The Artists

Mitchell Tenpenny
An American country pop singer and songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee. Tenpenny has released one studio album and two extended plays through Riser House Records, with the album Telling All My Secrets released in December 2018. He charted in 2018 with the single “Drunk Me”, released on Columbia Records Nashville. He also co wrote “If the Boot Fits” with Granger Smith and the song made it to the top 10 on country airplay.

Gin Blossoms
American rock band formed in 1987 in Tempe, Arizona. They rose to prominence following the 1992 release of their first major label album, New Miserable Experience, and the first single released from that album, “Hey Jealousy”. “Hey Jealousy” became a Top 25 hit and went gold, and New Miserable Experience eventually went quadruple platinum; four other charting singles were released from the album. The band’s follow-up album, Congratulations I’m Sorry (1996), went platinum and the single “As Long as It Matters” was nominated for a Grammy Award. Gin Blossoms broke up in 1997. Since reuniting in 2001, the band has released Major Lodge Victory in 2006, No Chocolate Cake in 2010, and Mixed Reality in 2018.

Straight from a Country song – two guys meet and start a band, realize the same girl broke their heart, and then make a spur-of-the-moment decision to hop in a car fueled on neon dreams en route to Nashville – but no, this is the real-life story of LAKEVIEW. Jesse Denaro and Luke Healy make up the Nashville-by-way-of-Pittsburgh duo, infusing Country soul, Rock scope, and Pop ambition, into a singular style rooted in old school storytelling and elevated by carpe diem attitude and edgy production under Photo Finish Records.

Is an American indie rock band from Charleston, South Carolina. The name of the band is from the Spanish word “susto”, meaning “an intense fear understood as a condition of the soul”, reflecting the Cuban roots of some of the band, as well as being drawn from letters in the band leader’s name. With a rock-rooted sound that doesn’t shy away from radio-ready hooks, SUSTO keeps listeners engaged by refusing to occupy an easily defined space.
