About This EventPlease join PSW as we welcome Christian Lopez and his full band back to the PSW stage.
Rolling Stone says.. "as popularity in Americana rises, Christian Lopez can connect the dots for many young listeners..” Christian Lopez is not merely riding the wave of Americana Music, the West Virginia native, is bending it to its knees. With the will of his voice and the stomp of a steady beat, Christian Lopez is pioneering his own brand of Alt. Folk Country Rock. Like a young Whitman, Lopez translates the iconic America before him into rousing romps and searing serenades employing crisp and thoughtful imagery and storytelling. Lopez recorded his debut album, produced by Americana super-producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton) when he was just 18. Rolling Stone even coined him a "Best Of" at AmericanaFest, 2 years in a row. Followed up by “Red Arrow” in 2017, produced by Marshall Altman. But on his new album The Other Side, Lopez transcends all of those hot-shot titles to emerge a well-rounded and experienced artist.

Conor & the Wild Hunt
Conor & The Wild Hunt animates soulful original songs with fresh perspectives on Americana, Folk, and pop traditions. They encompass a wide dynamic range, from contemplative cinematic ballads to anthemic explosive peaks, with story-weaving lyrics, artful and driving instrumentation, impassioned duets, blooming three part harmonies, and a compelling stage presence. The band consists of three professional and committed multi-instrumentalist musicians working together to create immersive musical experiences.
Conor Brendan, 26, is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter and composer/arranger in folk pop, Americana, and adjacent generes. He has been a recording artist for over a decade, with over 80 songs primarily consisting of his original music. In 2020, Conor Brendan won first prize for two songs in the Mid Atlantic Song Contest; 'Ghosts' (Adult Contemporary) and 'You're Not Alone' (Americana). He also won an Emergentseed Microgrant for a stripped down performance of unreleased song, 'Sometimes I Forget'. Conor recently signed a music licensing deal with InStyle Music to license original songs in Films, TV, and commercials.
Conor has performed at major venues such as Mauch Chunk Opera House, World Café Live, Rams Head Live, Rams Head On Stage, The 8x10, Gordon Center Theater, Metro Gallery, Mercury Lounge, Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, Oregon Ridge Amphitheater, The Cabooze, and the Altamont Theater, among many others, including Boulder Theatre with Trevor Hall, Wookiefoot, Earth Guardians, and Tubby Love. Conor is also an activist and a water protector who spent a month on the front lines of Standing Rock. During this time, he performed in multiple concerts to support the Sioux Nation, solo and accompanying One Tribe and Peter Yarrow.
As a child, Brendan's first dreamed of directing films, which makes it all the more satisfying now that he is co-directing a narrative short film set to four of his original songs. [See behind the scenes footage on the 'Film' tab!]
