Originally launched as Patrick Cornell’s side project in 2019, Salemtown became Patrick’s main project by 2020 during the Covid-19 lockdown in Nashville. Named after the Salemtown neighborhood of Nashville, TN where Patrick was quarantined, he began collaborating with different songwriters to create a fresh, country sound that stemmed from his library of instrumental demos, lyrical ideas and song titles. The result was fusing clever and authentic lyric-driven country songwriting with production that combines the trappings of the country sound with pop, hip-hop and dance music elements.
Salemtown’s debut single, Pretty Wild, was released in 2021. Since then, Salemtown songs have been featured on a number of Spotify editorial playlists including New Music Nashville, Heartland Country, PopCo, Fresh Finds, Fresh Finds Country, Next from Nashville, Wild County and New Boots, among others across DSPs.
In July of 2022 Salemtown signed with booking agency Degy Booking for college performances.
In October 2022, Salemtown was voted “Best Band in Nashville” by the Nashville Scene Magazine readers poll.
In November 2022, Salemtown signed on to be Brand Ambassadors with Pivotal Moments Media advocating for mental health and are looking forward to partnering with them on projects that highlight and help provide solutions for mental health issues in our society.
Patrick performs as Salemtown both solo acoustically and full band with a revolving cast of Nashville sidemen.
