Sabrina Carpenter has enchanted an audience of millions as a singer, songwriter, actress, designer, and style icon. On-screen, she has generated mega-fandom throughout television and film, ranging from her central role on the Disney Channel smash Girls Meets World to critically acclaimed independent fare such as The Hate U Give. In her music, she delivered one anthem after another on stage and in the studio, earning multiple gold certifications, and performing to sold out crowds far and wide.
Sabrina’s current film and television credits span a wide array of diverse projects from Orange is the New Black to NETFLIX’s Tall Girl and her first leading role in the 2019 movie The Short History of the Long Road, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival to rave reviews. Currently, she is leading the cast of NETFLIX’s movie Work It and is also serving as an executive producer. Meanwhile, her growing musical catalog encompasses a pair of gold singles – “Thumbs” and “Why” – and the albums Singular: Act 1 & Singular: Act II. Of her music, TIME wrote “she’s one to watch as she grows into her musical identity,” and V added “With two successful pop albums and a hard-hitting social commentary under her belt, Carpenter’s career has matured faster than many of her Disney-bred pre-decessors.”
Sabrina also embraced a foothold at the forefront of fashion with blog-worthy looks and by designing her own tour merch. Much to the adoration of her 17.9 million-plus Instagram followers, Sabrina Carpenter emerges as the ultimate 21st century leading lady on screen, in your social feed and on your stereo.
Incubus – Brandon Boyd (Vocal), Mike Einziger (Guitar), Jose Pasillas II (Drums), Chris Kilmore (Keyboard/DJ), and Ben Kenney (Bass) – have sold over 23 million albums landing four Top 5 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 and one #1 album. The band saw global success across eight studio albums having achieved RIAA gold, platinum and multi-platinum success along with four singles hitting #1 on the Billboard Alternative Song chart, including “Drive,” “Megalomaniac,” “Anna Molly,” and “Love Hurts.” The band will be hitting the road to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their platinum selling album Make Yourself. The Grammy-nominated band will take the 20 Years of Make Yourself & Beyond tour to 39 cities across the country, playing songs from that era as well as other songs spanning their career. Special guests Dub Trio, Wild Belle and Le Butcherettes will join on select dates. The tour will begin on Friday, September 13 at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO and will travel across cities such as Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, and others before concluding Saturday, December 7 at the House of Blues Myrtle Beach.
