Kelley James - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
Kelley James
On the road or in the studio, music for Kelley James is more than a passion. His reputation for delivering quick-witted lyrics over acoustic guitars, hip-hop beats and freestyle flows has developed a strong following from fans and media alike. Kelley, a California native, has released two full-length records, including his debut album “In A City That Has No Name” in 2007, and three EP’s.

Kelley released his latest EP, “The Recent Future” in June 2011, which carefully infuses pop melodies with laid-back hip-hop flows. The record combines lyrical sincerity with feel-good melodies, showcasing Kelley’s range as a songwriter. “Perfect to Me” is a rhythmic hip-hop throw-back with a powerful sway-worthy chorus. The first single on the EP, “Standing on a Rooftop”, features candid lyrics which ease into carefree reggae rhythms.

Kelley’s strong fan connection and unique style has attracted corporate partners such as Crunk Energy, Ethika, Honda, Muscle Milk, Oakley and Vans while playing events for premiere brands like 944 Magazine, Columbia, Ducati, Google, MySpace Music, NoHo, Oakley, O Organics, the Phoenix Suns, Red Bull, Ryan Sheckler Foundation, SPIN Magazine and Zumiez.

He has played shows with Sara Bareilles, Jason Derulo, LMFAO, O.A.R., Mike Posner, Joshua Radin, Shwayze, Slightly Stoopid, State Radio, T-Pain, Kate Voegele, Tyrone Wells, Matt Wertz and the Ying Yang Twins.
Ernie Halter - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Ernie Halter
"Influenced by some of the legendary names of pop and soul, such as the Beatles, Elton John, Otis Redding, and Stevie Wonder, Californian Ernie Halter first began to make waves for himself with the release of his 2005 collection, Lo-Fidelity. The singer and songwriter got his start playing a small -- mostly covers -- coffeehouse gig in 1992, and was able to maintain the difficult position of being a working musician (and closet songwriter) by simply paying his dues, working on songs in his spare time, and playing in coffeehouses and smaller gigs to keep active on the scene and to sharpen his skills. Eventually, word of mouth and the Internet community on websites such as MySpace and YouTube worked in Halter's favor, and by 2007 -- and his next release, Congress Hotel (on Rock Ridge Music) -- he had built up quite a buzz, and the staunchly indie Halter could be seen touring throughout much of the United States." (Chris True All Music Guide)

Halter's subsequent releases, Starting Over (2008) debuted on the iTunes Rock Album Charts at #22, Ernie Halter Live (2009) debuted on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Album Charts at #9, and the latest release Franklin & Vermont (2010) debuted on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Album Charts at #2. Ernie Halter's 4U (2010), a free and exclusive sampler, quickly became the #1 Mp3 Album download on Amazon.com. Ernie's online fanbase has grown to 10,000+ YouTube subscribers and nearly 500,000 followers on social networking site Twitter. Halter has shared the studio and stage with pop icons such as: Neil Young, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, Sara Barielles, Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Hanson, Eric Hutchinson, Drake Bell, Sister Hazel, Shooter Jennings, Corrine May, and Lady Antebellum. His songs have been heard on General Hospital, Cougar Town, Army Wives, MTV's The Real World, Disney's Sonny With A Chance, and more.
Dylan Chambers - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Dylan Chambers
Dylan Chambers is an accomplished singer, songwriter, and thespian (Troupe 3709), out of Arlington, Texas. He has been performing on stage since the age of five in many different fields. He first picked up the guitar at the age of thirteen after being inspired by the fast-driven music of Green Day and seeing his stepfather play around the house. He really started appreciating theatre and the joy that it gave him to be on stage when he came to Theatre Arlington, a local community theatre in Texas, joining the cast of "Oliver!"as the lead role, Oliver Twist. Later on, he joined TA's youth touring group "Standing Room Only" for three years performing well over two-hundred times for many different faces in Texas. In 2005, Dylan joined The Political Monkeys, a punk/funk/rock n' roll band as the frontman/rhythem guitarist playing numerous gigs in North East, Texas. Two years later, he quit the band and moved on to collaborate with other musicians such as Scott Hoying (“What is Wrong?”) Alex Hardaway ("The Negative Blues"), Connor Lidell ("On The Way Back"), Paul Demer from Second Story Feedback, Mitch Grassi and many others. Dylan then moved on to starting his own band with two friends from Lamar HS. The Dylan Chambers Band played many shows around the Metroplex as well as headlining at the Levitt Pavilion in Downtown Arlington after winning first place in Arlington’s Virtual Battle of the Bands contest. Since the band broke up, Dylan has been playing around as a solo acoustic musician. Over the past few years, he has gained quite a following from playing at the Levitt Pavilion. He was featured as one of four local singer/songwriters in their “Hometown Rising Stars” concert and even opened for the legendary Three Dog Night during the summer of 2010.

On the personal side, Dylan graduated from James Martin High School in 2010. He was accepted into the Berklee College of Music in Boston (Alumni: John Mayer, Quincy Jones, Dream Theater, Diana Krall, etc.) where he was one of fifteen musicians in the US to be accepted into the songwriting, guitar and performance program. Unfortunately, it was a little to expensive so he will be moving to Austin in January of '11 to start breaking his way into the music scene down there. Dylan continues to contribute to the world by sharing his music to anyone who is willing to listen.
