Julia Cole

Influenced by the genre-crossed locker room playlists she and her Texas volleyball teammates blasted, Julia’s musical style blends authentic country storytelling with a little Houston rhythm and attitude. Julia got her start performing the Star-Spangled Banner before her own high-school volleyball games, and was soon performing for NFL, MLB, MLS, NASCAR, and ESPN events before crowds of 75,000. She’s since signed to CAA and toured globally in over 10 countries opening for acts like Dan + Shay, Jon Pardi, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Kane Brown, The Chainsmokers, Dierks Bentley, Chase Rice, Lee Brice, Jon Langston, Eli Young Band, Chris Lane, Michael Ray, Jake Owen, Rhett Akins, LANCO, Tracey Lawrence, Tyler Farr, Love and Theft, Thompson Square, David Nail, Hunter Hayes, Canaan Smith, Jonny Lang, Kevin Fowler, Runaway June, Clare Dunn & more.

Julia brings her love for music and sports full circle by advocating for women's athletics and empowerment. ESPN, Mizuno, and Mizuno Olympians have teamed up with Julia and her music to promote multiple self-worth and confidence focused campaigns. Julia's “Now You Know Music Row” songwriter series ft. #1 Hit Songwriters and Up-And-Coming Artists also fundraised thousands for the Tennessee Boys&Girls Clubs’ sports programs.

Between Julia’s weekly radio show, #ColeTeam Countdown, on YoCo, WYCZ 96.7 FM and Twitch reaching a potential 1.3 million listeners, her TikTok #SidePieceChallenge ft single “Side Piece” blowing up by over 6,000,000, as well as the #ColeTeam Quarantine IG live series featuring Julia’s friends, (NFL, MLB, and NPF athletes, major label musicians, models, NFL Coaches, FOX and ESPN hosts, and influencers), Julia and her fans have stayed connected and helped each other through this tough pandemic. Julia’s debut, self-titled album, featuring the new

single “Hold My Hand” as well as her previous hit singles “Side Piece” and “Trust You” is available now. Cole also released a cover EP performing male songs from the female's perspective through UK Label, FrtyFve. 


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 the cinematic sweep of Brit-pop into its own hybrid. For Alyssa — a lifelong road warrior who spent her infancy aboard a tour bus, recorded a duet with Kenny Rogers at 10 years old, received her college diploma from Sir Paul McCartney, performed stadium shows as a member of the major-label duo The Sisterhood Band, and currently balances her critically-acclaimed solo career with an ongoing gig writing 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.

Nowhere is that clearer than on 2021's "New Wings." Recorded during the pandemic, it's a song about struggle, survival, and the soaring feeling of flight, delivered by a multidimensional musician who's never shied away from unexplored territory.
