ILLENIUM North American Tour

Reaffirming his status as an unprecedented live performer, Denver-based artist Nick Miller—known professionally as ILLENIUM—will grace the stages at two of North America’s most hallowed venues in 2019. He hosts his biggest continental headline show to date at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY on September 21 and launches a two-night stand at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater October 11and 12. A special pre-sale begins tomorrow, March 13, while general on-sale commences March 15. Tickets will be available here: http://illenium.com/tour/. 

In other big news, the critically acclaimed force will unveil an official remix package for his latest single, “Crashing” Featuring Bahari, this Friday March 15. The original version has garnered over 4.3 million Spotify streams and emerged as an emotionally charged fan favorite.

For the remix package, he recruited the talents of a diverse array of producers, including DROELOE, KLOUD, and Rock Mafia. Additionally, the tracklisting showcases a shuddering and stunning stripped take on the song, highlighting the angelic and airy vocal over gorgeous piano. The remixes add a whole new dimension to the tune, which EDM.com dubbed, “yet another instant classic.”

ILLENIUM has ignited some of the biggest stages across the country. His 2018 Awake 2.0 Tour sold out every single date, including three nights at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Auditorium and NYC’s Terminal 5 respectively, and two nights at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. ILLENIUM looks to 2019 with performances at ULTRA Music Festival in Miami, FL on March 30, and Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN on June 16, while his Hakkasan Las Vegas residency continues through August. 

With more music on the way, ILLENIUM stands on the precipice of an historic 2019. Get ready!

ILLENIUM creates immersive emotional experiences, displaying an adeptness for crafting aural arrangements that vary in style, beauty, complexity and depth. With two full-length albums to his credit and sundry singles and remixes, he has surpassed the one billion stream mark across his discography.

His debut album, Ashes, was released to critical acclaim in early 2016. Awake followed in 2017 and hit #1 on in the iTunes Electronic Dance Charts in 12 countries. Named one of the “10 Best Dance/Electronic Albums of 2017” by Billboard, it included such singles as “Feel Good” (with Gryffin featuring Daya) and “Crawl Outta Love.” Praising the album as “a gorgeous collection of future bass, piercing vocals, and barefaced lyrics,” Dancing Astronaut said, “While it might seem premature to call an album a ‘masterpiece,’ no other title would fit Awake so well.” Billboard observed, “The phoenix is ILLENIUM ‘s mascot, and Awake is the emergent moment of that story.”

ILLENIUM’s Awake Live headline tour captivated audiences across the country, and sold out such renowned venues as The Shrine, Terminal 5, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, Aragon Ballroom and Red Rocks. His remix of Flume’s “Say It” earned him an Electronic Music Award for “Best Remix” in 2017. ILLENIUM’s recent collaborations include “Don’t Give Up On Me” with Kill The Noise ft. Mako and “Gold (Stupid Love)” with Excision ft. Shallows.

Kevin Garrett Announces North American Tour

Pittsburgh-born and GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Kevin Garrett announces an 18 city headlining North American tour.

BUY/ STREAM “RUNNING FROM”

Kevin said about the song, “My friend Sean made the initial track with which I wrote this song. Running From at face value is about being taken advantage of, but it’s more an inward reflection on why we back off from time to time and how we hold back with walls we don’t even know we’re building.

Kevin introduced HOAX with the stark and simmering 2018 release of his single In Case I Don’t Feel. Backed by delicately plucked acoustic guitar and plaintive piano, he relays an unfiltered message. He has also recently unveiled tracks “Faith You Might” and “Don’t Rush.”

Austin Adventures: Family Appreciation Month

Through hard work and dedication to the details, Austin Adventures has grown to be the #1 Family Adventure company in the country. For over 35 years they have been taking families to the national parks of the West as well as special places around the globe. As a two-generation, owned and operated active travel company, family travel is in their DNA.

For the second year in a row, Austin Adventures is dedicating the entire month of March to “Family Appreciation,” with special incentives and giveaways, plus an interactive child & parent “Take a National Park Vacation” webinar that all ages will want to attend.

“Between work, school, athletic and social schedules, planning and scheduling a family vacation has never been more challenging, often to the point of missing the opportunity all together to create lasting bonds and memories within the family,” explains Dan Austin, company president and founder. “Austin Adventures is fully committed to helping anyway we can. Our goal is to take the stress out of vacation planning and then deliver an experience second-to-none.”

On Tuesday, Mar 12, 2019 at 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM EDT Austin Adventures invites kids and parents to a live webinar focused on helping families (especially the kids) with their vacation planning. Anyone considering a small group vacation tour now or in the future is encouraged to attend. For information and to register click here.

The seminar will be hosted by Kasey Austin, Outside Magazine 2014 Family Guide of the Year. Making a cameo appearance will be Dan Austin, company visionary and travel industry legend. Together, The Austin Family has set the bar for family adventure travel for decades, so much so, they are often referred to as “the First Family of Adventure Travel.”

During this informal and informative webinar focused on the younger generation, Kasey will offer tips and insights on planning and visiting America’s National Parks along with other popular family destinations.

