Rising talent to perform on campus

Tyrone Wells will perform a concert on Geneva College's campus on Wednesday, February 25.BEAVER FALLS, Pa. – California-based singer-songwriter Tyrone Wells will bring his pop-based folk music to the John H. White Chapel of Geneva College on Wednesday, Feb. 25. Opening acts are Keaton Simons and Pittsburgh artist Joy Ike.

After releasing three albums independently, Wells signed to Universal Records and recorded his fourth full-length album, the recently released Remain. Utilizing a more full-band approach for Remain, Wells’s songs still showcase the personal depth and sonic intimacy that he became known for while playing acoustic shows in Orange County, California. For more information on Wells, visit his web site at http://www.tyronewells.com.

Keaton Simons is touring in support of his forthcoming CBS Records debut, Can You Hear Me. A veteran of the music industry, Simons blends a myriad of musical genres — from jazz to hip hop to bluegrass — to form his own adventurous sound. Visit Simons’s web site at http://www.keatonsimons.com.

Pittsburgh native Joy Ike will also perform. Rooted in the neo-soul tradition, Ike has a smooth, arresting voice that she showcased on her recent release Good Morning. Check out Ike at http://www.myspace.com/joyike.

Doors open at 7 p.m., and the concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the event are $3 in advance for people with Geneva IDs, $5 at the door for people with Geneva IDs, and $10 at the door for everyone else.
