Amusician’s musician, Ron Pope can do it all: sing his heart out, rip a guitar apart like his life depends on it, write a powerful anthem or a heartbreaking ballad, and rock a crowd anytime, anywhere. Pope has garnered critical acclaim the world over for his gorgeous and unmistakable voice, electrifying stage presence, incredible songcraft, and high octane, blues-rock fueled guitar fireworks that hit listeners square in the gut. Within a year of stepping out on his own, he’d sold hundreds of thousands of singles and had offers from a number of major labels. He eventually chose to sign with Universal Republic. After finishing his successful tenure as a Universal Republic recording artist, Pope decided that it was time to step out and shape the next phase of his career on his own terms.

Pope received the benefit of nationwide television exposure as a musical guest on MTV’s TRL and through multiple placements on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance. Following one such placement, two of his albums exploded onto the iTunes top album chart at the same time. «Whatever It Takes» combines rafter shaking, arena ready anthems, with ballads exploring the depths of human emotion, and everything in between to create something that is uniquely Ron Pope. Likened to artists as diverse as Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, and U2, Pope’s musicality allows him to satisfy listeners of all kinds.

Josiah Leming is a 22 year old American-born Singer/Songwriter and global recording artist. He discovered at the age of 10 an insatiable love for music, and devoted the majority of his pre-teen years to musical discovery and creation. Josiah is most notably known for a brief tenure on season 7 of the television show «American Idol», on which he made a name for himself performing original songs and accompanying himself on piano. Warner Brothers Records executives signed him a month after the airing of the show. Josiah spent 3 tumultuous years on WBR, releasing two EPs titled «Angels Undercover EP» and «Punk Ass Rain EP» and finally in the fall of 2010 released his debut album «Come on Kid» behind a weak label promotional effort. He dropped from the label’s roster at the end of the promotional tour for the record.

In the coming weeks, he released his management, booking agent, business management, and publicist. He gathered his unrecorded songs and an arsenal of new songs and began to envision a new record, the record he always wanted to make. He called upon his favorite musicians, mostly personal friends, to be a part of the creation of a record free of corporate sway. After a summer of hours turned to days and weeks on end in the studio, he has now appeared with his sophomore album «Another Life». The first single off the new record, «One Last Song» - one of Josiah’s most revered tunes - wasted no time in breaking into the iTunes top 100 charts. His second single, «Too Young», is already getting airplay in local and college markets. Josiah Leming has risen and fallen, and risen and fallen, and he is certainly rising again.

23-year-old, Philly-bred singer-songwriter Jesse Ruben freely confides that he’s done a bit of «obsessing» over his second album, The Ones That Matter. Ruben’s expansive and deeply compassionate point of view has resonated strongly with an ever-growing audience, whom the performer has cultivated with virtually nonstop touring and persistent online networking; as a result, he’s sold some 5,000 copies of Honesty on his own. The online community also came in handy when he was recording his debut album. «I had no money, and five of my friends held a Facebook fundraiser for me,» he reports. «They presented me with a giant check for $2,500 on my twenty-first birthday.» And though elements of this initial effort seem distant to him now, Ruben credits Honesty with giving him a leg up in building his audience; in addition to the brisk sales of his debut, he continues to enjoy rapturous fan feedback about its songs.
