Year of October is a fuzzed out rock band from Nashville, TN. They travel the U.S. in a minivan to bring their dirty riffs and dark grooves to people everywhere. Made up of Phlecia Sullivan (vocals), Josh Sullivan (guitar), and James Varner (drums) their original music has been described as a Black Sabbath sound with Amy Winehouse in the lead. Their 2017 album “Trouble Comes” was named Best Rock Album at the Nashville Industry Music Awards, which has helped them become a staple in the Nashville rock scene and led to a more extensive tour schedule. They know how to put on a powerful rock show and pull people in with their dynamic and energetic performance. Their new album ‘Wastelands’ is their hardest hitting to date. The singles “Black Widow” & “Greevil” really showcase this band’s ability to span genres and draw you in to their music. 


“Maybe it’s their clawing Nashville-rock edge and soulful, swirling vocals. Maybe it’s their unique brand of blues rock.”
