Today’s Artist Lineup:

Alan Heart – The Girl I Know:
With his first world wide pop rock album, Alan Heart marks a major milestone in his music career and life. Braving the lose of his job after discovering a heart problem, the artist poured himself into his long time passion to climb one last mountain, making this album everything that he’s always wished for but never realized. Alan takes us on a journey from a lighter shade of pop to a rock fantasy filled with innovative undertones that walk a punk grunge border. He allows us to walk his journey through a self examination that challenges his own personal boundaries as an artist. I loved how he pushed his own boundaries on each track as the album progresses. The edgier flavors took it somewhere he’s never been and didn’t know he could go. That’s a true artist. A teasing track with lively beat and funny sarcasm on the trials of love and relationships. Alan Heart leaves us really wanting a music video painting the scene already spinning in our imaginations on this one.

Queen of Kings – Killin’ Me
With a vision to become a global leader in music, Queen of Kings is on a mission to set you free! In the fall of 2014, the fearless duo expanded their vision by relocating to Los Angeles, California and released their first EP (The Beginning) that rose to #34 on the iTunes Indie Rock Charts.They are non-apologetic in their ambition to be the #1 duo band in the world, they are locked in to dominate, and don’t shy away from declaring that they are here to WIN! With over 80,000 views on YouTube of their latest release, Killin’ Me (October 2016)

Jennifer B & the Groove – What’s done is done
Jennifer’s band, Jennifer B & the Groove, resides out of Austin, Texas.    At every show you can hear her gritty, soulful voice, rocking it out to many roots-rock classics, Blues of all kinds, and Americana, which is writing styles of Jennifer Lindsey.  They perform as many as 5-6 shows a week all over Texas, playing many of Jennifer’s original tunes.  They always get asked back to play and always deliver a powerful energy at each show.  Jennifer’s idea of each show is that it should be performed like it is the last show that she will ever perform! The song, What’s Done Is Done, is about not looking back.  It could mean ANYTHING to ANYONE but the message is clear, what’s done is done…time to move forward!  For me it was about leaving a relationship and seeing a fresh start in my future.  I knew that I could NOT look back if I wanted to move forward.

Kelly Cheats – Soul Revival

A well traveled group, Kelly Cheats is on the move, packing out venues from Atlanta, GA to Daytona Beach, FL,  Charlotte, NC to Charleston, SC and even Cincinnati, OH, promoting their latest release Keep On Smiling. The band combines rock, pop, blues, reggae, jazz, and sounds of the south with new age funky grooves and feels. They host an array of different sounds outside of the box including a horn section, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, keys, and kazooooo. Kelly Cheats? Don’t ask. She doesn’t like to talk about it.

Ellen Thweatt – Homesick
“Ellen Thweatt is an Americana singer-songwriter born and raised in San Diego currently writing and singing in Nashville, Tenessee. “Homesick” is one of Ellen’s most personal songs. This sentimental song is written about the reality that it often only takes one person to build a home inside of you and blow it down when you least expect it. It can happen when you’ve already fallen in love, a close friend says goodbye, or family breaks your heart. Life goes on, but “homesickness” from lost connection is a part of life and love.”
