Szlachetka: Rolling Stone hailed SZLACHETKA as one of the 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know, describing his forthcoming album as "a soundtrack for both the highway and the heartland... a collection of road-dog roots-rockers and Americana ballads inspired by the people (and places) he's left behind in the rearview mirror." H. Kenneth: After graduating college with a degree in vocal performance and jazz guitar, H. Kenneth landed in Nashville in 2008 with hopes of beginning a new path. He began this journey to success as a songwriter armed only with an acoustic guitar, a backpack and a laptop. As many who come to Nashville do, Kenny found himself with large aspirations and few opportunities. Rather than selling thousands of records and selling out venues, he ended up as a valet parking cars for Nashville's upper echelon. Never one to shy away from a challenge, for the next 5 years Kenny would spend his spare time in between his 40 hour a week day-job writing and recording hundreds of songs both alone as well as with others. He immersed himself in his writing, drawing inspiration from the relationships and daily challenges that stem from the failures that drive one to succeed.
