Read on for more information about the winners:
These “International Pop Rock” pioneers got their start after years of singing, performing and running aspects of live shows for other artists. Brothers Joel and Luke have spent the last several years perfecting their craft. With a sound that echoes U2 and melodies and lyrics that remind one of OneRepublic, these Aussies have created pop perfection through songs like “Light It Up” and “Hey Hey Hello.” As the brohers said it themselves, “our hope is this music will inspire you and each song will relate to you, right where you are.”
Steve Dalton is a family man at heart and proudly touts that his best material has been written since he got married and started having children. If the response he has gotten for his latest effort, the “Worth Fighting For” EP, is any indication, the fans agree! His vocals and songs combine the sound of Lifehouse with an emphasis on piano that is reminiscent of Coldplay. For those in the Boston area, Dalton will be playing sets on select dates through April. For those not in the Boston area, be sure to check out his blog and his Facebook page.
Violin virtuoso Jane Hunt has already made several high-profile appearances including performance at The U.S. Open, New York Fashion Week, Carnegie Hall and The Kennedy Center. With two albums under her belt, Hunt has developed a sound and style that is uniquely her own. Some songs feature her world music tastes while others feature a combination of classical and folk. She has even been included on the official soundtracks for the U.S. Open 2010 and New York Fashion Week.
