Selling out venues in Minnesota at the age of 17, Grayson DeWolfe’s hard worth ethic and anthemic songwriting found a home in the Twin Cities music scene at a young age. Grayson has opened for national and international acts such as PVRIS, Why Don’t We, The Plain White T’s, Tonight Alive, Paradise Fears, QuietDrive, and more. The multi-instrumentalist toured the country twice and gained a notable following with his previous band Time Atlas, and since then has written and recorded with Rian Dawson of All Time Low and Mark Holman (well known for his work with Florida Georgia Line) in preparation for his solo debut in November 2017. Grayson’s new EP, Live. Learn. Repeat. is due January 2nd.
With roots in both Minnesota and Wisconsin, The Millenium is a band that fuses their influences from their roots with the sounds of music they love today. The busy sounds of the city to the calm, tranquil, sounds of the quit Midwest forests is noticeably present in their music along with infectious hooks of today’s music to keep things upbeat. Themes of love, loss, and learning carry you on a journey through every song. The band has toured heavily since 2014 in support of their EP, It’s So Much Friendlier With Two, and debut full length album, But Do We Ever Ask Ourselves?, which was released in early 2017.
Stone Arch Isles
A vibrant young band composed of six University of Minnesota students and graduates, Stone Arch Isles has found success and a dedicated following in the Midwest indie-rock scene. Since initial beginnings in September of 2016, the band has played an incredible volume of shows and made waves online with their well-received series of “Local Sessions” – live, unplugged demos of their songs. A harmonious combination of sweet-sounding guitars, layered and soaring vocals, warm bass lines, and driven percussion, Stone Arch Isles carries forward the indie-rock torch with inspiration from the likes of Young the Giant, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and Local Natives. Coming off of a headlining show at Skyway Theatre’s Studio B and at Sofar Sounds in Chicago, they now look forward to their debut EP set to release early next year.
