Katie Herzig has steadily become a fixture in Nashville's up-and-coming indie music scene. She's spent the last few years touring the US, sharing the stage with artists like Brandi Carlile and The Fray and been apart of the Ten Out of Tenn and Hotel Cafe tours. In 2008, after her song "Heaven's My Home" was nominated for a Grammy, Katie was featured in Billboard Magazine’s “Now Hear This” as well as one of PASTE Magazine’s 25 “Best of What’s Next” Artists. Her songs have been featured in several television shows and movies, including Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, Sex and the City: The Movie, Going the Distance and New Year’s Eve. Most recently, Katie’s music has been featured in a national Target advertisement and in the trailer for the film We Bought A Zoo. Her latest record “The Waking Sleep” is a spellbinding, uniquely immersive listening experience that manages to be at once playful and impassioned--challenging and comfortable---intimate and epic… which is exactly what listeners have come to expect of Katie Herzig. She continues to out-do herself with each new musical endeavor.
Since skyrocketing to stardom as the winner of the 2009 season of American Idol, Kris Allen has enjoyed five singles on the Billboard charts. His self-titled debut album featured his hit single “Live Like We’re Dying” which has a combined digital sales of over 1.7 million. Since the release of his album he has toured with Keith Urban, Maroon 5, Barenaked Ladies, Lifehouse as well as headlining his own club tour.
On his new album THANK YOU CAMELLIA, Kris Allen delivers on everything his fans love him for and more. The album is a showcase for the easy, lived-in richness of Kris’ voice as well as his knack for crafting hook-filled pop melodies and writing heartfelt lyrics that explore the ups and downs of love. These talents were very much on display on Kris’ 2009 self-titled debut album, which featured the 1.7 million-selling hit single “Live Like We’re Dying” and was released a few months after the Arkansas native won the eighth season of American Idol. For THANK YOU CAMELLIA, Kris has cranked everything up a notch by co-writing every song and being heavily involved throughout each stage of the writing, recording, and production process.
