This past week, I had the opportunity to meet and interview a bunch of tomorrow’s big music acts as part of Sunset Sessions. Arriving in Las Vegas for the first time, Sunset Sessions events are essentially a “convention” that brings together music supervisors and radio programmers from all over the country and expose them to up-and-coming talent as well as music legends.
Working with The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ entertainment team, the stage was set and over the course of three days we conducted over a dozen interviews. I can honestly say this was an amazing group of individuals on both a personal level and of course a musical level. I’ll get the videos of the interviews up as soon as they are ready but who I interviewed and who you’ll want to check out:
JJAMZ | Courrier | Beware of Darkness | Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown| Joel Piper | Angels Landing | Doris| Michael Bernard Fitzgerald | Faulkner| Olivia Olson | Clay Priskorn | SLATER | Cheating Daylight | Feral Vinca
