"You’re evergreen... I’m feeling warm in the wintertime... and it seems... it’s getting colder but I’m feeling fine” the chorus floods forward from the title track of Jake Wesley Rogers’ debut Evergreen EP - speaking of an affair of the heart on the surface, while metaphorically being a reflection of all the changes Jake Wesley Rogers was experiencing in his life.

Moving to Nashville at the age of 18 to study songwriting at Belmont University, Rogers quickly caught the attention of the city’s players - inking a songwriting deal with Sony/ATV in his freshman year, and cowriting with the industry’s leading talent. His age is starkly contrasted with his immensely powerful lyrics and equally rousing singing voice - evoking constant comparison to Sam Smith, James Blake, and John Legend.

Singing to active listeners in all corners of the globe online, Rogers’ cover of Only You quickly eclipsed 800,000 streams without slowing, while his Evergreen EP finds its way to thousands of unique listeners each week. Live, Rogers’ authenticity in his stage presence is a force which must be experienced to be believed. With his sights set on the road, and new music in the works for fall 2018, it is safe to say we are just seeing the beginning of what Jake Wesley Rogers has to offer.

    Joy Oladokun, is a singer/song-writer from a "small farming town in Arizona" who combines the sounds of roots rock, with folk songrwriting and a voice that oozes with soul and honesty. Her debut album, "Carry", ranges from a stripped confessional ballad about being brave enough to leave a lover, to an electrifying rock number that will take you back to 1975. Her eclectic style doesn't take away from her mature and authentic lyricism, however. When Joy writes and sings, you hear the voice of someone who has lived the song and is willing to re-live it again and again everytime she performs it.
