More Info

Miranda Lambert: After garnering attention on the reality competition series, "Nashville Star," Miranda Lambert has proved that she has the chops to earn the title of Female Vocalist two years in a row by the Academy of Country Music. With songs like "Kerosene" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," Lambert has combined attitude and sass with her carefully crafted lyrics and polished playing style. Country's reigning queen is currently on tour, Miranda Lambert tour dates are booked at over two dozen shows this spring and summer 2011.

This native Texan was raised by her private investigator parents in rural Lindale, Texas. Her father taught her about guns, hunting, and Garth Brooks and Lambert soon developed an interest in performing country music. She started singing early on, with her dad on guitar, and by sixteen she landed the opportunity to record music in Nashville but soon returned after her disenchantment with the manufactured sound that they wanted her to produce. Lambert finished high school and became lead singer of the local band at the Reo Palm Isle Ballroom. Lambert got her chance to shine as a solo star on the USA Networks television show, "Nashville Star," where she finished in third place and inked a deal with Epic Records.

Staying true to her passion for authentic country music, she co-wrote eleven of the final twelve cuts on her debut album, "Kerosene." Of her songwriting, Lambert stated, "I mean every word I say in every lyric of every song" and "if you're into honesty, I have the records for you!" Her heartfelt lyrics and her genuine personalty translated into country superstardom for the young singer. Her debut produced four top 40 singles and was eventually certified platinum by the RIAA. Miranda Lambert tour dates were scheduled in the opening slot for country superstars Dierks Bentley and Toby Keith on their respective national tours.

She returned to the studio in 2007 to record her sophomore effort, the aptly titled "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," which yielded the domestic abuse inspired single, "Gunpowder and Lead." The album was also certified platinum and it earned Lambert the award for Album of the Year at the 2008 ACM Awards. Lambert achieved critical and commercial success early on, however, she continues to rack up career highlights and acclaim.

Lamber returned to the studio in 2009 to record her third release, "Revolution," once again contributing her writing abilities to the majority of the tracks. The singles, "White Liar," and "The House That Built Me," garnered her critical acclaim. The 2009 Miranda Lambert concert schedule included her first headlining tour, "Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars," which had scheduled dates at over 22 cities. While on tour it was announced that she was nominated for a record setting 9 CMA awards at the 2010 ceremony where she earned awards for Female Vocalist and Album of the Year. The critical acclaim only continued when she was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Female Country vocal performance for the "House that Built Me," at the February, 2011 ceremony.

Following her huge wins at the ACM and Grammy Awards in 2011, Lambert will hit the studio and the road this spring. Miranda Lambert tour dates for her "Revolution" outing have her on the road throughout the spring and summer. Make sure you catch Lambert's fiery performances.

Jon Pardi: EMI Records Nashville artist Jon Pardi may be new to the country music scene, but his strikingly original songs and relaxed confidence would suggest otherwise. His sound is undeniably country — paying homage to some of his musical heroes such as Dwight Yoakam, George Strait and Alan Jackson —with his lived-in voice and authentic delivery. But it's his carefree musical style combined with his high-energy live show which give this singer-songwriter his own niche in a diverse country landscape. Hailing from a small town in Northern California, Pardi's first taste of country music stardom started in his Grandmother's house, where he sang to her with the radio and on karaoke tapes at the tender age of 3. The singer-songwriter spent his youth perfecting his craft – by 8 years old, he was playing the guitar and at 12, he was writing his own songs. Pardi had his first band at age 14, performing a mixture of classic rock and country, all the while polishing his live performance skills. Determined to make his dream of country music fame a reality, Pardi moved to Nashville at 22 years old, where his unique musical style gained the attention of Song Factory which led to a publishing contract, and later a record deal. Earlier this year, Pardi signed with the legendary EMI, home to recording artists as varied and successful as Frank Sinatra, Garth Brooks, and Keith Urban. Pardi has shared the stage with Eric Church, Pat Green, Dierks Bentley and recently opened for Luke Bryan's "Spring Break" tour. He is currently working on songs for his debut album.

Lucie Silvas: Lucie Silvas (born September 4, 1977 in Surrey) is a British singer-songwriter. Her singing, whilst playing the piano, has led to comparisons to other artists of the genre, such as Delta Goodrem.

