    House of Blues presents Andy Grammer With Alex & Sierra, Paradise Fears From hustling street performer on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade to Platinum-selling recording artist, it seems like just yesterday that ANDY GRAMMER was discovered by Steve Greenberg and signed to S-Curve Records With his 2011 self-titled debut album, Grammer became the first male pop star in a decade, since John Mayer in 2002, to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first two singles, “Keep Your Head Up” and “Fine By Me,” certified Platinum and Gold respectively, selling more than 15 million downloads combined In just a few short years, Grammer has gone on to sell over 100,000 albums, play sold out venues nationwide, perform onstage with Taylor Swift, Train, and Colbie Caillat, appear on an array of national TV shows, receive major song placements in film and TV, receive two BMI Pop Music Awards, grace the cover of national touring trade magazine Pollstar and present at their annual awards show, among many other accomplishments While hard at work on his highly anticipated sophomore album titled Magazines or Novels, Grammer released “Back Home,” a joyously anthemic track that illustrates his knack for writing infectious, relatable songs remains strong, as does his soaring voice It also showcases the musician’s growth since his last full-length release On the new album, Grammer reinforces his place among elite male pop artists through honest reflections of the impressive ride he’s been on during the past couple of years “‘Back Home’ is about those friends, specific places and vivid memories that remind us who we are,” says Grammer, who wrote the song while far from home on a national headline tour, hoping to recapture that which is always part of him “Back Home”is already lesbian porn wowing critics and fans alike The son of a Grammy-nominated children’s performer Red Grammer, he often joined his dad on-stage to sing, promoting his fierce ambition to succeed His father instilled his work ethic and taught him to respect his audience “I saw what it took to cultivate an artistic career,” Grammer says By ninth grade, Grammer taught himself to write songs on his dad’s guitar, with a first group, Out of the Blue, which played his first original composition, “Doorstep,” at a battle of the bands contest Hearing the 1998 Grammy-winning album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill “shifted things inside of me and I loved it,” says Grammer, who cites Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Common and Coldplay among his musical influences on his mix of hip-hop, acoustic singer/songwriters and piano rock His self-titled S-Curve Records debut was the product of intensive, deliberate practice and a personable performance style that involved entertaining on the streets of Santa Monica with his car battery-powered amplifier and acoustic guitar Songs from the upbeat “Keep Your Head Up” and the breezy “Fine by Me,” to the jubilant horns of “The Pocket” and the emotional “Miss Me,” found Grammer creating pop songs with both heartfelt, relatable lyrics and instantly hummable hooks His background singing on the streets helped him hone his performance style, and clued him in on audience expectations The success of his debut album brought him to places he had dreamed of, but never expected to visit “I’m just trying to track down the truth,” says the LA-born performer, who grew up in New York “My favorite thing is writing from a bird’s-eye view, whether it’s a break-up or a good relationship I like to be far enough away to see the whole scope of what’s occurring” His platinum debut Top 5 hit single “Keep Your Head Up”was admonishing himself to maintain the faith in the wake of frustration The groundbreaking interactive video – a partnership between VEVO, S-Curve and innovative tech company Interlude – won an MTV O Award for Most Innovative, topping Arcade Fire, Robyn and OK Go!  The clip starred The Office’s Rainn Wilson, whom Grammer calls “a gracious, amazing guy,” he met through a former roommate “Keep Your Head Up” has been heard on several TV shows and films, including a prominent placement in the movie “Pitch Perfect” where the main characters sang the song Grammer’s second single off his debut album,“Fine by Me,” also sailed into the Top 10 on the Adult Pop chart and wascertified gold Grammer describes the track as “about having my heart stolen” talks about love as “an all-or-nothing emotion” Although he initially tried to play it cool, he proceeded to “falling so hard in about four days” “Miss Me,”his third single off his album, climbed to #15 at Hot AC Music videos for all three hit singles reached the Top 10 onVH1’s “Top 20” weekly video countdown “I appreciate the opportunity to get in and move things around in people,” he says “The best gigs take place when you can see the whole room has moved somewhere together” In the three years since Andy Grammer released his self-titled debut album, the Los Angeles native singer-songwriter known for his vibrant pop/rock/soul mix has taken an incredible journey It’s widely known that it takes 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to become an expert at anything   Andy Grammer logged his 10,000 hours of practice on the streets of Los Angeles With his car battery-powered amplifier and acoustic guitar in tow, Grammer managed to sing his way from the streets to the center of the music industry Even though he knew music would be his path, Grammer never assumed it would be an easy road or that he could take any success for granted He played any corner that would have him—using every experience to hone not only his songwriting craft but to learn how to understand his audience His desire to be heard led him to the streets: “I didn’t know what else to do So I just went out there and started playing” The success of Grammer’s album would exceed even his expectations  “That I even get to play a sold-out show where people know the words, and I'm singing about things I'm connected to is such a blessing,” he says  “It’s the equivalent of a nine-year-old saying ‘I want to be an astronaut when I grow up’ and then getting to go to the moon This year I've been to the moon, and it’s awesome” Performing live remains a communal experience for Grammer, who’s toured with Train, Gavin DeGraw, Colbie Caillat, Mat Kearney, the Plain White T’s, Parachute, and Natasha Bedingfield - among others “As an artist, you have an opportunity to get in and move things around in people It’s one of the only times during the day where they say, ‘I’m going to open up to some other stuff here,’ and you have that hour to get in and move stuff around and put it all back together Those are the best gigs, where you can see that the whole room has moved somewhere together”

