Caleb Dinger
22 year old singer-songwriter, Caleb Dinger has been writing songs at the piano since he was 10 years old. At 16, he got signed to a small Christian label in Oklahoma where he recorded his debut album, “Counting Stars" and toured across the northeast during his high school years. 

Soon after moving to Nashville, TN in 2014, Caleb released his latest EP entitled "Questions" with Grammy nominated producer/engineer, Charley Hubbs. Since then, he has opened/played for many various acts from the Sidewalk Prophets to Brian Bonds of Florida Georgia Line.  Ever since his 2014 release, Caleb has been hard at work honing his craft as a songwriter and piano player. 
 
Caleb writes what most people call classic piano pop/rock influenced by artists such as Bruce Hornsby, Billy Joel, and Stevie Wonder. As a man of faith, Caleb also serves as the worship leader of Crievewood United Methodist Church in Nashville, for which he writes songs to use in their weekly services. In March of 2015, he and a small rhythm section banded together at Warner Brothers Studios on music row in Nashville to record some of those songs for his latest project, "Gathered," that released in February, 2016. This project reveals a new side to Caleb and his writing: classic country roots that harken back to the music he grew up on. 

Allen Karl
Allen's love affai r with music dates back to the tender age of 12, gathering with family and friends in the kitchen of his Pottsville, Pennsylvania home and soaking up the playing techniques of his talented mother and grandfather. Combining raw talent and an insatiable appetite for learning, the young man progressed at an unbelievablerate. Recognizing his uncanny knack for picking, local rad io station WPPA hired him for the "Willie Whistle" show, a half-hour program on Saturdays that offered Allen the rare opportunity to "cut his teeth" in a formal performing and record ing medium. Encouraged by the radio station, the 17 year-old entered a talent contest at the Santa Fe Ranch in nearby Reading. Hosted by Shorty and Dolly Long and the Santa Fe Rangers, Allen stole the show and was signed to a one-year recording contract with King Records. What followed was a whirlwind introduction to some of the biggest names in the business. For the next two and a half years, he opened shows for such trailblazers as Skeeter Davis, Jeanne Sheppard, Hawkshaw Hawkens, Eddy Arnold, Wanda Jackson and the inimitable Patsy Cline. During Allen's senior year in high school, he and three classmates put together a rock and roll band called the "Shuffles" and appeared throughout areas of Pennsylvania near his hometown. They played for school and street dances, fairs and clubs.

Following his sense of duty, Allen joined the United States Air Force. But music was never far from his mind. He started his first country band while stationed in Japan-The Dixieland Playboys. The group played a string of hot spots in Tokyo, culminating in appearances at the second largest Grand Old Opry opening for Ferlin Husky, Hank Snow, The Young Jimmy Rogers and Johnny Cash. Allen also appeared one Saturday night a month at Tokyo's "Little Copa Cabana." On one occasion at the Little Copa,

Allen had the distinct privilege of playing guitar on stage for Julie London. That stage experience was invaluable--and the contacts he made would serve Allen well throughout his career. After a couple of tours in Vietnam, Allen found himself in Thailand leading an all-Thai band as a weekend headliner at the Miami Club in Udorn He spent t he next four years honing his technique and learning to read his audiences.

Jack Mosley
Jack Mosley, originally from Panama City Florida, is considered by many to be one of the best "TropRock" song writers and entertainers in the country. As an entertainer, Jack has performed all over the United States and the Caribbean and has opened shows for artist such as Johnny Cash, Tanya Tucker, Phil Vassar, The Warren Brothers, and Bad Company to name a few.

Jack is a natural born story teller and that is obvious when you listen to the songs he writes. It is no wonder that his early influences were Dan Fogleberg, Harry Chapin and Jimmy Buffett.

After living in Nashville for nine years honing his song writing skills, Jack and his wife Debra re-located back to his home State of Florida where he quickly fell into the "TropRock" music scene and started writing the kind of music that is near and dear to his heart.

Six Cd's later, Jack has proven he made the right move. With his CD's being played on radiomargaritaville.com, jimmydreamz.com and almost all of the other TropRock radio stations (both internet, satellite and standard FM), and performing shows from Key West to Michigan, he has firmly established himself as a major force in TropRock music..
aAs a solo artist or with his band, and in addition to his original music, he has years of experience performing cover songs.

Taylor & Morgan

Growing up in Middle Tennessee they were heavily influenced by country music and have adopted that style as their own. Being around so many musical influences in Nashville, Taylor & Morgan have started writing together and finding their own sound as a sister duo. With only two years apart they attend school together at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tennessee where they write and perform their music together. Taylor & Morgan believe music is the purest form of bringing joy, which is why they love to make and share their music.

Tim Spears
Deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia lives a lot of country music lovers, but none that loves it more than Tim Spears. He has been singing, writing and performing since the age of 11. While the children were out playing at all the family gatherings, Tim was inside listening to his dad and uncle sing all those old country songs. Between each song they would play, Tim would try to get a free guitar lesson from anyone that would show him anything. At the age of 17 he went to his Jr. Variety show, ( in the heat of the rock n roll era, with all teenagers there ) he did his rendition of "easy lovin" and there received his first standing ovation. At that point he knew this is where his life long ambitions were.

Tim still lives in that same hometown of Waynesboro, Virginia. and has gained the respect and admiration of a town he really loves. Since that variety show, he has appeared on The Nashville Network ( TNN ) several times and performed on the "EARNEST TUBB RECORD SHOP" show, just a few of his accomplishments.

Children are one of his main concerns. Each year, for the last 18 years, he has done a benefit concert and gives 100% of the proceeds to these needy children of his home town. He raises it locally, spends it locally and spends it on the local children....Last year, along with ‘’shopperones’’ from his town, The TIM SPEARS CHRISTMAS FUND, INC. members, they personally took 452 children shopping a the local K-mart and Wal-mart stores.
At last, Tim and his belief in God, has changed all his writing abilities, using them toward what he is calling "POSITIVE COUNTRY MUSIC". His latest effort is entitled, "IT"S ALL IN THE SONG" This is a collection of songs he has written from true experiences he has seen or been involved with. These songs are funny, patriotic, sad, warm, and some are love songs that just melt the heart. Along with his great friend and manager, Melvin Sorrells, they are trying to promote 24 songs, 2 of which Mel wrote, and take them directly to the people. The response he is getting from the people, going directly to you, rather than having promotion companies charge him enormous prices, has been staggering. His songs have gotten great reviews by Alan Jackson, The Statler Bros., Toby Keith and Vince Gill. If you like country music, you'll love Tim Spears.
