Will Overman – The music of Will Overman is at once melodic as it is relentless, as refreshingly unique as it is familiar and evocative. Overman’s music is rooted deeply in the South yet transcends genres and convention, blending essential elements of rock, blues, country, and pop. His songs lean toward a collective swell reminiscent of Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell, and Josh Ritter.
A Virginia native, Overman — who made it through two levels of NBC’s “The Voice”– pairs sleek vocals with haunting rhythm and introspective melody. He takes on love, life and loss. All with an edge driven deep in reality. Whether performing solo or with a full band, Overman is a young Bruce Springsteen, (think “Nebraska”). He’s a folksinger and a rocker (think “Born to Run”), fronting a talented group of musicians swinging from flawless riffs to intoxicating beats.
Matthew McAllister is an independent folk singer/songwriter. He was born and raised in Charlottesville VA and is deeply rooted in its music scene. He began writing music at 13 and has most recently formed a band in order to create a new sound. Whether touring, busking on his hometown street corner, or beneath stage lights, he plays his music with sincerity and passion and hopes that listeners are moved by it.
