Since their inception in early 2000, ACRES has quickly emerged as a strong voice on the southeastern music scene. As one of Atlanta, GA's premier pop/rock talents, ACRES has shared the stage with renowned acts such as Collective Soul, Jason Mraz, Train, Tantric, Alice Peacock, Oleander, Josh Joplin, Rusted Root, Drivin N' Cryin, and Arrested Development. ACRES combines powerful vocals, gritty guitars, a tight rhythm section, and strong story lines to capture the attention of fans and music critics alike. This was evident when they won four readers choice awards in Atlanta's premiere entertainment magazine Creative Loafing's 'best of Atlanta 2002' issue, including best overall band, best rock band, best vocalist (Tim Acres), and best songwriter (Tim Acres). Their January 2002 independent release 'Pet Rocks' received critical acclaim and nationwide radio exposure. ACRES received airplay on 35 commercial stations across the country, including daytime BDS airplay on WPLJ in New York (nationally ranked #1 market), KIIS in Los Angeles (nationally ranked #2 market), and 14 other BDS stations. Soon after hitting the airwaves, ACRES' single 'One Way Believe' responded immediately with station programmers, and shot into the top ten most requested on Panama City Florida's Hot107.9, a nearly unheard of feat for an unsigned band. ACRES has played for tens of thousands of enthusiastic music fans at festivals, colleges, clubs, and music conference showcases in the south (including Music Midtown, Dogwood Festival, Coca-Cola's On the Bricks, Atlantis Music Conference in Atlanta, the U.S. Army) and they continue to draw large audiences with their explosive live show. In the words of the Kansas Program Director for KJCK, 'I love these guys and they are going to be huge. And if not, there is something wrong with the world.'
