Struggle Jennings
The grandson of legendary Country Music icon Waylon Jennings, Struggle is part of a long legacy of Gangsters, Outlaws and Rock Stars.. Growing up as a black-sheep in his family, he fought his way out of the streets of West Nashville and into the studio where he would create the foundation for what has become his personal contribution to the Jennings family legacy..

Struggle's message of strength, determination and courage in the face of adversity continues to connect and resonate with people around the world. By sharing his story with honesty and passion he has developed a large and loyal fanbase who relate not only to his music but also to his personal journey.

Since being released from prison in 2016 Struggle has performed for sold out crowds across the country and released multiple projects. He is finally poised to take his place as a true modern day Outlaw and secure his position as the Godfather of the burgeoning Outlaw Hip Hop Rock & Roll movement.
Lakeview

Straight from a Country song – two guys meet and start a band, realize the same girl broke their heart, and then make a spur-of-the-moment decision to hop in a car fueled on neon dreams en route to Nashville – but no, this is the real-life story of LAKEVIEW.

Jesse Denaro and Luke Healy make up the Nashville-by-way-of-Pittsburgh duo, infusing Country soul, Rock scope, and Pop ambition, into a singular style rooted in old-school storytelling and elevated by carpe diem attitude and edgy.

“We love writing and we have a ton of songs that are traditional Country, but it’s cool to push the envelope and see what we can get away with too,” admits Healy. “We want to disrupt and blur the lines even more.”

Their no regrets introduction to the genre comes by way of “work hard, play harder” anthem, “Poor Me,”  and red flag-raising knockout, “Eyes Closed” – both tagging Denaro and Healy as co-writers and co-producers. Cody Quistad (X) co-penned “Poor Me” with LAKEVIEW, as Kevin Bard (Dan + Shay’s #1 hit “How Not To”) joined the pair as a co-writer on “Eyes Closed.”

Lap steel vibrates beneath a steady beat as guitar builds from a hummable riff into an electrified solo on “Poor Me,” with their debut chanting, “Take one down, pass it around, so poor me, poor me up another round.

Grinding it out between odd jobs to make a buck, like bartending, building pools, bouncing, and sleeping in vans on tour with cold SpaghettiOs as their main meal, “‘Poor Me’ is about our lives,” explains Denaro, before Healy adds, “We both worked manual labor jobs and have shoveled the shit of life – but when we’d get a day off, we’d go harder than anybody that made the little money we did.”

“Eyes Closed” hits just as hard, but is more of a sucker-punch to the heart, with told-you-so lyrics and a pumped-up verby electronic production fueled by a driving backbeat. “We worked the hardest on ‘Eyes Closed’ in the studio because we needed to make sure that it got its do justice,” recalls Healy. “We feel like it’s one of the strongest songs we’ve ever been a part of.”

Late nights and early mornings under the influence of a bottle and guitar, LAKEVIEW has the DNA of Country music coursing through its veins. “It’s America’s music – this is our genre, being a born-and-raised American,” states Healy. “No matter what elements are going on in the music as far as production, the stories hold true. Country is all about connecting.” Denaro adds, “We hope people relate to us on that same level.”

 Originally from just outside New York City, Denaro was raised by musicians – as his mom was a piano teacher and his dad played the drums. Taught the drums by age 3 and later mastering the keys, he began performing live at 12, including playing worship at church until he was 22 years old. Healy, a native of Pittsburgh, relates to the same homegrown love of music, claiming, “It’s really special how that played a huge role in my life and I didn’t even realize at the time that my dad was basically teaching me how to write Country music – when he didn’t write music at all.” Healy further explains, “Taking long trips, going up to the lake to fish, or working in the driveway on the car’s brakes, even splitting wood – hated that by the way – but, he would always play these Country mixtapes he made. As a little kid I was singing these songs all the time and I didn’t even know they were Country songs, but growing older, I’m like, ‘Man, these songs were so good and so relevant, and they’re still relevant today.’ Nothing will ingrain as deep as those songs did as a kid.”

