“Indulge your senses and go on an adventure with HAUM Nashville. Sound vibrations move through your body, creating waves of relaxation, restoration and revelations. During this seated or laying down sound journey, some people see shapes and colors, have spirit animals visit, connection to inner child, future self- some people just get a nice physical battery recharge. Various crystal & Tibetan bowls, chimes & gongs wash over your body, leaving you with an internal glow."
Rebecca founded the Sound Bath speakeasy, HAUM in 2012. Having completed extensive training E-ryt 500, prenatal/post natal and Ayurvedic Counselor training through Sanctuary Yoga, growing up around family paving the way in mental health, heavy corporate world tidings and international travels including living in India, she cultivated a unique practice which combines all the senses and many healing modalities for ultimate anxiety and stress relief as well as adventure and growth. HAUM has grown to include incredible Sound Practitioners to engage you with Guided Musical Meditations and Sound Baths.
Samantha Zaruba is a mixed media artist and art empowerment teacher interested in how self-constructed narratives and media consumption impact human beings on a cellular and collective level.

studying Art at UMass Amherst.
Her work has been featured in publications (Out Voices Nashville, "Best Visual Artist" - Nashville Scene’s Best of Nashville, NPR’s Today in Nashville), galleries (Cëcret, COOP, Turnip Green) and album covers (Ron Gallo, Naked Giants).
Zaruba is the creator of Paint Your Noodz, a personalized and empowering paint & sip art experience. In her role as a business owner and visual artist, she utilizes her platform and passion for community organizing to raise funds and organize events for causes that align with her commitments.
Born in Birmingham, Alabama, JON BYRD lived his formative years in small town America, deep in the piney woods of south Alabama just one county over from the birthplace of legendary country artist Hank Williams. In the 90s Jon became pivotal in Atlanta’s storied Redneck Underground music scene. Always a featured sideman, Jon’s first solo recording didn’t come along until after migrating to Music City nearly 20 years ago.
Jon’s fourth solo album DIRTY OL’ RIVER harkens back to the first Byrd’s Auto Parts record: up-tempo country songs, lots of pedal steel, and some really strong country covers. Jon’s originals “I Get Lost” and “If Texas Is So Great” will be heard for years to come.

He was also a curator and artist-in-residence at Brown Rice (2008-2012), an art space for listening in Chicago, IL.
Broken Champion is a band based on a true story. They’re great sometimes but not always. A lot of shit has happened to them, and some of it is rough. Every time something great was supposed to happen, it rained Without their music, they’d never make it. Any musician can join the Champs if they are so inclined - just contact us and we’ll let you know the place and time.
Marco With Love’s Cosmic Italian American Rock ‘N’ Roll music has a vibrant sound that gives a nod to influences such as The Byrds, Little Richard, The Flying Burrito Brothers, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. The talented multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter, producer, and label owner has built an impressive resume over the past 15 years.
The MWL band spent time touring behind their “Smothered & Covered” LP, playing to enthusiastic crowds throughout NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Nashville, Boston, Toronto, London and beyond. Marco Argiro has been a recognized name in music scenes both foreign and domestic for years.
Hailing from Nashville,TN, Lord Goldie, also known as Karizma (a monicher aptly coined for her charismatic stage presence), has been a creative, an artist and an iconoclast since birth. In a town that has historically turned its back on the hip hop community, Lord Goldie exists in an authentic space that fuses underground hip hop, soul, and rock. During her formative years, Goldie was equally as inspired by Linkin Park, Jimi Hendrix, and Nirvana as she was by Jay-Z, Tupac, Queen Latifah, and UGK.
It is now no surprise that she is well-versed in cross-genre collaboration and marrying distinct sounds into a cohesive story. Lord Goldie has carved a niche in the greater Nashville area, thus enabling her to release meaningful content consistently. This multi-hyphenate raps, writes, produces, and manages, offering creative direction to up-and-coming independent artists like herself.
Eve Maret is a Nashville-based experimental artist and composer who employs a wide array of electronic media and techniques in her various disciplines, exploring the possibilities of personal and communal healing through creative action. Drawing inspiration from nineteenth-century orchestral and choral works, the Fluxus movement, Kosmische Musik and funk, Eve makes use of digital and analog synthesizers, clarinet, electric bass, acoustic drums, and more to create works that range from lush cinematic compositions to space techno.
Eve has released six solo albums since 2016, most recently New Noise on Curious Music. Her music has been reviewed by WIRE Magazine, Bandcamp Daily, and the Chicago Reader. Eve has toured across the US as well as internationally, where she has performed alongside Matmos, Amulets, Lydia Lunch, Sun Araw, and JEFF The Brotherhood, among others. In 2018, Eve co-founded Hyasynth House, an electronic music collective for femme and non-binary artists. She continues to organize events and organize workshops to empower marginalized groups in Nashville and beyond.
