About the Event
A NIGHT OF MUSIC WITH TAYLOR PHELAN & MIKE MAINS
FRIDAY, MAY 18 AT 8PM
Taylor Phelan is a songwriter, singer and indie-rock artist. Phelan was raised within a musical family in his home state of Texas and began to play guitar and write his own songs at 16, cutting his teeth at coffee shops. He started his professional career as the founder and frontman for the Chicago-based alternative band, The Canes. In 2014, Phelan was a favorite contestant on the seventh season of NBC’s hit reality series, The Voice, an experience that revealed his tremendous talent as a solo artist. In 2015, shortly after signing with the indie label, Native Nine Records, Phelan teamed up with Nashville-based producer Joshua D Niles to work on his first collection of solo material. The long awaited first single from Phelan, a song called "Settle Down", was premiered by Yahoo Music in the spring of 2017 to rave reviews. Phelan's debut EP followed in August with the first of a two-part release, a seven song collection of music cleverly titled "1 of 2". In support, Phelan has since been featured in Huffington Post, Paste Magazine, Alternative Press and a dozen others while touring the country with a spectacularly engaging live band.
Mike Mains & The Branches is an American indie rock band, based in Michigan. It consists of Mike and Shannon Mains.They first made their way into the national spotlight after the release of their debut album, Home, in 2010. The band's music is most readily identified by their use of pop melodies in contrast with singer Mains' often aggressive vocal style. Their debut album, Home, was produced by Tyler Orr and mixed by Matt Malpass. The album was initially released independently, but after touring consistently for over a year in support of their debut, Mike Mains & The Branches signed to Platinum Pop Music.
