Wendy Williamson Auditorium

The UAA Concert Board is proud to present Mat Kearney as part of UAA Winterfest. Kearney's music has been featured on "Grey's Anatomy," "The Hills," "Friday Night Lights," "Scrubs," "NCIS" and numerous other television shows. He has toured with John Mayer, Sheryl Crow, Keane and The Fray.

His most recent album, 2011's "Young Love," peaked at number one on the Billboard Top Rock Albums. To continue the evolution of his sound on the album, Kearney incorporated hip-hop grooves into his lyrically charged folk-pop songs. Kearney said of the album, "There's a sense of joy, honesty, vulnerability and wisdom in this record. I've experienced pain, but I still want to feel like that high school kid with butterflies in his stomach who loves life and has hope."

Tickets become available on Friday, Jan. 11, 2013. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door for UAA students; $25 in advance and $30 at the door for the general public. Purchase tickets at UAATix.com or the Student Union Information Desk.
