Thank YOU, thank YOU, thank YOU. Hello Again! Welcome to another wonderful collaboration between East Side Story and The Post. Let me be the first to officially, whole-heartedly welcome you to recap and recording of the 115th epic edition of East Side Storytellin’! Like the 114, I repeat … 114, previous shows East Side Story has put together, we all decided to take a break from our busy schedules all over town in order to sit back and relax and get everyone cultured up just right in the form of a Nashville writer reading from original prose, followed by an amazing local musician performing and talking about their original music, and then a round-up creative conversation with all featured guests of this event to talk about their individual journeys and personal ties to Nashville. Without further ado, fulfilling the entertainment portion of your day, this is the recap and recording of East Side Storytellin’ 115. Let us begin, again.

The first featured artist of the night is a Houston, Texas native who now is a Nashvillian inside and out. He is a devout student of short long form, reads and writes and works in various times and spaces aggregating around Nashville. He has several cats, most of which have dirty, unrepeatable names, but he is not a crazy cat person. That said, he said that the cats often talk to him in his sleep and often read old recipes from various Franco-American cookbooks published in the 70’s. His parole officer’s name is Jeff. That said, this man gave one of the most inspiring readings I’ve ever witnessed inside and out of East Side Story. Inside and out, put your hands together and give a big round of applause for the one, the only, Joel Lain.

Joel was fairly and appropriately amped up just right after bringing a few cold brews and some really hot takes with him to The Post on such a special occasion. We spoke before the show about his recent changes in writing goals in terms of style, time, and taking a stab at his first full-length novel adventure. Hot off the first draft press, Joel had the first two chapters in tow. And wouldn’t you know, Joel also had his fancy character accents and passionate expressions on hand too (as seen in the photos below).

Whether it was a spot on Cajun accent or an older man or something I couldn’t even catch the reference because I was laughing so hard WITH him and the others fully enjoying this story and trip he was taking us on, Joel knows how to captivate a crowd and connect with anyone he is around. He has so many gifts with words and stories, and I always love listening to whatever he shares with us.

The first chapter was set in a hospital with a multitude of characters who were searching answers, truth, trust, and the lighter side of life in the middle of chaos and a major rush of urgency. Sound exciting? Well, yes it was. The words were read at a pace that kept you running closely behind every syllable that Joel dropped for us to follow. Then, taking a hard right turn into chapter 2, Joel jumped head and voice and accent first into an interview in the country with the likes of one of the most original characters I’ve ever heard. This is one of those times in the recap where I will defer to the pictures of the facial expressions and the audio from the recording below for you to truly grasp the magic Joel is creating. That said, I can’t wait to hear and read more as soon as he shares more with us. I’m fairly certain you will love it all too.

Our featured music of the night is a Motown native who moved to East Nashville and recorded the first of four CDs on the “right side of the Cumberland River” 13 years before Rolling Stone named the neighborhood the “Best Music Scene” in the country. Born in Detroit, this guy has brought an element of soul and art appreciation to everything he has written or recorded since moving here in 1992. His music has been featured on Late Night with David Letterman, he has gigged all over the US and Europe, and he still gives off the impression that he’s just getting started. We’ll talk more about everything he brings to the Nashville creative scene, but let’s first sit back and take in some of his original songs. Alongside his friends, JP Lilliston and Jerry Hager, it was awesome to finally give a warm welcome to the East Side Storytellin’ family to the talented Mighty Joe Nolan.

Joe Nolan is one of the handful of people in town that has seen the many changes of Nashville first hand, but he is also one of the few that you can find various impressions of his creativity at every single color change of the timeline (if you were a rock expert examining the open cliff facade of the artistic history of Nashville for the past 25 years). He is not just a musician, he is an excellent storyteller, poet, photographer, journalist, and person who supports other artists via his writing and attendance as much as anyone else I know. So it wasn’t surprising to me when he kicked off his set with an epic spoken word original called SERENADE alongside the musical accompaniment of his talented band of brothers by his side. It was a perfect transition between Joel’s characters and the layered stories within stories found in every single one of Joe’s songs.

