Brandi Carlile is a West Coast singer/songwriter, bringing a wide variety of range and style to Panama City Beach, including pop, rock and folksy Americana. Early in her career, Carlile was scouted as a rising talent and was named Rolling Stone’s 2005 “Artist to Watch.” She is known for her chart-topping hits, including “The Story,” “Party of One,” and various albums, such as “The Firewatcher’s Daughter” and “Give Up the Ghost.” Her most recent hit, “The Joke,” is being recognized for six pending nominations in the 2019 Grammy Awards, in some of the largest categories, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. In addition to the Grammy Awards, Carlile has been recognized throughout her career by the GLAAD Media Awards, Americana Music Honors and Awards and the UK Americana Awards. Carlile has taken her passion for music to the next level, creating the inaugural Girls Just Wanna Weekend, including a variety of empowering, all-women songwriters and performers in Mexico this spring.
Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez started their journey in Nashville in 2005 songwriting, performing and creating some of today’s modern American folk, soul, blues and pop hits. This Los Angeles-based group became a “permanent duo” when they wed a few years later in 2009. With their collection of musical influencers, ranging from Stevie Wonder to Johnny Cash, JOHNNYSWIM provides a modern, eclectic approach to the Americana sound. Known for their full length record “Diamonds,” which held the number one spot on the Singer/Songwriter chart for several weeks, the duo has produced hits such as “Annie,” “Don’t Let It Get You Down,” and “First Try.” Most recently, JOHNNYSWIM is known for their hit “Home,” which serves as the theme song for the popular home improvement show Fixer Upper.
