Get to know the artists and their music below!
Raised in Southern California and rooted in Country music, Anna Vaus blends her West Coast cool with refreshing hooks and unmistakably relatable lyrics. Her “honest girl pop country,” is simultaneously personal and universal.
Anna’s recent releases include her sophomore EP, Wild Honey, which she co-produced with Luke Laird, and the single, “No One’s Fault,” which she co-wrote with JP Saxe and co-produced with Kevin Monahan. Her latest release, "Didn't Even Date" is out now.
Named to CMT's 2021 Listen Up roster and 2020 Next Women of Country class, the Lindsay, Ontario native was named a country artist to watch by Pandora, Pop Culture, Sounds Like Nashville, and more. Madison Kozak Returns with "a voice that glows and songwriting capability that resonates" (Sounds Like Nashville) on her first new music releases in over two and a half years. "Loud House" and "What Does Sorry Mean" are as impactful as the artist behind them.
Dan Wilson is a singer, songwriter, musician, producer, and visual artist. His songwriting resume includes "Closing Time," "Not Ready To Make Nice" (co-written with The Chicks), and "Someone Like You" (co-written with Adele.) He won a Grammy Award for "Closing Time" as well as a Grammy for Album of the Year for Adele's 21 album.
The New Mexico native made the move to Nashville at 18. Newton graduated from Belmont University in 2019 with a Bachelor's of Arts in Songwriting. She now tours across the U.S. as she writes and records new projects. She was also a featured contestant on season 2 of NBC's "Songland."
Twinnie delivers vibrant lyrics and effervescent melodies on her bold new tracks "Welcome To The Club," One Heart," "Dying Inside," and "Something Or Somebody." A fresh voice for the outliers, Twinnie has created a musical refuge for people on the fringe. She has been a creative fixture in Nashville since 2015.
Ben Roberts is a songwriter based in Nashville. He is active in the duo Carolina Sory and has solo music under the stage name "goldminer."
