The Walters

After a 4-year hiatus,indie stalwarts The Waltersreturn infull forceamid the widespread success of their viral hit “I Love You So” on TikTok and DSPs, signing to Warner Records and announcing their first three headline shows since 2017.Hailing from Chicago, The Waltersartfully intersect clever songwriting, catchy hooks, and soundtrack-worthy instrumentation steeped in a bit of a magic. Listeners first fell under the spell of the Chicago quintet—Luke Olson[lead vocals, guitar], Walter Kosner[lead guitar], MJ Tirabassi[rhythm guitar, vocals], Danny Wells[bass], and Charlie Ekhaus[drums]—when they independently released 2014’s Songs For DadsEP. Among many highlights, “Fancy Shoes”generated 30 million streams with “New Girl (Tom’s Song)” and “Life” on its heels. 2015’s Young Menonly maintained the group’s momentum as they attracted an impassioned and dedicated fan base. They captivated crowds in hallowed venues across their hometown such as The Metro, performed atRiot Fest, and left the audience amazed at Lollapalooza2017. Following the latter, their paths diverged during a mutual hiatus. In early 2021, the musicians reconnected and started plotting their return when the viral success of “I Love You So” accelerated their timeline. The song has swept across TikTok with over 270K fan-created videos. A standout from 2014’s Songs For Dads, its success overwhelmingly translated to DSPS, reeling in north of 133 million streams on Spotify and scaling the Global Top 50, currently at #40 and climbing, as well as #45 in the US Spotify Top 50. Signing to Warner Records, The Walters launch a new era in 2021 with their first shows in four years and plans for more music to come.

Cece Coakley

Cece Coakley is finding her sound in real time. Influenced by songwriting greats like Brandi Carlile, Taylor Swift and Phoebe Bridgers, Coakley has a knack for making ordinary moments feel monumental. Over the course of 2021, the 20-year-old singer-songwriter began turning her dreamy guitar ballad demos into fully realized songs. Her debut single “Cliché,” released earlier this year, has garnered over half a million Spotify streams to date. On her upcoming debut EP, Coakley digs deeper, skirting the line between indie and americana over sliding electric guitars. Musing about romantic clichés and hookup culture with a wisdom beyond her years, Coakley is an old soul living in the digital age. She has a gift for crafting moments into songs, a powerhouse voice to share them with, and nothing but time.
