Walden
Four friends from Athens, Georgia have started a revolution in rock music. Driven by passion and purpose, Walden seeks to evoke emotion and inspiration through their music. To do so, these young men have stripped away every stigma and stereotype associated with playing in a rock band to focus on what actually matters: the music, the message, and the people. Four guys with nothing but a passion for playing shows and creating music quickly became one of the biggest upcoming musical acts in Georgia, capturing the attention of audiences of all ages with their raw sound, infectious energy, and undeniable connection they share on stage. Walden’s live performance truly shone when they won the 2017 Road to Bonnaroo competition for the state of Georgia. This competition generated a passionate and supportive following for the band in their hometown of Athens, GA. These successes amount to nothing more than a stepping stone towards achieving their actual goal of playing and creating music together for the rest of their lives.
The Norm
When step-brothers Bryan Rucker and Ryan Bars became family, they realized they had at least one thing in common – music. Born and raised in South Florida, the duo combine their urban roots of hip-hop, rock, and pop to formulate a sound they like to refer to as “hip-rock.” Drawing comparisons to Twenty One Pilots, Macklemore, and Fall Out Boy, the brothers of The Norm most certainly defy the musical “norm”.

The dual frontman band currently resides in Athens, GA where they won the 2017 Flagpole Music Awards Artist of the Year. The Norm has shared the stage with artists such as 311, Shakey Graves, The Revivalists, Moon Taxi, White Denim, Mayday, Arrested Development, and many more. Their debut EP Normaltown (2016) was produced by Will Pugh of Cartel in Nashville, TN, and their singles “Same Old Thing” and “We Like To Party” were featured on TLC’s “Seven Little Johnstons” and “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. The band most recently won The Road To Roo competition representing the state of Georgia and will be performing at The Bonnaroo Music Festival this Summer. The Norm is currently working on their next album and fans can expect this to be ready by Summer 2018
