2014 Artists

Steve Grand

Website: www.stevegrand.com

 

Steve Grand

Concert Headliner

Steve Grand is a singer-songwriter who came to national acclaim in 2013 after coming out and releasing a video featuring prominent gay themes in a country-leaning song called "All-American Boy" which went viral. His follow-up "Stay" was also a big hit. Early this year, he launched a Kickstarter campaign for his album and ended up with a record amount of contributions - the most ever for an music artist not associated with a major label! He will be performing at WorldPride in Toronto before coming to Seattle PrideFest.

Tickets are required for this show. See our website for info or to buy tickets





Chely Wright

Chely Wright

Concert Headliner

Ms Wright probably has the right to call herself the first pioneer in C/W music as the first major female star to come out in May of 2010. The multi million selling artist was praised for her coming out, a move that cost her many conservative fans (and thousands of dollars in lost revenue) but earned her many more new fans in the LGBTQ community. Since then, Wright was the star of her documentary, WISH ME AWAY which played in Seattle in 2011 at the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival. She will be performing at WorldPride in Toronto before coming to Seattle PrideFest.

To see these guys in action is like watching pure magic. Hence the name? When the members of Magic Mouth come together it's as if every legendary performer got together, had a mad orgy, and these babies were the result.
