We're excited for you to get to know our featured artists. Take a look at the talented individuals that will provide the musical stylings for the day.
Coming off an 80+ city college tour, bluesy-pop singer/songwriter, Noah Guthrie, is ready to take the U.S. by storm in 2014 to promote his debut album, Among the Wildest Things. Born and raised in South Carolina, Noah grew up in a home filled with music. Always singing around the house, Noah credits his dad for teaching him to learn his true voice and hone his gift. When he was fourteen, Noah received his first guitar and started writing songs. As a practiced musician on the bass, guitar, and trumpet by the time he was 13, everyone around him knew early on that he had an innate gift, and after his first performance in front of people at age 13, he was already dubbed an 'old soul' and true talent. One of his earlier written songs (at 16,) even made the album.
Highwire will entertain you with a combination of anthems from 70's, 80's, and 90's bringing to life the way the songs should be played. Boastful..maybe slightly, but when you want something done right...do it yourself.
Somewhere south of the Mason-Dixon line, there's a beat—a rhythm that thuds in the heart and soul of the south. A beat that surrounds late night bonfires, starry skies, and muddy tires. A beat that resounds in every bar, every car, and every person who's ever taken a dirt road.
That beat, which fuels the revolution of Country music, also resounds in the music of Olivia Albertson. Coming from the heart of North Carolina, Olivia Albertson not only knows this beat, but she writes it. With a voice as bright and smooth as a summer breeze through dixie, and lyrics that are straightforward and lighthearted, Olivia's music is spirited with the soul of the south.
Olivia Albertson's music is the soundtrack to the perfect southern night, complete with pure vocals and southern country influence.