    House of Blues presents Dirty River Boys The Dirty River Boys are paving their own road as they travel it They are a testament to the idea that “if you can dream it, you can do it,” moving with determination ever closer to the light Above all is their belief in their music It motivates them and provides exultation for each member, as well as for the audiences who have become fans by the force field the band creates in live performance Steely intention aside, there is a magic to being in the right place with the right stuff at the right time Home in El Paso, the Dirty River Boys yearned to make music the centerpiece of their lives Then they played their very first Austin gig, a happy hour set at hipster haunt, Lustre Pearl The music they presented was energetic and infectious, though stripped down acoustic The joy was unmistakable And a new path with exciting possibilities was being born The band migrated to Austin shortly thereafter, where they thrive amidst the other musicians in town, and love the strong sense of community they found “Being in Austin, with so many great bands, it makes you up your game” Travis Stearns and Nino Cooper met in the music scene in El Paso They started gigging every once in a while, while they waited patiently for the day they could dedicate themselves to music 24/7 The Dirty River Boys trio formed 3 years ago, when Marco Gutierrez quit his job and school to join the band “We had to go against full bands in El Paso, us with three people with acoustic instruments It shows if you are consistent and serious about your music, you can really make it We put our hearts out there every night People see that” They added an upright bass player about a year and a half ago Colton James joined for a 90 minute set at the River Road Icehouse It was a trial by fire and a foursome was forged The new album, Science Of Flight, was recorded at Yellow Dog Studio in South Austin, Texas Marco, Nino, Travis and CJ put aside just five days for the process They played everything on the album themselves, only tapping on the legendary Kim Deschamps to lay down pedal steel Expect surprises; Wurlitzer, marching drum sounds, train whistles, a rattlesnake The band was mindful of their ability to recreate the sounds on stage in the live environment The Dirty River Boys are seemingly always on the road, having logged 200,000 miles in the van, though thankfully, the rattlesnake is not a traveling companion Science of Flight has been described by The Dirty River Boys as Western, Fat, and Rock and Roll It touches on myriad emotions with gentle harmonies that shimmer with beauty, acoustic rave-ups, and hook driven tunes

    House of Blues presents JB and the Moonshine Band Some might say the four-piece JB and the Moonshine Band was born the day JB Patterson looked up to see that only three musicians had shown up at his open- call audition in his Tyler, Texas, hometown Fortunately, Gabe Guevara (drums), Hayden McMullen (lead guitar) and Chris Flores (bass guitar) turned out to be the right three and, after a brief musical and personal get-to-know-you session, everyone realized the stars had aligned to bring them together But if you ask JB when the band really started, he’ll reflect back to a time rooted less in music and more in his unfulfilled dreams “My three-year-old son, Parker, is the reason this band exists,” he explains “Because when I learned I was going to be a father, I knew I wanted to be able to tell him he can be whatever he wants to be as long as he sets his mind to it and works hard But I realized there was something I had wanted to do that I never had the guts to try—being a singer/songwriter And I thought to myself, if I’m ever gonna tell my kid that he can be whatever he wants to be, then I’d better at least give this a shot Thankfully, it has worked out But, succeed or fail, you’ve gotta try” Since taking the plunge into the music business, JB and the guys have seen enough success for JB to realize he’s already accomplished his first set of goals In just over three years, JB has written a couple of tunes that wound up atop the Billboard Texas music charts and he and the band have recorded and released two acclaimed albums—Ain’t Goin’ Back to Jail and the current Beer for Breakfast on the Average Joes Entertainment label They’ve also been pounding the road playing shows all over the country The combination of the band’s great chemistry and JB’s excellent songwriting gives these East Texas boys instant credibility wherever they play Whether cranking out no-holds-barred honky-tonk drinking tunes or throttling back to sing about matters of the heart, JB and the Moonshine Band tunes have the ring of truth Mike Ryan is a soulful singer and songwriter with a powerful voice, stunning vocal range and some pretty smooth guitar licks His mature voice and lived-in lyrics make one linger the first time they listen Fortunately, for his loyal audience, he isn’t going away anytime soon In 2010 Mike rose above 80 other competitors to win the 959 The Ranch Pickin’ Party singer/songwriter competition, and every indication pointed to more musical success in the near future His EP The First One was released that summer and produced 2 singles, “Slow Hand” and “Wont Let it Show” that reached the top 25 on the Texas Music Chart Educated and easy going, Mike’s musical influences are as vast and varied as growing up in the internet age allows Some favorites of his would include The Allman Brothers, The Eagles, ZZ Top The Rolling Stones, AC/DC…Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, Bill Withers…Bob Dylan, Elton John, Stevie Wonder… and they continue on down the list for about a mile and a half He spent his college years at the University of North Texas which gave him the opportunity to be influenced and inspired by the large, eclectic musical community there as well Mike Ryan is a genuine guy with genius talent, and the vision to surround himself with first rate musicians to help him maintain his direction, and you can bet that when the curtains roll back they’ll light up the stage
