KYLE MERCER "...From his twangy country voice to his down home traditional country sound, Kyle believes that a guitar, a beer, and a whole lot of that two-stepping music is the simplest equation for a good time. His sound has somewhat been derived from his idols like Garth Brooks and George Strait, to name a few, but his style and music are his own. Kyle Mercer is a taste of that good ol' traditional country music, wrangler wearing cowboy vibe with a fresh modern twist. www.kylemercermusic.com

ERICA "SUNSHINE" LEE... "Nashville Recording Artist & International touring Singer and prolific songwriter that truly brings the deep Southern-fried country with a splash of dirt road country and a kick of rock-n-roll attitude!"
— Orsley Entertainment

JUSTIN ROBBINS...Forged by the sounds of the Blue Ridge Mountains in East Tennessee, Justin’s influences are rooted in classic American music.  Exploring the brave new world we live in, he aims to bridge the gap between emotion and connection we sometimes miss in our technology centered lives.  Catchy and lyrically driven, you’ll find yourself singing along as you journey through life by way of his songs!

JOHN BIELECKI ... Some years ago, after having a song place as a top 5 finalist in the coveted “Song of the Year” songwriting contest John got connected with some hit writers to evaluate more of his work. After submitting a couple of other songs for an evaluation/critique, a well know hit songwriter told him that one was “brilliant”and the other was “a bit of genius”. Those were the words that got John to go to Nashville! 
Now, hundreds of songs later, written with some amazing up and coming artists, John has a number of cuts on independent artist albums and is working towards the day when a major hit blasts the radio. He says, “I absolutely love the process of creating and crafting a song!  Using imagery in basically writing a 3 minute movie is so very rewarding. And, when that process triggers an emotion with a listener, well, that is our ultimate satisfaction as songwriters!”
