Mitchell Tenpenny: Mitchell Tenpenny is an accomplished songwriter whose self-titled EP and debut single, Drunk Me, are out now and reflect his rich, gritty, soul-infused music that is tethered in themes intrinsic to the South. A Nashville native with an industry pedigree (his grandmother was Donna Hilley, the esteemed, CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing), Tenpenny comes from fertile ground with musical influences as far-flung as Michael Jackson, John Mayer, the Oak Ridge Boys, and R. Kelly. He co-wrote the Top 5 hit, If the Boot Fits, for Granger Smith. Seaforth: Seaforth are 25-year-old Sydney born and bred duo Mitch Thompson and Tom Jordan. Both hailing from the Northern Beaches, the talented singer/songwriters have been solidly forging their own paths since a tender young age. As a young singer, Tom first began solo performances busking in Sydney and his songwriting career began shortly after at age 11 when he wrote a song in 6th-grade class called “Back Home”. Tom says, “it was about going shopping with Mum and not wanting to be there”. His dislike of shopping aside, the song won him awards for original composition in the Music and Arts Talent Search Teen Writers competition in early 2005.
