Rita Wilson has enjoyed a long and successful career in show business as an actress (Sleepless In Seattle, Now and Then, Runaway Bride), producer (My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Mamma Mia!), director, and writer, but it wasn't until 40 years after she made her television debut that she branched out into a new line as a singer. Inspired by her run in Broadway's Chicago in 2006, she made her recording debut with 2012's AM/FM, a set of covers. Sticking to a warm, adult contemporary sound, she made her songwriting debut with her eponymous album, released in 2016.  Rita’s new album, Bigger Picture reunites her with producer Fred Mollin (Johnny Mathis, Jimmy Webb, and Kris Kristofferson) and expands on her gifts as a storyteller and vocalist. She has crafted a revelatory set of songs, which allow her to tell stories—including her own—in entirely new ways. GRAMMY® Award-nominated, platinum-certified hit-maker Cassadee Pope’s single, “Take You Home,” was released earlier this year and has garnered over 10 million streams. The follow up “One More Red Light,” was released to critical praise just this month. Following her victory on Season 3 of The Voice, her 2013 debut, Frame By Frame, bowed at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart and it’s lead single, “Wasting All These Tears” went platinum. In 2016, she teamed with Chris Young for the No. 1 hit “Think Of You,” which garnered a GRAMMY® nod for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Blaine Mitchell is a former contestant and Season 9 finalist from NBC’s The Voice. Now front-man for the band, Love & War, Blaine took a road trip with several friends and band-mates and created a series of live-recorded singles in National Parks around the United States. Those acoustic singles/videos will be released alongside studio singles later this year 2018.  Love & War is a passion project that is heavily influenced by nature and the band's own personal life experiences. Blaine’s desire for adventure and life on the road shines through in the group’s unique folk/pop road trip sounds. With her beguiling vocals and powerful delivery, Haley Reinhart headlined her first international tour, visiting seven countries across Europe as well as her second solo headlining tour of the U.S. in 2017.  She just released her first single from her upcoming fourth album release.

Land O’Lakes tapped her for a synchronization deal that lends her voice to a national ad campaign focusing on Women’s Empowerment.

His song “High Hope” was featured in ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.  The independent Kobalt/AWAL artist released his self-titled EP that was produced by Droney and Ian Fitchuck.
