The first-ever showcase for worldwide superstar Kygo's Palm Tree Records, a joint venture with Sony Music Entertainment, will take place on August 27 at Live Lounge. Frank Walker, Forester, Haywood, and Petey Martin, all signed to Palm Tree Records, will play at Kygo's showcase. Frank Walker, a Toronto-based DJ/Producer, has captivated fans all over the world with club-ready collaborations like “Like Gold” with Loud Luxury and Stephen Puth. Los Angeles-based indie electronic duo Forester has already left their mark on the scene, fusing acoustic instruments with electronic components to take the listener to vast open spaces, allowing for both introspection and the need to dance.
“I’m excited for my artists to have the opportunity to show the world what they’re capable of.” -Kygo
