Kendra Chantelle
Kendra Chantelle
An old soul with grit, power, angst and blues...stuck in the body of a 20-something year old girl from TN. Kendra never stood a chance at "normal" as the daughter of a drummer (father) and singer (mother) and her creativity was nourished from a young age. She writes songs that cover many genre bridges but always has an element of soul. Rock and roll fits her attitude very well, and being on the road with Cinderella's Tom Keifer has caused the rock and roll world to embrace the young/old artist.
She did a stent on American Idol (Season 10) and made quite an impression, but was relieved when she moved on to do her own thing. Her "own thing" took her across 10 countries singing for the Armed Forces and she has been on the road with Tom Keifer for two years, covering America, Canada, and most of Europe and Russia. She is currently writing and recording new music
Daphne Willis
Daphne Willis
Collaborating across multiple genres ranging from Roots-Rock and Pop to Hip Hop and Electronic Dance Music, classifying Daphne Willis in musical terms is no easy task. With infectious melodies delivered with lyrical precision and honesty, the songs and performances of Daphne Willis are sincere, compelling and relevant.

Raised in Chicago and relocated now to Nashville, Willis cites influences as varied as Elvis Costello and Michael Jackson, but her musical output cleverly incorporates such inspirations into a style that is refreshing and contemporary in a way that suits her songs best.

Angela Laino
Angela Laino
Angela Laino joined the Elite Miami Children’s Choir when she was thirteen. She has performed around the world, singing to audiences in Salzburg, Austria, The Vatican, and Carnigie Hall, as well as lending her voice to the Florida Grand Opera.

Angela attended the New World School of the Arts High School and began studies in the rigorous vocal and musical education program. Although the school was one of the top music schools in the country, Angel found herself insatiably drawn to deeper rooted music such as gospel, negro spirituals, and torch songs, which were not the musical focus at New World. Seeking a deeper connection to the music that was stirring inside of her, Angela joined an outside Gospel choir and finally felt whole again.

When Angela turned just seventeen, her mother passed away. It was then up to Angela to make ends meet. She began living on her own, going to school and maintaining two jobs in order to care for her younger sister. This would later be the source of inspiration for her riveting music. She had her hands full but was determined not to give up. Angela began working as bartender, always in establishments that provided live music, with the hopes of using their stages as an opportunity to share her own origional songs. It didn’t take long to turn this hope into a reality. Every job that Angela has ever had, to this very day, has had a stage that she’s performed on.

At twenty one, Angela was one of the the youngest business owners in Miami, opening The Tree of Zion vegetarian restaurant and live music venue. She was not only one of the first Vegan restaurants to open in Miami, but one of the few places that Miami musicians could call home. Many a beautiful song was born there.

Angela moved to New York City two years ago and is currently performing at premier venues across the city. She has recently been chosen to represent Tanqueray Gin as one of the faces of the brand for their two year campaign featuring young, passionate talent who follow and pursue their dreams with as much vigor as did Charles Tanqueray . The campaign is currently running nation wide, featuring billboards and internet commercials, which play across major sites such as Hulu, Pandora, and Eater.
Caleb Lovely
Caleb Lovely
If California invented cool then LOVELY reinvented California.
The pop singer that has the funk of Bruno Mars and the hair of Johnny Bravo has made it his goal and profession to curate a sound that leaves any generation on the dance floor.

If you ask him where he's from, he'll tell you "a little bit of everywhere.."
you can't put his location in a box, and you can't put his style in a box.
A singing songwriter since the age of 17, and a guitarist since the age of 11.
LOVELY first decided at the age of 12 that he was destined for the stage when he saw Lenny Kravitz perform on tv.

With hits like "Shameless" hinting at beats and then dropping them like bombs in the chorus; these songs are pulsating with a currency that money could not match.

From songs that make you wanna hang up the phone and go out with your friends
To haunting ballads like "Cold" that leave you with more goosebumps than you had when you were listening, LOVELY is an artist for himself which beautifully translates to an artist for the people.

If a guitar could be personified in the composure of a man LOVELY would embody a 50's Fender. With tattoos that crawl up his arms to tell their own story, and lungs that reach the notes of Steven Tyler, his live performances wrap up an entire arena tour in one set. LOVELY is every bit of his last name.
Noah Barlass
Noah Barlass
Noah Barlass is from a small town in oklahoma. He grew up singing in church and by the age of five he began performing, thus bloomed his passion for music he still has today. By the age of fifteen, Noah had allready toured the US and recoreded two full length albums (the second which was an original that was co-written by himself and other top Nashville writers).

Noah was approached by record labels, but turned them down to take a break to rediscover himself musically and explore life as a late teen. At the age of 20, Noah decided he had waited long enough, and it was time to begin giving music his everything again. He had not forgotten about music during his time away, he used his "break" to write and completely revamp his sounds and image to what it has developed into now.

By remaining true to himself with his unique vocal style choices, he is cultivating a new and unique sound, that can be catagorize into "Alternative Pop R&B".

He is now producing, writing, and working on his EP, Dream World, which will be released later 2014.

