Kevin Ross is a multi-faceted singer, songwriter, and producer who quickly went from performing once every three months to opening for R&B/Soul legend Maxwell five times a week. In 2012, the Washington, D.C. native signed a major recording deal with Motown Records and released his first major project, Dialogue in the Grey (EP), two years later. Known for his soul-drenched, buttery, smooth vocals, he was named AOL's "Best New Artist of 2014" and landed a national holiday campaign with Glade that brought joy to American households across the country.Ross released his long-awaited debut full-length album The Awakening in March of 2017. The album's first single, "Long Song Away" peaked at #1 on Billboard's Adult R&B Song chart and at Urban Contemporary Radio with the follow-up single "Don't Go" cracking the Top 15. The chart-topping success of The Awakening led to Ross receiving several award nominations: Best New Artist (Soul Train Awards), Outstanding New Artist (NAACP Image Awards), and New R&B Artist (iHeart Radio Awards) and headlining his first national tour. In September of that same year, he released his third studio project, Drive (EP). Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes

Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes have more than 30 albums on their resume, thousands of acclaimed live performances across the globe, and a vibrant legacy of classic songs that have become hits to their large and famously dedicated fan base. Just last year, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes released the highly-acclaimed Soultime!, their first new studio album of all original material in five years, on Leroy Records. Soultime! celebrates the transformative power of '70s soul music and represents a return to-as Southside sings-"just letting the music take us away". This latest release encapsulates everything that fans cherish about Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. The pattern of horns plus rhythm-each song painted with catchy choruses, top-notch string arrangements and gospel charged vocals-keeps on coming.

For the past 20 years, Chris Knight has only made music his own way. He's released eight acclaimed albums, played thousands of electrifying live shows and built generations of fervent fans from Texas honky-tonks to Manhattan rock clubs. He's been hailed as "the last of a dying breed...a taciturn loner with an acoustic guitar and a college degree" (The New York Times) and "a storyteller in the best traditions of Mellencamp and Springsteen" (USA Today). He's hard-earned his reputation as one of America's most uncompromising and respected singer-songwriters. And now with his newest album, Almost Daylight, Knight delivers the most powerful-and unexpected-music of his career.
