Avalon Kali: Avalon Kali is a Country Pop Artist from Folsom, California. She moved to Nashville, Tennessee to attend Belmont University in 2014 to follow her dream of becoming a singer/songwriter. In the summer of 2017, Kali collaborated with Hey World Productions to work on her first self titled EP, "Avalon Kali", and first single, "Speechless." She continues to work with songwriters and artists in Nashville while playing writer's rounds and shows. New single "Looking Back On You" will release February 22, 2019.
Becca Richardson: Becca Richardson has always navigated uncertain spaces. As a mixed-race daughter in middle America, someone always feeling “just left of inside,” the questions surrounding what it means to belong and connect have long been on her mind. From her childhood bedroom in small-town Ohio, Richardson found a first spark of connection through her love of music. Her earliest musical memories are of her mother dancing in the kitchen to artists like Fleetwood Mac and Cat Stevens, and her father spinning records from the likes of Coltrane and Phoebe Snow after work. After learning to sing and play the piano and guitar, she discovered a deep passion for songwriting — something that still serves as a powerful tool for discovering herself and carving out a space in the world.

As an adult, Richardson headed west, honing her style in Northern California. That sunny, jangly influence makes an appearance in her songs, combined with her electronic sensuality and a bluesy sensibility. Richardson provides examinations into womanhood, otherness and the concept of autonomy.

Richardson is now located in Nashville,TN. Her LP, We Are Gathered Here, was self-released in October 2017 and has garnered national attention from publications like Paste Magazine and Brightest Young Things, as well as local play on Nashville's Lightning 100 radio
Jack Berry: Nashville-based alt/blues rocker, Jack Berry, premieres his sophomore album to wide approval. "An intoxicating blend of rock and blues." (Consequence of Sound) Berry’s gritty rock has garnered acclaim from Blues Rock Review (Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2013, #2 album of 2013, Top 20 of 2016) and The Deli Magazine (Top Ten Nashville Artists to Watch, 2015). Berry has also been featured in showcases by American Songwriter Magazine, No Country for New Nashville, Nashville's The Buzz 102.9, Lightning 100.1 and ACME Radio. 

Originally from Reno, Nevada, Berry left Los Angeles after performing along the West Coast as duo, deciding Nashville would be a key in helping cultivate the style and sound Berry envisioned. It wasn't long before the “ample supply of good hooks and riffs” (Nashville Scene) eventually gained the praise of critics throughout Nashville and beyond, earning him spots at well-known festivals, including CMA Fest, North by Northeast in Toronto, New York City’s CMJ Music Marathon, SXSW’s Red Gorilla Festival and Hard Rock Cafe's North American battle of the bands winner. Berry's sophomore effort entitled "Mean Machine" has been called "the perfect example of an old-school genre mixing seemlesslu with a contemporary sound as an intoxicating blend of rock and blues" (Pop Wrapped) and earned a 9/10 from Blues Rock Review. 

Most recently, songs ”Kiss Like” and ”Bad Dog” were featured by Marshall Speakers anf Showtime’s Shameless respectively."With a voice that could scare the venom out of a rattlesnake, Berry is poised to break through to the mainstream with 'Mean Machine'"(Consequence of Sound).
Preston James: Music to Preston James has never been about fame or notoriety. To him, music isn’t a hobby or even a way to make a living. No. Instead, music is so intertwined with Preston’s daily life it’s as essential to him as food, air and water. That may seem like an exaggeration but one only has to spend five minutes with this professed “music nerd” to understand nothing else drives or defines him. Whether it’s listening to, reading or talking about, singing or playing, writing or recording, alone or in front of a crowd; music is the force that moves Preston James forward.

In just the last two years, this double threat of a vocalist and guitar virtuoso has spent countless nights onstage blowing the lid off packed houses at The Wildhorse Saloon, ACME Feed & Seed, Puckett’s and Martin’s BBQ in the historic Nashville Downtown District. Preston was invited by Delbert McClinton to perform with the legend during his Sandy Beaches Cruise and another legend – Vince Gill invited him up to sit in and sing one with the Grammy award winning Time Jumpers.

In 2016, at age 15, James secured a Top 48 spot on Season 11 of The Voice (Team Blake) beating out nearly 300,000 who auditioned and this year, he auditioned for Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan for American Idol on ABC, where he made it to the Hollywood Rounds.

As long as we’re rattling off bullet points, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the two standing ovations he received from a sold-out Ryman Auditorium crowd in December of 2017 as the opener for The Brian Setzer Orchestra. This was made even cooler by the fact that not only were those fans not there to see him, they had no idea who he was because his name wasn’t even printed on the ticket stub.
