Will Varley
Will Varley
Singer-songwriter Will Varley has come a long way since his early days haunting the open mics of South London and busking around on The Underground. After releasing his 5th studio album in 2018, his largely sold out UK tour drew to a close with a triumphant show at London’s legendary Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

There is a depth to Will’s songwriting that sets him apart, and has propelled his music far and wide. From songs like ‘The Man Who Fell To Earth’ which tells the heart-wrenching story of an Angolan immigrant attempting to enter the UK, to the hyper-engaging ‘Weddings and Wars’ in which he attempts a history of the world in under four minutes, Varley’s songs seem to transcend themselves, marrying vivid imagery, politics, emotion and surrealism to capture his musings in a way that is quite remarkable.
Ava Rowland
Ava Rowland
From performing at Nashville's legendary Bluebird Cafe and Puckett's to taking the stage at festivals throughout Kansas, Ohio, and Kentucky, Ava Rowland is a talent worth keeping an eye on. The contemporary country music artist cites an eclectic list of artistic inspirations ranging from Carrie Underwood to Lauren Daigle to Elvis Presley. Ava is also a featured artist at PCG Universal, "The Science of Artist Development," an artist development program headed up by long-time music industry veteran Bernard Porter.

Ava has released her debut EP titled Polaroid Picture, which is produced by well-known Nashville songwriter, Britton Cameron (toured with Toby Keith, Hootie and the Blowfish, Leann Rimes). The songs on the EP carry deeply personal messages, including "My Last Words," which was inspired by the Parkland school shooting in Florida and "Indiana Ohio," which explores the hardships that come with long-distance relationships. The EP will be available for streming and purchase on all major platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon.

When she isn't working on music, Ava can be found advocating "Rachel's Challenge," a unique organization founded in the memory of Columbine High School shooting victim Rachel Scott. The foundation creates programs which promote positive climates in schools, including Ohio's Wellington School District, for which Ava raised $5,500 to bring in "Rachel's Challenge." Ava enjoys spending time with her family and volunteering at her church. She also likes to watch television shows like Friends and movies like 8 Seconds, The Wizard of Oz, and E.T.
