Sarah Darling, Jamie Floyd, Nicole Witt & Michael Logen Form New Nashville Group, The Six One Five Collective

What happens when four highly talented Nashville solo artists and songwriters come together and form a group well into each of their respective careers?  They call it The Six One Five Collective and go make some musical magic. 

The Six One Five Collective — composed of award-winning songwriter/artists Jamie Floyd, Michael Logen, Nicole Witt, and Sarah Darling — have unveiled themselves to the world and released its acoustic cover of The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights,” the first track from the group’s upcoming debut EP called Coastin'. 

Steeped in the Music City mix of country, Americana, folk and pop (615 is Nashville’s area code), the sound of Six One Five Collective is an undeniable wall of distinctive harmonies and solo voices reminiscent of great American bands like Fleetwood Mac, and Little Big Town. 

The Six One Five Collective’s roadshow is an eclectic mix of original solo music, hit songs they've written for household names like Kelly Clarkson, Kesha, George Strait, Lee Brice, Ingrid Andress, Marc Broussard, and Sister Hazel (as well as several TV shows such as “Nashville” and “Parenthood”), and high energy songs that are the “Six One Five sound.” Its four members have toured around the world opening for John Legend, India Arie, John Hiatt, Kenny Chesney, and others. They've played the Grand Ole Opry stage, C2C and have toured extensively overseas. They are nationally-awarded artists and songwriters with three Grammy nominations and an IBMA Song of the Year honor.

The Six One Five Collective’s six-track debut EP Coastin’ is slated for release on Sept. 16, 2022.
