About Andrew Ripp – Andrew Ripp is a singer-songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Raised outside of Chicago, Ripp creates music that pushes the boundaries of genre stereotypes, blending the energetic beats of pop music into a soul culture and adding the depth & groove of soul music into a pop culture - all underlined by his personal journey of faith.
As a touring artist, Ripp has opened for Sara Bareilles, Andy Grammer, Needtobreathe, Jon Foreman, and the Plain White T’s. He has performed on high-profile TV shows including ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise and Entertainment Tonight and his songs have been featured on American Idol, House of Lies, and One Tree Hill.
“When you let everything go, you can start being real. I didn’t want to water down the songs to be more ‘commercial’. I aim to write the most honest music I can - and yes, some of them are more spiritual than others. It’s a part of my story I refuse to keep in the shadows just to make sure my music is more ‘accessible’. In today’s world, songs of love, overcoming adversity & redemption are songs that we all need to hear.”
About Tyler Rich – Tyler Rich is a Country Singer/Songwriter from a small Northern California farming community called Yuba City, and based in Nashville, TN. He found his love for country music after his cousin took him to see George Strait at the age of 8. From George, to Garth, to Alan Jackson, Tyler immersed himself into the music. Three months before his 14th birthday, his Grandparents surprised him with a guitar for Christmas, and he never stopped playing.
After countless hours working on his craft, and spending years on the road touring across the country with multiple bands, Tyler decided it was time to pursue his career as a solo artist.
Since that day Tyler has performed alongside some of the industry’s top artists including, Cole Swindell, Sam Hunt, Dan + Shay, Gloriana, Canaan Smith, Maddie & Tae, and more! Tyler’s first single “Radio”, hit iTunes in May 2015 and is already getting rotations on numerous radio stations across the country, including iHeartRadio.
