    Heather Cole

    In today’s generation of music fans, it often takes more than just a good singing voice to command a crowd. It takes heart filled performances, desire and memorable songs. Up and coming pop sensation, Heather Cole, has a fire in her heart that she’s ready to set on the world. Inspired by the likes of Karmin, Justin Timberlake, and Kimbra, Heather Cole’s music portrays a new wave of pop that could be described as edgy yet fun. Her voice carries a punch with her effortless high notes and a softer more vulnerable side with her velvety lower register. Combining catchy pop-hooks with relatable lyrics, the Northwest grown Alaska Native wants to produce music that not only moves listeners to their feet, but also speaks to them on a personal level. Heather Cole discovered her love of music at the young age of three years old. The sassy pop singer got her start singing in church with her big sister, Rachele Lynae. As a duo, they participated in the GMA Music in the Rockies where they were named Vocal Group of the Year in 2006. Heather Cole followed her dreams of becoming a solo artist to Nashville, Tennessee where she studied Music at Belmont University. During her time at Belmont, Heather met many talented musicians and producers who shared her love of pop music. She began writing music, and recording songs of her own. When she is not writing or recording, Heather sings back up for her sister and rising Country Singer, Rachele Lynae. Together, they opened up for the likes of, Jana Kramer, Wynonna, Craig Morgan, Randy Houser, and Jamie O’Neal. Currently, Heather Cole is working on her very first solo EP. She is extremely hands on in the writing and recording process, as she wants to make a product that speaks to her listeners. “I love making music with a good beat, catchy hooks, and lyrics that people can relate to,” says Heather, “I write about life from a strong self-respecting perspective. I write about things that I feel or things that have happened to me or to the people around me, and I love being able to connect through music.”


      MY RED + BLUE

      MY RED + BLUE is the refined and refreshing pop/rock project of 23-year-old Milwaukee-to-Nashville transplant, Ben Eggebrecht. Following the release of his debut EP ‘The Start’, Ben and his band spent the better part of last year sharing the stage with acts such as Parachute, Matt Wertz, and the chart-topping duo A Great Big World. In March 2014, ‘The Start’ debuted on Noisetrade.com as the #2 most downloaded album overall, and as the #1 most downloaded pop album. It began almost four years ago when I realized how badly I needed an outlet for the higher energy songs I was writing. I’ve been pouring into this project ever since, Ben states. “People inspire my music. Everyday conversations. Observing the scenes that occur around me on a daily basis.” Influenced by both the sounds of the West Coast and the Tennessee hills, MY RED + BLUE takes listeners through a colorful palette of youth, nostalgia, and summertime, while unearthing the memories that have made us who we are. MY RED + BLUE says what we sometimes don’t know how to say, helping us remember what’s been lost, and giving us hope for what’s to come. Ben is currently working on a new MY RED + BLUE project in Nashville, TN. The release date has yet to be announced.

          Maggie Lindemann KOYH

          Over the summer, we brought you an exclusive interview with Maggie Lindemann. Now, her first single is here! Maggie is just 17 but a standout among other teenage artists. With a mature sound reminiscent of Lana Del Rey, her single “Knocking on Your Heart” showcases depth and sincerity. You can tell a great song by its authenticity; one that pulls you in, gives you chills and makes you feel the emotion the artist is trying to convey. “Knocking on Your Heart” does just that, and in our opinion, immediately elevates her into the ranks of today’s biggest artists. This girl is the real deal.

              Chancellor Warhol

              Antonio Dewayne Boleyjack was born in Nashville, TN. He grew up drawn to art, cinema, fashion and a diverse culture all of which helped shape his very own style of music today. Channeling an alternative/electro rap style, Warhol released his first solo album titled Japanese Lunchbox in 2010 (Voted Best Rap Album of 2010 by the Nashville Scene). He has gone on to release three more well received projects, The Silver Factory (2011), the Playlist for Edie mixtape (2012) and Paris Is Burning (2014). His unconventional sound has earned him a place on stages such as Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, and Sundance Film Festival. Warhol has also supported several artists including Questlove, Kid Cudi, Kendrick Lamar, LL Cool J, Ice Cube, Chance The Rapper, and Yelawolf. His music has been played on major networks such as ESPN, HBO, MTV, VH1, and the E! network. With a strong command of his own art, Chancellor Warhol continues to redefine not only music but culture as well.

