Clark's killer vocals and profound music abilities as a multi-instrumentalist has led him on a journey from busking on the streets to performing on national television in front of millions of viewers. On American Idol, Clark's soulful, bluesy voice outsold every other contestant combined on iTunes and placed him as THE fan favorite and runner-up of the 2015 season. Clark's live performances also dominated the top 10 most viewed videos on American Idol's Youtube channel. Since Idol, Clark has performed with the Nashville Symphony, written with Brian McKnight, been nominated for the Teen Choice award for Music’s Next Big Thing, opened on tour for Jon Bellion, and signed with Quincy Jones.
Clark most recently released his EP “Year One”, which debuted at #6 on iTunes Alternative and #22 on Billboard’s R&B Sales chart. His highly- awaited EP includes, “Must Be Hard Being You”, which was a collaboration with The Shadowboxers, and “I Need”, which was produced by Steve Jordan and features John Mayer's all-star band: Steve Jordan on drums, Pino Palladino on bass, and Isaiah Sharkey on guitar, with horn arrangements by Jerry Hey and Keyon Harrold.
We will continue to see refreshing new music from Clark that will be highly regarded and binge-worthy, making his music one for the passionate connoisseurs of music. Catch Clark’s captivating performances on his debut headline tour this fall at www.clarkbeckham.com.
Alex2e (actual name Alex Tuohey) is a self-taught singer/songwriter from Western Massachusetts. More importantly, Alex2e is a storyteller. In 2012, while recovering from a major surgery and desperate for reprieve, he picked up his sister's beat up guitar and started writing. Words became lyrics, days became months and bathroom video covers turned into gigs. Fast forward to today and his leaps can be measured in dog years.
Called "One of Boston's most sought after artists" by Berklee's Red Room, Alex has made a name for himself both in his home state and beyond. Averaging 130+ dates annually, he has traveled the country while supporting national acts such as Tyler Hilton, O-Town, Griffin House, Aaron Carter, Casey Abrams and Zac Brown Band alum Levi Lowrey, among others. With a debut EP in the top 10 of iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and another release set for late 2018, he continues to prove - it's never too late to find your passion.
The music of Jim Wolf is characterized by a powerful confidence. There’s a certainty in his delivery, and a sincerity in the lyrics delivered. Wolf’s presence and conviction are what’s what’s kept him going non stop since (2006), helped him complete five studio albums since then and taken him around the United States and Asia to concert halls, coffee shops, and colleges.
After watching his older brother make four track recordings with an undiscovered John Mayer in the family's basement, Jim found himself inspired to embark upon his own musical career. Jim Wolf’s music has since been featured on MTV, VH1, E!, Oxygen, and The Young & The Restless. He has performed his vocal driven pop-rock alongside artists like Ryan Cabrera, The Alternate Routes, Chris Thile of The Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek, Nick Fradiani, and John Mayer, and received nominations for the American Songwriter Award and International Acoustic Music Award.
Jim Wolf has enjoyed success not only at home in the United States, but also overseas in South Korea where his music frequently charts above heavy hitters like Maroon Five, Beyonce, and Adele on MNET. Jim’s single, Make You My Lady retained a spot in MNET’s top fifty for three weeks and top twenty on K-Pop at it’s peak, and has become a go-to wedding song in Korea after being used by celebrity couple Chae Rim and Gao Zi Qi.
Looking back down the road it seems Jim Wolf’s vision and mettle were well founded. Looking forward it’s clear that with successes both hard won and unforeseen Jim’s star continues to rise.
