Last night, Main Street Studios presented Acoustic Night featuring Tim Atlas, Haley Heyndericks and Walla Walla’s own Kory Nagler. All proceeds from the night went to the Artist Residency, a new program created by Walla Walla Center for the Arts and Main Street Studios.

“We just want to let [the artists] do what they do best,” said Alisa Gilbert, Vice President of Talent Relations at Main Street Studios, “whatever that may be.”

Singer Tim Atlas is Main Street Studio’s first resident artist. From San Jose, Calif Atlas became intrigued by the moving and romanticized songwriting of Bon Iver and the blues guitar playing of John Mayer. His rising success resulted in a record collaboration with producer Jesse Barrera in 2013. As well as a singer, Atlas is also a producer.

As a part of the Artist Residency, Atlas worked with other musicians around the Walla Walla area to fine tune their work. Currently, Atlas is working on his new album.

Acoustic Night is one of the many events that Main Street Studios puts on throughout the year.
