New Jersey native Patrick Droney spent his formative years touring with the likes of BB King and James Brown, with features in prominent magazines and appearances on national television (People Magazine, Guitar World, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon). After attending Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU, Droney moved to Los Angeles to focus on songwriting, subsequently placing songs in a number of major network television shows and attracting the attention of leading musical instrument manufacturer, Fender (FMIC), as one of their go-to artist ambassadors. In the fall of 2016, Droney relocated to Nashville and immersed himself in Music City's songwriting community. In 2017, the now-26-year-old signed with G Major Management (Thomas Rhett, Danielle Bradbery) as well as Kobalt for publishing. The independent Kobalt/AWAL artist released his 5-song self-titled EP on August 3, 2018, produced by Droney and Ian Fitchuck. In its first week of release, the first song from his 2018 EP “Stand and Deliver” logged over 100,000 streams pushing it into the Top 10 on Spotify’s Viral 50 in the US leading to a sold out show at Nashville's legendary Exit/In.

Molly Kate Kestner
Molly Kate Kestner may be new to the Los Angeles music scene, but she is by no means an amateur. The 21-year-old singer-songwriter's gift for writing paired with her soulful, powerhouse voice make it clear she is wise and talented beyond her years, and have allowed her to build a strong following.
Kestner was first propelled into the spotlight when her song she wrote in high school, "His Daughter," an emotional ballad she recorded for her friends and family, went viral. The video earned over 1.5 million views in less than two weeks [and it currently sits at 15 million] and got her noticed and signed by Atlantic Records - something the rural Minnesota native had only dreamed of.
Molly moved to Los Angeles in February 2016 and has been busy writing songs for herself and other established artists while making her way through the LA, London, and Nashville writing circuits. She released her first song "Good Die Young" on December 2nd, amassing 800K+ streams in just its first week. In the coming months, Kestner will continue performing and will release new music as well as a mini album in the spring of 2017.
