Honduran-born Core enrolled in the L.A. Music Academy in 2006 and seriously expanded his vocabulary while still managing to hold onto the kind of controlled energy that can only be explained after seeing him in action.

I take none of the credit for the opportunities, experiences, and blessings in my life that I am sharing with you (not to say things have always been easy). Throughout my walk with the Lord, He has always been there through the thick and thin of things, and always at times when I have needed Him the most. I encourage you to seek him and have love & compassion for one another. Remember, we are only here for such a short time so hopefully we will make the best of it for the glory of God's kingdom, whatever the calling may be in your life.

RYAN, an independent female artist within the pop/rock genre, has been compared to a wide variety of different artists such as Evanescence, Tori Amos, Annie Lennox & Cher. Ryan has quoted, "I am in love with music for many reasons: the tones of a chord, the beauty of sound, the way a song can alter your emotions and the fact that we have a choice in how we want to feel. A song forms from a void- an idea, an experience, a need for expression. And singing, singing for me is the highest of highs."

12 year old Suite Caroline is an amazing musical talent. Some even call her a prodigy, because of her astounding songwriting and guitar playing abilities. Although she credits Taylor Swift and George Strait as being her mentors in the lyrics to one of her songs, Suite Caroline clearly has her own musical style, which you can hear in the new batch of songs she recently recorded in Nashville. She's a story-teller, and a really good one no matter what her age, because she is honest in her approach and describes things in such great detail. Listen to her music and you will hear a refreshing believability, and songs filled with positive messages and musical hooks normally only found in the works of musical masters.
