THE NAUTICAL THEME
Based in Dayton, OH, The Nautical Theme was formed in March of 2017 by Tesia Mallory (vocals, keys) and Matt Shetler (vocals, guitar). The duo loves to write, record, and perform their original music that could be classified as modern folk, Americana, or indie. With a focus on melodies and harmonies based around straightfoward songwriting and arrangements, they hope their songs connect with those that have open ears and hearts. "Float", the band's debut album, was released in April of 2018 and gained critical and listener praise, finding it's way into Don Thrasher's top 20 releases of Dayton in that same year. The Nautical Theme has been performing regionally, playing in over a dozen cities throughout Ohio and Kentucky. The band looks forward to releasing their second album in 2019 and continues to enjoy every opportunity they have to play and share their music.
