DARK WATERS PROJECT
The Dark Waters Project is a Nashville based band that plays what they like to call, Darkgrass. Their music is a blend of multiple genre’s but is greatly influenced by Bluegrass and Alternative Rock. The band has a long list of previously played venues and positive reviews from all over North America and from countless people in the music industry. Dark Waters is led by vocal duo, Cherish Hamby and Adam Hamby. Cherish and Adam do a vast majority of the bands songwriting, with occasional covers that they love to make their own.
They have won multiple awards for songwriting and performance; including The Smoky Mountain Songwriting Festival, where they finished 1st in the Pop (Dream Again), Blues (Deep Red) and Rock (Sober) Genera’s, 2nd in Bluegrass (Bridges) and won the Grand Prize / Song of the Year with their song, “Deep Red” in 2018. They have also been featured on radio and nationally televised shows, like The Dugger Mountain Music Hall and Jim Parker’s Songwriters Showcase.
Adam and Cherish have had a number of different band members over the last 9 years, from small 3 piece acts to large 7 piece groups. From 2012-14, they had a 5 piece Alternative Rock band often described as The Civil Wars fronting Evanescence. They had their first collaborative album titled, “The Rains”, produced in the Fall of 2014 by Mike Hartnett.

With honest lyrics that come from the heart and a passion for her artistry that goes unmatched, Molly Lovette is ready to show the world what she’s made of. Any country fan knows that the best country music comes out of real-life experiences, and that is exactly where this vibrant country artist draws her inspiration for her music. With her talent and a gift for creating raw and real music, Molly Lovette is winning the hearts of country listeners everywhere.
Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Molly and her two siblings grew up in a very close-knit family. Deep rooted in tradition and faith, Molly attended Catholic grade school and then an all-girls Catholic High School – the same one that her grandmother, her mother, her five cousins, and her younger sister all attended. However, music was another tradition that the family passed along to their children as well. Molly’s mother was always playing music throughout the house when she was young, and her grandmother was known to write music and always sing to her. Molly admits that her dad definitely has some country roots as well that influenced her love for country music, in fact her parents took her to her first concert – Tim McGraw – at the tender age of 5! So, it wasn’t long before her family’s love for music translated over and became Molly’s love for music. She was in every talent show from kindergarten on and remembers putting on small “concerts” for her family and babysitters from a young age. “My parents have told me that as a toddler, I would sit in front of the air vents and sing for hours so I can hear myself through those vents.”
