JERSEY CITY, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/14 -- Fresh off her recent Hollywood Music in Media Award (HMMA) nomination for her popular Adult Contemporary single "Close To You," New Jersey singer/songwriter Evie Archer (www.eviearcher.com) is set to headline at the QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning (http://www.balloonfestival.com/) at Solberg Airport in Readington Township, N.J. on Sunday, July 27.
Archer's 45-minute set on the Main Entertainment Stage will begin at 5:45 p.m. Her performance is part of an all-star weekend entertainment lineup that includes all-star artists from several generations, including Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, America, 3 Doors Down and Hot Chelle Rae. Archer's participation in the festival is appropriate because she grew up (as Melissa Rosenberg) in Readington Township, where the event is taking place.
Archer broke through the Adult Contemporary (A/C) music charts this year with her hit single "Close To You". The track was in the top 30 on both the Mediabase and BDS A/C charts, and Archer was recognized by both as the #1 most active new independent A/C artist.
Archer's debut album, Life in Sand, was recently released and is available on ITunes, CD Baby, and Amazon. The Los Angeles Examiner gave it a rave review, noting that, "Archer pours her heart out and you can hear it in the lyrics, the aching tone in her vocals, and in the emotional dynamic of each song." The album was introduced by Archer to a packed house at a CD release and industry showcase party at The Cutting Room in New York City.
Archer made her radio debut last holiday season with "On Christmas Day," which played on Sirius XM (as well as other radio stations) and all Macy's stores throughout the country. It was also the basis for a moving YouTube video by Full Circle Home, a military spouse support organization.
