Eisley / Say Chance/ Christie Dupree/ Tallhart
Eisley is a family band that was formed in 1997 after the youngest sibling, Stacy, wrote its first song at age 8. With inspiring songs and great press from music critics in the burgeoning Dallas scene, the young indie-pop group released its debut EP on Record Collection, signed with Warner Bros., jumped on Coldplay's Rush of Blood tour and began carving out a national following. Eisley is hitting its stride and continues to write beautiful, lush, melody-charged pop songs. Eisley is nearing completion on an exciting, brutally honest, catchy-as-hell third LP to be released this year.
Christie DuPree is a singer-songwriter from Texas known for her angelic voice. She is the younger sister of Chauntelle, Sherri, Stacy, and Weston DuPree and the cousin of Garron DuPree—all of whom are members of the band Eisley. DuPree is currently working on her own solo projects. She made various appearances on stage during Eisley's Combinations tour. She has previously worked with Wesley Jensen on both of his EPs and can be seen in the music video for "Think I Wanna Die" by Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.
Say Chance is a trio of lovely and talented young ladies that will instantly touch your heart with their acoustic melodies. Kelly Rosenthal is the trio's 19-year-old guitarist who enjoys recreating classic rock riffs, like the solo from "Stairway to Heaven" or Carlos Santana tunes. The three managed to capture the essence and energy of the originals they cover, while injecting some acoustic flavor thanks to Kelly's cool, arpeggiated guitar arrangement, and to the great vocal performances by Maddie and Taylor, which fall somewhere between rock, blues, and soul.
