      EVENT DETAILS
      Thad Cockrell with Will Overman

      About Thad Cockrell:
      American singer-songwriter Thad Cockrell (lead singer of LEAGUES) inspires his audience to dream outside their means through thoughtful interpretation of relatable circumstance. Cockrell NATURALLY displays himself within each of his musical masterpieces, connecting listeners and providing an outlet for self-understanding.

      “I truly believe that the song is just the tool given to create the connection, and through connection we all slowly but surely become a little more seen, a little bit more understood and a little less alone.” 

      About Will Overman:
      Will Overman’s incomparable voice -- he made it through two levels of NBC’s “The Voice” --  is at once melodic as it is relentless, as refreshingly unique as it is familiar and evocative.

      Overman’s music — call it Americana, a mix of folk, country, rock, and pop — is as energetic as it is passionate. It can be haunting and evocative yet sincere, sweet.

      Musically and lyrically, Overman draws deeply from his Virginia roots, producing a rare combination of enticing straight-ahead, hard-charging rhythm and riffs and introspective melodies paired with sleek vocals. He takes on love, life and loss. All with an edge driven deep in reality.

      Whether performing solo or with a full band, Overman is a poet, reminiscent of a young Bruce Springsteen, (think “Nebraska”) or Bob Dylan. He’s a folksinger and a rocker (think “Born to Run”), whether performing solo or fronting a talented group of musicians swinging from flawless riffs to intoxicating beats.

      And while his music is rooted deeply in the South, it transcends genres and convention, blending essential elements of rock, folk, and country, wrapped in a thin varnish of pop sensibility, to create a concoction reminiscent of Ryan Adams, Josh Ritter, with the softness of James Taylor.

      Overman has quickly built a reputation as a fan favorite at music festivals including MerleFest, Rooster Walk Music and Arts Festival, Front Porch Fest and Appaloosa Roots Music Festival, and Lynchfest. He was a finalist in the “Rockn to Lockn” contest.

      Overman has played hundreds of shows from Burlington, Vermont to Columbus, Ohio,  New York City and Washington, D.C., to Nashville and Knoxville, Tennessee, and in between. He’s busked in lonely subway stations and performed to sold-out crowds in Charlottesville.

      In 2017, Overman found himself at a crossroads, both literally and figuratively, professionally and personally. He said farewell to the band that has borne his name over the past several years and embarked on his first solo project since 2013.

      “Crossroads,” his newly released solo EP produced by Rockfish Music, is without a doubt his most self-reflective work yet. He recently submitted one of the singles, “Decatur,” to NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert.

      Drawing comparisons to Jason Isbell and Damien Rice, Overman carries an unwavering commitment to his music and to his fans. Soulful and unforgettable. Addictive and sometimes playful. Meaningful and real. Those factors, plus a transcendent passion and unyielding commitment to his craft, are what truly define this rising, must-see young artist, who has only just begun what promises to be a long and fruitful musical journey.
