Tanner Azzinnaro is a pop/hip-hop artist based out of Nashville, TN. He has found much success throughout his years of performing and songwriting, and has worked with and gained the attention of many well established music industry heads. Tanner's goal through his music is to tell his own life story and faith walk so as to help others better understand their own lives. Music is available across all streaming services #takeoff
"Music is a unique language, but one that everyone can understand and relate to." says Ashley, "It bridges the gap between words that can't be said and feelings that can't be evoked. To be able to speak that language and share that experience with people is the most incredible feeling."
Ashley Leone is a Philly native whose hometown musical roots have influenced the R&B/Pop sound that defines her. Her extensive touring had her performing at nearly every venue in the Philadelphia area including the TLA, World Café Live, and multiple sold out shows at the legendary Tin Angel.
Relocating to Nashville in 2014 was another big step for this 20 year old. "I'm constantly inspired by the world around me and my songs grow from a combination of personal experiences or something as simple as noticing something in nature around me," Ashley said. "Some of the artists I gravitate towards for inspiration include Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill, Beyoncé, John Legend, Alicia Keys and Ed Sheeran."
Songwriting is a very personal experience for Ashley. "My songwriting and live performances allow me to express my feelings in a way that in my own personal life, I would usually keep at arm's length." Ashley continues, "It is the best therapy for me to deal with my own emotions, share these feelings with others and make a human connection on a different level."
Ashley's first single, "Spinning," was chosen as the feature track for a nationwide campaign for Justice clothing stores. Earlier this year, she was one of five chosen out of 18,000 songwriters as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriters Competition.
2016 will see the release of her debut EP, SugarCoated.
When Ashley isn't writing, recording, and playing live shows you will most likely find her in just about any coffee shop around town.
Kessler is a gifted guitarist who pens soulful, confessional tunes with the depth of early Fiona Apple and the rough-hewn neo-soul textures of John Mayer. His singing by turns evokes the indie vibe of Ben Folds and the searching colors of early Paul Simon records. While Kessler’s precocious musicianship invites comparisons to the teenage Steve Winwood, his homespun songwriting is more akin to Jackson Brown or Amos Lee, while his breezy R&B inflections recall Dave Mason or Eric Clapton’s early solo work.
