" I Need To Feel This" is very special to me. It is the second single off my EP, "Somethin' 'Bout A Song." I co-wrote the song with Evan Thompson and it came from raw emotion and was about a real life experience I was going through that day. It is without a doubt one of my most favorite songs I have ever written and truly reflects who I am. I had so much fun filming this video at a local park in Nashville and it was directed by my talented friend, Jude Salazar. Hope you like it!

https://www.timothycraig.com - Timothy Craig was born in Wisconsin and grew up in Ft. Myers, Florida. His passion for music undoubtedly stems from his father, who put himself through college writing songs and fronting a five piece rock and roll band in the 60's. Surrounded by vintage guitars, classic drum kits, and tube amplifiers, Timothy formed his first band The CT2Express. The band played a lot of gigs, though never outside Timothy's living room.
While in college in Gainesville, Florida, inspired by Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, Jimmy Buffett, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Seger. Timothy began writing his own songs. Realizing that the closest music hub was in Nashville, he moved there, put a band together and spent years playing his original music in the clubs and outdoor venues including, opening for Cheap Trick at Nashville's Riverfest. The band also played several shows at the Tennessee State Women's Prison!
In February of 2000, Timothy moved to Los Angeles, put a new band together and sang his songs in all the legendary L.A. clubs like The Whisky a GoGo, The Roxy and Club Lingerie.
The TCB (Timothy Craig Band) also performed between the Hollywood All-Star baseball game and the Anaheim Angels baseball game at the Anaheim Angeles Stadium. In 2002, after landing various acting roles including the role of "Phil Everly" of "The Everly Brothers" on the NBC television series "American Dreams" (2002 & 2003), Timothy joined the Screen Actors Guild (SAG).
In 2009, Timothy and his band were invited to perform in the Star Spangled Celebration in Wisconsin. Other acts in the festival were Gretchen Wilson, Blake Shelton, Kellie Pickler, Jake Owen, Eli Young Band and Kenny Rogers.
Currently, Timothy spends time in Ft. Myers, Los Angeles and Nashville. He is a member of The Recording Academy (The Grammy Awards) and is a Sterling Member of the Country Music Association (CMA). Timothy has participated in the 2007, 2008 ,2009, 2012 and 2013 CMA Music Festivals / Fan Fair. He has released six albums and a University of Florida Gator Fight Song single, called "Not Done Yet".

“Best Traditional Country I have heard in awhile” – Bill Cody, 650 AM WSM
The music business has knocked Shane Owens down, but this tough country boy is back on his feet with a triumphant debut album.
The staunch country traditionalist has survived career setbacks that would have defeated most performers. Instead, he has recorded a group of songs that will make him the most applauded newcomer of the year.
“I think of myself as a crusader for traditional country music,” says the Alabama stylist with the burnished baritone. “A lot of the music that’s on the radio now is not traditional country. They’ve kinda gotten away from that. I’m country, and there ain’t no other way I can be. That’s just what I am and I think the traditional style is coming back around. At some point in time, this younger generation is going to start catching on. You can already see that they are. I see it at my shows.”
The fact that this new project exists is something of a minor miracle. Every other time he tried to make a record, the music industry burned his dream to the ground. Until this year, all his hard work had always seemed to be in vain.
Shane Owens built a following in nightclubs of the Southeast for a decade. Fans flocked to hear his powerfully emotional singing. He opened shows for dozens of major stars, and word from them trickled back to Nashville’s music executives. Inevitably, he was offered a recording contract but, they only offered Owens a deal to make singles, not an album and he gracefully passed on the offer.
A second record label approached him. In 2005, a Shane Owens CD titled Let’s Get On It briefly saw the light of day. Its single, “Bottom of the Fifth,” was a hit in Texas and was halfway up the national charts when the label folded. His album was on the market for less than 100 days. Owens dusted himself off and pushed forward.
Producer James Stroud (Chris Young, Clint Black, etc.) took him under his wing. A second album was recorded and ready for release in 2009 when its record company also went under. This time, Shane Owens was badly bruised.
There was a silver lining in his second album’s demise, however. He was able to maintain ownership of the stellar songs he’d recorded with James Stroud. These now form the basis of his new CD for Amerimonte Records, along with several newly recorded tunes with the also esteemed Ed Seay (Martina McBride, Collin Raye, etc.).
The result is a pluperfect portrait of a proud country traditionalist. There is just one detail in this picture that might seem strange: Although his voice sounds marinated in Jack Daniels, this honky-tonk singer is a straight arrow. “I’ve never smoked, I don’t chew, I don’t do drugs, I don’t drink. I’ve never been in any kind of trouble. I’ve never even had a speeding ticket. Some people don’t get that.” says the outstanding barroom stylist.
On the other hand, maybe things are just right, just the way they are: “I’ve been blessed to be brought up the way I was brought up. And I’ve learned the hard way that you’ve got to be yourself. That’s what’s gonna sell: Me being me. Maybe this whole thing is meant to be, and I’ve been through all of this for a reason, and the third time’s the charm.”

