Music with Friends

December 16, 2021 8:00 pm PST

Main Stage

Doors Open: 7:00pm

Have you ever wondered who writes songs for Selena Gomez, Shaun Mendez, Demi Lovato, Kelly Clarkson? On any given day there are thousands and thousands of songs being written by songwriters with hopes that an artist will hear it, record it, and turn it into so much more.

At Music With Friends we take todays top songwriters, and give them their own stage. A moment to hear the songs straight from the source. Our intimate acoustic showcase is perfect for date night, or a chill evening out.

Jesse Thomas, who is an acclaimed songwriter herself, hosts and will keep the laughs going all night. Keep an eye out for surprise guests, as the show is known for its jaw on the floor surprises. Past performers like JP Saxe, Noah Cyrus, Lauv, and Charlotte Lawrence all have took the stage unannounced.

This show has sold out for 5 years straight… come see what all the buzz is about!

Please come with a negative test within 72 hours or vax card. <3

He’s been praised as “one of Hollywood’s finest songwriters for a decade” by American Songwriter, P!NK even said that he is “one of the greatest singers and songwriters alive today.”

Sam DeRosa
Sam DeRosa is a multi-platinum artist & songwriter, originally from NY. Sam co-wrote songs like Dixie D’Amelio’s break out single “be happy,” and “broken” by lovelytheband, which holds the record as the longest running song in rock radio history. After appearing on NBC’s Songland, her song “Pill for this” debuted in the top 3 on iTunes global and pop charts, launching the start of her artist career. Sam is excited to play this show! She loves writing with her friends and making new ones. She’s got her EP “The medicine,” available everywhere and has new music ready for the top of 2022.

Jesse Thomas
A songwriter originally from Covington, Kentucky, Jesse has racked up a near billion streams for her contributions to the projects of Martin Garrix and Troye Sivan, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Stapleton, Ben Platt, PTX, Royal & The Serpent, Charlotte Lawrence, Ingrid Michaelson, Ingrid Andress, Wrabel and more! Check out her solo project Thomboi for some wavy pop tunes. She also hosts the evening and can be quite chaotic!

Rozzi takes the stories and secrets typically reserved for conversations among confidants or lovers and turns them into songs. Acclaimed by everyone from Time to Teen Vogue, the San Francisco-born singer and songwriter invites listeners closer than ever on her debut for BMG Records—released in two halves next year. She also penned “Collect My Love” by The Knocks, and “Love Songs” by Daryl Braithwaite, that went gold in Australia.
