Katy McAllister was born in Fort Worth, Texas but raised near Denver, Colorado.  Born into a musical family, Katy was passionate and driven to pursue her natural talent from a very young age.  She started learning piano at age 4.  Encouraged by her family, after they had witnessed Katy’'s genuine love of singing, she joined the church choir.  She continued with choir throughout most of school and even into college, developing what has become one of her best and most unique assets, her voice.

Maddie Wilson. is an accomplished musician who plays guitar, piano and has a gift for writing and creating melodies that captivate the joy of life. Maddie is a real country girl from a small Utah town at the base of the Wasatch mountains, she loves riding horses and motorbikes

Daisy Mallory began writing songs and playing the guitar at the early age of 9. After stepping on stage for the first time when she was twelve years old, Daisy began performing at every opportunity. In 2006, she attended Seth Rigg's Vocal Camp in Los Angeles, where she made his masters class. In 2007, she began booking gigs and playing venues all around her hometown in Arizona. When Daisy was 15 years old, her and her family made their first visit to Nashville, Tennessee, where she played The Bluebird Cafe for the first time. They instantly fell in love with everything that Nashville has to offer. Great people, beautiful scenery, and of course the crazy music scene. In March of 2010, after visiting every month for over a year, Daisy and her family made the move to Nashville

Nikki Boon, like  so many, begins with a dream.  As a child, she had but one desire: to sing, sharing her voice with anyone who would listen.  But what started as a young girl’s fairly-tale dream quickly blossomed into a stirring passion – one that she would stop at nothing to realize.  Looking back, she is  not even sure she had a choice; as romantic as it may sound, she still can’t shake the feeling that singing is what she was made to do. Growing up in Grandville, Michigan, she took every opportunity made available to her to use her voice, singing at her church, competing in talent shows, starring in musicals – She even started a vocal group with two of her best friends called “The God Squad”.  She also began studying piano at the age of seven;  Music was the air she breathed.


Tiffany Alvord,  is destined to be the next huge hit in the music industry. She is one of the few artists on youtube that is quickly gaining well-deserved fame. Tiffany has over 100,000+ youtube subscribers, her most watched video, a cover of Demi Lovato’s This is Me, has collected over 2,000,000 views. Tiffany is a starlet who is captivating the attention of thousands and thousands, and maybe even millions of viewers on sites like youtube and myspace. While, all of this is truly exciting and incredible, what sets Tiffany apart from the rest of the crowd is her ability to write and compose her own music. Tiffany is a beautiful singer-songwriter who through youtube and myspace has been able to share her songwriting talents with the world. With cute catchy love tunes like, “I Wanted to Say…” or songs about following your dreams such as, “My Dream” Tiffany’s songwriting talents are in the same vein as Corinne Bailey Rae. Tiffany’s lighthearted music will have you clapping, tapping your toes, and singing along to the tune. Also, with being highly skilled in piano and guitar one might wonder where in the world a talent like this developed. The answer to that question is quite simple, it developed from a young girl who has always dreamed of becoming a true musician in today’s world. Tiffany Alvord’s dream continues to shine through like the sun on a cloudy day as each day brings something new.

Veronica Ballestrini  The face of Country Music was undergoing a profound shift in direction the year Veronica Ballestrini was born. That year was 1991, and the Country genre was rapidly evolving into a more accessible, Pop-friendly format in the millennium's last decade. A new generation was growing up on a steady diet of superstars like Garth, Shania, LeAnn and Faith. Now, some 20 years later, the guise of Country is changing once again, this time behind the youthful exuberance of female artists like Taylor, Carrie, Kellie and... Veronica.  at the innocent age of 13, when Veronica first picked up a guitar and unknowingly logged on to a career. The bubbly young singer-songwriter, known to many simply as 'V,' had modest aspirations way back in 2005."My first goal was just to get to Nashville and record an album," she says matter-of-factly. "Now that I've accomplished that, I want that music to get heard by as many people as possible. I've had so many people tell me that my music has helped them out or helped them to achieve their own goals, so it means a lot to me to be able to affect someone's life like that." Part of Veronica's success comes from her undeniable Pop-Country crossover appeal. She points out that while she considers her music to be Country, that doesn't mean that it can't have its own spin on the genre. "It's just a different style of Country music," she says. "Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood - they all have their own style."
