About Carter Faith
Combining the emotive lyricism and pointed perspective of Taylor Swift with the chill aesthetic and refreshing candor of Kacey Musgraves, Carter Faith has been named the “future of the next 10 years of Nashville” by Apple Music’s Ward Guenther. This high praise was recently supported after Spotify claimed Faith on their annual “Hot Country Artists To Watch” list while also including her in their Fresh Finds multi-genre program – marking the up-and-comer as the first country artist to ever be a part of this program. She has shared the stage with artists like Cole Swindell, Carly Pearce, Old Dominion, Chris Young, Kip Moore and many more. Faith has garnered a total of over thirty million streams with her recent releases “Greener Pasture,” “Cowboys & Dreamers,” “Joyride,” “Easy Pill,” as well as her debut EP Let Love Be Love. In addition to all of this success, she’s received noteworthy praise from prestigious outlets like The New York Times, HuffPost, People Magazine, and Billboard. www.CarterFaith.com
About Robyn Ottolini
Introducing the Eminem of country music. Well, sort of. Warner Music Nashville’s Robyn Ottolini isn’t a guy who raps, but she does make music that will either piss you off or make you fall in love with her. Maybe a little of both. Whether she’s cursing, faking an orgasm, admitting to misdemeanours, or calling out a cheating ex, you’ll find it all in her catalogue of music. Robyn Ottolini is Nashville’s newest, most unapologetic, and most authentic artist and writer. www.RobynOttolini.com
