Empty Atlas
Indie Rock from Brandon MS

Mississippi is a state known for its storytellers. That certainly applies to its rich history of groundbreaking musicians, but not all of these fall in the realms of roots genres like blues and Americana, and not all of them are in the past.

Formed in central Mississippi in 2014, independent act Empty Atlas packs poignant narratives of personal growth and life experiences into intensely catchy and gripping melodic indie-rock music.

The band has shared the stage with national touring acts such as Broadside, Secret Stuff, Cardinal Sons, Ivadell, Hodera and Young Natives, and worked with producers such as Joe Causey (Colony House, Steven Curtis Chapman) and Eric Woolard (For a Season, Courier).

Lyricist and vocalist Micah Smith fronts the outfit, which released its debut full-length album, “Hestia,” in December 2016, shortly before bassist Alex Ingram, guitarist Brennan Michael White and drummer Bobby Hansford joined the group.

Smith began writing “Hestia,” a follow-up to Empty Atlas’s 2014 double-EP, “Anniversary,” shortly after he and his wife married and moved into their first house, which inspired the central theme of the album – home, and what that concept can mean to others. However, “Hestia” steers clear of love songs entirely, opting instead for stories of self-discovery and human connection.

Empty Atlas is currently performing throughout their state and the region to promote the album, while also preparing new material for a sophomore full-length.