Joe, like Joel, uses different tones and emotions expressed physically with his entire body and through his sounds when he performs his original tunes (again, as you can see in the following pictures above and below). Point being, there was never a dull moment and it all totally hit us just right. I think I decided to put several of these pictures in black and white because you really can’t fully grasp how amazing his gold jacket was if you weren’t there in person. It was shining as bright as the motifs in every track.

But keeping with the visual takes of this veteran trio, you can see in these pictures, color or black/white, that they are perfectly symmetric in style, energy flow, and giving each other enough space to each do their thing superbly while all the while being close enough to give subtle looks or gestures to change a beat on a dime. It felt like they were a poetic troupe straight out of the beatnik scene. But instead of just words, Joe brought poetic stories to life while JP sounded like a sober Keith Richards and Jerry reminded me of the local stand-up bass legend in Hags. Look. Enough about me ranting about these guys. You can take a listen for yourself below and let me know what you think after you share it a few times over.

After Joe ended the set with a song with the actual word story involved with it, his partners took a seat and we brought up Joel to the microphone to start a conversation that I’m sure could’ve easily had lasted 4 hours without us trying. It was filled with laughs, more accents, big hand gestures, easy transitions between the guests to relate on so many creative levels, and it was another beginning of what is sure to be the next story of two artists becoming good friends after being on this show. Joel and Joe are two writers I admire more than most, and it is fairly obvious to me that they should know each other because they spend so much of their time and energy helping other artists become greater at their craft, promotion, and life in general. I’m honored to call both friends, but I’m even more excited to know I’ll get these two together sooner than later on another idea that I haven’t even asked them about yet. So before I get that crazy cat out of the bag, I’ll leave you with one more group photo of the three of us and then some bold words and thanks to follow.

Here it is, the edited recording of East Side Storytellin’ 115: the night when Joe and Joel shared original stories and energy with a very happy room at The Post East on Tuesday, September 19, 2017. Please feel free to listen to it on repeat and share it with all of your family and friends.

Before I say goodbye for this round of fun, I’d like to give a big round of thanks for Joel and Joe (and JP & Jerry) for sharing their stories, talents, and time with us.

Thank YOU, thank YOU, thank YOU. Hello Again! Welcome to another wonderful collaboration between East Side Story and The Post. Let me be the first to officially, whole-heartedly welcome you to the recap and recording of the 109th epic edition of East Side Storytellin’! Like the 108, I repeat … 108, previous shows East Side Story has put together, we all decided to take a break from our busy schedules all over town in order to sit back and relax and get everyone cultured up just right in the form of a Nashville writer reading from original prose, followed by an amazing local musician performing and talking about their original music, and then a round-up creative conversation with all featured guests of this event to talk about their individual journeys and personal ties to Nashville. Without further ado, fulfilling the entertainment portion of your day, this is East Side Storytellin’ 109. Let us begin, again.

The first featured artist of the night is a powerhouse female artist who originally hails from the mountains of North Carolina where she was raised in an unstructured classroom from home by her mother, an author and nutritionist. Spending tons of time outdoors during her childhood, her early education and upbringing plays a heavy influence on her style and voice. She’s the featured author tonight because her first novella, You Holy Screaming Symphony, has been a treasure at East Side Story for some time now. She has also published works of short fiction and poetry in various magazines such as Perjus and others, and she is an active member of our friends at The Porch Writers’ Collective. Let me just say it. It was an honor to finally spotlight and introduce the very talented Jenna Dorian.

Jenna brought an unrelated trilogy of readings to the stage, and she was ready to roll as soon as I got out of the way. She appeared to be as equally honored to be involved with the show as I was to introduce her. She is an amazingly talented writer, with a work ethic like few around, and she’s just getting started. So, when she stared her set, she let the audience know pretty much everything she was thinking, about the moment and the material.

