely Biscuits' have earned critical praise both for their EPs (with CampusRiot.com calling Things Sure Have Changed “perfect college music” with “something in their sound for everyone”) and their live shows. According to BlurredCulture.com, a May performance at Los Angeles' The Roxy found the group demonstrating “infectious passion and camaraderie that was a joy of watch,” resulting in “as fun and relaxed a performances as I've seen in a while.”
Tickets to The Lonely Biscuits' area concert are $10 and available by visiting MoellerNights.com.
