Nick Black is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable names in the pop/soul music scene. His highly entertaining live show experience features smooth vocals, soaring falsetto, and blazing guitar. Nick’s newest single “One Night Love” was released July 30th, 2018 to critical acclaim along with a neon-colored hula hoop extravaganza of a music video. Produced by Black and Memphis producer James Bennett, and mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Brad Blackwood, “One Night Love” pushes Nick headlong into pop and funk territory. With hints of Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars having always been a staple of Nick’s music, they’ve truly come to the forefront of his sound in this new adventure.

Nick released his last album SUMMER + SPRING in 2017 to critical acclaim, featuring two music videos: one for the title track and one for “Joy to the Girl”. SUMMER + SPRING fused classic Memphis R&B with the spirit of new soul and funk coming out of the Bluff City. Nick is now touring nationally throughout the Midsouth and east coast of the US backed up by his band of ten years.

About Armies:
Armies is a music group from Portland Maine, formed in 2015 consisting of Acclaimed songwriter Dave Gutter (David Bowie, Tedeshi Trucks Band, Aaron Neville, The Roots, Gramatik, and Imogen Heap), Anna Lombard, Jon Roods, Elsworth, and Ryan Curless.The band define their music as Rock/R&B dance music with a sound that has been heavily influenced by hip hop, gospel, funk and psychedelic French pop of the sixties. Their self-titled debut was named #1 of "15 Great Albums You Didn't Hear this year" by Rolling Stone Magazine.

“With Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin’s duets in mind, their voices blend perfectly on an excellent set about characters that are sad, vengeful, seedy, sneaky and jealous.”   - Rolling Stone

"Fiery, warm, and a full of gritty storytelling charm, Armies’ sophomore album Armies II is a smoothe, soulful exploration of personalities. Vibey, fully-realized, and lyrically provocative, it’s a powerful next step as the indie quintet find their voice and hone in on their artistic identity."  - Atwood Magazine

About Kenya Hall:
Kenya Hall is an indie-soul musician from Portland, Maine who has been described as a “Soul Powerhouse” by Rolling Stone Magazine. Drawing her writing and performing influences from Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and Sharon Jones, Kenya is not only relevant in what she says, but poignant in how she relays it. Leaning heavily on Soul, Hip Hop, Funk, and the seed of what makes a rock and roll artist, when Kenya sings, everyone in the room understands.
