Originally from St. Louis, MO, I wound up in Nashville in 2013 after many failed attempts at living a fulfilling life. I moved here to reclaim myself and was reminded of my passion for music. I began writing more seriously and have met wonderful people who have cheered me on and have supported me along the way. Many of these people have believed in me even when I did not. With no plans of "making it big", I simply sing and play music because it feeds something inside of me."
It’s a long story” she says, with a smile, of how she ended up where she is today.
Alexis Wilkins speaks the truth and owns who she is with her unapologetic storytelling, cowboy-like leaning, and definitive pull from the past. She honors country tradition while adding relevance and current commentary. Arkansas-bred and Nashville-based singer/songwriter and commanding artist; Wilkins struck platinum with her debut single release garnering over 1,000,000 streams across key platforms. With this came accolades and endorsements from CMT, American Songwriter, Today in Nashville, and more.
Jessica Willis Fisher
Guided by joy, courage, and gratitude, Jessica Willis Fisher reclaims her voice on her debut solo album, Brand New Day. By centering her story around original songs, expressive vocals, and acoustic arrangements, she begins an authentic new journey after a dramatic and sudden departure from her family’s band.
“Music has been one of the things that's helped me survive,” she says. “It is a therapy for me and yet it betrayed me and broke me down at some point. So, coming back, it's been full circle. I would say the last five or six years have been, step-by-step, about reacquainting myself and getting a whole new lease on my creative life. For me, music is about getting to know myself better. It’s really, really important to me. I feel lucky to be coming back to it.”
