More Info

Cody Simpson: Cody Simpson is the latest fresh faced teen to hit the pop scene in the wake of Justin Bieber. Like Bieber, this 14 year-old Australian sensation started out posting videos of himself singing and playing cover songs from popular artists, alongside some of his own original creations. Like Bieber, Cody Simpson was discovered on YouTube and flown out to Los Angeles to discover his musical potential. Like Bieber, Simpson's boyish good looks and feathered hair are already turning him into a teen heartthrob. Unlike Bieber, all this is happening for Simpson without having released a single full-length album or concert schedule, and he's already slated to perform a tour date in 2011 with Bieber's girlfriend Selena Gomez at the Wang Tango concert in Los Angeles. Cody Simpson's career may be on the rise in the shadow of Justin Bieber, but he's all set to give Bieber a run for his money. In addition to a tour date at the 2011 Wango Tango concert on May 14, Cody Simpson has just added more 2011 tour dates in the US to his concert schedule.

Cody Simpson's story began like many exciting stories do: On summer break. In the summer of 2009, still fantasizing about record contracts and sold-out tour dates, Simpson began recording performances of hit songs, including "I'm Your's" by Jason Mraz and "Cry Me a River" by Justin Timberlake. He also posted videos of original songs "One" and "Perfect" before being discovered by record producer Shawn Campbell. Simpson's first single, "iYiYi" was released on May 15, 2010, and features Flo Rida. After being signed to Atlantic Records, Cody Simpson moved to Los Angeles in June of 2010 to begin recording. Just a month after recording began, Simpson toured on his first concert schedule on the Camplified 2010 Tour, which played shows at various summer camps. After heading back to Los Angeles to record, Simpson's first EP, 4 U, released on December 21, 2010, shortly after the completion of a national middle school tour. Cody hassle also recorded a cover of The Strangeloves' "I Want Candy" for the 2011 film Hop.

With the recent success of his EP, Cody Simpson is showing up on YouTube more and more; only this time, it's his fans that are making the videos about how much they love him. The adoration has built since Cody Simpson finished his recent 2011 tour dates with Greyson Chance. Simpson is currently playing tour dates on a mall tour of Australia, with additional US tour dates added to his concert schedule. Beginning on June 4, Cody Simpson will play a few tour dates at minor league baseball stadiums along the east coast. There are only four tour dates, ending at Toyota Park in Chicago on June 11. Fans hoping to attend these Simpson tour dates in 2011 -- and catch a ball game -- will have to act fast, as they are rapidly approaching. With the tremendous accomplishments Cody Simpson has achieved in such a short time, fans can look forward to even more great things from this Queensland sensation.

The Tide: To any art there is a craft that must be molded, and perfected. In the case of The Tide, it’s more or less a desire to craft responses out of over saturated listeners. So how do you bring new life and character to an already mundane and apathetic music culture? Enveloping powerful and embracive sounds, with bare to the bone, “truth be told” lyrics, The Tide has set its sights on nothing less. For the past three years this five-piece West Michigan based outfit has been developing beautiful, “off the cuff” songs hitting home and turning heads from the start. The band’s prowess between each member makes itself incredibly obvious as you listen in on the stories told through their 2005 debut EP, “In Need of Rest”. That continuity and evolution continues even more so on their latest 2006 release of “Oh My God, I’m Not Free.” Sharing stages across the country with the likes Love Drug, Sleeping At Last, Copeland, and The Appleseed Cast there is something brewing just beneath the surface. When you have an understanding of a mutual need for one another, the audience is receptive in a way we don’t normally see. Call it being vulnerable if you wish, but The Tide has an unwavering commitment to bearing its soul as part of its craft. There’s something completely comforting and peaceful spilling over from The Tide, that delivers a message of grace and hope and convicts many listener’s hearts. As the 07 Spring/Summer tour season moves into full swing expect to see much more of this great band from the North….