With a smile on her face and her heart on her sleeve, she went through the levels of her artist insecurities while revealing her true mission of discovering her comedic writing voice someday but settling knee deep into her sad characters and situations for the time being. After she read an excerpt from her novella, she addressed the crowd directly when she called out the comedic genius of Patrick Shaffner. She had recognized him from visiting the Third Coast Comedy Improv night (you should check them out as much as you can). They had some witty banter before Jenna jumped heart first into an original, sad tale about the first time a mother left her … a flash creative non-fiction piece (because that is a thing, as she recently discovered and relayed). Then, when she had the crowd right where she wanted them at full attention, she went into a slightly emotional, very deep story about the grieving of love and life loss between a marriage and the dream of a baby never to be. Like I told you, this girl is great. You can hear the stories in the recording below, but know that the way she casually and candidly throws her joy and secondary thoughts of an outside personal narrator in between the sad notes of her prose really makes for such a delightful and instant classic way to digest Jenna’s art in person. It kinda makes me want her to do an audio book version of her writing in the same style.

Our featured music of the night is someone I first saw sing alongside my wife a few years ago at The Fontanel. Let me clarify, she was not actually singing beside my wife. My wife was beside me in the crowd but equally blown away. This special lady was on stage singing alongside her long time hero, Keb’ Mo’ for his monthly Blues Jam at The Fontanel. It was also the night when we first were introduced to the musician like none other named Mike Hicks. You should check him out pronto. Anyways, back to the musician at hand. This young star on the rise moved to Music City from Motown. With Detroit roots, it may not surprise you to hear a beautiful blend of R&B and Soul from this lady once she gets going. She has a voice as powerful as Etta, Aretha, Ella, and Billie, to name a few of her singular named heroes. She released her first EP in 2015 and did a spell on the national television show America’s Got Talent too. I’m not sure if everyone in the house was as ready as I was for the second powerhouse female with the voice way beyond any of Wonder Woman’s skills, but there was no turning back after saying all of this good stuff and finally aligning up the stars to book this lady. I’m talking about the unforgettable soulstress, Alicia Michilli!

With the same natural nervousness and self-degrading personality as Jenna, Alicia approached the crowd with her guitar strapped over the shoulder and her heart on her sleeve as well. If you had never seen her perform, you might think she was a nervous, fresh out of college, intern at her first day on the job inside a cubicle who stepped out with the new team to do karaoke for the first time. And, as if it had been proclaimed and written in the good book, then Alicia started to sing. Everything changed after that first note.

Alicia mentioned before the show that she has the look of an angel but the mouth of a sailor. You may notice more than one edit in the dialogue of the recording. All that said, I’ll go ahead and say it that Alicia has the look of an angel but a voice of a soul goddess. It is not only a gift from the heavens that she trains and takes care of like a baby, it is a gift for anyone who gets a chance to hear her share it aloud. I could ramble and compliment this artist for a week straight, as you can tell from the first paragraph or two here, but I’ll let the angel do the singing in the recording below.


Like Jenna, Alicia is her toughest critic. I get it. We all need to be our own toughest critis, but in the end we know there are a ton of haters and critics out in the world. So for tonight, in this shared moment, there was nothing but love and appreciation for every personal note and lyric we witnessed. I can’t speak for everyone else in the room, but I know I was just as close to happy tears as Alicia said she was after she sang the song written for and about her recently passed grandfather. If you can’t relate with and instantly fall in love with that song and the way she sang it from the heart, I’d tell you that you need to make an appointment with the closest doctor to examine if you still have one beating. I’m serious. Take a listen to her final happy song and tell me that isn’t the most soulful and, pun intended, heartfelt heartbeat lyrics you’ve ever heard. I was humming it for hours after the show.

But as soon as Alicia was getting revved up and totally in her wheelhouse with the crowd, everyone in the palm of her hands really, she was finished and ready to talk alongside her new best friend in Jenna. Let me know after you listen to the show if you don’t think they are long lost sisters. Yet again, the non-formula of pairing artists has worked its magic and formally introduced two artists who were born to work together and appreciate the talents they both share. It was obvious to me, as the self-declared translator of their personal answers to my general questions, that these two will do something else going forward. They both had smiles and laughs for days, and they are both as ego-free, talented, humbled, and giving of their positivity as anyone I’ve met in quite some time. This evening, this combo, this event was something special to behold. I feel extremely blessed to have been a small part in this sweet picture.

