- BRISTON MARONEY
After a childhood and adolescence between Tennessee and Florida, 23-year-old recording artist Briston Maroney landed in Nashville and developed a style steeped in the sweat and scrappy sounds of the city's DIY house parties, winning over fans one living room at a time. Maroney’s 2018 EP Carnival – his take on the modern coming-of-age story and debut for Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records – amassed millions of streams and opened the door to tours with Wallows and Liz Cooper.
The following year, the success of his Indiana EP led to sold-out shows across the US, an international headline tour, and slots at marquee festivals including Austin City Limits and Pitchfork Paris. A performance for the illustrious World Café program led NPR to declare: “Briston Maroney is writing powerful rock songs with grit and heart.” He was named to various critics’ year-end “Best Of” lists, including PAPER, Vulture, and Consequence of Sound, with PAPER declaring him “Nashville’s next big star.”
At the top of 2020, Maroney released his third EP Miracle, heralded by “The Garden” which Consequence of Sound declared “refreshingly raw.” His 2018 track “Freakin’ Out On the Interstate” also gained a new resurgence, earning over a million streams a week and bringing the Knoxville-native’s catalog up over 50 million global streams, all prior to the release of a debut album.
An energetic live performer with a craft honed in basements, living rooms, and jam-packed clubs, Maroney spent much of 2019 on the road, including sold out headline shows both here and around the world, dates alongside Cold War Kids, and international festival performances spanning Austin City Limits Music Festival to Pitchfork Paris.
