The record label’s first release – Nashville singer/songwriter Nathan Beaver’s Universal You – went on sale June 28. The album, which includes the hit single “Clever,” is Beaver’s second studio record. His first, Point B, was released in 2004.
Lenz is no stranger to music, having produced concerts for the city and benefits at Eddie’s Attic for a number of years, including the 2008 show by Drive by Truckers front man Patterson Hood, which brought thousands to the Decatur Square.
Red Eye Gravy Records plans to sign additional artists to the label in the coming months, with goals of national distribution and promotion. “We have big plans for this new venture,” said Lenz.
