Alt / Indie rock


Vocalist Micah Smith, guitarist Alex Ingram, guitarist Jacob Walker, bassist Chris Graham, and drummer Sanders Reid are Empty Atlas, an earnest yet disarming indie rock band from Jackson, Mississippi. The band began in its current incarnation in 2012, evolving greatly since its humble start as a solo act for singer Smith and bringing together fans of multiple musical genres.

Having released two digital EPs on iTunes in consecutive years, 2012’s “Merit” and 2013’s “Vultures,” Empty Atlas has continually developed its brand of melodic songwriting. Alternating between spacious acoustic guitar and driving electric, Empty Atlas can be at once inviting and biting as it weaves dynamic stories of self-discovery.
