J.C.Wauson - After a recent change in songwriting direction, J.C. plans to begin releasing new music again in 2023. His newest single, “To the New Gym Bros,” drops on New Year’s Day. A drastic departure from Interim. “To The New Gym Bros” takes a more comical approach, providing an affectionate parody of gym culture with a moral…somewhere in there.


Rex Williams – Rex has placed on his website, https://bransondigitalband.com/, a number of his original songs, both studio produced for demonstration and songs for which he is the sole artist filling the role of writer, producer, engineer and utilizes digital technology across each recording project: preproduction, recording, mixing, and mastering which blends the entrepreneurial, creative, and technical roles. Since the studio produced songs are only for demonstration purposes, the demo recordings are not for sale but are provided as a means of encouraging other artists to consider using the lyrics and music in their future recordings.
