At age 20, the singer, songwriter, and actor Elle Winter has already amassed a strong fan-base from her early successes in the music and entertainment industry. With her debut EP “Yeah No”, Winter’s unique voice and emotional approach to songwriting is set to reach more people than ever before. Born and raised in New York City, Winter took to music at a very young age. Her formal introduction to the entertainment industry was through an acting course at the age of seven, which culminated in a showcase where a manager saw her talent. A few years later, she was discovered by Radio Disney and took part in their “Next Big Thing” program that included the release of several singles and a national tour in which she began building a fan-base.
As Winter made her way through high school, she continued pursuing her music career along with acting, with roles in films Three Generations and the Netflix comedy The After Party. Throughout this period, Winter worked on new songs and independently released the single “One More” in 2018. A radio tour followed, as well as spots on The TODAY Show and the honorifics of being named Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month, as well as KIIS FM’s Next Up Artist.
In the beginning of 2019, Winter signed with Sony’s The Orchard off the strength of her forthcoming EP. The songs were largely written over the past year and a half, but the music represents an artistic course that Winter set for herself six years previous. On a majority of the EP’s tracks, Winter worked with production team The Orphanage, who has notched credits on recent albums from Demi Lovato and Alessia Cara, and has given Winter’s music the unique pop flavor it possesses. The EP zeroes in on Winter’s personal experiences—who she is and where she’s been—and there’s no better evidence of that perspective than standout single “Yeah No,” written in Nashville at the end of a relationship about an ex that wouldn’t leave her alone. It is that communal feeling that is sure to spread when Winter’s ebullient, nakedly honest pop music makes its way to listeners everywhere.

Kevin Ross is a multi-faceted singer, songwriter and producer who had quickly gone from performing once every three months to opening for R&B/Soul legend Maxwell five times a week.
Ross, who began his career as a songwriter, got his big break when he secured his first placement with Jamie Foxx after graduating from college. In 2012, the Washington, D.C. native signed a major recording deal with Motown Records and released his first major project, Dialogue in the Grey (EP), two years later.
2014 proved to be a breakout year for Kevin Ross. Known for his soul-drenched, buttery, smooth vocals, he was named AOL’s “Best New Artist of 2014” and landed a national holiday campaign with Glade that brought joy to American households across the country. His journey to the stardom, however, wasn’t an easy one. Ross maintained his star power via social media by showcasing his undeniable talent through a series of mash-up music videos. “My mash-up videos are something that helps stretch my musicality and creativity.” he says.
After a few delays, Ross released his long-awaited debut full length album The Awakening in March of 2017. The album’s first single, “Long Song Away” peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Song chart and at Urban Contemporary Radio with the follow up single “Don’t Go” cracking the Top 15. The chart-topping success of The Awakening led to Ross receiving several award nominations: Best New Artist (Soul Train Awards), Outstanding New Artist (NAACP Image Awards), and New R&B Artist (iHeart Radio Awards) and headlining his first national tour. In September of that same year, he released his third studio project, Drive (EP).
Following the release of Drive (EP), Ross found himself in a transition that led to a brief hiatus from music. He’s been hard at work in the studio preparing new music for fans that have been patiently awaiting his return to enjoy. Luckily, they won’t have to wait for long. Audacity, Ross’ fourth studio project, is slated to be independently released in 2020 on his new label (Art Society Music Group/ EMPIRE). “Creating Audacity has been an exciting process for me. I really followed my instincts and let the music guide me the whole way.” he says. “This album has a lot more grit to it. It introduces new sides of me while still reinforcing the essence of my art.”
