A Common Crown
Location (Select closest city): ,
Long Description:

Kittanning, Pennsylvania based rock outfit A Common Crown have been pretty busy as of late, dropping their new single “Awake” and album The Reckoning . Their rise in the Pittsburgh scene has been somewhat of a slow burner, having really branched out within the last year and establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with (no pun intended). Having already started with top notch musicians; they have found their sound, their groove and they are ready to take on the world, starting with Pittsburgh.

Frank Vieira
Location (Select closest city): ,
Long Description:

It’s hard to tell whether Frank Vieira found country music, or whether country found him, but there’s no denying it’s a perfect fit. You can hear the passion in his voice and see it in his face when he performs, from the heartfelt, “I’m Right Here”, to the everyman anthem, “Fill it Up.” Frank’s sophomore EP set to release in June reflects an impressive maturity as a songwriter and performer.
