Navy vet and songwriter Jared Ashley releases video for "Cherrybend"

This past weekend was Veterans' Day, and The Deli Nashville just so happened to get the perfect track in our inbox to feature in honor of that. Singer-songwriter and Navy veteran Jared Ashley put out a music video for "Cherrybend", a new song from his upcoming album. The song's title comes from Operation Cherrybend, an annual event in Wilmington, OH that seeks to spread awareness about veterans' issues. "Cherrybend" follows in that operation's footsteps; in the music video, Ashley highlights that 22 veterans commit suicide every day. He wrote the song and acts in the music video as a tribute to one such veteran, Jeffery “Ozzy” Otzwik, with whom Ashley served in the Navy. Ashley hopes that with the song and the video, people might start to understand the issues that veterans face, and help create spaces for them to relax, unwind, and get the support they need. You can watch the video for "Cherrybend" below. (And of course, The Deli Nashville thanks Ashley for his service.) - Will Sisskind

New Track: "Center City Blues" - Kelsey Cork and the Swigs

Kelsey Cork and the Swigs just released their debut single, “Center City Blues,” via Good How Are You Records. The song gradually revs up on a blues-rock path, while contextually delving into the hierarchal power structure and where we, as individuals, all fall or fit in. Hopefully the recent election results will mark a step toward improvement, and as the song suggest, no matter what your standing is, it's important to truly enjoy yourself. You can get down with Kelsey Cork and the Swigs this Friday, November 16 at The Bottom, with Slomo Sapiens and Trash Boy. (Photo by Alyssa Resh)

   

Jacque Jordan releases new Americana EP "The L.J."

There's a smoky and carefree nature to Jacque Jordan's brand of folk indie; her newest EP The L.J. contains five tracks that Jordan has honed over the last several months to best show her style. As an Atlanta native who calls Nashville home, Jordan embodies the warmth of a Southern autumn night and the passion of a songwriter searching for the right words to paint a picture of her present moment. All of the songs on The L.J. contain field noise, which gives the impression that they were recorded live; that gives these polished songs the rough edge that makes Jordan's latest EP interesting. The album is available on Spotify; watch her live performance of the track "Wild Oats" below. - Will Sisskind