Lucie Silvas (b. Lucie Joanne Silverman) is half Jewish, half Catholic, although unreligious. Her mother is Scottish and her father is a New Zealander.[1] Lucie grew up in New Zealand and left school at sixteen, where she became a backing vocalist for ex-Take That vocalist Gary Barlow and singer-songwriter Judie Tzuke. In 2000, Lucie signed to Chrysalis Records and recorded an album, entitled Forget Me Not - with tracks including the single "It's Too Late," "Diggin' a Hole" and "Forget Me Not." "It's Too Late" was commercially released in the UK, but failed to make an impact on the chart, and Silvas was subsequently dropped from her record label, prior to the release of her second single and debut album.

Silvas had also signed a publishing deal for her songwriting, and so, despite being without a record label to release her music, she continued writing, and had songs recorded and released by British artists including Sarah Whatmore, Gareth Gates, Rachel Stevens and Liberty X (who scored a top 10 hit single with the track, "Jumpin'").

Silvas lives in Leicester with her fiancé, Leicester Tigers and Ireland rugby player Geordan Murphy[2]. Her older sister Mia Silvas is also a singer-songwriter of her own right.

[Breathe In]

In 2003, Lucie was signed to Mercury Records, and recorded her second album, Breathe In, which was to become her official debut. Much of Breathe In was co-written with Judie Tzuke, for whom Silvas sang backing vocals for many years. BBC Radio 2 commissioned a radio show to track Silvas' development in the music industry, supporting her career, and adding her tracks to their playlist. The first single from the album, "What You're Made Of," entered the official UK charts at number 7, and a few weeks later the album debuted and peaked at number 11 (although it has returned to this position on multiple occasions). Following TV appearances on the Ivor Novello Elton John tribute show, and "All Time Greatest Love Songs" with Ronan Keating, Lucie released her second single from the album, "Breathe In", which debuted at number 6. Silvas then released further singles; "The Game Is Won," "Don't Look Back" and re-released "Forget Me Not," which entered the charts at numbers 38, 34 and 76, respectively.

Following the release of the "Breathe In" single in Britain, Silvas took her music to Europe, including Germany and the Netherlands, where she achieved critical acclaim and released a special Europe-only single, "Nothing Else Matters," her cover of the Metallica song. Breathe In was also re-released in the Netherlands as a special 2-disc edition, featuring a full live concert recorded there. She also re-recorded "What You're Made Of" for the Spanish and French markets, working with Antonio Orozco and Grégory Lemarchal respectively. A special re-recorded version of the song, featuring the Metropole Orchestra was released as the fourth and final single from the album in the Netherlands. In 2003, she did a duet with Spanish singer Natalia called This Time, and in 2004 also wrote the first single off Natalia's third album, called Sombras (Shades).

Silvas embarked on her second sell-out UK tour in November 2005, having seen Breathe In be certified platinum in the UK. Silvas continued writing during this time, including collaborating with the critically acclaimed songwriter Eg White, with whom she wrote the Will Young single "Who Am I".

[The Same Side]

Lucie's second album The Same Side was recorded in late 2006. It was released in October 2006 in the Netherlands and in March 2007 in the UK and the rest of Europe. The first UK single, "Last Year" was premiered on BBC Radio 2 in late August 2006, and a duet with Marco Borsato, "Everytime I Think of You," in the Netherlands. The Same Side was produced by Danton Supple, who produced Coldplay's X&Y. In the Netherlands, "Everytime I Think of You" charted on #35 on downloads only, topping the Dutch Top 40 in the next 3 weeks. It became her first Number 1 single in the Netherlands.

"Last Year" was the first single in the UK and peaked at #79, and #114 in Republic of Ireland. Following this setback, Mercury Records decided to postpone the UK release of her new album, which had been scheduled for October 2006; it was re-scheduled for March 12 2007.

The second single chosen was "Sinking In", a Pop/Rock song released on March 5, 2007 in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The single was released as a download only and did not create much interest and did not enter the charts at all.

The album charted at #62 on the UK Albums Chart in its first week, selling 8,000 copies in its first week. At the second week, the album charted outside the Top 100, selling only 2,000 more copies. A DVD of The Same Side has been released in the Netherlands.
