Full Sail University Adds Recording Artist Mat Kearney To 4th Annual Hall of Fame Concert Schedule
Full Sail University has just announced the addition of Universal Republic Records recording artist, Mat Kearney (www.matkearney.com) to the 4th Annual Hall of Fame week celebration. Kearney will perform live in concert at the Full Sail Live venue at 8pm EST on Saturday, February 16. This free concert is open to the public and admission is on a first-come, first-served basis.
As a Nashville-based singer/songwriter, Kearney has released three full-length studio albums, has had four singles in the Billboard Top 20, and has toured with artists including John Mayer, Keane, and The Fray. The songs off his latest album, 2011’s Young Love, are a slight departure from his two earlier releases with a mix of radio-friendly rock and a bit of a reggae and hip-hop influence.
The Hall of Fame week concert schedule will kick-off with a special Valentine’s Day free public concert at 8pm EST on Thursday, February 14 by singer/songwriter and Vanguard Records artist, Marc Broussard (www.marcbroussard.com/). The concert will be held in the university’s on-campus state-of-the-art performance venue, Full Sail Live, with admission provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Full Sail’s 4th Annual Hall of Fame Week is sponsored by Sony Electronics’ Professional Solutions of America, with additional sponsors Adobe, Avid, CDW, ESPN, Murphy Lighting, Sennheiser Electronic Corporation, and WWE.
