Tyler Hilton + Emma Charles + Kicking Sunrise
A musician and actor, Tyler Hilton has accomplished a lot in his career so far. As a teenager, he released two Top 40 singles. He starred alongside Taylor Swift in her video for "Teardrops on my Guitar." He played the role of one of his musical idols, Elvis Presley, in the Oscar-winning Johnny Cash biopic 'Walk the Line,' and co-starred with Robert Downey Jr. in the acclaimed indie film 'Charlie Bartlett.' He may be most known for his musical role on the show 'One Tree Hill,' which earned him a devoted fan base around the world.
His new album 'City On Fire,' out January 18th 2019, comes from a much more personal place for the California native, who grew up in a family of musicians and songwriters and spent much of his childhood performing and jamming alongside of them. Steeped in country, blues, folk and rock traditions, the album captures the loose, organic musical style that runs in Hilton’s blood.
Emma Charles has been an involved and enthusiastic musician since the age of 2. She used to dance around the kitchen singing songs to The Sound of Music, and sooner or later she started to become more serious about her passion. At the age of 5 she was in her first musical, and ever since then she has been inspired to create, perform and interpret all different kinds of music, sounds, and styles. She has taken classical piano training for 10 years and jazz improvisation and contemporary piano lessons for 5 years. She considers herself to be fluent on the piano as she is with her voice. She has taken voice lessons since the age of 6 and considers herself to be classically trained, yet also able to sing pop, R&B, jazz, and rock. She currently has an EP out on SoundCloud, posts covers on YouTube and studies performance and songwriting at the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
Comprised of Joe Murphy (vocals, rhythm guitar), Ryan Hornibrook (bass, vocals), Mark Altamuro (drums), and Matt Bosco (lead guitar), Kicking Sunrise released their first single, “Here’s to the Sunrise”, in 2015. The song caught the attention of CBS3 Philadelphia, quickly leading to the group becoming their “house band”, and the station adopting the song as the theme song for their morning show, “CBS3 Mornings”. The band spent the next two years working on building themselves as artists, songwriters, and performers, playing shows that were a mix of both cover and original music, up and down the east coast.
