VOORHEESVILLE – Voorheesville native and indie-pop artist Annie Scherer is making a name for herself on Nashville’s music scene and has been named a finalist in the city’s Music City Mayhem Competition.
Hosted by the radio station Lightning 100, the competition is meant to support budding artists and help listeners discover emerging talent. Nashville artists are chosen to battle it out on-air and online as they vie for the title of Music City Mayhem champions. Fans and listeners vote to determine who wins the grand prize, which includes a coveted Music City Mayhem trophy and an extensive artist development and promotion package.
The finalists have been narrowed down to just four from 430-plus submissions. The competition wraps up on Thursday with a live show at 3rd & Lindsley with in-person and online voting starting at 6 p.m. and ending shortly after the show.
“I first learned about this competition a year ago when I had only been in Nashville for 6 months,” Scherer said. “I remember thinking ‘that would be incredible to be a part of,’ so it’s surreal to now be a finalist. The show at 3rd & Lindsley will be the biggest show I’ve ever played!”
Scherer, a College of Saint Rose graduate, previously released “Garden Bed,” a dreamy and at times ethereal album that reflects on her college years.
