Adam Wakefield

Adam Wakefield is a singer-songwriter who has secured his place in Nashville, TN, but is far from the typical artist one may expect to find in the Country Music Capital of the World.

Growing up in New Hampshire, Adam didn’t intend to become an artist. In fact, his original goal was to become a musician. He began to play piano when he was younger and in search of a hobby, especially one at which he believed he could excel. Adam’s intuitions were correct, and he continued to play piano until it was time to make a musical choice and hone in on a certain genre as a pianist. Rather than choosing the predictable classical route, the man who has become celebrated for his uniqueness in his artistry opted for jazz.

The desire to continue his piano-playing in the jazz circuit lasted about one year into college, and that was when Adam realized he wanted to make a larger contribution to music than the one he was destined to at that point. Striving for something more, he decided to join his brother, who was in Baltimore, and put together a band. While juggling a full-time job in construction during the day and band practice at night, Adam was also carving out some time to sharpen his skills as a songwriter. Channeling an eclectic group of artists from Stevie Wonder to John Prine to Willie Nelson, Adam would allow whatever phase he was in musically to drive him to create pieces reflective of his revolving interests.

Eventually Adam’s personal life would send him on a one-way trip to Nashville, where he decided to explore what the local music scene had to offer. He parted ways with his Baltimore band and entered Music City with no expectations, other than to enjoy playing music in a town that envelops the culture. As the old saying goes, when you stop looking for it, it will come, and that is exactly what happened with Adam’s career.

He put together a bluegrass band, started playing around town, and occasionally went out on the road with artists. While playing a gig downtown one night, somebody from NBC’s The Voice approached him and asked him to audition for the show. The audition led to a successful run, and his newfound name recognition was the catalyst for him to pursue a solo career.

Adam is now digging into his personal songwriting catalog, introducing his original material to the fan base he quickly built, and is taking his music out on the road as support for major headlining acts. He released his debut self-titled EP in July 2017, and is currently working on a Singer/Songwriter project set for release in 2018.

What certainly can be said about Adam Wakefield when it comes to the music industry is that he approached it uniquely, he entered it humbly, and he thrives in it confidently. It is those qualities that make Adam a standout, influential performer in a town that celebrates musicality and yearns for the type of atypical twist he brings to the country music format.

Casey James Prestwood

If the late night scene on Broadway Street in Nashville, Tennessee could talk, they'd sing you a Casey James Prestwood tune. Drenched in the honest twang that made Gram Parsons and Hank Williams household names, the classic crooner's carefree vocals and careful guitar playing feel more like country than a worn-in pair of cowboy boots.

Buck'd Off

Buck'd Off is a band comprised of the vocal duo of brothers Brian and Darin Husmann (also acoustic guitar). Buck’d Off’s incredible talent is due to an incredible mix of diverse musicians! Stand-up comedian Alvaro “Alvy” Perez is backing vocals and plays acoustic guitar, the amazing Justin Thielke makes his lead guitar “gently weep”, Alex “Coozy” Cusimano beats the hell outta the drums, Devin “D-Smack” Montagne plays on bass, and last…But NOT least Michael “Chippendale” Schneider magically strokes the keys while he makes his pipes sing!

While all are accomplished individual performers, it took a tragic event to lead to the group's genesis.

Darin Husmann started performing in music at the age of 10 in the Bismarck All-City Boys' Choir. His true call to music wouldn't find him again until 10 years later. In college, Darin was invited to sing to the Administrative Assistant for the Morning Show on radio station KGLL FM 96.1 "The Eagle", in honor of Secretary's Day. After singing live on the air, the listeners' overwhelming response led the station to form a 14-week segment called the "Make My Day" segment, starring Darin, singing modified cover songs to fit special events. In 1998, he became lead singer in the KGLL FM 96.1 band. In October 2018, Darin recorded 5 songs in Nashville, TN, and will soon be releasing his album “Lamenting The Stars”.

Brian Husmann's accomplishments include: Top 5 National Finalist for the Mickey Mouse Club in the same class as Brittany Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Christina Aguilera; three years performing with the Arvada Actor's Guild; several first place finishes in local and regional singing competitions; and 5 years living and performing in Nashville, TN - at establishments such as Legends Corner, The Stage, and Tootsie's.

In December 2007, their Mother (Sandra Husmann - "Sandy") unexpectedly collapsed at the entrance of the "Mall of America" while Christmas shopping. Darin and Brian caught a red-eye flight to Minneapolis, MN, where Sandy was in Intensive Care. Their Mother was completely unresponsive. When Brian and Darin sang to her, her heart rate increased, and she showed signs of brainwave activity. She continued to live for 2 more days. and Momma's Pride was born.

Sandy never got to see them perform on stage together, so every time they perform, it is in her honor.

- In 2008, Momma's Pride rocked the stage of the world famous "Grizzly Rose" during the NBC audition for the "Nashville Star" television show. They then went on to the National Finals held in Washington D.C., and advanced through two days of cuts, to the final elimination. This put them in the top ten duos in the United States, out of over 50,000 applicants.
- In 2011, 2012, 2014, and 2015 Buck'd Off won Nebraska State Championships for the Texaco Country Showdown, the largest country music talent search in America. LeAnne Rhymes, Chris Young, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley all got their start in this competition.

In April of 2017, Buck’d Off created the “Fight The Flames” Music Festival for the Lake McConaughy fire victims, and raised over $42,000 dollars for fire victim relief!

Buck'd Off's ultimate goal is to make an audience smile, and enjoy their greatest passion...singing and playing great music.
