Funky Nashville is the sound of the dead-dry silence of the desert mixed with the roar of the sea. It is the whiz from the never ending highway, and it's the moment between night and day where anything can happen. Funky Nashville captures body and soul through melodiuos pop songs supported by crisp funky beats, and sprinkled with elements of country, rock'n'roll, soul and blues. One groovy mixture that creates that special Funky Nashville sound.
The three members of Funky Nashville started playing together in 1997 in a band called Weatherbeat. Under this name they released a few EP's, had a couple of songs with massive airplay, and toured around Denmark playing festival- and club gigs. Despite the success the band never got to release an actual album, and Weatherbeat came to an end in 2000.
In 2001 Mazanti, Engelhardt and Nielsen got together again, and inspired from different journeys all over the world, they wrote a whole lot of new songs with a new sound and new energy - more attentive than ever. Funky Nashville was born.
In 2003 Funky Nashville released their first album, "A Good Day to Drive".
In 2004/2005 Funky Nashville had two songs on the soundtrack of German movie "Männer Wie Wir", and one song on the soundtrack of American movie "The Long Weekend". Furthermore they had a music video on the Samsung D500 cell phone.
The members of Funky Nashville are:
Sverre Stein Nielsen - lead vocals and acoustic guitar.
