MERRITT WHITLEY BIO: It was something that started out as passion, and slowly ignited into a deep, unconditional love. Singing, and songwriting has been an influential part of Merritt Whitley’s life since the very beginning. Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, Merritt’s songs are reflections of her life, and stem from her personal experiences.
When Merritt was 15 years old, she wrote a song for the very first time. She was instantly hooked into the magic of writing her own music. However, she did not share her talent with anyone at first. It wasn't until later in high school that Merritt finally shared her music with the world, and received an incredibly positive, and unimaginable response.
Merritt enjoys performing, and has a way of drawing her audience into her life and music. Her songs are relatable, catchy, and paint a vivid picture. Merritt thoroughly enjoys writing about love, life, and everything in between, but most of all, sharing it with others.
Merritt’s musical inspirations range from artists such as Carrie Underwood, Colbie Caillat, Cassadee Pope, and Taylor Swift. She is currently working with an incredibly talented producer named Larry Gann, who has worked with some of the top artists in the industry.
Merritt will be releasing a brand new EP with four original songs within the next month. The title of her new single is "Goodbye" and it will be featured on iTunes with the rest of her music.
We'll also be interviewing Hasan Yates CEO of Masculine Footwear, Luxurious hand crafted Italian shoes for men and woman.
Born and raised in the small farming community of Spiritwood, Saskatchewan, Brody Siebert grew up in a family full of musical talent. He flew down to Nashville in November of 2014 where he recorded three songs. One of the songs titled "Lay It On Me Tonight" came out the gate with lots of hometown support where it spent 4 days as the number one requested song on Saskatoon's 92.9 The Bull and hit number 85 on the Country Mediabase charts in its first month at radio
DIRT ROAD ANGELS
The five talented, creative and seasoned recording artists that make up Alberta's Dirt Road Angels are: Shawna Lynne, Shila Marie, Danita, Karen Claypool and Dahlia Wakefield. Their brand new album is called Paint The Town Red. It features catchy country rock songs such as the title track, which is their first single; the upbeat and fun song "Make Me Wanna"; they get tender on "Memories" and show their heartwarming side on "Best Friend." All are songs they wrote and performed at their 2014 Canadian Country Music Association Diamonds in the Rough showcase.
Country music became Curtis Braly's first love. While in school, he took advantage of every performing opportunity given to him. In the eighth grade, he won first place in a talent contest singing "Old Time Rock-n-Roll". That set things in motion for Curtis to seriously pursue performing live. "Something magical happened to me on that stage," he said. "I knew that music was my destiny, there is no other feeling like it!" This Texas artist's latest single is called "Doors Closing Everywhere."
