The Union Drifters
The Union Drifters
From the wild west to twisted tales of love and loss, The Union Drifters bring a new unique style of storytelling to our modern day era. Based out of Las Vegas, Nevada this folk-rock band is driven by heartfelt harmonies and seamless songwriting. The Union Drifters began 6 years ago when Richard Mann grabbed his guitar on impulse and played all night on the streets of downtown Riverside California. Mann was later joined by fellow friends and musicians, Miles Van Blarcom on guitar, Brittney Hauser on bass and vocals, Spenser Kalnin on trumpet and fiddle and Kevin Bothwell on drums and vocals. With great anticipation The Union Drifters are planning a North American tour of their debut self titled album which is being released on January 19th, 2018.

Matt Morgan
Since early 2012, Matt Morgan has been pouring his energy and soul into music, sharing the stories and sounds of his heart with the world. Born in New Mexico, and currently based out of Las Vegas, Nevada, Morgan is an Americana singer/songwriter that evokes the truest emotions and is as vulnerable and honest as they come in his music. He says, “I can’t recall ever wanting to be a rockstar or a famous musician, I just needed an outlet for my heart to express itself, and writing songs and music has been the only way I know how ever since I was a little kid.” Matt had his start in his hometown of Las Cruces, New Mexico, by attending local open mic nights, but his passion and drive for music continually take him further. Over the past couple years, Morgan has shared the stage with Lee Brice, Montgomery Gentry, Darryl Worley, Chase Bryant, Aaron Watson and Tyler Ward among others. He currently plays events, festivals, venues and casinos primarily in the Southwest, and his long awaited album/EP is set to release late 2016. His musical influences include artists and songwriters such as Damien Rice, Nanci Griffith, Ed Sheeran, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, James Taylor, Ben Howard and Kacey Musgraves to name a few. Throughout Matt Morgan’s life, his heart and soul have been deeply impacted by the music of these artists, and his hope is that his music might have the same effect on someone else one day.
