Addison Agen takes the stage with her full band in Fort Wayne for the first time since her two sold-out shows at The Embassy Theater in January 2018. Neat Neat Neat Records presents this opportunity to experience an intimate performance at Fort Wayne’s favorite original music venue, The Brass Rail.
Eighteen-year-old Addison Agen grew up in the Midwest music hub of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Her purposeful, thoughtful songwriting showcases her wisdom beyond her years. Addison’s warm, earthy voice expresses the organic nature of her music. As first runner up on Season 13 of NBC’s The Voice, Addison captured audiences with her emotive attention to lyrics and storyline.
Addison will be joined by North Carolina’s The Collection.
Combining the energy and volume of a marching band with the sing-along sensibility of pop melodies, The Collection has quickly become a commanding force on the national stage. After an initial release wrestling with deaths within community, Ars Moriendi, praised by NPR and American Songwriter, and the whittled-down band's loss-of-faith follow-up, "Listen To The River," who's single, Sing Of The Moon quickly garnered over 5 Million plays, the group presented "Entropy," a personal record detailing the de- and re-construction that bookend vocalist Wimbish's divorce, wreck, move, and loss of community.
Since that first release, the band has been busy, touring nationally on shows with a variety of acts, from The Oh Hellos and Family & Friends, to mewithoutYou and Josh Garrels. This year brings exponential excitement, however, with Entropy debuting at #6 on iTunes singer/songwriter charts and #11 on National College Radio in December, single Beautiful Life hand-picked by Megan Trainor for her Wedding Songs Spotify Official playlist, and an exciting Top Shelf placement in NPR's Tiny Desk Contest, a top 10 spot out of 6000 entries.
With that energy and fire, The Collection are moving forward into the Breathe Till I'm Full Tour, a celebration/commiseration of all that is life, from the good to the bad, and the ugly. Through changing and condensing lineups, near-fatal bike wrecks, and the energy of all that has come of the last several years of hard work, the 7-piece indie-folk band maintains their original vision: to create safe and open space for folks wherever they're at in their lives.
