Clark Beckham
Clark's killer vocals and profound music abilities as a multi-instrumentalist has ledhim on a journey from busking on the streets to performing on national television in front of millions of viewers. On American Idol, Clark's soulful, bluesy voice out sold every other contestant combined on iTunes and placed him as THE fan favorite and runner-up of the 2015 season. Clark's live performances also dominated the top 10 most viewed videos on American Idol's Youtube channel. Since Idol, Clark has performed with the Nashville Symphony, written with Brian McKnight, been nominated for the Teen Choice award for Music’s Next Big Thing, opened on tour for Jon Bellion, and signed with Quincy Jones.

In 2018, Clark released his EP “Year One”, which debuted at #6 on iTunes Alternative and #22 on Billboard’s R&B Sales chart. “Year One” includes “Must Be Hard Being You”, which was a collaboration with The Shadowboxers, and “INeed”, which was produced by Steve Jordan and features John Mayer's all-star band: Steve Jordan on drums, Pino Palladino on bass, and Isaiah Sharkey on guitar, with horn arrangements by Jerry Hey and Keyon Harrold.

Most recently, Clark premiered “I Hurt Too Much” – the first single off his upcoming album that will be released in January 2020. We will continue to see refreshing new music from Clark that will be highly regarded and binge-worthy, making his music one for the passionate connoisseurs of music.Catch Clark’s captivating performances and upcoming 2020 tour at www.clarkbeckham.com. 
Ace Stiles
Today his hair is brown. Yesterday it was red on the left side and blond on the right. Two weeks ago, blue… His jacket is navy blue with pink bands painted around the cuffs and jewels bedazzling his lapel, and he wears tan and white golf shoes.

His music is a lot like his style. Full of flavor and constantly evolving. This fifteen year old boy wonder can play a two hour show without repeating a song, and still have some tunes in his back pocket for an encore. His is prolific to say the least, but also, he is good. I mean really good. His lyrics are both complex and accessible. His melodies will stick in your head for days. His songwriting shows a maturity well beyond his years, and yet he performs with an honesty and naivety that at once endears him to his audience.

Ace hit the Tulsa music scene this last June at the Gypsy Coffee House open mic and has seen a steadily growing and loyal fan base, packing the house to standing room only at his last two performances.
