Imperial Rooster plays a mix of folk, blues, country, & rock and roll that can only be described as GONZO ROOTS MUSIC.

4:00-5:45pm – The Battlefield

Los Angeles, CA’s The Battlefield mine the American songbook to craft deeply moving, elegantly executed portraits of our shared humanity – embracing the beauty but never shying away from the ugliness. There’s a deep rooted tradition of folk music with messages of protest, praise, love & loss, and on Tipping Point they continue this tradition, struggling through their art to parse out the how’s and why’s of human behavior and it’s consequence to the world we share.

Formed in June of 2013 by three talented singer/songwriters: Matt Ducey, Jenny Weaver and James Addison, The Battlefield speaks to the conflicts in our hearts & minds as well as the daily struggles of modern life. This world is a Battlefield and we’re in it together.

A harmony-filled addition to the halls of American songwriting, Tipping Point is the sound of three unique voices and styles coming together to form one powerful piece of music. Built on a foundation of impeccable songwriting, the record is a timeless, yet undeniably modern, portrait of the human condition.
