A Walking Contradiction.

Introducing Joel & The Gents // Ladies and gentlemen, this is my ridiculously talented and good-looking band. We take ourselves seriously. But not too seriously. Be on the lookout for our EP dropping soon! Props to @matthewsimmonsphoto for the photo. #southernfunk #southernfunkEP #joelandthegents #mischiefmanaged #models #lurking #meanmugging #funkrock #stank #squaready
Back At It // Nashville, TN. Starting this Thursday night, #Joelandthegents are back and bringing the groove! Catch us at The 5 Spot Thurs, Mayday Brewery in Murfreesboro on Saturday, and keep an eye out for more announcements, especially regarding our EP release! It’s gonna be a fun couple months y’all. #southernfunk #southernfunkEP #stank #getyourgrooveon #squaready  (at The 5 Spot)
Two Face // 12 South, Nashville. Two-faced is one thing this dude isn’t. An extremely talented photographer, shameless nerd (check out his new zip on his feed), and an extremely good-looking and single dude (ladies). Also he’s a super solid friend. Stoked to know him. #bw #light #shadow #frothymonkey #model #hotguys #nerdscanbehottoo #legendofzeldafolyfe #vsco #vscocam #squaready  (at The Frothy Monkey)
Case Study // 8th Ave, Nashville. Glad I got to hang with my cousin and girlfriend in from Portland last week! They’re both stupid talented bluegrass and Western swing players and artists. Went shopping with em, way out of my depth. Violins are crazy, yall. #violins #fiddles #theviolinstore #200yearoldinstruments #20kdollars #vsco #vscocam #squaready  (at The Violin Shop)
"Morning" // My bed, TN. Late gigs in Lexington, KY and even later arrival times equals morning happening in the afternoon. No shame. #4AM #stillgot6hours #recovery #wrinkles #loft #threecheersforACvents #vsco #vscocam #squaready  (at The Bed)
Jack // @theflipside12s, Nashville. Come sit on our open air porch and let this fine fellow make you a nice Georgia Ice Pick or a draft beer! Also, go check out his band, Jack Berry and Loaded Loot. #flipside #postmoreportraits #retro #restaurantbiz #12South #KnowYourNeighborhood #vsco #vscocam #squaready  (at The Flipside 12s)
Stoked // #supperandsong, Nashville, TN. This is my dude @russtattoos. One of the most solid and genuine dudes I know, and a freaking awesome tattooer and even better friend and brother. Love you man! Go look him up for all your tattooing needs. #russhickman #brothers #beardedguys #tattooeddudes #pantswall #handtatsandwarmhats #squaready  (at imogene + willie)
Buds // @theflipside12s, Nashville, TN. Birthday work hangs with my man @josiahcarrmusic. Love this dude. #buds #flipside #cheesin #selfiez #comehangatcryingwolftonight (at The Flipside 12s)
I finished a thing… // Grace & Glory Tattoo, Murfreesboro, TN. Shoutout to my man @russtattoos for doing a BOMB job on this piece. Finally complete, and on to the next one. Excuse my nipples. #excuse #my #nipples #dontclickthat #tattoo #traditional #normancollins #sailorjerry #iwillgowhereyoulead #”muscles”  (at Grace & Glory Tattoo)
Nashville Is Burning // Bonfire Town, USA. It’s starting to feel like fall, and we had a bonfire. We burned an effigy. RIP PBR. #RIPPBR #nashville #welcometonashville #doyouseeher? #vsco #vscocam #squaready
