Coming out of Houston, Texas with a robust sense of musical adventurousness, Robert Ellis crafts what has been called an impeccably structured sound-one that exists outside of neat categorization. Although listeners can hear traces of Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon, Ellis' use of basic country elements, like his soulful twang and fearless storytelling, coupled with jazzy chord voicings and shredded guitar lines, separate him from the rest. Get a taste of his diverse sound when he takes to the Mountain Stage.

Bright Light Social Hour:
Influenced by genres such as hard rock, R&B, electronica and pop, Bright Light Social Hour conjures a bold new version of psychedelic music. Their unique conjuring is displayed on their second album, which was released last year, "Space is Still the Place." On this illusionary record and at the band's performances, listeners find some songs that mirror harsh truths with guitars and blues energy, while the group's other dreamier electronic-influenced moments are about escaping those dark realities. Come hear this vibrant group and learn why they were named "Band of the Year" at SXSW in 2011.
Sat., Sept. 3:
Smooth Hound Smith:Established in 2012, and currently based in East Nashville, TN, Smooth Hound Smith records and performs a varied yet distinctive style of folky, garage-infused rhythm & blues. The foot stompin' American roots duo is comprised of "one-man-band" Zack Smith who plays guitar, foot drums, harmonica, banjo, and sings, as well as Caitlin Doyle who sings and plays percussion. Revel in their modern interpretation of early blues, soul, and rock 'n' roll at the final concert in our Summer Series!
