About Midnight Pilot
Midnight Pilot is an americana pop-rock band originally from West Michigan. The four members have been playing together since early high school and stayed together throughout individual collegiate endeavors that sent them to various corners of the country. Despite the distance, the band recorded and produced several full length albums over the years and continued to develop new material. In 2014,Midnight Pilot moved to Nashville and started fresh. Drawing influences from bands like The Beach Boys, Tom Petty and Wilco, Midnight Pilot writes music with good old fashioned harmonies fortified by steady rock rhythms perfect for cruising through prairies in a drop-top Bel Air. At its core, Midnight Pilot is a group of friends working to create the best version of their music as possible while remembering not to take themselves too seriously and enjoy the ride.
About Tyler Barhman
If in today’s music environment, online followings are the foundation of an artist’s career, then Montana native Tyler Barham’s career is solid as a rock. This Country singer-songwriter, with a voice that has been described as ringing like a bell, has built a foundation of more than 50,000 dedicated online fans with over 9 million views. Born in Bozeman and raised in Florence, Montana; Tyler began singing when he was nine. Although he enjoyed singing different styles of music, it did not take him long to realize his heart (and eventually his baritone voice) belonged to country music. In his early teens, Tyler competed and won various regional talent competitions, but also while in high school, Tyler discovered YouTube and began posting covers of his favorite country songs, which quickly introduced him to a worldwide audience.
About The Zach Pietrini Band
Nominated two years running for Best Band in Milwaukee (2014-2015, 88Nine Radio Milwaukee). the Zach Pietrini Band barrels through towns on rails laid by Gram Parsons & Ryan Adams. A 5-piece alt-country outfit, the band charges on with its newest release Highways and Heartache. Their sound consistently evolves, but doesn’t stray from its roots of brutally honest and instantly familiar tavern tunes. The songwriting has “sharpened and become more focused” (Shepherd Express), with recent features on The Troubadour Show, and NoiseTrade. They are, as ever, driven by their desire to connect with people through the simple beauty of story and song.
