Featured Bands:

Train:

Over the course of 15 years, Train has made its mark on music history with their Grammy-Award-winning song “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)” and chart-topping singles “Meet Virginia” and “Calling All Angels.” Since forming in San Francisco in 1994, the multi-platinum selling band has traveled a long, successful and sometimes arduous journey. Following their 2006 release, For Me, It’s You, the band took a three-year hiatus, and in that time, Train has, for all intents and purposes, experienced an epiphany as a whole. Now, with their fifth album, Save Me San Francisco, Train has channeled their early days, revisiting the roots rock sound that has made the band such a tour de force – and, in turn, the band is united stronger than ever before.

Colbie Caillat:

Ever since her mom gave birth to her in their Malibu home overlooking the ocean, Colbie Caillat has been the quintessential California girl. On “Coco,” her Universal Republic debut, the songs mirror Caillat’s low-key, refreshing style. Armed with her acoustic guitar and her dusky vocals, she evokes the same gentle, yet spirited style of her musical influences John Mayer, Bob Marley, Lauryn Hill and The Weepies. Her debut single, “Bubbly,” reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100. Her new album, “Breakthrough,” reflects her California beach-girl vibe and is full of upbeat pop and mellow acoustic tracks.

Howie Day:

Howie became known for his powerful one-man shows and his penchant for live loop sampling, the strength of his songwriting, and a warm tenor voice that “soars into fluttering, high registers, but also grates with real, pleading grit,” as one critic put it. In 2003, Day released his major-label debut, Stop All The World Now, and hit the road to support it. The constant touring paid off big-time: the album was certified gold in the U.S. and spawned two Top 10 radio hits: “She Says” and the # 1 single, “Collide.” His new album, “Sound the Alarm,” comes after more than a decade of touring, and “very obviously echoes my own life, in all of its highs and lows,” Day says.
