Head-to-toe, Brooklyhn Woods exudes the qualities that make an artist truly great: talent, personal style, courage, optimism, and a confident sense of whom she is. A great love for her music along with a unique sense of fashion and style bring new challenges to her creative spirit, which she boldly meets each day. As a proud member of ASCAP and NSAI, Brooklyhn is influenced by many of the great singer/songwriters of country music’s past and present. She’s inspired by the vocal styling of Martina McBride and Carrie Underwood, while her writing style speaks to the intellectual that she is. Writing songs of empowerment, change, love, and hurt, she patterns her style after the likes of Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton.
For Megan Fowler, music has always been a thread that has woven through her life, becoming not only what she does, but also who she is. “Music has always been a part of me,” Megan says. “It’s always been something I’ve loved.” Sharing that music with others comes naturally to this petite but spunky brunette, who proves the adage that good things come in small packages. This time it’s a singer/songwriter/musician package, one who puts her heart into all of her performances.
Megan was chosen as the 2013 Country Female Artist of the Year. On November 8, 2015, she was again blessed to receive the Georgia Country Award for 2015 Country Female Artist of the Year. In 2014 Megan was honored to receive the GA Music Award for Country Female Artist of the Year. She was blessed again this year on August 15, 2015 to receive this award.
Few singer-songwriters can say they fell in love with music after being pulled on stage at a concert by music icon Amy Grant, but that is exactly what happened to Charleston, South Carolina’s Karoline Rhett. Even more impressive is the fact that she wasn’t intimidated by the moment even though she was only three-years-old when it happened!
Currently working alongside Nashville producers Stephen Leiweke and Britton Cameron, Karoline has entertained audiences at venues throughout Charleston and Nashville. She has used her music to deliver a powerful anti-bullying message as part of the nationally popular Teen Nation Tour. She has released two CDs to date: Stirring Rainbows debuted in 2010 and Melody was released in 2013. Karoline has also had the honor of being nominated for Female Artist of the Year by Nashville Universe, which also nominated her single, Save Your Heart, for Song of the Year.
Chelsea resides in Knoxville, Tennessee which she says is “an easy drive to Nashville, and an easy drive to her hometown.” After picking up the guitar and really developing her own sound, Chelsea has evolved into an indie-pop artist with a touch of country, fully from the “east Kentucky twang” embedded in her smooth, melodious tone.
Chelsea calls her fans her “Frands” because, she states, “I don’t really like the word “fans.” I like to get to know the people buying and playing my music. Those people are why I am where I am today, and those people are more than just fans to me. They’re everything. They’re my frands!” Considering herself blessed to get to do what she loves, Chelsea is ready for what the future holds.
It is extremely rare in today’s modern music industry to find a young artist willing to put in the time required to perfect their craft in addition to learning about marketing, fan engagement, music business, and all of the other things that don’t come with the lights and glamour of performing on stage. Having already performed at New York City’s legendary Apollo Theater (at the age of 9) and being mentored by the former manager of one of the world’s biggest stars, it is safe to say that Taylor Gayle of Plano, Texas isn’t your typical young artist. Her unique style of Soulful Pop Music influenced by Texas Country and Blues is already drawing praise and attention from Texas to New York.
For this young lady (a mere 11 years old) from the Lone Star State, her star in the sky couldn’t be shining any more brightly.