As an incentive to register and attend, every family that participates will receive a coupon worth $250 off their next Austin Adventures family vacation. Plus, all participating kids (age 6-12) whose parents end up booking a 2019 family national park adventure will receive a logo-embossed backpack (on Day 1 of the trip) packed full of swag (logo water bottle, trip journal, field guide, hacky sack, stickers and more).

“I had so much fun sharing my passion for our National Parks last year, I couldn’t wait to do it all again this year. Sharing the parks with the next generation of adventurer really is my passion. I am looking forward to sharing what we know and have learned from our 35+ years of taking families deep into our national parks,” said Kasey Austin.

“Dan and I will draw from our own experiences and help families with real time information that can assist them in making the most of a park vacation, whether with us or on their own. There will be a follow-up email survey as well as ample time for questions and answers.”

The webinar will help Austin Adventures kick-off their second annual “Family Appreciation” Month. Dedicated to celebrating and encouraging family vacations worldwide, this observance comes on the heels of the company’s 2nd wildly successful “Alumni Appreciation” month held in December, 2018. Throughout the month there will be dedicated e-newsletters and blogs on family travel, special incentives, travel agent promotions and for extended families, an offer of a free trip for one guest in groups of ten or more booked.

Mat Kerekes Releases “Ruby” Music Video

Toledo, OH singer-songwriter Mat Kerekes has released a music video for “Ruby”, the lead single off his forthcoming solo album, expected later this year. The music video, which sees Kerekes perform the song alongside his newly assembled live band, is out now HERE.

Ruby” was released last December alongside the announcement that Kerekes had signed to producer Will Yip’s Elektra Music Group sub-label Black Cement Records. His forthcoming album will follow Tiger Jaw’s heralded 2017 album Spin as the label’s second release. Earlier this month, Kerekes treated fans to an early listen of the album’s second single “Diamonds” and shared a surreal accompanying music video. Watch it HERE.

Best known as lead vocalist of celebrated alt rock band Citizen, Kerekes presents his softer side and showcases his versatility as a singer-songwriter on his new solo material.

Noah Kahan “Mess”

Today, Noah Kahan debuts his new single, “Mess,” from his highly anticipated debut album set for release this spring. Listen to “Mess” HERE!

Produced by Kahan’s frequent collaborator Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid), Noah wrote “Mess” last fall while he was home in Vermont in between sold out tours. Of the song, Noah explains, “My life has taken a 180° turn. I’m on a very different path than what I thought I would do. I get nostalgic for the locale where I grew up because the scenery is so beautiful. Going from this to bigger cities and tours is crazy for me. The truth is—regardless of where I’ve gone—my parents still yell at me to pick up the dogs’ shit when I’m back home.”

 He continues, “‘Mess’ is a song I wrote during a very overwhelming and generally sad time in my life. Being able to work on this song and bring these feelings to light was a lifeline for me, and I hope it provides you with similar comfort.”

 “Mess” follows the global success of Kahan’s breakout singles, “Hurt Somebody” and “False Confidence.” With over 200 million global streams to date, “Hurt Somebody” is triple platinum in Australia and gold in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland and New Zealand; and it peaked at #1 on the Top 40 radio charts in Australia for three weeks, making it the third most played song on the Australian airwaves in all of 2018 where Noah has become one of the most buzzworthy new acts. “False Confidence” continues to grow with over 15 million streams to date and is currently sitting in the top 5 at Triple A radio in the U.S.

 Noah Kahan will be hitting the road with James Bay this month on his North American tour, performing at New York’s iconic Beacon Theatre for two nights on March 12 and 13 and at Los Angeles’ The Wiltern on March 25. He will also be joining Dean Lewis on his headline tour in Europe and the U.K. in April. See the full list of upcoming dates below. Tickets are available now at www.NoahKahan.com/tour.

 In two short years, music quite literally carried 22-year-old singer, songwriter and artist Noah Kahan around the world—a long way from his native Strafford, VT (pop. 1,045) and the 133-acre tree farm where he resides. On the trip, the alternative troubadour notched an international hit in the form of “Hurt Somebody” [feat. Julia Michaels], while his singles “Young Blood” and “False Confidence” also racked up millions of streams and he sold out headline tours in North America, Europe, and the UK and hit the road with artists like George Ezra and Leon Bridges. Not to mention, he has garnered critical acclaim from Billboard, Stereogum, Clash, Idolator, and more. In the midst of this whirlwind, he assembled his upcoming full-length debut album. The first single “Mess” illuminates his marked growth as a songwriter and storyteller by way of its biting lyrics and undeniable sing-a-long, underscoring a heartwarming and often hilarious portrait of hometown longing.

Over the past year, Melii has drawn acclaim for singles like “Icey (Spanish Remix)” (named “one of the year’s starkest rap hits” by Jon Caramanica of the New York Times), “La Envidia Mata” (dubbed a “sledgehammer of a single” by Rolling Stone), “Como Si Na” (featured on a “5 Songs You Need to Listen to This Week” from TIME), and “See Me” (praised as a “baddie anthem” by HotNewHipHop). She’s also earned admiration from Billboard, who stated that “Every few years, a new artist emerges from Harlem, ready to take on the rap world…In 2018, that spotlight belongs to Melii.”
