Cause A Scene was founded in January 2012 in Nashville, Tennessee, by Larry Kloess, with a list of family, friends, and supporters too lengthy to begin to list. (Thank you all!) We are by no means professional writers – far from it in fact – but we have have a deep passion for discovering artists and helping others discover something new. That’s really why Cause A Scene exists – to explore the wonders of music and champion bands and artists on the rise. There is an inherent joy in music, and we plan on celebrating that joy with every post. Really, we hope to be the place that you come to in order to discover great new music.

Over the course of Cause A Scene’s first four years of existence, we have hosted, curated, promoted, and thoroughly enjoyed nearly 200 shows in the greater Nashville area, with around 700 artists from all over the world in houses large and small, non-traditional venues like Nisolo, Scout’s Barbershop, Blood:Water Mission, Glasgow Music, Ausden Inc, photography studios, art galleries, and venues such as Mercy Lounge, High Watt, The Basement, 3rd & Lindsley, 12th & Porter and Edgehill Cafe. It’s been a wild ride, for sure!
