February 18, 2011
The Pete Kilpatrick Band hails from Maine. They have often been referred to as a “Folk Singer/Songwriter with a Rock and Roll Band.” The group is comprised of five close friends who have a deep appreciation and admiration for music. Their acoustic alternative rock sound is comparable to The Fray and Travis, and they have shared the stage with O.A.R. and Spoon. As NewBandDaily.com come puts it, the band “has that suburban sensibility, that clarity and sweetness sometimes so necessary after a hard day’s work.”
Howard Jennings, former business major turned singer-songwriter, “has an undeniable knack for catchy melodies” (Seven Days) and has become known as an engaging and magnetic live performer. He’s toured nationally with Vertical Horizon and Rusted Root. This New York based artist has been described as a “cross between Jack Johnson and Bob Dylan” (Kings of A&R). Howard’s songs have been featured on MTV, he has performed live on NBC and ABC affiliates and was a featured performer at The US Open.
Daphne made her nation wide debut on the first season of Singapore Idol. In late 2007 her first solo album “Desperate” was release, and it scored Daphne “Best Breakout Solo Artist” at Power 98’s Singapore Music Awards in 2008. Since performing at over 80 venues and riding radio waves across Singapore and Australia, she’s stepping into new grounds, eager to share stories of the other side of the world through her music.
