2024 Line-Up (Jan. 7 update)

We are honored to announce our 2024 #CCSongwritersFestival HEADLINER as Tony Scalzo, a songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist for the Austin, TX based rock band, Fastball. The band formed in 1994, and after playing around Austin and throughout the southwest, they were signed to Hollywood Records. In 1998, Fastball were nominated for two Grammy awards, after their platinum-selling album, “All The Pain Money Can Buy,” put them in the international spotlight.

Songs by Tony include “The Way,” “You’re An Ocean” and “Out Of My Head,” which was interpolated for use in the Machine Gun Kelly/Camila Cabello smash hit, Bad Things in 2017. In 2023, Fastball’s version of “Out Of My Head” was used in the popular TV show, Ted Lasso.

Throughout their long career, the band has been constantly working and making records. They have released a new live album this fall, Smashed Hits: Live from the Saxon Pub, on Sunset Blvd. Records.

This year Fastball will celebrate 30 years as a band by releasing a new studio album, produced by David Garza and John Fields.
