After playing college basketball for Drury University for four years, Stell stood at a crossroads. One road led to Cambridge, Mass. where Stell was accepted into Harvard University's Extension School pre-med program. The other road pointed toward Nashville and a career in country. Stell made the choice to follow his dreams of writing and performing. The 6'7"-Center Ridge, Ark. native and self-taught vocalist and guitar-player made the move to Music City in 2014, landing a publishing and management deal with Wide Open Music and a record deal with Barry Weiss' RECORDS/Arista Nashville.
Bandi, a St. Louis native, has been writing songs since high school. He began making the trek to Nashville while attending Ole Miss, playing clubs and later moving to Nashville after graduation. Bandi scored a publishing deal with BMG and a RECORDS label deal earlier this year. An EP is expected to release in early 2020.
Fulcher, Fulcher, a Harlem, Ga., co-wrote eight songs on Luke Combs' debut, "This One's For You," including "When It Rains It Pours and "Even Though I'm Leaving." Fulcher was inspired to go out and buy a guitar after seeing an Eric Church concert at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, Ga. when he was 21 years old. Shortly after Fulcher graduated from the University of Georgia he moved to Nashville to pursue his songwriting and artist career. In 2016 after signing a publishing deal with River House Publishing, Ray released his Here We Go Again EP which led to touring with Combs and Morgan Wallen. Fulcher put out his "Somebody Like Me" EP on May 24.
