The eclectic lineup for KISS 106.1 FM’s Jingle Ball includes Mary Lambert (shown here), Lindsey Stirling, Fences, Jake Miller, Rixton and Magic! But Lambert will be the belle of this ball, particularly now that Fall Out Boy, originally scheduled for the show, has canceled.
Featured last Sunday at the 2014 American Music Awards, Lambert is the Seattle-based singer-songwriter and spoken-word artist who recorded the track “Same Love” (a gay-rights anthem) with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on the hit album “The Heist,” voted best rap album at this year’s Grammy Awards. The emotionally charged song reflects Lambert’s experiences growing up lesbian in an abusive household.
Last year, she released her debut single, “She Keeps Me Warm,” sampling the chorus she wrote for “Same Love.” Lambert recently released her debut full-length album, the confessional “Heart on My Sleeve,” on Capitol Records.
Violinist, dancer and performance-artist Stirling was featured on season five of “America’s Got Talent.” Indie-rock project Fences features Seattle singer-songwriter Christopher Mansfield, who has also collaborated with Macklemore.
Up-and-coming Florida rapper and songwriter Miller released his debut album, “Us Against Them,” last year. MTV has touted him as “An Artist of Watch.” English pop and R&B quartet Rixton got its start as a YouTube phenomenon. Magic! is a Canadian reggae fusion band that released its debut single, “Rude,” in 2013.
The holiday-themed concert was originally booked at WaMu Theater, but was moved to the smaller Moore. All tickets purchased for the WaMu show will be honored for general-admission seating on the main floor at the Moore.
7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2, Moore Theatre, 1932 Second Ave., Seattle; $22.50-$47.25 (877-784-4849 or stgpresents.org).