So here it is, the edited version of East Side Storytellin’ 109, featuring the Wonder Women dynamic duo of Jenna Dorian and Alicia Michilli at The Post East on June 20, 2017. It was a night to remember, one nobody will soon forget. Please share this link and enjoy it for yourself, over and over again. You’re welcome.

Before I say goodbye for this round of fun, I’d like to give a big round of thanks for Jenna and Alicia for sharing their stories, talents, and time with us.

Thank YOU, thank YOU, thank YOU. Good morning, afternoon, or evening (depending on when you read this) and welcome to a monumental event at hand. With Unbound Arts at the helm of a beautifully planned and enjoyed evening, let me be one of the first to recap and share that this was not just the 1st event East Side Story experienced at Riverwood Mansion, this was the 52nd spectacular edition of East Side Storytellin’! Like the 51 previous shows we had put together before, we all arrived at Riverwood Mansion, described below here and now, to get y’all cultured up just right in the form of a Nashville writer reading from original prose, followed by an amazing local musician performing and talking about their original music, and then a round-up creative conversation with all featured guests of this event to talk about their individual journeys and personal ties to Nashville. Without further ado, fulfilling – to the max – the entertainment portion of the night, this was East Side Storytellin’ 52. Let us begin, again.

If you haven’t been to Riverwood Mansion before, you really need to make it a point to take a visit. Unbound Arts will be hosting multiple pop-up events every month, on top of the glamorous weddings that you may or may not already be invited to as well. Either way, you need to take the time to get lost in the history and wonder that Riverwood Mansion possesses. All of the featured artists and guests piling in before the show actually started were able to spend time wandering about throughout the upstairs and downstairs rooms and really take quite the trip on a cold Tuesday night in January. People were dressed nice and it was more than fancy for all involved. It was a treat even before the food and entertainment began.

Speaking of treats, before we get to the show, one of the coolest things we did for this epic undertaking like none before was to involve the Riverwood Mansion owner/chef, Debbie Sutton, to create something very special for the night. She had contacted the featured guests before the show and planned a 4 course meal to add to the mix. Before the show began, I introduced Jennifer Anderson of Unbound Arts to talk about the venue and then introduce Debbie. Debbie greeted the packed and seated crowd with pleasantries. Then, without skipping a beat, she described the food and its inspiration in the order that it would be served.

1st – A Southern play on Cici Bean Soup, made with good ol’ White Beans.
2nd – Fried Green Tomato Parmesan with Angel Hair Pasta
3rd – Chicken Marsala, Garlic Smashed Potatoes, Slow Cooked Green Beans
4th – Buttermilk Red Velvet Gelato

I was sitting next to Tom stage right and it sounded like a firework show of OOO’s and AHH’s behind us. I kid you not, the crowd exploded into jubilation like a group of Black Friday shoppers at midnight after Debbie detailed the desert for the night. It was totally amazing all around. You could sense the wonder and inspiration in the air. Basically, everyone who bought a ticket and attended was served some of the best and unique food anywhere in town that evening … fact. So, on top of the show below, now you know what you missed and why you need to get a ticket for the next show before it sells out!

Now, here is the show … East Side Storytellin’ 52.

The first featured guest of the evening is a man of few words but a man that is admired by many because the words he does share always count and matter so much to everyone in his life. He is a local poet who received a certificate from the MTSU’s Writer’s Loft in January of 2013, where people like Jeff Hardin and Kory Wells were his mentors. He has been a guest host at Poetry in the Brew and was recently featured at Poet’s Corner at Scarritt-Bennett this past October. He has been published in the journals Blast Furnace, Number One, Third Wednesday, and Nashville Arts Magazine (to name a few and counting). Beyond his stellar writing and performing track record among his writing peers, this guy has “thru-hiked” the Appalachian Trail twice (both being 6 month endeavors). He also studies and practices Mindfulness, something we all should do better at taking notes and implementing into our own lives. It was an honor and great feeling to introduce this man to kick off 2015 in style and I was not alone in giving a mindful and heart-filled welcome to the stage to the likes of the one and only Walker Bass!

