17 years and over
Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, the Unlikely Candidates are an indie
rock band initially formed as an acoustic duo by childhood friends Kyle
Morris and Cole Male in 2008. Eventually expanding the lineup to include
guitarist Brenton Carney, bassist Jared Hornbeek, and drummer Kevin
Goddard, the band was also able to expand its sound in bigger, more
sweeping directions. In 2013 the band signed on with major-label
Atlantic Records and released their debut EP Follow My Feet.
As one of the hardest-working bands in the southeast, THE VEGABONDS have won over thousands of fans by maintaining an exhaustive touring schedule. Hundreds of shows and two European tours later, the band finds itself on the brink of a global takeover. The band’s high-energy, guitar-driven brand of rootsy rock & roll has made them a favorite across the globe, and the next year promises to be a breakout one for the band on a national stage.
