Sonia Leigh is carving a unique path that winds in and out of country music. Her genre-jumping influences are on full display in her own music, which makes room for everything from pop melodies and country storytelling to the no-rules spirit of rock & roll. Back in her adopted hometown of Nashville, she's become a popular songwriter on Music Row, with a pair of #1 hits to her name — Zac Brown Band's "Goodbye in Her Eyes" and "Sweet Annie," both featured on the Grammy- winning album Uncaged. Leigh has proven to be a shapeshifter, releasing the timely dark pop anthems “Live Like Ghosts”, and "Spider In The Roses" The latest pair of singles featuring the mysterious Rob The Man. Her independent release “When We Are Alone” was featured in the hit television show Nashville and landed her a cameo. Her new independent release "Jack Is Back" out now is the first single to drop from her anticipated full length album due out fall of 2017.
The LiNE is comprised of Virginia Beach's Leland Grant and South Dakota native Hailey Steele. As soon as the two met in Nashville in 2008 while pursuing their own careers in country music, it was off to the races. The pair immediately started writing, and with the help of hit songwriter and producer Stephony Smith, The LiNE was formed. Their music has the harmonic influences of The Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel, vocal influences of Don Henley and Sheryl Crow, and the keep-them-guessing lyrics and almost tangible tension of Fleetwood Mac. They have appeared together on season 2 of NBC's The Voice, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and more. The LiNE has toured the country in many different ways, including a multi-city NASCAR tour that included singing the National Anthem live on ESPN. After the voice, The LiNE took a break to pursue their solo endeavors. During that time, Leland has garnered attention (breaking top40) as a producer, writer and has toured the world working with different artists. Meanwhile, Hailey has written songs for artists like Raelynn (Boyfriend) and Kalie Shorr (Fight Like A Girl) and been a part of CMT's Artist Discovery Program. The LiNE has continued to remain friends and create music together, and will be releasing a full length record of fan favorites as well as new material in 2017.
Jacob Thomas Jr.
Born and raised in Southern Lousiana, one listen and Jacob Thomas Jr. would have you figuring he spent his youth performing in cowboy bars and trucker dives. You'd only be half right. While Saturday nights were spent cavorting with sinners, Sunday mornings would find him, albeit hungover at times, entertaining saints.
Outfitted with only his acoustic guitar and his voice, Original Sin, Thomas' debut LP, is a collection of experiences. With the majority of songs being first takes, the lack of production invites the listener to pay close attention to what's being said, the stories being told, and the heartbreak being felt or dealt. Jacob never pretends to be the good guy, and his honesty, which can be unsettling at times, is ultimately revealing.
