Tickets are still available for this impressive lineup here, but we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan! Read on for more info on these three talented artists, and enter for your chance to win!
Born in Dallas, Texas, Nashville-based pop artist Daniella Mason has evolved a childhood love of music into an already impressive career. In her teens, she began writing and recording her own tracks and evolved her sound from traditional acoustic singer-songwriter fare to energetic and fun pop tunes. After releasing tracks via her own independent label, she attracted the attention of Demi Lovato, who praised her music on Twitter. Soon after, Mason locked a slot opening for Lovato, bringing her music to a massive new fanbase.
She earned even more exposure after she co-wrote “When We Get Home,” a track on Nick Jonas’ latest record. After years of honing her own sound, she inked a record deal with Warner Bros. Last year, she released her LP Technicolour, which is filled with cleverly crafted and impressive pop songs. She’ll bring all of those killer tracks and her stadium-ready stage show to The High Watt later this month. If you love hypnotic but substantial pop songs, get ready for fall in love with Mason’s enchanting sound.
We’ve been fans of Ellery Bonham, a.k.a. EZA, since the release of “High & Low” back in 2014. Since then, she’s released a stream of stellar pop tunes, including last year’s summer jam “Off The Record” and a soaring cover of Cam’s country crossover hit “Burning House” with Aaron Krause. Her latest EP, Dead Reckoning, showcases some huge talent for a 21-year-old artist. It’s safe to say she has a long career ahead of her, so take this opportunity to cement your bragging rights of seeing her in the early days. You won’t regret it.
It’s a great time to catch a live show from blossoming local pop artist Jessie Early. She just released a new EP, Wild Honey, at the end of March. The release is full of gems, including her infectious ’80s-inspired track “Holy Ghost” that we exclusively premiered back in February. Give her new release a few spins and get there early to see her for yourself.
