About Braiden Sunshine:
Braiden Sunshine is a 16 year old Singer-Songwriter, performing musician, and car enthusiast with a taste for pop, rock, and blues.
2015 fan favorite and semi-finalist on NBC’s The Voice, Braiden Sunshine is not new to the spotlight. Braiden got his start in music at a very young age. At five years old Braiden began singing in his church choir before quickly moving on to join forces with other like-minded/talented musicians and releasing their self-titled debut in 2012.
In late 2013, Madison Red released their follow-up “Middle Ground” which quickly catapulted Braiden and his talent to a much larger stage. Over the next few years Braiden continued his passion for music as he embarked out on his own solo path playing up and down the east coast and opening for national artists such as Huey Lewis and The Blues Traveler and capturing the hearts and ears of a much larger audience.
As the summer of 2015 drew to a close, Braiden was finishing up in the studio when he received the call to audition for NBC’s The Voice. He went on to compete all the way to the semi-finals that season. His young and innocent charm quickly snatched the support of the judges and garnered national attention and winning the hearts of fans all across the country.
After The Voice, with an army of young fans behind him, Braiden began work on a new album.Braiden released his first three songs digitally with enthusiastic reaction from his followers and fans on YouTube and hitting the Top 50 on iTunes with his single “Reality.” Although he is back in school, Braiden is playing shows on weekends and is hard at work in the studio. His new single Heartbeat is available now, as well as his first self-titled EP.
About Hilton Park Band:
2016 Nomination, ‘Roots Act of the Year,’ New England Music Awards
2015-Winner, ‘Best In State: Maine,’ New England Music Awards
2014-Nomination, ‘Americana/Roots Act of the Year,’ New England Music Awards
2014-Nomination, ‘Best Americana/Roots/Folk Group,’ Spotlight Awards
A father, a son and a family friend who started writing and performing their music together just for fun, have become the band the Boston Examiner says has “reinvented acoustic.”
Hailing from Southern Maine, award winning Acoustic Roots trio HILTON PARK continue to share their unique blend of timeless tales and soulful Blood Harmony with audiences young and old. Hilton Park is finding that in an industry where individual talent often goes unnoticed, family unity and harmony can prevail.
Hilton Park began in the Spring of 2013, as a fun bonding project for father and son Bruce and Conor Hilton. When friends and family started commenting on the ethereal blend of their voices, they decided to record a few songs and find an audience. Adding Gregg Pannier’s piano and voice to the mix, the unique flavor that is Hilton Park took shape. Their first CD, “Greener Grass,” was called “one of the best sounding releases of the year” by Seacoast Online, and led to a 2014 New England Music Award nomination.
HILTON PARK is known in the Northeastern U.S. for earthy, emotionally expressive and superbly crafted Americana, Folk & Blues. The Third Half says, “Hilton Park is about as New England as clam chowder and flour biscuits… rootsy folk that imparts an old time feel in brand new songs. A listener would undoubtedly imagine themselves comfortably on an old front porch, right next to this dynamic trio.” Two albums and 3 New England Music Award nominations later (including the win in 2015 for “Best In State: Maine”), Hilton Park continues to weave stories into instantly classic melodies and lyrics that are as unforgettable as the ‘stick in your head’ songs from the peak era of beloved songwriters like Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Band, but with modern insight for today’s audience. Every song tells a story, and there’s a story behind every song.
This quote from a live review echoes what folks all over are saying about Hilton Park; "They are the folks next door who just happen to be virtuoso musicians, styling traditional folk/country instruments with fresh and original tunes. But the biggest treat may be the vocal harmonies. Our audience was enthralled. Edge of our seats, truly."
