Having come a long way from the days of promoting his music in parking lots of concert venues, singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin ended 2021 by playing to sold-out crowds across North America. With him, Alec brought on the road an already impressive resumé, having reached over 4 billion global streams, over 10 million social media followers across his platforms, over 70 million in playlist reach, and over 1 billion YouTube views on his channel.

Following successes such as "Let Me Down Slowly" (double platinum), "Water Fountain" (platinum) and "Oh My God" (gold), the self-made storyteller looks to continue to prove himself as what TIME calls "a pop storyteller for the next generation." With new tracks such as "The Way You Felt" and "Older," which have combined for over 50 million streams, Alec delivered powerful performances of each song on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" and "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," respectively.

Alec looks to continue his retrospective run of new music into 2022 and show his fans and the world why PAPER Magazine hailed him as "a storyteller who's mastered the art of turning everyday heartbreak into compelling pop songs."

Sara Kays writes the songs she needs to hear. As if setting her diary to music, the Nashville-based solo singer-songwriter creates refreshingly honest alternative pop with her relatable storytelling. While Sara eventually caught fire on social media, she kicked off her career in the most old school way possible. Receiving her first guitar as a gift at 12 years old, Kays often busked for two to three hours at local restaurants multiple times per week in high school. Becoming "a job," she'd cover everything from "Champagne Supernova" by Oasis to Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling In Love With You." The skilled performer also practiced constantly and developed her chops on acoustic guitar and ukulele. The rising artist has since amassed a loyal fanbase including 1.5M followers on TikTok. By sharing raw performances of her original songs about her own internal struggles, the 21-year-old artist began normalizing difficult topics, comforting listeners, and building an audience that functioned more like a supportive community
