Rendezvous Music Festival


Chris Stapelton:

Kentucky-born singer, songwriter and producer Chris Stapleton is one of Nashville’s most revered craftsmen, with a 15-year career that includes No. 1 hits, Grammy Award nominations, feature film contributions, the respect of his peers and, now, a new album. Stapleton will release his highly anticipated debut “Traveller” on May 5. He has written five No. 1 songs for George Strait, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Darius Rucker and Josh Turner and contributed cuts to several major motion picture soundtracks. He’s also been nominated for three Grammy Awards and won the International Bluegrass Music Association Emerging Artist of the Year award as a member of The SteelDrivers. His songwriting credits span all genres and artists from Adele to Jason Aldean and he’s recorded with everyone from Miranda Lambert to Don Williams.



Paper Bird  Paper Bird:

Since the band's formation in 2007, Paper Bird has been playing its joyful blend of indie folk, blue-eyed soul, and rock to delighted audiences nationwide. The current lineup includes Mark Anderson (drums), Sarah Anderson (vocals, trumpet), Carleigh Aikens (vocals), Paul DeHaven (guitar), Genevieve Patterson (vocals, keys), and Caleb Summeril (bass, guitar, banjo). Everyone writes for the group, and there is no leader. Paper Bird’s live performances showcase the group’s diversity and good-time vibe. Their rare and beautiful approach to music has led them to be featured on NPR's All Things Considered, in a New York Times story about up and coming Denver bands and, most recently, listed in Paste Magazine's Top 10 Colorado Bands to Watch 


Dave Barnes:

Dave Barnes is a singer-songwriter who is probably best known for Blake Shelton's cut of his song “God Gave Me You” which earned him a Grammy and CMA nomination.  Other songs include the #1 CCM hit "All I Need" (Bethany Dillon), "Until You" (Billy Currington), "Daughter of A Workin' Man" (Danielle Bradbery), and "Mary & Joseph" (Tim McGraw). Barnes is also a veteran artist with nine albums under his belt, including his latest, Hymns For Her which released in February.



Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors:

Music is medicine. Music has always had a medicinal quality to me, and that’s why I started writing songs and touring in the first place. I first needed the medicine in the summer of 1999 when I was seventeen and lost my brother. I took lots of medicine, from Radiohead and Bob Dylan, from Pearl Jam and Otis Redding, from Bob Marley to the Temptations, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to Rage Against the Machine.

After college I hit the road, and I hit it hard. I found a band of agile, competent musicians whose musical library is vast and deep and demanding.. You may have heard our music on TV. We’ve had our songs on dozens of shows like Nashville, Parenthood, How I Met Your Mother. We have toured with artists like the Avett Brothers, John Hiatt, Needtobreathe, and a host of other kindred souls. Our music is simple and heartfelt, built to inhabit people’s day to day lives, like so many of the records I have loved over the long haul in my own life. 


Holly Williams:

Hailing from one of the most famous lineages in American music would surely create challenges for most artists to create their own identity, but not for singer-songwriter Holly Williams. The granddaughter/daughter of Hank Williams, Sr. & Hank Williams, Jr. respectfully, makes her independence evident on her third studio album – The Highway.

Raised in Nashville, Tennessee, Williams embraced music by playing songs on the guitar and writing songs as a teenager. In 2004, her debut album, The Ones We Never Knew, was released and she soon expanded her touring around the world opening for Keith Urban, John Hiatt, and John Prine. The Highway, she says, is her coming of age record. “These songs really brought a focus into my life personally. I turned 30, I got married, my grandparents passed away, I opened a clothing store, my husband tours the world...there’s a lot to keep up with,” says Williams. “But the highway came calling and I suddenly had this serious longing for the road, storytelling, and sharing the life I live.”


The Indigo Girls:

The Indigo Girls (Emily Saliers and Amy Ray) release their sixteenth studio album, One Lost Day, on June 2nd.Vast in its reach, but unified by the traveler's sense of wonder, gratitude, and empathy, One Lost Day moves like a centrifuge, pulling the listener close to linger in the small moment, then casting out onto sonic currents. This is music of the past, present, and future — a boundlessness earned and not bestowed. One Lost Day has a feeling of music composed across time, not just in time. These songs are rooted in tradition and inventive, too: nourished in dark soils, leafing and luminous.

The Indigo Girls have spent thirty-five years performing together, produced sixteen albums (seven gold, four platinum, and one double platinum), earned a Grammy and seven Grammy nominations, and have toured arenas, festivals, and clubs the world over.


Ivory Layne:

Though a newcomer to the pop world, Ivory Layne has been writing music since the age of fourteen. In 2011, she met her current producer, Ed Cash, and together, the two created Ivory's debut EP, Volume One. This record features a collection of energetic, eclectic tracks that showcase her innovative co-production and thoughtful writing. More recently she released her Something's Gonna Happen EP, which includes the single "Something's Gonna Happen" - included on White House Black Market's fall campaign ads. With a sound similar to the likes of Kate Nash, Regina Spektor, and Imogen Heap, Layne weaves simplistic stories into fresh, unconventional melodies paired with smart lyrics.


John Oates:

John Oates was destined to be a musician. Singing from the time he could talk and Playing the guitar since the age of five, his calling in life was never in question. Born in New York City, his family moved to a small town outside of Philadelphia Pennsylvania in the early 1950's.... a move that would change the course of his life.

When John first met Daryl Hall it was their mutual love for urban rhythm and blues blended with the more rural roots of Americana music that created their unique sound. Since the formation of their partnership in the early 70's Hall & Oates have gone on to record 21 albums which have sold over 80 million units making them the most successful duo in rock history.

In January 2015 John released his latest project - a DVD entitled “Another Good Road.” Recorded live in a Nashville studio in one session and featuring some of Music City’s finest musicians and singers, this intimate performance video takes you on yet another musical journey. The video contains rare, seldom seen footage of his family ranch in Colorado and a glimpse into John’s world behind the music.


There are approximately 2,000 miles between Nashville and Los Angeles. Both cities are home to JOHNNYSWIM. However, the duo's music far transcends that distance. It's easy to understand why A Prairie Home Companion declared that Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez are "21st century troubadours." As JOHNNYSWIM, they embody the tradition of the well-traveled singersongwriter while cultivating a modern style that's uniquely their own.

JOHNNYSWIM signed with Sony/RED-distributed Big Picnic Records in 2013. The partnership was struck at the end of a hugely prolific period for the duo that included starring roles in a Nashville production of Smokey Joe's Café and a spot on the Old Crow Medicine Show's sold-out tour of the U.K. Since then, they've performed at MTV's 2013 O Music Awards in Times Square while their songs have appeared in episodes of VH1's Mob Wives and Black Ink Crew.


Kylie Rae Harris:

By age 12, Kylie knew singing is what she wanted to do with her life, thanks to influences like Jerry Jeff Walker and Radney Foster. She’s never strayed from those early influences. Throw in singer/songwriters Walt Wilkins and Patty Griffin and you begin to understand why her lyrics sound so….real.

 “You can just feel something about somebody when they mean what they are singing,” Kylie says. “That’s so important to me. Music is a connecting point with people; it’s fellowship with people. It’s why I love music.”

“Music has always been in me,” she said. “I have to do it. This is all or nothing for me. I’m going to be writing and singing music the rest of my life whether I’m broke or not so I might as well go for it.”
