Nashville-based alternative duo Leagues will host a unique, invite-only event at The Basement on Wednesday, August 17th & beginning promptly at 8:00 pm.
Comprised of lead vocalist and songwriter Thad Cockrell and producer/programmer/drummer Jeremy Lutito, Leagues first turned heads with their 2013 breakout debut album, You Belong Here. Widely hailed as an indie standout that year, Leagues’ debut garnered a rabid fan base behind the breakout alternative and AAA singles “Spotlight” and “Walking Backwards.”
Following that success, the band set about making a follow-up album. The resulting 11-track album, Alone Together, proves the band’s instincts are better than ever. Produced entirely by Lutito, Alone Together captures a creative duo egging each other on to ever-greater heights. The songs themselves are among Cockrell’s best. Made all the more dynamic by Lutito’s ability to continue pushing the programming envelope.
“Thad and I try to remove ourselves from thinking that our music is all about us.” Lutito says.
“We want to create music that connects to people,” Thad continues, “In Leagues, we always say that the silent member, the third member of the band, is the audience and the pleasure of the crowd.”
