Brett Young:

twitter.com/BrettYoungMusic

 

With three independent albums already under his belt, Brett Young is taking his newest batch of songs into the studio with David Hall at the production helm, known for his GRAMMY Award winning work as an engineer, with artists of nearly every genre. And true to form, he’ll be showcasing that intensity and emotion in his recordings, of songs like “Fire” and “Breathe Again.” 

 

Brett has since played venues ranging from House of Blues to Troubadour, and shared the stage with such artists as Mandy Moore, Tyrone Wells, Jason Reeves, Gavin Degraw, Tyler Hilton, Katy Perry, Hoku and many more. Brett recently released his second record, Make Believe and is currently in the studio finishing up his latest album.

 

 

Billy Dawson and Lainey Edwards:

twitter.com/Lainey_Edwards

 

Rising country star Billy Dawson is a multi-talented singer, entertainer, author and writer. He is currently in the studio working with Grammy award winning writer and producer Skidd Mills on a new album to be released in 2014.  Songwriting heavyweight Rivers Rutherford, who penned hits such as When I Get Where I’m Going (Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton), Real Good Man (Tim McGraw), These Are My People (Rodney Atkins) and Stealing Cinderella (Chuck Wicks), is a longtime supporter and mentor for Dawson.

 

Dawson has shared the stage with artists including Lady Antebellum, One Republic, John Hiatt, Loretta Lynn, Merle Haggard, Skillet, Five For Fighting, Colt Ford, Charlie Louvin and Cross Canadian Ragweed. 

 

Most recently Billy wrote and performed “Born to Lead” with an accompanying music video for the Rotary Lombardi Award Ceremony.

 

Lainey:

Moore, Oklahoma native Lainey Edwards is a country music singer/songwriter whose move to Nashville almost nine years ago has resulted in active working relationships with some of the industry’s most accomplished producers, songwriters, music publishers and record executives. Brett Beavers, Lainey’s Grammy-nominated producer, stated “She can write ‘em….and she can really sing ‘em.

 

Barbara Cloyd, songwriter and longtime booking agent for the world famous Bluebird Cafe, says “In Nashville there are a lot of beautiful young women who can sing, but not many who can deliver a song with the passion and intensity, Lainey does.”

 

Ernie Halter:

Halter has released 5 albums, toured 50 states, and seen his popularity swell to more than 510,000 Twitter followers, 12,000 YouTube subscribers, and nearly 10,000 Facebook ‘Likes’. 

In 2011 Justin Bieber covered Ernie Halter’s “Come Home To Me” making international headlines and exposing Halter’s music to a wide new audience. 

Ernie Halter has shared the studio and stage with: Jason Mraz, Lady Antebellum, Neil Young, Colbie Caillat, Sara Barielles, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Eric Hutchinson, Tony Lucca, Allen Stone, Drake Bell, Sister Hazel, and more.

The party doesn’t stop after you cross the Finish Line. Aloe Blacc will headline the Suja Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Finish Line Festival on Sunday, June 1, 2014!

With “Wake Me Up”—the 2013 mega-hit he sang and co-wrote for Swedish DJ Avicii and saw climb to #1 in 22 countries across the globe—Aloe Blacc proved himself a singer/songwriter with an irresistible power to capture the complexities of human emotion.

Now with his third solo album Lift Your Spirit , the rapper-turned-singer pushes further into a folk/soul/pop fusion that’s both undeniably joyful and eye-opening in message. Lift Your Spirit is built on songs that pair Blacc’s poetic yet incisive lyrics with huge hooks and relentless feel-good grooves. Kicking off with “The Man” (a sweetly boastful single that gives a sly nod to Elton John’s “Your Song” and climbed to the top 10 on Billboard’s Digital Songs chart in early 2014), this album reveals both Blacc’s musical adventurousness and graceful grasp of the subtleties at the heart of his folk/soul hybrid. Learn more about Aloe Blacc’s bio and music here!

Juicing is a valuable tool that every runner can use in their hydration plan! Fruits and vegetables are living foods that are rich in water and packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, all which help reduce inflammation caused by exercise. Conventional wisdom says runners should load up on carbs like bread, pasta, bagels, and rice before workouts to sustain their energy levels. These things require energy to break down and digest, which is not ideal for training.

Additionally, many people feel heavy after eating such foods and are sensitive to gluten and/or all grains. Juices are a great alternative if heavy carbohydrate foods do not work for you because they contain natural fruit sugars providing easily digestible carbohydrates. Juices remove the fiber, which helps the body access the energy and nutrition they provide quickly and easily with very little digestive labor. This helps prevent bloating, cramping, and indigestion on runs.

Ready to get juicing? Here are my top Suja picks for the best juices to consume for runners:

1)     Purify: This ruby beet based gem can make it to the finish line. Beets are a great source of nitrate. Nitrate is converted to nitric oxide, which can help lower blood pressure and extend endurance. It has also been shown to reduce oxygen consumption. This is great for long distance running.

2)     Fuel: Soothe your joints with this carrot based tropical blend infused with anti-inflammatory turmeric. Running can beat up your body. We know this, but we love it so how can we help prevent some of the inflammation that occurs in our knees, hips, shoulders, and feet? Incorporating anti-inflammatory power foods like turmeric can do a lot to alleviate exercise-induced muscle damage.

3)     Green Supreme: Oh, kale. How we love thee. This strong dark green is a nutrient powerhouse packed with vitamins and minerals, including iron, which is an important mineral for runners. It is rich in Vitamins C and folate, which are both great immune boosters, an important element when training because exercise decreases immunity for up to 24 hours after. Sip this bright and tangy emerald blend and you will be a kale lover in no time.
