Toad the Wet Sprocket frontman Glen Phillips has had quite the journey from his first band’s success in the early ’90s when he was a teenager, to now touring with the group as it celebrates the upcoming 25th anniversary of its biggest album, fear, and preparing to release his new solo offering, Swallowed by the New.

Exploring themes of transition on his new album Swallowed by the New (2016), Phillips pares his folk-tinged music down to its emotional core, concentrating on the simple truths of love and relationships.

Opening Artist

AMBER RUBARTH has become a fixture in New York's burgeoning indie scene, named #1 Best of NYC Songwriter by Deli Magazine last year and NPR's Mountain Stage New Song Contest grand prize winner.

Her fourth album A Common Case of Disappearing produced by Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Norah Jones) further roots her as her own artist by highlighting raw, vulnerable songwriting against a driving band. The album debuted at #13 on iTunes Songwriter charts and features duets with Jason Reeves and Jason Mraz.
