Robert Burgeis

Robert Burgeis is one of Nashville’s few piano playing, guitar picking artists who is also a seasoned songwriter and producer. With his diverse talent and love for country music, he has been dubbed as ‘The Rednek RokStar’.

Just one easy glance and a quick listen to his unique music, and you’ll experience a sexy stage presence and a delivery of songs that are filled with emotion, substance, and the stuff that’ll make anyone’s feet move.

Burgeis’s smooth voice, peppered with just enough twang and partnered with his masterful yet edgy guitar playing and tantalizing ivory tinkling, is what makes this ‘country-rocker’ one of the finest entertainers of his day.

Nolan Neal

Bigger than life, captivating energy and boundless talent are just a few ways that don’t even come close to describing the Nashville based artist/singer/songwriter Nolan Neal. When he performs you get a feeling that the music is exploding from his very soul. In addition to being an incredible singer, he’s an accomplished songwriter, guitar player and drummer and a producer who has an innate sense of the song’s total expression. The total artist.

An actual Nashville native, Nolan Neal was born to carve out his own musical legacy with a father who was a professional drummer and a mother who made her living as a singer. At the age of eighteen, Nolan played his first big gig opening for Eddie Money to an audience of 10,000 people. Nolan has traveled the United States performing and writing with band members from Tonic, Saliva and ShineDown. In 2006, these opportunities led him to signing a publishing deal with Evan Lamburg at EMI and a record deal with Jason Flom at Virgin Records where he joined other artists such as Kid Rock, Matchbox 20 and Jewel. Currently, Nolan has just joined the band, Hinder.
