Tennessee-based artist Briston Maroney performed his indie-rock songs to a sold-out crowd at San Francisco’s famed theatre known as The Fillmore on Saturday, March 16th. Born and raised in Knoxville, TN, Briston Maroney initially tried to reach fame via American Idol, where his TV-competition journey ended at the Hollywood phase in 2014 when he was just shy of 15 years old. The singer would not let this television show crush his dreams as the artist showed his resilience and continued with his musical craft doing more shows and competitions. Briston also performed in bluegrass band Subtle Clutch around Knoxville before studying music in college. As proof of his progress, Maroney has since opened for bands like Mt. Joy and Wallows and has been featured on a playlist curated by Taylor Swift. On Saturday night, the 26-year-old performed hits such as “Small Talk” and GOLD-certified “Freakin’ Out on the Interstate” to the cheering and dancing audience. With funky and unique stage decor, genuine enthusiasm, and a high energy performance, Maroney rocked out, dancing around stage. “You never know how you’re gonna feel when you come to play in a city you’re not from,” Maroney said, “but it’s been a beautiful day. Thank you”.Briston has a few more tour dates scheduled for 2024, including the Osheaga Festival in Montreal this August so check him out when he comes to your area.
