I am just a country boy born and raised 10 miles outside of Wetumpka AL. I was in the Army and Army National Guard for 8.5 years. I have one twin sister, Lisa. Also i have my mama and daddy Betty and Joe, who are still married after 30 years. My wife Angie has been thru alot in these years weve been married, but our troubles just add fuel to the fire as far as my songwriting skills are concerned. Now i have a new ally in CMT Rising Artist Taylor Marie Wagner who has begun production and is a cowriter on our Debut Album's self-titled song The Journey Begins. So im pumped about working with her. Music isnt everything to me. Im doing this for my family, those who live and breathe by their faith, and those who want real life injected into their lives and hearts. As you can see, Faith and Family are the driving forces behind my music and life. The Journey Begins is literally my journey from the lowest lows to the highest highs in my life. For that reason alone it basically is a great personal account that people will identify with near and far. Im ready for the world to really experience who Eric Lee Oswalt is. RockOn!
You know how an artist paints a picture and makes a masterpiece? Thats what i do with my pen. I use my words to paint pictures of my life into beautiful songs that are inspiring, real, heartbreaking at times, hopeful, and Christ-driven. My goal is to show you who i am and what ive overcome thru my music. And if ive done it then maybe by listening to one of my songs, you will be able to also. Rock On, and God Bless- EricLee

Brittany Fisheli is an actress, known for The Dark Tapes (2016), The Last Ten Seconds (2015) and For Lauren (2016) and she loves to sing, read my review about this multi talented young lady from USA.
I love writing music to inspire people. I love performing in front of people. I wrote my first song when I was 10 and had it produced when I was 11 "Music in Your Heart". I love Summer, the beach, and hanging out with my friends, so I decided to write a song about the things I love most. I recently wrote "Zombies". I dislike bullies very much and I noticed that a lot of my friends like to blend in and try to be like everyone else in order to avoid being bullied. I think it's important to be yourself and let others know who you truly are. I wanted to inspire kids to have confidence and be themselves

I'm from Manchester, UK, I currently live in my camper / tour van, I'm about to head off travelling around Europe - hopefully doing some gigs, street shows, lots of writing & videos..
I make music because.. Ahh, it's just something that has to be done! It's like therapy, self improvement, reflection, deep thinking.. Writing & playing, singing, helps it all make sense to me, and helps me connect with people more effectively than just rambling on in everyday conversation..
Alternative Rock band Mourning Stone is the collaborative project of Adam Maxfield (Vocals, Bass Guitar and Programming) of London England, United Kingdom, and Wes Dinwiddie (Guitars, Synths, Vocals, and Engineering) of Houston, Texas. Adam and Wes have been developing the sound and vibe of the band since January 2015. Mourning Stone powers through with guitar-driven hard rock anthems while winning the hearts of their listeners with their rich, warm tone and liquid melodies. Mourning Stone's debut EP, "Five Ways to Broken", released December 19, 2015 parades their heavy, down-tuned Alternative Hard Rock side and gracefully displays the much softer and tender face of the genre. Their lyrical style is simple but passionate, and easily relatable to everyday experiences. In March 2016, Mourning Stone was selected by A.V.A. Live Radio as a featured artist for their song “Think Twice”, and was subsequently published online with American Pride Magazine. Mourning Stone continues to harness the airwaves on a regular basis with Independent Share Radio, The Pat Stone Show, as well as featured segments in podcasts and blogs all over the world. "Think Twice” is such a catchy and beautiful song... it definitely stands out among the crowd." – Jacqueline Jax, A.V.A. Live Radio "You two have achieved such a fabulous sound... The vocal and the production sound so polished." - Jacqueline Jax, A.V.A. Live Radio A multi-instrumentalist from a musical family, Adam has been an avid member of the musical community and has collaborated with many artists over the years covering many genres of music. In 2012, Adam participated in the Steinberg Finals which is a contest hosted by Broadjam each year that showcases top talent from all around the globe. Adam was a runner-up finalist with songs entitled “Another Day”, and “I Still” co-written with Nathan Nasby. Adam’s one true love has always been Hard Rock/Metal and with Mourning Stone he has found his ultimate platform together with his musical soulmate. Wes has collaborated with producers and publishers for T.V. and film placements, and has worked specifically on projects where heavy rock guitars were a requirement. In 2014, Wes licensed his first track with co-writer Shawn Tallard to CMT’s program, FNA USA. In 2005, he gained attention from winning a guitar contest at Camp Pendleton, CA. This earned him a spot to play on stage with Godsmack at a special charity event to support the troops who were returning home from combat in the Middle East. “qy67aZw’ the Corps” was filmed and played live in front of a crowd of 40,000 people, and was also broadcast live around the world by the Armed Forces Network.

