About Bryson Tiller:
As heartfelt as he is inextricably modern, Bryson Tiller has helped define a generation of atmospheric, trap-inflected R&B. Since releasing his 2015 debut album, T R A P S O U L, the Louisville native has merged delicately powerful melodies with sleek, ambient soundscapes for earnest stories of lust, fractured love, and his own fairy tale come-up, theme music for people with emotions to unfurl and dreams to pursue. Laced with ruminations on romance, as well as spurts of chest-thumping machismo, his maiden LP proved his penchant for hitmaking, as songs like “Don’t” and “Exchange” were both certified 4x platinum by the RIAA. T R A P S O U L itself has been certified 3x platinum. Tiller continued building on his success with 2017’s True to Self, a reflective sophomore LP that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart before eventually being certified gold. That same year, he popped out for a feature on DJ Khaled’s Rihanna-assisted single, “Wild Thoughts,” a lusty, infectious single that’s since been certified 6x platinum. The following year, he joined H.E.R. on “Could’ve Been,” a contemplative single that has been certified 2x platinum. In 2020, he reaffirmed his status as an R&B tastemaker with A N N I V E R S A R Y, an LP released on the fifth anniversary of his first album. Featuring production from Noah “40” Shebib, a guest spot from Drake (“Outta Time”), as well as the trapsoul stylings that made him a star, the album is both a tribute to fans and a reminder of Tiller’s status as a genre-shaping force in the world of music. Around the same time, he pulled up on “Luv Is Dro,” a nostalgic single from his fellow Kentucky native Jack Harlow. The video for the song has earned over 3.6 million YouTube views since its release. Pairing honesty with musical invention, Tiller has secured more than 8.8 billion streams, 2.4 billion worldwide video views, multiple BET Awards, Grammy nominations, and a legacy as one of the most successful R&B artists Kentucky’s ever produced.
Three-time Grammy® Award-winning and multi-platinum-selling artist Pentatonix has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide and performed for hundreds of thousands of fans at their sold out shows across the globe. Their YouTube channel boasts over 19 million subscribers, yielding more than 5 billion video views.
Pentatonix has had two #1 albums on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart – 2015’s gold-certified self-titled album and the 2x platinum That’s Christmas To Me. The group has received multiple RIAA certifications for multi-platinum, platinum and gold-selling albums and singles, a Daytime Emmy nomination, starred in three holiday specials on NBC and appeared in the feature film Pitch Perfect 2.
Last summer, Pentatonix released their At Home EP, which featured new arrangements of “Blinding Lights” (The Weeknd), “when the party’s over” (Billie Eilish), “Break My Heart” (Dua Lipa) and “Dreams” (The Cranberries), before releasing two original songs, “Happy Now” and “Be My Eyes” (from their album, The Lucky Ones), as well as an arrangement and video for Tears for Fears’ “Mad World.” The quintet also celebrated the end of 2020 with a new holiday collection, We Need A Little Christmas, a performance at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and NBC’s New Year’s Eve broadcast. Pentatonix released their new original album, The Lucky Ones, in February of 2021 and The Lucky Ones Deluxe in September of 2021. Most recently, the band released their 2021 holiday album, Evergreen. The group is currently on their Pentatonix: The Evergreen Christmas Tour 2021, which kicked off in November of 2021.
