Adam Aminé Daniel, best known by his stage name Aminé, is a Grammy-nominated rapper, singer and songwriter from Portland, Oregon. His six-time platinum debut single "Caroline” peaked at No. 11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 2016, and he went on to release four albums, most recently “TwoPointFive.” The video for its lead single "Charmander" was celebrated as one of the best of the year by GQ. Aminé has sold out every international tour on which he's embarked.

In 2020, Tai Verdes skyrocketed from his 9-to-5 job at a Verizon store to Billboard's No. 1 Emerging Artist; his first headline tour sold out in minutes. His debut album “TV” included several viral hits—”Stuck in the Middle" and "A-O-K"—earning nearly over 1 billion streams. Verdes has since performed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “The Today Show,” as well as Lollapalooza and at Madison Square Garden. His most recent singles, "Last Day on Earth" and "sheluvme," precede the release of his next album, “HDTV.”
