Sinclair
Sinclair
Raised in upstate New York, Sinclair was one of the youngest in a house of 11. She quickly found her niche in the home by carving out a space in music.  It became a place to hide and her avenue out of the heavy pull of family obligation and tradition.  She left home and spent some time in New York City - recording with established producers/songwriters while learning any instrument she could get her hands on.  After NY, she found herself in Los Angeles working on her critically-acclaimed debut EP with John Alagia (John Mayer, Dave Mathews) and Nolan Sipe (Andy Grammar). Released in the fall of 2014, the Sweet Talk EP featured the haunting yet uplifting standout This Too Shall Pass a song that's rooted in Sinclair's stifled upbringing and redeemed by her understanding that time and space will heal all things. Prior to the release of that EP, Sinclair settled into her new home of Nashville, TN and went back into the studio to find the next batch of songs.  This music would be the first that Sinclair writes, tracks and produces on her own. With the help of her two bandmates, she brought in every sound and influence from the modern pop scene that she adores, while keeping the authenticity of her songwriter past.  The CLRBLND EP was released in the spring of 2016 and shows a sharp departure from her debut collection.  These new songs mirror a young musician coming into her own in the studio as both a writer and producer.  Losing the traditional band tracking of her prior recordings, Sinclair opts to build a mountain of beats with sharp synth sounds and sliced guitars to reflect the energy and color of these songs.

Brasko
Brasko
Brasko moved to Nashville from Akron, Ohio in 2011 at the age of 19. Young, and without many connections, he spent lots of nights on friend’s couches or even sleeping in his own car. Now 25, and working with hit-producer Cason Cooley, it’s safe to say Brasko has made his own way to his own sound in The New Nashville. Obsessed with old Todd Rundgren and David Bowie records, Brasko incorporates all his quirky influences—like cabaret and Burt Bacharach—into modern tunes he he hopes will be the background music to your next night out dancing, falling for someone special, and perhaps even making love.

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.

Harrison Wheeler
Harrison Wheeler
After playing in numerous bands & inexplicably landing on a reality singing show, Harrison Wheeler has found his niche. With catchy pop hooks and honest lyrics he hopes to: 1. captivate any audience that is put before him & 2. become better at writing bios for himself.
Brooke Alexx
Brooke Alexx
Show-stopping, head-turning, powerhouse pop singer, Brooke Alexx, is no stranger to the stage. Fostered by a childhood career in musical theater, Brooke's voice is comparable in strength and range to Alicia Keys, JoJo, and Demi Lovato, but features distinct rich, velvety undertones. A New Jersey native who recently made the big move to Nashville, TN, Brooke is writing radio-ready earworms and diving head-first into the R&B-infused synth-pop sound she was always destined to have.

Performing acoustically and with her all-female band, Brooke has been showing off with her fierce vocals and catchy hooks at established local venues such as Exit/In, Bluebird Cafe, The Local, and The 5 Spot. Additionally, she was one of 4 finalists in the Nashville Rising Star songwriting competition. Bridging hard work and natural-born talent, Brooke is on a mission to make her name known in Music City's bubbling pop scene.
AV
AV
AV’s raw pop creations are the brainchild of Allison Victoria. While growing up in Chicago, AV listened to Alanis Morissette, Destiny’s Child, Demi Lovato, and many others. As soon as she began her music career at 13, she was traveling to LA to collaborate with other artists and producers. Shortly after high school, however, AV was diagnosed with a brain tumor and had to undergo surgery to remove it. Shortly after surgery (10 days to be exact) AV moved to Nashville to complete her degree in Songwriting at Belmont University. Though keeping up with multiple jobs, school, and continued recovery was difficult, she graduated in 2015, fully recovered and finally remembers how to tie her shoes (most days).



Songwriting sessions in Nashville and Los Angeles revealed AV as a brutally honest go-getter and an expressive vocalist. She writes about her experiences, keeping her lyrics honest, and her stories unfiltered on stage. Debut single “Just Us” soundtracks a relationship in limbo that fails when the foundation of honesty and communication crumbles. The song dances between the idea that she is sensitive in her love, but also, aggressive in nature and not to be toyed with.
Dustin Hensley

“I had the light bulb moment and it hit me—‘I’m not having any fun.’”

What do you do as an artist when the expectations of others, and of yourself, are up against the truth in your heart?

Only months ago, singer/songwriter Dustin Hensley found himself at that very crossroad, where his musical path began to forge into two different directions; one taking him where he originally thought he should travel and the other where he knew deep in his heart he should go.

“I grew up in the South, in the ‘sticks,’ and I love country music,” Hensley says. “But I also love so many other styles and genres. Country was the safer bet and it seemed like it made the most sense, but I never felt like I fit in. It never felt like 'my version' of Country. Nothing that I was creating felt like it told my whole truth.”

In 2015, the Tennessee native released a single “Don’t Call It A Night” to great reviews, with Billboard Magazine’s Chuck Dauphin calling the singer, “Country for sure, but also bears more than a little resemblance to acts such as Tracy Chapman, thanks to his soulful touch…” Hensley was a regular on the writer’s circuit of Nashville, and toured all over the country playing and visiting radio stations in support of the music.

But a fateful visit to a new publisher gave Hensley the best advice of his career—the advice that struck a major chord and made him confront his inner artistic struggle.


“He said, ‘I love everything that you’re doing. I love you—you’re fun, you’ve got the chops, but these songs aren’t really you. You need to go have fun,’” Hensley remembers.

“I was sitting in the parking lot in my truck after the meeting, and I had the light bulb moment and it hit me—‘I’m not having any fun.’”

So he set out to have fun with his music the only way he knows how: to simply be himself—Dustin, the life of the party. To tell his truth, through his eyes, with his unique voice like only he can.

“At the end of the day, I’m a lot of different things and a lot of different sounds,” he says. “And I’ve decided to throw all of them—pop, R&B, country, classic rock, southern gospel—into my music. Call it whatever you want. If you think it's pop, great. If you think it's country, awesome. No matter what, it's me telling stories. My life and my truth.”

And it’s working for Hensley, who’s never been happier than this moment in his musical journey. He’s ready to let the world hear his truth—and for once, he doesn’t fear the outcome.

“I’m okay with not being okay,” he confesses. “I’ve grown up a lot in the last couple of years and I’m ready to throw it all out there and see what happens. I have had a plan before, and it didn’t work for me. There's a quote that says 'Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end,' and that gives me something I can work with."
