David Choi
Southern California based singer-songwriter David Choi found fame after posting his first music video on YouTube, titled YouTube: A Love Song and in a week it had received an overwhelming half-a-million views. This launched Choi’s idea to continue producing witty lyrics and high quality content for his soon to be reckoned fans and viewership.

A father who is also a recognized musician in his own rights, and a mother who runs a record store, Choi’s parents undoubtedly had a huge influence on his music career. At a young age, David was required to play the piano and violin--an experience that he did not enjoy. Presently, David has three original albums and currently working on a fourth.

Choi’s original songs and covers have been heard on NBC, FOX, VH1, MTV, A&E, E!, Travel Channel, Style Network, PBS, Food Network Disney, Samsung, and various soap operas internationally. David has also partnered up with companies such as W Hotel, Kellogg’s, Starburst, the American Cancer Society, General Electric, Samsung, JCPenney, and AT&T (It Can Wait).

As of September 2014, David Choi’s YouTube Channel had over 995,000+ subscribers, over 92,000,000 total views, followed by a his FB, with over 371,000+, Instagram at 70,000+. His social reach has brought him to countries including but not limited to Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, and many more.

David Choi was recently featured at the TedXTalks Orange County, A Beautiful Mind where he spoke about how, “...creativity is boundless.” Choi was also recognized and landed front page on the nationally circulated magazine, KoreAm Journal, December 2013 issue. Working with celebrity musicians like Macy Gray and interviewed by Larry King, David enjoys talking about his journey from from posting, “YouTube A Love Song” to receiving over 7 Million Views on his hit original “That Girl,” on youtube.

In early 2014, David’s hit original, “By My Side”, was licensed by an Indonesian based music label. David partnered up with the beautiful Maudy Ayunda, an acclaimed singer-songwriter from Jakarta, Indonesia to re-release the hit song. “By My Side” hit #1 in iTunes Indonesia, and is played in radio daily.
Tess Henley - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Tess Henley
Last March, soul singer-songwriter Tess Henley caught the ear of multi-Grammy winning producer, Don Was (Rolling Stones, John Mayer, Bonnie Raitt), who described Tess as "a true voice & a strong sense of who she is. When I listened to her perform, I could envision the complete record we would make together. She has a true gift.

Was selected Henley from over 10,000 performers as part of Guitar Center's Singer-Songwriter Artist Discovery Program.

Recorded at Hollywood's Henson Studios (birthplace of many celebrated projects like Carole King's Tapestry, and Joni Mitchell's Blue), Henley's Wonderland EP credits renowned musicians including James Gadson on drums (Beck, Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers), James "Hutch" Hutchinson on bass (Bonnie Raitt, BB King, Al Green), Mark Goldenberg on guitar (Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt), Michito Sanchez on percussion (Train, Aretha Franklin), Mike Finnigan on organ (Jimi Hendrix, Michael McDonald) & string arranger Davide Rossi (Coldplay, Ed Sheeran).

Tess began Suzuki training for piano at age three & by age five was dissecting harmonies that even her mother – a singer by trade – found difficult.

Henley's songs have won over $100,000 in awards & honors within the past few years.
My Silent Bravery (Acoustic) - (Set time: 8:25 PM)
My Silent Bravery (Acoustic)
Billboard Magazine states, "My Silent Bravery plays like a major label signing, from its production savvy, eloquent lyrics, authoritative imaging, polished web site, a dedicated Northeast U.S. fan following, merchandising, and most important, a chockablock collection of winning songs. My Silent Bravery is destined to make major noise."

My Silent Bravery symbolizes persistence, perseverance and inner strength to overcome obstacles in the face of adversity. It is this type of determination that helped Matthew Wade of My Silent Bravery overcome a sports injury in his youth which led him to pursue his passion in music. The injury opened the door to spirituality and a higher calling. Matthew realized he wanted to become a better person and a more sharing individual. Through personal work and transformation, he learned the importance of “paying it forward” and now feels one of his missions in life is to help inspire others to do the same by delivering his positive message to the masses through the music of My Silent Bravery.

Diamond from Coal is the latest and fourth LP from MSB and it recently debuted in the Top 40 of the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Best-Sellers chart. The album was produced by Anthony Resta (Collective Soul, Guster, Shawn Mullins) & Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray, Augustana) and was recorded in Boston and Los Angeles. The second single off the album “On My Side” was recently remixed by Grammy award winning Mike Mangini (Joss Stone, David Byrne, Smash Mouth) and Peter Zizzo, (Avril Levine, Jennifer Lopez, Jason Mraz) in New York. The song was the runner up for "Song of the Year" award in the Songwriting competition Song of the Year. The music video for the first single off of the new album entitled "Amazing" was picked up for rotation on MTV.

Can't Quit Deluxe Edition the third LP from MSB was also produced by Resta and features a track with Grammy nominated recording artist, Matisyahu. The Deluxe Edition also features the new remix track, Four Yearz, produced by Kool Kojak (Flo Rida, Kesha, Katy Perry).The album’s three singles, Can’t Quit, To Give (featuring Matisyahu), and Burnt Out (Acoustic) have collectively amassed over 1 million views on youtube with Burnt Out (acoustic) reaching as high as #2 on youtube’s most popular page . (www.youtube.com/mysilentbravery). To Give (featuring Matisyahu) was nominated at the Independent Music Awards 2013 for best Social Action Song. Can't Quit was nominated for album of the year at Indie Music Digest and the album’s first single and title track also picked up honorable mention for the songwriting competition, Song of the Year.

The Cant Quit release came on the heels of MSB's first two albums “Uncharted Territory”, “Are You Prepared” and successful placements on the CW's One Tree Hill, CBS’ People Choice Awards, NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly, MTV's Real World and True Life, The Oxygen Network's Bad Girls Club, the History Channel's American Pickers and many others. These placements, along with spins on over a combined 500 AAA, A/C and CMJ reporting college radio stations, a top ten hit on the FMQB A/C chart, have helped the band continue to turn heads, make noise and gain local and national supporters alike. Boston Music critic Bill Copeland predicts “MSB may be Boston's Next Big Thing”. While the UK’s Neil Thomas at Rock and Roll View questions, “Why this artist doesn't have the backing of a major label yet is quite beyond me.”

My Silent Bravery played 300 shows between 2009-2011 and from 2012-2014 MSB shared the stage with national acts including Daughtry, Delta Rae, Howie Day, Kris Allen, John Waite, The Wailers, Candlebox, Ryan, Cabrera, Jason Castro, Teddy Geiger, Tyler Hilton, Ed Kowalczyk (Live) and Rusted Root. MSB recently toured with Tyler Ward in August 2014 and will be joining Anna Nalick on some dates this fall. Diamond from Coal the Remixes is the next project for MSB and will be released this winter.
