Country Music singer/songwriter Todd O’Neill has been perfecting his self-described “pure Louisiana soul” sound in countless honky-tonks and dance halls for more than a decade. Todd’s whiskey-soaked vocals recently earned him the reigning Champion title of the Nash Next Challenge, further cementing his place in Music City. Hailing from Hammond, Louisiana, Todd applied the homegrown creative philosophy he was raised on when crafting his unique musical recipe: blending Cajun zydeco and New Orleans R&B with Nashville’s reflective lyricism. Todd is currently working on his debut single, produced by Jay DeMarcus of Country supergroup, Rascal Flatts which is expected to impact Country radio in 2017 on Nash Next Records under the Big Machine Label Group umbrella.

Kristin Diable has been exploring freedom and choice in her music ever since she picked up an open mic at a lounge in Baton Rouge and stunned the audience into silence. She rode that vibe, away to New York and then back to her native Louisiana like a storm front, one that shook New Orleans and cooled the air. And her newest album, Create Your Own Mythology, invokes her Louisiana and Americana roots, while firing a rock-and-roll shot across the bow of borrowed myths.
