Independent singer-songwriter, Ryan Horne, brings his insatiable creative thirst to the table with his latest releases, ‘Mystery’ and ‘Nothing To Lose.’ 9 albums into his 15+ year career, Horne has arrived at a clear musical vision, and it is grand. With the success of each solo album, strong television placements in shows such as FX's Son’s of Anarchy, ABC’s Nashville, The WB's Hart of Dixie, MTV’s 16 & Pregnant, songs used in commercials, movies, syncs, and solid writing cuts on various artists records, Ryan has made it clear he will be around for a while as an accomplished and prolific artist/songwriter/performer.
In the ever-changing landscape of modern pop, Nathan Angelo shines
as a refreshing alternative, embracing the classic elements of popular music
and celebrating the backbeat of American tradition. As the revival of music
in the 60’s and 70’s brought together the heritage of the Great American
songbook, the flair of jazz and heartache of the Delta blues, Angelo
integrates these forms into his own music with great ease and delight. For
the past decade, Angelo has captivated audiences across the country with
his high-spirited live show and captured the imagination of a loyal following
through prolific songwriting, independently selling over 40,000 albums along
Angelo’s latest full-length album A Matter of Time (Aug 2017)
reflects his journey through the life-altering experiences of becoming a
father and facing his daughter’s rare, life-threatening metabolic disease. His
daughter received a liver transplant in Fall 2016, and Angelo’s latest release
wrestles with the aches of adversity and ultimately celebrates the beauty of
life and the hope he has for his daughter. A Matter of Time embraces the
soul, classic r&b and piano-pop of some of Angelo’s more prominent
influences -- Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Elton John -- while
fearlessly venturing into new sonic territory to compete with pop
contemporaries like Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake. Alongside his finest
songwriting to date, Angelo’s voice resounds as an irrefutable force as he
carries listeners to new places unfamiliar to the likes of modern pop music.
A Matter of Time debuted at #12 on the iTunes singer-songwriter
charts and has already garnered more than 650,000 streams on Spotify.
Dwayne Shivers is a folk ensemble from East Atlanta, GA, fronted by the songwriter and co-founder Micah Dalton — a locally grown, stylistically incongruent, zany, southern, racially ambiguous, brown folk singer.
Major music journalists and supervisors are already taking note. Jewly Hight, of NPR, The New York Times, and CMT Edge, wrote that Dwayne Shivers wrote "a batch of new-generation spirituals and fleecy, exquisite blues." And the band’s single “Waking Light,” a duet with Kyshona Armstrong) was featured in CBS’ “Criminal Minds,” ABC’s “Conviction,” and CBS’ “Salvation.” Dalton’s reinvention as Dwayne Shivers comes after spending more than 10 years touring, releasing six albums, and co-writing with marquee names such as Nate Campany (LP, Carly Rae Jepsen) with acclaim from publications like Paste and Obscure Sound.
“Buffered & Blest” will be released in early 2019.
