The Complete Winter Jam 2014 Wrap-Up!

105.9 KLAZ was your hookup with tickets for the Winter Jam 2014 tour stop in Little Rock on February 28th and Amber had the scoop on the artists on the Winter Jam 2014 tour. Check out Amber's video look behind the scenes the night of the show.



We also got a bunch of photos hanging out at the arena.

Here are a couple of interviews from artists appearing on the bill.

Thousand Foot Krutch is a Canadian Christian rock band formed in 1995. They have released eight albums, most recently The End Is Where We Begin in 2012. They have also released one live album and two remix albums. Singer Trevor McNevan and drummer Steve Augustine are also members of their own side project band called FM Static and Joel Bruyere started his own solo project called "The Drawing Room" in 2009. The band has sold over a half a million albums as of October 26, 2007.*

Amber had a chance to catch up with lead singer McNevan while the band was between cities on the Winter Jam 2014 tour. They chatted about musical influences, the influence of their music on fans and even how they came up with the theme for a recent video.


 

Lecrae is an American Christian hip hop artist, celebrityentrepreneur, and record producer. He is the president, co-owner and co-founder of the independent record label Reach Records, and the co-founder and president of the non-profit organization ReachLife Ministries. To date, he has released seven studio albums and two mixtapes as a solo artist, and has released three studio albums, a remix album, and one studio album as the leader of the rap group 116 Clique. He produced much of his earlier material along with other early Reach Records releases.*

This is the first time that Hip Hop has been a part of the Winter Jam tour and Amber asked Lecrae about how audiences have reacted to his set. They also talked about his upcoming projects and even his choice of footwear.

 

Tenth Avenue North takes its name from an east-west road in Palm Beach County. The group was formed while members attended Palm Beach Atlantic University. It features Mike Donehey on vocals and acoustic guitar, Jeff Owen on electric guitar and backup vocals, Ruben Juarez III on bass guitar and backup vocals, Jason Jamison on drums and Brendon Shirley on keyboard. The band has released three studio albums.

Amber caught up with Jeff Owen between Winter Jam 2014 tour stops and talked about being on the road with family and why he enjoys the crowds at the shows.



Colton Dixon originally auditioned in the tenth season of American Idol, along with his sister Schyler. Dixon returned in season 11, but he did not plan to audition. On February 23, 2012, Dixon was placed in the season 11 Top 25. His elimination was considered a big surprise. Colton's debut album "A Messenger" was released January 29 2013 Sparrow Records. and re-released the album on January 7, 2014. It has also been announced that he plans on releasing his second album in the summer of 2014.

Dixon talked with Amber about his experiences with Idol, his favorite moments and cities on the tour and his Little Rock connection.
