with special guest Emma Charles & Casey McQuillen

Clark Beckham's talent is indisputable, it’s as simple as that. Growing up just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, Clark discovered an undeniable love for music through church and later on as a street performer where his bluesy vocals could be heard throughout the streets of Music City. After graduating from Lee University, the multi-instrumentalist traded in the bustling streets of downtown Nashville for the bright lights of Hollywood. In 2015, Clark received his golden ticket for Season 14 of American Idol where he captivated millions across the globe and was voted the runner-up of the season. Clark’s live performances dominated the top 10 most-viewed videos on American Idol's YouTube channel.
Featuring special guest Emma Charles!
23 year old "glowing folk-pop artist" Ones to Watch Emma Charles is able to mix "effortlessly beautiful vocals" American Songwriter Magazine that "flutter upwards serenely through the loneliness and darkness like a beam of radiant light" LA Weekly with "savvy lyricism and intuitive musicianship offering layers not always seen in contemporary mainstream music" Popmatters.
Hailing from the artistic enclave Westport, Ct, in 2019 Emma graduated with honors from the prestigious Berklee College of Music and immediately began performing nationally headlining and opening for singer-songwriters Howie Day and Tyler Hilton. Now, LA based, Emma is writing, recording and continuing to perform. She returns east regularly to continue her long standing collaboration with producer Doug Schadt (Maggie Rogers, SHAED, Ashe). Says Doug "It's rare as a producer to come across an artist who is completely open to experimentation, while maintaining their vision of what a song is supposed to be. I think the results speak for themselves. Working on Emma's latest material with her was an absolute joy, and I can't wait for what's next."
Over the course of the past year, Emma has released two EP’s: “Connecticut” and “The Way There”, garnering her positive attention in notable press outlets such as Ones To Watch, Ladygunn, and Wonderland Magazine. She is so proud of her releases, and can’t wait to work on and release more music in 2021.
Accompanied by Casey McQuillen!
To say Casey has been busy would be an understatement. Whether touring extensively across the US and Europe, receiving international recognition and press for her anti-bullying concert series The "You Matter" Tour, or gaining a loyal fanbase from the millions who watched her as a powerhouse vocalist on Season 13 of American Idol, Casey has accomplished so much in her short career, and this is only the beginning.
Casey founded The ‘You Matter’ Tour, which was recognized by The UN Foundation and ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’, to use her original songs and life stories to teach students about showing empathy, taking action, and building self-confidence. Over 40,000 students have enjoyed this concert both nationally and abroad.
Casey’s new single ‘In & Out’ was inspired by a long forgotten melody preserved in a voice memo for years, Casey wrote ‘In & Out’ over Zoom during quarantine and because life sometimes plays out like a movie, one of the singer/songwriters Casey most admired as a young writer, Jon McLaughlin, agreed to lend his beautiful, intimate vocal performance to this duet. ‘In & Out’, the first single off Casey’s debut album, truly blends the inspiration of her past and the promise of the future!
In the last two years alone, Casey has toured across the US and Europe performing her new music. In addition to headlining her own sold out shows in New York and Boston, Casey also recently supported Eric Hutchinson, Stephen Kellogg, Kate Voegele, Tyler Hilton and Nick Howard.
Casey has accumulated tens of thousands of followers on social media and millions of views and streams of her music online because her songs are authentic, intimate, and relatable. She is committed to being honest with her fans by sharing her personal struggles and empathizing with theirs. Her music and videos are perfect examples of this: the video for her 2019 single, ‘Beautiful,’ depicts her powerful story of growing up in our beauty-obsessed society, while her song ‘Can A Heart Go Bad?’ confronts the isolation and shame that can accompany mental health issues.
