Brendan James, Tony Lucca

Brendan James’ third album, Hope In Transition, marks a shift from blind ambition to a new optimism. After a transformative summer and some serious soul-searching, the LA-based singer-songwriter had a creative rebirth. On July 10, 2012, James released the most hopeful and invigorating collection of pop-rock in his critically-acclaimed, seven-year career.

“It’s hard to imagine after twenty years in the entertainment business that this is just chapter two,” an excited Tony Lucca says of his first music post his game-changing run on the hit NBC series The Voice. For Lucca chapter one included seven albums in a more than 20-year run in show business that started on the Mickey Mouse Club.

Lucca firmly believes all of those experiences led him to teaming with coach Adam Levine on The Voice. “The further along in The Voice contest I got it felt like there was no denying my whole life’s work led me to that moment. I know that sounds extremely cliché, but for me specifically it really was kind of that, everything from the former relationship, having worked with Christina [Aguilera] on The Mickey Mouse Club to just the experience of having spent a lot of time in film and television and getting on a big stage and knowing what things like camera blocking and hitting your mark meant. Just little things that all add up to an easier time on the show like that,” he said. “That being said, it also felt like after the show, whatever was next, was supposed to happen.”

What was supposed to happen is a new beginning for Lucca, who is signed to Adam Levine’s 222 Records, and set to release his first EP, With the Whole World Watching, July 16, right before he hits the road as one of the support acts on Levine and his Maroon 5 band mates’ sold-out run across America on the Honda Civic tour.

Vicci Martinez

Vicci Martinez isn't worried about the rules.

The singer-songwriter continually goes against the grain both musically and lyrically. She doesn't adhere to guidelines of what pop music is supposed to be or how it should be presented. Given her penchant for writing honest, heartfelt songs, she doesn't have to either. When she hits the studio or the stage, she nods to soulful folk and classic rock with an immortal R&B groove beneath everything. On her forthcoming debut album for Universal Republic Records, "VICCI," the world will get to see Vicci for who she is, and it might just be a better place because of it.
