From Newcastle, OK, Kylie has been writing songs since she was twelve years old. Her single “Break Things” was released April 2020 and is one-part cautionary tale, one-part love song, and one-part personal anthem. It’s an upbeat song that exemplifies how we’ve all felt about our personal relationships at some point in our lives.
Kameron Marlowe – “Sober as a Drunk” 3:30

North Carolina native Kameron Marlowe used his life experiences to boost his music. “I had things I wanted to say,” said Marlowe, and through weeks of writing and soul searching, he used his pain to create something amazing. Once featured on the hit tv-show “The Voice” Marlowe used the experience to boost his musical career and began committing himself to his craft. The oxymoron featured in his song “Sober as a Drunk” shows the dichotomy of emotions experienced during a breakup. It’s a feeling that we can all relate to.
Ian Munsick – “Me Against the Mountain” 3:20

Born in Wyoming, the Rocky Mountain musician offers a mix of traditional bluegrass and modern musical stylings through his songs. “Me Against the Mountain” automatically captivates with the simple strums of a banjo but the magic continues as he continues his story with deep visual cues.
