2018 Lineup

Will Dailey is an acclaimed independent recording and performing artist and artist advocate. His sound has been described as having a rich vintage vibe while having a firm appreciation of AM rock, pop and big hooks leading famed Rock journalist Dan Aquilante to call him "the real deal". Dailey's last album was met with stellar reviews, over 9 million spins on Spotify, top 20 on Billboard Heat Seeker chart and won Album of the Year in the Boston Music Awards, New England Music Awards and Improper Bostonian Magazine. Dailey, who is already a three-time winner of the Boston Music Award for Best Singer/Songwriter also won Artist of the Year in 2014 and best male vocalist in 2015 and 2016. Dailey's music has been featured on over 50 TV programs and films. His new album, Golden Walker, was just released in June of 2018.

WE, Parsonsfield's new ep, was released March 9. American Songwriter premiered the video for the first single, Kick Out The Windows, and Folk Alley premiered the album. Kick Out The Windows and Take Me Back have been added to Folk Pop, Fresh Folk and Roots Rising playlists on Spotify, alongside artists like Ray LaMontagne, Joseph, The Lumineers, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Lord Huron and Mumford & Sons.

City Rivals was born in early 2014 when songwriter, Greg McKenna (of Letters To Cleo) enlisted Michael Coen and Matt Diekman (of The Bleedin Bleedins/Midatlantic) to collaborate on a hand full of songs he had in his music catalog. After a few rehearsals, City Rivals went into the studio and recorded this first round of songs including the track "Another Day". Shortly after the first round of recordings finished, City Rivals welcomed multi talented musician, Max Toste on drums and vocals. This fleshed out the band but something was still missing, that is when singer songwriter John Coen on guitar was added to complete its line up. City Rivals enlisted Bleu McAuley to come in and produce the new songs "Dancin' in the Sand" and "Come Around". City Rivals went back to Ice Station Zebra to record with Ducky and producer Ed Valauskas to record the final 2 songs on City Rivals debut 5-song EP that will be released this fall.

Long the favored sons of Boston, Dalton & the Sheriffs announced their arrival on the national scene this past January when their independent debut album After the Parade landed on four Billboard charts.

Veterans of numerous same-stage opening slots for artists such as Sam Hunt, Lee Brice, and Walker Hayes, the band is making its second appearance at CMA Fest on the Acoustic Corner Stage on June 10th and was selected to open both days of Rock the South in Cullman, Alabama. The band tours extensively through the northeast, anchored by a string of packed headlining shows at Boston's legendary Paradise Rock Club.

Latrell James is a hip-hop artist/producer from Boston, MA. Coming off his foundational, coming-of-age debut project Twelve, James has become nationally recognized for his sincere sense of artistic character, conceptually honest songwriting and versatile production skills, working with a wide range of well-known talent including Lil Dicky, J.I.D., Cousin Stizz, Khary, Michael Christmas, Pro Era's Aaron Rose and many more.

James' strong work ethic, exceptional live performance skills and genuine desire to contribute toward the growth of Boston's flourishing hip-hop scene have made him one of the more respected artists from the area. After garnering much attention as the voice behind Cheerios' 'Good Goes Around' nationally-aired commercial campaign, James is gearing up to release his new project that will be dropping later this year. Fans can look forward to an evolution of James' original, authentic sound and by representing his newly created Same Difference Collective, Latrell's mentality is set on a promising future, "I used to want to be the best rapper. Now, I just want to be the greatest influence".

Sarah Borges has spent the last decade touring, learning and transforming from Americana chanteuse to American music journeywoman. Her sound remains as eclectic as ever, representing what Borges likes to call "the sum total sound of my record collection": a little bit twangy, some kind of cowpunk and a whole lot of hearfelt rock and roll. 

Together with her band the Broken Singles and also as a solo artist, Borges has logged some serious touring hours in almost all of the great 48 as well as in Europe. She's been nominated for an Americana Music Award, won multiple Boston Music Awards, and has had songs featured in The Sons of Anarchy and The Night Shift.

Most importantly though, Sarah Borges has earned a reputation as an immensely engaging live performer. Audience participation, storytelling and spontaneity add a unique element to a show that features stellar songs and Borges's tough and tender voice.
