Andy Grammer

From hustling street performer on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade to Platinum-selling recording artist, it seems like just yesterday that Andy Grammer was discovered by Steve Greenberg and signed to S-Curve Records. With his 2011 self-titled debut album, Grammer 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, selling more than 1.8 million downloads combined.

Grammer's second album, 2014's critically acclaimed Magazines or Novels, continued his disarming success with his smash hit single “Honey, I’m Good.” – a clever new twist on the traditional love song.  Certified TRIPLE PLATINUM, it reached #1 at Hot AC, and top 10 at both Top 40 and AC.  To date, “Honey, I’m Good. “has garnered more than 60 million views on YouTube, and 90 million streams on Spotify. 

In August, 2015, Andy Grammer debuted his latest single, “Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah)” in front of a sold-out crowd on the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live. A new ‘Deluxe Edition’ of Magazines or Novels was released shortly after, featuring the new single plus 3 additional new tracks.  Both “Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah) and Magazines or Novels have been certified GOLD.

Andy ended on a high note with 7 national TV appearances over the holiday’s including Dancing With The Stars, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve and The Today Show.. He also performed the National Anthem at the 2015 World Series, and the NFL’s AFC Championship Game this past January.

The son of noted children's music artist Red Grammer, Andy took to music at an early age, learning multiple instruments and singing with his dad. By the time he was 15, he was writing his own songs, and his unique blend of diverse influences -- from Lauren Hill to Coldplay to Jay-Z -- has made him one of the most sought after pop artists in America with nearly 6 million songs sold to date.

Ben Rector

Eight years after he began touring while at the University of Arkansas and two years after his first entry into the Top Twenty on the Billboard Album Chart, Ben Rector is back with a new album and is feeling Brand New (August 28th, Aptly Named Recordings).  The singer-songwriter's newest album marks a return to the spirit of his youth, when he was a music-crazed teenager playing guitar in his Tulsa bedroom. At that time, every new song was a discovery, and turning those songs into a career was just a dream. Since then, the twenty-eight year old has made that dream a reality, independently selling over 400,000 albums and 4,005,000 downloads. His four studio albums and 2014’s Live In Denver, have repeatedly put him on top of the iTunes charts, leading to sold-out shows to fans who sing along with every word in theaters across the country. Rector has written hundreds of songs and played thousands of bills in his young career, but in the writing and recording of Brand New, he re-discovered the energy of his early days, with songs that have all the punch, power and promise of a debut record.  Filled with rich string arrangements, percussion, pounding piano chords and effortless melodies, Brand New sounds anthemic. At the same time, its message is both sincere and humble, anchored by songs that are honest and meaningful. It's pop music with a purpose. 

Haley Reinhart

Haley Reinhart, 25, is a singer/songwriter who released her debut album, Listen Up!, in 2012 on Interscope Records and 19 Recordings. The record garnered significant critical acclaim, debuting at #17 on the Billboard 200 chart. Her new EP, Better, will be released in 2016 via ole and red dot.

Reinhart grew up in Chicagoland, born into a world of music. Singing at the young age of 7, she began to take the stage alongside her parents and their band of 30 years: Midnight. Thanks to her parents’ diverse musical taste, Reinhart became heavily influenced by a wide variety of genres, including rock ’n’ roll, funk, pop, jazz, and the blues. She hit the big stage with the Wheeling High School jazz band, which toured across Europe in 2009, performing at both the Montreux Jazz Festival and Umbria Jazz Festival.

Reinhart continued to study jazz in college, forming several bands and side collaborations. In 2011, she competed on Season 10 of landmark TV singing competition series American Idol, eventually finishing in third place. Since then, she has signed a deal with ole and red dot, which has enabled her to travel the U.S. and abroad to work with the best international writers and producers. As a result of these collaborations, Reinhart and ole have had incredible success in the world of synch placement, most recently with her cover of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” which appeared in a TV ad for Extra Gum that has racked up nearly 13 million views on YouTube.

Her songs have also been featured in a variety of other TV and film projects, including James Cameron’s HBO documentary series Years of Living Dangerously, a recent Chase Bank commercial, and the film “Step Up Revolution.”

Reinhart has built up a strong and devoted fanbase of “Haliens” thanks to live performances at festivals such as Lollapalooza and the New Orleans Jazz Fest. She has also collaborated live with some of the biggest names in the business, including Tony Bennett at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Slash at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, David Foster at the Celebrity Fight Night charity event, and Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

In addition to singing, Reinhart made her voiceover debut this past December as a little boy named Bill in the Netflix original animated series F Is for Family, produced by Bill Burr, Vince Vaughn, Peter Billingsly, and Michael Price. She is also touring Europe this spring with viral jazz-pop sensations Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox.

Zach Heckendorf

By age 18, Denver native Zach Heckendorf signed his first record deal, released his first album, played Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre and shared stages with Rodrigo y
 Gabriela, John Butler Trio, Brett Dennen, The Lumineers, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Guster, and One Republic. That was then.

Now 23 and on his own two feet touring the country, Heckendorf has further developed his craft, combining his bread and butter of fluid songwriting and strong musicianship with a deep passion for contagious hip-hop rhythms.

Heckendorf has an undeniable ability to energize a room, establishing a unique relationship with his audience. Now with a full band, his dynamic range extends beyond acoustic-pop common ground and into a satisfyingly thorough and raucous sound.

Heckendorf is performing behind the release of his latest EP, Up! - EP (Jan 29, 2016).

This is now.
