- Friday – Samm Henshaw -The full-length debut from South London-bred singer/songwriter Samm Henshaw, Untidy Soul is the sound of a truly singular artist fully embracing his unpredictable nature. Centered on the commanding vocal presence he’s shown in touring with the likes of Chance the Rapper, Untidy Soul captures his chameleonic sensibilities in a joyful convergence of R&B and soul and hip-hop and pop, revealing the free-flowing imagination that’s made him a natural match for collaborations with polymaths like Pharrell Williams. And in his lyrics, Henshaw drifts between self-examination and elaborate storytelling, ultimately creating a detailed document of his self-discovery in recent years.
- Saturday – Eric Hutchinson – Eric Hutchinson is an international platinum-selling singer, songwriter and seasoned touring artist. He has performed in all 50 states and has shared the stage with acts such as Jason Mraz, Amos Lee, Ingrid Michaelson, O.A.R., and Michael Franti. His single “Rock & Roll” earned him his first gold record in the United States and the song became a #1 hit in several countries. The songwriting and musicianship of SING ALONG! continues Eric’s recent trend of exploring across musical genres, as he tries to make sense of the world around him.
