Maxfield Camp: Maxfield is a country singer/songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee. He is new to the stage, as he just found his voice last summer. He comes from a family of musicians: his father was an accomplished Christian Singer/Songwriter and his mother has been singing her whole life. Growing up, Maxfield played football throughout middle school and high school, earning himself a scholarship to Maryville College. During his time at Maryville, he found himself in the piano room playing for hours each day instead of going to class and decided to drop out after a short 2 months. After a year of working back in Nashville, he located to Orlando, FL. Now a student at Full Sail University, he has learned to overcome his past mistakes. To symbolize this, Maxfield wears a “promise ring” every day to remind himself of where he has been and to treat women with the same respect he desires to one day treat his wife. His motivation for competing on The Glee Project is to win the respect of a girl he loved and lost. Maxfield originally auditioned for The Glee Project at the Nashville open casting call. As of 2013, he is part of the ABC TV series Nashville cast. Jeremy Bussey: Jeremy Bussey grew up in the small town of Sylvan Springs, Alabama just outside of Birmingham. Like most kids, he loved to fish, hunt and basically anything outdoors. At the age of 5, he found something else he loved, music. He started taking piano lessons, writing his own songs and eventually made his way to Nashville, Tn. Jeremy started playing songwriter nights all over Nashville. He continued to work at crafting his lyrical skills and ultimately caught the attention of Ron Stuve at Universal Music Publishing Group in 2010. These days, he has become the “go to guy” for great lyrics and song ideas. Michael Whitworth: Michael Whitworth sprung into the country scene in 2010 with his first EP, " God Only Knew" the first single Just As Surprised As You was an immediate success. His anticipated sophomore 4-song EP titled, "Learning How To Love" was released that Fall to enthusiastic reviews from critics including Billboard Discoveries.
