Beth Brown
Beth Brown
Australian born indie-pop songstress Beth Brown is the newest female signing to the Gretsch Guitar USA Family and is an Official Showcase Artist at SXSW Festival 2017, trailblazing pathways to the U.S.

Her debut album “Dream Coat” will be released in 2017, leading with debut single “Easy” followed by an Australian Tour early January 2017. Partnering with highly celebrated U.S. producer Brad Jones, Brown joins a list of critically acclaimed Australian artists including Missy Higgins and Butterfly Boucher.

Relocating to Nashville in 2015, Brown shares that “[Nashville] has been the experience of a lifetime, and has lived up to its reputation as Music City. I’ve never felt so challenged and alive. It's exactly what I wanted. Writing with Butterfly Boucher on this single was an absolute dream”.

Brown made her debut US appearance at Americana Fest 2015, playing Nashville's prestigious Blue Bird Café and becoming the first female Australian artist to be endorsed by The Gretsch Company, welcomed by owner Fred Gretsch.

Co-writing with greats such as Shannon Sanders and Jerry Sally has launched Beth into the creative circles that have penned for mega-recording artists John Legend, Chris Stapleton, Celine Dion and India Arie.
James Droll
James Droll
Bad Luck, a five-track EP, is James Droll’s debut solo project. This collection of soul-searching songs explores the heart after the fall of a relationship, something that connects anyone who listens. The dark pop tunes are filled with stunning lyrics, tight harmonies, and swelling chords that reach right into the heart and twist with the sweetest of pain.

Recounting sleepless nights praying for even the shortest rest, feeling for the warm body and finding only an empty space in the bed, and finally beginning the healing that does eventually come, Bad Luck is all of us. Droll’s voice whispers, soars, devastates, and soothes. And in the end, we learn with him that luck, like life, is a balance. With the bad comes the good, and rebuilding is not only possible—it’s inevitable.

Produced by Joshua Niles (Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell, Barenaked Ladies), Bad Luck will be released on January 13, 2017. A Friday, of course.
Reign

Anna Mae
Anna Mae
Based in Nashville, Anna Mae is an alt-pop artist/songwriter who recently signed with Prescription Songs. She has a unique voice which has led to numerous placements for prime time major network promos including the brand new trailer for “A Bad Moms Christmas,” The Voice (NBC), For The People (ABC/Shondaland), and the trailer for HBO's movie "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks." Her debut pop single titled “Call Girl,” was released in August. She’s currently in the process of releasing a debut EP which is expected for early 2018.
Daniella Mason
Daniella Mason
Daniella Mason might be known for her pop songwriting sensibilities, but don't let that fool you. Hailed by The Guardian as "a serious musician with a distinctly pop edge," the indie songstress' music is marked by an undeniable streak of self-awareness that even the most savvy of audiophiles can enjoy.

Mason's dreamy single "Shade of You" landed a coveted spot on iTunes' front page, topping the platform's "What's Hot" section. The vibey, electro-pop track, situated among singles from alt/indie heavy hitters the likes of Betty Who, Bleachers, and Paloma Faith, was the only self-released song to make the honorable lineup.

"True talent always rises to the top," contributor Bradley Stern (SpinMedia blog Idolator) wrote. "Case in point? Daniella Mason... It's an unassuming, catchy slice of mature pop— one that positions Daniella as one of the newest and most exciting ones to watch this year."
Kyle Reynolds
Kyle Reynolds
Rising singer/songwriter and California native Kyle Reynolds is already making a name for himself in the pop world. Having landed several song placements on major network television and radio, Reynolds is poised to be the next breakout artist of his generation. He began to pursue his passion for music by teaching himself piano and guitar as a productive healthy and outlet to bounce back from troubled adolescence. Now, after packing up and moving cross country to Nashville, TN, the 24-year-old has even more inspiration to pour out through songwriting. Mixing influences as wide ranging as Andy Grammar and One Republic to Chance the Rapper and Jon Bellion, Kyle Reynolds hopes to introduce a fresh new pop sound all his own. Music that anyone can connect with and feel at home. Music that speaks the truth.
LUKR
LUKR
Born in PA then raised on a Christmas tree farm in Maryland, self-taught artist Lukr began playing music as a kid beginning on an $80 piano. After forming and fronting his first band Farewell Flight at 17, he led them on dozens of successful DIY coast-to-coast tours in the US, playing hundreds of shows before relocating to Nashville, TN.

Working behind-the-scenes with artists from LA, NY, and abroad, he co-wrote songs that have appeared in TV shows like Scream, Hart of Dixie, Longmire, as well as in worldwide television ads. In 2016, he independently made his solo debut with the cinematic Fucked Up Summer. Finding its way to fans from around the globe, the song became a Spotify viral hit and passed a million streams in just 12 weeks. In August, he followed up with Scarecrow, a sophomore single that has since broken 3 million spins.

Self-styled as "neon grunge pop", Lukr's uniquely textured vocal and instantly nostalgic lyrics weave among organic instruments and shimmering sample-based pop tracks. The visually compelling live presentation features Lukr leading multiple co-creators, playing a what looks like creative musical chairs as they trade on and off with synths, guitars, trap sets and drum machines. Having released both a video for Scarecrow and a remix for Fucked Up Summer in the fall, he rounded out the year with a cover of a favorite song, Counting Crows’ A Long December. 2017 finds Lukr preparing to release a deluge of music with a series of mixtapes.
