Richard Trest: Richard Trest is a New Orleans native who grew up on the Mississippi Gulf coast.  He wails on guitar, bass, lead and harmony vocals, and harmonica, but his love of songwriting ultimately led him to move to Nashville in the late 1990’s.  Richard has become one of the Nashville song machine cogs, writing and co-writing with hit writers, producing, and supporting other songwriters and emerging artists.
Jeff Batson: Jeff Batson is a Nashville-based singer/songwriter originally from the St. Louis suburb of Cahokia, Illinois. He developed a strong regional following playing the clubs around metropolitan St. Louis before relocating to Nashville in 1997. Some of his more notable engagements include opening for artists such as Hank Williams, Jr., Keith Urban, Tracy Byrd, Collin Raye and rock 'n' roller, Gary U.S. Bonds. The St. Louis Post Dispatch once called him “a natural frontman." Jeff’s numerous radio and television appearances through the years include a performance on TNN’s Prime Time Country and a reenactment role in an episode of The Discovery Channel's "New Detectives." Since relocating to Nashville, Jeff has concentrated on his songwriting while continuing to perform both with his band and at songwriter’s events. As a songwriter, Jeff has over 40 cuts by other artists to his credit including the title cut on Tracy Lawrence’s Grammy-nominated gospel release, "The Rock," and success on the Texas Music Chart with Texas artist/writer Jamie Richards, who took their songs “Wasted” and “Last Time ‘til the Next Time” inside the Top 10. His firefighter tribute song,“Don’t Call Me a Hero,” has received acclaim from the firefighting community around the globe, and “That’s a Winner,” his tribute to late St. Louis Cardinal’s announcer Jack Buck, remains a St. Louis baseball fan favorite. Two of his songs, “Make a Wish” and “Hometown Heroes,” were released as singles by Laura Bryna on her Equity Records project, and both had accompanying videos; “Hometown Heroes” was used by the Air National Guard in a national promotion that included both television and radio commercials. Jeff possesses an authentic gift for songwriting, and he sings with passion that makes his music satisfyingly void of routine mediocrity. His work as both a writer and performer will excite any fan of good honest music.
Jeremy Dean: Jeremy Dean's Nashville journey began in 1997, when he was discovered in his home state of Oklahoma, by Eddy Bolton tenor singer for the legendary Gospel music family, The Speers. Jeremy uprooted to Nashville and traveled extensively on the road until 1999, at which time his passion for songwriting led him to focus his direction in that regard.

Jeremy credits his professional evolution as a singer, songwriter, and producer to Dove award-winning and Grammy nominated producer, Joe Huffman. Since their first collaboration in 1997, Jeremy has become an accomplished voice in both studio and live performance. He is a member of the coveted Bluebird Cafe family and has appeared there regularly since 2010.  He has recorded with multi-faceted artists from various genres and performed with many, including Grammy artists Mike Farris, Lionel Cartwright, Jennifer Kinley, Taylor Hicks and other award-winning artists and musicians.

Jeremy's first commercially released song cut was in 2000, when Grammy nominated artist, Barbara Fairchild, recorded a Gospel song Jeremy wrote shortly after High School, titled, "The Table Grace Prepared,” which Barbara included on her project, “Forever Friend."

Creating around his passion for songwriting has also allowed Jeremy to be a part of various other projects, including songwriting for Lifeway Christian stores.  He also received his first motion picture break from director, Christopher Forbes in the 2016 release of "The War Riders," starring Parker Stevenson, a movie which included his song "When We Fight."

Jeremy's first international break included seven songs selected for a project called "Dirt Road," by South African artist, Jason Bradley. The project was named Country "Album of the Year" on March 12, 2015 in South Africa, with the additional songs on the project written by fellow South African, Gary Hannan.
Jon Robbin: Jon Robbin, a native Californian, moved to Nashville in 1984.  For years, he played guitar and wrote songs in a number of country bands in the San Francisco Bay Area.  In the late 1970's, he began sending his songs to publishers on Music Row, often receiving positive responses, or single song contracts.  After his arrival in Nashville, Jon worked at his trade, setting aside time for writing and recording demos.  In 1988, he met Barry and Jewel Coburn who were starting a new publishing company, Ten Ten Music.  Jewel invited him to submit his songs, which he did for the next several years.  In 1993, “I Guess You Had To Be There” was recorded by Lorrie Morgan, which went to the Top Ten.  He was signed to Ten Ten Music and went on to have more singles and album cuts, including "I Breathe In , I Breathe Out", his first #1 song.  Jon parted ways with Ten Ten in 2000.  For several years he wrote songs and had them pitched by an independent plugger.  In 2003 he joined Writer Zone Music as an owner and writer.
