Decca Records/UK will partner with Nashville’s Whiskey Jam on June 7 to present some of the label’s newest artists. The free show begins at 7:30 p.m. Confirmed artists are Rhys Lewis and newly formed duo Ida Mae from the United Kingdom, as well as John & Jacob of Birmingham, Alabama, and Betti, a Nashville resident.

Rebecca Allen, Managing Director, Decca Records/UK, said the label has a passion for artists that “do things differently, distinctly, excellently and defiantly.” She added, “I believe this credo explains the strength of the bond between London and Nashville’s music communities, and why we chose to have this first of its kind concert in Nashville. Our team has long had an interest in and connection with all of the types of music that come out of this area. Likewise we found a kindred sprit with the great music that can be found on any given night at a Whiskey Jam presentation.”

“We are very excited to have boots on the ground in Nashville.
