Dylan Schneider is wise beyond his years, especially when it comes to his songwriting. But perhaps even more impressive is Schneider’s ability and willingness to connect with fans on a personal level. “I used to freak out if an artist would respond or interact with me. It’s incredibly important to me that I do the same with my fans.” That love for fans has helped grow Schneider a collective social following of over 1,000,000.

After the release of the debut EP Wannabe in August 2016, his follow up EP 17 was released in October of the same year, landing at #3 on the iTunes Country Album Charts. In February, he premiered the music video for his song "You Heard Wrong" with major music outlet Billboard, who called him "country music's next rising star." Schneider recently released his latest EP Spotlight’s On You in April, and the five-song album hit the #1 spot on the iTunes Country Album Charts. He spent the summer on the road, selling out dates on his own headlining tour, and released single "How Does It Sound" in July of 2017, which has already accumulated nearly 3 million streams on Spotify.

In November of 2017, Schneider signed with Interscope Records as the label's first direct country signing - coinciding with the release of his new single, "No Problem". He's currently on tour as direct support for Chris Lane's Take Back Home Tour and Granger Smith's Don't Tread On Me Tour.

With a lot in the works, Schneider’s focus remains the importance of the fan. “At the end of the day, I’m nothing without my fans. When I write, I’m thinking, ‘how is this song going to sing live, and how will the audience react and identify?’ What I do, most importantly, is for my fans. My job is to connect and show them a good time.” It seems Schneider’s off to a great start in doing just that.

For some people it takes a lifetime to find passion and purpose, for Alissa Griffith however there was never really a question. Her passion is music. There is no question upon hearing her voice and lyrics that it's also her purpose. Alissa grew up in Anaheim, California just beyond the bubble of LA's music scene. The imaginary line was never of concern to Alissa. At fourteen she convinced her parents to let her ride the train 4 times a week into Los Angeles for writing appointments, which led to recording instantly. She was signed to a major publishing deal and her own tv pilot at 17. Soon after, she made Hollywood her home.

In 2007 she was asked to come to Nashville to do some writing. Alissa found a lyric in Nashville that she deeply identified with. So much so that she split her time between Nashville and Los Angeles for years until 2015 when she put roots down in Tennessee. You can hear a definitive mix of both cities in the the melodic sensibilities and soul filled vocals in all that she writes and sings.

Today Alissa is writing with many of Nashville’s top songwriters and can be seen bringing down the house around Nashville. She's currently working on a record with Jon Stone(Lee Brice, American Young) to be released late summer 2017.

Kendal Elizabeth Cecilia Conrad. Cecilia is my confirmation name – she’s the patron saint of music. I’m determined to own a pair of cowboy boots in every color. I drink coffee at 11 o’clock at night. Mocha Frappuccinos at Starbucks rock. And so do McDonald’s chicken nuggets and fries. I love a good horror flick, but I must say that I have the classic “kiss in the rain” poster from The Notebook hanging over my bed (I cry EVERY SINGLE TIME I watch that movie.) I get really excited about new books. I love to read, and I’ll read pretty much anything. I’m also a writer. I paint pictures with words. I have two unpublished dark fantasy/horror novels that I think would kick butt on the big screen.

Some people take pictures to capture the special moments in their lives that they want remembered. Well, I write songs. I write songs about old boyfriends, new boyfriends, and people I haven’t even met yet. I write songs about zombies and aliens and even Reba McEntire. Music has no rules, and that’s what I love about it. I prefer to listen to country music, but I gotta admit it – I have everything from Whitney Houston to Kelly Clarkson to All Time Low to Killswitch Engage to Hannah Montana to George Strait to Eminem on my iPod.

I wear my heart on my sleeve. I hold a grudge. I hate winter, but I love breaking out my fur boots. I’m a hopeless romantic and sometimes I wonder what my future husband is doing at this very moment. Weird thought, ain’t it? I admire strong women, like my mom. I wrote the song “Imagine” for her. I could spend countless hours reading quotes and I love the exact moment when you find a really good one. I overanalyze and overthink EVERYTHING. Seriously. I don’t follow the trends. If white is “in,” I’ll wear purple just to stand out. Purple is also my favorite color. It’s even the color of the carpet in my bedroom – not even kidding.

To the people who’ve danced to my music during a gig, or tweeted me about my songs, or liked my page on Facebook, or commented one of my Youtube videos – I thank you from the very bottom of my heart. I couldn’t do this without you. I appreciate all the support y’all have given me. I try to reply to every single person who leaves me a message because if you took the time to listen to my songs or write to me, then I can take the time to thank you.
