ROOTSTOCK HEADLINERS

Eoin Harrington – ROCK HEADLINER
Dublin-born singer/songwriter Eoin Harrington unites classic Irish anthems with iconic American rock. The result? Pure rock perfection. Today, Eoin is a resident of San Francisco, where the West Coast sun that almost always shines, has inspired Eoin to produce life-affirming melodic, pop-rock songs with a touch of soul, earning him a legion of fans and critical praise in the process. Armed with an energetic stage presence, an electrifying six-piece band and his swoon-inducing lyrical delivery, Eoin is one of most intoxicating new voices to hit the music scene in years, following the release of his debut album, Confess, in 2011, and support tours with major artists such as Alanis Morrisette and Switchfoot. Having hypnotized California with his Irish charm, it won’t be long before the rest of the world surrenders too.  

Electro Deluxe – JAZZ HEADLINER
Electrifying France’s new jazz scene since 2001, Electro Deluxe offer a delectable sonic soup of organic, soulful and groove-heavy jazz and funk, all while looking as divine as they sound. Lead singer James Copley’s smooth and vibrant vocals fuse with his six-piece rock-steady rhythm section as they together fuse genres seamlessly, creating a musical storm that saw them eat up critical and commercial success in France with their most-recent album Circle. It hit the No.1 spot in the jazz chart and the Top 10 in the pop chart, paving the way for more future successes for sure. Performing in English, Electro Deluxe have become internationally renowned for their pulsating live performances, a trick that has seen them garner huge crowds at prestigious Jazz & Pop festivals all over Europe. Deservedly so.
