This event is all ages
Iamwe has been on earth for about 2.5 years.
During this time the collective synergy of their five minds has brought them to places no one really expected them to go.
Their debut album, Run Wild, has been described as a "cohesive, glammed out, space rock extravaganza" And was named one of Phoenix's Top 10 records of 2012 by Phoenix New Times (Caldwell).
In their short history they have been lucky enough to share the stage with great national acts as well as with the best local bands Phoenix has to offer. Winning a global "battle of the bands" gave them a slot at the "Hard Rock Calling" festival in London, England in June of 2011. More recently, they
toured the East Coast with Anberlin and Morning Parade.
Their most recognizable song to date, "So They Say" has won over the local scene with its infectious percussion and tribal vocals. Their hypnotizing live performance mixed with their haunting lyrics is sure to make a fan out of any music lover.
HER & GOLD
Her & Gold is the solo project of Maria Sais de Sicilia, best known for her other bands Lydia and Bears Of Manitou.
TRACTOR PULL DIVAS
With band members that have shared the stage with everyone from Switchfoot to P.O.D. to Ricky Skaggs to Bo Diddley, you'd expect Tractor Pull Divas to be anything but ordinary. Well, go ahead and congratulate yourself, because you are right.
Hailing from the Phoenix, AZ area, TPD has made a name for themselves through appearances at events such as the Fiesta Bowl Block Party and the Tempe Music Festival. Tractor Pull Divas has also performed on Fox Sports AZ as part of the AZ Dbacks All Star Game Voting Party.
After performing at the Tempe Music Festival with Tempe favorites the Gin Blossoms, TPD was invited to record some songs at the studio owned by Gin Blossoms' front man Robin Wilson. Those songs became the core for their second EP "Love Songs for (Insert Your Name Here)". (Their first EP, "Burning Bushes and Bridges" is now sold out and out of print.)
Received very well be the critics, the EP was selected by the Phoenix New Times (Village Voice Publications) as one of the top AZ releases of 2008. The songs "Impressed" and "It's Not Going to Kill Me" also received songwriting honors from Billboard and Song of the Year.
In late 2010, Tractor Pull Divas released their debut full length CD titled "Hope in a State of Descay". Tractor Pull Divas continues to perfrom regularly throughout the Phoenix area.
There is something unique and refreshing about Kenny Holland. Something that you truly must come in contact with to understand. His music is soulful and honest while still appealing to pop cravings. It quickly becomes hard to believe that, at just seventeen years old, it's possible to write ballads this powerful and hooks this infectious.
Holland has come a long way since his start growing up in Michigan and only performing at high school events. From playing sold-out shows, to recording a full-length record, to taking social networking by storm. It's only a matter of time before Kenny and his songs are recognized world-wide.
In a day and age where singer/songwriters are a dime a dozen, Kenny brings something new to the table. Check out his debut single, "So What", today!
