ALBERT CUMMINGS

Albert Cummings returns to the Wildey! Albert Cummings writes, plays and sings the blues like nobody else. He has played with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, and Buddy Guy.

The blues is best served up live, with an enthusiastic audience and a killin’ band, and that’s exactly what guitarist Albert Cummings does[…]. Cummings effortlessly shifts from chimney subdued stylings to raucous roadhouse raunch to soaring yet stinging lead lines, driving his audience to frenzy in all the right places.” – Guitar Edge Magazine

HOWIE DAY

Howie Day’s emotionally resonant lyrics and inventive melodies have earned him both critical praise and a legion of devoted fans. He is known for his energetic, heartfelt shows, where he connects with audiences through the strength of his songwriting and his quirky sense of humor. Day’s warm tenor voice “soars into fluttering, high registers, but also grates with real, pleading grit,” as one critic put it. After sales of over a million albums and two Top 10 hits, Day is back on the road showcasing old favorites, as well as new material from his upcoming studio release. A native of Bangor, Maine, Day began playing piano at age five and guitar at age 12. By 15, he was writing his own songs and performing across New England. Shortly after graduating high school, Day became a fixture at college coffeehouses across the U.S. He wrote, financed and released his first effort, Australia, which was named Best Debut Album at the 2001 Boston Music Awards. The Boston Globe called Day “gorgeously seasoned, far beyond his years” with “a brave, beautiful singing voice.” During his relentless touring schedule, Day began experimenting with effects pedals and loop-sampling techniques as he performed, layering live percussion with vocal harmonies and guitar parts to become a veritable one-man band. He went on to sell over 30,000 copies of Australia as he navigated the independent music scene and continued to hone his craft. After signing with Epic Records, Day released his major-label debut, Stop All The World Now, and hit the road to support it. The constant promotion paid off: Stop was certified gold in the U.S. and spawned two Top 10 radio hits: “She Says” and the platinum single “Collide.” After three subsequent years of intense worldwide touring, Day moved to Los Angeles and returned to the studio. His next release,Sound the Alarm, built on the emotionally complex spirit of its predecessor and delved into Day’s journey from indie wunderkind to platinum-selling artist. It’s lead single, “Be There,” became a staple at modern AC radio. After parting ways with Epic and relocating to New York City in 2010, Day released the Ceasefire EP on his own label, Daze. New songs began to emerge and evolve at shows across North America and Australia. Day is currently immersed in the recording process of his fourth studio album, which he is crafting with the help of longtime friend and producer Mike Denneen. “There is a sense of inherent creativity and imagination to these sessions,” Day says. “Everythingseems to be in perfect balance, and I want to capture that energy as it’s happening. Nothing is over or under thought, it’s just in the moment.”

The JIM MESSINA Band

Jim Messina’s consummate legacy of musical prowess spans five decades, three acclaimed rock super groups, a vibrant solo career, and a dizzying array of game-­‐ changing producing and engineering credits, including the Doors, Lee Michaels, and Herb Alpert. He is an indisputable expert in the fine art of making hit music. After the mid-­‐60s, while acting as producer and recording engineer for Buffalo Springfield, Messina joined the temperamental band as bassist. After Buffalo Springfield split up in 1968, Messina’s friendship with group founder Richie Furay led to the creation of Poco. Jim switched to playing lead guitar, and the band went on to define a new musical genre that came to be known as country-­‐rock. After two studio and one live album with Poco, Messina chose to leave the group and devote his time to record producing. That fateful decision led to his 1971 collaboration with newcomer Kenny Loggins. The resulting duo, Loggins and Messina, went on to record nine albums over a period of seven years, amassing sixteen million in sales. "Poco had been some real good-time music,” reflects Messina. "Loggins & Messina just took that a step further and made it more sophisticated and attainable. Through the years, the Loggins & Messina period yielded the stuff I’m most proud of.” Expect a musical cross section of his entire career when Jim Messina and his band comes to the Wildey!
