Triston Marez with Jon Wood

July 22 7:00 pm PDT

Main Stage

Doors Open: 6:30 pm


Country singer Triston Marez’s sound isn’t just centered around the crying steel or prominent fiddles that often go hand in hand with the rolling plains or legendary dancehalls that come to mind when thinking about country music — they’re part of a way of life for the 25-year-old. Marez’s debut EP, That Was All Me, set to release Jan. 25, showcases Marez’s rich vocals telling tales of long nights, former flames and new love with a relatable honesty.

On the EP, Marez’s influences — Chris LeDoux, Aaron Watson and Cody Johnson — weave throughout a collection of pure country music. In the EP’s title track, “That Was All Me,” a raucous night can be blamed on the jukebox, neons buzzing and one too many whiskeys, but insists any feelings felt were true. “Where Rivers Are Red, Cowboys Are Blue” hearkens back to the heyday of cowboy songs with an ode to a former flame, while “Dizzy” features the other side of the coin and a fledgling love story found on the dancehall floor. “Reservations For Two” is a romantic night set in the great outdoors, and “Here’s To The Weekend” offers an appreciation for a few cold beers with good friends while searching for a reprieve from the daily grind.

A Houston native, Marez’s sound isn’t just centered around country music, it’s weaved through his entire 24 years. As a member of a musical family from Oklahoma known for their bluegrass and fiddle talents, Marez started playing guitar at age six and his first live performance was a Buck Owens song in the first grade talent show. Marez worked as a ranch hand and even rode bulls as a hobby for years to support his music career. He also won the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo’s talent competition in 2014.


Jon Wood

Jon Wood was born just outside of Nashville in Springfield, Tennessee in 1997. His father, Steven Wood, came to Nashville to pursue his dream in the music business in 1991, working for Calvary Records; later becoming an artist, playing festivals, churches, and anywhere that would have him. When Jon was two years old his family decided to move from Nashville eventually settling in Wake Forest, North Carolina.

North Carolina would be where Jon learned about his love for music at an early age. His father built a recording studio in their home where, along with Jon’s two brothers and mom, they all came together and recorded. They put together a family band, played concerts, and even recorded a small album.

After high school Jon took different odd jobs before realizing his main passion was music. At the age of 21, Jon Wood left his small town and chased his neon dreams to Nashville.

Only after living there for five months songwriter and producer, Justin Weaver, reached out to Jon via Instagram. They started writing early 2019 and by June 14, 2019 they released Jon’s debut EP with all of the songs co-written by Wood, Weaver, and other Nashville writers. Following the release of a follow up EP in late 2019, Jon set his sights on writing and recording over 2020 which resulted in a number of single releases in 2021. Currently Jon is writing and recording an album for release in late 2022.
