Jenny Leigh
Jenny Leigh
Jenny Leigh brings an edge to country music with soulful grit, larger than life vocals, and a blend of inspirations derived from rural MD, Baltimore City, Central North Carolina, and

Nashville, TN.

Music has been the red thread through Jenny's life as she grew up performing in school plays, recitals, and musical theatre productions, and continued in college when she joined Elon

University's a cappella group, Twisted Measure. Recently featured in People Magazine, USA Today, and Time, this award-winning group ignited Jenny's passion to combine her love for

singing and writing to pursue a solo career.

Jenny returned to her roots with piano, learned to play guitar and mandolin, and began visiting Nashville frequently after graduation. While working at Baltimore's Under Armour

headquarters in the marketing department, Jenny earned an East Coast following sharing the stage with some of today's biggest acts including: Dierks Bentley, The Eli Young Band, Joe

Nichols, Gloriana, Jana Kramer, Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three, to name a few. She gained the support of Baltimore's industry-award winning country radio station, 93.1 WPOC

opening their Sunday in the Country Festival with the National Anthem multiple times. She performed at the world-renowned Preakness, Baltimore Marathon, and teamed up with Cam

Newton and DJ Araabmuzik to deliver vocals for Under Armour's commercial "Cam's Night Out".

She caught the attention of talent scouts for the reality singing TV show, "The Next" and ended up as a finalist under mentorship of John Rich of Big & Rich. John advised Jenny to move

to Nashville and kick her career into high gear ASAP, which is what she did. She raised 100% of the funds needed to record an EP in music city, and moved to Nashville with co-writers,

Adam Wakefield, and Ryan Sorestad.

Jenny was selected to perform on one of the main stages of CMA Festival her first summer in Nashville as an unsigned artist. She went on to win the Nashville Emerging Star

Songwriting Competition to open for Little Big Town, currently tours as a vocalist with Adam Wakefield, who is the Season 10 runner-up of The Voice, and works behind the scenes on

CMT's show, "Nashville". Jenny has been a guest of WSMV's Channel 4 show "Today in Nashville" where she has performed her songs "Old Oak Tree", "Boots Off", and debuted her

greats and strive to make an impact on this thing we so casually call music." - Jenny Leigh

Hootie and the Blowfish
Seth Cook
Seth Cook
Seth Cook is the complete talent package. He’s a Singer, a Songwriter, a Musician, but most importantly, he’s an Entertainer.

Seth grew up in the small town of Yorktown, Indiana. He began his musical career at the young age of 4, sharing the stage with his parents touring group. His first instrument was the drums, but Seth eventually moved to playing guitar at the age of 15.

The sound of that guitar led Seth to not only learning other recording artists’ songs, but it soon became a passion for writing his own material. Seth already had a publishing deal offer in Nashville before he’d even moved to the city at the age of 20. Shortly after making the move, Seth began writing songs for what would become his first official musical release, a 6 song EP in 2015. Enlisting the help of award winning producer Matt McClure (Lee Brice, Kellie Pickler, Dylan Scott), Seth found someone who listened to the young artist’s vision, allowing him to explore his creative freedom. Cook’s guitar work can be heard on all 6 tracks of the EP.

Seth has already logged countless hours on the stage headlining venues throughout the Midwest. Says Seth: “I love playing shows and making new friends. My first love is the stage. It’s in my blood, my DNA. It’s my home away from home.”

Seth continues to grow his fan base playing shows from coast to coast. In his young career, Seth has been blessed to open for Lonestar, Rascal Flatts, Montgomery Gentry, Luke Bryan, Rodney Atkins and Vince Gill. He’s played fairs, festivals, theatres and clubs all over the country. One standout moment to Seth: “The moment Vince let me come up and play with him was a dream come true. Vince is a true inspiration to me my entire life, both as a songwriter and a musician.”

Seth concludes: “Country music fans are the best fans in the world! The music I write isn’t just for me, it’s for them. They’re what I think about when I start to write a song. I’m just like them. I grew up a fan of country music too! Now I’m lucky enough to make my own country music, music I hope they love as much as I do!”
Jerry Jacobs
Jerry Jacobs
Country artist and songwriter Jerry Jacobs landed onto Nashville’s music scene in early 2014, and has been making noise in Music City and across the nation ever since. Hailing from the coast of the Carolinas, the Charleston native draws influences from country legends and 90’s rock hit makers alike. “My first musical experience was a Hootie and the Blowfish concert when I was 5,” explains Jacobs. After finding his musical calling as a child, he immediately fell in love with the stage – a love affair that continues to this day and is apparent in his electrifying performances.

Only weeks after graduating from Clemson University, Jacobs scored gigs at some of Nashville’s most famous honky tonks. After putting together a band and breaking in his boots on lower Broadway, Jacobs hit the road to the tune of 250 shows a year. Jacobs and his band are nationally renowned for a high-energy live show that seamlessly drifts across genre lines and feels like a Saturday night dirt road dance down memory lane. It has captivated audiences from coast to coast as Jacobs has headlined shows from New Jersey to San Diego, and almost everywhere in between.

Jacobs’ love of performing is only rivaled by his passion for songwriting. Diving headfirst into Nashville’s iconic songwriting community was intimidating at first. “It was absolutely crazy and incredibly nerve-wracking to sit in a room and work with the writers of my favorite songs growing up,” Jacobs explains. A devotion to well-crafted songs has awarded Jacobs multiple opportunities, including a song placement on a major TV network and interest in his songs from major and up-and-coming artists alike.

Jacobs’ first single ‘Maybe Tonight’ was met with glowing reviews and sparked interest in the young artist’s energetic blend of country and rock. Whiskey Riff comments, “It’s fresh and fun but still has a bit of twang to it.” The overwhelmingly positive response sent Jacobs right back into the studio to work on his full-length record, 'Carolina Tonight'. Jacobs comments, “I love and have lived every song on this record, and I couldn’t be more excited to share them.” The highly anticipated full-length release debuted as the #15 country album on iTunes, and the excitement around Jacobs' young career continues to grow. Jacobs and his band hit the road in support of the release on a national beginning on March 9th, 2017. If ‘Maybe Tonight’ “may be your new favorite song,” Jerry Jacobs might be your favorite new artist. Check out the debut album and catch a live show in a city near you.
