Dave Pahanish

Dave Pahanish is an American singer-songwriter. He co-wrote the No.1 Billboard country music singles “Do You Believe Me Now” by Jimmy Wayne, “American Ride” by Toby Keith, and “Without You” Pahanish co-wrote with Joe West and was recorded by Keith Urban in 2012.

He also co-wrote and co-produced the Top 40 Billboard Hot Country Songs charting single, “I Will”, by Jimmy Wayne.

Travis Bowlin

Travis Bowlin, born in Aurora, Indiana in 1988, was destined for success at a very young age. Having been trained in classical style singing and performing with the Cincinnati Boys Choir, Travis took a hard right turn to Rock ‘n Roll and Soul.

Going to the school of hard knocks and having a near death experience has made Travis Bowlin a great writer and a humble man with the voice of a giant!

Travis has been performing in the Greater Cincinnati area and has gathered a conglomeration of great fans that he loves.

He is very down to earth and deals with his fans personally!

Robert Burgeis

To say that Burgeis is a fast rising star would be putting him exactly where he’s always aimed to be. Shortly after moving to Nashville from a little town near Bakersfield, CA, he landed much sought after gigs with such name acts as Big and Rich, John Michael Montgomery, Aaron Tippin, Mel McDaniel, Jamey Johnson and many more.

In addition to his large Nashville fan-base, Robert has been playing national stages all over the U.S. and making thousands of fans along the way. Playing more than 200 dates a year, this one and only ‘Rednek RokStar’ shows no signs of slowing down! As a producer, Robert Burgeis opened his own state-of-the-art recording studio where hundreds of demos and master productions have been recorded.

Jason Lee Wilson

Scots-Irish, German, Swiss, Italian, and Cherokee, no one is more American in spirit, word or pedigree. Jason is a balladeer from the Southern highlands of North America who sings what he knows. He has stayed true to his roots, and has penned many songs romanticizing the history and tradition of his own life.  Jason could be described as traditional country meets folklore meets high energy rockabilly.
