Sounds From The Underground was formed in February of 2012 by Jacob Deaton...who had realized after countless late night talks with Atlanta-based musicians that more venues were needed to support art based music. As we celebrate a year that featured over 40 different composers and hundreds of musicians we've decided to celebrate! From Feb 11th-16th Elliott Street Pub will feature the best acts of this year PLUS brand new acts yet to be seen by audiences to celebrate the year gone by and the the years to come! Be apart of the movement in ATL! Creative music lives HERE! ***Trey Wright*** Trey Wright is a jazz guitarist, composer, and recording artist based in Roswell, Ga.
