Alannah McCready

Upon graduating, McCready took a job doing PR for a sports management company in New York and began writing music again. Her uncle, a recording artist in Los Angeles, gave her a connection to a music producer in Nashville, who urged her to come visit and test out a few songs. To her delight, she was told by professionals that, yes, she should be pursuing a professional musical path. She packed up her bags and moved south and has been honing her craft ever since. 

McCready is taking her can-do attitude and confidence learned from playing a primarily male-dominated sport to her music career. She takes her creativity seriously but with a healthy dose of fun and playfulness for her craft.

Jade Helliwell

Jade Helliwell seeks out authenticity in all aspects of life. She writes her truth into her music and makes a friend out of every fan. 

Born and raised in a small town in West Yorkshire UK, Jade’s world was burst open in 2017 when a video of her singing with a busker on a night in Leeds went viral. It quickly amassed 23 million views across Facebook and YouTube, and her previously released EP ‘Forget the Night’ shot back into the UK charts, reaching #1 in the country charts and #8 in the official charts. She became a Yamaha endorsed Artist, left her job as a teaching assistant to carve a career in music, and has never looked back.

Jade has mastered a notably British blend of pop and country in her sound. With her production she draws influence from the likes of Maren Morris, Cassadee Pope and Danielle Bradbery, while her lyrical storytelling is inspired by the greats, such as Patsy Cline and Dolly Parton. Writing songs about her own life and the people close to her, she forges a connection with every listener. Her honesty stirs up universal feelings to which all can relate.
