Craig Wayne Boyd
Texas-born and raised country singer and multi-instrumentalist Craig Wayne Boyd, who came to the public's attention when he was a contestant, and the eventual winner, on the seventh season of the television show The Voice in 2014, showed an affinity for music even as a child. Growing up in the Dallas, Texas suburb of Mesquite, he was drawn to gospel and country, and was active in his church choir, eventually becoming its director. He moved to Nashville to try for his dream of a career in the music business in the early 2000s, and soon had a publishing deal with EMI. Things looked promising. Yet Boyd, after ten years of songwriting, local gigs, national support touring, and trying everything he could to further that dream in Nashville, was on the verge of quitting music because of financial and other pressures. All that changed when he auditioned for the seventh season of The Voice. Ending up on Blake Shelton's team, Boyd's singing voice, playing, and easy musical versatility made him a fan favorite, and eventually made him the overall winner.
Roem Baur - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Roem Baur
Roem Baur is a unique singer, songwriter, and self-taught multi-instrumentalist who cites Freddie Mercury, Bonnie Raitt, Roy Orbison, & choral singing among his influences. He possesses "a ridiculous vocal range and a troubadour's soul," (RSLBlog.com) a sound that is seemingly from another musical era than his own. A mix of pure tenor, groove, and "a voice that seems to burn with fire" (Examiner.com) his live shows thrill audiences and peers alike. From superstars like Pink, Chris Isaak, Blue Oyster Cult, Pat Benatar, to the Counting Crows' Adam Duritz, Baur has been praised publicly and to millions on social media for his "Wild" (Entertainment Weekly) stage show and his wailing version of blues, soul and 60's-inspired rock n' roll.
