    Christie Huff is an 18 year-old singer/songwriter from Mesa, Arizona. She has been singing her entire life, but just took up songwriting (and the guitar) in the past year. She takes her inspiration from the people and events in her life - she has written a song based on a friend’s experience with a husband leaving to fight in Iraq, and another one based on her family’s volunteer experiences around the world. Of course, a lot of her music is about the ups and downs of relationships and just being a young woman going after her dreams.

    Christie just finished recording her first album in Nashville and has been playing at different venues throughout the valley. She gets rave reviews everywhere she plays. She already has several music videos as well as videos of live performances up on her YouTube channel. She brings a fresh perspective to the country music scene.

    Adam & IB&N Fountain, 7-9pm

    Acoustic Indie Duo
    Adam & I are Adam & Andrea Melia, a compellingly fresh young duo from Nashville, TN. Capturing the unique energy of current americana styles, while giving a joyful nod to the sounds of the 50s and 60s, Adam & I make a music all their own. They weave with ease universally heartfelt lyrics through catchy and beautiful melodies, reminding us that “the song” is alive and well. “We’re songwriters,” says the duo. “We work really hard on our craft, and we love to challenge ourselves. We’re constantly trying to improve.” Their first EP, Amelia’s Living Room Volume 1 spent a week in the top 10 of NoiseTrade’s “Top Downloads” list in September 2012, and Adam & I quickly gained a reputation around Music City as “the best band you’ve never heard of.”

    Adam & I’s debut record is out now, featuring “We Have Love”, “If I’m Taken”, and “Honey I’ll Take the Fall for Loving You”. The tunes are spirited and liberating while maintaining a simple, strait-up quality, as their “We make music . You might like it” slogan suggests. Adam explains, “Make no mistake. We want people to dig our music. We want people to love it! Still, the courage to be yourself, to be honest… that’s what we’ve poured into our music. It feels like a huge risk sometimes, but it’s worth it.” “I’m not sure I can tell you what to expect,” says Andrea. “Who do we sound like? We sound like us.”

And yes, she was feelin' alright when I was invited on stage to sing “Feelin’ Alright” by the legendary Dave Mason (of Traffic). I have had the honor of singing the national anthem on several occasions for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago White Sox, and Phoenix Coyotes.

    Whitney did a few cartwheels when she found out she would be singing a duet with Robin Wilson of the Gin Blossoms, which is featured on her album “Any Thoughts on That?” It was a thrill for whitney when she was nominated for best pop single of the year for the Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards in 2007. Whitney pretty much mastered her back handspring when she won music video of the year and singer/songwriter of the year for the Phoenix Music Awards in 2008! Since then she has toured across the country and looks forward to her long awaited return in Phoenix.

    Whitney says, “While this journey has been filled with ups and downs, twists and turns, and many lessons learned, my deepest passion is living a life of purpose that will make God smile. It fills me with pure joy to announce that I am currently in the process of recording my first Christian album—“Beyond These Four Walls” has been stirring up in my heart for a very long time! The 12-song album will include original songs that I have poured my heart into, like “Be Silent, Be Still” and “Beyond These Four Walls,” as well as my own version of one of my favorite cover songs of all time...that would be “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen.&rdquo

    Think HorsesDistrict Stage, 7-10pm

    Original Alternative and Cover Band
    In ancient Greece, young medical students were exhorted to think horses, not zebras, when they heard the sound of hoofbeats outside; they were encouraged to resist the temptation to second-guess the obvious. A literal endorsement of simplicity. Summer flowers. The sound of a far-off train. One, two, three, just like that, simplicity in music is elusive. Sublime. In the end it's best to just listen. Isn’t it?

    Think Horses are: León - voice & guitar, Theo Belledin - keys and saxes, Adam Clark - batterie, Emilio Caruso - drums, John Chapman - contrabass
