Tony Lucca is a Nashville-based singer/songwriter and public speaker whose catalog of music runs the gamut from soul-infused pop to tear-jerker folk balladry. His music has been featured on shows like “Parenthood,” “Friday Night Lights,” “Felicity,” and “Brothers and Sisters.” His career started on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club, alongside some of pop culture’s most standout icons like Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Keri Russell and Ryan Gosling. After a short stint in film and television, he began his music career in earnest, writing and recording songs that would quickly earn him the LA Music Award for Best Male Singer/Songwriter. In 2012, after several albums and EP releases, Lucca took third place on NBC's “The Voice,” earning himself a record deal with coach Adam Levine's 222 Records. He has toured alongside such artists as Sara Bareilles, Jonny Lang, Marc Anthony, Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, and Gabe Dixon of Tedeschi Trucks Band.
Keaton Simons is a singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist. He has released numerous albums, EPs and singles and is best known for his hundreds of film and television placements (including his song "When I Go" from the hit TV show "Suits"). In addition to his prolific solo career Keaton has played with artists ranging from Snoop Dogg to Chris Cornell to his current gig as lead guitarist for country music superstar Brett Young. Along with writing/production partner Noah Needleman and filmmaker Dennis Dugan, Keaton recently completed both the soundtrack and score for the motion picture "Love, Weddings & Other Disasters" starring Diane Keaton and Jeremy Irons.
