Brent Anderson: Brent Anderson is described by his co-writers as a “creative force”- a songwriter that can play anything, sing anything, and write anything – and he’s just getting started.  A Pascagoula, Mississippi native, Anderson’s love for performing and writing songs developed early and by age 13, he had already started his own band. With the support of his parents, Anderson relocated to Nashville and landed his first publishing deal when he was only 15-years-old.  Then, in 2009, he signed with Sea Gayle Music Publishing and has since had cuts with Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Tylar Farr, Randy Houser, Bucky Covington and Elliot Yamin. His credits also include the #1 hit “Lonely Tonight” by Blake Shelton featuring Ashley Monroe and other singles, “Cold Beer With Your Name On It” (Josh Thompson) and “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely” (Sheryl Crow).  Brent has also recently been in the studio co-producing the new Chris Jansen album for Warner Brothers including the breakthrough hit “Buy Me A Boat”.
Jeb Gipson: I’m from a small town in the north eastern part of Georgia. Go as far north east as you can, and you’ll run slap into a little place called Clayton. That’s where I grew up. And even though I live in Nashville, Tennessee now, I still proudly call that tiny dot on the map home. I started playing music at pretty young age. I’d say 6 or 7. My dad bought me a mandolin and a “Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky thunder” record and thats all it took, I was hooked.You might not be able to tell it now, but bluegrass music was a huge influence on me when I was starting out. My dad actually played and still plays in a bluegrass band back home.And those early years and lessons of him showing me chords and licks on the guitar were very crucial in the making of where I am now musically. Songwriting literally started consuming my life around the age of 17. I didn’t really even know you could make an actual living writing songs back then. . . I was just doing it cause I loved it. 
It wasn’t too long after that though that I met a guy named Tom Long, who was truly God Sent if you ask me. He opened a lot of doors for me up here in Nashville. If it weren’t for Tom, I’d probably still be digging ditches for the County Road Department back home. He started taking trips with me to music city to meet with publishers and ultimately got me in front Chris DuBois, the owner of Sea Gayle Music Publishing. Thankfully Chris and the folks at Sea Gayle took a chance on young green wanna be songwriter and offered me a publishing deal in the spring of 2016. And they certainly didn’t have to talk me into it, if you know what I mean. Their resumé’ speaks for itself, and I’m so happy to be working with those guys. I packed my bags, kissed my momma goodbye and moved up to Tennessee as quick as I could. 
Getting to work on music row everyday, you find out real quick that there’s a lot of talented people in this world. The singer/songwriting community is a close nit group of guys and gals that show up every single day with passion and a purpose. Somehow or another they decided to let me in the club, and I get to call those people not only my co-workers but more importantly, my friends. And well my friends and I have written a lot of songs over the past couple years, and I can’t wait to share some of them with y’all. 
Josh Matheny: Josh Matheny was born in Minden, LA and raised in the small town of Magnolia, AR.  Josh was born into a family of bluegrass musicians; his mom and uncle toured with their bluegrass band from 1978 through 1984. His mom sang, played bass and guitar and his uncle played dobro. He began to grace the stage with them at shows around the age of 3 singing and playing (strumming) mandolin. Josh started seriously learning to play guitar and sing at age 7, entering talent shows and playing festivals all around the TX, OK, LA, AR area. He began dobro and lap steel at age 12 and hasn't looked back since. Josh had his own bluegrass band from age 15 until he moved to Nashville in the Summer of 2001 to attend Belmont University. He then started playing with the Whites - Grand Ole Opry members - during his time off from school.

Josh was a member of the acclaimed Nashville based band KingBilly who had their own show on GAC and traveled the world on tour with many country artists from 2006 to 2011. Josh has performed and/or recorded with artists such as Meghan Trainor, Ricky Skaggs, Vince Gill, Kacey Musgraves, Lucy Hale, Earl Scruggs, Jo Dee Messina, Sara Evans, Lynryd Skynyrd, Richard Marx, Hugh Jackman, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Emmylou Harris, and Jerry Douglas, He performs at the Grand Ole Opry on a regular basis and travels overseas with country and bluegrass artists. Josh graduated from Belmont in the summer of 2005 with degree in Music Business Management/Marketing. He's currently a staff writer for Curb Music Publishing and an in demand dobro/steel session player in Nashville. Writing, singing, recording and performing keeps him running day to day and he wouldn't have it any other way. It's been a part of his life since day one and continues to get more and more exciting everyday! If Josh couldn't play or sing music he would be flying planes -he is also a pilot, having started learning to fly at age 14. 
Anna Vaus: Anna Vaus is The California Kid, and that nickname is the title of her debut EP released on September 28. "I'm guilty as charged when it comes to writing songs about where I come from," says the Poway, CA native. "It's made me who I am. So many different characters and stories have grown out of a place I love so much. I find a dark humor in some of them, but I find truth in all of them." Vaus’ deep connection with her home state combined with an ever-growing passion for genuine country music made Nashville the perfect place for her roots to find wings.

In 2016, Vaus was chosen by Miranda Lambert as the first recipient of the Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund which awards a female singer/songwriter a scholarship to attend Belmont University. Later that year, she was featured in Belmont’s Best of the Best Showcase. Vaus signed a publishing deal with Black River Entertainment in 2017 and this year she was chosen as one of six up-and-coming songwriters in AIMP’s Class of 2018 as well as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2019. The music video for her song “Day Job” is currently featured on CMT’s 24/7 music channel, CMT Music. She is signed with CAA and has opened for major country artists such as Lee Ann Womack, Jon Pardi, Old Dominion and Hunter Hayes and regularly plays shows and songwriter rounds at various Nashville venues, including The Bluebird Cafe. But no matter where she plays or who it's with, for Vaus it’s always all about the song.