                “Diamond Carter is a character that represents an idea. The name comes from a song off of Mark Levine’s 1968 album “Pilgrim’s Progress,” in which the character Diamond Carter splits for the woods in order to maintain artistic integrity and love. Sometimes, I am Diamond Carter in my striving to be that pure artist. Other times, the band as a whole is Diamond Carter in our transcendental moments of melodic unity.” — Tyler Tuohy

                  Eli Purks

                  Webster’s Dictionary defines a super-star as one that is very prominent or is a prime attraction. That being said, the musical talent of Eli Purks has him slated to become the next super star to dominate the world of pop music. There are certain artists you meet who immediately lure you in with their contagious energy and talent. Their zeal for music and performance is refreshing, and their genuine dedication and discipline to a creative craft is something you know will mark them with a career of longevity. At just 20 years old, the blooming pop artist always knew that his future held something different…something special. Currently residing in San Antonio, Purks was raised under the influence of a supportive family who always encouraged his creative path to a career in music and performance. Music filled the Purks’ household on a daily basis, to the likes of Al Green, Parliament Funkadelic, Mariah Carey, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. Purks’ determination and drive to become not just a star, but a super-star began with the onset of witnessing the success of pop stars who are larger than life. Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Beyoncé, Michael Jackson and Nsync all have played a role in his preparation for a career that is already taking off at rapid speed. His writing skills have flourished through the ongoing creation of poems and stories. He recently finished recording in New York, dubbing it as an amazing experience. His demos are currently being mixed and mastered, and the near future will include more studio time. Eli admits becoming lost in the music and feeding off the reactions from the audience. He is driven by the whirlwind of performing, and as he begins to gain national recognition for his work, Eli plans to adopt a multi-city tour that will assist in building a strong fan base, as well as a supportive management team. His ability to adapt as a writer, singer and performer makes Purks a trifecta of an artist, something the current cookie-cutter industry is lacking. Also impressive is his creative vision for the future, which reaches outside of performance and includes fashion, endorsements, movies, TV and eventually, world domination! Slated to become a world-renowned talent, Eli Purks is surely one artist to keep an eye on, as this young talent will only increase in momentum as he continues to take the entertainment industry by storm.


                  For those who aren’t familiar with you, tell us a little bit about yourself!
                  What’s up?! I’m a recording artist living in Nashville, TN, but was born and raised in Houston, TX. I specialize in my original genres of Island Pop Grass, Rhythm & Boons Farm, Country-Trap, Country-Shuffle-Trap, ECM (Electronic Country Music), Hick-Hop, and Hip-Hop Pop-Grass 😉 I like to BUMP.

                  How did you get started in music?
                  SPORTS! Weird, I know. I began singing National Anthems for my high school volleyball and basketball teams after my teammates and coaches heard me singing along to the radio in the locker rooms or on bus rides. Word spread in Houston and before I knew it, I was singing our nation’s song in front of a sold-out, season ending Texans crowd of 75,000 people. I started singing for the Astros, Dynamo, NASA, and even more. Luckily, I had already been writing poems, books, and songs for fun, and have been playing piano since age eight. Thus, everything started pointing towards one place: Nashville. I decided to attend Vanderbilt University, which helped convince my parents that moving to Nash-VEGAS and chasing my dream was a little less terrifying than it appeared.

                  You have a diverse set of influences – describe your music and tell us about some of those influences.
                  I’m a Texas girl living in Nashville…I think the country influence is self-explanatory. However, my start as a pianist with an inexplicable amount of SOUL in my voice, on-top of growing up in Houston’s Urban music scene, left me with the urge to experiment and mash-up all of my favorite elements in every genre. I have FOMO when it comes to music. I want to do it all:)

                  What is your favorite thing about Nashville?
                  Nashville is my home away from home. The people on my team aren’t just my co-workers. I love them like family. Nashville has a welcoming atmosphere unlike any other. AND VANDY<3

                  Who is one artist you would love to tour with?
                  I think Sam Hunt would be incredible to tour with. We both like to break the genre boundaries. I think our shows would be INSANE together.

                  What is your current favorite song?
                  “Bottom of the River”- Delta Rae

                  What are your goals as an artist?
                  All I need to feel accomplished are people singing along to my songs at the top of their lungs.



                    One of our favorite new artists proves once again that he’s the real deal. After his impressive debut single “The Other”, Lauv is back with “Reforget”, an incredible follow-up. Check out this song and keep an eye on Lauv; he’s spreading like wildfire and does not disappoint.
