KACS Family Day Concert Series
Opening the KACS Family Day concert line-up is Apollo LTD bringing alternative-pop anthems that blur the horizon between organic music and electronic soundscapes. Their cinematic mix of deep-seated grooves, and larger-than-life hooks that target the head as well as the heart. Named after the NASA program that sent the world's first astronauts to the Moon, band-mates Jordan Phillips and Adam Stark launched Apollo LTD in 2015. Credits include their first Top 40 hit - the electro-pop single "Gold," and racking up a Dove Awards nomination for Best Rock Album. Apollo LTD followed with Nothing is Ordinary. Everything is Beautiful, created during the strange months in isolation due to the pandemic. A bombastic, uplifting pop album about resilience and resolve, Nothing is Ordinary. Everything is Beautiful reframes the unique obstacles of modern-day life as reasons to come together rather than pull apart. Apollo LTD bring wide-armed, Technicolor music, built to move, punctuated by messages packing a powerful a punch, and sing-along choruses that push each track skyward.

The band Unspoken is coming back to the SW WA Fair with a new hope-filled sound, and fresh off the release of their latest album “Reason (June 21st).” Lead singer Chad Mattson says of the pandemic, “Someone once told me that great songs come out of hard times.” The band has struggled through the pandemic and their own personal and family issues to return to the stage with songs born out of the experience.
After 15-years on tour, with three previous albums, and multiple chart-making songs, their latest album fuses their classic soulful pop sound with gospel influences. Mattson says, “The roots of soul music and gospel music are tribulation. It’s trials, it’s desperation. That’s why we all connect to music in some way, shape or form.” And those are exactly the themes, ideas and updated sound. Unspoken’s “Reason” released June 21st, and they’re bringing their new songs along with hits and favorites from the last 15-years to the SW Washington KACS Family Day stage.

Land of Color
Land of Color, singer-songwriters Gary Rea and Thomas Ewing met in the mountains of Montana in 2015. They were both solo artists in their own right but they feel like they were brought together to create something unique, and greater than the sum of the parts. Gary was born and raised in South Africa and Thomas is from Colorado. Their different cultural and musical backgrounds create a unique blend of African rhythms, sing-able melodies and tight harmonies. They have a bit of a throwback to folksy melodies of another time, and the catchy rhythms and lyrics of today, blending with international flavorings. The guys talk about how the band birthed out of community and family gatherings, and in the early days they would grab their guitars and start writing songs. “The songs came quickly and easily” says Thomas. In 2016 they recorded an album with songs written under the name “HOLY MNTN,” and in a short while they were getting invites from all over the country for them to perform their music. Now rebranded “Land of Color” as Provident Music artists they’ve remained on the Contemporary Christian Music charts, and on tour with songs like “Collide,” “Give It All Back,” “Come On Down,” and “Morning Song.”
