Pop Artist Jamie Roxx (www.JamieRoxx.us) Welcomes Pop Country Singer/ Songwriter Amanda Lamb to the show.
With the artistry of vocalist and songwriter Amanda Lamb, the compass points to Southern California and the sun swept shores of Orange County. Amanda’s new single, “We Were Here,” is an invitation to a coastline drive and an exuberant nod to her West coast roots.
Growing up in Newport Beach, humming along to Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain on the radio, Amanda Lamb was entranced by the authenticity of country music. “The stories in these songs sounded real,” she says. When she began her personal musical journey, she recalls her grandmother making a perceptive suggestion. “She said, ‘Why aren't you singing country?’” Recording in Nashville, she realized that her Grandmother had been right. “Country Music feels more comfortable than anything I have ever done,” she says. “It feels like home.”

Julian Angel Camarena is an American singer-songwriter, producer, musician, entrepreneur and performer from Arizona. Due to his father being an artist, Julian grew up in a creative and artistic household. Julian first showed interest in music at the age of eight after deciding to learn the alto saxophone so he could play it in the school band. At the age of thirteen, Julian started writing and composing his own music, but it wasn't until fourteen that he decided to add lyrics to each of his compositions, "For me adding lyrics to a song was just another way of adding more emotion, feeling and meaning to my music." After graduating high school at the age of sixteen, Julian moved to San Diego to attend University at San Diego State. Julian continued to write and compose music throughout his freshmen year in college.
Find out much more about Julian and his music when he joins Take 2 Radio Music on Wednesday, Jan. 14th at 3pm eastern!
