LOVENOISE CELEBRATES 5 YEARS:
Since 2003, Lovenoise has highlighted the brightest local Nashville, TN, national and international R&B and soul artists by bringing together a live music audience of trendsetters and tastemakers. From B.B. Kings (Nashville) to the Bar Car in Cummings Station, and now The Place, Lovenoise prides its ability to draw countless crowds coming to hear the best in live music and poetry each Sunday night while maintaining a safe and artistic environment for artists and audiences.
"Lovenoise went from a small party of about 400 of our friends that enjoyed the same kinds of music as we did to a weekly event that produces large concerts and events in and outside of Nashville," said Eric Holt, co-founder of Lovenoise and chief orchestrator of the Lovenoise brand. "We have since built a dedicated following and have become a breeding ground for up and coming soul musicians across the country," he said.

Holt, along with Lovenoise co-founders LaSalle Chapman, Chip Hockett, Antoine Nunn and Bryce Page, has transformed Lovenoise into one of the largest and most respected platforms for live entertainment in the city and beyond. Featured national artists have included Tamia, Musiq Soulchild, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Raphael Saadiq, Prince Paul, Amel Larrieux, Saul Williams, Goapele, KRS-ONE, Raheem DeVaughn, Chrisette Michele, Anthony David and PJ Morton among others.
"We have worked with some of the best artists and poets in Nashville and have exposed our local music scene to national artists. Major record labels call us with new artists or new releases to play at Lovenoise for the exposure simply because we have managed to achieve a longstanding quality event," he added.

Now with national acclaim, Lovenoise is adding to the musical experience by incorporating more social and lifestyle events that speak to the mind, body and soul. In the next five years, the founders of Lovenoise plan to host larger concerts, in Nashville and other cities, as well as more events such as sport outings and lectures. "We understand that we have built a brand that people trust over the past five years. With that trust, there is a responsibility to share knowledge that can help improve lives on all levels, not just a place to relax and listen to cool music," said Holt.
