Taylor Phelan
Taylor Phelan
Taylor Phelan is a songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist and indie-rock artist. Phelan was raised within a tight-knit musical family in his home state of Texas and began to play guitar and write his own songs at 16, cutting his teeth at coffee shops. He started his professional career as the founder and frontman for the Chicago-based alternative band, The Canes. In 2014, Phelan was a favorite contestant on the seventh season of NBC’s hit reality series, The Voice, an experience that revealed his tremendous talent as a solo artist. In 2015, shortly after signing with the indie label, Native Nine Records, Phelan gravitated back to his southern roots and teamed up with Nashville-based producer Joshua D Niles to work on his first collection of solo material. Now touring the country with a powerhouse backing band, his debut EP will be released in Summer 2017.

"Her melodic, gentle songwriting and performing capture a sound that is tough to pull off but she does so perfectly. Innocence in songs is a balancing act Margo May somehow pulls off and the songs have a beautiful simplicity that can be moving in a very quiet way."
-SVP, Joe Cuello, MTV Creative Music Integration.

Doby Watson
The Kansas City songwriter traces his "early life crisis" to the funeral of a cousin last year who was close in age to Watson. At the time, Watson was living in an art gallery. He had a tiny bedroom with a shoulder-level ceiling. When he finally got tired of crouching, he moved back in with his parents and got a job at Olive Garden. He seriously considered giving up music.

"A lot of goals I would have thought I'd have reached by that age, I hadn't," Watson, now 23, says. "For a long time, I convinced myself that if I actually pursued music, a lot of people would be disappointed in me. But they're actually not — they're actually proud of me."

Instead of attending college, Watson spent his young-adult years touring the country with a guitar, a box of Clif Bars ("one for lunch, then a real meal for dinner"), and a bunch of sad and beautiful homespun songs that are as sparse and haunting as those of Leonard Cohen or Jason Molina. Watson still books his own tours and plays in bedrooms, art galleries, lofts and — when he has to — bars.
