You can usually tell how far an artist is going to make it based on the crowd’s reaction. After seeing Kid Quill on his first headlining tour, we know he’s on his way to the top. The crowd was hype from the minute he walked on the stage until the last encore, enthusiastically singing, jumping, and dancing along the entire show. Kid Quill’s gone from “the opener,” on tour with artists like Bryce Vine, to headlining his own “Meet Me at Sunset” Tour across the US.
The tour was in support of his latest album, “Sunset Diner,” which draws inspiration from music of the 70s and 80s combined with his modern hip-hop sound.
We caught up with Kid Quill before the last night of tour at Mercury Lounge in NYC. Watch our interview and learn about his favorite part of touring, what’s coming next, and his go-to diner meal.

Finally all of our “come to America!” tweets paid off, and The Strypes made their triumphant return to tour across the US this Spring, including a stop at Mercury Lounge in NYC. They are one of our favorite artists to see live – Ross, Pete, Evan, and Josh play a loud, fast, and energetic set that has the entire club singing and dancing along. The Strypes are also incredibly talented musicians.

Country artist Canaan Smith played an intimate show at NYC’s Mercury Lounge last night. The show gave the lucky fans in the audience a preview of Canaan’s upcoming debut album, “Bronco,” out June 23rd. As if we weren’t already excited enough about his album, after hearing some of the new songs last night we are ecstatic. Canaan got the evening off to an energetic start with “Hole In A Bottle,” one of our favorite tracks off his self-titled EP. A song called “American Muscle” is guaranteed to become the next #MERICA theme song you’ll be blasting at your 4th of July picnic. It got the whole crowd rocking, with some over-enthusiastic dancers spilling their beers but no one minded because #MERICA.
Canaan also shared the meaning behind the title of his album, “Bronco,” explaining that he wanted to share himself and who he is through his album. The album’s title track is in honor of his brother, whom Canaan lost when he was younger. He dedicated the song to him in a touching tribute, giving the audience “a few moments of peace.”
Canaan ended the night with a singalong to his chart-climbing single “Love You Like That,” before hi-fiving everyone in the front row. We had a blast seeing the nitty gritty boy in the city for a night, and can’t wait until he’s back at the end of June for FarmBorough Festival! You can also catch him on tour with Dierks Bentley on the Sounds of Summer Tour.
