Jenn Bostic:

A Minnesota native, currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee. Her emotive songwriting and powerful vocals have been touching hearts around the world.Jealous of the Angels, a song written for her late father, allowed her to connect and empathize with her fans in a remarkable way.

Jealous of the Angels, produced by Barrett Yeretsian (writer/producer of the hit Jar of Hearts for Christina Perri) was discovered by noted U.K. DJ Simon Bates, who played it on his popular morning show on Smooth Radio, where the song immediately jumped into the station’s Top 10 Most Played for the week. The song was soon playlisted on BBC Radio 2, and after a live performance on BBC Breakfast the song went #1 in the United Kingdom.  It now has over 1.8 million views on YouTube, and after two follow up singles, Not Yet and Missin’ a Man, Jenn became the first independent American artist to have their first three singles playlisted at BBC Radio 2.

In 2012, Bostic received 5 Independent Country Music Association Awards including “Best Female Artist,” “Best Songwriter,” and Overall Winner. She has performed across the United States, as well as the United Kingdom, including venues such as The Grand Ole Opry, The Ryman Auditorium, The Bluebird Cafe and Jazz at Lincoln Center, and has opened for artists such as The Band Perry, Randy Travis and Christian Kane.

Michael Shynes:
Shynes has the rare ability to blend shades of multiple genres over an acoustic landscape, and his songs possess a lyrical depth rarely paired with such universal appeal. Performing regularly at the world renowned Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis, as well as having broken ground at the historic Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, this is a songwriter to watch in the years to come. Vastly emerging from humble beginnings in a small central Minnesota town, Shynes has toured with National recording artist Howie Day, as well as opening up for Emerson Hart of Tonic, Matt Hires, Eric Hutchinson, and Tyler Hilton. All the while Shynes maintains a down to earth and laid back demeanor that enables him to have a personal relationship with so many of his loyal listeners.
