[Behind the music} Erin McLendon on You’re The Only One http://lsh.re/15A0L

Coming out of Nashville Tennessee, there are so many amazing opportunities making music here. I either network at the shows or hang out at writers rooms. Sometimes it’s just as easy asking someone to write with you.

I love instagram. I get to post real authentic pictures of my life and the space is just fun.

In the music industry today, you don’t have to be signed to a label to be successful. Artists are able to be unique and mix genres into their music and work at being unique. http://www.reverbnation.com/erinmclendon


{Behind The Music} Synthetic on Memories http://lsh.re/15FZN

Chris and Sterge from Cambridge UK. London offers alot of opportunities to play our music. Lots of festivals during the summer time. We offer a mix of Scandinavian and American elements into our music.

We have found that the best way to be serious about our music is to ask the true fans to invest in our music. If they love the songs, then download it and help us support our art.


{Behind The Music} Alien on Feel This http://lsh.re/15A2Z  – Daniel Babij

Making music is more of a passion and a calling for me. I’ve had to walk away in the past due to life but I’m ready to come back and focus.


{Behind The Music} CB aka Country boy on Beast Mode http://lsh.re/15A6S Houston, Tx. My favorite social page is twitter because it’s instant contact and a traffic driver. You can reach so many more people more easily than many of the other pages.

The music business is very trendy with little long-gevity in the productions. Anyone can produce a song with all the home studio so I feel  like we should start making music that isn’t so focused on trends and more focused on quality.

I’ve been very lucky to work with a new management team that works hard along side of me to plan collaborations with different producers. So lots to come.


{Behind The Music} John Cox on Never Be the Same http://lsh.re/1556K  Charleston, SC .

My focus is on improving my craft. I have discovered that I am most motivated by the beat as I write songs. It keeps me moving forward and helps me feel the song in a more authentic space than in the computer.  Lots of times I’ve tried to compose the music in pro-tool and then write the lyrics and I feel blocked. It’s just better to keep it all acoustic as I write and not rely to much on technology before the piece is completed.

I’m looking forward to collaborating with some other artists soon.
