Samuel Herb is a singer/songwriter originally from Jacksonville, FL. In his songs, Herb brings the storytelling aspect of Country music, to the sound of Motown and Soul. His signature Bow Tie is an unforgettable stamp that compliments his performance and personality. Herb's new single "Dirty." is out now and debuted in the Top 10 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. Samuel has played on famous stages like The Bluebird Cafe, Whiskey Jam, and Toosties; as well as sharing the stage with artists like: Rodney Atkins, Michael Ray, Jimmie Allen, Adam Doleac, and Drew Baldridge. In 2015 Samuel Herb was featured in American Songwriter Magazine finishing second in their lyric contest.

Nate Fredrick was born in Springfield Mo and began to teach himself guitar at the age of 12. He discovered a passion for music after an accident left him bedridden at the age of 20 with his jaw wired shut. At this time he began to compose his own music. His bluesy alternative Americana style stems from many different influences, such as Ryan Bingham, Otis Redding and Van Morrison. Such influences give a unique styling to his music, which is tough to claim in a single genre. With interesting chord progressions and alternate tunings, coupled with worn vocals, the music of Nate Fredrick is nothing short of unique. He has shared the stage with The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Chris Janson, Ben Gallaher, Easton Corbin, REO Speedwagon, and Pat Benatar. Nate Resides in Nashville,TN. His debut album "Outside The Lines" was released in February 2017 and reached number #8 on the iTunes singer/songwriter charts. Latest single “Go On and Leave Me” released November 2018.

With singer-songwriter, Nashvillian roots, Madeline James keeps lyrics and melody at a forefront. With synth-y 80's pop fused with modern pop influences, Madeline hopes that her music can make people want to dance, sing along with, and relate to.
