The Kari Lynch Band is no stranger to the spotlight. Their high energy, lively show leaves a lasting impression on all of those who get the chance to hear them. The Nashville based band, originally from Michigan, has spent the last 8 years touring and playing thousands of shows across the U.S and abroad, playing to crowds in the tens of thousands and earning an impressive resume opening for some of country music’s most recognized artists including, Kacey Musgraves, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Pistol Annies, Kelsea Ballerini, Alabama, Brothers Osborne, Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels Band and The Band Perry. Noted as “a true artist to watch, deserving of attention in the national spotlight” — Caroline Poole (National Country Review), the Kari Lynch Bands’ impressive lead vocals, solid 4-part harmonies and undeniable talent for creating catchy and unique melodies, often described as "traditional country with a twist", sets them apart from the rest. With a continuous and rapidly growing fan base, a loaded tour schedule and their sophomore album in the works for 2019, the Kari Lynch Band is one to watch.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 2019
Yahoo’s “Band To Watch” in 2017 isn’t slowing down in 2018.
The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) are kicking off the year as major label artists, having released their debut album, Odyssey, with Sony Masterworks in August of 2017. Billboard Magazine says, “The Accidentals display a genre-hopping range of influences and some smart songwriting skills to go with their abundant musical chops” and PopMatters Magazine says, you can’t define them by comparison to any one band, comparing them to a mashup of influences including, “The Beatles, The Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, Led Zeppelin, Ani Difranco, Neko Case, Brandi Carlile, etc.” NPR says, “they display equal interest in the focused musical forms of indie rock and pop and the expansive potential of orchestral arrangements, jam band open-endedness and impressionistic singer-songwriter expression.”
Texas Lifestyle Magazine made The Accidentals their “must-see” band of SXSW 2018, and staff writer Daniel Ramirez raves about their live show, saying, “They are defiant, young, powerful, and undaunted. You’re gonna wanna say you saw them before they were everywhere.”
