Chappell Roan, the performing name of Kayleigh Rose, has a powerful voice that belies her 19 years.
Hailing from Willard, Missouri, Chappell Roan signed to Atlantic Records a couple of years ago. She released her debut EP, School Nights, on Sept. 22, and then she stopped at the Lincoln Theatre on tour with Vance Joy and Amy Shark on Oct. 19. (Read our Parklife DC review of Vance Joy.)

Vance Joy, the stage name for Australian James Gabriel Keogh, plays the type of music that feels immediately recognizable, like comfort food for your heart. Acoustic-based, many of the songs on 2015’s Dream Your Life Away have a Dylanesque quality that is matched with a powerful voice.
