About Eric Knight:
Eric Knight has taken the contemporary appropriate “do-it-yourself” attitude to a whole new level. Opening for acts including KISS, Dave Matthews Band, Aerosmith and Kid Rock, Knight has worked tirelessly to introduce his original music to the masses. He recently walked away with Outstanding Male Solo Artist bragging rights at the Rockies Awards in Hollywood. Dressed to kill in a sharp suit and tie, he offers a decidedly unbridled take on rock that remains tastefully aware of rock and roll’s pioneers but determined to redefine it even as he picks up the torch. Knight is currently working on his third album, Delusions of Grandeur, slated for release later this year. Find out more at: www.ericknightonline.com
About Ignacio Val:
Bolivian export Ignacio Val made his initial mark upon the public’s consciousness when he joined legendary Franco De Vita on tour throughout South America to duet on one of Franco's greatest hits, “Si La Ves.” Since then, Val has played throughout Southern California in key venues including The Whisky a Go Go, The Temple Bar, The Gig, The Rumba Room, B.B King’s, The Joint and The Good Hurt, among others. 2010 has already been an incredible year for the rising star, who has made multiple TV appearances on Univision’s Primera Edicion and Tu Estilo. Performing also with international superstars such as David Bisbal and Alejandra Guzman. Ignacio’s supercharged shows, songs and charisma combine to cultivate a Latin superstar-in-the-making.
Ignacio’s star has been shining as of late. He has recently become the world wide ambassador to World Vision a charity that helps place orphaned children and he has also become the face and image for Entel Communications in South America. His songs are currently charting in South America along side acts like David Guetta and Lady Gaga.

About Jonny Kaplan:
Jonny Kaplan. Equal parts shaman and renegade. Born in Philadelphia. Based in Los Angeles. Marina Del Rey , on his sailboat, Wanderer-to be exact. This is how it works with Jonny and his stellar band The Lazy Stars…old school baby, Bob Dylan, Neil Young And Crazy Horse, The Band, Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers. You get where he’s coming from, right? He’s been doing this his whole life. He’s been luckier than a bunch-maybe not nearly as lucky as a few others. He’s gotten to work with a lot of artists he dearly loves and respects. Keith Richards, Nora Jones, Dee Dee Ramone, Dwight Yoakum, Kings Of Leon, Wilco & Ben Harper…just to name a few. He feels blessed. He’s been all over the world the past few years supporting his first three records: “California Heart”, “Ride Free” and “Seasons”. Now he’s just finished recording his newest rockin’ affair “Sparkle & Shine”…at Johnny Depp’s studio. This record makes him proud. Very, very proud. It’s coming out in the next few months. Summer of 2012 found Jonny on the road opening for his amigos, The Wallflowers. Soon Jonny and his Lazy Stars will be out there playing even more shows for all of you. Where? Anywhere and everywhere that will have him. Trust us. You’ll get where he’s coming from... Find out more at: www.jonnykaplanmusic.com

Satellite Sky is the musical vision of Australian siblings, Pete Kicks (vocals/guitar) & Kim Kicks (drums).

Their music can be heard in a variety of commercials, films and trailers, including music documentary ‘Rockin The Wall’ (PBS), Los Angeles Film Festival winner 'Almost Kings' (featuring 'I Like It' and 'With You') and the NFL’s 2011 and 2012 Season campaigns.The single 'Got This Feeling', was featured throughout NBC’s Summer Olympics commercial campaign.
