Third Eye Blind
Since 1997, San Francisco’s Third Eye Blind have recorded four best-selling albums and assembled one career retrospective. 3EB will release ‘Dopamine’, their first studio collection in six years, in Spring 2015. Led by Stephan Jenkins, 3EB won wide success during a tumultuous group of years when the major-label recording industry was finally losing its grip on an enterprise that for decades it had dominated with steely efficiency. Nothing could have made 3EB happier! 3EB, however, have experienced no comparable loss. Instead, they have gained artistic clarification — and, surprisingly, a fan base who is larger, younger and more dedicated than ever.
Participation in the older, untouchable realm of nervous star-making could color a band’s identity. In the case of 3EB, it often blurred the perception of their brilliant musical creations. In recent years, those creations have recast the band among a current generation of fans.
3EB now write, tour, record, and communicate in a fluid new world where their music continues naturally to evolve. Their exchange with their audience is unfiltered and being from the hub of tech, they are using it to develop a closer exchange with their audience.
In a strange yet very real way, Last Of The Great Pretenders could just as easily be called Meet Matt Nathanson.
Sure, Matt Nathanson has been making his good name as a recording artist and live performer for years now. Yet with Last Of The Great Pretenders — Nathanson’s latest and greatest effort to date — he has made a very conscious artistic decision to open up and offer far and away the most personal, deeply felt music of his life. The many fans who Nathanson gained with his last two popular studio albums, 2007’s Some Mad Hope — which featured his breakthrough hit “Come On Get Higher” — and 2011’s Modern Love can finally now get to know and love this gifted singer-songwriter in a whole new way. In other words, there’s some real blood on these tracks.
With its current single “Hurricane” in rotation, Lifehouse is no stranger to Las Vegas stages or its airwaves. Originating from Los Angeles the band is comprised of Jason Wade (lead vocals, guitar), Bryce Soderberg(Bass, vocals) and Rick Woolstenhulme, Jr. (drums, percussion) The band came to mainstream prominence in 2001 with the hit single “Hanging by a Moment” from their debut studio album, No Name Face. The song was #1 for three weeks on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and the single won a Billboard Music Award for Hot 100 Single of the Year, having spent
twenty weeks in the top 10 and more than a year on the charts.
In 2002, Lifehouse released their follow-up album Stanley Climbfall. Since then, they have released five more albums: the eponymous Lifehouse in 2005, Who We Are in 2007, Smoke and Mirrors in 2010, Almería in 2012 and Out of the Wasteland in 2015. These albums have spawned the singles “You and Me”, “First Time”, and “Whatever It Takes”, which have all been top 40 hits in the US.
The past few years have seen NEEDTOBREATHE touring relentlessly, crisscrossing the country on multiple headlining tours, playing standout sets at major festivals like Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits, and performing throughout Europe (which included a personal highlight of opening for Sting in France). They’ve experienced the departure of their longtime drummer and a harrowing band scuffle that landed one member in the emergency room, but have also seen the birth of Bo’s first child and found a sincere reconciliation between brothers. Rivers In the Wasteland balances a palpable tension between two very different songwriters with a sense of brotherhood and shared voices. The album reveals that truly honest and authentic music can only come when everyone in the band believes in the same thing. For the musicians, the hope is that the songs inspire their fans and emphasize how committed NEEDTOBREATHE is to doing what they love in a way that doesn’t compromise anything.
Los Angeles-born, New York-raised singer-songwriter Andy Grammer has gone from hustling street performer on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade to platinum-selling recording artist. With his 2011 self-titled debut album, Andy became the first male pop star in a decade, since John Mayer in 2002, to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first two singles, “Keep Your Head Up“ and “Fine By Me,” certified platinum and gold respectively. Andy’s second album, 2014’s critically acclaimed Magazines or Novels, continues his disarming success with his current platinum single “Honey, I’m Good.” – a clever new twist on the traditional love song – which continues to rack up millions of streams and climb the Billboard Hot 100 while simultaneously hitting #1 on Adult Pop Radio and iTunes pop.

Season 14 American Idol winner Nick Fradiani! There are many people who subscribe to the “10,000 hour rule” as a guidepost to success: the more you do something, the better you get at it. If you do reach the 10,000 milestone, it is believed that you’ve mastered something. Nick Fradiani has been playing guitar and singing since he was about ten years old; if he isn’t at the 10k mark yet, he’s awfully close.
Nick grew up in suburban Connecticut, the oldest child of a teacher mom and a musician dad. Music was always part of the household as Nick recalls, “Before I could talk, my dad said I’d hum along to music.” It wasn’t long before Nick Sr. could tell that Nick Jr. had the bug. “My dad was my musical tour-guide, so he laid the groundwork for the type of music I liked. I never listened to any kid’s music, I gravitated toward The Beatles, Billy Joel, Elton John and Tom Petty. My father gave me my first guitar because he could see I wanted to play along with what I waslistening to. He taught me the basics and I took off from there.”
