Sarah Davidson is setting herself up to be a breakout artist of 2014 with the release of her self-titled EP.

The EP, recorded in Nashville under the helm of producers Brian Kolb (Jerrod Niemann) and Dino Paredes (The Avett Brothers and Johnny Cash), is a 5-reflection of Davidson’s personal and professional growth over the last several years. “I want to put out music through my albums that tells a story, that is authentic to what my life is. Just basically living my life open and putting out music that parallels that.” says Davidson. The EP showcases Davidson’s broad range of musical style: from the audio come on of the debut single “Drink You Up”, to the poignant ballad “Get Out” and the breezy ode to youth “Ride Around”; there is sure to be something to appeal to every fan of country music.

Backed by the Suretone label and bolstered by being featured on TNT’s new unscripted drama Private Lives of Nashville Wives (debuting Feb 24 at 10/9 CT), as not only one of the stories they follow through the drama, but also penning and singing the series theme song “Bright Lights, Big City”, Davidson is sure to be poised for stardom.

REVIEW: Brooke Eden at the South Florida Fair

Brooke Eden

Brooke Eden is a little bit country, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, and a whole lot of talent jam-packed into a pint-sized package of girl power. A South Florida native, Brooke was welcomed home from her current residency in Nashville, Tennessee, as she took over the main stage at the South Florida Fair and performed a lengthy set, never once losing an ounce of her energy. Brooke’s setlist was cleverly crafted with original songs laced between a selection of cover songs that could have been written for Brooke herself. The interplay between covers and originals ensured that the audience’s excitement never waned and that the crowd was glued to every song, anticipating what would come next.

Brooke opened the show with Gretchen Wilson‘s “Here For the Party” and immediately shared her energy with the audience, proving that the choice to stop in on a cold South Florida night was a wise one, indeed. Brooke showed her versatility throughout her entire show, covering soloists, duos, and groups without fail. From The Band Perry to Florida Georgia Line to Adele to Big and Rich, Brooke captivated her audience, bringing the heat to a winter night as she danced around the stage with a presence comparable to the incredible Miranda Lambert.

EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Jenn Bostic

jennbostic

There are many words that can be used to describe singer/songwriter/musician, Jenn Bostic: talented; intelligent; humble; gracious; personable; soulful; inspiring … and that is just to name a few. During our extremely chatty telephone conversation, I learned that Jenn is one of the mentally and physically strongest people I have had the pleasure of “meeting” and that this artist gets lost in her craft for the most admirable of reasons. With accolades and awards that are exceedingly impressive and in which any artist would hold a great deal of pride, what Jenn holds dearest is the impact she has made on the lives of those who can relate to her music.

Jenn Bostic was raised in a musical family. When she was younger, her family would sit around after dinner, with her father playing guitar, and he and Jenn would each sing songs. In an extraordinarily unfortunate twist of fate, Jenn’s father’s life was cut short in a tragic car accident when she was ten years of age. “It broke my heart, but trying to find a therapy to express those things was so difficult, so I sat down at the piano again and, for me, he taught me how to play, he taught me how to sing … that was the one connection that remained with him not being around anymore. And, through that, I just enveloped myself in every form of music I could.”
