Paper Route - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Paper Route
Paper Route is composed of Chad Howat, J.T. Daly and Gavin McDonald. After forming as a studio project in 2004 they eventually released their debut full-length album "Absence" in April, 2009.
"Absence" sent them on the road for the next two years touring with the likes of Paramore, Phantom Planet, mewithoutyou, Passion Pit, and Copeland. It also earned them several spots in film and television in movies such as "500 Days of Summer" and Tv shows like "One Tree Hill," "C.S.I. New York," "The World of Jenks" and many more.
After taking a short break from touring Paper Route started recording their second album. In late 2011, the band announced that they had finished recording "The Peace of Wild Things" and are planning a 2012 release. "Better Life" was released digitally in November 2011 as its first single.

Paper Route has always considered themselves more of a creative collaboration then just a band. With all members involved in Nashville's art & music scene, they have managed to create a sonic & visual world that has been the bands driving force, and what paper route fans tend to gravitate towards.
Alexander Howard - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Alexander Howard
The inspiration behind Alexander Howard’s solo debut came out of a songwriting trip to Los Angeles, Recording in a sweaty Hollywood studio, the singer, songwriter, and multi instrumentalist dialed in on writing and recording upbeat, pop rock songs with undeniable melodic and lyrical hooks and he found himself constantly wondering—“Where are the guys playing this breed of pop on the radio?” Returning to his hometown of New York, he immediately set to work honing in on the songs and sound that would become his first solo release with the production team ROBOPOP (the masterminds behind the new Gym Class Heroes x Adam Levine single “Stereohearts”). Written and co-produced by Howard, the songs take inspiration from all walks of pop, ranging from sixties Motown to Top40 indie pop. Woven together by Howard’s pop rock vocals and his visual and thematic songwriting, this diverse offering is one of the most relevant debuts in a time when most male solo pop rock artists are few and far between.

Off-stage and outside the recording studio, Howard is a highly involved in New York’s fashion community—designing clothing for New York based men’s brands as well as writing up collections and profiles for Interview Magazine, founded by Andy Warhol in the late sixties.
