About the Event
Empty Atlas (Jackson, MS) - Mississippi is a state known for its storytellers and a rich history of groundbreaking musicians. Both terms certainly apply to Jackson indie-rockers Empty Atlas.
Formed in central Mississippi in 2014, Empty Atlas packs poignant narratives of personal growth and life experience into gripping, melodic indie-rock music. Lyricist and vocalist Micah Smith fronts the outfit, which released its debut full-length album, “Hestia,” in December 2016, shortly before bassist Alex Ingram, guitarist Brennan Michael White and drummer Robert Currie Hansford joined, cementing the band’s lineup.
Empty Atlas released their latest single, “Short Fiction” – a catchy, driving ode to lost love and summers past – in August 2018. They are currently reteaming with engineer Nick Smith at Dipping Vat Studio to record their sophomore full-length while also performing throughout the region.
In recent years, the band has shared the stage with popular acts such as Jared & the Mill, The Bright Light Social Hour, Broadside, Secret Stuff, The Vegabonds, Hodera and Sweet Crude, and worked with industry professionals such as Mark Needham (Fleetwood Mac, The Killers), Joe Causey (Colony House, Steven Curtis Chapman) and Eric Woolard (For a Season, Courier).
