FALL OUT BOY – who won BEST ALTERNATIVE BAND at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards and was just nominated for Top Rock Artist and Top Rock Song (“Centuries”) at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards – have cemented their position as one of rock music’s biggest-selling bands.
Their sixth studio album American Beauty/American Psycho debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and peaked at #1 on iTunes in more than 22 countries upon its January 20, 2015 release. The album – released on Island Records & DCD2 Records – debuted with more than 218,000 units consumed. The album’s first single “Centuries” has been certified platinum and has more than 80 million streams between YouTube and Spotify alone. The band is currently on a global tour in support of the record.
American Beauty/American Psycho is the follow-up album to the GRAMMY-nominated band’s gold-certified album Save Rock and Roll, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on iTunes in 27 countries upon its April 2012 release and features the multiplatinum hit “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)” and hit “Alone Together.” Save Rock and Roll is the band’s second #1 debut; Platinum selling “Infinity On High” topped the chart in 2007 which followed multi-platinum breakthrough album “From Under The Cork Tree” released in 2005. Fall Out Boy has also written the song “Immortals,” featured in the Oscar®-nominated Disney hit movie Big Hero 6, which topped the box office upon its November 7 release and has already surpassed $120 million at the domestic U.S. box office and topped $4 billion globally.

Merging country, pop, and rock elements into a sharp contemporary sound, THE BAND PERRY is comprised of siblings Kimberly Perry (lead vocals, guitar, and piano), Reid Perry (bass guitar), and Neil Perry (drums, mandolin, and accordion). The group officially formed in the summer of 2005, although the siblings had been singing together at home and in various configurations and bands since their childhood years in Mobile, Alabama. The Band Perry’s eponymous full-length debut was one of the big country hits of 2010, thanks to the number one singles “If I Die Young” and “All Your Life,” plus the Top Ten single “You Lie.” These singles kept the Band Perry on the charts into 2012, by which time the trio was attempting to record a second album with new producer Rick Rubin. During the sessions, they abandoned Rubin for producer Dann Huff, who helmed the finished album, Pioneer, which appeared in April of 2013 preceded by the number one single “Better Dig Two” and “Done.” The album topped the country charts, hit number two on the Billboard 200, and was supported by months of touring throughout North America and Western Europe. The following year, their cover of John Hartford’s “Gentle on My Mind,” a song that had won Glen Campbell two Grammys in 1968, was featured on the soundtrack for the documentary film Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me. The Band Perry version went on to win a Grammy in 2015 for Best Country Duo/Group Performance.
A soulful singer/songwriter from a small English town with a penchant for crafting moving and evocative folk-pop confections in the vein of Ed Sheeran, Foy Vance, and Ben Howard, JAMES BAY hails from the North Hertfordshire market town of Hitchin. Bay honed his skills regionally, eventually landing high-exposure support slots with Tom Odell, John Newman, and Kodaline before inking a record deal with Republic/Universal in 2012. He began recording material soon after, and charted the single “When We Were on Fire” in 2013. One year later, he landed a pair of songs in the British Top Ten; first, “Let It Go” peaked at number ten, and by the end of 2014, “Hold Back the River” hit number two (and charted in ten other countries). Bay’s first full-length album, Chaos and the Calm, appeared in March 2015, in time for him to play a handful of American dates, including showcases at the South by Southwest Music Conference in Austin, Texas.
ZELLA DAY is a Pisces water sign, Arizona native raised in the mountains. Elevated 7,200 feet above the Phoenix valley, Zella was nestled into a log cabin with an acoustic guitar in a town surrounded by the Sitgreaves National Forest and Apache reservation. Immersed in music at a young age, her family owning the only coffee house in town with live music, Z was apart of a very small artist community that supported her natural desire to write music. Now residing in Los Angeles, Zella Day incorporates her simplistic roots and blends them with the eclectic sounds of the West Coast.
