Aaron Carter began his music career at age seven, singing lead for the band "Dead End". Two years later he made his first solo appearance when he was nine, opening for the Backstreet Boys at their concert in Berlin Germany, March 1997. The performance was followed by a record contract and, in the fall of 1997, Aaron Carter released his first hit single, "Crush On You".

Claim to Fame
Pop Singer, shot to super stardom at the age of 9, receiving international fame after releasing his first single "Crush On You" from his first album "Aaron Carter".
It's difficult to remember a time that this bubbly, young pop star wasn't singing. Her earliest musical memories are of rushing home from school, grabbing her inflatable microphone, and jumping up on stage...or well, the couch. Her infatuation with music continued through middle school and high school, where she sang in her school chorus and played multiple sports including soccer, lacrosse, and volleyball. She taught herself to play guitar the summer before she started college, and declared herself a singer/songwriter. The ever-growing entertainer, Brie enrolled in FAU as a theatre major where she is currently a student. She would go on to write and record with the amazing Alex Cantrall (JoJo, Dru Hill,) and emerge from his studio with 2 solid commercial tracks. She immediately shot her first music video for one of those tracks entitled 'Dive In.' She's played in front of lively crowds, record executives, and even Donald Trump, but her most rewarding gigs are sometimes the ones with an audience of one. As a part of the non-profit, Musicians On Call, Brie visits patients in hospitals and plays her songs to lift their spirits. Her incredible energy and ever-present smile are almost as infectious as those catchy, hook driven songs.
The Real Hooks
Driven by the clever, uplifting, high energy songs by charismatic lead singer/guitarist Kyle Hooks and family patriarch Nicky Hooks, who is also the five piece band’s bassist, The Real Hooks have been lighting up audiences of multiple generations in their hometown of Pensacola, Florida and beyond since 2009 with dynamic performances and infectious songs that Kyle says are all about “putting smiles on people’s faces.”
The Real Hooks have averaged 35-40 shows a year, including performing at numerous festivals and opening for popular acts including Go Radio, Hawthorne Heights and Allstar Weekend. The Hooks family’s powerful musicality, irresistible songs and soaring harmonies draws an inspiring mix of screaming young female fans and parents who get equally wrapped up in the fun and excitement.
Quickly emerging on the national scene, The Real Hooks, whose lineup also features Raleigh (drums and vocals), Nick (vocals) and Maggie (keyboards and vocals), enjoyed out of the box radio airplay success with their 2012 single “Coming After Your Love”.
This year, The Real Hooks will build on this momentum with the release of their highly anticipated debut EP, a six track set that includes a mix of pop-rockers (the playful sing-along “Everybody Up,” the fiery, jangling declaration “OK I Love You”), a soulful, harmony driven romance (“Fallin”), thoughtful but pointed break up songs (“The Game Is Over,” “Another Nameless Face”) and a hilarious, tongue in cheek ode to “Taylor Swift” and her revolving door of romances.
