Join Host Walt Richardson for a night of original music by some of the Valley's best singer/songwriters. The show is taped for broadcast on Eight/KAET, Arizona PBS, Arizona Public Media, Tempe 11 and Tempe's YouTube channel.
Obadiah Parker headlines the night. Driven by a popular YouTube video of a live performance, Parker's cover of "Hey Ya" became a breakout hit in 2007, topping the iTunes singer-songwriter charts for the year. With the 2008 EP, The Tip Jar, Vol. 1, Parker built a strong Internet following with soulful vocals and his ability to cover a variety of tunes with a unique and singular style. In 2011, Parker released his first full length original material in The Siren and The Saint.
