Corey Leiter
Corey Leiter
Nashville based, 24-year-old singer-songwriter Corey Leiter is fascinated by the power of a song. Especially the feeling of raw emotion behind a guitar lick or melody, or the way a lyric can make you rethink. Corey recognizes this and is constantly exploring its possibilities. Corey has always been known for his laid-back demeanor, his ability to listen and to soak in his surroundings, which has always made him someone to confide in. His music is a reflection of his personality, in that it’s characterized by smooth and melodic instrumentation, a diverse range of influences, and thoughtful lyrics that aim to soothe the troubled soul. Corey is greatly inspired by the moving songwriting of John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Jim James. Writers that push the boundaries of a song and turn it into something much more meaningful. He hopes that his music can someday become a tool to better understand the true meaning of love and the complex human condition, and to just make people feel good.

After only a year of pursuing music at full go, Corey has become a prolific writer and has released an EP, and a full-length LP, with more music on the way. "August Blanket," Corey's most recent project and debut, is a reflection on heartbreak and longing, the ills of American society, and his spiritual discoveries via meditation.

Guthrie Brown
Guthrie Brown
Guthrie Brown a Nashville transplant by way of "old Montana" began playing the guitar at age six. By the age of seventeen, he journeyed to Nashville to pursue the dream of being a professional songwriter, recording & performing artist. After settling in Music City, he recorded and produced his first self-titled EP, which got the attention of Nashville's premiere independent radio station, WRLT Lightning 100. Capitalizing on the initial success of his debut EP, Guthrie recorded and released his second EP "Spirit of the Elk" with producer Stuart Mathis (The Wallflowers, Lucinda Williams). Following his second release, he recruited his longtime friends and musicians John Ogelby (drums), Will Honaker (bass, keys) and John McNally (guitar) to join the band. Their musical pairing has since been compared to something as strong and pure as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Since the release of "Spirit of the Elk", Guthrie and his band of brothers, have continued their regiment of non-stop touring including coveted spots opening for Jonny Lang, Willie Nelson, Robert Randolf, and Bears Den and festivals such as Gasparilla, and CMJ Fest, just to name a few. In the summer of 2016, Guthrie signed his first publishing deal with BMG. He will spend the second half of the year touring and recording with multi Grammy Award winning producer, Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones, Tom waits, Moon Taxi, Of Monsters and Men, James Bay).
