Unafraid to write about the parts of his story that scare him most, Brendan Abernathy is known for his contemplative lyrics, memorable melodies, and a captivating live performance you will feel in your soul. Creating a fresh but familiar sound combining notes of Maggie Rogers with James Taylor, Lewis Capaldi, and Marcus Mumford, Brendanʼs intimate words and powerful vocals speak straight to the listenerʼs soul. Since August 2019, Brendan has lived out of his car, touring the US selling out concerts across the country in Atlanta, Phoenix, Seattle, Portland, DC, Gainesville, and Boulder. In 2022, Brendan opened for Johnnyswim on their Southeastern tour, and played several festivals. He has generated over 1.5 million streams and played over 300 live shows, focusing on the individual and building a loyal following. “We all just want to be seen and loved, and I try to do that — see and love.” His first two projects deal with indecision, comparison, loneliness, and dreams, where Brendan brings hope to his darkest moments. His first LP – Single and in Love – was released in late 2022 to an enthusiastic response from fans across the country.
Dylan Owen is a New York rap artist with his own brand of confessional, heartfelt storytelling. His songs have earned him an undeniable following of fans, countless of which have tattoos of his meaningful lyrics, and who have streamed his music more than 17MM times. Dylan has opened stages for Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, Logic, Watsky, Skizzy Mars, Yelawolf, and Grieves. He has recorded collaborations with Abhi the Nomad, Kinetics & One Love, and Watsky, and landed sync placements on WWE Smackdown and Miley Cyrus’s The Movement documentary. His inspirational, literary delivery is accompanied by violin, trumpet, and turntable scratches — blending alternative rap, pop, and folk — and it is his ongoing quest to carve out meaning from his journey for himself and others to empower his listeners, who prove to him time and time again that there is more to life.
