Pop-Break Live: Phillip Phillips, Matt Nathanson at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ

The picturesque late afternoon/early evening sky of the July 2 was the perfect backdrop to the acoustic-driven sets of singer/songwriters Matt Nathanson and Phillip Phillips. The duo, who are currently co-headlining a nationwide summer tour, dropped into The Stone Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park, NJ. Both are no stranger to the venue — Phillips opened for O.A.R. a few summers before while Nathanson has been a semi-regular performer at the venue for the past decade.

Pop-Break’s Kim Wessels caught both men in action with the aforementioned amazing skyline behind them.
