Joél Hernandez Reinvents Guitar Driven Pop

Prodigiously gifted singer, songwriter and guitarist Joel Hernandez is just 20, but the pop-rock wunderkind has already absorbed a lifetime of music. Growing up in El Campo, Texas, he soaked up the region’s diverse soundscapes. Through his multi-generational musician family, he learned how to be a thoughtful and emotive songwriter. Joel’s debut is rife with standout tracks. On the bluesy pop rocker “So Young,” he shares a wise-beyond-his-years perspective on young relationships. “That’s about living in the moment with the people in your life because, as bitter sweet as it is, you know they’ll leave your orbit soon,” Joel says. The amorous “It’s Only You” smoothly melds urban pop to atmospheric rock. The after-the-love-is-gone ballad “Where Are You Now?” tugs at your heartstrings and sticks in your ears like a Top 40 hit from the future. The anthemic “Spirit Of Summer” celebrates being young with irresistible pop-rock hooks a [...]

Ashley J writes songs on the walls and discovers her perfect fit

At first glance, Ashley J exudes a vivacious and seductive youthful energy that’s wrapped in her free-flowing blonde locks, natural good looks and voluptuous body frame. However, beneath her eye-pleasing visual facade, she has a fascinatingly diverse background, artistically and musically and packs a wallop of a voice that fuses an infectious blend of vocal dexterity, moods and range. She tempers her vocal prowess with poignant lyrics and a kindred soul as an emerging songwriter/singer. And it’s all aptly and full exposed on her new pop single, “Unbreakable.” The song was recorded at his famed Tarpan Studio complex in San Rafael, CA.

Opera singer Nadia E, Puts Her years of Training to use in the Service of Rock ‘n Roll!

Nadia was born in northeastern New Jersey. At eleven years old, her family moved to a beach community in southern California. At her new school, Nadia was assigned choir as her elective class. Excelling at singing, she began private lessons in opera.

Heather Whitney turns tragedy into triumph

Singer-Songwriter, Heather Whitney comes from an itty-bitty, one-red-light town deep in the pines of Southeast Texas, where the mosquitoes are big, but Heather’s love for music is bigger!

Heather’s new album, “Moving on” is full of love, heartbreak, and moving on. This album is everything she has lived through, felt, and overcame, while in the studio. “Just because you’re working towards your dreams, doesn’t mean that the world stops spinning, and hardships won’t find you,” says Heather. “What gave me strength to complete my album, was knowing that I was not alone, & that someone else out there would hear these songs, relate to them, and possibly gain some healing like I did. We have to stick together.”

Heather spent the last year flying back and forth from Newton, TX to Nashville, TN, writing, hand-picking songs for [...]

Molly Kruse… The Luckiest Woman in Music Today!

Molly Elizabeth Kruse was born on 8/8/88 in Berkeley, CA, the luckiest day of the century according to Chinese tradition.

“I was the first baby born at Alta Bates Hospital at 5:58 in the morning, so a bunch of newscasters featured my parents and me on TV when I was about 15 minutes old! We still have the tape buried somewhere, I think,” she laughs.

Encouraged by her parents to work tirelessly on her voice, she began vocal lessons at age 12, leading to competing in vocal competitions, lead roles in musicals, and singing in school choir. This led to a degree in Theatre and Sociology at Indiana University. Molly moved to LA in 2012, getting her start in short films, commercials, and TV roles, but decided to dedicate herself completely to music.

Her first break came in early 2014 when she met renowned film orchestrator, Randy Kerber, which led to a meeting with Glen Ballard, the 6-time Grammy winner who produced Alanis Morisette [...]
