Kirstie Kraus is a feisty powerhouse that lays it all out each time she takes the stage. Her sound is a blend of modern country-pop with a mix of blues, a little funk and 80's rock tones. Some of Kirstie’s biggest influences are LeAnn Rimes, Elton John, Phil Collins, Amy Grant, Gloria Estefan, Shania Twain, and Faith Hill.

Kirstie moved to Nashville in October 2017 and jumped right into the creation of her first record after touring the Midwest with her previous rockin’ country band Thirsty Jones. Kirstie has teamed up with EMC2 Records (Nashville, TN) and Sound Kitchen (Franklin, TN) for a full length record release in 2020.

The anticipated 'Yes You Can' album which was partly funded by Kickstarter backers from her native state of Wisconsin is eleven tracks in length and enriched with some of Nashville's finest players including Rich Redmond (Drums, Jason Aldean), Ford Thurston (Guitar, Randy Houser), and Lee Turner (Organ, Darius Rucker). The record was mastered by Pete Lyman (Chris Stapleton, Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban).

Kirstie’s two singles "Delusional" and "Gotta Do" have been featured on the Top Ten Tuesday playlist for Next Women of Country, selected to air on Times Up Radio, climbed to #1 on She Wolf Radio and was picked up on country radio in the US and UK.

When in Nashville one can find Kirstie showcasing at the local hot spots, in a writing room, demoing songs, or booking her next tour. When on the road you can spot Kraus driving a 2000 Dutchman RV.

A great voice, good looks and a magnetic personality have long been the minimum standard for those striving for stardom in today’s Country music market. Only a few entertainers reach the top: the bold, the extraordinary, the lucky; those with the undefinable “it” factor that marks them for success. Jimmy Charles easily meets those requirements with his rugged good looks, soulful voice, and empowered performance style. He’s made a national name for himself with his compelling originals, and he’s toured the country opening for Lady Antebellum, Montgomery Gentry, Kip Moore, Kacey Musgraves, Josh Turner, Merle Haggard, and others.

Jimmy’s succeeded in a business where great singers are a dime a dozen and your good looks won’t buy you a cup of coffee. “I was always focused on baseball and football, but I fell in love with the ‘3-chord and the truth’ songs my dad played,” the Ocean City native recalls. “I learned from him and the memories of us just sitting around together playing are some of my favorites.” After graduating from Towson University, Jimmy began playing at clubs across Maryland. “I woke up one day and realized that the days of shoulder pads and helmets were over, and I made the decision to pursue my music seriously. I never looked back,” Charles reflects. “I moved to Nashville after getting my degree, tried out for Nashville Star along with 40,000 other people and made it to the Top 50,” he says. “Even though I didn’t win, getting that far made me believe I could do this.”

A Season 9 American Idol contestant who earned his ticket to “Hollywood” via unanimous vote, Jimmy proved again and again that he had the ability – and the drive – to make it as a member of a very exclusive club; successful entertainers with the power to change lives. And that’s exactly what Jimmy is banking on as he gives his all to his music every day. Unlike most who strive for stardom, it isn’t money, glamour or ego that motivate him; Jimmy is propelled forward by the desire to make a positive difference in people’s lives. A national spokesman for ZERO Cancer since 2014, Charles is melding music and mission to spread the message of cancer prevention/early detection, using his talent to amplify his reach. “They’re focused on prostate cancer and are a huge voice for men,” Jimmy notes of ZERO. “They want to conquer the disease through research, advocacy and education. It is an amazing organization with a fantastic mission and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”

While the singer/songwriter found early success in 2014 with his first single, “Whatever It Takes,” the power of “Superman” earned him a solid national presence. Written specifically for ZERO to promote prostate cancer awareness with friend and bandmate Goose Gossett (who also produced) and cancer survivor/mentor Phil Shulka, the song’s companion video premiered on CMT, trending in the #1 spot for over a week. The clip also aired on GAC, ZUUS (now known as The Country Network) and Heartland, putting the newcomer front and center before hundreds of thousands of fans.

“We got over 5,000 shares the first day on CMT,” Charles recalls. “That’s not views, it’s shares. When I started getting emails and Facebook messages from folks who’d lost a loved one, or who were struggling with cancer themselves, and it hit me how much difference a song could make. When you know you can have that kind of impact, it seems incredibly selfish not to give it your all.” Giving it his all is the norm for Jimmy. He is still heavily involved with ZERO, performing at runs/walks across the country and helping to raise millions for the organization. He was named Outstanding Young Tennessean (2017) for his work against the disease and is nominated for Ten Outstanding Young Americans award this year. In addition to his work for ZERO, Charles recently formed his own non-profit, #IAMNOTALONE, which focuses on the strength and well-being of cancer survivors. “It’s not limited to one type of cancer patient,” Jimmy notes. “There’s an old saying that ‘to be inspired is great, to inspire others is amazing’ and that’s so true,” he admits. “We’ve all been touched by this disease – I’ve lost my grandmother and two uncles and have one uncle who’s a survivor. We should all be willing to do whatever is in our power to do to change that.”

“Superman” put Jimmy in the spotlight and his next single, “Bout Summertime,” showcased his more adventurous and carefree side, and landed him on the MusicRow Chart. “It’s just a fun song about the beach,” Jimmy admits with a laugh. “I wrote it based on my own memories of growing up around the ocean.” The bouncy, feel-good number’s companion video was filmed while Charles was in the U.S. Virgin Islands to perform during the renowned Texas Society of the Virgin Islands festival in Brewers Bay Beach. The clip continues to enjoy play in Margaritaville locations, casinos, and other Country-oriented outlets.

Jimmy’s current single is the passionate “I Am Not Alone” a song he co-wrote with C.J. Garton and Rich Fehle. Produced by Grammy Award-winner Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell (Rod Stewart, Al Green, John Mayer), the song’s compelling message of hope and strength offers Jimmy’s best vocal performance to date. “The single is already getting enormous early response from my fans, and it will be on my upcoming EP, TEN,” says the humble singer/songwriter. The project is due out in November and Charles believes its truly defines him as an artist. “I’m a guy who writes and sings and loves music,” Jimmy states. “I wanna share that love. I’ve learned so much from these survivors and I want to continue to help them anyway that I can,” he says. “Their stories break my heart, but our journey together makes me whole.”

"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.

"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.
