Alyssa Bonagura

A celebrated songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Alyssa Bonagura has spent the past decade fine-tuning a sound that reaches far beyond her Nashville roots. It's a sound that blurs the boundaries between genres, mixing the southern storytelling of country music, the free-thinking spirit of rock & roll, and cinematic pop into its own hybrid. For Alyssa - A lifelong road warrior who grew up on a tour bus with CMA & ACM-nominated parents Baillie & The Boys (RCA Records).

She recorded a duet with Kenny Rogers at 10 years old, received her college diploma from Sir Paul McCartney at the Liverpool Institute of the Performing Arts, and performed stadium shows opening for Rod Stewart as a member of the major-label duo The Sisterhood Band, and currently balances her critically acclaimed solo career with an ongoing gig writing and producing songs for Jessie James Decker, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler and others— it's also a sound that's every bit as diverse as her own story.

Splitting her time between Nashville and London, Alyssa is making waves through the country music scene with sold-out headline shows and performances at some of the UK's biggest festivals, including C2C at the 02 Arena, Highways at the Royal Albert Hall, BST Hyde Park supporting Billy Joel, The Long Road Festival, direct support tour with Caylee Hammack & Tenille Arts, and Wembley Arena Jags Country show supporting Clint Black & Brian Kelley. Additionally, she has gained major radio support from Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.

Gary Quinn, hailing from Omagh, Northern Ireland, seamlessly blends his roots with Nashville's vibrant country scene. With 8 BCMA Awards under his belt, his music is a dynamic fusion of traditional country and contemporary flair. Achieving UK number ones and spots on influential playlists like Spotify's Wild Country, his impact on the genre is undeniable. Known for his captivating live performances and international tours, Gary has shared stages with Phil Vassar and others. Beyond his artistry, he mentors aspiring UK artists and co-founded Buckle & Boots and Country on the Clyde festivals, cementing his role in shaping the UK country scene. Gary Quinn's journey from Omagh to Nashville via Manchester reflects his unwavering dedication to country music, establishing him as a leading figure in its evolving landscape.