Singer/songwriter Matt Steady of Leicester, England, chooses to identify his sound with folk, reflected in his intimate live performances, but his recordings draw from a much broader palette of musical genres. Having been classically trained in piano, violin and musical theory, Steady’s growing frustration with the “notes on the page” philosophy eventually led to him picking up a guitar, emulating blues legends by ear instead. After years of performing what he describes as “extra-ordinary covers”, he has clearly experienced enough joy and heartache to allow him to write genuine and honest, non-trivial lyrics. He has an album’s worth of material to get off his chest! Steady’s grizzled appearance aptly matches his musical style and tone. His voice is rugged and raspy, in sharp contrast to the fragile lyrics and delicate instrumental arrangements. Steady’s debut full-length album, “Blood is Thicker than Gold” was written, performed and produced himself, aided by Swedish drummer Niklas J. Blixt and the occasional appearance of other top-notch musicians. He draws on a wide range of musical genres from blistering electric blues to agonising acoustic singer-songwriter tracks, from beautiful and expansive Celtic landscapes, back to traditional folk. Every track is unique, with a different style, yet the album easily flows from one medium to another with a sense of shape and purpose. The end of the album leaves the listener breathless, anticipating only the pressing of the repeat button
I was brought up singing and playing classical music (violin and piano) from a very early age, so music has always been a big part of my life. I eventually discovered the blues and taught myself guitar, copying Clapton, SRV, BB King etc. Later on in my 20s I was so inspired by the incredible acoustic performances of Damien Rice and Martyn Joseph that I started playing small acoustic gigs in pubs and bars – and that’s where my love of performing live came from. Standing in front of a crowd of strangers is a very different thing from playing as part of an orchestra! There’s absolutely nowhere to hide.
Recording-wise I started in my late 30s. One of my musical heroes, Jeff Black, had asked in one of his newsletters for people to record some covers of his music to put on his website for an event. I really fancied trying this, so basically worked most of the way through the night for a couple of weeks after getting home from work to get a couple of tunes done in time. They turned out much better than I had expected, and Jeff was very complimentary. Very inspiring! In fact it was so inspiring that I started writing my own songs and recording them. I fell in love with this process and it’s blossomed into something quite unexpected – I found I was writing and recording material that was good enough that it demanded to be put on an album. So yes – it’s never too late!
My name's Paulo Dávalos a.k.a Pool_onmoon I'm a Mexican guy from Querétaro. I started with the music since I was 10, when I learned to play the guitar. I liked it so much, but it wasn't that important for me. Until something very hard for me happened: a very close relative of mine died. I was so sad and it was like if there wasn't a way to get through it, so I started to compose music for real, and then I realized music is more than notes and some chords, I really liked it. I started to produce music just a few months ago, I created the twitter and Soundcloud accounts, chose a name, made a logo and that's it. Here I am now.

No I am not a signed artist. I write my own songs and sing them. I write mostly Country ,some with a Folk feel to them.I have always been inspired by Patsy Cline,Loretta Lynn and the great women of Country Music.
I have always loved music and discovered at 8 years old I could create poetry just out of the blue but it was actually friends and acquaintances who persuaded and coaxed me into creating my first album.
I am a small town country girl, Country to the core.I write my own songs and sing them. I am an Indie artist leaving out all the middle men. My Genres are Country and Folk music.Many people like what I create. Some of my lyrics are explicit but sometimes especially in a protest song strong words are needed to get the message across and to wake people up, make them listen, and act. I do not apologize for my lyrics as I create what I've experienced and what I feel. No one has to agree with me but don't condemn me either. I am a solo artist and an individualist. I've survived many hardships and I'm a strong willed person. I hate Bullying, Liars, Cheaters with a passion.