Walker didn’t even bother starting his soup because he was ready to read. He walked through the crowd, filled with a handful of past East Side Storytellin’ alumni and regular supporters, and made his way to the spotlight below the beautiful chandelier. Honestly, the set-up was impeccable and dreamy for any event coordinator of any sort. Back to Walker, he kicked things off with his one and only sonnet. He described how difficult those can be at times, and that was the only moment difficult was mention or expressed throughout his readings because he really knocked the performance out of the park (or mansion, as it was). Walker has an innate presence and skill to exude a calm aura but at the same time cut to the core and revealing the depths of life for all to see how he sees the world. The poem about the bathroom door telling him where to go and what to do was simply awe-inspiring. Like most of the other talented Nashville poets that have taken the East Side Storytellin’ stage, I can’t do them justice with the recap after the fact. You really do need to just listen to the recording below to get the full effect (and come in person if you don’t want it edited at all and to feel it live).

Before Walker took his seat for his food and applause, he did something I’ve always wanted to have happen at the shows and never has occurred up to this show. He asked the musicians, Kirabelle and Joshua Dent, to come on stage and play their instruments to accompany his words. The style of his poetry and the sheer talent of the instrumentalists for this moment fit like a charm. Actually, it was more than a charm or charming. It was perfect.

We took a short break to let Walker sit down and enjoy the music of the night and for the musicians to get set up. The featured musician of the night was yet another person that I discovered while perusing the pictures and recap from the artists festival this past year with Float Nashville (an organization that all of you should take time to look up and check out this year). Born into an eclectic musical family of Welsh, Scots, English, and Italian ancestry, this female phenome is a blend of Folk, Pop, and Jazz mixed with a fine sense of pitch and humor, intonation and elegance. She can play the guitar, banjolele, ukulele, and the piano (probably not at the same time though, though I wouldn’t be surprised if she did). She was recently featured on the Firebreathmas 2014 album called “All I Got for Christmas” and you can buy more of her tunes online in the form of “Songs for Baby Beans” and “Wildwood Flower.” It has been written that this lady sounds like Norah Jones and Regina Spektor spun on a 40′s record player. Like Riverwood Mansion and the overall setting of this particular event we found ourselves in that night, she brings a fresh energy to an old sound. Joined by her good friend and cellist Joshua Dent, the loving crowd put their hands together and showed big love for Kirabelle!

Kirabelle, a born professional musician and experienced Vaudeville act, instantly lit up the faces and smiles for all eating their 2nd or 3rd course at that point. She mentioned that she had managed to stuff some of the goodness in her mouth before taking the stage, and that she was honored to be a part of such a magical night. Joshua, one of the best jazz cellist I’ve ever seen play live, kept Kirabelle’s humor and stories in check with his constant chuckles and improv sounds from behind. It was quite the duo to kick off the new year with new sounds.

In a city filled with country, it was nice beyond words to fill the antebellum house with sounds of folk jazz (yes, Kirabelle coined it that way). Her voice was like something Boardwalk Empire would have dreamed about showcasing, and I know my wife was not alone in wanting to capture her sound for our newest very old record player at our house. Everything about Kirabelle’s performance was a nod of respect to musical ancestry and yet making it new in a way that was comfortable and exciting and breathtaking for all in the crowd. She did fit in two covers- Bill Wither’s “Ain’t No Sunshine” and Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell’s “You Are My Sunshine.” Both were so poignant, original, and … seriously, yet again I cannot give these people justice in a recap. You simply must listen to the show below and make plans to see these shows live so you don’t miss a minute of awesome.

Before Kirabelle and Joshua put down their instruments, they left us with a very cool, introspective original that displayed feelings of love and longing but in a way with such skill and sound that I’ve never quite heard anything like it before. This was something special y’all!

After the music stopped, I managed to get Kirabelle and Walker back on stage to share some personal thoughts on creativity and their paths to Nashville and beyond. I’ll just stop talking now, and let the recording do them and the show justice. I could ramble for days here if allowed.

So, as promised, here is the edited version of Unbound Arts presents: East Side Storytellin’ 52 with Kirabelle (featuring Joshua Dent) and Walker Bass. Enjoy it over and over and share it with a friend or two:
