About Julia Capogrossi: While she is a fresh face on the country music scene, this petite firecracker songstress is gearing up to release a brand new single, Busch Light Budget, to country radio next month. With Memorial Day approaching, she is releasing the song digitally on Friday, May 26th to all her fans. This dynamite vocalist will also be a part of CMA Music Festival with performances and autograph signings throughout the week. With great poise and a go get ‘em attitude, this Stamford, Connecticut native is also scheduled to be performing at various places this summer for her Busch Light Budget Tour and visiting radio stations along the way in support of the single. http://www.JuliaCapogrossi.com
About James Hatem: This singer/songwriter has been writing music and playing live for more than a decade. He has been touring and performing his brand of pop music rooted in blues and jazz. He has played all over the country at arenas, festivals, colleges, and historic venues including Mennen Arena (NJ), The Stone Pony (NJ), Solar Expo Festival (NJ), World Café Live: Philadelphia (PA), Columbia University (NY), just to name a few. http://www.JamesHatem.com
About Amy Taylor: Finding inspiration from all melodies, Amy Taylor got her first taste of the spotlight singing on the radio at the age of five, and she was hooked. This Nashville-based singer/songwriter stays true to her voice which is deeply rooted in country, bluegrass, and southern gospel. Every song that she writes has a big piece of her in it. Whether inspired by a young girl she took under her wing because she saw so much of herself in her or a song that talks about her one true love, you will find Amy. She has performed all over Appalachia, the Mid-Atlantic, the South and other parts of the U.S. From large festivals like the International Bluegrass Music Association and Vandalia to venues like Mountaineer Opry House and Tootsie’s, she has played with many great musicians as well as some of her inspirations that she only dreamed of getting to sing with. http://www.AmyTaylorCountry.com
About Derek Andrew: This hot new country artist is garnering radio airplay on multiple stations across the US with the release of his latest single, Night We’re Gonna Forget, which is off his self-titled EP. Although Derek’s roots are anchored deep in traditional country music, he grew up with alternative rock dominating the airwaves. Now, with his rock-influenced country style, this Tennessee native hits close to home with his solid relatable lyrics and his up-tempo alternative edge. Inheriting a love of music from his father, Derek picked up his first instrument, an acoustic guitar, at age 12 and almost immediately began writing his own songs. His years working as an EMT have given him a “no quit” work ethic. His previous releases have earned him spots opening for artists including Jordan Rager and Glen Templeton, as well as his previous release All This Time reached #1 on the Independent Music Charts. http://www.DerekAndrewMusic.com
