Wildskins
Thursday, September17

“This is the closest thing to a real band and real sound the world has seen in a long time, no gimmicks, just talent and creativity.”  The sounds that come from these guys and girls is one that will put you in a place you can only dream of. Resembling bands and acts such as the Jimi Hendrix experience to Fleetwood Mac and beyond, The Wildskins are leading the revolution that bridges the gap between yesterday and today.

Wisewater
Thursday, October 29

WISEWATER is quickly establishing itself as a fresh voice in the music scene. Formed in early 2014, they have spent much of the year touring across the country.  Wisewater is Forrest O’Connor (vocals/mandolin/zouktar), Kate Lee (vocals/fiddle), and Jim Shirey (vocals/guitar). Their debut EP, The Demonstration, is hailed as “beautifully poetic” and reached #13 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts.

Straun Shields
Thursday, December 10

Though only twenty-one, Straun Shields is already building himself a solid story.  He has seen his EP reach #1 in the Singer/Songwriter charts on iTunes and #67 overall, been heard on MTV’s The Real World, performed for sold out audiences in his hometown of Arlington, Virginia, and performed with artists such as Parachute and The Downtown Fiction.  Shields’ songwriting features hooky melodies that have listeners singing along, combined with lyrical depth—a breath of fresh air in pop music.  If his past is any indication of what’s to come, Shields has a bright future ahead of him.
