Bluesy pop singer-songwriter Noah Guthrie has been taking the U.S. by storm to promote his debut album, Among the Wildest Things. Often known for his unique covers on YouTube, Guthrie is excited to give fans a taste of his own music. Throughout his career, he has opened for a variety of artists as his powerful, soulful voice and beautifully written songs appeal to a wide range of audiences. He has opened concerts for Ed Sheeran, Neon Trees, Cobra Starship, Matisyahu, and Selena Gomez, among others.

Dan Tedesco is the quintessential modern-day troubadour, narrating the American experience in song honestly and intimately and with a big sound to boot. A solo artist, Tedesco’s stage show is framed by a minimalist production that finds him belting out folk-spiced rock from behind both acoustic and electric guitars while foot-stomping percussion rounds out many of the arrangements. This is one solo artist who won’t seem out of place on a bill with rock bands.
