DAN WILSON

Dan Wilson is a singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and occasional cartoonist. He is best known as the lead singer of the band Semisonic, for which he wrote the Grammy-nominated smash “Closing Time” as well as other international hits including “Secret Smile” and “Chemistry.” Prior to that, he was a member of the band Trip Shakespeare, whose long-haired psychedelia influenced a generation of Midwestern bands long after their breakup in the early 90s.


COLIN CAMPBELL

Colin Campbell & The Shackletons are a rock and blues band out of the Twin Cities writing and playing songs rooted in the rich influence of the “Minnesota Sound.” The band at its core consists of Colin Campbell (vocals/guitar), his older brother, Cameron (Bass), and younger brother Evan (Drums). Living a double life as both a knee-buckling indie rock band as well as a stomp-your-foot-through-the-floor blues band, Colin Campbell & The Shackletons have been generating buzz throughout the Twin Cities.
