Hunter Pease

Playing at the Virginia Stage
Upcoming Show Dates: May 13 & June 19

Pease is a guitar player first, song-writer second, piano player third, recording engineer forth…and most recently, none of that matters. He is a full-time musician with an overwhelming love for writing, creating, recording, and performing. After touring extensively with The Shack Band for the past 12 years, Pease has now settled into a more sleep friendly world of music, playing private parties and weddings while still hitting the club scene with two new bands, Dead Sun, and a dj-outfit, ReDrum.

Tyler Meacham

Playing at the Virginia Stage
Upcoming Show Dates: May 27-29 & June 18-19

By immersing herself in the open mic scene in her hometown of Richmond, VA, Tyler Meacham met her current bandmates, going on to create her debut EP, 'Property', in 2019. The lyrically inspiring, genre-fusing EP carried Meacham & her band on a national tour, building a loyal following in the process. Laid on strong foundations of narrative-forward songwriting, Tyler's musical tastes and inspirations gravitate towards self-made songwriter-producers such as Sara Bareilles, Bleachers (Jack Antonoff), and OneRepublic (Ryan Tedder). Lyrically, everything Tyler writes pivots around emotional experiences from her past, honing in on love, loss, and her personal struggle with anxiety and self-worth.

The couples background in Rock, Blues, Soul and Funk make for an eclectic mix of raw emotion that makes their brand of music unmistakably and distinctively their own.
