William Tyler is a vertiable visionary and deeply connected example of a modern folk songwriter who pays suitable homage to his roots. Aside from all of that, he's one of the best guitarists we've ever heard. Through tying in both personal experiences to those of his family and friends, Tyler's riffs and song compositions serve to transcend the traditional structures of americana lore.
We couldn't be more excited for his set up on the mountain, as his tone perfectly suits our own. William is sure to be a crowd favorite this year, both from his performance and incredibly personable demeanor off the stage.

Zeb has been a DIO regular for years now, making friends and fans all over the central coast of California and beyond. He has one of the spunkiest energies you've ever seen on stage, with a sound to match. Zeb's energy is in full force as a performer, and arguably even more so when he's not behind a mic stand. His sister Zara sings with him often, and they're a duo that packs a mighty punch of sibling semblance.
We're mighty ready to have Zeb & Co. back at DIO this year. Check out one of their original, full piece anthems in the link below:
Hailing from North of the Golden Gate in Point Reyes National Sea Shore, Salt Suns create a sound that is intricately crafted, yet refreshingly understated. Rooted in American folk and rock; Guitar, bass, and drums weave nuanced harmonies to create a subtle, dark, and honest sound born from beneath the grey stratus and green hills of coastal California.
Founding members Dylan Flynn and Isaiah Mead met and began making music in the mountains of North Carolina where the strong traditional Old-Time music overlaps with the modern sounds of Asheville’s indie scene. After Dylan and Isaiah returned to their native west coast, what began as a folk duo grew in size and sound, adding Ryan Hett on electric bass (Someone Company, Jeff Manson Band).
Salt Suns’ first full-length album will be released the spring of 2018. Their 2016 EP is available atwww.saltsuns.bandcamp.com. Scope their submission to NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series for 2018 in the link below:
