Tyler Hilton began his professional career in music in 2000. “Rolling Stone Magazine” compared him to his contemporary, Howie Day, while others have compared Hilton to Elton John, both vocally and instrumentally. Since the release of his debut album, Hilton has ventured into acting, guest starring on The CW's television show “One Tree Hill” as the talented but somewhat pompous Chris Keller, and playing the role of Elvis Presley in the Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line.” He also appeared in Taylor Swift's music video "Teardrops on My Guitar."
Teddy Geiger was always gifted with music, learning piano from his grandparents at an early age and guitar by the time he was 8. By that time, he had started writing and recording his own songs as well. He probably would never have considered becoming an entertainer if it wasn't for his mother. Teddy was entered into the VH1 2004 TV Contest “In Search of the Partridge Family.” Even though he didn't get the part he was auditioning for (he was deemed too young by the producers), he did catch the eye of top music producer Billy Mann, who scribbled down his number on a piece of paper for Teddy before he left. Teddy was signed to Columbia Records for a six-record deal. Teddy released “Underage Thinking” on Columbia, generating the hits “Confidence (For You I Will)” and “These Walls.”
Platinum-selling recording artist Ryan Cabrera picked up the guitar at the age of 16, which sparked his passion for writing music. After spending night after night in bars, clubs, and any restaurant that would take him, he landed his first record deal. By 21, he was in the studio with his mentor, Johnny Rzeznik (Goo Goo Dolls), writing and producing his first major label debut “Take It All Away.” Cabrera quickly hit the road touring and hasn't stopped since.
