Julia Cole

When listening to Cole's music, you can hear the honesty and emotion in every lyric, while the catchy rhythms and hooks keep you up on your feet. CMT selected Cole as a NEXT Artist Discovery, and Cole's been featured on Spotify's curated country playlists “Wild Country” and “New Boots,” as well as Apple Music’s “Breaking Country" “Cool Country” and “A-List Country”. You can hear Cole’s tunes on Radio Disney Country’s airwaves as well. Cole performs for many NFL, MLB, MLS, NASA, SEC, NCAA, and NASCAR events, and incorporates her love for sports into her music career as much as possible. Cole is an advocate for women’s athletics via a movement she started with her sister called @WomenSportsSocial, and is bringing music and athletics together with help from ESPN and ESPNW. 

Julia Cole's new single, "Trust You" is breaking through the noise and catching heat. 

Jake Morrell

Jake Morrell could have come straight out of Nashville, or even from the Californian sunshine, as his music suggests; but Jake is from Norfolk, England!

Jake was ‘discovered’ by Dermot O’Leary, who featured him on his Radio 2 Show. One influential listener just so happened to be Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis, who immediately asked Jake to perform at the iconic festival.

Jake recorded his debut single with London based producer Brett Shaw (Florence & The Machine, The Kooks & Dry the River). The song entitled “Wire and Thorns” reached No.2 in the iTunes country charts on the first day of release.

This led to Jake being invited to perform at this year’s Country 2 Country festival, where he premiered his first major single, the appropriately titled ‘Englishman (Trying to Write a Country Song)’ – written and produced with the Grammy-winning writer/producer Kipper.
