Kathleen Regan is a 22 year old singer and songwriter from Boston, MA with a catchy folk/pop vibe. She has been influenced by many genres over the years, something you can hear in her music at a first listen. Kathleen began writing songs at age 10, and picked up her first guitar at age 13. Soon after, she found herself performing at local cafe’s and theatrical productions around New England. After graduating Holliston High School in 2012, she knew the artist route was the direction she wanted to go in. She spent some time in Los Angeles writing and collaborating with any artist she could get in studio with. She quickly found songwriting stood out as the heart of her craft and that Nashville, TN would be the next step. Months after moving south at age 19, Kathleen got in the studio to record her debut EP, Thank the Dirt, with one of the best producers in town. This EP helped direct her to the sound she had been working to achieve. Kathleen has been compared to the likes of Colbie Caillat, Jewel, and Maren Morris – all women who write with daring personality and each bring something new to their genre. On October 28th 2016, Kathleen will be releasing her first self-titled EP. This album will consist of 4 brand new songs, written with some of Nashville’s favorite songwriters. One being a woman by the name of Sarah Siskind, a americana artist who has had her songs recorded by one of Kathleen’s favorites – Alison Krauss. “To say getting in the studio to write with Sarah was a dream come true would be a huge understatement” Kathleen smiles, talking about their tune “Risk it All”. Her debut EP will be available on iTunes and Spotify on October 28th.
While judging Sunday morning auditions at The Bluebird Cafe, a young Illinois transplant named Adam James took the stage and his songwriting talent was immediately evident. We we so enthralled by his potential that we hung with him later that week and asked him to play us every one of his songs. Adam went on to sign a publishing deal with Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member Jeffrey Steele. Like MCU artist Steve Moakler, Dierks Bentley cut one of Adam’s songs. In fact, four MCU artists, Adam, Steve, Heather Morgan, and Ross Copperman, all have cuts on Dierk’s “Black” album, and Ross, now a big time country producer, produced it. Now there’s an MCU trivia question in the making!
