Jamie Kent

A fresh 26-year-old singer-songwriter with big dreams and an ever-expanding fanbase, artist Jamie Kent’s future as a performer looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern artists like Ray Lamontagne and Amos Lee as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Since the release of his debut LP in 2011, the singer-songwriter has been collaborating with his band, Jamie Kent & The Options, to cultivate a sound with a strong folk rock and Americana influence.  Kent has no fear of hard work, playing over 200 shows a year including tours with Huey Lewis & The News, The Wood Brothers, Marc Broussard, Ellis Paul, and multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival. Kent is supported by The Collective, an amazing grassroots group of fans who help advise and fund his career in exchange for access to exclusive music, merchandise, and vote in the major decisions he makes. Additionally, he has received international radio play on over 120 stations (including BBC Radio), had his single “Changes”licensed by The Boston Red Sox, and was the recipient of a 2013 ASCAP Plus Award for his songwriting. His new EP, titled Embers & Ashes, features five songs that showcase a deeper sense of confidence as a songwriter, and as a singer. It's first single, "Broke, Not Broken" was recently premiered on RollingStone.com.

LUXDELUXE

Over the past 2 years, LuxDeluxe has recorded a full length album called Hollow Ground as well as a single with blues harp legend, Magic Dick of the J. Geils Band. Playing shows around New England, the band has developed the reputation of being one of the most exciting live bands in the region.

For the past year the band has been working on their awaited sophmore album "It's A Girl". The album is scheduled to release on April 12 2014 followed by a national tour.