http://www.tommysteeleband.com - With a distinctive and immediately identifiable sound, Tommy Steele Band is a blend of influences that brings together the edgy musicianship and rocked-out passion of early Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd, with the raw, sparse, lyrical sense of Springsteen.
Active in several bands before starting his own in 2006, Steele was used to playing more than his share of shows a year. The 2009 release of his first Nashville produced CD, THE LONG HAUL, brought him national recognition with three hit singles: positive “Watching Love Grow”, the rock guitar-edged, mid-tempo “Forever 17” and the passionate top ten Inspirational crossover Hit ballad, “What Kind of Man Would I Be.” The releases generated multiple radio tours, On-air Television appearances all over the country and produced national and international written features including Country Weekly, Music Row and Magazine of Country Music.
Tommy’s 2012 Music Row top 40 Hit single perfectly reflected the complicated dichotomy of his music. Produced by Nashville’s respected veteran singer songwriter Dave Gibson. “My Side of the Street” put Steele’s emotive voice front and center on this story of a love destined to live only in dreams. The story line with Tommy’s unique style brought a new interpretation of cultural and social divides to the song. The video was added to many television networks across the country.
In 2013 The Ultimate party song “We Ain’t Drunk” Video was released, picked up by many networks and was a hit to more than 50 Million over air and cable TV subscribers and is still in rotation as a mainstay on many networks today.
The Michigan native opened for Big & Rich at his hometown Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan and performed at 3 CMA Music Festival’s in Nashville. He’s toured the country and shared stages with megastars Leann Rimes, Gretchen Wilson, Little Big town, Big & Rich, Blackberry smoke, Dwight Yoakam, and more, he’s also entertained at venues ranging from intimate nightclubs to large festivals.
Tommy carries with him life lessons learned in his youth, and they give instant credence to his down-home manner and strong work ethic. With family roots in Detroit’s auto factories and Georgia’s clay soils, “blue collar” and “country strong” are descriptive terms for this entertainer.
“Family is everything to me, and fatherhood? Well, that’s the reward! I am humbled to create music with a vision but life experiences and my family are my inspirations.”

MODERN WEST GOT ITS START when my wife (Christine) encouraged me to reconnect musically with John Coinman.
I wasn’t really sure after all these years how it might work. I wasn’t really sure what to say. But if life has taught me anything it was not be stopped by the question or the unknown. “F… it, what do I have to lose but maybe some of the best times of my life?”
I made the call to Tucson. “John what do you think?” He never hesitated, willing to explore the idea. But it was always more than just an idea for me. It was a feeling that I had been unable to articulate. For a long time now I have felt the need to connect with people in a more meaningful way than just the autograph. I have found myself here and around the world in different situations where the only exchange has been just that…a quick signature on the run usually followed by a “gee, he’s taller than I thought.”
I always thought that music could build a stronger, more personal moment for me. It would create the opportunity for a genuine exchange much greater than the movie, TV interview or magazine. It would be real, full of mistakes and without apology. But most of all there would be the chance to have some fun. The question was, would it work? I thought it could but I wasn’t really sure. I had been out on creative limbs before, and this felt familiar.
I asked John to get some guys together starting with Blair Forward who was in the first and only band I was ever in. John would pick the rest. If we were to play together the majority of our music would have to be our own compositions. What ever else we played would be old favorites of mine. They would come from friends, some famous and some who probably should be. The rest would be from artists that I have enjoyed over the years. If we played it would be Live, Loud and Long. The idea was simple. Don’t stop the party. Everybody understood and everybody went to work.

http://www.jimmywhitemusic.com - Miserable Man spent multiple weeks at #1 on both the AC40 Hot Hit Chart as well as the Christian Top 40 Hit Chart. It also reached the Top 15 spot on the FMQB chart in early 2017.
The single is based on Paul’s letter to the Romans, passages between 7:10 - 25,
Where the song comes from:
As with so many people in this world, White has battled depression at several points in his life. In this single, White writes of feeling the depression that the Apostle Paul must have felt in his letter to the Romans, (19) I do not do the good things I want to do, but I do the bad things I do not want to do In verse (24), What a miserable man I am! Who will save me from this body that brings me death?
White does see the hope in verse (25) I thank God for saving me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So in my mind I am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful self I am a slave to the law of sin.
As with the Apostle Paul and so many people today, as well as White, the struggle with depression can be overwhelming and debilitating but there is hope in Jesus Christ our Lord and in God the Father.
Jimmy White is not a newcomer to the music scene. In his impressive thirty-year career, White has reached #1 over a dozen times on the Independent Adult Contemporary Charts, he is both the most-nominated and winning artist in the history of the IMN music awards and the New Music Awards. Jimmy has also charted four times in the Billboard AC Top 40—among other accomplishments. #Jimmywhitemusic #MiserableMan

