Year of October is a rock band based in Nashville that was founded in 2010 while members Phlecia and Josh were attending the University of Kentucky. Year of October started out as an acoustic singer/songwriter group but soon made the transition to a full band which completes their distinctive sound.
Their dedication and love for music and songwriting shines through on their first album “Stories” which was released in early 2012. With influences including The Black Keys, Led Zeppelin and Norah Jones, they are led by bluesy vocals, strong lyrics, and roaring guitars that create a sound reminiscent of the ’70s but still fresh and modern.
In this episode of our Mid Tenn Listens podcast, we chat with Year of October about influences, the upcoming album (Trouble Comes), challenges in this technology driven age and much more.