With a career backbone in Metal, as Healy notched ten years with Facedown Records’ Those Who Fear and Denaro a part of Von Wolfe, plus a heartbeat pulsing to mixtapes of Country legends such as Randy Travis, Don Williams, Conway Twitty, with a ‘90s dash of Toby Keith, Big & Rich, and Brooks & Dunn, LAKEVIEW is unapologetic in their cutting-edge sound. “We’ve come to realize that one of us without the other isn’t a good mix,” details Denaro. And Healy agrees, “This is not a business arrangement, these songs are an outpouring of what’s important to us and who we are musically to the core.” 

LAKEVIEW is grabbing the attention of critics with Country Now dubbing them the “next big act in Country music” and being featured on The Boot’s New Songs You Need to Hear list. And they’re just getting started.

Blake Banks

    The man, the myth, the million dollar mullet himself, Midwest singer/songwriter and all around American bad ass BLAKE BANKS is regarded as this generation's most genuine artist. Most recognized for his songs with multi award winning platinum recording artist Post Malone featured on his album Shameless. His music exceeds the expectations of most genres coming straight from the underground independently aiming for the Top40 charts. 

Blake has gained fans across the nation touring all over the US with some of music’s top influential artists such as Colt Ford, Ludacris, Mickey Avalon, Moonshine Bandits, The Pharcyde, Struggle Jennings, G-Eazy, Atmosphere, Riff Raff, Rehab, and Ouija Mac just to name a few in recent years. Playing everywhere across America from honky tonks, to saloons, theaters, casinos, festivals, expos, just about any type of music venue or event you could think of, he’s played it. His music has reached international fans world wide so Blake stays passport ready. 

Life on the road is nothing new for Banks who grew up migrating with rap groups around the midwest, touring with trending artists throughout his teenage years. By the age of 16 Blake was performing coast to coast nationally and internationally in South Korea and other countries. Blake packed up and left the Midwest in his early 20’s dropping out of collage after pursuing a BA in marketing to follow his passion for music. Realizing early on in his youth that he was all in when it comes to developing his talents.

Born on March 2nd 1990 in Davenport, Iowa, Blake grew up along the banks of the Mississippi River between the QuadCities and Chicago. Growing up listening to artists like Master P, Blake had a desire early on to be a “hip hop backpack rapper” which inspired him to grab the nearest computer and start recording himself. By 2002 at the age of 12 Blake found himself in the studio recording full on songs. When it came time for him to get a job in high school he worked for a local record store where he would shrink wrap his own albums and stick them on the shelf right next to chart topping artists and hot selling albums of the week when he wasn’t selling them at his live shows. In 2011 Blake had made his way out to Los Angeles, California to play his first show and by 2015 he had packed up his car and moved out to the West Coast with damn near the clothes on his back and his laptop. It was then and there that he found himself in the studio working on his Album “Shameless” with Post Malone.

Blake went on to release back to back albums from 2015-2018, including “The Bachelor Vol.1 + Vol.2” and “Field of Dreams”. In 2019 Blake released his single “BLU” and with it he released a game changing music video. That was just the first of many singles to come that would eventually build the bulk of the 2022 Blake Banks hit album titled “Risky Business”. This album holds 17 songs and 13 music videos that uniquely showcases his soulful sound that he has developed over the years in house side by side with his engineer The Ambulance Factory.

The King of Outlaw Music blends Rock, Country, and Blues together in a very Pop/ Hip Hop way, all while simultaneously layering his own homegrown lyrics straight from his soul with a Rap style that pays tribute to his classic ’90s style roots. He’s accumulated hundreds of millions of streams over the years while delivering eyegasming music videos that can be found streaming across YouTube and gaining notoriety with your favorite publications, podcasts, and online blogs such as Lyrical Lemonade. The unsigned independent artist has another album in the works that he will be systematically releasing throughout 2023. There will be no short supply of music or video coverage as he releases BTS tour recap videos, vlogs, and live feeds that will ave deeper into the personal life of Blake Banks. Kicking off the year with a new single and video for his fans titled, “Bad Habits”. If you are a lover of music, Blake is known for leaking his unreleased hits on the road with his female DJ backing him up on vocals. His show is one you don’t want to miss, arguably “better in person” with his heartfelt moments and personal stories he shares between songs. Once he steps on stage you know this ain’t your average rodeo, it’s a Blake Banks party. Everyone in the house is guaranteed to have a good time. Be sure to keep an eye on your calendar as Blake makes his way to a city near you.
