"It sounds like Johnathan has written a soundtrack to a sequel film for 'That Thing You Do,' if there ever were to be one."  

He doesn’t hail from Liverpool or the sunny beaches of California, but Johnathan Pushkar is a modern power pop artist worthy of your toe-tapping time. In the words of Lord Rutledge’s Faster and Louder Blog, “Pushkar’s music is a reminder that there’s no shelf life for perfect melodies, relatable lyrical storytelling, and utterly endearing vocals. The future of power pop is a lot like it’s past, and we should all be glad!” Give Johnathan a minute of your time, and he will have you bopping to his catchy tunes. 

Growing up in Pittsburgh, PA, Johnathan’s biggest influences were the pop artists of the 1960s, primarily the "British Invasion.” Acts like The Beatles, Herman's Hermits, The Searchers, The Beach Boys, and The Monkees were in constant rotation for Pushkar growing up.  Later, he came around to “That Thing You Do!” and Fountains of Wayne, which infused a modern influence on his music.

Johnathan began playing guitar at age 10 and writing songs in his early teens. Though he dabbled with guitar lessons, he’s mostly self-taught. After graduating from the Department of Public Relations at Belmont University in Nashville, he stayed in Music City to further his music career.

"I have been blessed with the experiences and people I've met along the way; allowing me to write about my encounters and thoughts as I have experienced them. Whether my songs be about love, loss, redemption or the road of life, they come from the heart. Just as a painter paints on a canvas, a musician paints on silence. I hope to connect with my audience on some level; if I do, I will have done my job. I hope you enjoy, and I hope you know how very much I thank you all. I give you, my debut – Lovers and Friends.  Come on in, sit a spell, have a listen! Drop me a line.  No Bad Days! Troy Hanna"

"The country music scene has been turned into a country pop scene for some time now. With my music, I'm bringing back that old country which came from the legends of the past. I hope everyone who listens gets a sense of that authenticity." - Shawn Lee Stamps
 
From the first listen of Shawn Lee Stamps songs like "The Truth" I hear shades of Kristoferson and other legends who made their mark by keeping it sincere. Stamps without question has lived those songs.” - David Havens — KIX96 Radio/Music From Muscle Shoals Then Now & Forever

The story of Lazy Jane begins in June of 2016. Country singer-songwriter and guitarist, Tristen Smith, and singer-songwriter, Madison Bolin, hatched a plan to unite their creativity and form Lazy Jane.

A native of the Ohio River Valley, Tristen Smith began playing guitar and performing shows at the early age of 8 years old. He went on to play shows ranging from school functions and county fairs to playing in front of tens of thousands of people at stadiums such as PNC Park and festivals such as Jamboree in the Hills. Tristen moved to Nashville, Tennessee in the fall of 2010 to pursue his love of music. He has since graduated from Belmont University and works with accomplished songwriters, musicians, and industry professionals.

Just 6 hours west on I-70 in the small farm town of Casey, Illinois, Madison Bolin was making her own mark. Performing in everything from musicals to local festivals, Madison was quickly recognized for her powerful singing voice and stage presence. Just barely out of high school she began headlining shows at national and regional rodeos as well as her area's largest civic events. Upon moving to Nashville in the fall of 2011, Madison's songwriting had entered a new chapter inspiring her to change her direction to Alternative Rock and begin performing and releasing music as Madaux.

It was in this project that Madison had joined forces with Tristen as a songwriting and creative partner. From there the seed was sowed and Lazy Jane came to fruition. Tristen's outstanding guitar prowess and Madison's bluesy powerhouse vocals truly make this an unforgettable dynamic duo.

A Matador at heart with the soul of a romantic, Jesse Lopez's songwriting is seeped in his Mexican-Italian charm. His fusion of rock and country combined with the flair of a Nashville songwriter is apparent on his latest single “That Smile” - the first of five songs to be released, telling the story of a relationship from the first infatuation to bitter end.
Stubborn for success, overcoming turmoil and alcoholism instilled a determination in Lopez that translates beautifully into his music. Supporting security in schools, Jesse Lopez launched his non-profit “Saved By Wavs” on July 19 - ensuring the future and safety of our children by installing security systems in schools.
 
Jesse Lopez has been in Nashville full time since April 2019 after leaving the writing scene in LA for a more storytelling style of writing. Jesse's influences are Neal Young, Rob Thomas and the Zac Brown Band. I like to write songs that are close to my heart and all true stories. He immediately recorded his 5 song EP From Start to Finish under Century Music for a production deal and teamed up with KORE PR for the releases and radio tours while touring the country. Jesse did not stop his momentum during the quarantine as he self released a 2 song EP called Quarantine Made Me Do It where he wrote, recorded and shot the music video inside. He also started a virtual festival called Stream Fest with Freebird that is a fundraiser for our Nashville community featuring artists from all over the world. Jesse just finished up in the studio at Sound Kitchen with Dr. Ford on his next single that was co-written with Ryland Fisher (Whatcha Drinkin' Bout, Stephanie Quayle). He now has 3 records released under his belt and the new single ‘Way Past Words’ coming out on Friday 8.28.20! Jesse's music has been featured on the following locally.

Born in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Colby Dean comes from the honest roots of Western Montana. He picked up guitar at age 10, and was naturally drawn to composing original material. Dean first recorded his songs with a single microphone, filmed home-made music videos, and distributed the copies to schoolmates. In his early days, Dean learned how to pick the guitar, mandolin, and also became proficient in ukulele, bass, and drums. At age 18, Colby Dean moved to Nashville, Tennessee. There he became inspired by the legendary songwriters in the city. Dean spent his time in Music City performing, co-writing, and eventually recording and releasing his own original music. For the next four years, alternating cruise ships and touring, music had taken Dean through tours of Europe, Southeast Asia, North America, and the Caribbean and Coral Seas. His debut release, ‘Colby Dean EP’ has specifically received airplay in the Philippines, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia. COVID-19 brought Colby back to land. Again he has settled back into Music City, writing, recording and waiting until he can get back on the road.

Born and raised in Mount Airy North Carolina, Ericca Latza is a country singer-songwriter pursuing her music career in Nashville, Tennessee. Music and writing played a huge role in her young life. Most days you could find her after school behind a piano at lessons or in her room filling up notebooks with stories. She quickly developed a passion for singing when her parents enrolled her in classical voice lessons. It wasn't until the age of 12 that she realized she could combine her love of all three. One night her dad showed her how to play four chords on his acoustic Applause, and she hasn't looked back since. Though Mount Airy (better known as "Mayberry") was her home, Ericca moved to Wilmington NC in 2016. There, she spent two years developing herself as a performer. She played on many stages that are local favorites such as The Soundhouse, Goodfellas, and Hurricane Alley's. While growing as a solo artist, she also launched a band that played on stages across North Carolina. In January 2019, Ericca made the move to Nashville with the hopes of learning to become a well rounded songwriter and a professional in the industry. It was't long before both her songs and voice began to draw attention. Ericca became a signed artist with MC1 Nashville/Sony Orchard in July 2019. She works daily to develop her craft by writing for both herself and other artists. She plays writers rounds at many local venues such as The Commodore Grille, Belcourt Taps, and Red Line. Over the next year she will have three singles hitting radio waves and being released to all listening platforms. ​ ​ ​ "I just want to tell stories that people hear and go, "oh yeah, I get that". To me that means being as genuine and honest as possible. I mean, Im pretty in love with the fact that I get to wake up every day, create something that didn't exist the day before, and put it into the universe to see where it ends up. There's some kind of real magic found in that."
