EH3 – Eric Himan Trio
EH3, The Eric Himan Trio, is led by Eric Himan, a Broken Arrow, OK-based singer/songwriter writing his original songs and touring the country for the past ten years, with Brandon Holder on drums (current drummer for Leon Russell) and Matt Hayes on bass (current bassist for Wayne Newton). Eric is currently on tour opening shows for Ani DiFranco. Eric has also recently toured with Leon Russell and shared the stage with Patty Griffin and Edwin McCain. His music can be heard on SiriusXM Coffeehouse and Hollister Stores nationwide. His latest disc, GRACEFULLY, is now out on iTunes, Amazon, and at his official website, www.erichiman.com. Eric Himan is endorsed by Fender Guitars.
The Outset is a four-piece pop/rock act from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Members John Coggins (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Chris Wylie (Drums), Travis Loafman (Guitar, Vocals), and Zach Kilburn (Bass) are native Oklahomans working to build a local fan base. The Outset received the “Best Rock Group” award from the Alchemy Songwriting Competition in December 2012. They released their EP, Set Sail on May 11th, 2013, which is available on iTunes and Spotify.
Bruce Flea is a group of four Cleveland High School students who came together in 2012. They have a very original sound exclusive to Bruce Flea. They have played various venues since their debut, including twice at Cain’s Ballroom opening for BADFISH and The Expendables as well as the Axis Stage at Rocklahoma 2013. They were nominated for a contest from KMOD to play on the Hard Rock Stage at Rocklahoma 2014 and made it to round two for this competition. They have been played weekly on the Homegroan show, The Edge, 104.5. They are currently all 18-19 years old and are graduating High School this year. Their debut album is available on ITunes, CD Baby.com, and Amazon. Their desire is to be signed with a label and their music to be shared and enjoyed by all. Please keep in mind that the video attached is from last year, and being young they have made major improvements in their style and musical talent since then. They currently are looking into a new video to express this. Please consider BRUCE FLEA! and “LIKE” them on Facebook! Thank you!
