Seal Bio:

Grammy Award-winning multi-Platinum singer and songwriter Seal explores love and all of its implications, idiosyncrasies and intricacies on his seventh full-length album, “Seal 7” [Reprise]. For the album, he was reunited with longtime collaborator and producer Trevor Horn, whichcontinued a partnership that began with his debut, Platinum-certified “Seal” in 1991, quadruple-Platinum “Seal II” in 1994, gold-selling “Human Being” in 1998, “Seal IV” in 2003 and “Soul 2” in 2011. Originally born in London, his inimitable voice was first heard on Adamski’s 1991 club smash “Killer.” Another Top 10 hit, “Crazy,” arrived shortly thereafter, as Seal went on to achieve global acclaim with his debut, even winning the prestigious BRIT Award for “Best British Male” in 1992. Songs such as the legendary “Kiss From a Rose” would turn him into a superstar as he received three Grammy Awards in the categories of “Song of the Year,” “Record of the Year” and “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.” His worldwide album sales exceed 30 million to date. Outside of the studio and beyond the stage, he served as a coach on “The Voice” Australia in 2012 and 2013.

 

The Band Perry Bio:

Grammy Award-winning sibling trio The Band Perry have proven an unstoppable presence in music.  Their 2010 album, “The Band Perry,” delivered five hit singles: the sextuple-Platinum chart-topper “If I Die Young” (whose video is now Vevo-certified for reaching 100 million plays), the Platinum-selling “You Lie” and “All Your Life” (a No. 1 single), “Hip to My Heart” and the Gold-certified “Postcard from Paris.” For their Gold-certified 2013 follow-up, “Pioneer,” The Band Perry offered up the Platinum-selling No. 1 singles “Better Dig Two” and “DONE.,” as well as smash hits “Don't Let Me Be Lonely” and “Chainsaw.” Kicking off the “We Are Pioneers World Tour” in late 2013, the trio played hundreds of venues from Seattle to Sweden.  In February 2015, The Band Perry won the Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, having also earned multiple awards from the Country Music Association, CMT Music Awards, the American Country Awards and the Academy of Country Music. Recently named ambassadors for Teen Cancer America, The Band Perry are putting the finishing touches on their third studio album. The band's anthemic new single, “Live Forever,” and its accompanying music video are out now. For tour dates and more on TBP, visit thebandperry.com.

 

Charlie Puth Bio:

Charlie Puth is gearing up to release his debut album, “Nine Track Mind,” featuring his current single, “One Call Away.” After arriving in Los Angeles in July 2014, Puth signed with Atlantic Records and co-wrote, co-produced and was featured on Wiz Khalifa’s “Furious 7” ballad, “See You Again” — a 4x-Platinum smash that topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 12 weeks, tying the record for the longest run at No. 1 for a rap song, and became No. 1 in over 100 countries, while its video racked up more than a billion YouTube views. He followed that up with the British chart-topper “Marvin Gaye,” featuring Meghan Trainor, which gave Puth another Platinum record and his second Top 40 hit in the U.S. Puth ended 2015 with an array of accolades, including two TEEN CHOICE Awards, a Hollywood Film Award, two American Music Award, MTV Video Music Award, and MTV Europe Award nominations, plus a Golden Globe nomination for “Best Original Song” and three Grammy Award nominations, including one in the coveted Song of the Year category.
