One Thing About Nashville

What is one way Nashville has influenced your music? For our Debut EP we were able to write with friends that we made while living in Nashville that helped shaped those songs off the record that are the fan favorites. Our music is constantly evolving depending on what we’re listening to. Our Debut EP you can probably hear the influence from Nashville artists we were listening to at the time and years before such as Kacey Musgraves and other local “Nashville” artists.

Favorite grocery store to shop: Trader Joes or Aldi if you want the best bang for your buck

Meet The Lovers - featuring Amanda June and Cole Vosbury. Two singer-songwriters who met by divine will at a writer’s night in Franklin, TN on the night of February 26, 2014. After Vosbury’s national success as a Top 5 finalist on season 5 of NBC’s The Voice, he was on and off the road touring state by state and brought Amanda June alongside to perform songs they had recently written together. They naturally became inseparable, sharing every stage together from there on out. The two decided to combine forces and a couple years later, they decided to put out music together as “The Lovers.” Inspired by the depth of the meaning behind The Lovers Tarot Card, you could say the birth of the creative pair was truly in the cards. “Together they are seamless, each artist's voice complementing the other's wonderfully with a magic that happens on and off stage.”

They have gained an organic following from playing sought after listening rooms, theaters, and music festivals for the past 7 years. In 2020, exactly 6 years to the day they met, Cole & Amanda June released their long-awaited 7 song Debut EP. It was recorded and produced by The Lovers in their living room studio. It is a labor of love influenced by Americana, Country, and soul music. From the very first tune of the EP “Livin’ Life and Killin’ Time," co-written with hit songwriter and dear friend Dave Pahanish, you know you are in for a treat. “The Lovers” album from beginning to end is a breath of fresh air as the nostalgic sounds and captivating melodies of The Lovers bring you into their world of imagination. They are both artists in their own right and live to create whether that be visual art or music. Cole also releases his own solo work that he is very passionate about and has two full lengths albums out with a large catalog of music waiting to be heard. The most important thing to them now day in and day out is to be home more to make sure they have as much time as possible to make music or sit around and listen to their favorite records. Writing for film is also a passion of theirs and they are starting to transition from a full time touring act to songwriters who can work from home.

Their second EP ‘Lite Brite’ is due to release in June of 2021 which is completely written, performed and recorded by the two of them over the course of a year. Inspired by the kind of music and sounds they were hearing at the time, their new EP leans more towards folk and synth-pop. Their EP is sure to take you to another state of mind. The Lovers music is evergreen and they can’t wait to share the new record with everyone.
