It’s probably (well, definitely) somewhat of an understatement to say Collective Soul frontman and chief songwriter Ed Roland is unwaveringly driven in his desire to double down on doing more of what he does best — making music, sweet music, both in the studio and onstage.
“People ask me if I have a hobby, but for me, it’s just music,” Roland confirms. “I mean, I don’t know what else to do, because that’s what I love to do. I live in the studio — but then the time comes when I go, ‘Well, now I wanna go play live.’ I just love the creation of music and the process of finding out what’s gonna happen with it next. That kinda defines it all for me.”
In following his ever-tenacious muse, Roland is always looking to connect with his current Collective Soul bandmates any which way he can. Actually, the word current is a bit of a misnomer, since Roland truly believes the Collective Soul of the here and now is as permanently intertwined as any group of musicians he’s ever worked with over the course of his illustrious career. “It’s worth noting See What You Started by Continuing was really the demo for this band as it stands right now,” Roland points out, referring to the 2015 album that realigned the rock quintet’s creative compass. “I mean, this is the band for the rest of my life. This is it, man.”
SWITCHFOOT has sold almost 10 million copies worldwide of their eleven studio albums (including their 2003 double-platinum breakthrough The Beautiful Letdown and 2009’s Grammy Award-winning Hello Hurricane), racked up a string of Alternative radio hit singles, and performed sold-out tours with over 5 million concert tickets sold in over 40 countries around the world. SWITCHFOOT has raised over $2 million dollars to aid kids in their community through their BRO-AM Foundation. Through their unique blend of emotionally intelligent and uplifting brand of alternative rock, SWITCHFOOT has earned a devoted and loyal global fan base.
SWITCHFOOT consists of Jon Foreman (vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass), Jerome Fontamillas (keys, guitar) and Chad Butler (drums).
Opening Artist: Jade Jackson
Jade Jackson has spent much of her time in the small California town of Santa Margarita,
working in her folks’ restaurant, jotting down verses and picking out chords during breaks.
Growing up in a household without television or internet, the family record player was her main source of entertainment, revolving a range of artists from Johnny Cash and Hank Williams to The Smiths, The Cure and assorted punk outfits. At age four her parents discovered she was legally blind and relied heavily on sound, spurring an interest in music that led to teaching herself guitar and writing songs by age 13.
Produced by Social Distortion frontman, Mike Ness, Jackson’s debut album, Gilded, introduced her preternatural writing and roots-rough sound in 2017. Following her sophomore album, Wilderness (also produced by Ness in 2019), Jackson reached out to fellow singer-songwriter Aubrey Sellers, and Breaking Point was born — a gritty, roots-inspired rock album with an indie-pop sensibility. On the horizon for Jackson is her third solo album, funded by the money she’s saved over the years while living at home and working at her parents’ restaurant. It is her most honest and boundary-pushing work yet — its sound built on the heels of adversity and sheer perseverance.
