Former Warner Bros. & Big Machine recording artist. One of the best baritones in Nashville…just as good on ballads as he is on uptempo honky tonkers.

Alan Johnson

Alan may have the most versatile voice of any singer I’ve ever worked with in Nashville. Well over a two-octave vocal range. Alan can sing anything from Vince Gill to Rascall Flatts to Bon Jovi. Also great on gospel and CCM music.

Ronnie KimballRonnie Kimball

If Collin Raye and Don Henley had a lovechild he would sound like Ronnie! If you want a voice with a little edge to it then Ronnie’s the guy…ballad or uptempo…he’s got the tenor chops to pull it off.

Jason Eustice

Jason is another great singer with a wide range of styles. From heartfelt ballads to ‘Jason Aldean-style’ rockers he can make it work. With a more than two-and-a-half octave vocal range Jason can also cover R&B / Pop styles with great ease.

Melissa DuVallMelissa DuVall

One of the up-and-coming demo singers in Nashville. Melissa has a true country voice with strong southern roots. Mix in a little blues and it’s a powerful combination on ballads and uptempo songs.

Julie has one of the most emotive voices in town. She can rip your heart out on ballads but can also groove on fast songs too. Her credits include singing background vocals for Sheryl Crow & Willie Nelson on the CMA awards.

Lydia was keyboardist/vocalist for Bering Strait, a Country band from Russia which arrived in Nashville about a decade ago. Very classy vocal sound with perfect pitch. Great on Country or songs that are a bit more pop-oriented.

This woman is the real deal…move over Gretchen Wilson! Leslie can lay it down like few singers in Nashville. Is she Country? Is she Rock? I don’t care…it ALL sounds good!
