Hadley Kennary
Hadley Kennary
Hadley Kennary is a singer-songwriter whose music is a folk/pop blend of heartfelt, clever lyrics and infectious melodies. Kennary, appropriately pronounced like the bird, started writing music when she was just 14. Now 23, she has graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, independently released an EP and full-length album, and is gearing up for her next EP release. Her warm sound is refreshingly honest and contagiously catchy.

She has graced stages around the country such as SPACE in Chicago and the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, as well as several shows in Ireland and the UK. She also appeared on ABC Chicago's "Windy City Live" in July 2014, where she played to an audience of 250,000+. Most notably, she was named a finalist for the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival's Songwriter Showcase in 2015 & 2016 and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival's Troubadour Songwriting Contest in 2015 & 2016, winning 2nd place in June of 2015.

Hadley lives in Nashville, Tennessee where she continues to write, record, and perform live.

Her next release, "Momentum EP", will be available wherever music is sold & streamed August 24th.

"Having such a varied selection of songs to choose from, Hadley Kennary is undoubtedly a concert experience to attend. I stumbled upon Kennary (pronounced like "canary") while exploring listings for upcoming shows, and I'm glad I did. Not only does Hadley Kennary have a beautiful name, she makes some beautiful music." -DigBoston.com

Will Pellerin
Will Pellerin
In September of 2015, Will Pellerin pulled in to the driveway of his new apartment in Hermitage, TN. With no job and everything he owned in the back of a 1999 Subaru Legacy, Will's musical journey was finally getting a start just 15 miles south-east of Nashville. As his father helped him unpack and before he left for the airport, he stated "Alright, now it's time for you to figure this out." Ever since that muggy Tennessee afternoon, that's exactly what Will has been trying to do.

Growing up on the banks of Lake Champlain in northern New York, Will spent a lot of time exploring the outdoors and the surrounding Adirondack Mountains. In elementary school, Will picked up the guitar. He began listening to, and studying, the songs of recording legends like James Taylor, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young. His musical interests and love for the outdoors finally collided when he attended university at St. Lawrence University in upstate New York. He spent 4 years as an active outdoor guide for the university, started a 7 piece folk group and was a member of the oldest a-capella group on campus. Although his academics immersed him into the natural world, his love for music was always pulling his mind in another direction.

After spending a summer working for a local farm just a few miles outside of Will's hometown, he wrote new songs and tried to develop himself as a songwriter. It was a conversation he had with his mother in their kitchen, when the topic of moving to Nashville came up. "She just told me flat out to just go for it, and that was just the nudge I needed." states Will, who within a month after that exact conversation, found himself planning a road trip to his new life in Tennessee.

Over the last year and a half, Will has traveled the east coast playing shows from Rockwood Music Hall in New York City to opening for soul-rockers on the shores of Charleston, South Carolina. After entering into National Public Radio's tiny desk concert contest in 2016, Will's song "Winter Song" was featured on North Country Public Radio before a show to a packed room at his alma-mater. Last July, Will played the Northern Exposure showcase, as a local artist on the rise, at Burlington, Vermont's Higher Ground Ballroom. This past November, he wrapped up recording his debut EP at the famous Woodland Recording Studios in Nashville. His first single "Lost and Found" can be heard on his SoundCloud page.

While continuing to promote his music through local and regional shows, Will currently resides in East Nashville. His love for live music and the sharing of his stories through his work, has allowed him to start finding a sense of community in Music City. "I know I still have a lot of work to do. There is a sound I was born to find, it's just up to me to go and find it."
Hanna Rae
Hanna Rae
Born in the Shenandoah Valley and raised on classic rock and roll, Hanna Rae began her musical journey before she can even recall. Her charming and compelling presence on the stage comes from years of performing both music and theater in her hometown of Staunton, Virginia. Like many in her craft, she packed up her bags and headed to Nashville, TN in 2011.



Hanna Rae makes her mark in female indie-pop with her Nashville debut EP, Rookie In The Ring. The 5 song project is cut from the same cloth as Ingrid Michelson and Sara Bareilles, sewn together with the folk sensibility of Brandi Carlile. Hanna Rae's voice, rich and effortless, brings life into her intricately woven lyrics atop tasteful layers of instrumentation and vocal harmonies. Whether it’s the grooving pop feel of “Silver Screens” or the acoustic textures of “Alabama”, Hanna Rae’s Rookie In The Ring is sure to bring her music into the light.
Cullen Wade & The Waters
Cullen Wade & The Waters
Louisiana natives Cullen Wade and Stephen Boudreaux moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2013 looking to bring a fresh sound to a city known for its traditional take on country music. After discovering local drummer Darren Darling and Ian McEwen on guitar, the band has spread its wings on winds of unique southern energy.

The band plays an outstanding and passionate live show with Cullen Wade's powerful, deep voice and message of life's lessons learned the hard way. A deep appreciation of southern, wholesome music brought the band together and the rock 'n' roll keeps bringing the crowds on their feet.

Often compared to Cat Stevens, Ryan Adams and Zac Brown Band, Cullen Wade & The Waters provide a show and experience worth seeing. Embarking on a nationwide US tour in 2017, tour dates for their summer shows will be announced on June 1st.
Riley Roth
Riley Roth
Most 18-year-olds are just beginning to
work towards their future career. Riley
isn't like "most". She's been working on
hers since the age of 8, beginning in
musical theater, then writing her own
country songs by 10, and picking up the
guitar by 12. She was on a mission,
already earning high school credit while
still in middle school. It was after being
invited by NBC to the Blind Auditions for
Season 8 of THE VOICE, when Riley
felt ready to know Nashville. Of course
she'd already met Nashville, having
written and recorded there, but she
wanted to KNOW Nashville, and have
Nashville know her. So she began began
forging her own path down Music Row!
For nearly two years, Riley and her mom
traveled to Nashville monthly, where they stayed with a mixing engineer and his family, who believe in Riley. Splitting her time equally between Nashville and her hometown in Pennsylvania, Riley began networking and continued writing lyrics and melodies well beyond her years, positioning herself for a career in the industry.

All the while, Riley worked extra hard in school, taking summer, online, and regular courses, along with independent study. On track to graduate as a Junior, she saved one course, so she could "walk" at graduation with her class as a Senior. She completed both semesters of that last class very quickly, finishing her senior year in November 2016. As if her plate wasn't already full, she began learning to play the piano, thanks to a very generous donor, who gifted her one of Yamaha's top stage pianos and accessories.
Riley moved to Nashville March 2017, where she has developed fantastic relationships. Having planted the seed for a music career, Riley is eager to watch it grow!

Riley has been blessed with some amazing opportunities to play in Nashville's renowned venues such as The Bluebird, The Listening Room Cafe, The Commodore Grille, and many others. She has performed in venues and schools throughout eleven states, playing solo shows as well as with a cajon drummer. Her largest venue to date is the Bryce Jordan Center, where she has played two years in a row for Penn State's THON to a crowd of 16,000 people.

Riley has an extremely kind heart, is very active in Young Life, and has a generous spirit. She is a vegetarian, health-conscious, into fitness, a "giver", and lover of nature and animals. Having a sister with special needs, she supports Special Olympics. With her naturally curly hair, bohemian flair, and magnetic personality, Riley is sure to steal your heart! You will find her out and about Nashville, where she is making a life, not just a living!
