In a male-dominated business, Alyssa Trahan is giving the guys a run for their money. A jill-of-all-trades, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and audio engineer, Alyssa began making waves in Nashville as soon as she moved from her hometown of East Rochester, N.Y. in 2016. Just two short years later, in January 2018, she signed her first publishing deal. Alyssa also puts her skills to use as a producer, producing not only her own music and demos but music and tracks for several other artists and writers as well.
Alyssa is able to blur genre lines with her modern pop production mixed with traditional country instrumentation, winning fans over of all genres. Empowerment is a theme that crops up often in Alyssa’s clever songwriting along with her catchy melodies and sweet vocals. The release of her single "Ain't Ever Goin' Back” garnered more than 1 Million views on Tik Tok, leading Guitar Girl Magazine to say, “Alyssa Trahan is a force to be reckoned with and a killer guitarist as well." Her most recent single, a 117 Music/The Orchard release, “Psychology” made quite a buzz, premiering in American Songwriter and featured on Spotify's New Music Nashville playlist.
Used to playing over 100 shows a year and captivating audiences with her energetic live shows opening for the likes Jana Kramer, Josh Turner, Lee Greenwood, Lee Ann Womack, Midland, and many more, 2020 proved Alyssa had no plans of slowing down. As the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the United States, Alyssa kept writing, recording, and producing. The multi-instrumentalist is now ready to showcase her creativity and talents with the world. Her first studio album is set to release in early 2021.
Alyssa continues to show that she is multi-talented by dabbling in the acting world with multiple musicals and commercial credits. Not only has she appeared in commercials, but her music has been featured in them as well as multiple films. As American Songwriter wrote, “It’s not that Alyssa Trahan wants to take over country music. Just know that if it ever comes to that, Trahan is a woman who can literally run the show.” With her fast-growing and dedicated fan base, talent, and determination, the sky is truly the limit.
The Young Fables (TYF) are the promising Modern Traditional Country™ duo comprised of three-time American Idol vet Laurel Wright and Gretsch endorsed guitarist Wesley Lunsford. The team is best known for having been selected by Shania Twain to appear on USA’s showcase television series Real Country.
The act hails from Maryville, TN and has already collected impressive accolades including the Grand Prize at the Texaco Country Showdown which landed Laurel on the Ryman Auditorium stage at age 16. TYF first engaged and organically expanded their grassroots following while on the road supporting their debut release Two in 2017. They've sold out appearances at the City Winery in Nashville, TN and the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, NC in addition to appearing with such notable acts as Lauren Alaina, Josh Turner, Sara Evans, Chris Janson, Randy Houser, Delta Rae, Liz Longley and Chris Lane. Capturing the ears of three of the industry's most revered names, Keith Urban said they "had me immediately," Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta praised "a flawless vocal” and Sheryl Crow tweeted, “Just heard The Young Fables in the Nashville Airport. Laurel’s as good as any country singer out there!”
The nationally syndicated Cumulus morning show The Ty Bentli Show embraced the duo featuring them regularly in the hot topic #10MinuteTune segment. In addition, CMT exclusively premiered the music videos for “Completely” and “Half as Good” with both going on to garner regular rotation on country music video channels. Following the launch in May of 2018, the rave reviews and impact of their sophomore release Old Songs, a ten song album produced by the Grammy Award winning Mitch Dane, secured TYF their official debut at the CMA Music Festival on the Spotlight Stage. Their milestone year closed with two breakthroughs. Rolling Stone spotlighted TYF with a “10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week” with the release of their adaptation of the Patsy Cline iconic hit “Crazy” stating, “Simple and heartbreakingly direct…a poignant performance that’s as lonely as the song’s lyrics.” Also, via an invitation from Shania Twain, TYF were featured on USA Network’s Real Country premiere featuring the aforementioned Twain alongside Jake Owen, Travis Tritt and special guests Big & Rich. “When I heard Laurel’s voice for the first time, it was just extremely impressive,” said Shaina. “Wes is a perfect partner for Laurel’s voice. I fell in love with these guys as a genuine, authentic talent and sound. We need you in this industry right now.”
The Young Fables are gearing up for the release of their feature documentary 'The Fable of a Song', chronicling a remarkable series of events that rocked TYF in 2018. Meanwhile, high praises from Rolling Stone and THE PLAYHOUSE TOUR (a route of venues and house concerts across America) are helping to secure the team’s spot on the story of country music.
