"As a singer/songwriter, Colton has the writing talents of Chris Carrabba and the musical abilities of Rob Thomas, but he melds the two in a style that differs greatly from Dashboard melodrama and Matchbox Twenty popsadness." — Fuzz Magazine
"Definitely easy on the ears … don't be surprised to hear 'Best Days' defining a dramatic moment on Grey's Anatomy." — Billboard
It's true - singer songwriter Graham Colton has an uncanny pop sensibility with deep roots in folk and rock music that has already earned him both critical and mainstream acclaim. His latest album, Pacific Coast Eyes, the follow up to 2008's Here Right Now, hits right in the pocket of what Graham does best: write lyrics about universal themes of love and loss, and everything between in a way that uniquely ties himself to the listener; and most importantly, enables them to feel as though they are hearing the story of their own lives through Graham's music.
In many ways Colton HAS been the soundtrack to people's lives. His story is one that aspiring musicians dream of - while playing local coffeehouses, he routinely handed out homemade CDs – one of which found its way onto the internet online tastemakers could provide. The chatter eventually reached one of his biggest influences, Adam Duritz, who asked him to open for the Counting Crows. Colton put a band together, went on tour and scored a label deal. Through sheer hard work and relentless perseverance, Colton went on tour with the likes of John Mayer, Maroon 5, OAR, Dave Matthews Band, Train, The Wallflowers and pop superstar Kelly Clarkson.
Along the way he wrote amazing songs, including "Best Days," for the album Here Right Now, which was chosen as "Song of the Week" on iTunes, accruing over 700,000 downloads. "Best Days" became the exit music for American Idol, was used in a year-end commercial for HBO and was chosen by none other than Oprah Winfrey for her Big Give television specials. Here Right Now debuted at #2 on the Billboard New Artist chart and #4
on the iTunes Pop Chart, and led to Graham being asked to perform on a cavalcade of television shows including Ellen, The Tonight Show, Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Today Show and Live! With Regis & Kelly.
After such heady success, Colton took time to re-group; deciding to get 100% behind his career and go indie again, he holed himself up in his hometown of Oklahoma City to begin to put down the words, ideas and melodies that had been banging around his head. The result is the pop perfect Pacific Coast Eyes, with hummable choruses and sing-a-long verses that is the ideal musical companion to the summer of 2011.
Jason Savory: the CMA and Nashville recording artist signed with Stillbrook Records in the Spring of 2012. Jason has spent the past year working in and out of the studio on a long play record that will include new material and several modified versions of a few tracks from previous albums. The release of his new record and radio single is planned for the first half of 2013. Jason Savory is Ripley, Oklahoma native who grew up with an early passion for hunting, fishing and country music surrounded by a family who supported his career and interests. His original and market separation Red Dirt sound came about from his background and musical inspiration from the likes of George Jones, Gary Allan, Merle Haggard, and Chris Ledoux. Over the past few years he has shared that stage at major fairs, festivals, tours, and events nationwide with country superstars including Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, and Eric Church. Jason is a proud father, loving husband, and family man. With a maturity and down home confidence that exudes from his cowboy ways, Jason Savory is on his way.
