State College of Florida Foundation, Inc. – General admission tickets are $20. Walden, an SCF alumnus, will open for “The Western Sons” with a 45-minute set featuring his original music. Walden began writing songs in 2011 geared toward “giving the listener a sense of nostalgia or an escape from their everyday troubles.” His first original single, “Flipped the Script,” was released in May 2015 and charted at #38 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart. His first EP, “Life,” was released the following July and on its first day of presales, hit #7 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter Top Album chart. Headliner "The Western Sons," based in Nashville, are all Floridians who started playing together as students at the University of South Florida (USF). According to their website, their music is "somewhere between pop-rock that your dad would approve of and dad-rock that your sister would groove to." Bandmembers are Bradenton’s own Tyler Cohenour, vocals and guitar; Garrett Carr, vocals and bass guitar; Blake Rigdon, lead guitar and keys; and Nick Benik, drums and production.

Kristopher James & Kerry Courtney
Darwin Brewing Company and Taproom – Touring soul/Americana artist, Kristopher James, calls Florida home. "Who is a kindred musical spirit to artists like Gavin DeGraw and Amos Lee, has managed to graduate from the realm of 'blue eyed' anything. His guitar work -- deceptively complex while still managing to be easy on the ears -- is right in harmony and clean in tone. His vocals are perfectly reigned in to suit his range and his easy gift for melody is unrivaled in the Bay area singer-songwriter space Kristopher James is perhaps the most interesting local musician on the scene” – Creative Loafing Tampa His sophomore EP, Find Me, portrays a dose of Kristopher's vulnerable heart and genuine spirit with both tear-jerking and joyful lyrics combined. The fourth track on the EP, "Heart Shaped Grave", features the beautiful voice of Sam Robertson. The Find Me EP was produced by Kristopher James & Burnt Orange Studios and released on May 27, 2016. Kerry Courtney is a singer songwriter from St Petersburg, Florida who started a band at the young age of 11. Since then, he has shared the stage with international acts such as Switchfoot, Vance Joy, X Ambassadors, Meg Myers, The Mouglis, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, etc, and was even on the last season of American Idol, where he was given a 6 minute tv feature making it to hollywood. Touring across Europe, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and America, Kerry touches the heart of the listener with his beautifully honest lyrics, and haunting voice. Since taking a step back from his long running band, Goodnight Neverland, Kerry has pursued his own musical journey under his own name, with an album coming out early next year. Keep your ears open for his upcoming release, and catch his set in a city near you.

I listened to their Greatest Hits album hundreds of times and never grew tired of it. This has been the most challenging and rewarding project I've been a part of without a doubt!"
