Sara Bareilles first achieved mainstream critical praise in 2007 with her widely successful hit, "Love Song" which reached #1 in 22 countries around the world from her debut album LITTLE VOICE. Since then, the Eureka, CA native has gone on to sell over 1 million copies of her debut album, earn 3 Grammy nominations including Song of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Love Song." Bareilles' critically acclaimed sophomore release KALEIDOSCOPE HEART was released in September of 2010, debuted at #1 on the Billboard top 200 chart and has gained critical praise everywhere including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, People and Los Angeles Times. The album yielded the hit single “King of Anything,” which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and was certified platinum by the RIAA. In 2011, Bareilles joined the judge’s panel on the hit NBC show “The Sing-Off.” In early 2012, Bareilles released a documentary called “A Trace of the Sun: Volunteering in Japan,” which chronicled her trip to Japan where she joined All Hands Volunteer efforts in the city of Ofunato after the 2011 earthquake and subsequent tsunami that devastated coastal cities and left over 26,000 people without homes. Soon after she released her critically acclaimed ONCE UPON ANOTHER TIME EP, which was produced by singer/songwriter and fellow “Sing-Off” judge Ben Folds. Sara’s highly anticipated third studio album, THE BLESSED UNREST is set for release on July 16th through Epic Records. For more information, please visit www.sarabmusic.com.
Hot on the heels of a move to Los Angeles from their former home of Brooklyn, Harper Blynn continue to turn heads with their soaring brand of rock. Bucking a pervasive trend in modern live music, the band avoids prerecorded tracks and auto-tuned vocals, instead relying on their instruments and voices to generate their epic soundscapes. After making albums with legendary producers David Kahne (Paul McCartney, The Strokes), Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris) and John O'Mahony (Metric, Coldplay), Harper Blynn have been busy working on their forthcoming full-length, as well as cowriting and playing on Sara Bareilles' new album The Blessed Unrest. TV shows like Revenge, The Vampire Diaries, House of Lies and Pretty Little Liars have all taken note and featured the band's music in the past year. Rounded out with upcoming tour dates in the fall of 2013 with Bareilles and One Republic, Harper Blynn show no signs of slowing down.
