Born in Lexington, MA and now based in San Francisco, Matt Nathanson has evolved into one of the premier songwriters and dynamic performers on the music scene today with hits like “Run,” “Heart Starts,” “Loud” and his platinum selling “Come On Get Higher.” His music has been used extensively in television programs such as Private Practice and Vampire Diaries, and Nathanson himself has appeared on shows like Ellen, Late Night with David Letterman and The CMA Awards. The album Modern Love debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and topped the iTunes Pop Chart. Nathanson’s ninth, and latest, studio recording, Last of the Great Pretenders, features the hit “Mission Bells.” The album marks a dramatic progression for the acclaimed artist, who has created a richer and deeper work both musically and lyrically than any of his previous LPs. The album debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top 200. Nathanson stirs his material with deftly placed pop-cultural references and vivid details drawn from his keen observations of everyday life, while topping each song with an emphatic and seductive chorus hook.
Beloved by fans for his blue-eyed soul vocals, freewheeling melodies, and earthy charm, singer, songwriter, and musician Gavin DeGraw has enjoyed success since his breakthrough debut album, Chariot. The album sold over a million copies, earned platinum certification, and yielded three hit singles: the number 1 Top 40 smash “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through,” and the title-track, “Chariot.” DeGraw followed that up with his self-titled second album, which debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in 2008 (earning Gavin his first Top 10 album and spawning the hit singles “In Love With A Girl” and the gold-certified “We Belong Together.”) Gavin also received a Grammy nomination for his 2013 hit “We Both Know.” His powerful new album Make a Move represents a victorious and creative renaissance, displaying focused vocal and artistic talent, assured energy, an expanded musical palette and sharp, detail-driven lyrics. DeGraw has toured the globe, performing sold-out headlining shows as well as festivals, while also supporting megabands like Maroon 5. DeGraw’s commitment to his personal style and lyrics makes him a compelling artist who connects with listeners both on his albums and through his live appearances.
