Jonah Marais is a 17-year-old singer from Minnesota who has been touring consistently for two years. He started singing on the internet in 2014 and gained a diehard fanbase. In 2015, he went on four national tours with other singers and entertainers. He released his first single, "I Meant It," that summer to an enormous response. Marais then led his first headlining tour in April 2016 to support his debut EP, When the Daylight's Gone, which he cowrote.

Sebastian Olzanski is a YouTube sensation who caught his first break after creating his channel, ThatSpanishBoy. He began performing regular shows on YouNow and posting YouTube videos here and there on Fanishtastic Fridays, which gave him a place to grow his fanbase, known as "Sebsters." In 2015, Olzanski began recording music and releasing music videos. His tour with Marais marks his first appearance in the U.S., and his performance will feature several unreleased tracks.
