Twenty-Somethings 2, featuring the music of songwriters Drew Overcash, Blake Pfeil and Zoe Sarnak, will be held Aug. 18 at the Highline Ballroom.

Produced by Krysta Hibbard, the 8 PM concert — which follows a sold-out edition last summer — will feature new music from the songwriters' latest projects.

Performers include two-time Tony Award nominee Robin De Jesus, Ciara Renee, Nic Rouleau, Laura Dreyfuss, Gabe Violett, Emily Afton, Anna Ty Bergman, Damon Daunno, Rachel Gavaletz, Chelsey LeBel and Taylor Noble.

This year's Twenty-Somethings will feature this year's winner of the "Fresh Pens" Contest, Kailey Marshall. Marshall was chosen by a panel of judges that included 2014 Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham, Richard H. Blake, Lauren Pritchard, Kacie Sheik and De Jesus. Her song "Give It Up" will be premiered at the concert.

The band will consist of Bobbie L. Crow III on cello, Micah Burgess on guitar, Andrew Kuusisto on bass and Cody Rahn on percussion.
