Marc Scibilia - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Marc Scibilia
“I look at the world in a dark way sometimes, but when I hear a melody, when a lyric comes to me, I feel like things are going to be OK.”

While the sounds and styles of the eleven songs on Scibilia’s debut album, Out of Style, span a broad spectrum—from singer-songwriter narratives to dance beats, drawing on folk, pop, and rock along the way—his hard-fought but positive spirit never wavers. Produced by critically acclaimed artist and hitmaker Butch Walker (Pink, Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban), Scibilia’s LP marks the arrival of a unique new talent.

The Buffalo-born, East Nashville-based artist may be up-and-coming, but not completely un-known. In 2015, he turned heads and set Twitter abuzz for his ethereal rendition of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land,” as part of the Jeep Chrysler commercial that aired during the Super Bowl and became the most Shazamed moment of Super Bowl XLIX outside of the halftime show.

The success of the ad lead to coverage from Rolling Stone, Billboard, Forbes and USA Today and helped launch a busy year of touring with over 100 shows performed across North America and Europe.
Corey Harper - (Set time: 9:50 PM)
Corey Harper
Corey Harper is a 21 year old American singer/songwriter from Portland, Oregon. Born in Missouri, Corey began playing guitar at an early age when he came across a Fender Stratocaster at his uncle's house in Kansas City. Corey Harper’s blend of acoustic Folk/Americana, Country and Blues pays homage and builds upon the storied singer/songwriters of past and present. As a guitar player, and songwriter, Harper crafted his sound from growing up around 60s/70s rock and soul music, as well as drawing inspiration from newer artists such as John Mayer and Ben Howard. Harper’s debut EP “On The Run” ambitiously showcases his lyricism, and melodic guitar playing that has caught the attention of many.
Brad Ray - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Brad Ray
Rome, Georgia native Brad Ray began playing guitar at the age of twelve. He honed his playing skills listening to a diverse palette of artists; Third Eye Blind, Prince, Whitesnake and Maxwell, just to name a few. From these influences, he began to develop his own unique style of playing and composing songs. Fast forward a couple years and Brad is studying at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. It is there that he really began to grow as a writer composing literally hundreds of songs and performing when he could fit it in between studies. He realized his heart was that of an artist and he left school to pursue a career as a songwriter and performer.

In 2015 Brad launched his professional touring career and performed with Howie Day (“We Collide”), Paul Pfau and Steve Everett of (The Voice). In early 2016, Brad joined forces with Rock Radio favorite; Sister Hazel for his first U.S. Tour and then joined Alt/Rock legends; Hinder for yet another tour of the country. This Fall he once again toured the U.S. with Jon McLaughlin and Marc Scibilia. It has been a very busy year with 3 tours and a new album completed!
