ST. GEORGE – Three Utah contestants who made it past the battle rounds of the popular national TV talent show “The Voice” will head out on a summer concert tour sponsored by Refinement Records, a new artist development company based in Draper.
The artists, Ryan Innes, Amy Whitcomb and Midas Whale, will make stops in Safford, Ariz. on Thursday, Provo on Friday, Rexburg, Idaho on June 15 and then on to St. George on June 28. The concert will be held at 7 p.m. Cox Auditorium on the Dixie State University campus, featuring Atlantic Records band Fictionist.
Tickets are available by calling the DSU Box Office at 435-652-7800 or online. Premium seats cost $20, other seats cost $15 each.
Adam Reader, president and founder of Refinement Records, said the tour idea was hatched with Sammy Schultz, vice president of artist management, to bring these talented musicians closer to their fan base and catch the excitement the three created during national broadcasts of “The Voice.”
“We have remarkable musical talent in Utah that is getting national recognition,” Reader said.
“To see three contestants from the state compete so well with others across the country on ‘The Voice’ is just another acknowledgment that there’s something very special here. I believe that Utah has the ability to be what Seattle was in the early 90s,” he said, “a musical haven for great acts that will have a national following.”
This concert is sponsored by Dixie Ophthalmic Specialist at Zion Eye Institute, Blake Bench of First Colony Mortgage, St. George News | STGnews.com, netQuest Social Media Consulting and DSU.
