Lindsay Ell

Lindsay Ell has been breaking barriers since the release of her debut album The Project. Billboard named The Project the best Country album of 2017, and credits her with finding “her artistic voice.” Her record debuted at #1 on the Nielsen Soundscan Country Chart, debuted Top 10 of the all genre charts. She was only the second female of 2017 to do so.

Lindsay plays all of the lead guitar parts on her studio recordings and is “a true triple threat” – USA Today

She released a duet, “What Happens in a Small Town,” with country star Brantley Gilbert in 2018, and has already surpassed 20M+ streams on Spotify alone

In 2018 alone, she toured with Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, and Sugarland, and appeared on the CMA Awards along with Luke Bryan, performed her hit “Criminal” on the CMT awards and the CCMA Awards.

Rolling Stone calls her one of the “10 country artists you NEED TO KNOW.”

“Country music’s NEW IT GIRL TENILLE TOWNES has one of the most distinct voices in country music” – Tennessean

Nominated for 4 CCMA awards. Debut Single “Somebody’s Daughter” is currently impacting country radio.

Marc E. Bassy

The Bay-Area-bred singer/songwriter, Marc E. Bassy, has stepped into his own power as an artist. After months of teasing fans all summer with new records and stunning, self-produced visuals, he unveils his sophomore album, ‘PMD,’ released in September of 2019 via his recently launched self-made, indie label New Gold Medal. His current outlook on life also offers the ideal springboard for the theme of his sophomore record: exploring the causes of depression and anxiety in modern culture while still delivering a mix of big pop songs and hip-hop-leaning gems about love and sex. “I don’t think there’s anyone that goes all the way from the hood to straight Top 40 radio like I do,” he says. “And that’s a hard thing to put in a box.”
