Charlotte Sands brings her first ever headline tour to an emotional close in her loved hometown of Nashville


To know Charlotte Sands is to love her. The bright and spunky artist brought to The Basement East on Saturday night for a very heartfelt closing show. After playing her way through twenty-eight other cities, the Love and Other Lies Tour finally made its way home to where it all began in the first place.

Two of Music City’s best and brightest artists on the rise helped Sands kick off the night. Starting out with a set played by the musical act Veaux. The three piece band did a beyond amazing job at warming up the crowd. Going from chatting back and forth with those on the rail to keeping the hype in the room alive with tracks like “Moonlight Sugar” and “Tell Me That You Love Me”, it was impossible not to become a fan. Shortly after Veaux, out came the one and only John Harvie. Still dressed in his Sunday Best, having just come from one of his best friends’ weddings. The undeniably talented Harvie took to the Basement East stage. He was met by the warmest of welcomes as his electric personality always seems to brighten up any room he walks into. Playing some of his most loved tracks like “Bleach (On the Rocks)” where the crowd had a blast singing back the filler words after John so graciously taught them their cue. It’s needless to say but Charlotte did an amazing job at picking the openers for the show. Both acts received the utmost love from her fans. Anyone who did not know either Veaux or John Harvie before the show was certainly leaving with two new acts to add to their playlists.

10pm finally rolled around and out came the long awaited Charlotte Sands. Most widely known for her work with The Maine, the 26 year old artist kicked off the set with a song called “Tantrum.” To nobody’s surprise, nearly everyone in the crowd knew the words and sang right along with her. The crowd full of adoring fans, old friends, and of course, Charlotte’s loved ones did a wonderful job at filling the venue up with the utmost love and support. Beyond just being a hometown show, Sands made sure to let us know that this show meant the world to her for so many different reasons. After touring with The Maine and Yungblud, the artist was finally able to hold her first ever headline tour. Crossing a few things off her bucket list at once, she was able to not only play the beloved Basement East which was a dream of hers but it was one of, if not the only sold out shows on the tour. It didn’t take very long for Sands to get choked up as she went on to play more of her music. About half way through the set, Charlotte took a break to slow things down. Letting us know that she was going to play an older song, that she did not expect anyone to know the words and yet– once it started, everyone in there was singing right along with her. It was evident that night that Charlotte has made a lasting impact on so many people. The love her fans carry for her is something very heartwarming. With new music set to release in January, Sands is only going up from here. It was an honor to see her perform in our shared hometown.
