Michael Daughtry and The Drift – Raleigh, NC
Michael Daughtry is a singer/songwriter from North Carolina. He graduated from Berklee College of Music (magna cum laude) where he received a performer/songwriter award for his infectious song crafting.

Hustle Souls – Asheville, NC
Hustle Souls is an Asheville, NC based soul band who blend dust-covered-vinyl nostalgia with modern sensibility; recently named one of “Music Connections” Hot 100 Live Unsigned Artists & Bands. Driven by a lust for songwriting, the band’s fervid live performance is heightened by undeniable instrumental prowess and 3 part vocal harmony. With relentless touring, sold out shows and major festival appearances the band has earned a reputation as one of the East Coast’s most promising acts.
Westerner – Los Angeles, CA
Westerner is an electronic, psychedelic rock band from LA. They’re a ballsy, cocktail mix of psychedelic rock, disco, and synth pop. Think Pink Floyd meets Massive Attack meets late-90s electronica. Their songs are at once danceable and mesmerizing. You’re bound to get swept up in this most unusual, confident sound. Their masterful songwriting and explosive live shows have garnered rave reviews from publications like BuzzBandsLA and American Pancake and helped them secure working relationships with world-famous mastering engineer Vlado Meller (Kanye West, Paul McCartney), mixing engineer James “Fluff” Harley (Prince), and recording engineer John Avila (Oingo Boingo).
Westerner connects with their audience with a physical presence that is contagious while delivering catchy, danceable songs. Electronic noises are combined with psychedelic soundscapes to create an exciting show that’s unlike anything you’ve seen or heard before. Music Connection Magazine has included them in their Hot 100 Live Acts list three years in a row (2016, 2017, 2018).
Westerner started with their debut album, “Unreal City,” a sci-fi rock opera composed of catchy pop songs, surreal sounds, and strange characters. Starting in 2020, the band began releasing a new song every month. This tradition is continuing into 2021, along with new, animated music videos for every song on Unreal City.
