Straight outta Nashville, We welcome Karen Waldrup!

Waldrup is a BMI songwriter, a member of NARAS/The Recording Academy (the “Grammy” organization), the CMA’s, and has partnered with Mission of Hope: Haiti.

Waldrup has been featured in Rolling Stone Magazine, People Magazine, Netflix, The Hallmark Channel, Bravo TV, Facebook Artist of the Day, NASCAR ESPN Live, the NFL Experience Superbowl XLVII, CMT, Fox, and hundreds of other outlets world-wide. She has scored 12 Nashville Industry Music Awards and won the 2019 Torch Award from the Keith Whitley Fingerprint on Country Music Awards. Waldrup was named 2023 Top 5 Artist to Watch by Country Evolution and has released her new album Kendall County Road for worldwide streaming May 2023.

Waldrup’s debut album JUSTIFIED, produced by multi-award winner Garth Fundis, known for his work with Trisha Yearwood, Don Williams, and Alabama, debuted on four Billboard Album Charts. “Sometimes He Does,” one of the songs featured on JUSTIFIED, was included in Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the Top 10 Country and Americana songs of the week immediately following its release. Music Row icon and historian Robert Oermann deemed the track a “Disc of The Day,” adding that Waldrup is a “real deal country singer.”

Throughout her career, Waldrup has played music in over 15 countries all over the world and all across America. Karen Waldrup bridges the gap between classic country sounds and modern day innovation.

Waldrup recently released her new album Kendall County Road produced by Grammy-award winning producers Paul Worley and Biff Watson. The album includes a song written with WW2 D-Day Veteran, Jim Martin, a feature with Wendy Moten on “Nothing Is Impossible,” and the title track "Kendall County Road," which reminisces about missing home and family.

Coming straight outta Wilmington Delaware, we welcome Olivia Rubini!

While American pop rock recording artist Olivia Rubini has been releasing music since the age of 15, her style throughout the years has evolved and transformed into a deeply personal reflection of her life and growth. Her dynamic pop voice has matured along with her writing style, which embodies catchy, clever, sophisticated pop lyrics with hints of classic rock mysticism. Inspired by Fleetwood Mac, Coldplay, Harry Styles, Sigur Rós, Miley Cyrus, The 1975, and a plethora of musical styles, she's cultivated a genuine and personal style of her own. Her years of vocal evolution & musical self discovery have lead her to be a contestant on Season 25 of NBC's "The Voice", airing February-May 2024.

Even at the young age of 15, Rubini's extensive style in music was represented through her selection of cover songs released on Soundcloud, which ranged from Rihanna to the Beatles. Since the release of her debut single in 2016, she has released 10 singles varying in style, genre, & attitude. Throughout her continued experience as a recording artist, Rubini has gained popularity by being organically placed on numerous Spotify playlists including, "Discover Weekly", "USA Live" and more. Her songs have been used by Youtube and Instagram influencers garnering millions of views.

Julia Roome is an American Songwriter and Singer, who has been performing since she was in second grade.  She released her first original single “Steel Glass” when she was 10, and then climbed her way up to number 9 on the ITunes Charts with her first original EP “I’m Gunna” at age 11.

At age 13, Julia was the youngest contestant on this season 24 of NBC's "The Voice".  Julia may be the youngest in the competition, but she has already accomplished so much in her life. Her recent chair turn on “The Voice” Season 24, and currently airing, has her on Team Niall Horan.  She’s also gigging several times a month, singing the national anthem, and has performed in both an off Broadway play and many regional ones as well.  Julia only lives a little over an hour from New York City, so she’s had an opportunity to sing at the Friars Club, as well as amateur night at The World Famous Apollo Theatre (where she’s won twice!). Keegan Ferrell, a “Voice” Season 20 Voice contestant, noticed her on social media when her original EP reached number 9 on the the iTunes charts, prompting him to work with Julia to continue building a portfolio of original music.  Their first song together “Childhood” garnered a massive amount of attention and has the most streams to date. When Julia isn’t gigging or recording, she’s writing new original music.  
Everyday People (EDP) is a powerful young band of vocalist, focused heavily on harmony from both vocals and horns. Like the name sake from the Sly and the Family Stone song, EDP plays music with good vibes, sings songs about coming together, and caring for one another.

Led by vocalists Anna Burgess, Brian McDaniel, and Kagan Nuss, EDP plays a variety of popular music from many genres but puts a touch of their own flavor on their song choices, reinventing some altogether.

Formed by McDaniel in late 2020, EDP is comprised of Anna Burgess on vocals and guitar, Brian McDaniel on vocals and guitar, Kagan Nuss on vocals and keyboard, Dan McDonald on bass and vocals, John Ragonese on saxophone, Bob Carrico on trombone, and Geoff Frazier on drums.
Cecilia Grace
Cecilia Grace is an award winning, nationally touring, singer-songwriter based in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Audiences have compared Cecilia’s raw vocals to mega stars like Lady Gaga, Alanis Morisette, and Lainey Wilson. She plays “a little bit of everything,” covering genres from 70s classic rock to early 2000s country and everything in between.

When it comes to her originals music, she takes writing inspiration from master songwriters like Kacey Musgraves and Julia Michaels, whose blunt lyrics embody, “you took the words right out of my mouth."

Her vocal styling is bold, clear, and angelic; her guitar playing unique. On stage, audiences are treated to magnetic, star-quality entertainment. Off stage, she loves to make new friends!
