James T Slater:
James T. Slater is a two time, grammy nominated, piano-playing, bilingual singer-songwriter residing in Nashville, Tennessee. He was born in Durham, North Carolina, and raised in the tropics of the Panama Canal Zone in Central America. 
James is signed to BMG Music Publishing, his songs have been recorded by Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Kelly Pickler, Reba McEntire, Gloriana, Martina McBride, Enrique Iglesias, Chris Brown, Chris Young, Willie Nelson, Chris Isaak, Rhett Akins, John Michael Montgomery, Alabama, Mark Wills, Cassadee Pope and a host of others. 

His Grammy nominations include Jamey Johnson's "The High Cost of Living", and Martina's “In My Daughter’s Eyes” which has become a modern day standard garnering James a BMI country award as well as a BMI pop award in 2006.
Kat Higgins: Currently signed to BMG Nashville through Patrick Joseph Music, Kat Higgins’ biggest songwriting credit to date is as a collaborator on the Carrie Underwood track "Mexico" with Derrick Adam Southerland and Jamie Moore, released on Underwood’s 2015 album Storyteller. But that isn’t Higgins’ first taste of success. For the majority of her life so far, she was part of Canadian country family trio The Higgins, who released two albums on Open Road Records. But her destiny was permanently altered when she first stepped on Nashville soil.

“The Higgins came to Nashville to visit, and as soon as I walked off the plane and out of the airport, I was heartbroken – because I knew I wasn’t going to want to be at home anymore in Canada,”  says Higgins, who began writing  songs when she was 13 years old. “My heart hasn’t left Nashville since.” After The Higgins went on hiatus due to sister Eileen’s pregnancy, fellow Canuck and professional songwriter Deric Ruttan and his wife Margaret took Kat under their wing, offering sanctuary while she sorted herself out.

The Delta, BC, native says her tenure with The Higgins “got me in [writing] rooms that I would have never gotten in, because we had a record deal in Canada, and writers wanted to contribute to [our] singles.” Having written the bhangra-inspired “Mexico,” Higgins says at press time that she’s awaiting news on a track she hopes to have landed with an American male country artist. She’s placed her songs “Old Soul” on The Voice, and “Johnny Cash Heart” on American Idol.

Higgins hasn’t abandoned her performing career; she’s setting up a Canadian tour for 2019 and will release a few new songs on Spotify.
Chris August: I love writing, producing and mixing music. I started on an old 4-track tape recorder when I was 15 and never stopped. My new record, Seasons, is a little unlike any other record I've done. I didn't have a certain theme or sound in mind other than to make the music I love making. I poured my soul into every lyric and every piece of the music. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did recording it!
Stephen Wilson: Stephen Wilson was born and raised in the small Southern Indiana town of Seymour, Indiana. He grew up in the country, loving the music and the outdoors. After hearing Led Zeppelin's, "Over the Hills and Far Away" he decided to teach himself guitar and began to play around with songwriting. After earning a degree in Microbiology, Stephen co-founded the rock band AutoVaughn. The band signed to Epic records and as co-songwriter and lead guitarist, Stephen travelled the US & UK extensively, garnering much attention from fans and the music industry alike for his songwriting and unique guitar style. Stephen continues to write songs, now mostly country. He has a knack for writing songs with strong hooks, storytelling and big harmonies.
