About the Artists
After putting out their third album Native—a 2013 release that debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and has sold over 5 million units worldwide—OneRepublic spent more than two years traveling the world in a series of sold-out tours. During that time, the Grammy Award-nominated quintet hit 154 cities in 26 countries and—true to their standing as a singularly global rock band—drew major musical inspiration from each place they visited. As lead singer/songwriter Ryan Tedder transformed that inspiration into new songwriting material, OneRepublic soon began the brilliantly whirlwind process of recording their fourth album all across the planet.
The follow-up to Native (whose host of smash singles include “Counting Stars,” a #1 hit in 54 countries), Oh My My came to life in nearly 20 cities around the world, including Rio, Moscow, Mexico City, Tokyo, Paris, and London. From track to track, OneRepublic—which features bassist Brent Kutzle, guitarists Zach Filkins and Drew Brown, and drummer Eddie Fisher—parallel the extraordinary scope of the album’s creation by blending alt-rock, gospel, synth-pop, nu-disco, and folk. With its abundance of sweeping, stadium-ready anthems, Oh My My shapes those eclectic elements into songs built on both masterfully expansive arrangements and bravely intimate lyrics.
Lindsey Stirling remains fearless enough to always dream big. In four years since the release of her 2012 self-titled debut, the electronic music impresario, classically trained violinist, dancer, and artist quietly and humbly became one of the 21st century’s most innovative stars by clinging to her groundbreaking vision of cinematic violin-driven electronic music. After bowing at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Dance/Electronic Album Chart, holding #1 on the Classical Album Chart for 21 consecutive weeks, and receiving a Billboard Music Award for “Top Dance/Electronic Album,” her sophomore opus Shatter Me would not only garner an RIAA Gold certification, but it would rank as the #2 Dance/Electronic Album and #1 Classical Album on Billboard’s 2015 Year-End charts. Attracting nearly 8 million subscribers and 1.3 billion-plus views on YouTube by 2016, Forbes placed Lindsey at #4 on its yearly YouTube artists list, making her the highest-ranked female. Her headline tours would play to a cumulative audience of over 500,000 people worldwide, and her literary debut The Only Pirate at the Party—co-written with her sister Brook S. Passey—became a New York Times Bestseller.
Four-time Grammy nominees The Fray –Isaac Slade (vocals, piano), Joe King (guitar, vocals), Ben Wysocki (drums) and David Welsh (guitar) –were signed to Epic Records in 2004, after their first two indie released EPs had gathered strong radio airplay, and won them a widespread organic grassroots following around their native Denver. The Fray rose to prominence when their debut single “Over My Head (Cable Car)” became a Top 10 hit in 2005. The next year, “How to Save a Life” was heavily used in a promotional campaign for ABC’s Grey’s Anatomyand both singles were subsequently certified 5x-platinum by the RIAA. Their debut album How to Save a Life was named the best-selling digital album to date. Their 2009 self-titled RIAA platinum second album featured the back-to-back hits “You Found Me” (4x-platinum) and “Never Say Never” (platinum). Scars & Stories (2012), included their RIAA gold single “Heartbeat.” Their most recent studio album, 2014’s Helios, was produced by Stuart Price (the Killers, Madonna) & Ryan Tedder (One Republic). It carved out new directions for the Fray, and included their RIAA gold Top 10 hit, “Love Don’t Die.” The Fray have sold over 4 million albums and over 20 million singles worldwide.
We The Kings, led by Travis Clark along with Hunter Thomsen, Danny Duncan, Charles Trippy, and Coley O’Toole debuted in 2007. This group of high school friends hail from Bradenton, Florida, and are no strangers to the rock scene. Their hits “Check Yes Juliet” went platinum off their self-titled album topping the Billboard Top 100 Chart, and “Say You Like Me” went gold from their studio album Sunshine State of Mind. “Sad Song,” off of their latest album “So Far”, amassed an astounding 50 million views on YouTube. We The Kings played the Warped Tour main stage during Summer 2016, and is on the road in support of this release.
