Wes Shipp was born in Crystal River, Florida on August 3, 1992. Wes started his music career traveling the country and playing on various street corners. 
 After struggling with drug addiction and being homeless for years, Wes decided that it was time to become serious about his music career. Wes was able to get clean from drugs and push forward. 
 In 2019, Wes was discovered outside of a Wal-Mart in Little Rock, Arkansas where he was recorded playing Riley Green’s song, “I Wish Grandpas Never Died.” After the individual recorded the video, he proceeded to upload it to Facebook. Overnight the video went viral and received over 400K views. It was then that Wes was noticed by people within the music industry. 
 Wes released his first song in May 2021 called “My Old Man.” Wes wrote this heartfelt song about his dad, who ironically had a heart attack 4 days after it was written, but is thankfully doing well today. The song quickly grabbed the attention of many of his fans and after realizing the impact the song had on people Wes said, “This is only the beginning.” 
 Wes credits numerous artists who have inspired him to pursue his dreams as an outlaw country music artist including: Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard, Billy Don Burns, & Dallas Moore.



Jonathan Mitchem, an American Singer-Songwriter from Alexandria, VA, began his musical journey as a drummer, but he’s since become an accomplished guitarist and singer. His songwriting, a style deeply rooted in his heritage traced back to the hills of Welch, West Virginia, is comprised of intricate melodies and lyrics that harken back to a time where music was pulled from hardship and life experience. He’s played venues that have been graced by notable names like Zac Brown, Keith Urban, Journey, Steve Miller Band, and Dave Matthews.



15 year old country musician with inspirations from Tyler Childers, Colter Wall, Etc.
