George Ezra

“Shotgun”

George Ezra is one of the biggest selling male artists of the decade. Recently releasing his second album Staying At Tamara’s nearly four years after the release of his multi-platinum and also chart-topping debut album Wanted On Voyage, the sophomore album went on to be the best-selling artist record of 2018 in the UK and  features George’s first UK Number 1 single “Shotgun” – which has also topped the charts in five other countries so far. In the US, George has had multiple sold-out tours and performed in major US festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza off the back of his success with his first single “Budapest” which topped the US charts.  

George’s debut album Wanted On Voyage is certified 4x platinum in the UK, gold in the US, and was amongst the top 10 biggest selling artist albums in this country in both 2014 and 2015, reaching #1 in the Official UK Chart and spending 122 weeks in the chart overall. In little more than 18 months Ezra went from virtual unknown to one of the international breakthrough artists of recent times: taking in a top 10 album in 10 countries; three sold out UK tours; nominations for four BRITs, one BBC Music Award and an Ivor Novello.

Sasha Sloan

“Older”

Sasha Sloan is that girl you can chat about “deep cuts” with in a diner until four AM between cigarettes and coffee. She is a normal yet “completely complicated human” who describes her style as “Target chic” and is trying to speak to “the quiet girls at the party who struggle with what they look like.”

At just ten-years old Sasha started writing songs, but it wasn’t until she posted a viral photo at 18 that her career kicked off. She added her Soundcloud link to the post and landed a publishing deal as a result. Dropping out of Berklee College of Music, she moved to L.A. at 19-years-old. As she primarily penned her own music, she also wrote for artists like Camilla Cabello and she was featured on tracks for Kygo & ODESZA. In 2017, she released the songs off her first EP sad girl independently prior to being signed. Within a year, “Runaway,” “Normal,” and “Ready Yet” each surpassed 19 million Spotify streams, while averaging over 4 million monthly listeners on the platform. Along the way, she signed to RCA Records and assembled her 2018 EP loser, which immediately garnered acclaim from Billboard, Flaunt, and more propelled by “The Only,” “Chasing Parties,” lead single “Older,” and more.

The Accidentals

“Heavy Flag”

Texas Lifestyle Magazine calls The Accidentals defiant, young – powerful, and undaunted” the “band to see” at Austin City Limits, SXSW 2018

Female-fronted, multi-instrumentalist power trio, The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause), kicked off 2018 with the release of their debut album, Odyssey, with Sony Masterworks. They followed the album release with two-hundred days of touring nationally, seventeen festivals, sync placement with Turner Classic Movies and FOX sports, and a RAM Trucks BANDvan #tourtough commercial.

They released their latest single, “Heavy Flag,” produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Lana Del Ray, The Decemberists) in October and they aren’t slowing down going into 2019. They are currently scoring an indie film, touring and teaching workshops across the country, and releasing new music.

PopMatters says you can’t define them by comparison to any one band, comparing them to a mash up of influences including, “The Beatles, 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,” adding, “they might be the most compelling songwriters of our time.”

Find their music online on all streaming platforms, at Barnes and Noble, and at their shows.  Show schedule can be found at Bandsintown and on their website at www.theaccidentalsmusic.com.
