Meet Year Of October

Year of October is an on-the-rise independent band based out of Nashville that has heavily featured on CBW Radio over the past three weeks, but who exactly are they?

Introduced to CBW Radio via the Independent Spotlight during The Rock Revival, Year of October has quickly become a fan favorite amongst listeners of the station. Capturing both a classic rock and modern sound, Year of October’s featured tracks off of Wastelands have found a home on Fridays as well as regular CBW Programing. Upon reaching out to the band, I was able to secure further information about this incredible act and just who they are.

Who is Year of October?

Year of October is Phlecia Sullivan, Josh Sullivan, and James Varner.” The band was formed by Phlecia and Josh While attending the University of Kentucky in 2010. The name comes from “When Phlecia and I (Josh) first started playing music… I was playing acoustic guitar and she was singing and it had a campfire music kind of vibe. Phlecia came up with the name based on that feeling of fall.”

How would you describe your sound?

“We’d describe our sound as fuzz, rock, soul. I would say that our music combines rock, soul, and blues; We’ve put out 4 records now and each record has continued to change and evolve (our sound)”

Who have been your biggest influences?

“We like a lot of different music, Some of our favorites include Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Amy Winehouse, Black Sabbath, Jack White, Dead Weather, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, The Budos Band, and Charles Bradley.”

Year of October can be heard regularly on CBW Radio where Josh describes, “It’s definitely an honor for us to be showcased… It’s an awesome station and we are truly very thankful.” As well as on any major streaming service such as Spotify or iTunes.

You can also catch Year of October live in Nashville, TN at Drifter’s BBQ on May 14th as well as Kimbro’s in Franklin, TN on May 25th!

Grey’s Anatomy Quotes That Never Get Old

If we’ve learned anything after watching 16 full seasons of Grey’s Anatomy,  it’s that the surgeons at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital have a way with words. Whether you’re in the midst of heartbreak or in need of a pep talk, take a look at these quotes that touch on love, loss, friendship, and the stress of everyday life. (And if you’re a true fan, challenge yourself by figuring out which episode each quote is from … before binge-watching the series for the hundredth time to confirm your answers.)

Cristina Yang

Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you need. He’s very dreamy, but he’s not the sun. You are.

Meredith Grey

I love you, in a really really big, pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.

Amelia Shepherd

And if you can’t do it, if you aren’t willing to keep looking for light in the darkest of places without stopping, even when it seems impossible, you will never succeed.

Cristina Yang

Oh screw beautiful! I’m brilliant! If you want to appease me, compliment my brain.

Derek Shepherd

You were like coming up for fresh air. It’s like I was drowning and you saved me.

Owen Hunt

The only time I don’t feel like a ghost is when you look at me, because when you look at me, you see me. You see me. This is me.

Meredith Grey

There’s an end to every storm. Once all the trees have been uprooted. Once all the houses have been ripped apart. The wind will hush, the clouds will part, the rain will stop, the sky will clear in an instant. But only then, in those quiet moments after the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it.

Richard Webber

It’s good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose.

Meredith Grey

As human beings, sometimes it’s better to stay in the dark, because in the dark there may be fear, but there is also hope.

Cristina Yang

You are my person. You will always be my person.

Alex Karev

It doesn’t matter how tough we are. Trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives. Trauma messes everybody up. But maybe that’s the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all that is what keeps us moving forward. It’s what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.

Callie Torres

Please, don’t chase me anymore, unless you’re ready to catch me.

Meredith Grey

Change … we don’t like it, we fear it. But we can’t stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow. Anybody who tells you it doesn’t, is lying. But here’s the truth: Sometimes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes, change is good. Sometimes, change is … everything

Derek Shepherd

Breakthroughs don’t happen because of the medicine. Real breakthroughs happen because someone is scared to death to stop trying.

Meredith Grey

Not all wounds are superficial. Most wounds run deeper than we can imagine. You can’t see them with the naked eye. And then, there are the wounds that take us by surprise. The trick with any kind of wound or disease, is to dig down and find the real source of the injury. And once you’ve found it … try like hell to heal that sucker.
