-Pairing their infectious brand of pop rock with catchy driven choruses, The Summer Set are on a mission to win the hearts of audiences worldwide. Led by singer Brian Dales, the band's fourth full-length Stories For Monday delivers 11 of their most well-crafted songs, throwing punch after punch of sun-drenched nostalgia, reckless love, and Dales' most honest lyrics to date. The Phoenix, AZ quintet quickly became a phenomenon through the independent music scene since their formation and have continued to hone their irresistible brand of feel-good pop through major television syncs and new album Legendary (2013). The band have come off an incredible string of success that includes a full summer on the Main Stage of the Vans Warped Tour 2014, winning the 2013 iHeartRadio Rising Star Competition, appearing in Macy's "Back To School" TV, online and radio ad campaign, performing at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, broadcasted on the CW, as well as TeenNick's Top 10 with Nick Canon. The band also performed the single "Lightning In A Bottle" as part of the 2013 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Led by poignant single "Figure Me Out" and the infectious "Missin' You", new album Stories For Monday is positioned to be The Summer Set's most powerful release to date.

“Music is all about connection,“ expresses solo artist William Beckett. “Performer gives to listener, listener gives back to performer. I respect my fans and their inevitable evolution of taste and experience. The only constants in life are change and the necessity of music. THAT is why I don’t make the same record over and over again. I’m not trying to cater to an audience or lower the bar to some level of “relatability”. I write real songs for real people about real experiences. The connect ion is the skin, the meat and the core. The whole apple.” As a solo artist, and with The Academy Is…, Beckett has toured with the likes of KISS, Fall Out Boy, Motion City Soundtrack, Cobra Starship, Plain White T’s, Mayday Parade and more. Though his early solo tours have focused on an intimate, stripped down performance– fans can expect future tours to expand greatly over time into a full band, in your face experience with Beckett handing off the guitar and taking over the stage with his signature charismatic and mesmerizing stage presence as a frontman.

-Inquisitive, pensive, insightful, committed, individual, loyal; these are characteristics of
an old soul, and they all are an appropriate fit for Taylor Grey. The 19-year- old Taylor
has old soul pouring out of her; out of her lyrics, her music, her songs, her very being.
Taylor tapped into her innate wisdom—without realizing it—as early as second grade
expressing herself through musical theatre in the Bay Area where she grew up, and
continues to live. Her music endeavors started with lyric writing in late elementary
school. It wasn’t until the start of high school, however, and her experimenting—self-
taught—on guitar and piano, creating music to accompany her words, that she starting
coming into her own. This affinity toward music is an instinctive one for Taylor who has
always absorbed the sounds around her—from the radio, from friends’ playlists, from her parents’ limited
record collections—turning them into part of her musical make-up. To this end, her
tastes range from The Eagles, who are the all-time favorite, to Frankie Valli, The Beach
Boys, Dion & The Belmonts, Sublime, and NWA. There is no restriction to what catches
her ear: ‘40s jazz and pop, ‘50s R&B and rock ‘n’ roll, ‘60s folk and psychedelia, late ‘70s
and early ‘80s classic rock, ‘90s hip hop, and modern day singer/songwriters.
“There are songs that we jam and work on and write in the studio, but I’m a stickler
about being the lyricist and doing the melody,”.
