Fred Wilhelm: Fred Wilhelm is an award-winning songwriter/singer originally from New England. He grew up on a family farm where his duties included feeding the chickens and carting out a wheelbarrow of cow manure every day before school. The latter experience has proved extremely useful in the music business.

Although his songs have been recorded by a multitude of multiplatinum superstars (like Rascal Flatts, Lindsay Ell, Walker Hayes, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Randy Travis and more), as well as highly revered Americana artists (like Lori McKenna, Matthew Perryman Jones, Mindy Smith and others), featured in film and television, and played on stages the world over, he considers his greatest professional accomplishment to be avoiding a day job since 1999. He is a prolific writer, creating well over 100 copyrights a year, and a regular performer at The Bluebird Cafe and other listening rooms.
Marshall Altman: Marshall Altman began his music career in the mid-90’s fronting the West Coast rock band Farmer, which was subsequently signed to Aware Records. After several US tours, Marshall found himself drawn more to developing and recording new artists rather than pursuing his own recording career. After a series of recordings with Citizen Cope (resulting in Citizen Cope’s signing on to Capitol Records), Marshall transitioned into the world of A&R – first at Capitol Records then Hollywood Records and finally Columbia Records, where his last two projects as an A & R person were Katy Perry and OneRepublic. Despite his successes inside the label system, the desire for unbridled creativity was too great and in 2005, he left Columbia Records and embarked on a full time career as a writer/producer.

Since shifting into his role as a full time producer and songwriter Marshall has established himself as a writer/producer who can work across virtually all genres of music with acclaimed albums made in the mainstream pop, singer/songwriter, country, Christian, metal, and indie worlds.

Known for defining the emotional currency of the artists he has worked with, his production credits include: Amy Grant, Eric Paslay, Frankie Ballard, Matt Nathanson’s Some Mad Hope (three platinum singles, including “All We Are,” which he co-wrote), Marc Broussard’s definitive album Carencro (on which Marshall co-wrote Marc’s career defining song, “Home”), Brooke Fraser (Albertine), Audrey Assad, Will Hoge, Gabe Dixon, Kate Voegele (platinum single), William Fitzsimmons (iTunes singer/songwriter album of the year in US and Australia), The Almost, Walker Hayes, Rosi Golan (50+ TV licenses), Adema, Matt Wertz, Trevor Hall, Caitlin Crosby, Kim Caldwell, Tom Morello, and many more.

As of late 2018, currents projects in production include Fairground Saints (Sony Nashville), Kenny Wayne Shepherd (Concord), The Josh Abbot Band (Pretty Damn Tough), & Colin Elmore (Sony), as well as several projects in development.
Colin Elmore: Colin Elmore grew up in Willow Springs, Mo. (pop. 2,221). Influences include James Taylor, Jim Croce, and Gordon Lightfoot. He began writing original songs at 16.  Said John Dillon of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, “Colin Elmore is a songwriter who has an uncanny ability to tap the fuel of all good poetry: love, life, and the land. His lyrics are full of mystery and beauty, and his studied attention to melody and metaphor make his songs resonate with truth as deep as the roots of some old Missouri oak.”  Eventually he caught the attention of Jim Catino, A&R Sr. EVP for Sony Music Nashville, who signed him to a deal. Elmore also signed with WME and inked a publishing deal with Wrensong/Reynsong Entertainment.  Colin Elmore is currently working on new music fusing country, soul, southern and indie rock with his unique style of Ozark-inspired storytelling. 
Kalie Shorr: Kalie Shorr burst onto the Nashville music scene in 2016  with her self-penned hit “Fight Like A Girl” . The Portland, Maine singer-songwriter became a Sirius X M Highway Find and was praised by Spotify, CMT, Radio Disney Country, Taste of Country, and even Billboard  magazine. In 2017, Kalie released her Slingshot  EP to rave reviews and was named “New Artist You Need to Know”  by Rolling Stone, “The New Nashville” by Teen Vogue , and one of “2017's Hottest Artists Under 25 ” by Taste of Country . Her newest single “Two Hands” has already been added to  Sirius XM , Radio Disney Country. Pandora and TuneIn with prominent placement on Apple Music's Breaking Country and Cool Country playlists.  Recently named a CMT Next Women of Country and a “Top 10 Country Artists To Watch In 2018”  by the Huffington Post, Kalie released her new EP Awake to critical acclaim and is currently touring with Sara Evans and Rae Lynn on the CMT Next Women of Country All For Love Tour.  Playing over 100 shows a year, Kalie’s message of female- empowerment has led to her being called the “next‘ Women of Country’  generation”  [CMChat] and a “modern country woman [who will] continue to inspire in 2018”  []
