Enter Here For Your Chance To Win

Courrier

This alternative-Rock band from Austin, Texas, creates rich, inspiring soundscapes with their ascending harmonies and radiant guitars. In 2012, Courrier was featured on CW's The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, 90210 and Gossip Girl and ABC's Jane By Design . After their national television debut on The Vampire Diaries, Courrier's emotional anthem "Between" raced up the iTunes chart, peaking at #52. Their first single, "Love is a Fire," from their forthcoming sophomore record, Cathedrals of Color, produced by Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam), broke the top 50 at triple A radio. They are headlining in February to promote their new record, due out March 12th and are releasing a second single, “Inch of Rope” to radio and Itunes January 28th.

Kat Edmonson

Kat Edmonson is a Texas native and self-described “vintage pop” singer-songwriter. Last year saw the release of her album, Way Down Low, a collection of mostly original works that debuted atop the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The album, which immediately garnered interest from top music press, was described by NPR "All Things Considered" as "a timeless sound." That distinctive style and approach is no doubt influenced by the many years of absorbing her mom's love of Great American Songbook classics while growing up in Houston. Her obsessive music consumption has paid off with the new album and her first headline tour through the Northeast and the Midwest, which will also include hitting stages at some of the bigger music festivals this Spring.

Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown

At 21-years-old, Tyler Bryant has already shared the stage with rock legends and is featured in the award winning film, “Rock Prophecies.” Along with his talented bandmates Caleb Crosby (drums), Noah Denney (bass) and guitarist Graham Whitford, the quartet has captured the attention of fans and industry alike with their talent and rare showmanship.

Their new album WILD CHILD is a 12-cut collection of visceral blues-rock tracks, pushing musical limits and solidifying the band’s place in the emerging young rock scene.
