To Amanda Martin, singing is like breathing. Born and raised in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, she spent her early years listening to her parents perform the best of Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, and Waylon Jennings in the honky-tonks of the North Country. Amanda came to Nashville in 1999 to attend Belmont University’s Music Business Program from which she received her degree in 2003 in Music Business Management. During her second year at Belmont, she was awarded the prestigious “Best of Belmont” which afforded her the opportunity to perform with Vince Gill.

Wade Trammell was born on October 3rd 1992 in Rome Georgia. He spent the first 3 years of his life in a small town of Centre, Alabama. He then moved to Chattanooga, TN where he currently lives.
Early in life Wade grew up singing in the kids church choir and sang solos for his home church at First Baptist in Centre, Alabama. Wade grew up listening to some of Country music's greatest artists, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney and so many more.
He was very close with his uncle, Master Sergeant Warren Richey, who spent his career in the Air Force serving his country. Wade's biggest dream was to join the military and follow in his uncles foot steps. While still in middle school Wade was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and wasn't able to enlist in the Air Force. With that dream unavailable, he spent his high school years searching for who he wanted to be.
Always been inspired by country music, he started playing drums at age 10 and quickly developed the ability to become the full time drummer at his church. He became a member of the Boyd Buchanan High School marching band playing bass drum.
Being a bit afraid of being in the "spotlight", he imagined the glory of being a recording artist indpired by attending numerous Brad Paisley concerts and often pictured himself on stage. In February of 2009, Wade attended yet another Paisley concert and says that something just clicked in his head and that music was what he wanted to do. Shortly after seeing the fun and the excitement that music brought one of his music idols, at 16, Wade bought his first guitar and taught himself to play. He was then introduced to Grammy nominee and producer Brandon Barnes who had several number one hits for R&B super star Brian McKnight such as "Anytime" and " One Last Cry." Wade's first song titled "Remember Me," was one of the first songs recorded with Barnes. The two went on to record many more with one in particular that has stood out among many of Wade Trammell's fans. The song titled "American Hero has been a big part in Wade's local success around Chattanooga Tennessee and most of northeast Alabama. He wrote the song to pay tribute to a combat controller in the Air Force who lost his life. "It was the craziest thing" said wade. " All the years I dreamed of fighting for my country I never knew I would have the ability to use my voice to highlight the sacrifice of not only a man that was in the branch of service that I wanted to be in but the sacrifice of each and every member of our military." Since the song was recorded, Wade has traveled to California to perform the song for the 362nd Air force Recruiting squadron at an annual squadron event. Wade was awarded a General's coin as well as a Commander's coin which was a huge honor. In February of 2012 Wade organized an event to give back to the Wounded Warrior Family Foundation of Alabama. Wade put in a lot of hard work and sweat to bring this event to northeast Alabama. The work paid off with an attendance of over 1,000. Wade says the feeling he had walking out on that stage to give back to the military was a feeling like no other.
Since then Wade has had so many opportunities in the Music business. He recently signed a publishing deal with Best Built Songs in Nashville Tn. Wade now is working along side producers Larry Sheridan and Robin Ruddy building up a strong new song catalog.
