NAMM Show 2015 News: Taylor Guitars Stage Livestream Lineup

I always look forward to what Taylor Guitars presents each year at The NAMM Show. Here is the lineup for the Taylor Stage Livestream next week. It can be watched online at:

Thursday, Jan. 22 

4 p.m. PST
Chase Bryant 

Young newcomer Chase Bryant's rollicking guitar wall and Southern rock-tinged sound has earned accolades from all over. A standout at CMA Music Fest 2014, his debut single "Take It On Back" is a Top 15 hit and one of the fastest rising singles of the year by a male country artist. Last November, Bryant opened for Brantley Gilbert and has a self-titled EP out now. 

5 p.m. PST
The SteelDrivers 

Nashville's The SteelDrivers fuse country, soul, and contemporary influences to create an unapologetic hybrid that Vince Gill describes as simply "an incredible combination." They have been nominated for three Grammys, four IBMA awards, and the AMA's New Artist of the Year, and English pop star Adele has performed the their song "If It Hadn't Been For Love," saying "they're a blues, country, bluegrass, swagger band and they are brilliant." 

Friday, Jan. 23

4 p.m. PST

Vocalist Erica Driscoll and Blondfire channel the synth-pop feel of British new wave bands like Depeche Mode and New Order, combined with the larger-than-life arena-rock ambitions of U2, Coldplay, and Arcade Fire on new album Young Heart. The band's penchant for gloriously melodic pop hooks has been featured on national tours with AWOLNATION and Foals. 

5 p.m. PST
Vintage Trouble

Since the release of their debut album, L.A.-based Vintage Trouble (pictured above) has gone from playing intimate hometown clubs to opening for The Rolling Stones, The Who, Bon Jovi, and Lenny Kravitz, and playing festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, and SXSW. 

Saturday, Jan. 24

3 p.m. PST
Zane Carney

Known for his current touring work with John Mayer and Broadway's "Spider Man -Turn Off The Dark," Zane has shared the stage with the likes of Stevie Wonder and Keith Urban, worked collaboratively with Bono (who has referred to Zane as "the best guitarist in New York"), and opened for U2, Fergie, and The Black Crowes with his band Carney. With a voice compared Jeff Buckley, Zane has stepped out as a solo artist writing, performing, and singing to sold out audiences. 

4 p.m. PST 
Alex & Sierra

Since meeting on the beach in Florida when they were in high school, Alex & Sierra have recently gone on to win TV's The X Factor, with their numbers from the show selling over one million copies, earning 69 million views on YouTube overall, and twice reaching No. 1 on iTunes. They have since released their major label debut album, It's About Us and worked with Jason Mraz.

5 p.m. PST 
Boyce Avenue

A Florida-based band of three brothers, popular for its strong acoustic roots and melodic rock sound, Boyce Avenue has over 300,000,000 views on YouTube to date and more than 700,000 subscribers, making theirs one of the most frequented YouTube channels worldwide. On the heels of its initial whirlwind success in the Philippines, the band has independently released its full-length debut album of original music, All We Have Left.
