Langhorne Slim & the Lost at Last Band
Langhorne Slim, hailing originally from Langhorne, PA and now residing in Nashville, is no stranger to the world of popular culture and commercial success. His latest release “Lost At Last Vol. 1” is his sixth full-length album. Throughout his career he has been defined by reflective songwriting and passionate delivery. He recently enjoyed his third appearance on Conan O’Brien’s late-night show, as well as a feature on CBS Saturday Morning, and the highest charting debut of his career. O’Brien, a personal fan of Slim stated, “After one listen, I became an instant, almost obsessive fan.” Slim has consistently toured on his own, and has appeared on extensive worldwide runs throughout his career with artists such as The Lumineers, The Avett Brothers, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Gregory Alan Isakov, Josh Ritter, The Devil Makes Three, Sara Watkins, and more. He’s also appeared on many festival stages, such as Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza, and the Philadelphia Folk Festival.
Low Cut Connie
Low Cut Connie formed in 2010 in Philadelphia and gained national attention when President Obama included one of their tracks on a Spotify playlist in 2015. Front man Adam Weiner performed as a solo artist prior to starting Low Cut Connie. While living in New York City, he played piano in gay bars, karaoke bars, restaurants and ballet classes, often under the name Ladyfingers. Weiner started the project that would become Low Cut Connie with former members Dan Finnemore (from Birmingham, U.K.) and Neil Duncan (from Gainesville, Florida). The band's name refers to a waitress who often wore low-cut tops at a restaurant near where Weiner grew up. The band has been recognized by various media in the US for their high-energy live show, of which the Los Angeles Weekly said "Their ferocious live show...is unmatched in all of rock right now."
Lyndsey Smith has been bringing music to the souls of music lovers for the past 6 years and has been gaining loyal fans on a regional, national and international level. Her Rock'N'Soul style gives her shows high energy and she knows that fans aren't just there as a formality, they are there as part of the show!
Lyndsey Smith is raising the bar as to what music should be and how an album and concert should make each fan feel. Now in her 10th year performing, Smith is raising four sons, working as a performing-arts teacher and vocal coach, and still finds time to get up on stage and belt out a set with Soul Distribution. Their new album “Rhapsodize Me” was just released.
