    Whitney SteeleB&N Fountain, 7-9pm

    Singer/Songwriter
    Whitney Steele has sharied the stage with Amy Grant, Kenny Loggins, Gin Blossoms, Lisa Loeb, J.R. Richards (of Dishwalla), Shawn Colvin, Casey Abrams, Eddie Money, Phil Keaggy and Tyler Hilton. 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

    Scott Semple of Hello SwindonB&N Fountain, 7-9pm

    Indie Alternative Guitarist
    The musical direction of Hello Swindon can only be described as eclectic.

    They are just as likely to come with a country–rock ditty as they are to rip into a ska or reggae song. Rock and roll is at the heart of things, but Hello Swindon does it in an acoustic-electric style that retains the energy and fun, but hints at the folksy blues beginnings of America’s greatest gift to the world.

    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
