We are excited to welcome back to our showcases three terrific acts:
Georgia girl Hannah Anders has been singing since she was a young child. Her life has been spent writing music, performing, and entertaining everyone from her family and friends, to audiences at county fairs and competitions. Her desire to really hone her skills as a writer and singer took her to Nashville, Tennessee, where she studied vocal performance at Belmont University and wrote with some of Nashville's top writers and producers. After six years in there, Hannah was ready for her next step as an artist--to hone her skills as a dynamic performer. She packed her bags and moved to Los Angeles where she auditioned and assembled a band that shared her passion for country music and high energy live shows. Alongside Los Angeles producer Daniel Ford, Hannah and her band created the EP "Turn It Up."
The first single off the EP, "Trainwreck," was inspired by rocky relationships, and Hannah's powerful voice captivates you as she tells her tale through honest lyrics and an edgy arrangement. A country tune injected with a bit of rock wakes you up and grabs your attention. It is safe to say Hannah could be the newest female country star to shake things up in the music industry.
It has been said that when it comes to her live show, Hannah rivals some of the most well-known country artists out there, that "she has an intensity and passion that few can rival." Thinking outside the box allows her the freedom to write and produce music that she feels will grab an audience's attention. They love her electrifying presence, her storytelling style, and her overall allure. Her EP "Turn It Up" is currently available at most digital storefronts, and her full-length album is set for release in 2013.
Hannah Anders is a member of The Recording Artists Guild (RAG) in Los Angeles, California and Silver Z Management in Nashville, Tennessee. She and her team are currently working on her tour schedule. Dates and locations will be available on her website, www.hannahanders.com as they are confirmed.
Tyler Barabas comes to us from another musical mecca, Austin, TX, to further his endeavors in the City of Angels. An alumni of the University of Texas-Austin, he has been making waves as of late with his song, "The Perfect Place", a song with an excellent groove that utilize multiple percussive beats with minimalist guitar and soulful lyrics. He has recently been featured on KCSN 88.5 radio in Los Angeles, and will be returning for another eagerly anticipated performance at JMWest Live's next event on February 16, 2013.
Nate Trott's life did not start off as an underdog story. At a young age, a lot of people saw that he could go off and do great things. Nate still remembers the exact moment when his confidence blossomed: he was ten years old, playing basketball outside his house before the school bus came. Before he shot the ball, he said to himself, "This ball is going in that hoop." It did. Throughout his life, he's carried that moment with him.
Sometimes, one has to get through the storm to see the sunshine. Nate went through years when fights, breakups, arrests--you name it--were allthe norm. He came out of it a man determined to reach his destiny. He knew from the age of thirteen that he was going to become a rapper; he just had to battle some demons first. Now, Nate is ready to share his experience with the darker side of life through his music. His mission is to help people gain a different perspective. Join him on the journey.