Originally from Mount Vernon, Ky., Rae has been eager to share her talent since her church performances as a child. At 12 years of age, Rae began to craft her own songs while strumming a six-string. In high school, she performed as a member of the Kentucky All-State choir before earning a degree in Music Education at University of the Cumberlands. Prior to moving to Nashville, Rae spent three years in Vancouver, BC, Canada. She took to live performance and further enhancement of her songwriting before returning to the states in 2012 to fully pursue a solo career as a country music artist.
Rae delivered her sophomore album, Come Find Me, in March of 2017. Inspired by personal growth and vulnerability, more than half of the fifteen tracks are either written or co-written by Rae. Come Find Me features “I Need Me,” a track that has been heard previously for years and performed in numerous variations. “I Need Me” found longtime friend and producer, Shawn Gough, who helped transform the current single into the climatic ballad it is, climbing both the country and adult contemporary radio charts.
The opening shot of Camille Rae's music video for her song "I Need Me" is an almost uncomfortably close shot of her face. The camera slowly zooms out as her eyelids open, her eyes showing a glimpse of the immense grief of lost love explored in the video. "My videographer, Jacob Long, was the brilliant mind behind this shot," Rae said. "It was so vulnerable! I did feel completely exposed and raw. It also wasn't the most flattering shot, but that didn't matter to me."
Throughout the three minute long video, the camera constantly returns to this vulnerable shot. "This was the scene where I finally channeled that sadness and vulnerability I had been reaching for," Rae said. "The flood gates opened and all the crying was authentic." The power behind this stunning video stems from that one recurring image.
"I Need Me" tells the story of a woman grappling with the decision to leave a man. The first line of the song is stark and powerful: "No matter how I feel, how you feel is better." The line begins and ends the song and Rae said that it's the line that sums up the message of the song. "As humans we will forget where we were, who we were with and what we were doing, but never how we were made to feel," Rae said. The song recently hit the Top 30 on Music Row's Country Breakout Chart, making Rae the fastest rising independent country artist to chart since Aaron Watson.
Emotionally, the video was draining on Rae. "This was definitely a much harder process because it was so intimidate and vulnerable," she said. "I had to channel the exact emotions that I wanted to portray and then carefully display them in a way that wasn't too forward or too vague." Despite that, she said that the emotionally taxing element of the process was worth it because the video came together perfectly.
The sadness portrayed in the video ends on a higher note with the last scene of the video, indicating a hopefulness in the video. Rae used the video as a way to tell people to live their lives and to not be afraid of doing what is best for themselves. "Are you going to choose to stay and drown in this life around you or are you going to make the terrifying, yet liberating sacrifices to be happy and whole?" Rae said. "The last scene tells my audience that I chose me."

http://www.remattei.com- Re Mattei was born in Trenton, New Jersey, the daughter of parents who love music. Her mother played the violin and her father played the accordion. Her parents introduced her to many genres of music including country legends such as Tammy Wynette, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Johnny Rodriguez, along with the pop influences of artists like Rod Stewart and Linda Ronstadt. As a young child, Re asked her mother what those people on the radio singing did for a living. Her mother responded by saying, “that’s what they do…they’re singers,” and Re replied, “then that’s what I want to do.” She started entering talent shows and school musicals. At ten years old she began writing songs and appreciates the storytellers that paved the way like Harry Chapin and Mac Davis.
She studied at Berklee College of Music receiving a Bachelors degree in guitar performance. Two weeks after graduation she auditioned for lead guitarist and singer of an all-female seven-piece band named “Uptown Girls.” She toured the U.S., Hawaii, Japan, Singapore, and the Philippines, playing at military bases and nightclubs. After touring for three years Re moved to Nashville to become a songwriter and recording artist. She collaborated with songwriter Rick McMahon, and their song “Broken Rose” received honorable mention in the Music City Song Festival in two categories (music and lyrics). She has performed at the Opryland Hotel, Bluebird Cafe, and the Tennessee State Fair WSM-sponsored stage.
Re is currently in the studio working with producer Bartley Pursley who has worked with artists such as John Rich, Gretchen Wilson, and Randy Owen. Her first single “Country Love” written by Re and Rick McMahon will be the debut song off her up-and-coming album. Re explains, “Music has always been my medicine. When life gets tough I put on my headphones and rock back and forth to my favorite songs.” Re’s years on the road have taught her that it’s important to have fun on stage and entertain the fans. “My hope is that my music can be a medicine for others and leave them with a smile on their face and a song in their heart.”
