VENTS has a last minute gift for all the readers, the magazine have joined forces with the awesome Shane Tutmarc for the premiere of his newest single “The Basement in Nashville”.
On the song, Shane comments
“‘The Basement in Nashville‘ is the oldest recording of this single-a-month series. It dates back to my first trip to Nashville in June of 2008. I had a two-week residency set up at the Basement, but had never been to Nashville before. And the musicians I lined-up to play with me were friends of friends, that I’d never met in person. So I wrote this little ditty about needing a place to crash. It’s very much a humorous Johnny Cash kind of thing. The musicians I played with, have ended up being my most consistent collaborators over the 6 years since becoming a Nashville resident. Nathan Thomas, who engineered the track and played bass on it, has mixed and mastered every song of this year’s series, and Aaron Tosti who played drums, has provided drums for at least half the songs, so it seemed appropriate to end this year-long series with the song that started it all for me in Nashville.”
