So as a singer songwriter I think that there are some definite places that an artist should go. Places like the Rock and Roll hall of fame, Jimi Hendrix’s grave, Strawberry Fields in Central Park, and Nashville - Music City. By the way, there are way more places that I think an artist should visit, but I’m just naming a few here. If you have any cool suggestions, please add some in the comment section.
So I finally got the chance to go to Nashville this year. I promised myself that I would start travelling more and start getting my music further out than just Detroit. I hear that Nashville is the place to be if you’re a songwriter. It’s kind of like how L.A. is for actors. It’s true too. There are songwriters everywhere you go and a lot of country! I’m not going to lie though. There’s just something about Nashville that is so inviting.
I drove down to with 2 complete strangers through a Craigslist rideshare (more on that later) and when we got into town we didn’t have a place to stay or know what was going on. I had some hookups in the city that fell through and we were kind of scrambling to find us a place. I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to get a hotel room but finally got one.
I just got my music reviewed by The Impaler Speaks. It was a great interview. Check out what he had to say...

and now on to the review....
"I discovered Emilio Basa in late summer 2012, and have spent countless hours with this record since then. He has a new EP - ‘Testify’ - coming out tomorrow. Don’t miss out on this cat’s music. Seriously.
I'm featured on the Bud and Roach Wake and Bake Playlist! I talked to Roach last week on the phone and look out for an interview coming soon. I remember I sent them a short video of me playing in my kitchen and now I'm on the their show. That's pretty cool.
