She’s a girl who values and appreciates the ‘little things in life’. That grounded mindset has seen her go from playing church and charity events, to sharing the big stage with artists like Dallas Smith, Marc Jordan, Carole Pope, Jack DeKeyzer & Justin Hines to name a few.
Mike is an award-winning Country-Rock artist from Canada’s East Coast. His infectious melodies are well-spiced with lyrics of life, love, and loss.

RyLee has traveled to Europe, performing at Festival Country Rendez-Vous in France, Whelan's Pub in Dublin, Ireland, Half Moon in Cork, Ireland, and Róisín Dubh Pub in Galway, Ireland and at the famed Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.

Matt Austin grew up in the Detroit downriver area with a guitar-playing father but he didn’t gain interest in playing until his uncle from Texas moved to Michigan.

In 2013 along with releasing his new EP Matt Austin, was also direct support for Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, Uncle Kracker, Aaron Lewis, Josh Gracin, Charlie Worsham, Chase Rice and Jerrod Niemann.

Tune in to hear conversations & Christmas music from Leah Daniels, Barbara Lynn Doran & Nancy Laberge.
Leah has steadily been building a fan base for the past couple of years. She credits the on-line social media world for much of the audience she’s already secured and it shows. She’s a two time CCMA Award nominee for “Interactive Artist” and the winner of the 2014 CCMA Spotlight Performance determined entirely by fan votes across Canada. She's also had a tour with Alan Jackson, a Green-carpet performance at the 2014 CCMA Awards and shows for the Maple Leafs (Air Canada Centre). Leah’s latest single “Go Back” was released in October and a new album is on the way in early 2015.
Since her debut, Barbara’s brand of country has garnered her a number of opportunities and accolades, including nominations for the first round ballot at the inaugural 2013 CMAO awards in four categories, and the chance to perform at The Diamond in the Rough Showcase in Saskatoon at Canadian Country Music Week. More recently, she qualified as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, a finalist in the Great American Songwriting Competition and landed a spot on the Nashville Songwriter’s Association 2014 ‘Ones To Watch’ list. Her latest album is called Love From All Sides.
After spending some time in Nashville as a songwriter, Nancy soon figured out that if she wanted to survive in the music business she needed something to fall back on and that is when she decided to become a professional chef. Her new CD release Write From The Heart has her teaming up with fellow songwriters Troy Kokol, Patti Jo Lennox, Joni Delaurier and her friend Amy Bishop, who is Nancy’s co-writer on “Holy Moly Christmas”.
