Matt Commerce is a singer/songwriter from Virginia whose style incorporates catchy tunes, acoustic guitar, and a beautiful soulful voice.
Commerce began playing the cello and stand-up bass as a child before picking up the guitar at the age of twenty and becoming a full-time performer within two years. Matt relocated to California and began performing at venues all across the West Coast. He joined a band and released “Closer Than You Realize,” a first album with “addictive songs you find yourself humming long after you’ve listened…”
“One of the most delightful audio discoveries in quite some time…” (North County Times). (From the San Diego Troubadour) The San Diego City Beat added “It would be hard to find another artist who exudes as much uplift in such a believable way.”
Adam Lasher is an artist who appeared on FOX’s American Idol in the 2015 season and was a finalist in the 2016 season. Adam originally auditioned in New Orleans, with an original song called “These Shoes,” and instantly became a favorite of the judges. When they inquired about a small black bag fastened to his guitar strap, Adam revealed that he is a type 1 diabetes to a national audience.
Jennifer Lopez initially mistook Adam for Jimmy Fallon in disguise due to the striking likeness. This resulted in Jimmy Fallon performing a Ryan Seacrest impression on The Tonight Show. Adam is also dedicated to improving the lives of other Type 1 Diabetics by raising awareness of new diabetes medical advances.
Jackie Foster is a versatile songwriter and vocalist who fills the room with her warm, rich tone and powerful voice, leaving you wanting more.

Jackie is recognized for her soaring belts and vocal prowess, not to mention her dominance of the stage, after a record-setting run on The Voice, reaching the Semi-Finals in Season 14. This was confirmed in August 2019, when she made her live debut at Chicago’s Lollapalooza Music Festival. Jackie relocated to Los Angeles as a result of her achievement.
Her goal has always been to tell her tales and connect with admirers all across the world. Jackie’s style is peppy and simple to groove to, which, when combined with her unflinchingly honest lyrics, explains why she is so popular.
