Emerson Hart with Alyssa Bonagura & Sarah Darling
Fri, Nov 17 8:00 pm
Emerson Hart: Emerson Hart, frontman for the multi-platinum band Tonic, comes back to time and again on his new record, his first solo release in over six years. Beauty in Disrepair, due out in early 2014, touches on loss, but also the beauty of rebirth, newfound love, family and starting a clean slate. Beauty in Disrepair marks a remarkably polished and honest follow-up to his 2007 solo debut Cigarettes & Gasoline, a critically-acclaimed album that spawned two Top 20 singles. Alyssa Bonagura: ONE-LISTEN and it becomes crystal clear that Alyssa Bonagura was born to make music. With a voice that touches somewhere deep inside, her melodies and lyrics are as haunting as they are beautiful. From the youthful, bouncing ukulele sing along you may have heard on the nationwide 2012 Lowe's commercial, “I Make My Own Sunshine” to her rockin’, power-pop influenced “Warrior,” and everything in between, Alyssa has polished her own unique musical style. In a world where most artists tend to sound the same, Alyssa sounds fresh; new yet familiar; provocative yet reassuring. Born into a musical family, her mom and dad were RCA country music stars “Baillie And The Boys,” her cradle was the gentle rocking of a tour bus. Her playground encompassed sound checks and backstage catering. Her “extended” family consisted of managers, promoters, drummers, pedal steel players, keyboards, guitars and the like. Sarah Darling: Sarah Ann Darling is an American country music singer and songwriter based out of Nashville, TN. She first made her name known to the public in 2003, when she was a top-three finalist on E! Entertainment Television's reality show, The Entertainer, hosted by Wayne Newton. Darling then went into the studio in the summer of 2008 to record her debut album, Every Monday Morning, which was released on June 16, 2009. A second album, Angels & Devils, featuring the hit single, "Something to Do With Your Hands", followed on February 15, 2011. In August 2012, her single titled "Home to Me," was released to digital retailers after being previously featured on Sirius XM's The Highway. It sold over 8,000 copies in the first week of release, becoming the top-selling digital single from a new female artist since May 2011.
