Widely named as one of last year's artists to watch, singer/songwriter Graham Colton has enjoyed breakout success with his hit single, "Best Days." The song has been all over radio airwaves and licensed for television, receiving massive exposure from American Idol as the coveted exit song in five episodes; Oprah's The Big Give; and national promo campaigns on ABC, MTV, and HBO, among others. No stranger to the road, Colton has toured with John Mayer, Kelly Clarkson, Maroon 5, the Dave Matthews Band, Counting Crows, Gavin DeGraw, Vanessa Carlton, and more.

Seth Glier is a 20-year-old singer/songwriter/pianist from Massachusetts swiftly making a name for himself on the national scene. His debut album for MPress, The Trouble with People, is both timeless and modern and has drawn comparisons to Billy Joel, Marc Cohn, Gavin DeGraw, Elton John, and Paul McCartney.

Mikey Wax released his debut album, Change Again, last November, and since then, much has happened. Thanks to the grassroots support of fans, the Wax's album charted on the iTunes top 100 pop albums, and he did his first U.S. tour, performed live on CBS News, and has gathered 30,000+ YouTube hits for his "In Case I Go Again" music video. Wax also recently ranked #3 on the AC/Hot AC Up & Coming Artist radio chart nationwide.

Tubby Love

Its not the size of the band, its the size of the love. Here to spread the message of purely positive vibrations, Tubby Love is a heady force of futuristic reggae fusion. With songs like "Constant Motion" and "No One's in Control," the message of the music is a clear ear-opening experience for the awakening of the masses. The five-piece Boston-based band has shared the stage with up-and-coming reggae greats such as Passafire and Blue King Brown, and continues to make their way into the future roots music scene. Outwardly expressing their love for experimental music, Tubby Love is on the steady path of creating what some are calling a "reggae soul revolution."
