Gavin DeGraw

Gavin DeGraw’s powerful new album MAKE A MOVE is a victorious and
creative musical return. On the follow-up to 2011’s Sweeter, Gavin DeGraw has experienced a creative and commercial renaissance displaying his even more focused vocal and artistic talent, his assured energy, musically expanded palette, and sharp, detail-driven lyrics. The first single, “Best I Ever Had,” is the most up-tempo thing DeGraw has done yet, charging out of the gate with a galloping rhythm and lively horns. “I feel like this album is the strongest record I’ve made,” DeGraw says. “It’s a clear evolution from what I’ve been doing. I’ve taken more risks, like learning the value of having space in the writing. Silence is louder than the highest note.” “It’s like being born again,” he says. “It’s crazy. I think very few people get to experience that sort of luck-of-the-draw moment.”

DeGraw is referring to the double-platinum success of his single “Not Over You,” a “soulful, majestic ballad” (as Billboard put it) co-written with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder that reached No. 1 on the Hot AC charts, was a top 10 hit at Top 40 radio, and was certified double platinum. The track helped propel Sweeter (which Rolling Stone’s review called “taut, efficient and hook-packed,” going on to praise DeGraw as “an excellent singer”) to a No. 8 debut on the Billboard album chart, his second Top 10 album after his 2008 self-titled release. That album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard’s album chart, and spawned the hit singles “In Love With A Girl” and the gold-certified “We Belong Together.” (The South Fallsburg, NY, native first broke through in 2003 with his platinum debut Chariot, which yielded three hit singles: the No. 1 Top 40 smash “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through,” and the title-track.)

Those who saw DeGraw perform while on tours with Maroon 5, Train, and Colbie Caillat over the past two years have seen his growth and maturation as a performer occur before their eyes. “Making music is still what I’m most passionate about,” he says. “It’s the one thing I’ve always identified with. It’s what I did when I got sent to my room as a kid, and what I did on the way home from a ballgame. You can’t help it; it’s just your thing. So I was lucky enough to have something that pulled me in so aggressively. It’s either this or go to therapy,” he says with a laugh.



Matt Nathanson

Based in San Francisco, Matt Nathanson has evolved into one of the premier songwriters and dynamic performers on the music scene today. His 2007 album Some Mad Hope (his first for Vanguard) yielded the smash single “Come On Get Higher,” which has sold more than 2 million copies to date, as well as the subsequent hits “Car Crash,” “Falling Apart” and “All We Are.” The success of Some Mad Hope earned Nathanson a coveted spot as a VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist, while also resulting in appearances on such national television shows as David Letterman, Ellen,Conan O’Brien, Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson, Dancing with the Stars, Rachael Ray and The CMA Awards to name a few. Additionally, his songs have been featured in numerous film and TV programs, including Good Morning America, NCIS, Private Practice, American Idol, X Factor,Vampire Diaries, American Pie and 90210. Modern Love, his previous studio album, debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and topped the iTunes Pop Chart. It featured the hit singles “Faster” and “Run” – the latter featuring Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush.

Nathanson’s legendary live shows, in which he displays a chic comedic flair, have resulted in sold-out tours across the U.S., Canada and Australia. Matt Nathanson’s ninth studio recording, Last of the Great Pretenders, will be released on July 16th. The new album is available for preorder via MattNathanson.com, iTunes, and Amazon.com. Produced by Mike Viola and Jake Sinclair, Last of the Great Pretenders marks a dramatic progression for the acclaimed artist, who has created a richer and deeper work both musically and lyrically than any of his previous LPs – and that’s saying something considering the already rarefied level of his writing and performing. Songs like “Earthquake Weather,” “Kill The LIghts,” “Kinks Shirt,” “Sunday New York Times” and first single “Mission Bells” are precisely cinematic as Nathanson stirs the material with deftly placed pop-cultural references and vivid details drawn from his keen observations of everyday life, while topping each song with an emphatic and seductive chorus hook.

Latest News

ZZ Top show postponed
ZZ TOP have just announced that scheduled tour dates will resume at the first of the year, stating, "Dusty's well being is paramount." The statement is in reference to Dusty Hill, the band's bass-guitarist, who, earlier, took a miss-step on his tour bus and injured his hip, whose energies are now aimed at rehab in expectation of a complete recovery. The band's management is now booking and re-scheduling an extensive run of dates starting early next year. "We're looking forward to getting out there and rockin' it with Dusty in a big way...100%," bandmates Billy F Gibbons and Frank Beard, commented. Dusty's usual upbeat wit was very much in evidence as he added that he'd like to see Slim Harpo's classic "Hip Shake" added to the band's repertoire. Although the plans for a 2015 show with ZZ Top at the Casino Ballroom are underway, the upcoming September 28th show has been cancelled. Refunds are being automatically processed now. Questions about refunds can be answered at the point of purchase. Information on a new date in 2015, as well as on sale announcements, will be made available in the coming weeks. The Casino Ballroom would like to wish Dusty a full and pain-free recovery and apologize to the fans for any inconvenience. We look forward to seeing you in 2015.
