Street Corner Symphony
Street Corner Symphony
Celebrate Street Corner Symphony is a contemporary a cappella group based out of Nashville, Tennessee, founded on in 2010 to compete in NBC's all-vocal competition, The Sing-Off. They became internationally known in 2010 when they became runners-up on the show's second season. These southern gents quickly won over Sing-Off judges Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), Shawn Stockman (Boyz II Men), and Nicole Scherzinger (The Pussycat Dolls), and--most importantly--millions of NBC primetime viewers after demonstrating their unique, laid-back-yet-dynamic style of a cappella. Since their success on The Sing-Off, Street Corner Symphony has made their mark on the music world, recording albums, providing clinics for schools, giving benefits for cancer, performing across the country and around the world, and even working with major artists including Ben Folds, Alison Krauss, and Take 6's Claude McKnight.

The six members of the group all hail from the Southeast, and they include three brothers: Jeremy, Jonathan, and Richie Lister, and three college friends: Adam Chance, John Martin, and Mark McLemore. Five of the six guys are the sons of ministers, which contributes to their natural ears for harmony as well as their playful sense of mischief, and all six of them have expertise in a wide variety of styles. This allows Street Corner Symphony to seamlessly move between most styles of music, feeling at home in all of them. Their repertoire covers a wide range, from gospel and barbershop to rock and pop, appealing to the young and old alike.

Louisiana-born Andy Davis broke onto the scene in 2004 with a charming, acoustic debut called “Thinks of Her,” that quickly spread among college campuses nationwide. Based in Nashville, TN then, Davis quickly hit the road opening for artists such as Jakob Dylan, Mat Kearney, Dave Barnes, Matt Wertz, needtobreathe, and more, and began collecting fans one city at a time.

Since then, Davis has released six albums, including two produced by Mitchell Froom (Randy Newman, Crowded House, Tom Waits, Sheryl Crow), one of which was made possible by a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $41,000 in 30 days. Davis was also a founding member of the “Ten Out of Tenn,” a critically-acclaimed collective of Nashville singer/songwriters (Katie Herzig, Matthew Perryman Jones, Butterfly Boucher, etc) who joined forces in super-band fashion for a collaborative tour, documented in the award-winning film, “Any Day Now.”

In 2015, Davis released a 5-song EP called “Easy Takedowns”—a slight departure from the analog, retro vibes of his previous record, “Heartbreak Yellow,” “Easy Takedowns” frames Davis’s continually sly, clever lyrics into a more electronic-driven palette, feeling a bit less like a singer-songwriter record, and more like an alt-R&B project. Fans of James Blake, Kevin Garrett & Chet Faker may enjoy the new direction…

A multi-instrumentalist with old-school charm, a 10-year track record, and a pulse for the often irregular heartbeat of human relationships, Andy Davis continues to engage longtime fans and win new ones.
