Birmingham's premier country songwriter night 'Nashville Sounds In The Round' in partnership with B:Music! Hosted by multi award-winning Gasoline & Matches, artists are invited to tell the stories behind their songs in a Bluebird Café style ‘In The Round’ session, stripping the songs back to their origins and transporting the audience right back to the writing rooms.

To celebrate the partnership with Abbey Road Studios and the Music Photography Awards, one of the rounds in this performance will feature covers of iconic songs recorded at Abbey Road, or new music written specifically for this performance that is inspired by Abbey Road.

Gasoline & Matches

Gasoline & Matches are a high energy, multi-award winning, dual fronted British band combining close harmonies, melodic guitar licks and serious musicianship. Fronted by Birmingham natives Sally Rea Morris and Stephen Marks, they are fierce entertainers known for their tongue-in-cheek and much-loved song "Never Have I Ever" described by Bob Harris as “Clever, funny, totally original…and it’s Country!” They built momentum after multiple spins on BBC Radio 2, and never fail to get festival goers on their feet to participate in the infamous drinking game which inspired the song. As resident hosts of Nashville Sounds in the Round, their Bluebird Cafe style songwriter round at Birmingham Symphony Hall, it’s clear to see their contribution & influence on Country and Americana music in the Midlands.

Jeremy McComb

Good things come to those who wait, but luck favours the bold. And for Jeremy McComb, the balance comes natural. A storyteller epitomizing “been there and done that,” McComb has explored nearly every facet of the entertainment industry, all on his own terms. From radio to tour managing, releasing five albums, growing an international fan base, hitting the Billboard charts and writing songs for projects selling over 6 Million copies … including a Grammy-nominated soundtrack (Blue Collar Comedy Tour – One for the Road). Proudly and fiercely independent in both spirit and style, Jeremy was born in Idaho as a sixth-generation musician. Music is in McComb’s DNA but he’s a distinct branch on the family tree. Obsessed with artists who share a gift for storytelling (and little else), he found inspiration in everything from Jim Croce to Tom Petty, and now bridges the canyons between country, rock and folk.

Maggie Baugh

With roots from Boca Raton, FL Nashville artist Maggie Baugh started her music career by playing the fiddle on stage with Charlie Daniels when she was 13 years old. Baugh's social media presence is strong, with over 30 million views on her TikTok series “Finish The Lick”. In 2023, Baugh released her debut album "Dear Me" in October 2023 which gained over 500k streams in its first day. She also toured with country acapella group Home Free throughout the duration of last year, with venues that included the famous Ryman Auditorium. Starting off 2024 strong, was announced as part of Tidal's "Rising" Class for 2024. Dropping her first single called ‘24 just a few weeks later, Baugh is set to release a new single in the spring. In addition to new music, Maggie is currently on her first international tour with both headlining and opening dates, recently showing off her musicianship on the 2024 CMT Awards, performing alongside Keith Urban.

John Wesley Satterfield

John Wesley Satterfield began playing guitar when he was 12 with his father teaching him tunes by legendary songwriters such as Jim Croce, Bob Dylan, and Harry Chapin among others. Since then, he has taken his guitar out of the living room and on to stages large and small. Following a 4 year enlistment in the US Coast Guard aboard the Cutter Reliance out of Kittery, ME, Satterfield moved to Wilmington, NC to form the bluegrass/folk trio, Woodwork Roadshow. After 4 years of touring and 2 albums, John Wesley branched out on his own to continue his career as a solo artist, writing and recording 2 more albums while completing a BA in Media Arts at University of South Carolina. Following graduation in May of 2012, he moved to Nashville, TN. His most recent release, Goodbye Whiskey, is a semi-autobiographical batch of songs that Satterfield has been performing with his aptly named, Damn Fine Band. Goodbye Whiskey was produced by Mike Gossin of the country band, Gloriana, and engineered by Mark Dobson (Santana, Matchbox 20, Aerosmith). He currently calls the Music City home and tours constantly. Stay tuned for more from this up and coming artist!
