Before the explosion of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, the music industry had not yet seen a forward-thinking artist rise from the internet to find success in the mainstream. But all of that changed in the form of a lone man and his guitar. The year was 2007 when the #1 Myspace artist took the leap from the early days of social networking to the world of big box retail, releasing his first album commercially through a brand new record label. The artist was Secondhand Serenade, the label was Glassnote Records and the album was titled, Awake. Fast forward a full decade later and the team is getting back together. Not only is Secondhand Serenade (real name John Vesely) back on the Glassnote roster, but the album that started their relationship many moons ago is being brought back to life in the form of Awake: Remixed & Remastered, 10 Years & 10,000 Tears Later.

While it may have been the first album for both the artist and the newly birthed record label, the fruits of their efforts together would not take long to see the light of day. Secondhand Serenade quickly shot to the forefront of the emo-pop movement, selling out tours, appearing on late night television and hitting the top of the radio charts along the way. Armed with a multi-platinum single in “Fall For You”, a growing reputation as a world class live performer, and his trusty acoustic guitar, the California based musician became the face of a genre.

After a relocation to Nashville, Tennessee and a break from touring, Vesely is now re-emerging with this 10-year anniversary album coming out on February 10th, 2017 and a full blown tour in support of its release. The disc is set to include all 12 songs which originally appeared on the first retail release of Awake, along with 2 brand new songs. The originals have also been updated with some additional production on top of being remixed and remastered.

“I really wanted to update these songs and give them a bit of a fuller sound without changing the emotion and vibe. My fans have always gravitated towards these songs and this style so it was important to enhance them without changing the way they make my listeners feel” says Vesely. He continued, “Even the two additional songs I added still capture the vibe of the original album. I just can’t wait for my fans to hear how it all came out.”

Just three days after the album’s release, Secondhand Serenade will embark on his first headlining tour in years starting in Charlotte on February 13th. He’ll playing the Awake album from front to back and may even throw in a few fan favorites along the way. Also coming along for the trek are Red Jumpsuit Apparatus front man Ronnie Winter as well as Hawthorne Heights, all playing acoustic on what’s sure to be the throwback emo-pop tour of the year.

“The fact that I get to not only put out another album with the first label that ever took a chance on me, but also get to hit the road and see my fans alongside old friends of mine that I’ve toured with before… I just couldn’t ask for a better way to start 2017. It’s a reunion in so many exciting ways,” says the singer/songwriter.

Sometimes the things you love give you HOPE. Sometimes you HATE the things you love the most. But, often times the things you love can make you HURT.

Hawthorne Heights return to form with Hurt, the long awaited third EP in their Hate/Hope/Hurt trilogy. Hurt not only shines with elements rooted in their classic sound, but also showcases a maturity and level of confidence that can only be honed after twelve years of being a band. After spending the better part of a year on the road celebrating the ten year anniversary of their debut album The Silence in Black and White, the band returned home to Ohio to begin writing for Hurt. Feeling newly inspired and clearly invigorated, what resulted was a collection of eight songs that celebrate looking back while boldly pushing forward. "Everything that ends will soon become new again." Vocalist/Lyricist JT Woodruff says: "Sometimes the past haunts you like a ghost, but we weren't afraid to become the ghosts of what we used to be. There is still some life and hope left in these bones, and we will continue to suck the marrow out of life."

KENNY HOLLAND
There is something unique and refreshing about Kenny Holland. Something that you truly must come in contact with to understand. His music is soulful and honest while still appealing to pop cravings. It quickly becomes hard to believe that, at just seventeen years old, it's possible to write ballads this powerful and hooks this infectious.

Holland has come a long way since his start growing up in Michigan and only performing at high school events. From playing sold-out shows, to recording a full-length record, to taking social networking by storm. It's only a matter of time before Kenny and his songs are recognized world-wide.

In a day and age where singer/songwriters are a dime a dozen, Kenny brings something new to the table. Check out his debut single, "So What", today!