Jessica Cayne

From the dark mind and little black heart of Jessica Cayne
LAW.
LAW.
"Seemingly emerging out of nowhere, LAW.'s first release hit the airwaves at the beginning of 2017, demonstrating an uncanny ability to deliver her pop sensibilities while keeping intact a sense of exploration, experimentation, and freedom. Growing up in Boston, LAW. began her music career experimenting with folk-pop and raw country while teaching herself guitar and piano - releasing her first album under her given name of Charlotte Sands at the impressive age of 16. From there she moved to Nashville to hone her songwriting craft and wrote songs for various pop & country artists. It was in this industry heavy environment that caused a reaction with which she rebelled against the corporate mentality of music and songwriting. In her first release under her new moniker and new found sense of freedom, she managed to delve throughout the entire spectrum of emotion and the human experience in just five songs. Her ability to weld together dark and moody beats intricately with strong melodies is juxtaposed with unashamedly venturing into dance electro/pop hits demonstrating a lack of fear and pandering which is much needed in the current music kaleidoscope."

Del-Amina
Del-Amina
Del-Amina is an emerging Neo-Classical/R&B/Jazz singer and songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Her rich, sultry voice expresses a raw vulnerability as she sings her songs of the ebb and flow of romantic love, the valleys and victories on her journey to self-love, and her observations of society through the eyes of a Black Woman. Her debut project, This Moment the EP, captures these themes and highlights her ability to craft music that demands reflection and introspection. In just one short year she’s been tapped to play the Lighting 100 stage at Nashville’s premiere summer music series, Musician’s Corner, and has had the opportunity to appear on two local radio programs. Del-Amina is excited to use her platform to share music and love with the world.
Kyra Christiaan
Kyra Christiaan
KYRA CHRISTIAAN- “Though she be but little, she is fierce!” Whether in the unique twists and turns in her life, or in her music, this 5’2” Texas-born Pop singer/songwriter/actress just doesn’t break. She rarely stops talking or singing about life, love, pain or the pain of love and life. She’s a true pop music lover and creator and always grabs more attention than one would ever predict, given her size. It’s the powerful, passionate honesty in her life and her music that resonates. After going undercover for a while, to write and grow, she’s ready to debut her new single, “Up 2 Me” in February, 2017, with a video premier in March, followed by a summer EP release.

It all starts in North Dallas…
Born a unique blend of ethnicities including Native American, African American, Caucasian, Irish and English, Kyra will sharply inform you that “ “Not all mixed girls look the same.” Just moments after her birth, Kyra was life-flighted to Baylor Hospital for her first of many surgeries. Even though she spent most of her early years in and out of children’s hospitals, she was singing and performing in musical theater, on children’s records and in radio commercials by the age of 4. Her family moved to Nashville when she was 9 years old. On her 13th birthday, just 4 months after a second heart surgery, she sang and performed an original co-write for a major label showcase that resulted in her first song placement with EMI, ASCAP/BMG. That song, “Joyride” was on a top charting CD that included a remix. It was featured on Disney Channel, Radio Disney and other pop radio stations and stages around the world and on various additional compilations and remix projects. Her voice can now be heard on the Disney TV/soundtrack/DVD “Shake It Up” single, “School’s Out.” This track gained her a large following of sweet young Disney fans.

Kyra grew up in a music/entertainment biz family, so it’s what she’s used to. Early on, she was heavily exposed and involved in the Contemporary Christian Music industry, but as a young teen she found her way to the pop and R&B music that she was cautiously exposed to at home. She dove into the influences and sounds she truly connected with and wanted to follow and create. “I was guarded from a lot of music and media as a child, but there was always good R&B, Gospel, Motown soul, pop, jazz and country music playing at home. Once I was older, my mom sat with me in our home studio and played all of her once forbidden classic Prince LP’s back to back for me. It felt like home. I’ve just mixed that with my love for the artists I grew up on like Michael, The Jackson5, Brandy, Mariah, Whitney, Janet, along with my love for newer artists like Chris Brown, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Justin Beiber, Kehlani, Drake and Kacey Musgraves... I’m a true lover of good, fun music and clever writing. Pop is always moving and mixing it up. It’s either gonna make you smile, scream, cry or dance. It’s gotta do somethin’!”

Kyra has several commercials, film, print modeling and music video credits (Kings Of Leon, Alan Jackson, Nick Carter, Eric Church). She has performed on stages in the US, London and Denmark, but as a singer/songwriter, she’s been in more Nashville and L.A. studios and writing rooms than she can count. She shares writing credits on her upcoming EP with Nash Overstreet (American Music Award winner, Hot Chelle Rae) & Ben Schofield. Throughout her career she has also garnered co-write credits with award winners like Morris Hayes, Paul Overstreet, Tyler Hayes-Biecks, Drew Ramsey, Cindy Morgan as well as new artist James Droll and production teams- HOT RUSH and BOY GENIUS.

The upcoming EP marks a new beginning for Kyra Christiaan. “I’m ready now, because I’m comfortable with my story, it’s time and I’m bored with being quiet.”

Favorite quote- “Everyday I feel is a blessing from God. And I consider it a new beginning. Yeah, everything is beautiful.” ~Prince.
